I was taken to A and E after having a fit from alcohol. The doctor came to see me and said that they would admit me and give me a detox,
A detox usually from five to seven days, and medication was commenced. The next day after being put on a drip via cannula and given a good dose of a drug called Librium the ward doctor who I thought had a very rude and ignorant attitude told me I was going home. I said what with medication, and was told no. I asked well is it safe for me to drink, and was told no you must carry on drinking,
So they have spent all that money on giving me a quarter of a detox to let me back out to drink alcohol again, and possible end up doing further damage to myself due to my addiction.
This is crazy and a total waste of nhs funds
