"Turning Lives Around"



Thank you to everyone involved in my start to recovery, directly or indirectly. I couldn’t have asked for a better start and I’m most grateful for the time and effort that was given to me. I’m going to miss you, every one of you. I will keep in contact because I like you all. The time I spent at Watershed has taught me some valuable lessons that I know I will carry with me for the rest of my life………..” – Mandy

I’m very grateful for all the help you gave me. I could not see I had a problem. It must be hard for you, with people like me, with attitudes that believe they can’t be helped, but you put up so much struggle to help me to see I was wrong. If I hadn’t listened, and you hadn’t bothered I wouldn’t have made it this far. If you hadn’t spent all that time on me, I would probably be dead by now………” – Ben

Just a note to once again thank you for the wonderful work you all do. You helped Tom through a very tough time. He is now in the final stages of the long term program he attended after Watershed and he is at present helping other drug users to start the long hard road back.” – Tom’s family

I’d just like to thank each and every one of you for all your care and support. I will remember you often and especially at times when I hear my children laugh and feeling relaxed. And whenever I can help others, part of you will be there. Thank you for everything.” – Michelle

In appreciation of your thoughtfulness, and in all the things you do, you deserve the warmest thanks, so here’s a very special…THANK YOU. Thank you all so much for your guidance, help and support during my stay, for helping me build a solid foundation for my recovery. I’ll never forget my time there. Thinking of you all as my journey continues…” – Natalie

Just a little thanks for the time and care, enabling me to live again.” – Michael

Thank you so very much for putting up with me. I know I can be a hassle at times. I can’t express the gratitude I feel towards this place. You all have given me a gift no-one can take from me. The gift to live a normal life again. Something I took from myself at a young age.
I don’t know what will happen in the future but whatever does happen, I know now there is another way out. Filled with such hate and disrespect for myself when I walked in the door here now I can walk out with my head held high. I will never forget you
