Vietnam Vet’s Recovery Story

“I served in the US Army from May 1968 to May 1971. When I was discharged, I was suffering from major depression. I had to be hospitalized several times for crisis management and was under psychiatric treatment for year. After being admitted again to the mental hospital due to a suicide attempt in 2005, I was referred to Recovery International. I started to practice the method almost immediately and have stayed away from hospitals since. I have attended Recovery International meetings for almost three years now and feel that I am in control of my temper, and therefore, all the symptoms that result from it. My life has completely changed and people around me notice that I have become another person who reflects and transmits an inner peace that enables me to help my fellow patients and friends. My family is thankful to Recovery because our quality of life has improved greatly. “Recovery: Thanks from the bottom of my heart!” —Anonymous
