After a drug addict has been using for a while, his body may reach a very bad physical condition. In some cases, the addict may even be close to death although his body may be too anesthetized by the addictive substance that he can't feel the pain.
My time and experience here at Narconon have been a success I have learned a great deal about myself. I have been able to fix me. Getting to the root of my problems. Now I need not nor want to drink and will not.
How many times have you told yourself, “This is the last time”? You lie in bed planning, going back and forth with your inner monologue, hatching out a scheme to end this drug use for good. It usually consists of scoring one last time and “rationing” out your drugs so you won’t get sick.
When I first arrived at Narconon and began the withdrawal step, I felt hopeless and completely broken on the inside. But after 7 days of vitamins, rest and a nutritious diet I was ready and very curious about the sauna . I was skeptical at first but then I was quickly amazed.
Imagine waking up to what sounds like a tornado warning or amber alert coming from your phone. This time though it is a warning that fentanyl is killing people in your community. In order to prevent more deaths from drug overdose, students in Baltimore have done just that.
One of the biggest frustrations for families of an addict who is killing themselves with drugs is that there is no way to force them into treatment. While this is true in almost all states, many states are considering doing what Kentucky already put in place.
It is easy to spot someone who is an addict when they are entrenched in their addiction. That is not always the case with some addicts though. Many addicts maintain semi-normal and even productive lives. Going to work, school, and even raising kids as terrifying as that might sound.
“Let me start by saying that before I came to Narconon Louisiana I would never have thought I would be anything other than a menace to society. I thought I was invincible and nothing could stop me from doing what I wanted and getting what I wanted.
At first, I honestly didn’t want to go into treatment. I never wanted help and thought I was going to be a drug addict until the day I died. I figured my parents would eventually bury me since I was a terribly bad meth addict for a lot of years.
I started using drugs when I was 13. It progressed to the use of heroin and cocaine and then I got on a methadone program. I did not use the program in the way it was intended because I was still using other drugs.
