I can not recommend Sanctuary Lodge highly enough. Every member of staff takes the time and care to make your recovery as smooth as possible. They are all very kind and considerate. Kat booked me in and she was especially considerate considering the circumstances. All the Therapist’s are amazing. Tracey runs an excellent team. Mel was my Therapist and she was unbelievable. She understood my issues and really helped identify my problems. She presented practical solutions with love and care. She was straight talking and pulled no punches which is exactly what I needed. Thank you to everyone at Sanctuary Lodge. You are life savers. Wayne
I only had a 2 week stay at Sanctuary Lodge but it has been a completely life changing experience. I don’t think that I would have been able to start recovering from my addiction with out them. The environment, staff and support you receive here is impeccable and I could not recommend it more. It has been the catalyst I needed to start my life again and I owe my new found sense of confidence to this fantastic place.
Treatment was brilliant from start to finish. I would recommended Sanctury lodge to anyone. Therapist are amazing especially Tracy & Mel & support staff are lively & approachable.
I am going home ready. I am going home in a far better place than when I arrived. Staff and peers have commented on this. I felt I have benefited from fully immersing myself into the programme and thank you all for your support.
I arrived at Sanctuary Lodge with a heavy binging alcohol problem that was detrimental to my relationship with my wife and son. (CoVid so barely saw anyone else). I had counselling prior but that was nothing compared to the support from the staff and team here. I leave in a far better place and am ready for my next step. You are in a comfortable environment with great food and very caring staff that will look after you but also keep you on track. I needed that and it worked. I ain’t coming back but would advise anyone to take this route if they are in need of help. Do; and grab it with both hands and dive in. You will not regret it.
