Thanks."

"All the staff deserves special recognition.  Staff has been positive, supportive and caring across the board.  Their attitude made a big difference in our ability to feel we can achieve our goal of sobriety.  Excellent food and upbeat attitude of the staff also contributed to a positive recovery.  The entire staff was consistently helpful and they did their best to maintain a cheerful, welcoming attitude."

"I am a very private person and there are very few people I could share this unfortunate period of my life with and Fernside was a pleasant surprise.  I feel fortunate to have had such an intelligent, caring and decent group of people here at the same time that I was here.  It made all the difference in terms of my being able to share my thoughts and problems with others.  From my first day here I knew I was in the right place at the right time.  Thank you."

Thank you everyone at Fernside."
