I arrived into the airport nervous and excited to begin the path to a sober future After addiction had crippled my life for so many years. Ray met me at the airport and I instantly felt comfortable with him. We drove back to his place and I had a well needed sleep. The first thing that I remember was waking up to a amazing meal prepared by the chef and sitting outside my room looking out over his pond and the rice fields. I instantly knew I was where I needed to be . The atmosphere and the setting is beautiful, quiet and the fields of green allowed me to feel calm for the first time in years. When we began our sessions Ray catered our therapy to what I wanted to gain from my experience with him. I enjoyed morning walks with Ray through the rice fields, amazing home cooked food by the chef , regular exercise at the gym and most of all my daily sessions with Ray.The Better Life place gave me exactly what I needed to move forward in my life .I would highly reccomend Ray and his rehab to anyone who is seeking help My experience with Ray will stay with me for the rest of my life. Although it has been a long journey with bumps in the road I feel that my time with Ray gave me the best start possible and I will be forever grateful for my experience!

Finding this place has been some of the best luck I’ve had in my whole life. And working with Ray has given me hope after a long time. I know I will forever cherish every second I have spent at The Betterlife Place. The programme was very fulfilling for me and I enjoyed all the activities that Ray had arranged for the duration of my stay. Ray and his family, as well as the staff have helped me see life in a different perspective. I highly recommend The Betterlife Place for anyone who’s thinking of coming here.
