Change is possible

"I'm a recovering heroin/crack addict.

I started treatment through EDAS around June/July 2019.

By August I had minimised using to once a week and September I had completely stopped. I had been using for almost ten years so for me this was a massive step. The support offered by EDAS has been fantastic. I received Hep C treatment through EDAS and completed that in January.

My keyworker has been fantastic and is always happy to take my call. The support given to me by EDAS has made it possible for me to regain a normal life. I'm now back working as a hypnotherapist and often offer support to addicts myself. Perhaps the NHS might consider taking on a few hypnotherapists in the future.

So it's November 2020, I am down to 3ml of methadone twice a day and am finally ready for a Subutex detox. I plan to be off opioids within a month.

It has been a long road for me but I would never have found my way without the support of the EDAS services. A big thank you to all the staff at EDAS."
