When being invited to the women's group at Clearways by my alcohol nurse I attended thinking this would be great, as I live quite an isolated life and thought the company of others would do me good.
When I arrived I was let in an not greeted by any of the receptionists who were too busy chatting to each other. It must then have been at least 10/15 minutes before I was kindly asked if I would like a drink. I sat with my drink but felt very lonely and lost as I was not introduced to anyone.
Needless to say, I haven't been since. I was expecting a nice warm reception and some good company but unfortunately didn't experience these things.
