When I arrived at Narconon I was drunk, had taken Xanax and the previous month was a huge blur. Despite having been working, bought a new car, made some big life changes, all of those things, the truth was I was going through the motions and not actually living them.
I arrived and went straight into withdrawal and I was a mess. I was missing my dog so much I was crying and also had sadness and anxiety. I thought it was impossible to come off alcohol and I didn’t think life was possible without anxiety or meds to help me. It was achievable and I have been without meds for some time now, that alone is huge for me! The staff was incredible and several days after arriving, I felt 100% better.
“Being able to think with a clear head and mindfulness is what I enjoyed the most.”
Then I went onto the sauna detox and after a few days of doing the sauna detox, I started to sleep well and felt great. Being able to think with a clear head and mindfulness is what I enjoyed the most.
Then I went onto exercises that got me into the present and everything was easier for me. I never realized I was not in present time but stuck in the past. I could now hear the birds chirping, the motorcycles on the road, the sounds of the cars and much more. I had never noticed some of these sounds before, but now I could. I stopped worrying about the past and looked towards the future.
The staff were with me all the way through, they were a steady rock by my side to get me through the program. I appreciate all of the very honest and direct conversations with the staff and students. I would not have made it through the program without all the support of the staff. They were so genuine that nothing could come close to their support.
