"The best thing I have ever done"

About: Phoenix Futures / Barnsley drug and alcohol services

(as the patient),

I am at Phoenix Futures and it is the best thing I have ever done.

We do lots of things like Conservation Therapy Programme, where we are building a platform in a lake for disabled children so they can go on the platform with their fishing nets and hopefully catch some fish.

We travel from Barnsley to Doncaster in a minibus, we take some lunch and some drinks.It gets us out in fresh air, we work as a team and all get on very well.

I am an alcoholic but slowly getting over it. I feel so much better in myself and hope the rest of the group are doing as well as I am, thank you Phoenix

Thank you for your comment. We think our Conservation Therapy Programme (CTP) is a valuable part of our programmes at Phoenix. It helps both you in your recovery and - as you say- it helps out the community as well. With all the best wishes to you for your continued recovery.
