I have had the most incredible experience here at Sanctuary Lodge. It feels like I've been given a second chance in life; like a miracle has happened! Never knew there were other people like me with the same illness! The staff are very polite and helpful, nothing is ever too much trouble for them and the food and chefs are amazing. It made me feel like you're not alone. Therapy is second to none and has helped me so so much! Thank you to Taner and all of the staff, especially my therapist Becky and to all of the night staff who kept me feeling safe in their care.

I was very nervous before coming in Sanctuary Lodge, however everyone has been extremely friendly and kind. My life was being ruled by alcohol with the brilliant therapists and engaging program at Sanctuary Lodge I have gained the tools to live a alcohol free life. Thanks to all the staff.

Sanctuary Lodge, the therapists and all the other troubled souls in here have saved and turned my life around. I had no self worth and i was killing myself with drugs and alcohol. I'd crashed and burned and hit rock bottom with my cocaine habit also by relationship with both my family and girlfriend was on a knife edge.. literally last chance saloon but now i see life through these new eyes.. i'm off on a new journey with the people i love and who love me!

Overall my stay at Sanctuary Lodge and the secondary stage Fenton was one of the best things I’ve done and completely life changing. All staff were excellent, very caring, approachable and understanding but my special thanks must go to my ‘named therapist’ Anita who went above and beyond to help me. Thank you all so much

It was really scary coming in, I had no hope and was terrified. As soon as I came in peers and staff were really friendly. I am now leaving having had my life saved and feel like life is worth living, my self worth has increased and I enjoy being happy, something I thought wasn’t possible. Thanks to everyone for helping me. My one to one with my focal therapist Jenna have helped me gain self worth and the therapy team have help me grow. There is always someone to talk to and the support workers here. It’s nice to be cared about.

I was a nervous wreck before I came here to Sanctuary Lodge but a few days in it felt like home, the staff especially my therapist Ian and Anita have been absolutely brilliant, and the chefs tony and Kat have served the most amazing food, I will definitely miss Tony's homemade cake on a Friday, and the cleaners sue and Bec kept my room so clean... if not for sanctuary Lodge I don't think I would be alive today so a massive thank you to the staff for all their support and encouragement xx

I put up I huge fight with my family not to come here and in the end I was dragged here kicking and screaming. Once here I found all Insanity just stopped. I had finally found my peace of mind. After 28 days here my life has turned around dramatically for the better. Now I don't want to leave and they might just have to drag me out!

Sanctuary Lodge did for me what I couldn't do for myself. It has been a life changing experience and the people I met along the way (both peers and therapists) have given me a new perspective on life.
