The Recovery Lighthouse was recommended by my cousin, who runs a similar centre in North London. I have found this to be the best experience I could have had and I have had so much support and understanding from all the staff here, including cleaners, support workers, the chef, and counsellors that I would highly recommend Lighthouse to anyone who enquires about recovery to me. If there was a 10 star button, I would put 20! I really do feel this experience has changed my life and I am now ready to work with my sponsor, I have been asked to do a chair and I am so keen to get started. I will definitely consider the programme as my new lifestyle choice, and am aiming to one day help others who have similar problems with addiction as I had. Thank you all so much for basically saving my sanity. Linzi
Wonderful accommodation, wonderful staff, very friendly, very helpful and the group peers were lovely and much nicer than what I was expecting. I can see why there is a high success rate. I extended for two weeks because of my experience.
I was very happy with the overall experience here. I have attended several treatment centres and would consider this unit to be the best I have attended. The staff, support,therapist and management were all most helpful and professional. I feel I have gained more knowledge of my problems and suggestions of how I might address them than any previous centre. There was a good balance of therapy/groups and free time. Highly recommended.
I have done a few treatment centres and this place is the best one I have been to in terms of staff and clients and programme. The whole experience has made me feel part of a family and made me feel that I am important. I feel I can now go out and live my life again with working the Twelve Steps.
This has been the most amazing part of my life and has renewed me in readiness for my further journey towards sobriety. The organisation of the entire household is impeccable from housekeeping, to chef, the support workers and the therapy team. I cannot thank this wonderful group of people for getting me back into the real world in which I had become so lost. I also wish to thank my peers for all the guidance, support and encouragement they gave me along my pathway to healing.
28 days ago, I came in here feeling terrified, with low self-esteem, and without a positive outlook at all. With the help of the staff, the counselling team, and my peer-group, I am leaving a different, happy, and joyful woman! I will be attending all AA meetings I can find in my area, and following the 12 steps, because it works if you work it, because I am worth it!
What an inspiring place, I came in with an alcohol addiction and left with my life, happiness and contentment. The best decision I ever made. Thank you to all, for their caring and compassion on my journey of discovery.
Wow ! A year ago I was killing myself, and through my family and friends I ended up in 'Recovery Lighthouse'. It was hard at first, but all of the staff were wonderful and so supportive, and I saw it through to the end. I was in a mess, and being in the house was the best thing that could have happened to me. I am so grateful to all of the staff for giving me the direction and the benefit of their expertise, which has enabled me to remain dry for one year now. My stay has brought my life back on track with my family and friends. Many, many thanks to all. One day at a time!!
