Thank you to all the staff for the help they have given me to start off my recovery. Having my drum kit in my room was a big plus and access to the gym helped my mood greatly

The Sanctuary Lodge has helped me immensely and I’m a completely better person now compared to the shadow of myself that arrived on my first day. I can now live my life as a normal member of society. The programme works if you work it.

I have really enjoyed being here and the way it is an approach to a person as a whole and not just the addiction. It wasn't just an AA meeting there was lots of support throughout the day. I would say if your thinking of come here, to come because it is not just about not taking a drug but the reasons as to why you do it they they help address and give you tools for.

I have learnt to look at things in different ways. I have gained confidence learning to be in group environments. I came in with an open mind and would encourage anyone to stick with it and give it a chance.

I would tell someone to come here because it is clean and their is a relaxed atmosphere. I have been to other treatment centers but this has always been the best one for me.

My treatment was really good and was tailored to me, and I felt everyone was being treated as an individual. I feel it has given me a good foundation to continue when I leave. I walked in very nervous and full of anxiety, and though I am leaving with some anxiety I do not see it as a bad thing now. I really appreciated my support from Jenna and felt like she understood me.

Sanctuary has a good community feel to it and the seminars from therapists are helpful.

Fabulous place and fantastic people, a real family atmosphere. More meetings than I expected but I’m pleased there were and had no idea what rehab would be like. It’s not the Ritz but it does what it says on the tin. I wanted to extend in fact but space was limited. Good soIid program for the 12 steps

I came into sanctuary lodge with no real idea of what to expect as this was my first rehab experience. I was shown around and introduced to my peer members who were very welcoming and warm which relaxed me almost immediately. Not being someone to share my thoughts or feelings I was apprehensive of my first group meeting but my peers shared their stories and feelings quite openly without any judgement from peers and with complete support from the therapists. This gave me the courage to, as they say ‘Trust, Risk and Share which gave me a very freeing feeling. I can honestly say that with the support of my peers and therapists the journey here has given me every reason to believe I leave here with the determination to be the best I can be with the help of meetings and using the tools I have been given. I can’t thank everyone enough for this amazing experience
