Our Story

New Experience Recovery emerged from the personal journey of our founder, Ryan Aiumu, a recovery addict/alcoholic. Having battled with substance abuse from a young age, Ryan’s personal transformation serves as an inspiration to many. He joined the Marine Corps in a bid to escape addiction, but ultimately realized that the answer lay in seeking help and committing to recovery. His experiences molded him into a compassionate leader who understands the struggles of addiction firsthand, making him uniquely positioned to help others on their journey to recovery.

Ryan’s personal commitment to his clients’ well-being is a defining characteristic of New Experience Recovery. He is present daily, ensuring every client feels seen, heard, and valued—never just a number. His hands-on approach fosters a family-like atmosphere where clients feel part of a supportive community that understands their journey.

Our ultimate goal is to empower our clients to achieve lasting recovery and become positive, contributing members of society. We strive to create a nurturing space where every individual can feel supported, connected, and cared for, fostering a culture of inclusivity, dignity, and respect.

Ryan Aiumu

Owner & CEO

Ryan understands recovery. At a young age, he entered the world of drugs and alcohol and knew he needed to do something different. So, he joined the Marine Corps to get away, better himself, and serve his country. Unfortunately, this did not solve his problem with substances and had to accept that he needed help. It was through a good program, consistent treatment, and a welcoming community supporting him that he was able to lead a healthy life of lasting sobriety. His experiences and the people who helped him in his recovery has motivated him to give back. He continues daily to aid others struggling just as he once did by leading by example and offering a new experience for any and all to recover.
