I Finally Know that I’ll Be Okay
I remember pulling up to the center with my cousin and my first thought was, ‘What am I doing here?’ I was so lost and confused. I was trying to find every excuse not to be here at Narconon. I walked many laps outside in the backyard, hoping for a miracle, that overnight all my worries and problems would be solved.
Well, that didn’t happen.
I continued to struggle as I faced my demons and there were many times I got frustrated enough to want to quit and go back to drinking, but I didn’t.
Through the withdrawal process and sauna detox, I gained my physical strength back. I feel like I got the most out of the program because of how much the staff care and how they were constantly reminding me that I would be okay.
As I got into the main parts of the program, I learned a lot about myself. Objectives and the communication drills helped me learn how to be in the moment and let me have the power to start minimizing my worries. I am forever grateful for the help of all the staff here. The Life Skills section was really tough but allowed me to confront many issues that hindered my happiness. I realized the only way I dealt with my issues was to use drugs and alcohol. At the end of the program, I made a plan to give myself the best chance to continue my sobriety and stay happy. It was very much needed.
“Narconon saved my life, and today, has given me the courage to tell myself that no matter what happens, I’ll be okay and I can do it sober.”
This may sound corny, but Narconon saved my life, and today, has given me the courage to tell myself that no matter what happens, I’ll be okay and I can do it sober. Thank you to all the staff for pushing me and encouraging me to keep going, and to be honest with myself.
