When I first found out my daughter was using drugs, I knew I had to get her help right away. I had previously worked at a Narconon center myself and had some reality about how to help people who are addicted to drugs. However, when it comes to your own daughter, it is harder and more difficult.
When I arrived I was a mess! I was broken, nervous, probably looked terrible, but was willing to do whatever it takes to get off drugs. I had a really nice and warm welcome from staff and students. The student body seemed to have a lot of positive and good energy. And in the condition I was in at the time THEY HAD WHAT I WANTED AND HOPED TO BE LIKE THAT ONE DAY.
My uncle Chris and the Narconon program saved my life. I could be 6 feet under, instead, I get to live life and see my son grow up. I am just amazed every day and I thank God I am here because I could be dead.
Drugs basically got me in a place where I could not make the right decisions. I lost my wife, my 3 kids, my multi-million-dollar business. I lost it all.
What I would advise to those in active addiction now, is if you can find a little glimpse in your soul where you don’t want to go through this stuff anymore, just push through and get some help because doing it on your own does not work.
I reached a point where I lost everything. I totaled my car, I got kicked out of the house where I was living and was not consistent with paying the rent, I had chosen that drug and alcohol lifestyle over my family.
Although it is no longer making the headlines, another pandemic in America rages on. A pandemic made worse by COVID-19.
