When I first came to Narconon Suncoast my life was in complete turmoil. I had made decisions in my life that I never thought I would make and I caused the people in my life a lot of problems, upset, and pain.
Before I came to Narconon Suncoast my life was on a steady decline. With the toxins in my body, I could not shake the urge to get high. I went through sauna and I can finally say I’m glad to get rid of all the toxins and the urges.
I had been a hopeless person for a long time, well over ten years. I had hit the ultimate rock bottom a few years ago but nothing changed in my world. I continued the same lifestyle of breaking the law, using any drug with no regard for others or myself. I had tried numerous times to get clean and I always ended up with the same results. I had to believe and have faith that I was capable and willing to do something different.
I really like Narconon Suncoast—this place has a different take on substance abuse than other treatment facilities I have attended or AA, in particular.
When I first came here to Narconon Suncoast, I was an emotional wreck although I was happy to take this step in recovery. I knew more than anyone that I needed it. The time in withdrawal prepared me for the big obstacle I knew would come to pass.
I’ve recently completed the Narconon Suncoast program and the wins and gains that I’ve had are extraordinary. I had successes in each part of the program and each built on the next.
Narconon Suncoast has changed my life forever. When I first got here, I was a complete mess. I thought my life was the exact life I wanted to live, but I couldn’t have been more wrong.
One of the main parts of the Narconon program are the Objectives. Objectives are cognitive exercises that help our students get through their past traumatic, bad experiences that continue to drive their addictions. It is our core belief that in order to live a productive, prosperous life a person must stay in the present and not have their attention on the terrible things that have happened to them.
Before I came to Narconon Suncoast , my life had fallen apart. I was strung out on heroin and crack . I had sold all of my belongings and destroyed every relationship I had with friends and family. I had been to multiple 12-step rehabs and given up completely on the idea of recovery.
I always knew I was tough, but everyone has a chink in their armor somewhere. I found how much I had out-casted myself during my addiction . Realizing through this program how close I was to becoming another statistic was, and still is, very haunting. My family found Narconon Suncoast .
