I have been in shared care for a few years at my gp's with a key worker also seeing me every so often from the drug and alchol service. I am really distressed and upset that the goverment have stopped shared care.
I think it has helped me alot, basically I've been off drugs/alcohol for over 5 years and I didnt like mixing with other users at the drug and alcohol service so i went into shared care.
I'ts really good for people who have come so far in life because nobody can judge you as nobody knows your business when you go and see your gp, but when you go to the drug and alcohol service everybody knows your business and it makes you feel like your back on that bad road again and around temptation.
I really think people need to come together and talk about shared care and put there point over to people because i think its really disgusting how shared care can be taken away out of service when its helped so many people thats had problems making them alot better. I think when shared care is such a big part of someones life it shouldn't be taken away because they isn't enough funding to keep it going and there should of been something in place in case shared care did get stopped.
Now the people that have done so well, like me, to make a difference in my life have to go back to drug and alcohol service to see a drug worker and mix with all them people who are still on drugs and its not very nice.
I really hope writing this letter will be put across to someone that can actually do something about the issue that ive stated and hopefully for something to be done about it because if things keep going on the way there are people that have come so far in life and made them self clean with the support from shared care are going to go straight back down the wrong road again
