"back on streets"

About: Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust / Addiction services (community)

(as a service user),

Being a service user and an addict myself, in recovery for more than 2yrs, I would like to vent my real frustration at the government cutbacks and all the people it will effect. Most of all the addicts that really need support and access to treatment on a daily basis, some cases hourly.

Thats where the carers come in to it. they aren't going to be able to treat the person who doesn't want to go out and steal to make money to feed their addiction,but if the hostels close it will put more people on the streets and just add to the mounting troubles.

Response from Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust

Hostel services are not provided by our Trust therefore we are sadly unable to give any feedback about impending closures.

If you would like to take this further can I suggest you contact the hostels you refer to? They may be able to let you know what is planned after the closures and respond to your concerns, which we share.

Thank you for your comments
