What some of our clients say

 

 'Jonny started rehab late January after an explosive row with his girlfriend of 4 years.  Her parents had become involved and it was time that things changed.  With some help from a friend Jonny was accepted at Acquiesce.  From that day onward when he traveled to Bolton by train,  not only did his life change, but so did mine and the rest of my family.Jonny was in a safe place.  I did not have to worry if he was eating, driving, working or even breathing!!!  Something I had not done for many years.  I started to sleep the night through and so did my husband, Jonny's step-father.  We stopped bickering about him and whether he was still smoking cannabis or not.  We had no idea he was using cocaine.   I only spoke to him for a few minutes a day and within days I noticed the change in him.  My son was slowly coming back to us. He has changed  so much in the three months he has been at Acquiesce; he doesn't get angry and shout, he seems to be so much happier in his own skin.  He has developed life skills, like cleaning, washing and cooking for himself that he never had before.  Most of all he started to believe in himself and I know that is because the work that Acquiesce had done with him; giving him the tools not to relapse. When he came home for a weekend the change was also physical; he had put on weight, was a good colour, his wicked sense of humour has come back and best of all he wasn't dirty and didn't smell.   I can't thank Acquiesce enough for giving my son a chance to totally change his life and also for giving me my life back.'

Anonymous Client - 
My recovery journey started at the beginning of January 2018 where I went into a well-known expensive rehab for 7 weeks. They did a very good job of getting me off the drink and drugs but that was it really, the focus was to get you abstinent and they make you sit all day every day and completely immerse you in recovery without any break for your brain to take anything in or understand really what the issue is, I wasn’t able to have a conversation with friends or family about life or anything other than recovery, this really wasn’t a healthy way for me to recover and ultimately 10 days after I left the well-known expensive rehab I ended up relapsing. 
I then came across Acquiesce and was given a great first impression which is really what made me come here as I was very sceptical that they could help me initially as my first experience at rehab didn’t work very well and I thought I had given one of the most expensive rehab in the country a shot so how in the world was Acquiesce at 1/10th of the price going to be able to sort me out. Thankfully I came here and it has been the best decision I have ever made in my life, I feel like have been reborn here and it is the start of my new life clean off drink, drugs and all my other addictions. From the very first day I arrived I have been made to feel a part of the Acquiesce family which has made me always feel extremely comfortable and at home here, all the staff have been nothing but unbelievable and I can say that over the last year of my life I have spent many hours with many different therapists and I have never come across a better therapist than what I have in Acquiesce
It is not a large rehab which suits me well as you get a lot of one and one therapy and you are able to participate a lot more in the group sessions which makes me feel a massive part of every group and helps me to move forward and feel accomplished at the end of every day, there has never been a day I haven’t grown since getting here and I am currently on my 10th week with 2 more weeks to go. I came here and started at step 1 and I am currently on step 10 and will leave here having finished the 12 steps, being able to do this in your time at rehab is nothing but amazing as the steps has helped me transform my life and having the support of the therapist and other staff here is probably the most ideal way of doing them. 
When I arrived at Acquiesce I had no hobbies or interest, I didn’t even know really what I liked or didn’t like and they have helped me understand myself in ways they don’t even realise, every week, to break up the sessions and therapy they take us to do boxercise, someone comes into the rehab to do yoga with us, we go bowling, to the gym or to play golf, which is great for exercise and to give your mind a break from the learning, it is also a great stepping stone for me to now continue with these things once I leave treatment, on top of this I am learning how to play guitar which is something I never even thought of trying before I got here. 
When I was looking at different rehabs to go to after I relapsed the main thing that put me off going somewhere was the accommodation and how you had to share rooms with other people and you didn’t really get much personal space. When I came to look around Acquiesce I was pretty much sold when they showed me the house where we live as every person has their own bedroom, but not just a bedroom a massive bedroom and there was almost 1 bathroom/shower room per person, the kitchen and living space were very nice as well as the location of where the house is, it is on a really nice quiet road and down the road from the park which was a nice place for us to relax after rehab. 
I owe my life and a lot more to everyone at Acquiesce, when I arrived I had a fractured relationship with my wife and daughter, I had lost the trust of my family, I had a property business which was on the rocks and I had debt and bills coming left, right and centre. I honestly did not know what to do, where to go or how to deal with any of my problems, I wanted to run away. I can sit here after 10 weeks while writing this and can tell you that they have sat with me day in, day out and helped me rebuild my trust with my family, they have helped me rebuild my marriage and integrate back with my wife and daughter, my business has been stabilised and I can get back into this when I leave rehab and they have helped me manage all my finances, I am now in a position where I don’t feel suffocated anymore and not looking to run away from my life
The only mistake I have made since the start of my recovery journey is not coming straight away to Acquiesce, I made the mistake of thinking the most expensive rehab is going to be the best rehab and boy was I proven wrong.
I will forever be grateful to the Acquiesce family and couldn’t recommend a better rehab for someone to go to who is struggling with drugs, drink, gambling or any addiction.’
