I was treated with respect and talking to other people who have gone through the same experience has helped me greatly.
I came to Runcorn and was treated with respect and I would recommend it to anyone
Difficult couple of weeks, as expected especially over xmas, but well worth it !!!!!.... and great staff !
I have been at oasis Runcorn for the past 3 months for drug addiction. The building is grim /grimy/grubby - definatly needs work doing! The staff however are exceptional. The support workers especially Charlotte have been professional and caring in all aspects of their work -essential at such a distressing time in your life and you don,t know what to expect. The counselling staff are brilliant , they really know their stuff and Darren who was my personal counsellor really helped me to become a recovering addict ! Thank you to everyone at Runcorn including office staff ( Sianna ). The three months were a fantastic life changing experience.
Staff are great. Therapy was also good. The building needs a full refurbishment job. needs painting and new couches and beds. Bed bugs became a big problem in my stay. If these issues are addressed i would recommend to anyone.
