I have spent almost 8 weeks here at Sanctuary Lodge. I can truly say that the therapy and support here has completely changed my way of thinking and processing my thoughts and emotions on the deepest of levels. My addiction/illness has been killing me slowly for 30 years. The therapy received within groups and from therapist has been the most effective of the 3 other rehabs experienced in my years of fighting. Compassion, respect, kindness and empathy for the addict is expressed throughout as is patience and tolerance. Professional boundaries and a firm structure are provided which is necessary and appropriate to manage our difficult condition. I can not recommend this facility enough. My addictive head has been replaced by a zest for life and a real commitment to continued recovery . Thank you Sanctuary Lodge. You have given me my life back.
You are very important to us. Thank you for the trust you have placed in us. Please call us anytime with any questions or concerns

Sanctuary lodge has been the most successful - by far the best programme I have come across which has helped me to a position I am in this morning leaving Sanctuary Lodge with the tools to enable me to move forward with the Steps Programme and made me understand my addiction. The support staff are second to none and the therapists are well-qualified and professional in their approach to recovery. For anyone who is looking for a rehabilitation centre, I have been to the most expensive treatment centre in the UK and Sanctuary Lodge is far superior in it's approach. Jeff.

After 28 days I now have a life to look forward to. The staff and my peers have saved my life. Words alone will never be enough to express my gratitude.

When I came to sanctuary lodge, I was very ill. I was at rock bottom, my alcoholism and drug addiction was in charge of my life, I was powerless !!! My destructive behaviours we're destroying my marriage and my friendships . With the amazing help from the therapists and support workers, and of course the 12 step program, my clarity slowly came back to me. I started to see a life in front of me, and it becoming manageable again!! I'm in early recovery, but my life is changing. I owe a lot to the program and sanctuary lodge. Many thanks, David

Sanctuary Lodge has been a lifesaver for me. It's been my first experience of rehab so I didn't know what to expect. The 12 step programme has really taught me a lot about myself & the therapists know exactly how to press the right buttons. Support staff are really helpful & friendly. Rooms & food are fine.

Sanctuary Lodge has changed my life. Without the help and the knowledge I have gained I would not be here today. I cannot say thank you enough to those that have helped and supported me and would recommend to anyone that wants to change their life for the better.

I have benefited immensely from my 28 day programme at Sanctuary Lodge. I came here for the daily therapy and the safe environment to deal with my addiction and my emotions. I am so thankful to the therapists and all the support team. The experience of sharing in group, meeting amazing peers, making new friends and having a therapist team who relate and offer care and support has given me hope, the tools I can use in daily life to make changes to focus on my ongoing recovery and a re-built trust to make a fresh start. Thank you everyone at Sanctuary Lodge for your help, guidance and support.
