I came to Primrose in a poor state, didnt know what to expect. For me its been a revelation in terms of learning not only about my illness but also about myself. Couldnt recommend highly enough. Thanks to all at Primrose.
Very fortunate to have found my way to Primrose. I was a complete mess, quite possibly would have drunk myself to death had I not gone to a treatment center. Primrose has been been emotional, some tough love (just the right amount) and very interesting. From being a full blown alcoholic, I havent really thought about drinking at all during my stay. The days are full, and can be intense at times. The integration to the 12 step programme has been challenging, and made accessible for me, as I am not a religious person. Highly recommend.
I have spent 28 days at Primrose Lodge (and 7 days at Banbury shielding). I have had a life changing experience whilst here and found the whole experience to be very rewarding. All the therapists, support workers , cleaners and chefs have been very friendly, caring, polite, professional and approachable. They have all treated me with respect. The treatment has been above and beyond what I was expecting and has given me a very good foundation for the start of my recovery journey. I have learnt so much in a very short period of time and have been given the tools required to give me every chance of having a successful recovery journey.I have found my higher power, have been open and honest to myself and with my peers and the staff, and I have accepted that Im an alcoholic. I have tried to embrace everything asked of me and completed my steps 1 x 4 during my stay which I have found very rewarding. The food has been excellent and the accommodation very comfortable. Thank you to everyone, it has been an amazing journey so far and I would recommend Primrose Lodge to anyone needing help with their addictions.
I came into Primrose Lodge with my tail between my legs, full of depression, anxiety and and huge cocaine addiction. I thought I was unfixable. I engaged with the program, didnt hold nothing back and spoke about every feeling and emotions I had going on because I just wanted to be better. I was fed up of feeling the way I did. I thought that maybe my addiction could be solved but not my mental health. But hell to that I feel like a changed man. My advice is to get with the program, hold nothing back and speak about EVERYTHING, if you dont get involved you wont gain as much from the program. This has been the best experience of my life and without primrose lodge and all its fantastic staff I would have ended up dead. I know Im not at the finish line but they have provided me with all the tools I need for recovery and most of all LIFE, a happy one. I recommend this place to anyone who is willing to turn there life around because for the first time in my life Ive felt like Ive made progress! Massive thank you to all the staff and I cant wait to speak about my progress on the outside! Love you all ??
Wow, my time in Primrose has been one of the most best experiences I have ever done. I hit rock bottom and chose to come to Rehab, and was one of the best decisions I ever made. There was a few rehabs I could have chosen, however Primrose Lodge seemed my number one out of all others. My 28 days have honestly been life changing, mentally and spiritually. I feel reborn, I feel a brand new sense of life once again. I have taken back my power and now have a purpose. Each and every member of staff couldnt have been more understanding. Each and everyday they took the time and care to the best of their ability to make sure myself and my peers are safe and happy. I would one thousand percent recommenced Primrose Lodge to anybody out in the world that has lost their sense of self due to addiction. If your thinking, dont hesitate. Pick up the phone and save yourself and your life and claim back your sanity x
My time at primrose lodge has given me many tools for making the most of life as well as how to deal with any obstacles it may bring my way. After four weeks of group therapy with likeminded peers and a number of helpful one to ones with my therapist I am feeling a renewed sense of clarity hope trust and faith in my self and my recovery. I am very thankful for this opportunity and recommend highly!
My experience of Primrose has been a hugely positive one. The staff are friendly, professional and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is way above standard of what I expected and out chef jack was very accommodating of any food preferences, medication was prescribed and dispensed correctly and on time and my detox was very smooth. My 1:1 therapist, Gilly, was exceptional along with many other members of the therapy and support team notably Carole, Karen, Tim, Lauren, Cynthia, Tim and Jenny it a.l the staff were professional and extremely kind. The group therapy sessions were very well run and facilitated, the accommodation is clean, comfortable and well decorated. I cannot recommend this Lodge any higher as I have been to a coup.e before.
This establishment has given me tools to beat my addiction but more than this they have given me hope and happiness. The staff are professional and caring and I would recommend this facility to anybody suffering from the disease of addiction.
I am so glad that I chose Primrose Lodge as my place for recovery. I had never believed I would leave this place without the slightest urge of never drinking again. Instead, thanks to the Amazing staff and Therapy I received I am leaving as the person I knew I was before my addiction made my life unmanageable. I now have all of the tools necessary that providing I keep using them a happy life of sobriety lies ahead. The accommodation was really nice and it is a nice intimate Rehab centre without too many people staying at any one time. This made it very easy to get to know all of my peers and friendships were built very quickly with everyone. Its like a big happy family all looking out for each other. Im actually sad to be leaving, I couldnt recommend it enough!
I will forever be in debt to Primrose Lodge. I arrived broken by alcohol and cocaine addiction and I had hit rock bottom. Over the weeks and after many group and 1 to 1 therapy sessions I began to get my life back. I now realise that my addiction is a disease and following the 12 step programme I can live a clean and sober life. I accept I will be in recovery for life but I have gained the tools on how to deal with living a clean and sober life. If it was not for Primrose Lodge I will still be in that very dark place.
