Putting My Dark Past behind Me

Man is walking toward sun.

I received a lot of benefits from the Narconon program. I came for alcohol abuse and went directly to the withdrawal unit. I had a short stay there because I was clean when I came in, however I recognized the importance of this step to observe me for a couple of days and check my medical condition.

The sauna program I did was beneficial. Exercise and sweating out the toxins in my body relaxed me and after completing the sauna program I was sleeping much better. It also helped my anxiety and I felt I no longer needed the anxiety medication I had been taking for a few years.

Objectives mostly taught me patience for completing long, repetitive tasks. It allowed me to stop thinking about the past all the time and live in the present moment. It also taught me how to decide for myself how to confront people and handle situations. It also taught me how to handle other people in my life.

Ethics allowed me to reach back into my past and confront all the bad things I had done to other people and things in my life. Admitting them and putting them behind me gave me great relief. Next, I handled my family members and made things right with them. I learned how to successfully confront the conditions I face in life and how to deal with them. That way, I can get things back to normal in my life.

The sauna, Objectives, and life skills parts of the program have broken my alcohol addiction and taught me how to deal with future events without turning to alcohol as a solution. The entire program, along with abstinence from drinking, has set me on a path to enter back into life and function as a normal, productive member of society.

“In the ethics portion of the program, they gave me very good advice that I can use for the rest of my life.”

The Narconon staff are great people who care about their students’ success and I can’t say enough good things about them. The excellence of the staff contributes so much to the success of the program. In the ethics portion of the program, they gave me very good advice that I can use for the rest of my life.

The Narconon program was excellent overall and I understand why the success rate is so high. I would definitely recommend this program to others who need to break their addiction.
