Wow...how do I sum up the Sanctuary Lodge experience in this space? It has been such a roller coaster of emotions gaining insight into myself and my addiction, something I resisted but then succumbed to with the constant and tireless support, wisdom and sensitivity of the care and counselling staff here. It has been right for me and I have learned so much.

I spent 28 days in Sanctuary lodge and it has changed my life. The program gets right to core of what the disease of addiction really is, and well as looking at the individuals underlying issues that may have fuelled the active addiction. It gives a fantastic grounding in the 12 steps and and a host of tools to support your ongoing recovery. The therapist team is outstanding, and I cannot thank Nick (every patient gets allocated their own individual therapist) enough for his imput to help me deal with my personal circumstances outside of my using, but more importantly his unique ability to level with me and adapt the recovery process in way that suited me. I feel the team at lodge have given me a fantastic platform to kick start my recovery and I am extremely optimistic about my chances.

This is a very 'special' place to me! I've just finished my 28 day stay and I thought I was just coming here to come off alcohol. But little did I no how much I would find out about myself,I have learnt so much about this illness of addiction and I'm so amazed by it. You not only get detoxed,you get so much therapy in groups and 1-1's and from peers, it teaches u about yourself,addiction and how to manage life without resulting to using again! The person who walked in here was a broken women who had given up on life is now walking out of here with a clear head held high,lots of understanding and knowledge about my addiction lots of tools in my box a recovery plan and as long as i do what is suggested,I can now start LIVING life again! I owe a lot to this place and its team of therapists and my peers, it will forever b in my heart x
