Rev’d Paul Linley started the charity in 2011 in Hull, with only one client. It soon grow fast over the coming weeks and six years later we have been able to assist over 800 people suffering with addictions.
Over the last few years RHM have been able to plant recovery centres across the UK in partnership with various organisations and churches and train individuals to teach Christian recovery and this continues to gain momentum in 2018.
Our purpose as a charity is to enable people to make informed choices concerning their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being, in a way which reflects our belief in unconditional acceptance in order to:
Actively empower individuals
Encourage their sense of self worth
Help them realise their full potential
We do this through appropriate and feasible feedback and sustained contact with other professionals.
RHM Recovery is a value driven organisation, originating from Christian perspective and believing in no compromise on hope for people’s lives no matter what their situation.
We pride ourselves on our ethos of compassion, care, creativity and integrity in all areas of work.
The cycle of addiction is problematic and can last for decades, harming families and communities. Our experience in the addiction recovery sector, of some 20 years, is that the alternatives tend to deal with the only the symptoms of addiction and not the root causes.
For maintained recovery, long-term healing must come to the heart of a person, so we aim to provide the necessary classes and courses that will get to the root of the problems…Rejection, Abuse, Abandonment, Trauma, Loss etc. We endeavour to provide a non-judgemental environment for anyone that seeks out our help at any one of our locations across the UK.
