A major contributing factor to my newfound stability is learning to confront another person or situation while in this program. To master that has been the key mastery of self. Born of a different walk of life I would have been doomed to an existence of “social anxiety.”
Finally, after 13 years, I get to live my life. I am worth living a sober, happy life. To me everyone who struggles is worth that. I am excited to feel like an actual adult, and a productive person in society.
My time in the life skills portion of the program was the most valuable part of the program for me. I was able to get my trauma and past wrongdoings out on paper and feel a release I have never felt before. The things I have learned here at Narconon Suncoast are essential to my continued recovery.
I started this program and immediately started to see the benefits. Instead of just getting me off drugs, it actually allowed me to figure out why I was on drugs in the first place and make decisions objectively that will stick with me for the rest of my life.
I get to see first-hand as people rebuild themselves. Being able to witness these transformations as things start to fall back in place for them is the most rewarding experience I can think of and the best place possible to call my job.
I was able to re-establish communication with the people I love and respect and want to be surrounded by. I can confidently move forward with my life, clean and sober, and can say I am happy with myself and about life again.
When I first used drugs 10 years ago, I had nice things, a beautiful wife, and two children that I provided for. I thought drugs would be the answer for my perceived problems in life, but before long, drugs controlled my life.
I can proudly say for the first time since I was 14 years old, I am completely drug and alcohol free. I feel extremely accomplished and am beyond grateful for the Narconon family.
I came back to work at Narconon not only because I knew the program could save lives and I wanted to help do that, but I also came back to work at Narconon because I wanted to continue to enhance those skills that I learned. I wanted to continue to grow from the teachings and keep them fresh in my life.
My new drug-free and stable life awaits, and I feel so far removed from the lost feeling I had before I came. I am excited to reconnect with my family, my work, and my life again.
