Recovery Companions New Zealand was inspired by two like minded individuals who both have been faced with the destruction of active addiction and the havoc it played in their lives.
After hitting “rock bottom” they were both faced with the decision to keep drinking and using until the end or do everything possible to overcome the disease of addiction and live a life worth living. Through determination and hard work, they chose the latter.
After completing multiple residential rehabilitation programs as well as getting involved in recovery based programs and learning how to live a life free from the influences of alcohol and other drugs, they retrained to work in the recovery services industry.
Sadly it was evident that some people struggle with reintegration back into daily life and becoming healthy, productive members of society. On countless occasions they witnessed good people who were trying their hardest to escape addiction, falling back into the cycle of relapse and subsequent despair.
They decided they wanted to make a difference in improving peoples chances of a healthy recovery through a holistic approach. This was how Recovery Companions came into fruition.
