“Before doing the Narconon program, I was stuck in a deep, deep hole. I hated who I was and had no drive to be anything more than that…“
When I was 14 years old, I started using Ambien, Adavan, and Dilaudid and smoking weed to cover up the problems I was having at home. I was constantly getting into fights, doing badly in school, and doing anything to get attention at home.
My fellow students, what brought you here? Do you know? Let me tell you what I know. It wasn’t the drugs or the alcohol . Why are you here? Let me tell you what I know.
Is it my fault? Whether you’re the addict or a loved one, you’re probably asking yourself this question. The modern school of addiction teaches the addict that it is not his fault. He has a disease. Is this true? Old school philosophy is that it’s a choice and the addict lacks moral fiber.
I am so happy to have completed the Narconon program! I felt a lot better upon getting out of withdrawal and was able to have energy throughout the day. After completing sauna, I felt more energized, and my body wasn’t hurting me like it did when I was using.
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.
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.
“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.
