St John of Gods Hospital, Stillorgan

    Firstly, thank you for reading my post.

    I took an overdose last week and was admitted to Beaumont Hospital (5 days inpatient). I was discharged two days ago. I had taken alcohol and a huge cocktail of medicine. I need help as a result of depression and work related stress.

    I have a bed available fortunately at St Patrick's hospital. However, I have very very bad memories of that hospital having visited my late mum in a lock down ward. My mum and dad were both in st John of God's hospital in stillorgan for alcohol many many years ago and felt it was a more warming environment. I have to phone st John of gods on Monday to see if they will accept my referral. I have come off my antidepressants and not a sip of alcohol has passed my lips as i want to go to hospital with a clear head.

    Does anyone have any experience of these hospitals? Not only do I need help for my mental health bit I want to get fit again (Covid gut). Are there gym facilities? Are the bedrooms modern? Food healthy?

    I am very anxious about taking this step to recovery so any advice is greatly appreciated.
