Improving Communication Skills


Training Drills are done after the New Life Detoxification step of the Narconon program has been completed. These drills are done with a partner in order to improve team working skills. The main purpose of the Training Drills is to increase a person’s ability to confront, control and communicate. These skills will help a person not only gain more out of the Objectives portion of their program but also help them later on in life.

“The Training Drills helped me with a few things, such as being able to communicate with my partner. I am able to understand him on a different level now as well. I feel like we are going to fly through these objectives together and beat the demons that both of us have. I want us both to be able to get as much out of the Objectives Course as we can.” —Nathan C.

“I believe my partner and I had good performance running the Training Drills. We finished Confronts, which provided a solid start. That momentum carried throughout the drills. We were very engaged and that helped us stay focused. We had a very good foundation.” —Chris S.
