I Know I Can Live Without Drugs

Confident young man

When people first get to treatment they often question whether or not they can live without using drugs. Some people even question if they even want to live without drugs. The goal that we have for each individual is that by the time they have completed their program they have been able to realize that a life without drugs is not only possible, it is preferable.

Deep down no one really wants to go through life addicted to anything. It is not a good feeling to have to take something in order to feel normal. That is why it is so empowering for a person when they realize they can make it through life without drugs and not only feel normal but also feel healthy. When someone is truly able to handle their addiction they gain a newfound freedom and lease on life.

“This program has given me so much. It has given me my life back. I am so happy to be clean and have the tools I have learned here. It has been an adventure going through this program. But it is also the best thing I have ever done and completed. I know I can live without drugs in my body and have emotions, bad and good ones and not run to drugs when I am down. This program Narconon has given me a second chance at life and I am so grateful for everything the staff has done.”
