"In a positive place with the help of Ashley House"

About: Ashley House

(as a service user),

I came to Ashley House 6 months ago drinking over 130 units a week, my child was put in child protection due to domestic violence and my drinking.

Now 6 months later with the help of Ashley House workers (home visits, 1-1 conversations) I'm down to 6-8 units a week, my son's off child protection and my life's looking positive for the first time in a long while. Without the help I received I think I'd be in a very unhappy place now.
