Testimony: "Working the steps helped me to be closer to my Higher Power"

Updated: Mar 9

Testimony: LesibanaM

When I first came to PRC Recovery I was very scared because I didn’t know what it is like in rehab. My self-confidence was low and I was feeling sorry for myself. As time went by I learned about self-esteem, grief, anger management and conflict and these topics built up my self-confidence, self-image and self-awareness. Working the steps helped me to communicate and be closer to my Higher Power and I know that God will help me remove my shortcomings. I have also learned to follow the rules again and man up. When I jumped into the quarry I didn’t hold my breath and I almost drowned and that is also when I experienced my Higher Power because I almost died. I was given the chance to be head resident which really showed me that I can take responsibility to actually tell people what they need to do and how to be of service.

Individual Counselling

My counsellors Octavea and Margaret asked me about how I am holding up in recovery, I have opened up to them and they gave me very good advice.

Group Counselling

Octavea’s classes about grief, self-esteem, self-sabotage and conflict gave me knowledge on how I can deal with life challenges and how to avoid relapse.

Step Work Counselling

The step work counsellor gave me the courage I needed to change myself, motivated me to change my behaviour by taking action.


The facility is great, but I suggest they should put a swimming pool and allow us to have our phones with us, take them when it is time for class.


The meals are great, I do not see anything wrong with the meals - we eat four times a day.


We have the Just For Today meetings in the mornings, AA meetings on Tuesdays and NA meetings on Thursdays. We all get a chance to share specific topics.


We should not do goodwill every weekend. The meals should be changed so we don’t eat the same meals every week.
