The support from staff and peers was a vital help.

Jo’s story

I came to ECR coming off methadone and heroin. I had a lot of fears coming into treatment, and the fear of detoxing was one of them, my past experiences with detoxes had been a failure. Generally, my detox at ECR went smoothly, only slight levels of discomfort in my head. I had believed it was going to be hellish. How wrong I was! The support from staff and peers was a vital help as most had been through drug withdrawals and their loving support gave me strength. With ECR’s help, I became free of substances for the first time in a very long time, and continue to remain so.
