"Surviving due to my detox at The Woodlands"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / The Woodlands (inpatient unit for substance misuse)

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

The staff at The Woodlands have been brilliant and very caring and has helped me through my detox.

I felt safe and secure during my stay at the Woodlands. I feel that having my own room and privacy helped me feel safe.

I liked the place and the way it is setup, found it easy to manage.

The detox itself is not so scary as you think due to the staff support and the enviroment.

I would not be here if this place did not exist, because we need more places like this available to the wider public.

My confidence is back and myself worth. My life is worth living again and I can be supportive Mother and Grandparent again.

My advise is go for it and give it a go

A very big thank you to all the staff at The Woodlands xxxxx
