"My experience at Mackay day program delivered by Terri-Lee & Cathy"

About: Lives Lived Well - Mackay

(as the patient),

I was nervous at first about entering a rehab program and did not know what to expect. It was a breath of fresh air! Terri-Lee & Cathy were both friendly, attentive to my personal needs, understanding, informative, professional and have a wonderful ability to relate and, I believe, offered each student their wealth of knowledge and showed their ability to help nurture the sensitivity and individuality of my own unique journey that had led me to use drugs as a form of self-medication.

The fact that the class not only offered a safe place to learn together without judgement, but the hot coffee and food/snacks provided was fantastic. I had no money at all at the time and with this it certainly helped keep focus within the group and I want to say thank you. The graduation day Bowling and meal from Sorbello's topped it off! A wonderful way to come together to celebrate and reflect on how far we had come and knowing we were always welcome to drop in to say hello has made me feel less alone in one of the hardest times of my life. 

Thank you to all the staff at Lives Lived Well. I certainly have already spread the word to some of my friends that have been interested in turning a new leaf and weren't sure where to start. In my experience, the Day Program is a great way to get a better understanding of our self and would highly recommend the program in the future. Thank you All

Dear earthangel83,

It's great to read how well the day-programs are going across Lives Lived Well - since implementation, we have had so many positive stories about them. It's so good to hear that across the board, participants feel supported and safe. An added bonus of course is the hot coffee and snacks!

Thank you for sharing your experience, and of course spreading the word amongst friends who are also considering a change in their lives. The first step is the hardest, and you've done it. Well done and keep up the great work - but remember that when you need additional support, you just need to reach out and call. Staff are always happy to support you on your journey.

All the best.
