With a New Vision of Who I am, a Whole New Purpose!
I have had a lot of trauma on and off throughout my life. I was a bit wild and somewhat out of control. I always hung around older people and I dated older men. I started smoking pot and drinking alcohol at 17 years old. After starting that I became very rebellious and a whole lot more out of control. It became a living hell for my mom, my brother, and my sister. I could not be the parent I was supposed to be.
I missed a lot of important events, I made terrible choices with men, I lost some good friends, and I could not keep a consistent job. I felt like I had hit a very hard rock bottom. One night I fell asleep while drinking and on Xanex. I slept through an entire cigarette burning through several layers of skin. When I woke up the next morning, my pillow was melted through my mattress. I knew at that moment that I had to get help, or I was going to die.
I went online looking for rehabilitation centers and I came across the number for Narconon Suncoast and called them. The representatives helped me through each and everything I needed to handle so that I could get into treatment right away.
When I first got here, I was very nervous and scared. I cried a lot in the beginning. The staff welcomed me in such a sincere, genuine, and caring way. They eased my feelings with gentle and immense care as I was withdrawing. They reached out and listened to me when I was upset, and they understood me and what I was going through. They never walked away from me until anything I was going through was fully handled. I stayed because the staff here truly care about me and everyone that comes through this program. They rooted for me the entire way.
“I am finding who I truly am and learning to embrace myself, sober and comfortably. I have gotten so much closer to my family members throughout my program.”
I had nothing but win after win while I was here, even through the rough times, with every step of the program. I have learned that I can both tolerate and enjoy life without numbing myself with drugs and alcohol. I am finding who I truly am and learning to embrace myself, sober and comfortably. I have gotten so much closer to my family members throughout my program. I am very excited to be graduating and looking forward to learning so much more about myself and my capabilities.
I cannot wait to grow stronger bonds with my children, grandchildren, my nieces and nephews, my brothers, and my mom. I no longer have to make excuses for my life or miss any more important events. Having the support of the staff here when I leave means so much, knowing I can call when I am down or having a bad day and have someone to talk me through it.
I am really looking forward to building healthier and stronger relationships with my family, being reunited with my fur baby, Kuno, seeing life with a clearer vision and learning who I truly am with a whole new purpose in life. I am so very thankful to all the Narconon Suncoast staff, their support and encouraging words, and for this program.
