"My RSU Recovery Coach has helped me to change the course of my life. Before having this support, I was wandering around in the darkness, alone and afraid, making wrong choices and definitely headed to jail. I am now back on track with my life and achieving the goals I set for myself. I am overcoming barriers that were preventing me from living up to my full potential. I no longer have to feel shame and guilt. I have learned to trust someone (my Recovery Coach) who has walked in my shoes, who does not judge me, who gives me courage and strength to push through every day with hope and purpose and I am no longer wandering in the dark alone. I am forever grateful for RSU for providing such a great service and helping me change the course of my life."

I would recommend Recovery Services Unlimited to anyone wanting to rebuild their life after addiction. "

"Having a Recovery Coach has helped me to find recovery and employment resources that someone my age would not find on their own. Also, in my age group, Recovery is not a thing and so I had no one to talk to before I met my coach and started going to recovery meetings. It has brought accountability and organization to my life and I am feeling solid in my recovery. My coach takes me to appointments and job interviews as well as meetings. I no longer feel alone."
"My Recovery Coach is more than a Coach, she is also my friend. She has helped me with social skills, people and phone skills. I have been able to go to Doctor's appointments and go shopping on my own because I am feeling more confident in myself. I have been connected with my Higher Power, learned new coping skills and have been able to comfort my self to fight my anxiety attacks. I have feel listened to and have been given resources and information that I would not have accessed on my own. I am doing things now that I was afraid to try before. I am stronger and want to stay on this journey of recovery."

I am so grateful to be part of Recovery Services Unlimited. I have hope for my future."

They are very dedicated to their work and I wouldn't be where I am if I had not found Recovery Services Unlimited."
"I have been working with my Recovery Coach for a year and I found that this has been tremendously helpful. I have learned to own and wear my faults and emotional scars with pride because they made me stronger and made me who I am today. I no longer feel ashamed of the person I used to be while on drugs. Knowing that I am not alone in the recovery world makes it that much easier to talk about what I went through,. I could not have gone down and stayed on the recovery road alone. I am very blessed to be where I am in my life and my recovery."
"Getting Recovery Services Unlimited in my life, is one of the best decisions I have ever made for my recovery. I suffered a stroke and an aneurysm, and it is hard to remember and understand some things. Not only have I been helped with accessing community resources, my coach has encouraged me when facing uncomfortable memories and making tough decisions. I wish I would have had Recovery Services Unlimited in my life when I started my recovery journey because I don’t know where I would be without this service. I have 6 years clean and I am grateful."
"After getting our of rehab, again, I knew I had to do something different. I accepted the fact that I couldn't do it alone, so I went to stay at the Recovery Services Unlimited, Recovery Housing Program. At first I disliked it. They made me do things I didn't think I needed. However, over time I started seeing a change in myself that I liked. I was regaining what I thought I had lost forever; self respect. Through being challenged to step out of my comfort zone, I started to believe that I was capable of staying sober, and I surrendered to the process. Recovery Services Unlimited believed in me until I could believe in myself. I wouldn't be where I am without them."
"First of all I'd like to thank everyone responsible for starting this program and keeping it running for addicts such as myself. If it wasn't for the Recovery Services Unlimited, Recovery House Program I'm not sure where I would be in life. Probably dead. This opportunity has given me a chance to get my life back, learn to budget money and rebuild burnt bridges. I've made a lot of new, sober friends the last few months. My Recovery Coach, is extremely knowledgeable. Not only about recovery but about life itself. He knows what I've been through first hand and he genuinely cares about helping me better myself and my life."
"Coming straight out of rehab I knew I would not make it long sober on my own. I was honestly scared to leave rehab. Then I heard about RSU and I knew I needed something like this. I am so glad I chose RSU. My life has become truly amazing and the housing program is a safe place for someone new in recovery. The sober living program has showed me how to live in a house like a normal person and has taught me some accountability. The house managers really care and want to help you grow in your sobriety. I truly do not have enough words to Express my gratitude for the RSU team and how they have helped me change my life!"

Through the House Manager along with one of the greatest influence of my life, my Recovery Coach, I found hope and my purpose in life. This Program gave me back my life. With the help of RSU I have obtained my license, car and housing. I would never have dreamed of the life I have now, none of this would have been possible without RSU."
"I have been struggling with alcoholism for almost 18 years. I never thought there would be hope until I found out about RSU. No matter what I did, RSU never gave up on me. They showed me compassion, understanding and kindness like I've never known. I wouldn't be where I am today without them. Thanks to the Recovery House and my Recovery Coach I've been clean over 6 months, I am able to be a Father to my kids, and I can finally embrace my recovery and life without alcohol."
"When I first got to the Recovery House, I was scared because I was in a new situation. From day one I was very comfortable. I've been able to gain structure, get a new routine, get more organized, get a good job, be responsible and accountable. You realize on the way that there is a lot of support from many different areas. It has been a very positive experience."
"RSU has inspired me to live a sober, clear and clean life away from all the monotony of the drinking and drug-using life. I am appreciative of the help!"
"Upon completion of my detox and rehab, I immediately realized that his was a drop in the "sobriety bucket". While waiting to get into a sober living house, my Recovery Coach filled our time with doctors appts, 12-step meetings and therapy. A busy few days later I was admitted to the RSU Recovery Housing Program. The next 3 months were busy with mandatory meetings, a new job and overall structured environment. This combination, along with one-on-one with my Recovery Coach seemed to foot the bill for my ongoing sobriety. Now coming up on a year, I am truly grateful for RSU and my successful recovery story."
