Recovered Living NZ offers their services at a true cost point however we recognize that world class eating disorder care comes at a price most New Zealanders are unable to afford.  

The Recovered Living NZ Charitable Trust exists to help offset the cost of Recovered Living NZ services, making recovery more affordable, for more New Zealanders.

Kristie Amadio

Board Member

 Kristie serves on the Recovered Living Charitable Trust Board, connecting the aims of the Trust with the practicalities of the RLNZ program.

Formerly an elite athlete, Kristie now enjoys riding horses, white water kayaking, and playing squash.

 'It was only 8 years ago I sat in Residential treatment in America, immediately stunned by the quality of the program and expertise of the staff.

I remember thinking to myself, 'When I get better, I will bring this back home'. I didn't think that would actually happen. Yet my own recovery, thousands of others recoveries, and Recovered Living NZ, is proof that with determination and bold work, magic really does happen.'
