I can’t speak highly enough of my time spent in Sanctuary Lodge. The facilities, therapists and activities were all fantastic and I now feel I am on the right path to get both me and my life back. I can thank them enough. It’s not an easy journey but, the rewards are priceless.

I have learnt new coping skills to help me manage my life and stay clean. The Sanctuary have been very supportive and educational. They have made me feel very comfortable with the process of facing sobriety. I now see my future positively.

My stay at Sanctuary Lodge has given me real hope as well as the tools to stay sober. The counsellors are fantastic as well as the food but what really made it for me was the experiences I shared and heard from the other people here. If you really are serious about staying sober I would highly recommend Sanctuary Lodge.

I do strongly recommend this service to anyone who is suffering with any form of addiction as the program really gave me the opportunity to realise the root of some of my problems as well as providing a set of tools with which to continue to stay clean and sober, I had no idea that I was going to enjoy it as much as I did and I will forever be grateful to every member of staff and more importantly my peers for helping me with my recovery.

Sanctuary Lodge has saved my life. My doctor has told me that I would die within six months if I didn’t stop drinking and treatment here has provided the answer.

My life has been returned to me during my rehabilitation at Sanctuary Lodge and Fenton House. No aspect of my care felt overlooked or incidental. The care and support offered throughout my stay has made me feel valued not just as a client but as someone worth getting better. I will be forever grateful to the place and the people within it.

The care and support I have received at Sanctuary Lodge has been second to none. I have been made to feel welcome and listened to. I came in broken and alone and have been able to build myself back up with the support of the therapists and peers, backed up by a genuine concern for my recovery at a difficult time in my life. I cannot stress how important this first stage of my recovery has been for me. Ian has been a key part of my journey here and has provided incredibly valuable support and tools in order for me to continue my abstinence which I am eternally grateful for. The support staff have also been very patient and caring throughout.

Great staff. Ordinary bedrooms. Psychiatrist completely inflexible.
Dear Dave Thank you for your review. Our doctors and psychiatrists are all specialists in the field of addiction and follow NICE guidelines. Any prescribing by the psychiatrist would always be done with your goals in mind and your safety as the priority. The detox is always discussed between the psychiatrist and client, and agreed upon before it commences. Best Wishes Sanctuary Lodge
