"Chill Out Sound Support"

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

(as the patient),

For many years I have had an ongoing problem with using drugs and alcohol. On several occasions I have tried to get clean with varying degrees of success, but I could never seem to get a new way of living to stick.

After my latest relapse my wife suggested I try something new and, on my behalf, found out about Chill Out Sound Support via the magic of the interweb.

I have found this service to be an immense help to me. Through weekly counselling sessions they have helped me to empower myself and take responsibility for changing my behaviour.

The counsellors offer help in a non-judgemental atmosphere and provide you with tools to make rational, healthy decisions. They also offer complementary therapies as an adjunct to counselling. I have been having auricular (ear) acupuncture and am really enjoying it; it is the most relaxing half an hour of my week.

Now I am living my dream: a more healthy, balanced life where I am kind to myself and useful to other people.
