“It is the best thing I ever did. To be able to speak honestly and to have a clear mind is something that I don’t even remember. Gambling had almost taken my life so it is unbelievable to be out of debt and to have a clear mind.”
“It is the first time in years that I have been able to open up about what is really going on in my head. The sessions on a Wednesday with my family were invaluable as they now know what is going on for me and how they can support me in a positive way after treatment.”
“Bushypark gave me a place to feel heard and supportive as addiction is a very difficult situation to deal with at home. The associated behaviours are so damaging to the family so it was good to understand the difference between the addicted person and the behaviour of the person. The follow-up from the four Wednesdays to the family support group in Ennis each week is invaluable as I believe we need an ongoing programme same as my son is getting in aftercare.”
