Your Words

In this section you will find some quotes and testimonials from previous patients who have used services at The Retreat.

"In our opinion, The Retreat - and Naomi unit - are the epitome of what treatment for eating disorders can and ought to be. A centre of excellence to be emulated wherever and whenever possible. We still cannot believe we were lucky enough to have accessed your services and fervently hope that they remain available and funded for those in need, for the foreseeable future. We know, beyond doubt, that, assuming she had been lucky enough to have survived this far, our daughter would still be battling with the illness now, without having received your help."  - Carer

 "I successfully graduated from the programme and have not had a relapse since as I was taught how to take responsibility for myself and my problems and to deal with life instead of running away from it literally and figuratively."  - Ex Patient

"It is unbearable to think where we would be without the safe haven that people who work at The Retreat create, helping desperate carers, friends, families and their loved one back onto the road of recovery wherever possible."  - Carer
