My life used to be consumed by anger and self-medication. I was in and out of jail. I didn’t really think I would ever get better. I thought I would always be stuck where I was in life. I didn’t think I could ever confront or get over the things I had done.
“I would best describe my life before Narconon in one simple word, chaos. The dwindling spiral I was lost in had been an ongoing process of self-destruction for almost 10 years.

This is My Success Story. “I, like many young adults, did not have aspirations of becoming a drug addict. I was a normal, fun-loving kid and although my home life was not ideal, we made do with what we had. I was 14 when I started experimenting with drugs.
When I first arrived for treatment at Narconon , I was a wreck. I was scatterbrained, scared and numb. I started the sauna detoxification and was not sure of how it was supposed to help me. As time went on, I noticed I was starting to think and feel better . So apparently it worked.
“With the new mindset I have, I feel like anything is possible in my future. People can’t make me mad or bring my day down. I know what my goals are and what kind of person I want to be. The things I can’t control I can’t be mad at, we can only control ourselves.
Before I did the Narconon program, I felt broken and defeated. My life was out of control and I felt powerless to do anything about it. I am what is know as a “chronic relapser.“…
What I’ve learned from the Narconon program is that you have to make stuff happen. You have to want to better yourself and better the way you handle your life. I’m very happy with who I am and I’m very confident in my abilities. I can honestly say I love life .

and I Will Be Forever Grateful Aimless. Depressed. Selfish. Scared. Anxious. Paranoid. Worthless. Stuck. An utter disappointment to all who loved me. The above words described me to a “T” before I went to Narconon. My drug and alcohol addiction led me to a complete impasse in my life.
