Client Comments for the Detox Unit

  • " I am easily influenced by other people so I thought this type of detox might be better for me."

  •  

  • "I have never had a detox experience like I had in here. I have walked out of other detoxifications time and time again due to other people. The one-to-one worked."

  •  

  • " The detox focuses on the most important thing, me ! There are no distractions, temptations or other peoples issues."

  •  

  • "You aren't made to feel that you are getting in the way. You don't have to ask for anything."

  •  

  • "I think that the day programme helps to occupy the day, as when you are bored during detox is when your mind starts to wander and think about drugs."

  •  

  • "I didn't always have to take part in lessons if I didn't want to. In here it is down to yourself and what you want to do."

  •  

  • "The experience was better than my expectations. I expected to be more like a private hospital room but it was more like a welcoming hotel."

  •  

  • "I felt more protected here than when doing a home detox. There were no outside influences."

  •  

  • " I didn't have to stick to a strict regime in here. I didn't have to take part in group discussions or confrontations, which is not always the best place to get things off your chest. Here I could do things in my own time."

  •  

  • "The one-to-one has taken me out of the daily grind of heroin and crack cocaine user lifestyle. I now feel that I have choices again."

  •  

  • "The individual basis puts you in a position where the only person you can let down is yourself. You can't give yourself that alibi unless you've got someone to provide it."

  •  

  • "Taking responsibility for my medication was important to me. It made me feel more like I was in control and like real life."
