Andrew B – Testimonial
I was a professional golfer pushed into the spot light from my parents, I became a successful athlete thinking I knew all the answers in life. However, what learnt early in Villa Paradiso was the very opposite.
I believed my puberty years were somewhat a normal child upbringing but found the contradictory ~ my puberty years were actually the beginning of my reasoning for becoming an addict along with some messed up conflict around my sexuality. Anyway, roll on for another ten years getting married, becoming a father, always moving around to avoid and running away from my feelings it all came to a head in the summer of 2018 when I would find myself in a dark hotel room, wanting to end this life of complete confusion. The very next day, I met up with Matt Idle. (Director of Therapy) From that day forward, my confused melted brain started to reboot.
Villa Paradiso makes a welcoming environment for any persons that feel lonely, vulnerable or just feels they need serious help. My time here was incredible fun, hard at times along with some of the best friends I have ever made. I truly support there method of discovery which leads you into your own recovery for when you meet the world again. I am writing this after 3 weeks out of rehab and I can say with full commitment that I would never use again but more importantly, I can see a fulfilling future that awaits. I sit today content with my life, the choices I can make for me and these changes have made a massive impact to the people and family I damaged when I was a using addict.
Thank you to all the family at villa Paradiso , and before I forget the food is great, the rooms are wonderful and you even get to watch the odd movie. A fantastic place I miss you guys!
