At The Elphis, the support of your fellow clients is essential to your recovery. We are proud of our encouraging and tolerant atmosphere, which emphasises the power of community. Don’t just take our word for it – some of our alumni have discussed the positive impact of undertaking our secondary care addiction treatment programme.
Hear more about the experiences of former clients below.
Will undertook secondary care treatment at The Elphis after spending 30 years struggling with addiction. Due to being traumatised in his childhood, which had a huge impact on his self-esteem, he spent a lot of time in and out of primary care. He says The Elphis changed his life after finally helping him to stay sober: "I'm now living a life beyond my wildest dreams".
According to Will, he now wakes up in the morning and has peace of mind, knowing he can get through the day without resorting to drinking alcohol or taking drugs. He says this makes the relationships with his wife and family much more meaningful.
Will loved the supportive nature of The Elphis community, because having his peers around him at all times meant he didn’t have to go through treatment alone. Instead, he had the much-needed support of others sharing and identifying with his experiences.
Katie says her addiction involved 17 years of treading water, after first being admitted into primary care at age 11. She now she feels that she has her life back after attending The Elphis.
Katie is grateful to the staff for believing in her and instilling hope for what she could achieve. She says that going to The Elphis was the best decision she ever made.
