Rebuilding What Had Fallen Apart
In September 2021, when I arrived at Narconon Louisiana my life was falling apart. When I was using, I felt as if I was going to die and would dial 911 so I could quickly press call if something happened.
I had stopped doing everything I loved to do and was hurting my family daily. If I continued to use, I was going to die or at least lose my family. Going to Narconon on September 1st was the best decision I have ever made. It was the only decision I recently made that didn’t hurt my family. On that day, my life started getting better again.
I made it through withdrawal and then began the sauna detoxification. When I first started the sauna, I was not in a good condition mentally or physically. I was tired every day and had a hard time getting where I needed to be. I was sleeping twelve hours a night and still waking up exhausted. My body ached and I couldn’t exercise. During the sauna, I felt my body get better day by day. I started sleeping better; I had more energy and more motivation. Working out got my body in a much better physical condition. I feel mentally and physically ready for anything that came my way.
After that, I did Objectives and I was shocked with the benefits I got from doing them. About halfway through, I felt better and was calmer, more in the moment, and clear-headed. By the end of Objectives, I was truly shocked at how much better I felt. I learned and realized a lot about myself, and developed a better state of mind. I had fewer thoughts going on in my head, and had more clarity and more control of myself.
After that came Life Skills. At first, I didn’t think I needed it but realized that’s exactly what I needed. It was amazing to have someone help me with the way I see and think about things and also help me to look at why I was doing what I was doing. I could be honest with the things I’ve done wrong and not be judged, and I made a new life plan of how not to do those things anymore.
The staff at Narconon are outstanding and it’s honestly the best program I’ve ever been to. The few treatment centers before sent me running, and I didn’t feel comfortable there. I didn’t last but a few hours to a week at the other centers. At Narconon, you actually want to get up in the morning and keep bettering yourself, and they want to help you do so.
“Now that I have completed my program, I feel that I have a much better understanding of myself and how to control myself, and I have a new set of skills to apply to my life.”
Now that I have completed my program, I feel that I have a much better understanding of myself and how to control myself, and I have a new set of skills to apply to my life. I can’t thank everyone at Narconon enough. They truly saved my life!
