Coming to liberty house was an unforgettable and hopefully life changing experience. From day one I was shown nothing but care and compassion from each and every staff member. I came in knowing I only had one chance turn my life around and I feel that this centre has helped me do just that. My anxieties are not cured but I have learnt to manage them, which is more than I could have ever expected before coming in.
Very impressed with the counsellors here. I feel much better since first arriving. CBT has helped me to think more positively. I had no idea what rehab would be like, its been a wonderful experience for me. I am over the moon with how much I have learned and how much better i feel now. Many thanks to all Staff and Counsellors here.
Have listened, learned, participated fully in all programmes/groups and found the whole experience very healing. Most importantly I confirmed my greater purpose which is to use the the tools acquired during my stay at Liberty Hose to work towards sustaining my sobriety and long term recovery from the illness of alcohol addiction.
I was made to feel welcome here from the moment I arrived. All of the Therapists are impeccable and have made this journey amazing for me. The staff are also incredible and very helpful. I have made some lifelong friends here and won't ever forget the amazing memories here. Thank you to all at Liberty House.
since coming to liberty house i now feel like i have found myself again thanks to all the staff and peers i have met in my journey
