"Given the opportunity for a decent quality of life"

About: Arnold Lodge Regional Secure Unit

(as the patient),

When I was admitted to Arnold Lodge I was impulsive, passive aggressive and unable to understand my emotions. During my time there I was shown how to recognise my emotions and learnt how to express myself assertively.

I underwent various treatment groups and one to one therapies that gave me confidence and a greater sense of self esteem. I was well cared for and I can honestly say that Arnold Lodge gave me the opportunity to have a decent quality of life.

Furthermore during my time at Arnold Lodge I was able to study for a social science degree which I have now achieved.

Thank you to all the staff for their excellent work.
