Figuring Out My Priorities

Father and Son

The New Life Detoxification portion of the program (also known as the sauna) is an important aspect of the Narconon Program. This is often times a major turning point in people’s journey towards addiction recovery.

“Sauna was an eye-opener for me, it provided me with days where I was able to sit, listen to music and really think. I constantly thought about all the people that have stuck by my side, my children that are always there no matter what and how I came to this point in my life. By becoming aware of what everyone else had been going through during my substance abuse, I am starting to understand what I need to be doing and where my priorities need to be. I believe if I continue to use the skills that I have learned so far, they will be very beneficial in my new life.”—Jeremy J.

“Completing the Sauna program has been very beneficial! I feel both mentally and physically healthier. I’m sleeping much better than before, which in turn has provided me with an amazing energy boost and a clearer mind. Facing issues from my past and coming to terms with some negativities in my life are big wins for me.”—Dan W.

“Sauna has helped me gain a lot of positives both mentally and physically. I eat and sleep better than I have in a long time, and have been able to build a nice daily routine for myself which I feel provides structure to my life. I’m a lot happier in general and find myself feeling hopeful for the future, not only in terms of my success in the program but my sober life as well. I feel very accomplished to have made it to this point in the program.”—Joseph H.

I am very glad to be done with the Sauna portion of the program and am very pleased with the results. I no longer feel like I am in a fog, each day I feel a little more like myself again. My hat goes off to the staff of Narconon for all the extra help they have given me to this point!”—Mitch O.
