Our addictions usually start in early life. We use substances to join in with peers, show off, avoid and escape from negative feelings. It can be any one of many things including culture, community, abuse, family breakdown, bereavement. As the grip of addiction increases we start to carry around more and more guilt and shame, weighing us down and dragging us further into trouble leading to crime, mental health issues, estrangement from family and children. We are trapped in the vicious cycle and can’t see a way out. It takes a great deal of courage to admit that addiction is controlling and ruining your life and the lives of those around you. If you are willing to take that step of courage then Yeldall may be the place for you to change, learn and grow.
The Yeldall Manor programmes are designed to help residents to live a fulfilled and new life free from using drugs or alcohol. The level of change necessary in order to achieve this is considerable, and we believe that the acceptance and structure found at Yeldall Manor are essential to bring about this change. Love and acceptance for each resident as a unique individual provides hope and dignity. The discipline and structure of the programme provides the environment in which old feelings and attitudes can be challenged, and new ones tried and tested.
Yeldall Manor is firmly based in the love of Jesus. That love extends to men of all faiths or none. There is no judgment or condemnation of any resident no matter what his background. A resident makes his own journey at Yeldall with assistance and love from the staff team and his peers on the programme.
If you are sick and tired of being sick and tired and want to break the cycle then take a look at the website, ring in for advice, be brave and defy conformity.
Getting into Recovery will have a profound effect on you, your family and your friends. You could be the one to take the first step that encourages so many others to be bold and change for an infinitely better life.
