“I’m Going to Show the World What I’m Made Of!”

A recent Graduate details what drove him into addiction and how the Narconon Suncoast program helped him find his true self:

You can achieve sobriety

     “Before coming to Narconon Suncoast, I was using opiates for a total of 4 years. During my last 2 years of college I was using mostly painkillers but I was still able to manage to graduate and get my degree. I wasn’t concerned about anything at all. I thought I would have everything in my life fall into place; find a great job and move on into the real world. My main issue was that I thought all that would come easily. I did not prepare for the challenges and hardship to come. Having high expectations for myself and not seeing it fall into place made me crumble. I was doubting my own abilities and to cope with the idea of being a failure, I continued to abuse opiates.

When I was going through the Narconon program, I discovered my fear of failing and the reasons behind it. The reasons are my lack of self-confidence and self-respect. While at Narconon Suncoast, I was able to free myself from the mental prison that was created by drugs. After clearing my mind, I was able to realize more of who I am as a person and my own talents. Now I am driven and going to achieve my goals 100%. I am proud of myself for completing the Narconon program but I know that isn’t even half the battle. The real challenge is what I do out in the real world. I am ready for what lies ahead and Igoing to show the world what I am made of!”
