I Got My Life Back from Addiction

SL Narconon Graduate

Narconon has a unique approach to handling addiction and does not believe you have to be an addict for the rest of your life. The program works by addressing the physical, mental and emotional damage caused by long-term drug use, helping those who struggle with addiction to find the underlying issues that lead to their struggle with substance abuse.

Hundreds have done the program and started their new life. Here is what our most recent graduate had to say about her experience doing the Narconon program.

“On March 6, 2019, I arrived at Narconon, a meth addict who was struggling. My relationship with my family was dwindling. I was not in good shape physically or mentally. I knew I was on a path that would just get worse and worse. I didn’t like the person I had become; it just wasn’t me or my personality.

“I went through the withdrawal part of the program and was able to get through it without any real complications or discomforts. Although I was learning how to confront things in my life and be there in the moment, I was still a little iffy on changing my life.

“Then I got through it and started the sauna part of the program. After a few days, I started to feel good. I had more energy, I was calmer, and my mind got clearer. I also replenished all the nutrients the drug use depleted in my body and I could feel the vitamins were really helping.

“After the sauna detoxification, I went onto Objectives. There I learned how to live in the moment and not be stuck in the past. Confronting and being there, I was able to get out of my head and I had a lot less negative emotions and thoughts. I felt more in control and learned how to communicate better with those around me. I finally felt more like my old self before I used drugs.

“Then I moved to the life skills part of the program. I learned about how to recognize social and antisocial personalities. I was able to recognize I wasn’t a bad person. I learned that I value my family a lot. I learned to be ethical and make decisions that improved my life. These things will help me going forward to keep me from going down the same path that I once was on.

“It finally made sense as to why my family took the actions they did when I was out of control using dope, and why they got me to Narconon. I was honest about everything I had done and I felt relieved to have it off my shoulders.

“The biggest two things I got out of the program were that I finally figured out why I started using and continued to use drugs, and I learned the tools to rebuild the relationships in my life and make up the damage I had caused to those I love.”
