We could all use a little good news, given the current circumstances with the Coronavirus. Every time I turn on the television or look at my social media, it seems like all I hear about is record-breaking deaths, the pandemic getting worse, or just a litany of bad news. It’s easy to stay focused on all the negative in the world, considering that’s almost all any of us hear about these days.

For many, addiction has almost gone by the wayside since the whole Coronavirus problem started. Most of the country’s attention went off the addiction crisis as every major news outlet started covering the health crisis. Meanwhile, addiction hasn’t stopped. Quite conversely, it’s either remained the same or gotten a little worse. With much of the world in crisis, addicts across the world have been experiencing a new level of stress, anxiety, and fear with the Coronavirus. It’s an unseen enemy everyone is trying to avoid. Add that stress on top of being addicted to drugs, and it’s a recipe for disaster.

Luckily, in the dense fog of bad news there is light, and that light are the success stories happening in treatment centers who are helping to get people clean, off drugs, and assist them to fix their lives.

Here is one of Narconon Colorado’s most recent success stories:

“I have gained so much out of my entire Narconon program. When I first arrived, I was unable to confront a lot of my issues with myself, family, and loved ones. But now, I can. I can handle my emotions, actions, and behaviors in a positive manner. I was welcomed to Narconon as a family and now they are my family. I no longer worry about what happened in the past or what my future may hold. I stay in the here and now, only focusing on what I do right now, in this very moment. Training drills taught me how to have better communications skills and control, which is an amazing skill I’ve implemented in all areas of my life. Objectives taught me to think outward and not to have worry or concern over the past. The Life Skills courses taught me an amazing way to analyze all people in my life or who may want to eventually be a part of my life and figure out whether or not I should keep them in my life. I also got to confront all my negative past actions from all areas of my life without being judged or criticized. I am the happiest I have ever been in my life and can now utilize all the tech I’ve learned to live a healthy, positive, drug-free life and contributing member of society.

Thanks to Narconon Colorado, I feel like I got a second chance at life and I could not be more grateful for that. I am also getting a chance to repair all the damage I caused and finally move forward, leaving my addiction in the past.“
