Lifechanging... One of the most outstanding experiences of my life. Got so many insights in myself and environment. I didn't even want to go home after the 9 weeks, because I really felt like "one" with the whole group.

Never felt so good being clean and sober!

In holland we have a say which goes like this; it's better 2 have a good neighbor than a far friend. So thank you so much for being a great neighbor! I promised you to let you know how things are going so here it is!


I've been in holland for over 2 months now and it's been an even heavier rollercoaster than it was in stellenbosch.

I had 2 leave my old house and there was no job so no income.


The bills kept on going in and the money kept on NOT going in;-)


But I've found a new job as an assistent shop manager for a large mobile phone retail company, and I got my own new place in a new city!

My girl and i have started our relationship all over again and we're having a lot of difficulties because i completely Brooke down her trust BUT 2 months on the road again and working on it together and we're growing and loving our moments together and it feels like we're getting there!


So life is pretty rough on its times but at least I'm finally living life and I can cry of happiness instead of anger laugh of joy instead of hiding my true emotions.


And if you wouldn't have done what you did with the clinic I might not be that far right now, I wouldn't have been capable too finish my program and started living life for the fullest!

So not bad for a farmer;-)

I feel so good about the journey I had in treatment. I look forward to my new life and have the confidence that my toolbox is fully equipped to face the challenges of a sober life. The staff at Bloemendal is very very committed, very professional and they never ever give up on you (and believe me I’ve tried....).

They really go beyond their day-to-day job to teach you how to have a sober life and enjoy it.

For years I was wearing a mask, for years I was in my own world full of shame, guilt and sadness. Always having to lie to hide my addiction and I have hurt many people through that, most of all myself. It didn’t know what was right or wrong anymore. I believed my own lies and did everything to be able to afford my addiction.

Thanks to the great counselling and all the lectures about addiction, I now have a different way of handling things. It is an amazing programme that changed my life. I like myself again, have confidence and know that I deserve recovery. It will always stay in my heart and I want to thank all the staff. It was a great experience.
