I Feel Fully Prepared to Face My Life Sober!

Narconon Colorado graduate

I got to Narconon Colorado on November 14th, 2020, and I didn’t know what to expect. My arrival was the product of an intervention since I was unable to see how bad my addiction was and how much help I actually needed. Leaving my life behind, especially my husband, was something I wasn’t ready for or prepared for and that made it nerve-wracking and sort of confusing as to what was going to happen to the things in my life like work and just to me in general. Now that I have completed my program, 90 days seems like nothing, and all those things that made me nervous and confused seem so silly because I have so much confidence and certainty in my life after completing the program. I wonder why I didn’t come sooner.

From Withdrawal to sauna, I got rid of all the toxins and drug residuals in my body and came out feeling like a whole new person, physically. My mind had this foggy cloudiness that lifted and my energy level went up; not to mention how good my hair, skin, and nails got. I just overall had a feeling of health I hadn’t had in a long time.

After finishing the sauna detox, I moved on to the Objectives. Objectives was the longest journey for me on my program. I had some hard points on my program and there times where I thought I wasn’t going to make it. I never gave up and neither did the wonderful people working with me. I went through a journey of self-discovery on my Objectives and found out things about myself I never knew. I found out why I did or didn’t do certain things and I figured out who I am, what I want out of life, and what I’m going to be in the future. That was very unexpected and amazing. I was partnered with someone during Objectives, or as we say, “twinned.”

I became very close with my twin and going through all the roller coaster of emotions that I went through can be overwhelming by yourself, but with my twin, I felt like we were always in it together like real teammates and we got through it together.

After Objectives is Life Skills where I did multiple courses to help fix my life. I first did a course where I looked at the people in my life and figured out who were the good people and who were the not so good people I was surrounding myself with. This helped me to evaluate for myself who the right kind of people are to keep in my life. I felt very appreciative of the people in my life because I could finally see how many truly loving and caring people I have around me and I can’t help but to feel blessed because of it.

Another course I did was particularly hard for me, where I had to look at the things I had done that I’m definitely not proud of. I had to basically take a look at the things I had done in all areas of my life. Doing that made me confront the actions and things I did and that is not easy to say the least. I’ve done things that I am not proud of and that I haven’t told anybody about except my husband. To really look at myself like that made me feel so vulnerable and sick at times to recall. Now that I have bared my soul, I feel so much weight lifted off my shoulders. The best way to describe it is I feel clean. I never realized how much holding on to things I‘ve done was affecting me emotionally, mentally, and physically.

The last thing I did was a course that helped me look at what condition my life was in. I figured out, along with the staff, how to fix each and every area of my life. Now graduating and leaving Narconon, I feel fully prepared to face the world sober! I'm very thankful for everyone who helped me every step of the way and if anyone out there is struggling with addiction, I strongly encourage you reach out to Narconon Colorado and let them help you!
