I came into sanctuary lodge a broken teenager, but I'm leaving the man I was meant to become a long time ago. This place is fantastic, the therapist team are amazing the support staff are equally amazing. I love the way they make you come out with the answers to your own questions. I came in not knowing anything about the disease of addiction, I didn't even know it was an illness. The tools they gave me are priceless, and I feel like I'm ready to face the world instead of hiding from it, One day at a time. Thank you sanctuary lodge, you have given me the start of my new life.

I have found it very satisfying. The support i got of off staff was very very good. When i first came in i was just sat in my room staring at my feet the staff helped me get over this. All in all the treatment that i have had has been excellent.

This was the best thing I've ever done in my life by coming to the Sanctuary. The first few days were very difficult for me to trust anyone and I told my group that I wanted to leave. When they all said they wanted me to stay I felt like maybe I could give this clinic a chance. I'm so happy that I decided to stay. They have helped me find and accept my feeling and how to handle them. I haven't felt good about myself in a long time and the therapists here showed me a way to find myself again. I have my confidence back and I'm looking forward to working my steps to have a better life, a sober life. Thank you Sanctuary Lodge

I feel there are brilliant therapists here all of them have helped me understand addiction as well as my underlying issues from my childhood, demons if you like ! namely genna , nick, Ian, Jackie , Anita and they all really know what they are talking about . The support stuff are all brilliant !!!, they really make you feel at home . Every client here has really helped me with their sharing and feed back and it feels as though I have inherited a second family! They are all here to support you .nothing more powerful than one addict helping another . The facilities are good but could do with a little refurbishment but it is what it is ! God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference ! Peace & love ! Believe / Achieve !

Before arriving at Sunctuary Lodge my life was non-existent, I had lost all sense of hope and didn't know who I was anymore. I have spent 8 weeks in treatment and can honestly say coming here was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I have had such brilliant support and help from the counsellors (in particular my focal therapist Nick), support staff and peers I am leaving a different person. I have learnt so much about myself and feel I now have the tools to live a happy, forfilled life. I would definitely recommend Sanctuary Lodge.
