i had a great experience at lliberty house,the staff where very helpful, i would highly rec amend it
I wasn't sure what to expect coming in to Liberty House. I came in with severe depression, anxiety and substance abuse. Being here with the amazing staff, counsellors and peers, I felt safe. I learnt that I can stay sober, that it's OK to express feelings that I have been supressing for so long. I was able to understand addiction, learn the tools to help me with my recovery and understand how to manage my anxiety and control my negative thoughts. Mindfulness techniques, yoga, breathing exercises and the 12 step programme saved my life. I felt safe and respected throughout my time here, and had the support of my peers and staff. Costas, Steve, Tony, Gosha, Lenny and our chef Carlos have been amazing. I will be forever grateful.
