I went into this place after self destructing on alcohol after my wife left me due to my addiction. I couldn't see any light at the end of the tunnel. I just wanted to die. I had no hope. With the help of my peers, staff and especially my therapist Ian I have smashed down my denial around my addiction and even though I have a lot to do now I am leaving, I have picked up tools that will help on my journey. I can now see some light at the end of the tunnel and so thank you Sanctuary Lodge for your help and thank you for saving my life.

I can't recommend Sanctury Lodge high enough, the staff are extremely helpful, approachable and respectful. The therapists are professional and caring and the programme is on of the best on offer for recovery. Also, I have never had so many real belly laughs during break-times that it is just magical and you leave with friends who are forever and genuine friends.

My stay in Sanctury Lodge was the full 28-day programme. I would highly recommend a minimum stay of 28-days as I found it really valuable and I learnt more than I thought I would about my addiction and how to live a happier life of recovery. I would really like to thank both Jackie and Nick my therapists for all their help and support. All the support staff where also very helpful. The atmosphere in Sanctury all I can say is it is magical and I couldn't recommend this place higher.

7th March 2017 Thank you Sanctuary Lodge, you truly have given me the opportunity to live a full and enjoyable life with my children at the forefront. The care is delivered by the day & night careers and therapist's with passion and skill. When I arrived I had many wobbles in those states Daly days, leaving today I hardly recognise myself. So nice to be Amends again, thank you! X.

Sanctuary lodge is amazing, it's changed my life forever. I was broken on arrival but received top quality care from the support staff. The clients gave me a loving warm welcome which I really needed. The therapists are all dedicated to their jobs, they go out of their way to help and support every patient with their recoveries. Jackie and Nick both sat with me on separate occasions when I didn't think I could cope anymore, their personal experiences and dedication to help me made me see the light. I'm grateful to each and every member of staff here for making my journey the best it could be and giving me the life skills and tools to continue in my recovery! I recommend this rehab to anyone who needs help, you will be well looked after and your life changed forever. Thanks sanctuary lodge!!

My name is Ricci and i'm a grateful recovered Addict. I attended Sanctuary Lodge's - Secondary Care at Fenton House back in March 2016. After attending a 28 day detox at Primrose Lodge. Fenton House gave me the opportunity to experience what sober life could be like. They gave me more independence through-out my stay. It acts as a "Dry House" (so to speak). Living in a very friendly and warm environment, working closely with other addicts & alcoholics 24/7 made me grow from strength to strength in the house. Using the tools and knowledge I learnt in Primary Care. I was able to then practice there principles in everyday life. Helping me build back my self- esteem and gain the confidence in building resilience to relapse. Through understanding my emotions and character defects in more depth, with exceptional and relatable one two one Counselling. That I was truly able to grow in my sobriety. Throughly recommend this programme. I can't thank them enough. Today I am celebrating 1 Year Clean & Sober. Recovery is possible. This programme does work. If you are willing to work it.
