The Narconon Program has fully transformed my perspective and hope for a new life free from the shackles of drug addiction. Narconon has helped foster in me a strength of independence and resolve for success that will prove invaluable to me as I move forward to confront the difficulties throughout the rest of my life.
I still remember coming out of withdrawal and cracking jokes with other students and it was the first time in years that I had laughed completely sober and that’s when I knew I was going to be okay. Narconon has given me the skills I need to be able to handle the situations in life that brought me down and caused me to dig deep into my mind to find out what caused me to be an addict in the first place.
At Narconon Suncoast the New Life Detoxification is a vital step in the road to recovery. For years on end I was in and out of rehabs wondering why I kept failing. It’s only in hindsight that I realize one of the biggest obstacles I had in my way was that I kept trying to make major lifestyle changes while I still felt mentally and physically beaten down by drug and alcohol abuse.
Let me start by telling you something about my life before I went to Narconon Suncoast. I am going to be brutally honest about this, I was as close to a degenerate as one can be.
When I was thirteen all I ever wanted to be was a touring musician and live my life on the road. I had the most supportive family I could ask for regarding me pursuing my dream. I come from a family of musicians, my father was the singer in a hair metal band and my mother sang in the choir for high school and college, so naturally, I was born to play music and I wanted to take it as far as I possibly could.
Having completed the Narconon Program, I feel great knowing I now have the patience needed in all aspects of my life. Having gained control back of my life, I can be confident in my environment.
This program saved my life, and I have so much less stress because of it. Only an addict can know the unneeded amounts of stress and the worrying that drug abuse can cause, and I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders…
When I came to Narconon, I felt broken and hopeless, but eager for any help I could get. After a couple of days in the Withdrawal portion of the program, I started feeling better with the help of the vitamins, doing locationals, and receiving assists. The staff had a lot of good folks with me, which inspired me to get through it.
When I came to Narconon, I was in bad shape, both physically and mentally. After completing the withdrawal part of the program, I began to feel better. That is when I did the Sauna, where each day I started feeling better and better and more like myself again…
At the beginning of July 2018, I searched for a treatment center. I was tired of being put on psych meds that I had been struggling with. I was tired of still craving drugs and relapsing.
