Alumni Update: Amazing Experience
I’ve been clean and sober for 14 months and 15 days and seriously owe my life to The Cabin in more ways than one.
The Cabin was such an amazing experience for me that I know I’ll never forget and will always appreciate. The facilities, food and activities are what you’d expect at a resort, however, the real hero in my eyes is the program itself. Mind, body and soul are all looked upon and nothing is left unturned in the pursuit of a healthy, happy addiction free life.
The staff are incredibly skilled and knowledgeable about the dynamics of addiction. They not only helped me understand the dynamics, they also gave me the tools to remain free from addiction.
I’ve been clean and sober for 14 months and 15 days and seriously owe my life to The Cabin in more ways than one. Not only has it given me a new beginning, but it has given me a purpose with direction that I so desperately needed. I’m 2/3rd through my Diploma in Counselling and now work full time as a Community Rehabilitation Support Worker in Mental Health with the vision to become an Alcohol and Drugs Counsellor so I can give back what The Cabin gave to me – support, understanding, acceptance and most of all my life.

I’m not going to lie and say everything has just been a walk in the park because there have been bumps in the road, but this life is just so much better then my old one.
Today I have been sober for just over 6 months and my life has improved beyond my wildest hopes thanks to the The cabin. I came to The Cabin broken because of my using. I was just stuck in my shell. My using had led me to dark places were I didn’t belong, doing things I would never have done sober and the next stop would’ve been jail and death – but thanks to the counsellours, staff and the people there I got a good kickstart for a new life. I just did the things they told me to do and followed the program. The Cabin saved my life and I’m really greatful for this second chance.
Since I got back home I just kept on doing the things I was adviced to do, going to meetings, getting a sponsor, doing the stepwork, doing service and cutting all contact with my old life. I’m not going to lie and say everything has just been a walk in the park because there have been bumps in the road, but this life is just so much better then my old one – so if things get difficult I remind myself how it was before treatment.
