My stay at banbury lodge was amazing , from every member of staff to all the therapists, nothing was ever to much trouble to accommodate me and the therapy was outstanding to, I'm very grateful to everyone there Thank you J
Therapy was excellent, all the staff were extremely friendly and the ccommodation was comfortable.
During my treatment I have faced emotions that I had been suppressing for years through my addiction. I had somedays where I didn't want to get out of bed and almost returned to my self harming days but with constant support of therapists and support workers along with my peers I have been given useful and healthy tools to deal with my darkest moments. Banbury Lodge has given me definite hope for my life time of recovery.
I feel I benefitted from the programme. If circumstances were different I would've stayed longer. I feel well physically and mentally.
Very welcoming and comfortable environment, the staff were amazing and so was the acomodation. I am so glad I came.
