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 .
I started using drugs when I was 14 years old. By the time I was 29, I was using heroin daily. I thought heroin would take my life and leave my son without a mother. Thankfully, my mom found this amazing program called Narconon Suncoast.
I was at the lowest point in my life. I had a sports injury at 32 years old. I went through 7 knee surgeries and I quickly realized that the pain medicine I was prescribed by my doctor numbed not only the physical pain, but my emotional pain as well.
I was addicted to pharmaceutical drugs and marijuana for many years. Before everything fell apart, I tried Meth for the first time and found myself in rehab within a few weeks. I had been addicted to Suboxone , Adderall , Gabapentin and Clonezepam .
