Its a really warm and welcoming place. I was really scared when i walked in the door but i quickly settled in and made lots of friends. I was willing and pushed myself to engage with peers. The programme is well covered and explained to a good standard. All the therapists are great but especially my therapist Jenna she was really supportive. Im sad to be leaving but ready to start the next chapter of my life.

The therapist and support I got was brilliant as it was the second time being here. I feel like I have gain so many tools that I did not have the first time I came into treatment, I feel I have gain so much self worth and I can sit with all my emotions instead of lashing out, I can manage my addiction and start my recovery outside,reborn.

The best money i have ever spent because i wouldnt be alive if it wasnt for this place. The staff have been supportive and i appreciate my therapist Jenna for being there for me and being patient. I have enjoyed being here and feeling calmer and more motivated to start living my life again.

Very much enjoyed my time at Santurary Lodge. Would certainly recommend it as a treatment centre.

I truely believe that Sanctuary Lodge saved my life and helped me to understand my addiction to alcohol and gave me hope that I could get better and start a new life in recovery. I have never felt so healthy, happy and hopeful. The care and attention you receive as soon as you walk through the door is phenomenal. I have never once felt scared or alone in my recovery journey here. The intensity of the treatment program is what helped to to understand my disease of alcolism and I feel ready to return home, armed with knowledge and tools to help me in every day life. The therapists are extremely knowledgable (most are in recovery), and are always on hand to guide and coach you in the right direction. There is no judgement whatsoever, something I was at first afraid of. I can’t recommend Sanctuary Lodge highly enough. Katie Welland

Staff professional, respectful and helpful, food is excellent. Contact with in-house doctor needs improvement.

I stayed at Sanctuary lodge for 4 weeks and i learned a lot about addiction and about my self the programme it’s self definitely works if you work it and commit 100% if you do this your life will be amazing would be nice to use the gym a bit more than three times a week buts that’s no big issue the food at Sanctuary Lodge is great big breakfast on Saturday mornings was key for me Liz the chef cooks a mean fry up and roast dinner on sundays is a hit too. When I came to Sanctuary Lodge I was homeless and I’m now living in a 2 bedroom flat complete the programme and things will be so good for anyone coming in I thank the staff for there help management could look at the price off the lodge better some people want help but can’t afford it the big bosses but make some nice money would be great if there was a cheaper option to help me get set free from addiction. After I spent 4 weeks in sanctuary I moved to Fenton house secondary accommodation and was living in a shared house that really helped me progress back into society the house was lovely and we cooked are own food got are phones bk for evening times I would highly recommend it.
