Wonderful program at Wattlegrove

About: Lyndon Wattlegrove Residential Rehab

To whom it may concern,

I am taking a moment to tell you about my experience with Wattlegrove Rehab. I was at the rehab around 4 months. I came to the program with no more than a bag of clothes and nothing else; no hope for the future. In the 4 months I was at Wattlegrove my quality of life improved by 90%. Not only am I drug-free, but I have learned cooking, cleaning, communication, conflict resolution, and what cravings are and how to avoid relapse. But the most important thing is I got a lot of certificates, like RSA, RSG, etc. that increase my ability to find a job.

A lot of the staff are wonderful, some of them being addiction survivors themselves. I really liked the virtues program because they teach things like love, hope, thankfulness, flexibility, kindness, etc. just to name a few, and explained what they mean and asked people to practice them. Not everyone has had these things in their life and addiction can make you forget. I think the virtues program increased my overall happiness by getting me to see what I have, not what I don't.

I think that the 2 case worders, Adele and Teresa, and the boss Joel, go over and above to accommodate for the individual person's needs. Wattlegrove has been the best choice I have made and will be forever grateful for the program. I owe my life to this program and the staff. My kids have their mother back and I have my life and happiness. Thank you.
