I arrived on 9th April 2018, having initially booked in for 3 weeks but ended up staying for a third week. I would recommend at least 3 weeks if you can't do 4 (4 was just not possible for me due to family commitments which could not be changed. When I first arrived I was struck by how much people seemed to be enjoying themselves, it was not really what I expected, never having been to a recovery clinic previously. Obviously there were times when things got a little more stressful, understandable given the reasons we were all there for. The classroom sessions were thought provoking to say the least, but they need to be when faced with the issues that we were dealing with. All the therapists were extremely professional and discreet when they they needed to be. The support staff were tremendous, always friendly and courteous, but when required allied to just the right amount of discipline. The rooms are comfortable, and although the main chef was unwell for much of my stay, the support staff and outside agencies coped with the demand. On the whole the food was excellent, and no-one ever went hungry. If you are looking for a place to get issues sorted, then this is for you. The AA, CA and NA meetings were on the whole fantastic, and I never left a meeting not having something to ponder. Just two extra tips - do not drive your own car, parking is a nightmare and restricted on the street around the clinic, and if you smoke, bring enough cigarettes (and more) to last you a full week and more, as there are plenty of natural breaks between sessions. All in all a very positive experience.
Therapy amazing, peer feedback life changing, staffing shortages especially the chef very poor but when chef in food wonderful
HI Alice, Thanks for your review we had some staff sickness while you stayed with us and this has been rectified now and we have put a plan of action in should this happen again. We hope to see you at aftercare.
Pros - Tidy house, staff were generally respectful, therapists were very organised and diligent. Nice food ( when the chef is in). Very helpful with me finding secondary care. Cons - Communication break down from management to support workers and a lack of authority when faced with difficult situations from fellow peers. Your designated therapist is not with you to see your progress (Thought this would be a given)
Hi Luke, thanks for your review, we are sorry we had some staff sickness while you were in Recovery Lighthouse, we do admit weÂ were a little caughtÂ out with multiple staff sickness at the same time. We have put processes in place to make sure this does not happen again. Therapist always triesÂ to stay with one client but sometimes dues to sickness events are out of our control. We hope to see you back in aftercare.
Excellent treatment Centre, the staff are very helpful and supportive

The Lighthouse Recovery centre saved my life, of that there is no doubt in my mind. I walked through the door having hit my rock bottom, I leave with my head held high. I genuinely believe this program saved my life and I will be eternally grateful to every member of the team. It is testament to their kindness and unwavering support that I leave here a STRONG, HAPPY, CONFIDENT WOMAN!!!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE AT THE LIGHTHOUSE FOR YOUR CONSTANT SUPPORT, ADVICE, KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.
