Our work at Littledale Hall has and continues to be inspired by the work of by Dr Walter Lyon, an eminent professional who dedicated his life’s work to help people overcome their addiction. He believed that those who wanted to overcome their addiction and live more positive and productive lives should be provided with a safe and supportive environment in which they could continue on their journey of recovery. His guiding principles were to challenge the stigma that people faced in addiction and to empower individuals to make informed choices that would enable and promote an abstinent lifestyle.
In 2005 we began the process of building a programme that continues this philosophy. People’s ability to overcome considerable adversity has never ceased to inspire us and continues to be a driving force for us and all at Littledale Hall. We hope that in adhering to these principles we have provided a place where people can redirect their lives and recover their lost ambitions.
