The ONLY way I can describe my stay in Hafan Wen Detox Clinic is – lifechanging. After being an inpatient here for 2 weeks I am no longer dependant on Alcohol and thanks to the staff that organised it, I will be continuing my rehabilitation at Penrhyn House in Bangor for 6 months.
I now understand my destructive behaviours that led to my addiction and can recognise and deal with cravings and urges. Every member of staff has been unbelievable to help me to get to this stage, I am motivated and for the first time positive about my future all thanks to the nurses / volunteers at Hafan Wen.
I am not exaggerating to say I owe my life to Hafan Wen as my addiction was only going to lead to one thing. I can walk out hold my head up high and proudly say I am sober and with continued help go forth with my recovery leading to the best possible life for me and my children.
From the bottom of my heart thank you so much to all the staff they are truly incredible and if anyone is lucky enough to get the opportunity to stay if they are unfortunate enough to need to, then speaking from experience grab the opportunity with both hands as if you want it and engage with the program it will change your life.
