"Wow, a great relief to release'"

A review of The Bridge by Dean Armstrong written on Thursday 4th of December 2008


I have to share my excitement with anyone who has a Drug or Alcohol related problem. I have been visiting the 'Bridge' for no more than 5 times, and I have found the staff that I have encountered to be 'patient' 'understanding' and what is more 'very easy going' . I like these qualities, they have helped me - without any force - to take a good look at myself.

I hadn't drunk for an entire month when that magic moment happened for me. Now I have to point out, that at no point at any of my visits, was I ever 'told' or 'given 'advice' or 'instructed' about the best way for me to recover. One analogy I can give - and not my best, forgive me - would be like they opened up the doors to a 'strange' 'weird' wonderful' 'beautiful' and a bit 'scary!' art gallery. It was up to me, what paintings I wanted to look at, where I went, and when it was time for me to leave.

Yes, I didn't like all the painting, some I hated, others made me cry and some, well, I just wanted to look at them forever... but, the thing is - or was - that I was free to do what I - yes 'I' - wanted. Free'!!! The handcuffs had been removed, the world - my world - is now mine, Yikes' that is scary too but who wants to live in a cage?

This is my statement, and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks 'Bridge'
