By checking into Sanctuary Lodge you will find a place where you can reflect and detox from whatever your addiction maybe.

Being here for the week of my detox has made all the difference to my future health. They save lives here. I think BUPA should open this treatment up as a standard benefit. This would save BUPA a fortune on paying out on alcohol and drug abuse relate physical conditions that would be treated at the source.

I came into Sanctuary Lodge a broken man. I was suffering from depression and did not want to stop using in anyway, I couldnt see the damage I was doing to myself which was so bad my heart stopped the previous night. I am leaving the happiest I can ever remember and clean and sober for the first time in 23 years. The past 28 days have been the best in my life, the therapists and staff are beyond amazing and have truly saved my life. I would recommend Sanctuary Lodge to anyone who needs the help, I never thought a place like this could help, how wrong I was.

My feelings are that Im very pleased that I achieved what I came in for and his has given me the foundation to move forward with my life. The staff have lived up to my expectation, When I met Angie my therapists I thought we would be arguing and I had not even landed. Then I felt as if I walked out of a room achieving with a therapist what I havent achieved before. I checked out all the therapists before I came! The step one, two and three have made a big difference and all the group work. Im very happy.

From a point of hopelessness and spiral of despair, Sanctuary Lodge has enabled me to re-start my new life, a clean life, a wonderful life. I never knew when I walked through the door that I would come out a new me, full of hope and faith in not only myself as a person, but for all of my tomorrows also. I will be eternally grateful,

I was frightened to come in Sanctuary Lodge at first and wanted to run! When I started to get into the program I realised quickly that this place can help you work magic...if you want recovery. The staff started me off and showed me the path to follow and now its up to me. At first the groups were irritating and yet I soon realised that I could get so much out of the groups therapy. This illness has been consuming me for a long while and now with doing four weeks in here, its allowed me to see the person as used to be. My head was so clouded I couldnt see through the mist. Now Im talking responsibility for myself. I cant thank Angie and all the therapists and staff enough., its all been great and the food has been tops!
