Turning Point

Temple Chambers, 4 Temple St, Swindon SN1 1SQ, UK – 01793 328150

I have been going to CGL for the last 5 months, i would highly recommend them to anyone who has the motivation to get clean but needs support to do it. My addiction was codeine, and i had been using codeine for just over 10 years. While i had been mentally ready to get clean for a good year or so, i was unable to deal with the withdrawal without relapsing. I tried a slow reduction of my codeine intake through my local gp, and tried going cold turkey, both multiple times but always relapsed. After registering with CGL and going through an assessment, i had an appointment with a doctor at CGL who put me onto buprenorphine in order to alleviate the withdrawal symptoms of stopping taking codeine. I also was invited to attend some group sessions each week focused around dealing with stress and triggers that normally would result in taking a substance (codeine in my case) and how to identify problems in my environment that could lead to a relapse and how to preemptively change them. I have now been clean from codeine for 4 and a half months, the longest i have ever gone without codeine in the 10 years ive been using it. I can confidently say i am going to succeed in staying clean from codeine and that is in no small part due to CGL. They wont force you to be clean or do it for you, if you are not motivated to get clean then you likely wont get much out of CGL. But if you are motivated and ready to tackle your addiction, whatever it may be, then CGL can and will help you do it.
