Mark visits ADS(December 03, 2012)
Mark recently visited the ADS detox service in Preston. The facility can house up to ten people who require intensive treatment for alcohol dependency. Preston has the 5th highest alcohol misuses hospital admissions in the country.
Mark toured the facilities and spoke to the Chief Executive, staff and patients whilst there.
Mark said: "The work that ADS does is invaluable not only dealing with the effects of alcohol but also in the work they do rehabilitating people. Alcohol abuse has hidden victims as it can tear apart friendships and families as well as livelihoods. The statistics for Preston are quite worrying and I will be making sure to keep a close eye on the situation."
