After 25 years of drinking and not being able to stop and, in my opinion, turned down by one doctor who said stop or it will kill you and then referred to treatment services by another, where I was given the advice don't stop or it will kill you, I eventually found The Basement Recovery Project based in the YMCA in Halifax.
From the moment I walked through the doors, I was welcomed by friendly staff, staff who were just like me, staff who had been there, where I was, and staff who knew what was going on inside.
I attended their Recovery Programme and have not had a drink since.
Quite honestly, they saved my life. They were the last in line, without them, I literally had nowhere else to go, not even the gutter - as I was already there.
If you have a drink or drug problem, I would recommend getting in touch with The Basement Project.
