When one reaches a breaking point and is searching for help with an addiction, it is vital to find a place where one can grow and heal. I was broken and desperate for a new chance. I attended a 12-step in-patient program looking and begging for help.
Any parent feels pretty helpless when one’s child faces crises and pain. John is a middle-aged man with a good heart, great intellect, and a sense of humor. I knew that the choice of when and how to deal with his alcoholism had to be his. I am VERY grateful that John searched carefully connected with good people experienced a program which has been fine-tuned for decades and found the location where he and staff members could work together toward what he needed and wanted most—another chance to live a good and happy life.
Before I came to Narconon to pursue a drug-free life, I told my friends and family I would keep an open mind and really try. That was also a promise I made to myself even though I felt I was just going through the motions. I kept that promise—but not without help.
I’ve been battling drug addiction for the past 15 years. Coming to Narconon Arrowhead has been lifesaving. I came in sick, angry, regretful, and unhappy how my life was turning out. Now I’m confident, healthy, and so appreciative of this blessing of sobriety; being honest, speaking my mind, not invalidating my own view points, and being true to myself and loved ones.
When I first arrived at Narconon I went through withdrawal. Then, I went through the New Life Detox and got all the toxins out, which made me feel incredibly better. I felt alive for the first time in a while.
I would like to briefly give my thanks for the recent success I feel regarding the Objective portion of Narconon’s program. Objectives were tough but thanks to Les and Fio’s encouragement I persisted and was rewarded in several specific gains.
I put my sobriety first, and everything else falls into place for me…” Before Narconon , I never gave myself any time to focus and put myself first. This is the first time in my life that I can now do that. I know that I never have to be alone.
My parents did an intervention which was really hard for me because my drug use wasn’t exactly out in the open; however my parents had a good idea of what was going on. When I accepted the help, it really solidified the idea of having become an addict…
“For the last 15 years of my life, I have been fighting a losing battle with drug addiction. After going from treatment center to treatment center ten or so times, I didn’t feel like there was much hope left for me. I couldn’t envision a life clean from drugs where I was actually happy.“
I came to Narconon determined to attack and conquer the addiction that almost destroyed me. Without question, I am finally looking at my future with new eyes, perceiving with much better understanding of myself as a being and have opened my mind to endless possibilities of a new-found freedom and discoveries along the way.
