“The experience with Rhonda Lenair has changed my life dramatically and probably from the devastating and final results of alcoholism … a premature death. I knew for a long time I had a severe problem with alcohol and was actively looking for a way to deal with it. AA was not the answer for me personally and I was considering a “28 Day Program” and yet the cost of these treatment centers was making it financially prohibitive – the funds required up front as well as the time ($) missed from work. My dear friend, Lois, had been surfing the Internet when she tripped on to The Lenair Technique web site and shared it with me. I devoured every article, paragraph and word that I could locate about Rhonda Lenair and her technique.
The first of three appointments was scheduled for November 31, 2001, the day before my son’s wedding. Barry asked if I was sure that this date was indeed going to work for me. I assured him there was no time like the present because the addiction itself was never going to allow the right time. The grounds, the reception room and most of all Barry, gave me a great sense of warmth and tranquility.
Amazing!… Incredible!… Miraculous! It worked immediately and with the absence of the agonizing cravings. I do not know how and/or why The Lenair experience works but I am a walking tribute to this truth. I wish to sincerely thank Rhonda for her compassion, ability and desire to share with others this extraordinary gift which has been bestowed upon her by a greater power.
I am and remain sober,”
“Rhonda and Barry, I am finding it difficult to put into words a true thank you to you both. I feel more alive than I have in many years without the heavy burden of my addiction on my shoulders. I was so desperate to be free but I felt I could not face another rehab visit with another failure. I did not think I could make it through that again.
I wake up not hung over but smiling. I have not had a drink in six weeks – something I wondered if ever would be my life again. I am blessed to have found you and very grateful for your help.”
“I was drinking for the past 20 years. At the end it got out of hand. My mother was dying of cancer. That seemed to give me reason to really go for it. I was in a checkout lane in a grocery store, for some reason I picked up Elle magazine. I open it to the article about Rhonda Lenair. Mind you, I bought my wine and magazine. I called Barry and just my luck they had an opening. Well, I credit Rhonda with saving my life. I flew out to see her. And those days were painful, and I had to make up my mind that I wanted this disease behind me. For the past 20 years I could only think when my next drink would be. I was consumed. Rhonda has freed me and now I’m enjoying my life. God Bless Rhonda Lenair.”
“I had been fighting alcoholism and its destructive impact on my life for over 21 years. I had tried AA, rehab and various other forms of treatment with no success. After the first treatment with Rhonda my craving for alcohol disappeared completely. I haven’t had, nor wanted to have, a drink since. I am in control of my life again. I don’t know how she does it but the effect was immediate and I expect permanent. Rhonda is a gifted healer and I am thankful that she has shared her gift with me.
I have been alcohol-free for a little over 8 months (my longest). My grandfather, who was like my Dad, died on 12/29/01 and I was able to get through the grief without drinking. Also, I was able to give the Eulogy. I was able to tell him before he died that I would be okay and I stopped drinking. Thank you for giving me my life back. If I can be of any help, please let me know.”
Dear Rhonda and Barry: Well, it is now going on one year and 3 months that I have been sober. I would not be sober today if it was not for you. You have saved my life and I now realize how wonderful life can be being sober. I am now in my senior year of nursing, I have maintained a 3.5 GPA and was named to the Dean’s list. Geoff and I were married. None of this would have happened if I was still drinking. I can never repay you for what you have done for me. However, by working in the health industry I have been able to share my story with my nursing class. Every day I am sober is a testimony to your ability to truly help alcoholics. If I can be of further assistance by sharing my story, please contact me. Thank you for giving me my life back!
Just a note to thank you again for your help. It has been another year and I am still not smoking or drinking. Thank you!
Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year.”
D. Turner, Florida
“During the past twenty-five years I have struggled with binge drinking, have been admitted to four treatment centers and have sought out every avenue of treatment I could discover with no lasting resolution. Over six months ago I was treated by Rhonda and have not had any compulsive craving for alcohol since her hands-on treatment.”
Successfully escaped NYC without a cigarette or beer and now back to real life in VT. Having quit heroin, coke and speed decades ago by myself and still never being able to quit cigarettes, I just figured there was no possibility of being without those nasty things. If I ever thought I could’ve quit them, it certainly wouldn’t have been during the “hell months” during which my schedule changes abruptly from rural autumnal splendor to winter in the capital of too-much-too-fast.
You both made me feel so comfortable before, during, and after the process that it almost didn’t seem possible afterwards that anything dramatic had taken place – but obviously it did.
Without pages of telling you what you already heard from 15,000 people I just wanted to say that I’m O.K., truly grateful that there are folks like you and that I was fortunate enough to be able to be around when you happened.
Stay well and thanks again, Love,”
M. Long, Colorado
“My life revolved around drinking. My father was an alcoholic, my mother is an alcoholic and I am an alcoholic. Rhonda’s gentle technique gave me the opportunity to stop drinking once and for all. Now, I don’t have any desire to drink. I can honestly say that I feel free from my private hell. I would recommend Rhonda without any hesitation. Thank you for this gift.”
“Dear Rhonda and Barry,
Thank you for your concern about my sobriety. I found a quote from “The Kitchen God’s Wife” by Amy Tan that describes how I am feeling about myself and my new sober life. “I felt the danger, that this was how you love someone, one person letting out fears, the other drawing closer to soothe the pain. And then more would pour out, everything that has been hidden, more and more – sorrow, shame, loneliness, all the old aches, so much released until you overflowed with joy to be rid of it, until it was too late to stop this new joy from taking over your heart.”
I’ve always felt that I am two Sheryls. The one that drinks and doesn’t care and the one that wants to love the Sheryl that doesn’t care, allowing her to love me in return so we can be whole and healthy in this beautiful life we’ve been given.
On a more light and funny note, I also wanted to share another quote by Mae West. “If I had to choose between two evils, I’d choose the one I haven’t tried.” I know I’m feeling better and like my old sober self when I begin to feel like this! I hope this holiday finds you both healthy and happy with each other.
“I had known for a while that I had a problem with alcohol, but considered myself functional because I was a successful teacher, would never even consider drinking on the job, and had an adequate social life. It was when one of my students pointed out that I smelled like beer, which was from the night before and had relatively drank little, that I started researching.
I knew that traditional 12-step programs and rehab clinics would never work and the success rate of those weren’t even worth my effort. I read about The Lenair experience and the effectiveness and called, set up the dates, and got a friend to join me. During the sessions alcohol was initially addressed but health issues were then emphasized as far as things to watch out for and nutritional advice to implement. It has been over a month now and I still do not want a drink or even see myself drinking. This includes being at neighborhood pubs, on the beach, or relaxing after work. I do get bored, but do not see drinking as an option to alleviate this feeling.”
“Dear Rhonda and Barry, Thank you, Thank you!! A thousand times Thank you. I was blessed to meet you both the week of December 10th, 2001. Before I met with Ms. Lenair, alcohol had a real “hold” on me. Each and every day I would have my 6 pack and a few shots of tequila after work. The weekends were really “drink” days, all day. Not any more. I feel wonderful, I look better, and I lost 10 pounds, without even trying.
There are no words to express how good I feel to be “FREE”, really free from the desire of alcohol. When I returned home to Seattle my husband would look at me with disbelief. “You really don’t want a drink?”, he would ask. I answered “no” each time. I really, really do not want a drink.
I followed up with all of your recommendations for health checks, something I have not done in years, and I am relieved to say all is well.
I love you Rhonda, you are a Blessing from God!
The journey from Seattle, Washington to Newbury, MA was the paramount journey of my life. I will keep in touch, let you know how I’m doing with your nutritional recommendations, and I will call to schedule a telephone follow-up in April or May.
“Hi Rhonda and Barry. Well, thanks to you, it’s been over a month since I’ve had a drink and even the desire to have one! I returned home wondering and worrying how my life would be, but after a few short anxious moments the wonder and worry was gone. I was able to return to my old and loved routine of getting up at the crack of dawn and going to the gym for a decent workout. Attending social functions without drinking was a concern, yet once there it was not only easy to abstain, but enjoyable to be a SOBER social butterfly who was able to stay out late, remember the evening and still get up early to address the next day’s schedule.
I am forever grateful to Jaqi for sharing her experience with you, and to you both for helping a man in need. Can’t wait to learn from Jaqi of Julie’s experience with you in a few short days! I’ll continue to keep you posted.
Thank you, for I feel I once again have control of my life! All the best,”
“Dear Rhonda and Barry,
It’s been over five months since our visit. I would have thought by now that the words to express my gratitude would have found me. That not being the case, I will speak from my heart in hope that you will feel my love and appreciation.
It was as if on September 7th you crept within my being with your gentle touch and soft voice and removed the blocks to my inner light. I have never before experienced such a profound transformation. For years I had been praying for release from the agonizing desire to drink. I had tried all of the traditional methods, AA, books, seminars, counselors, all to no avail. There is so much we have yet to know about the human body, mind and spirit and energy system. I had begun to think that maybe I was somehow damaged beyond repair. I was beginning to loose hope for a cure to a disease which I knew would surely kill me and possibly others. But I still had my prayers, and when I read about your work my instincts told me that this might be the answer. I didn’t know how I would afford it but also knew that my life couldn’t be measured in monetary value. When I prayed for an answer I knew God would also provide the means.
My life has taken a dramatic turn down a wonderful new path. The desire to drink is gone, I have lost almost twenty pounds and have a wonderful new career which serves our community and fills my heart.
It’s not that my path no longer contains any bumps in the road. It’s just that the navigation of these bumps is met with a greater confidence and unshakable faith in the guidance of the path I travel. I’ll always remember with love and gratitude the part you played in bringing me to this new life, Rhonda. I now know how the newly emerged butterfly must feel.”
N. Essien, Washington, D.C.
This is to thank you for your cordial reception and truly gifted help. I came to you for a known issue which at this time is now a non-issue. But moreover, I also came to confirm for myself a divine matter, which I did not make known to you and you tapped into it accurately and this has comforted and inspired me more. I am following your recommendations. The mention of my friend’s prior breast cancer hundreds of miles away is proof of God’s wonderful work through you. You are truly blessed.
“I was sober for over five years when I visited Rhonda Lenair. Although I had maintained a flawless recovery in the way of not picking up a drink, I was suffering from the feelings of wanting to drink. The final straw came when my wife booked a 7-day cruise and all I could think about was drinking!! Not knowing what to do and tired of the program I was working, I called Rhonda Lenair from a referral from a good friend. I don’t know how I can ever explain how Rhonda changed my life within a few minutes however I try, and can only hope that Rhonda continues her gift of healing.
Thank you Rhonda with all my heart.”
“P.S. I just returned from a 7-day cruise and it was the best vacation of my life!!!”
B. Russell, Massachusetts
“Dear Rhonda, thanks so very much for helping me to stop using alcohol abusively. I cannot express my sincere gratitude. I’m looking forward to my next session.
Thank you again,”
One week ago today, I went to your office with my very good friend Leigh. When we left your office – Leigh appeared to be the same. However, when we got out to her car, she told me she wanted to go somewhere for a cup of tea. I said that I’d love to (but I was wondering to myself that I never knew Leigh drank tea) and so I didn’t ask until we were sitting on the deck of this restaurant an hour or so later sipping on our second cup of tea. She then told me that she didn’t drink tea but that she wanted tea and it was just great. Also, there were people all around us drinking alcohol which Leigh had been addicted to for close to 18 years and yet she seemed indifferent towards it.
Then after dinner she wanted to go get ice cream (I’m always the one who wants something sweet, not Leigh). The thing that I noticed right away in Leigh is that she seemed to do these things “as if” it’s all she ever did anyway!
It has been such a joy to see her over the past week – Not hung over, not driving drunk, not slurring her words, not passing out, not being able to remember what she did or said the night before, not having a panic attack AND INSTEAD seeing her looking radiant, feeling comfortable and more relaxed than she has in years, and without the desire to drink alcohol. What you have done with your treatment has changed my friend and ultimately her life!
Thank you for your dedication to use your incredible gifts on people who suffer every day from one addiction or another.
In love and light and knowingness … all things are possible.”
Wishes to remain anonymous
I am so deeply in awe of the results it is hard to describe how I feel, except to say for me it is a miracle. There is no overwhelming, uncontrollable need to drink. I am healing physically and more importantly, emotionally from more than twenty years of alcohol abuse.”
“I am so deeply thankful that the “Universe” sent me Rhonda. Thanks to her I have my life back again, which I lost many, many years ago due to the entanglement with alcohol addiction.
I waited many months to write this testimonial because I still did not trust that her method would stick with me. I not only had the doubt about her method, but most of all, I did not trust myself because I had quit about three times in the past to no avail.
After I left the center and returned to Seattle, I was faced with every challenge an alcoholic could face, I could not understand why the “Universe” would allow all of this to happen to me since I was really trying to turn my life around. But to my surprise, I was able to handle each and everyone of those challenges with ease, it was as if a veil was covering my perception as I gazed upon the alcohol, even while pouring wine and making drinks at XMAS and other occasion, asking people how the drinks tasted and to enjoy. WHAT A MIRACLE! In the past I would have grabbed the bottle and forget the other people, they would be on their own. ‘WHAT A MIRACLE!”
Now my favorite drink is good WATER and believe it or not I am actually a ‘TEA TOTTLER’ yes, never thought I would succumb to that, but I love to try different teas and make them hot or ice tea with stevia (natural sugar sub) Love it! ‘WHAT A MIRACLE!”
Again from the depths of my soul, I thank the “Universe” for beautiful people like Rhonda, oh yes, and Barry too!
