I’ve Learned I Can Be Happy and Appreciate Life Again

Narconon Colorado Graduate Corey

Coming to the Narconon program was the best thing I could have done for myself and my family.

I was afraid when I first came here because I didn’t understand it. I didn’t think I would be able to get through it. It was tough at times but with the right motivation, help from the staff and fellow students, I am happy to say this was the proudest thing I have accomplished in my life so far.

Starting on the withdrawal step helped me prepare for the program ahead. It helped clean my body of all the withdrawal symptoms and started teaching me to clear my head so I could be in the moment.

Then came sauna, which physically made me feel ten years younger after having removed all the toxins I had been putting in my body over the years. I had more energy, I gained weight, slept better and even my skin cleared up. It truly was amazing to see the transformation during the sauna.

Next came the objectives course, which was the toughest for me. I believe it was the most beneficial part of the program. The objectives course helped me to become a more patient and tolerant person. I learned that I could control myself. It helped me to be in the moment and clear my head of all the stress that drove me to drink. It also helped me become more understanding of others and deal with my emotions in a positive manner.

“It gave me the tools to be a better person.”

The final step of the program, which is life skills, helped me see all the things I did in the past that hurt myself and those I care for. It helped me prepare for the sober life that waits ahead and to deal with certain people and situations in my life that I may come across in the future. It gave me the tools to be a better person.

The Narconon program saved my life, showed me that I can be happy and appreciate life for the first time in fifteen years.
