  • “Adele will always be special to me because when no-one wanted me and I was lost and sick, Adele took me. Here I found my life and myself and I can honestly say I’m living the dream!”

  • “Adele taught me how important the balance is between work, exercise and spiritual maintenance – twenty years later I still live by these principles learned during my stay at Adele.”

  • “Adele’s training classes allowed me to reduce and then to come off my medication. Ultimately they have allowed me to manage my own emotional wellbeing.”

    Ex-resident 2
  • “When I was using my finances were zero and my life was completely unmanageable. The budgeting that I learnt in Adele has allowed me to have financial stability in my life. With financial stability has come manageability and that is key in my relapse prevention strategy.”
