I came in here a broken, weak man, the first few days I really struggled, I wanted to leave, the therapy team are brilliant, they sat me down and spoke to me and I woke up the next day feeling positive and that I could do it. My one to one therapist was Jenna and she really helped me throughout my 28 days here, delved really into what caused my problem. I faced a few problems throughout staying here. Nick who's a therapist really gave me a lot of time and really understood me. I'll be forever thankful. I've learnt an awful lot as to why I used. The whole therapist team really go To the reason I use. I walk out of here a strong man, the happiest I've ever felt. And it's all down to the therapist team. The support staff here are also amazing, Vicky has been there for me through everything, always gave me time and listened. I thank you all so much. 5***

Sanctuary has saved my life and given me a future to look forward to. The therapists, support staff and everyone else who works here have been amazing. I felt safe, looked after and supported throughout my stay. The tools I have been given to continue my recovery will help so much, I could not have done this alone.

This is my second time stay at Sanctuary Lodge for a 28 day rehab which has give me a great foundation for my recovery. I have had great treatment from the therapasists especially Ian And Nick who remembered me from my first 10 day stay. Most importantly my peers have given me great advice and feedback which is vital in recovery.

Recovery from active addiction is a slow and sometimes painful process. I thought it would never happen for me but since spending time at Sanctuary I have a newfound hope for a better and brighter future. Thank you to all the staff and my fellow group peers and particularly my focal counsellor Nick for all their support and encouragement. I simply could not have found a way out of the darkness on my own. X
