What an I say....this experience has changed my life! I cannot fault any of the staff. Massive shout out to Jack and Dave, the most important men here as they fed and watered me 🙂 Gilly was a dream to work with and really helped towards my recovery. Thank you to Jules, Kate and Edwina. Such different therapeutic styles that compliment each other. I cannot thank you enough. Support staff are just that. So supportive and caring. I found Tim, Kim and Carol very inspiring with their stories and always there for advice and a giggle. Lauren is so knowledgeable about addition and is amazing! Karen, Wendy and Jenny I did not see very often but we’re always lovely. Johnny has been great and involved. Also very inspirations. What a great team!
My treatment at Primrose has been has been excellent. The food is superb and the chefs are very accommodating. The support staff and therapists are always available for you and I can highly recommend this to anyone finding themselves needing help.
I came to Primrose in a poor state, didn’t know what to expect. For me it’s been a revelation in terms of learning not only about my illness but also about myself. Couldn’t recommend highly enough. Thanks to all at Primrose.
Very fortunate to have found my way to Primrose. I was a complete mess, quite possibly would have drunk myself to death had I not gone to a treatment center. Primrose has been been emotional, some tough love (just the right amount) and very interesting. From being a full blown alcoholic, I haven’t really thought about drinking at all during my stay. The days are full, and can be intense at times. The integration to the 12 step programme has been challenging, and made accessible for me, as I am not a religious person. Highly recommend.
I have spent 28 days at Primrose Lodge (and 7 days at Banbury shielding). I have had a life changing experience whilst here and found the whole experience to be very rewarding. All the therapists, support workers , cleaners and chefs have been very friendly, caring, polite, professional and approachable. They have all treated me with respect. The treatment has been above and beyond what I was expecting and has given me a very good foundation for the start of my recovery journey. I have learnt so much in a very short period of time and have been given the tools required to give me every chance of having a successful recovery journey.I have found my higher power, have been open and honest to myself and with my peers and the staff, and I have accepted that I’m an alcoholic. I have tried to embrace everything asked of me and completed my steps 1 x 4 during my stay which I have found very rewarding. The food has been excellent and the accommodation very comfortable. Thank you to everyone, it has been an amazing journey so far and I would recommend Primrose Lodge to anyone needing help with their addictions.
