I Can Actually Make Something of My Life!

Throughout my whole life, I never had to deal with any real problems or responsibility. I always had someone to help me with the trouble I got into. I never faced any real danger. When I was 23 I got into a really bad car accident and I almost killed myself and two of my friends.

After the car accident I was sitting in my own head and never understood how this could happen to me. I never looked at what I did and what my responsibility was in the accident. After this incident I was given painkillers. I thought the drugs made all my problems disappear but they didn’t. Life was still going on all around me and I was stuck in the past, blaming other people for my problems. I kept on doing drugs and my life got worse and worse.

I lost everything.

I thought I was never going to get back to where I had been when I was successful. I stopped caring about everything and everyone. At first, I tried to hide my drug problem, but in the end, I didn’t care who knew about it. I eventually lost my job, my girlfriend and the respect of my loved ones.

At that point, I did what I knew best; drugs…and lots of them. I ended up overdosing and dying for 2 minutes. When I woke up I saw what damage my behavior had caused. My father was sad, my little brother was crying and my mother fainted on the hospital room floor.

I knew I needed some serious help. That’s when I came to Narconon.

When I got there I was stuck in my head and didn’t see what was going on around me. All I was seeing was what got me there. The staff and the program helped me with that. When they saw I was down and out, they helped me get out of my head and, day by day, I was able to see more of what was going on around me.

The sauna New Life Detoxification was great! It made all the cravings for the drugs go away and made me feel like I did before I did drugs. My favorite part of the program was all the one-on-one counseling. I was able to handle people in my life and handle my own problems for the first time ever! I then came to the realization that I caused my own problems and I figured out that I was more responsible than I gave myself credit for. I wouldn’t have gotten into that car accident if I would have actually dealt with my problems and expressed how I was feeling. I would have had an easier time in my life had I done that.

I now feel 100% confident that I can go home and be drug free and actually make something of my life!

This program has changed my life!
