Sarina Wheatman
Addiction Treatment Programme Manager
Sarina Wheatman

Sarina Wheatman

Sarina has worked at The Manor Clinic since 2011 bringing with her a wealth of experience from many years of working with addictions, mainly in the UK but also in Jersey and Holland. She is in the role of Addictions Programme Manager, helps run the inpatient treatment groups and also provides training on addictions for all staff members. 

"One never really stops learning about this illness.  I have over the years worked in treatment centres in Jersey and Holland, but always found my way back to England and Priory where I believe some of the best treatment for addictions is to be found."

Training

Sarina has been a fully qualified member of (FDAP) Federation of drug and alcohol professionals since 2000. She also holds an accreditation for (EFT) Emotional Freedom Technique.

Research interests

"I wrote my first book Twisted Wires because the myths and misunderstanding about addiction is so prevalent.  I wanted to write a simple easy to understand book explaining the disease and what is needed to work a good recovery Written for the skittish hard to concentrate addicts and their families.  I have been sober myself now for over 30 years and use the techniques in the book and also the methods taught  at the Manor Clinic.  My second book followed soon after as I discovered I loved the writing process, and the subject matter is so complex and compelling I needed to say more.  The last book was my first attempt at fiction.  I wrote a story about Rehab, the stories are mainly true but obviously the actors in my story are disguised. 

My aim with my books and the educational aspect of treatment in the clinic is ‘to change perceptions one book, or one lecture at a time’  slowly perceptions about the disease of addiction is changing and therefore of course some of the stigma that keeps people away from treatment is changing.  There is more work to be done in the area, and I believe I have other books that need to be written."

Helping my patients “see the truth” about what their addictions have been doing to their lives is a passion and is of course the start of any recovery story.  This process is difficult, sad and sometimes shaming, but once achieved can illicit massive changes for the individual brave enough to go there.
