What do our service users says about us?
“I came to Wirral Ways To Recovery in July 2016. It was a really big step for me, as I have worked in recovery services previously. Following a relapse at the beginning of the year, after almost 4 years abstinent, I knew I had to seek help and support as I was unable to stop drinking just on my own. I am really enjoying my recovery journey with Wirral Ways to Recovery, I am abstinent and feel much healthier. I have recently completed the 6 month Foundations of Recovery programme which I really enjoyed. I believe that I grew as a person and gained strength from the programme. I am also now a volunteer Service User Involvement Representative which is a role I am really developing in and gaining lots more knowledge around recovery from and I have just started my 15 week diploma course in Peer Mentoring which I’m really enjoying. I would like to thank all my peers and staff for reigniting my passion for not only my own but others recovery and all the support and help I have received from everyone”
