I have just completed my 28 days of rehab here at Sanctuary Lodge. I entered this building a complete wreck. My life had little or no purpose, I lost interest in everything except drinking. Sanctuary Lodge with its skilled therapists and comprehensive rehab programme enabled me to have an opportunity to explore myself and where I had gone. It helped me reshape my thinking and am now looking forward to going home, have regained my zest for life and to take my place in society and be a willing partner in this wonderful world. I cannot thank you enough and will always remember this life changing experience. Brian Haigh

Sanctuary Lodge is the best rehab I've ever been to. The food is amazing, the rooms are roomy and really clean, the support staff are fantastic and are always there for you. The therapy groups are amazing and the therapy staff really know what they are doing. I have made so many good friends here and the aftercare meetings are great. This is the best place to recover.

I'm happy I came back because it has given me a greater understanding of where I went wrong, and to deal with issues I didn't fully deal with before. Fantastic care and therapists are supportive, and the food was lovely. Thankful for my one to one session with my therapist Jenna and the peers are all welcoming and supportive.

Before I came to Sanctuary Lodge my life was at the lowest point. After being here your learnt about being an addict, what caused it, I have grown up and this wouldn't have been possible without my therapist Jenna. I have learnt about me in here through support and guidance in one to one session with my therapist Jenna and in groups I have learnt how to deal with my emotions and ways to process and deal with my addiction. I am going out a stronger, more confident and humble person due to an inner peace i have discovered in myself. I can't thank my therapist enough and the rest of the therapist team who have been good and understanding. Kat and tony the food is brilliant and support staff for being there. I am very grateful to Sanctuary Lodge and will never be able to fully express what it has done for me but it has changed my life and I am looking forward to the future and being clean.

I just want to say A Big Thank You to everyone at Sanctuary Lodge for all the kindness, care and support given to me while I was there. First of all, I would like to mention my Therapist, Jackie â you have helped me every step of the way and without your support and guidance, I would not have been able to get through each day, which was the most difficult time of my life. Thank You, Jackie for all that you have done for me and I really appreciate your hard work. I would also like to thank the other Therapists for all their help and support given to me. Nick, Jenna, Patrick, Anita, Scott and Ian I must now thank the two Chefs, Kat and Tony for the delicious food that I really enjoyed during my stay. I must say that I am going to miss the food. Kat, thanks for giving me the recipe for the Coronation Chicken. When I prepare it, I will be thinking of you. I wish to thank Housekeeping for their work as well. I now like to thank John, Rack, Paula, Emma, Vicky, Neil, Kay and the others as I canât remember some of the names. Everyone at Sanctuary Lodge has made me feel so welcome and I felt that this was my second home. I am going to miss all of you. THANK YOU ONCE AGAIN! I will be seeing youâll on Friday for the Aftercare sessions.
