Being a Fighter, Not a Quitter

Chris S. Narconon Colorado graduate

It takes a lot of courage and strength to make the decision to overcome an addiction. Anyone who has been through this process can tell you that it can be difficult at times but the things that are gained make it worth it. True recovery must be earned, and it is a beautiful thing.

“Choosing to quit my opiate addiction did not mean I was a quitter, it meant that I was a fighter. Thanks to Narconon Colorado's dedication and willingness to help even after I left, I no longer think about opiates. I have gained the trust of friends and family that I had previously destroyed due to opiate use and no words can do justice, the gratitude I have for Narconon for the life they have given back to me.”
