It’s not about how you fall but how you pick yourself up

Testimony: MvumeM

I relapsed because I was thinking that I had everything under control, I thought I could do this on my own. Only to find out I was fooling myself, my life became worse than before. I was ashamed to come back to PRC Recovery thinking that I will be judged. I went to another rehab and nothing happened, I was being punished for being an addict. I came back here with my guilt and shame and they welcomed me with open arms and made me a part of the family.

I was broken, miserable and my life was unmanageable in all areas. I was willing to pick myself up again. It's not about how you fall but how you are willing to pick yourself up and fight for your life because no one can do it for you, you have to do it yourself. Know that you don’t have to be perfect. Strive for progress and live your life like it is your last day because nobody is promised tomorrow. It works if you work it - you are worth it.

Individual Counselling

Individual counselling was good. The counsellors are always there when you need them and there is no judgement. Always willing to help you get better.

Group Counselling

Some group sessions I learned something from them. Others I could not relate. I was just keeping myself busy.

Step Work Counselling

It was very good. I discovered certain things about myself and how I really need God in my life. I have found a new way to live.


The facility is wonderful. Nice view of the mountain and nature. You can see that God is alive and have peace of mind. The facility is clean and has good rooms and a games room.


Meals are more than enough, different meals every day. Three meals a day plus bread with spreads during tea time.


Meetings are good, you can share what is going on with you and realize how serious this disease is. I know now that I am not alone in this fight.


Meetings should be four times a week. Step work three times a week and weekends get some fresh air and be exposed to the outside world.
