About us


Here at Kainos Treatment Centre our highly qualified and devoted team of professionals, most of whom have lived experience in addiction and recovery, provide you with a safe, comfortable, and supportive environment within our therapeutic community.

Whilst undergoing treatment you will be treated with dignity and respect whilst challenging and replacing old negative core beliefs and behaviours. Our experienced, dedicated staff and clinicians will walk alongside you on this journey of recovery and wellness.

We provide an individualised and tailored 12-step programme, catering for the specific needs of our residents. Our goal is to achieve and maintain long term sobriety, to finally break the cycle of addiction and suffering. We approach this with a multi-layered Holistic view, education, spiritual, mental, and physical, along with ongoing support and robust aftercare. We believe addiction is a chronic disease. To achieve optimal results and the only real chance of long-term recovery, we must address not only the symptoms of substance abuse itself but also the underlying causes, conditions, attitudes, and beliefs, as well as family dynamics. Through our dedicated and comprehensive treatment programme, along with your commitment and a strong desire to change, you will have the tools and knowledge to go forth and live the full, meaningful and rewarding life that you deserve, free from addiction.

“The life in front of you is more important than the life behind you.”

After years in active addiction I entered recovery and wanted to give back so I began studying towards a career in the addiction field. I have spent years working on my inner self, doing the healing work that was necessary. I am a very spiritual person I like to meditate and use boxing as my emotional release. Helping people is a huge passion of mine I know how quickly that drugs can take hold of your life but I also know how using is not really living. I love coming to work every day and supporting others on their road to recovery to finding happiness in the small things and living life to their fullest potential. The changes that I see in everyone that comes through our doors is amazing I am inspired every day at how much people can achieve.

I started using drugs at a young age. I ended up wasting 10 years of my life. My life got more and more chaotic as it spiralled out of control. The drugs eventually led to crime until an opportunity at drug court gave me a chance to make a change. I entered rehab in 2016 followed by supportive living for a year and turned my life around. I have always had a passion for helping people and this helped me realise recovery is where my heart is and where I wanted to work. I feel privileged to walk alongside others through their journey. Watching someone grow from the person they are when they first come in to the person they become by the time they leave, inspires me, keeps me committed and strengthens my own recovery.
