Getting Better For Myself

Happy young man

Often times people who are starting out in recovery do so because their family wants them to. While there is nothing wrong with this, it is important that a person develops their own personal desire to get better for not only their family but for themselves as well. Some people realize this right away and it may take some people longer than others to see this and that is ok. When a person is able to have this realization and shift in mindset they are able to see that they are worth it and that their life is worth fighting for.

“I came to Narconon because I had a drinking problem that I could not stop on my own. By going through the steps in the program I realized I was doing this for myself and no one else. By doing this it made me also realize that by me being a better person and happy with myself everything and everyone would see that too. I just want to thank all the staff for being here for me and saving my life.”
