4 weeks ago I was ready to end my life and thanks to family intervention they found banbury lodge. They managed to get me in next day and started my isolation which helped sober me up. Then straight into an amazing routine of the 12 steps and CBT. I've had personal issues whikst in treatment which the staff have helped me work through. I was introduced to my therapist Rebecca which helped change my life. Every single member of staff has also had a massive part in my sobriety and start to my journey of a better life. Especially Sarah, Bernie, Lianne, Tom, Zoe and Charlotte, Sandy.
The therapy has been excellent and generally support staff have been very good.
Overall I found the whole experience brilliant, from the welcome I got through to now. Everyone has been lovely.
Well presented, excellent cilnically, comfortable and well organised.
