Smithfield Alcohol and Drug Inpatient Detox

From the moment I walked in I was greeted by very friendly staff who made me feel more relaxed. Everything was explained about what was happening where and when and by whom and the reasons why. I was shown around the facility and taken to my room to settle in. Various staff checked on me regularly until the medications I needed and the injection had been done. Everything was extremely organised and increased my confidence in to venturing from my room to meet other clients - all of which were welcoming and willing to explain their reasons for being there and asking me mine (but saying that I didn't have to if I didn't want to). I told them anyway - alcohol. Anyway, I had already decided to attend every single session available and I did. I learned so much about my addiction and myself it is unbelievable! The group sessions were inspirational and some very useful information was passed on between the clients who attended. I found myself talking others into going to the sessions and when they turned their nose up I'd say "well what else have you got to do?". I would highly recommend that clients attended all that is on offer because they really give your mood a great boost and helps you to relax with others which is why it's such a lovely, friendly atmosphere. Basically when I was admitted on 19th May 2015 I was an ashamed and anxious person with no confidence in myself, looking gaunt and feeling like rubbish. When I left on 26th May 2015 I was happy, feeling good about myself, more confident, eating well and fully backed with support 24 hours a day. I WANT TO REALLY THANK ALL THE STAFF AT SMITHFIELD INCLUDING DOMESTIC STAFF FOR BEING REALLY NICE, MORE THAN HELPFUL AND NATURALLY A BUNCH OF FRIENDLY, CARING PEOPLE. I feel FANTASTIC and although I did it myself I couldn't have done it without your brilliant support. Thank you so much. Please feel free to pass this on to anyone. Happy regards Lisa Mears
