A New Outlook on Life

Adjusting to sobriety can be very difficult at times, especially in the beginning. Often times people want to give up because it is not an easy thing to do. Because of this, the staff at Narconon work very hard at encouraging people to stick things out and work through the uncomfortable phases of recovery. We know what is at stake, and that is why we do not give up on people. When people are able to work through the difficult parts of their recovery, they become stronger and often gain a new perspective on life that may not have otherwise been possible.

“This program was very tough for me at first. Withdrawal was very tough for me to get through, the nine days I spent in withdrawal were some of the toughest I had in a long time, but I got through it. Then sauna started off slow, but about halfway through I started getting my energy back and feeling human again. Getting through sauna was a huge win for me as well. Then completing the Life Skills courses and the Objectives has given me the skills that will serve me the rest of my life. I have met some lifelong friends and I am so excited for the future. This program has given me such a new outlook on life.”
