Drug Addiction and Recovery

As a former addict I know how difficult it can be to think of life without getting high. I lived only to do my next line. Sure, I’d take just about any drug I could get my hands on but cocaine was my drug of choice. Drug addiction took over my life and changed who I was as a person. I didn’t recognize myself in the mirror anymore, not that I cared much about that fact at the time. That’s drug addiction for you. It changes more than just the user’s behavior and appearance. It changes who they are as a person. It strips them of their hopes and dreams and gives them instant gratification and a powerful high they continue to chase until the grave (for some). I was one of the lucky ones. It didn’t take death for me to stop my cocaine addiction. It took my acceptance that I had a serious problem and needed help to stop.

That’s where Narconon Fresh Start came into my life. I had been through outpatient treatment before and had no success. Zero, zilch, nada. Then after just a month at Narconon Fresh Start I started to come out of my shell. I was going through their New Life Detoxification program and experiencing amazing results. I could actually envision my life without cocaine and other drugs. I was doing it each day, staying sober by choice. What a huge accomplishment. What I learned during my time in recovery has stayed with me all the years. I now have over a decade of sobriety and I know I owe it to what I learned while at Narconon Fresh Start.

The first few years after treatment were not as easy as they are today. I really had to practice my skills and techniques almost daily. Today, they are second nature. What Narconon Fresh Start did for me is nothing short of turning my life around. Their program is able to fully address the client’s addiction problem from every angle. When they tell you that you are close to graduating from their drug rehab you know that you have successfully conquered you drug addiction issue. Recovery from addiction is possible and Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs know how to successfully accomplish it.
