Nothing Is Impossible—The Word Itself Says “I’m Possible”
I was born in Colorado. I grew up in a good home and lived a simple life. But when high school came around, I didn’t fit in well. I started drinking a lot and getting in trouble. When I was 16 years old, I had my first child. After I graduated from high school, I had another child when I was 23 years old. At this point, I was in full-blown addiction with her father. We snorted pain pills and meth from time to time. By age 26, I had another child. After that, my husband and I got a divorce, and my meth addiction got much worse. At age 30, I lost my children. I stopped using pills and meth and switched to crack. The crack led to heroin, and I began injecting. At age 33, I was forced to move back home with my parents. I had lost everything.
I remember one night when I threatened my dad. I told him I wanted to kill him. He was done with me and called the police. After that, my parents found Narconon and got me here within days. When I arrived, I was extremely introverted... I thought everyone was out to get me and wanted to hurt me. I was paranoid and felt crazy. I tried to leave a few times, but the staff here worked with me and my family to get me through the rough patches and settle me down. They have special techniques to bring a person out of their past where they are stuck and bring them back into present time.
“Looking back on my time here, I have had many wins. The first was sticking through it and graduating… Realizing that I am going home and that my family is excited to have me is the biggest win of all.”
Looking back on my time here, I have had many wins. The first was sticking through it and graduating. Another is the ability to be sociable and hold a conversation with another person. Realizing that I am going home and that my family is excited to have me is the biggest win of all.
Narconon helped me find myself again—something I thought was impossible because I had been lost for so long. This program is worth it. It has saved my life. I now have the confidence to go home and build a new life, to hug my kids, and to build a future that I won’t need to escape from.
My advice to anyone struggling with addiction right now is to give Narconon a call. They will help get you here and help you get your life back. Stop struggling and get the help. Looking at my story, I see that nothing is impossible. In fact, the word itself says, “I’m possible.”
