"Detox and counselling"

About: Lives Lived Well - Caboolture

(as a service user),

I became involved with Lived Lives Well for struggling with addiction. During my time with Caboolture branch, I found the services to be really supportive, understanding and without that feeling of being judged. I commenced an outpatient detox regime and attended counselling with the social worker.  I connected with her as she was genuine and honest.

Over the next 6 months I remained in contact with her. She offered tools to combat addiction, although I did relapse. However this did not matter, she continued to be professional and supportive. Through her counseling it was evident that I required time out from the pressures of working full time and other external factors. I attended Hader Clinic for a 28 day program. At the time of writing this, I am 31 days clean all thanks to Lives Lived Well and their ongoing support which identified the treatment I required.

Dear Dr Feelgood 77,

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how our Caboolture Team helped you overcome your struggles with substances. You should be very proud of yourself at 31 days clean. It is encouraging that you gained insight into relapse and were able to return to your support worker and get the assistance you needed to start again.

Some days are good, and some days are difficult - keep going on your journey of abstinance knowing that you can always seek additional support from Lives Lived Well.

Keep up the good work and all the best for a successful, substance free future.

Kind regards,
