Testimony: Anonymous -HB
I arrived on the 23rd of October 2017 having come straight from another rehabilitation centre, I had been there for 6 weeks. My experience at PRC has been revolutionary, I have been able to work through some difficult experiences which I hadn't dealt with prior to coming here. I believe that I have finally come to a place within myself that feels content and at ease with life. The tension has subsided and I feel like I am actually beginning what it is like to live. This experience was exactly what I needed and I will always be grateful to the staff for accommodating me.
I enjoyed my individual counselling, I found it to be very helpful and always felt like I was free to express myself openly, which for me has been something brand new.
Most of the group sessions which I attended were informative as well as interactive. I found that the group counsellors were always willing to be open to the perspectives of the clients which I believe to be important.
Step Work Counselling
I was able to talk openly and honestly, revisiting some aspects that have now been dealt with. Sometimes frustrating for me as the NA Step process is a very “higher power” based and I just don’t approach my recovery or life, in general, that way.
PRC has been a breath of fresh air, very accepting and open. Having a room to myself has been a real blessing. All facilities are more than sufficient, well set out and have met my needs.
The meals have been fantastic! The best rehab food by a country mile. Lots of vegs, home-cooked goodness and always great helpings.
The ”fellowship” with the other clients has been good, a really relaxed environment. I’m not very interested in the NA/AA meetings and programme as a whole. I’m not against as a supplementary application. I know it helps many recovering addicts and I respect that but it’s not for me.
My experience at PRC has been fantastic! The staff and valuable programme has been an experience that I will always look back on with gratitude.
