I discovered Recovery International over four years ago. I was looking for help in a group type environment. What attracted me to your website before the current change was a quote that stated, “You are not alone.” I viewed a video of a woman who suffered from Schizophrenia. She claimed she lived a more controlled normal life all due to International Recovery. I was blown away by her comments on the video. What also attracted me was a listing of all the mental health illnesses Recovery International claimed to help people with. I thought something good would happen in my life if I gave Recovery a shot. I went to meetings for six months every Friday. The first few meetings was a gradual  understanding of Dr. Low’s “Tempermental Lingo.” Within the first month eighty percent of my struggles with fear, anxiety, and depression vanished. I also allowed Dr. Low to be my neuropsychiatrist through his teachings in his books. It’s just like the title in one of his books, “Mental Health Through Will Training.” I was willing and just needed the training. I also needed to remove the stygma attached to mental health. Meeting other people in the group meetings had me realize that I wasn’t alone. The group leader is named Dorothy who is very dedicated to her voluntary work at Recovery. I haven’t been able to attend meetings in over four years due my employment. But I still apply the Spotting and Recovery Tools when I get worked up over events in my life. It has helped me tremendously being able to cope again and live a more stable average life. I just want to thank Recovery International, its founder Dr. Abraham Low for a sound, tried and tested self-help program that has improved the quality of my life.
