"Alcohol addiction and recovery (Logan House)"

About: Lives Lived Well - Logan House

(as the patient),

I was admitted to Logan house on a six-week residential rehabilitation program (CBT-based) in which I have gained a generous amount of knowledge around my addiction to alcohol.

I found the program a real eye-opener around how the brain functions and works.  I have previously been in 12-step rehabilitation programs but find that I found this CBT-based program seemed a lot more functional in regards to my needs as a recovering addict.

After completing the program there is a substantial amount of ongoing care and support provided around meeting my needs going forward in the future, including housing, one-on-one counselling with staff and a day program if required.

While staying at Logan House I had one-on-one appointments with Kylie. She was great in going through the main issues I had around my behaviours and thought patterns around my addictions, she was very helpful and understanding in what I, as an individual, was going through.

Hello nuthatchwp76,

Thank you for your post about attending Lives Lived Well's Rehabilitation Program at Logan House. It is great to hear the six week program with its cognitive behavioural therapy base was so beneficial for you.

Having knowledge about what is happening in your brain and body and the impacts that alcohol can have are all relevant pieces of information to guide your recovery. The ongoing care and support as you transition out of the rehabilitation program are also key features so that each step is not so daunting. I am glad you found this helpful and supportive.

Thank you for recognising the contribution of Kylie and other staff. I will pass on your message to them at Logan House.

I wish you all the best for your future.

Warm regards

Gerard
