"They helped me through very difficult times"

About: Orkney Alcohol Counselling and Advisory Service

(as the patient),

I came to be using this service after I landed myself in a lot of bother with the law which came about through issues in my past going back to childhood. I never really thought much about the consequences until one day I was forced to face reality and I was suddenly in a very dark and lonely place in my life.

After having been to several different professionals who could do nothing for me I managed to get an appointment with OACAS and from there they helped me through very difficult times and helped me to make much needed changes in my life.

I am still using this service and whilst there is still ongoing issues in my life this has helped me learn how to deal with them and when I wondered if there could be a better future for me I am now certain there is and more than that I am determined to make it happen. I only wish I had used this service before it went too far for me, but better late than never.
