“Avalon is an amazing place to recover. It has incredible resources, support, warmth and love. It is by far my favourite place to come.”
“Avalon has connected me to amazing women who share my struggle and have taught me how to live a better life. By coming to Avalon, I gain strength, hope and connection.”
“Avalon is the only place where I know I am in a safe place, and have no fear.”
“Thank you Avalon for being in my life, helping me out. I feel like home when I come here, I feel comfortable talking here, I feel safe, calm, relaxed.”
