When someones life is in crisis as a result of addiction family, friends and the whole community suffers. Saddest is the terrible suffering of children. The centres success is due to two key factors: The dedication of the staff who deliver the programme and the inspiring tranquil environment. I give my full support to the restoration of the Springhill facility
