Who We Treat
Men and Women
Men and women attend treatment for addiction in a co-ed setting, going to therapy groups together to share experiences, struggles, and successes.
Using alcohol as a coping mechanism, or drinking excessively throughout the week, signals an alcohol use disorder.
Drug addiction is the excessive and repetitive use of substances, despite harmful consequences to a person's life, health, and relationships.
An eating disorder is a long-term pattern of unhealthy behavior relating to food. Most people with eating disorders have a distorted self-image.
A combination of scientifically rooted therapies and treatments make up evidence-based care, defined by their measured and proven results.
Providers involve family in the treatment of their loved one through family therapy, visits, or both–because addiction is a family disease.
A non-medicinal, wellness-focused approach that aims to align the mind, body, and spirit for deep and lasting healing.

I've stayed in the best Suites in the world, eaten at the best restaurants in the world, attended the wildest parties anywhere, and have had every car I ever wished for ... and to this day 12 years on, my favourite place and time in the world was;
sharing a room for 5 weeks, travelling to a local meeting centre by minibus, drinking caffeine free coffee without my wallet, and with not a penny in my pocket, making calls only in the evening and seeing family and friends consistently once a week, at Life Works!!
Always the image of a very traditional man's man, I cried the morning I was due to leave there, little did I know I would be back years later sharing my experience with the 'guests' and talking about the amazing life that it had shown me was available, possible and most importantly I deserved. My life works today, despite some of my best attempts to mess it up, it works... and this is the place that it all started.
