T, United Kingdom – December 2019 – Crack/Sex/Alcohol

I was at Liberty for 8 months where I truly learnt to live a fun SOBER life again. I could not have achieved this without the great staff and structure offered! I owe my life now to Liberty Home.

S, Cape Town – October 2019 – Heroine/Sex/shopping

Firstly, I stayed at Liberty for three months. Before I came to Liberty, my life was a mess and my situation was hopeless and I had no hope for myself and my life. I was caught up in various drug addictions, sexual addictions and many inappropriate behaviours . I tried to stop with these addictions and negative behaviours on my own but fail miserably everytime. All my relationships was in turmoil and I neglected my relationship with my  4 year old daughter aswell. My appearance looked like garbage, my self esteem was low, I hated myself, felt rejected, ashamed, guilty and I had alot of regrets about my past. I didnt know where to go to, how to solve my problems, who to reach out to for help until I made contact with Morgane(the owner of Liberty).  Morgane then advised me to do primary treatment care at another treatment center in Constantia due to the fact the Liberty Home only does Secondary and Tertiary care(Reintegration and Sober Living).

I then managed to finish my primary care in Constantia. After completing primary care, I made my way to Liberty Home to do secondary care.  Consequently, from the onset, I had the most amazing experience ever as a Liberty resident. For the first time I felt "HOME" and "Accepted" and not judge for the things I've done in the past. I had the privilege to share my guilt and shame and got free of those after sharing. I also had the privilege to do life with other addicts who comes from all walks of life and different countries aswell which made my experience unique and memorable.

Liberty Home gave me my life back, especially how the owner and staff treated me like a king and never made me feel like I'm worth nothing. I learnt to take responsibility and be responsible for my life. I learnt to become unselfish and grateful and humble aswell. And lastly, I learnt that there are people out there in the world who wants to help addicts like me, I found that help at Liberty Home. The only question is "how badly do you want help to the point that you'll humble yourself and reach out for help"

S, September 2019 – Eating disorder/Alcohol

Liberty Home came on my path exactly at the time I needed it. I realised I was in need of a new approach and soon, in order to survive. I was ready. But how do you do it? As a young Belgian girl, suffering from an alcohol addiction in combination with an Liberty Home came on my path exactly at the time I needed it.

I realised I was in need of a new approach and soon, in order to survive. But how do you do it? As a young Belgian girl, suffering from an alcohol addiction in combination with an eating disorder, it’s hard work keeping up appearances. My mind and my body were so tired. I tried doing it alone, but I couldn’t stay clean. Scared, broken and lonely I arrived in South Africa.

Bit by bit, the therapy sessions, sport activities brought back my old self. What made me accept my faith the most? Being surrounded with so many beautiful people who understand my story and who lived my story. I am forever grateful for the LH team, they helped me grow out to a strong woman, capable of facing life’s problems with a clear mind.

D, Belgium – June 2018 - Alcohol

To everyone it may help/concern:
I suffered from severe alcohol abuse for several years. I refused to acknowledge I had a problem. My environment tried countless number of times to help. Without success. Lots of people have a family member, friend or acquaintance that could really use help. Unfortunately, not many people know how to address the issue correctly.

It was only when I met the right people, I was willing to listen and accept help. These people know what I was going through, and still are. Every single day. They showed me a way that makes more sense to me. With their expertise, the people of Liberty Home gave me an environment where I felt safe.

They helped me to put things back into the right perspective. I learned how to address my issues in serenity. Today, I am proud to say I am 6 months sober. I am grateful for all the people who helped me to achieve this.
