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.

I saw their Detox Doctor on arrival and the fear went away.

Matthew’s story

I had been abusing alcohol for years. I had great anxiety and fear regarding my alcohol detox. I had spoken with my own doctor on numerous occasions over the years and he had gone to great lengths to stress the importance of not just quitting unsupervised due to my extremely high level of alcohol consumption. ECR was brilliant. I saw their Detox Doctor on arrival and the fear went away. The staff helped me cope with the anxiety during the detox, but the fear was gone. Amazing.

A relief to know I did not have to go through this alone.

Carl’s story

Before I came into ECR I was worried about detoxing more than anything else, the thought of withdrawal scared me the most. When I arrived I saw the doctor and was prescribed a medical detox which was to replace the drugs I was addicted to and help prevent any severe withdrawals. The detox period was a lot smoother than I expected and at any point I was uncomfortable or worried there was always staff there for me to talk to. The support from my peers and the groups helped greatly during this time and it was a relief to know I did not have to go through this alone, there was always someone else that had been through exactly the same as me.
