If Nothing Ever Changed, There Would Be No Such Thing As Butterflies

The Leslie HouseHow you can help

Empowering the women in our care to reach their own unique recovery and life goals.

The Enez Foundation was founded by Shanet Regal, who is a family therapist in addictions and who has herself been affected by addiction. In March of 2019, The Leslie House was opened to provide a space for those who need a safe, sober space to heal and recover.

The Enez Foundation and The Leslie House rely on donations and the assistance of volunteers for continued daily operation. Our home setting environment provides calm and space to reflect, while our team focuses on individual support, as well as compassion, and education that is tailored to the needs of our clients. This provides them with the necessary tools to reintegrate back into society successfully.

We provide a gender-specific programme which empowers the women in our care to reach their own unique recovery and life goals. We focus on healing the whole person and encourage our clients to continue this focus once they have completed the recovery process.
