Primrose Lodge Team
At Primrose Lodge, we believe the success of our treatment programmes is intrinsically tied to our staff. Therefore, we have invested quite a bit in recruiting and retaining some of the best professionals in the business. From therapists and counsellors to support staff, the Primrose Lodge team has the knowledge and experience to effectively treat each and every client. What’s more, many of our staff have undergone recovery of their own, giving them a unique perspective that enables them to understand what each of our clients is going through.
Patients successfully completing treatment programmes at Primrose Lodge are quick to give us positive feedback. This feedback lets us know we are succeeding in our mission to help addicts and their families fully recover. If you are looking for recovery for yourself or a loved one, we believe our professional staff and commitment to patients makes Primrose Lodge one of the best places for recovery.
Allow us to introduce a few key members of our staff:
Johnny’s a university graduate from the Organisation and Management course at the Institut National of Commerce, Algiers University and has a First Class Honours Degree in Mathematics (BSC in Mathematics from the London Metropolitan University) which he achieved whilst in recovery. His NVQ 3 and his NVQ 5 (QCF Management in Adult Social Care) are from City and Guilds.
His work experience includes years in the Catering and Hospitality field, leadership positions in the Landscaping and Gardening field, as well as volunteer positions in Homeless Action in Barnet. His journey changed because Johnny suffered from addiction. He’s been sober for over 12 years and is now working to help those who are just starting their journey discover the right path to long-term recovery.
