"I would like to express my gratitude to all the staff who supported my daughter through her addiction"

About: Ashley House

(as a carer),

My daughter has been in treatment services at Ashley house since 2010, she has successfully completed a treatment program and has now had a good period of time in recovery.

I would like to thank and express my gratitude to all the staff that supported my daughter through her addiction. I am a single parent and main carer for my daughter and her 2 children and I would like to attend the therapy sessions at Vida but unfortunately I work fulltime hours.

If Ashley house were to run an evening session of the therapies this would really benefit people like me who also have other obligations. I have been to one of the daytime sessions at Vida and found the atmosphere relaxing, friendly and theraputic. I also found it beneficial to share stories and experiences with other carers in this setting.

Response from Philip Gibson, Team Manager, Community Drugs Team

Thank you for your posting and kind words.Its good to know we have helped your daughter and that she is maintaining her recovery.

We have had similar requests as yours recently about an evening session for our holistic therapies so I will ensure they are disussed with both the managers within Ashley House,Vida and the commissioner of services Steve Eastwood
