The Best Gift I Could Give Myself

The Objectives and Life Skills courses at Narconon Suncoast are some of the most crucial parts of our core drug rehabilitation curriculum. After our students have handled their physical addiction to drugs and address the residual drug toxins in the New Life Detoxification, the Objectives and Life Skills are used to handle both the mental and emotional aspects of addiction and the core root of what’s been driving an addict back to drugs over and over again.

The Objectives help a person get their attention off their past and off all of their negative experiences and finally put it to rest and move forward, bringing their awareness to the “here and now.” The Life Skills courses were developed in such a way to help a person go through every part of their life and dig deep to find the real, core reasons they turned to drugs as a solution to their problems.

Here is one of the most recent success stories to come out of our Objectives and Life Skills courses:

I’ve had a lot of gains this week through Life Skills and Objectives. Going through some of it was not easy for sure, but it was definitely worth it. I feel less spun out by everything and everyone around me and I feel way more focused on what actually matters. Something I learned is that I tended to make my life more complicated than it needed to be by over-thinking, over-analyzing, and getting stuck on almost every little thing. I was adding all this emotional charge to it all by thinking about my past and worrying about my future. Life Skills has helped me realize how my thoughts, decisions, and actions were bringing destruction to my life which allowed me to see what I needed to do to improve my overall condition in life. Objectives brought me into present time and allowed me to finally move forward and be the person I was meant to be.
