Drug Rehab Success Among Chaos
Successes happen in addiction recovery every day. Even though we are living through some historic, dismal times, it is important that we shift gears every so often and look at the wins people are having as they get their lives back together.
Narconon Colorado has been active throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, getting those thought lost to addiction back in control of their lives.
Here is one of our most recent successes among all the chaos:
“My life before Narconon Colorado was stagnant and harmful to myself, to the people in direct contact with me and to society as a whole. Life was about getting through the next 24 hours. I was unhappy, irresponsible, and going in the wrong direction. I had no confidence, no motivation, and avoided all difficult situations. I confronted nothing and self-sabotaged. Not only was I mentally unstable, but my physical health was on the decline. Alcohol was my constant numbing agent and my drinking was every day, all day, no matter what my obligations were. I was in a state of desperation when I walked through the doors here.
“After five months of sobriety, things are very different. I am positive and have become a contributing member of my Narconon family. Life is about experiencing every moment and having awareness of how I affect myself and others. The Narconon program was so much more than just quitting drinking. In my 146 days of sobriety, I have become more productive, more organized, more focused, and capable of facing each day and confronting difficult situations without being anxiety-ridden, scared, and defensive.
“Each day is an opportunity and I can make it what I want to make it.
“Sauna helped me to start feeling normal again. I could sleep, I could eat, I could exercise, I could wake up feeling good. Objectives made me become more aware of myself and put my thought process back together. They got me back in the present. Life Skills allowed for healing. Putting out on the table my shameful behavior and making amends to those people in my life who are important to me.
“I am now accountable in all I do. I will be selective in those I surround myself with and set appropriate boundaries to remain in healthy relationships. I am leaving behind all the baggage I walked into Narconon with. I have the tools to be successful. If I live morally and ethically, everything will fall into place and I can handle all the bumps in the road.
“I am now accountable in all I do. I will be selective in those I surround myself with and set appropriate boundaries to remain in healthy relationships.
“The staff have been with me every step of the way. Each staff member contributed in their own way. I always felt cared about and supported. I admire the staff’s honesty and no-nonsense approach. Things really are black and white, right or wrong. I see them living it and practicing what they preach.
“Thank you for all the effort to help get me clean and to get me through the program. I know you are all confident in me and will hold me accountable in the future.
“I can do this!”
