Wherever my journey in life may lead, I will forever regard PRC as the place where I was allowed to discover how to take my first steps. When I arrived, I had no expectation, I had no hope, I had no faith, not in others & certainly not in myself. But the management & staff would waste no time in getting to work & within the 3 months I came to stay at PRC I would discover the depths of human kindness, understanding & generosity that forms the foundations on which this program is built. Lines between client & staff are often blurred by the sheer effort to engage with clients on a personal level. All to help us discover our own way, our own strengths, values & reason for wanting to live sober & clean lives. You always have my trust, love & gratitude, thank you to the staff that contributed to my recovery.
My experience with having Jane as my counsellor has been invaluable. I don’t see how I would have been able to grow in the ways that I know I have, without compassion & guidance. She is patient, kind, honest & her ability to make me feel understood astounds me.
With the exception of a handful of groups, it has been an informative & positive experience. I have taken valuable insight from the content itself & from the group facilitators. Jane, Priscilla & Kathy are engaging, positive & inviting. Overall a great asset.
Step Work Counselling
Mart allowed me to formulate my own “way” by challenging me & by also allowing me to express myself. I personally took a lot from working the steps & found that although we didn’t always agree, Mart made me feel comfortable.
The facility itself is perfectly equipped, neat, clean & comfortable. With the exception of the electricity outages which caused some challenges, my time here was without any inconvenience or struggle.
The food has always been delicious & the portions generous. I found the diet balanced & healthy. I also found that at mealtimes, there was a pleasant and social atmosphere hosted in kindness & comfort.
Fellowship It is understandable that the area makes for slow growth concerning outside visitors & new-comers to the fellowship, but that will change as time goes on. I think that allowing the clients to chair meetings allows them to feel an equal part & that’s good.
The staff are friendly, inviting & kind. The program is open & invites initiative & allows for self-discovery.
