"Enjoyed the group work and exercise"

About: North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust / Addiction services

(as a service user),

After initially feeling daunted about coming here, I have found my stay excellent.

The staff have been sensitive to my personal circumstances and welcoming. They made me feel at home and not just another statistic. The group work was useful and eye opening and the exercise sessions have given me my motivation back to regain my health and life back.

Being here has given me the confidence to face my issues in other positive ways and not look back. This stay has given me and my family a positive fresh start.

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience, these comments are great to feed back to staff and we will ensure that this happens.

Sharing thoughts about your initial fears and then what your actual experience and outcomes were is also very valuable for other service users to read as may help to allay some of their anxieties.

Kind regards and thanks
