"My recovery"

About: Phoenix Futures / Barnsley drug and alcohol services

(as the patient),

I have been a service user for about a year now, the first 2 times I was unsuccesful each time I came back I was treated exactly the same which realy impressed me.This time, however, I have managed to complete the course I suppose its 3rd time lucky.

Seriously though I would recommend Phoenix to anyone who seriously wants to look at and change their addictive behaviour it does work I am living proof of that.Through Phoenix building my confidence I am starting a college course in september and hoping to start some kind of voluntary work.

I am also reducing on my medication which I would not have contemplated without Phoenix. So my advice would be what you got to loose and you might even gain something.
