Passionate About Recovery
We are here to help both addicts and the families, friends, spouses, friends, work colleagues etc.
Our son Mitchell is an addict and we had no idea how to deal with him and what to do and after a very long, hard and extremely painful journey we manged to get him the help he needed. Now our son is helping us, as we have decided to allocate and invest our time, effort and resources as a family to and tackle these afflictions , because he knows what it is like to be an addict and what it takes to get clean and sober (he is now over 5 years clean and sober). We obviously have the experience of living with an addict, what we had to do in order to help him to make the decision to get clean.
We have all decided as a family to do this in order to share our collected experience with those who are in the similar, if not same position as we were a few years ago.
No one decides to become an addict. At Wellvale Recovery Centre we see addiction as a symptom of a larger illness, almost as an attempt to self medicate and keep that illness at bay. Here, our philosophy is different. We believe that treating an addiction is only part of the healing process. We look to rehabilitate the whole, Mind, Body and Soul.
Addiction recovery is a process which we believe in with every fibre of our being. Each staff member at Wellvale Recovery Centre has been affected by addiction in one form or another. The counselling staff have not only studied and qualified in the field of addiction treatment, but are addicts and alcoholics themselves who have multiple years of recovery behind their names. We found this to be extremely important as nobody can teach and understand better than those who have walked the very same path as either yourself or your loved one.
We have a multi disciplinary team to ensure that we cover all aspects of addiction recovery, we have:
Male and Female Counsellors
With each member of our team all offering their own unique experience, we are able to develop detailed and in depth personalised recovery programmes for each one of our clients. We ensure that we leave no stone un-turned in order to ensure that we do everything possible to assist individuals to get the help they need.
As a family that has been struck by the disease of addiction, the Directors of Wellvale Recovery Centre are passionate about helping the loved ones of the addict and alcoholic by offering their experience and guidance through this entire process as part of what we do and without the additional financial burden.

Meet Wellvale’s Creators’
The reason for me wanting to get involved is because I believe the support of the family is imperative in the rehabilitation of an addict however support doesn’t mean ENABLING and that’s the message I want to share with the families and significant others in an addict’s life – Enable the addict and you will bury the addict!
I am an addict and alcoholic in recovery. I am passionate about this process and helping people to break free from the life of addiction and to experience the joy and freedom of recovery. Having studied addiction and lived through it, our experience as a family during this turmoil makes what we have to offer very unique and we want to use our experience to help others just like us to get better and live an amazing life going forward, free from all mind and mood altering substances.
After having learned what we have over the last 3 years I want to assist addicts and families achieve what we have as a family, with our son Mitchell. It is truly one of life’s great gifts when you get something back that you once thought was lost forever. We as a family believe in a holistic approach to recovery in as much as supporting the addict, however the will and the drive to recover has to come from the addict!
