The Aims of PPR

 Our aim at PPR is twofold: First, we strive to prevent the unhealthy behavior which potentially leads to prison. The second aim is to support anyone currently in recovery.

P.P.R. believes sharing our testimony is the most effective means of preventing anyone from setting their feet in these institutions. Many behaviors that led us inside  these walls were early warning signs. We hope these behaviors can be caught and addressed early to avoid prison or worse, death. With every new inmae a broken family is left behind. With broken families the community suffers and must work harder to function.

Recovery is a paramount at P.P.R. All prisoners  at P.P.R. are in recovery in one form or another. P.P.R. works with all recovery groups; Drugs and alchohol, anger and violence, depression and suicide, bullying, and sexual abuse. We can relate with nearly every problem and can connect individuals with recovery programs. Our testimony clearly displays how far problems can progress if left untreated.

New testimonies are presented every month to our web site ( If you do not have Internet access, then write to us at one of the addresses below and ask to be put on our mailing list. Email or letters are encouraged because PPR is based on correspondence.

We learn as much from your input as you do from ours, so please email or write if our stories have affected you in any way.

Thank you.
