How was your life before coming to RiMa?
My life was uncontrollable. I had lost everything, my job, my partners trust, my family. I was at rock bottom, and I knew that my life was done. Mostly, I lost myself.
What changes did you experience in RiMa?
When coming to RiMa, I was not sure if it would work, but I had nothing else to lose but everything to gain if things go well. So, I went in willingly and ready to do the work. The long talks with my counsellor, the programme, the time I had to myself and to meditate on my life changed my whole life and perspective on a lot of things. My spiritual journey and the programme completely changed my life.
What is your Life after RiMa like?
I came into Rima with nothing but left with everything. I left with so much self-love, self-worth, self-awareness and a purpose. My family and I are closer than ever thanks to the family therapy, I can love in a better way and my partner, and I are doing so well because I understand myself and other people better (I was unaware how selfish my using was making me) I got my job back and it came with a promotion, I’m back in school, and I’m the happiest I have ever been.
Can you recommend someone to RiMa?
Personally, yes, I would, and I do recommend RiMa to anyone and everyone. I’m almost 5 months sober and I couldn’t do it without their help.
