DayHab truly saved my life. When I lived in a time where there was no light, they saved me from the darkness.
I never knew that there was a way out of the hell I was in. DayHab gave me the tools to live agin, to rebuild a life that I thought I would never get back.
Thank you for giving me a second chance at life!
Thankyou DayHab for everything you've done, after my time in recovery I now look at my life with great hope and with such a promising future. I will take all that I have learnt from this place and better my life.
Neil is a legend (Counsellor), I owe my recovery to him. Also, I must say that I am so happy to have met such inspiring people like Sheryl and Jack, and the love an kindness I recieved from the other patients made me feel like we were a big happy family.
To all those who need help and understanding, you will not find a better place than at DayHab.
"I was 'admitted' to Dayhab on Monday, 14/12/2014, not solely of my own volition, as alcoholics like myself find it difficult to admit, initially, that we suffer from alcoholism, but my family were so frustrated at my behaviour when I drank that they insisted I do something about it. That was 17 months ago.
In hindsight it was a very good decision for me to live in for 28 days so that I had time to, firstly, detox from my so called-friend 'alcohol' and also to take advantage of the counselling sessions on offer at Dayhab. As the Dayhab facility works in conjunction with the Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) Program of Recovery I was introduced to other alcoholics that understood me as other people without the disease of alcoholism can't.
With the combination of counselling, looking in to myself and the AA Program I have come to understand that I needed to surrender to win!!! Alcoholism, like any other addiction, is so debilitating that without the help of Dayhab and the Program of AA I was on a very dangerous path and I have since learned that for me 'to drink is to die!'.
If you are having an addictive problem that is challenging you, I would fully recommend Dayhab and AA in conjunction with one another.
My life is so much better today without having to face my drunk self on a daily basis and I am sure this disease would have eventually led to losing my family, my friends and my self-esteem, if not my life!!!
Dayhab also offers a follow-up service once you have 'graduated' whether you do the 10 day program or the 28 day live-in program. I am so grateful for my sobriety, one day at a time, thanks to Dayhab and the Program of AA".
To Whom It May Concern,
As a former client of DayHab, I write to express my support for the program and the staff involved in its administration. In my experience the effectiveness of the program is second to none, and I would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
The DayHab staff members are consummate professionals, and experts in a very specialized field. Their insight into my condition showed a great depth of understanding, which I have not found anywhere else, and provided the most effective treatment I have ever received. Their compassionate approach encouraged honest self-reflection and allowed for healing to occur at an accelerated rate. While they did not shy away from providing “tough love” when required their approach was not punitive, unlike some other addiction treatment centres.
I learnt more about my own condition and the effective treatment of addiction during my time at DayHab than I would previously have thought possible. The atmosphere at the Centre is peaceful and welcoming, making it conducive to effect group therapy and honest self-appraisal. Clients are supplied with high quality literature pertinent to the topics covered during each day’s activities, which served to deepen my understanding of said topics and reinforce the lessons learned.
Both my GP and specialist therapist have been thoroughly impressed with the results of my treatment at DayHab and have requested further information in order to refer other clients to the service.
The completion rate exceeds that of any other such program that I am aware of and I believe the proportion of clients who remain clean post-completion would likewise be higher.
I can testify to the efficacy of the program and offer my unconditional support to the team at DayHab.
DayHab saved my life!
Where most rehab facilities kick you out after your allocated time is over, the guys at DayHab will keep you on until you're ready. They care greatly for their clients and focus on recovery not just from addiction but the underlying life problems that have caused you to use in the first place. They relate to addicts beacuse the staff are recovering addicts.
DayHab was the key to building my foundation of recovery. Regardless of your addiction, DayHab can and will help you to find the freedom from your addiction. When you feel like there is no where else to go and have run out of options to beat the disease of addiction call 1800-DAYHAB and give Mick and Jack the chance to change your life like they have mine.
My story is no different to every other parent of an addict.
My son is a drug addict and unfortunately although the details vary the theme is the same. Addiction destroys families, friendships and lives. When you are on the rollercoaster of a loved one in the midst of addiction life is hell and at times so unbearable you don’t know who is in more pain the addict or the parent.
Throughout my son’s journey I met many well-meaning misinformed people giving wrong information. It was not until I met Mick Hall that I knew I had found the answer to my sons addiction and recovery was a real possibility.
A year ago my son’s life was spinning out of control and he was taking me with him. Today he is clean, happy and in recovery. This time last year my family was falling apart and so was I. Yesterday my son and husband went fishing in Port Phillip Bay together and caught Snapper. If someone had told me this time last year that I would be in this position today I would have said they were on drugs!
I believe Mick and his incredible team not only saved the life of my son but mine as well. Mick taught me that no matter what, you can’t unlearn what you learn so every attempt at rehabilitation got my son closer to recovery. I too now have more understanding, insight and education into addiction and the insidious cruel consequences.
Today is a good day I have learnt to live one day at a time and with Mick and everyone’s help at Dayhab hundreds of families now live in peace.
Dayhab is special we tried many programs before we found this one Mick and his team are coming from a very different place that is why they have such incredible success. They are doing it from the heart it is not about the money it is about saving lives and they have saved many.
I know where to send anyone suffering from the rages of addiction and it is to Dayhab we are very happy customers.
Thanks DayHab you truly have saved my life and given me opportunities beyond my wildest dreams. And the aftercare program along with the NA program has kept me recovery focused.
Very grateful, Lance
The best move I ever made!
My life was out of control until I found Dayhab and the caring people who work there. Thanks to Jack, Mick and the team I now have a smile on my face and a life to live!
Thanks are not enough!
Finally sober after 29 years of daily drinking!
Thank you DayHab ;)
Great program, learnt heaps and just feeling so great.
