"Getting help at Chill Out Sound Support"

About: Addiction services (community) / COSS (Chill Out Sound Support)

(as the patient),

I was referred to COSS by my GP after some bad times with alcohol.

I was assigned to one member of staff who i saw every two weeks.

Basically it was an open discussion about my problem and my life and how I can structure myself to achieve the goals I wanted, not just based on the drinking.

It was quite informal and unimposing, my counsellor was friendly and easy to talk to and I was able to not only get the things I needed to off my chest, but also set myself a plan of action in my life, work and so on.
