"My mixed experience of substance misuse services"

About: Cheshire And Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust / Addiction services North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust / Addiction services

(as the patient),

I did not have a good experience of the staff at Leighton Hospital, who did not seem emotionally strong. My experience of Leighton is one sadness.

Whereas, Edward Myers Centre Stoke - the care and understanding I received was the catalyst for my recovery. I cannot speak too highly of the Edward Myers centre. It was a sanctuary.
