“Repairing the Damage I Caused”
When I arrived at Narconon Louisiana mid-January 2020, I was in a dark place; strung out on meth and on the verge of losing everything.
With what courage I had left, I went into detox and started to go through the withdrawals. Taking vitamins and doing exercises helped me keep my mind in the present. After a few days of rest, I began to come back to reality and regain my confidence.
After withdrawal, I started the sauna portion of the program and it went very smoothly. I was clearing my mind and body and within twenty-five days, I felt like a brand new person. I regained my sense of taste and smell, and felt like an entirely normal person, ready to operate at full capacity.
I then immediately dove into the objective processes. Throughout them, I had many wins and gains. I realized I am no longer an individual who needs drugs to numb myself and block out my problems. I created my own hell, and I am now creating my own new beautiful life.
After I completed the objectives, I moved on to the ups and downs course. This course gave me the knowledge of how to decipher between the good and bad people in my life. My biggest win throughout this course was realizing I was no longer a bad person myself.
Shortly after this, I started the personal values and integrity course. I gained a better understanding of how to survive in life by understanding ethics, morals, justice, and honesty. All these factors combined gave me the ability to be able to experience anything and live a happy life.
Continuing forward at full capacity, I started the conditions course. The only constant in my life has been “change,” and throughout this course, I took a more in-depth look at each part of my life, what condition my life was in, my relationships with my family, and how I acted towards others. I realized how badly I had damaged every part of my life and began working out what I had to do to begin to fix it. I buckled down and started repairing the damage I caused to myself, my son, the rest of my family, and the other groups I was a part of.
“Within a couple of weeks, I was back in touch with myself, my son, and most importantly, the people in my life who are sober and healthy, which I am proud to say I feel part of that group again.”

Thank you to my parents and to Narconon for giving me the support and tools needed for a happy and successful life.
