A note from one of our Nurses:
Hi, I’m Sarah, a Nurse you would be working alongside. Fighting stigma and being the voice for patients who can sometimes be overlooked, feels empowering. I get to witness and help individuals going through some of their darkest days and then moving into recovery, finding purpose and enjoyment in life again. This, for me, is the most fulfilling aspect of my role. It can be challenging at times, but l am given the opportunity to develop my skills, and work alongside many different professionals. I find Nursing within the addiction field to be very rewarding.
