Unique Utah recovery center celebrates first year

PROVO — Ryan Hymas’ family had his funeral planned and his casket picked out five years ago.

“I hit rock bottom,” Hymas explained. He had been addicted to heroin and alcohol for 16 years.

“It was 16 years of misery,” he said. “I just dreaded waking up. Every day the sun would come in, and it was just a nightmare every single day.

“And now I love waking up.”
