"Recovering from alcohol dependence"

About: Addiction services (community) / Oxford Corner, Specialist Alcohol Team

(as the patient),

I attended Oxford corner in April this year and started to see my key worker, where an alcohol reduction programme was agreed.

I later decided that this was not working so decided to go down the detox route. This was arranged, meanwhile I became ill and was not able to drink so my key worker advised me that if I remained abstinent I would not need to detox, this I did and have been abstinent since.

All this time I have had the support of my key worker Jackie and also Kerry who ran the abstinence group.

I just feel so much better, I will be sad to be discharged, but Oxford Corner changed my life so much for the better.

Dear Ewa123

Thank you for sharing your story. The team at Oxford Corner have obviously made such a difference to your life.

Well done for remaining abstinent and good luck in the future.
