Will it work for me?
A question most of our clients must ask themselves when they contemplate making that first important move to pick up the phone or visit the DAS building.
It’s impossible to answer. Each person’s situation is unique, and the reasons for making a decision to tackle alcohol misuse will depend on their own circumstances and level of motivation.
But many clients who have come to us with acute problems, have achieved very positive outcomes…
“I must say my life would not be as good as it is at the moment if weren’t for the services offered, and cannot help but think I would either still be drinking or actually dead if this place never existed.”
“I thought I was the only one feeling so ashamed about my behaviour in drink.”
“My life is so much better, I’ve grown in confidence and found a new meaning to life without a drink. I’ve been dry now for nearly ten months.”
“The more I used the service the more hopeful I became.”
“The staff made me feel welcome, and sat and talked to me about the different services provided. I went away feeling hopeful for my future.”
