Growing up, I was a happy child, and I never got into trouble. I had a lot of friends, hobbies, and interests. I was active and had a full life ahead of me. Once I started to become addicted to alcohol, everything changed. My depression took a toll, and I felt totally lost. I felt like I was moving mountains every day just to function and get by. My life was a mess, and I did not know what to do or where to start. I became riddled with self-doubt and anxiety. My life eventually became drama-filled and quite chaotic. I destroyed nearly all my friendships and relationships. I quickly became a burden to those around me, and I no longer recognized myself. I tried to pull myself out of what I had gotten myself into, but I could not do it alone.

My parents got in touch with Narconon, and arriving here was a breath of fresh air. I was at a low point, but I now had people who could help me out of the hole I had dug myself into. The staff here were accommodating, extremely helpful and caring. They made me feel very comfortable being here. Some of the staff here have gone above and beyond to help me. They have guided me every step of the way, and I do not know what I would have done had I not come here. I am very grateful for making the decision to come to Narconon.

Doing this program, I truly learned so much about myself in such a short period of time. I learned some major, stable tools to navigate life with. These tools have stuck with me and became a part of how I operate daily. I am now able to cope with my problems instead of turning to the bottle, and it is a huge accomplishment to be able to say that. I have learned to think before I act or react, which I think is such a vital tool to sobriety.

This program changed my life and gave me a lot of insight. I have been able to strengthen my relationships with friends and family and continue to do so every day. Being here has taught me so much about how to live a sober life. The future finally looks brighter, and Narconon has given me the hope and strength I need to tackle life without alcohol. I am now looking forward to living a healthy, sober life.
