  1. 10yrs ago this place saved my life. I went in with my daughter hating the place. Grew to love it. I quite often think of the time I spent there.

    After I left, I jumped off the program and have not looked back.
    Because of phoebe house, I learnt the tools I needed to make it in the world.
    Thank you to the crew back then and my caseworker lorraine.

    Hi my names Sarah Jane and it’s been nearly 13 long years since I graduated rehab at Phoebe house…. I can’t thank you guys enough as my life has had a massive turn around, I now am a mother of 8 children I’m married and I’ve just opened my own cleaning business… I left rehab at little bay to give birth to my now 12 year old daughter Shontai- Lee. I was wondering what staff were still around from 12 years ago because I wanted to pop in and visit staff…. I can’t thank you guys enough it’s a long road but it’s worth every minute as I’m still clean to this very day… all I can say is anyone that’s thinking of going to Phoebe…. DO IT, IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE AS IT DID MINE.. thank you xxx
