Recent graduates share their stories of overcoming addiction and starting a new path in life.
Before drugs, I was a lost soul whose life revolved around drugs. I lost a lot of things, from my family to my possessions and home. I came to Narconon to get help with my addiction with the help of my mother. I was very iffy being here.
Takes a lot of hard work and dedication. It isn’t always an easy road but it is well worth the effort. It is amazing how much can change in the course of a year when a person really puts their mind to it.
In my journey through the Narconon program, I have achieved tremendous success at this facility. I started out rough and rebellious, it took a few staff to coach me in the doors. The dedication that they had shown in that very moment amazed me.
Getting through an addiction treatment program takes a lot of hard work, self-reflection, and dedication. Some days are more difficult than others but when done correctly, the end results are well worth the time and effort.
My life before drugs was amazing and very memorable. I loved, I lived, and I laughed. Then I started using drugs and I lost more than I could ever imagine. I lost my ability to live a full life. I felt nothing and I was always sick, I lost my pride and any ability to feel.
At Narconon Colorado, we know that each person is different and that there is no such thing as “one size fits all” when it comes to what is needed for the length of treatment. That is why our philosophy is “It takes as long as it takes.”
Before coming to Narconon my life was in liability. I was drinking heavily on a day-in and day-out basis. I spent twenty-three years of my life hiding behind a bottle. I used every excuse to drink. If I couldn’t find an excuse, I would drink anyway…
Recent graduate Troy shares some of his personal accomplishments upon completion of his Narconon Program.
Before coming to rehab I was lost and in pain. My perspective on life was short-term and broken. I focused on immediate gratification instead of laying long-term plans. I did not put in the energy and time to lay a solid foundation for my future but instead sought to end my life.
