Ecem Gunal

Firstly I want to say thank you to the Recovery Lodge staff and members .

I am 24 years old. I never thought that stopping drinking and taking drugs would be possible at this age. I went into rehab because my family wanted me to and I wanted to please my family. I didn’t know there was a solution.

From the moment I walked into that rehab everyone was so friendly, I was so nervous, I didn’t want to stay there but they made me feel so welcome. At the end I didn’t want to leave, it became like my home.

I got to know myself in rehab. Counsellors were really good, they work really differently but they challenged the inner me. This place just didn’t help me with my using, it also helped me with finding who I really am.

I stayed in The Recovery Lodge for nearly 3 months and my family always says that it’s the best money they ever spent.
