I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for the Narconon Fresh Start program. I remember being so scared and afraid of entering the program for fear of what was in store for me. I’d never been in a long-term residential drug rehab program before. Sure, I’d gone to outpatient treatment; but honestly, that was pretty much a joke as far as I was concerned. I was just making my parents happy and doing my best to keep my job at the time. I didn’t take it seriously. Narconon Fresh Start was exactly that, a fresh start for me. I learned things about myself that I never would have realized without their skilled staff. I was able to discover the real issues that made me feel the need to turn to drugs as a way to cope. I not only got off drugs, but actually addressed the personal issues that drove me to want to use.
Their program also included a total body purification process known as the New Life Detoxification Program. While I hated sweating every day, I did see the benefits almost from the start. I was able to put on weight; much needed as my 5’5 – 95lb appearance was exceptionally gaunt and skeletal. I learned how to eat right, exercise and spent my days in the dry sauna sweating out the drug toxins and metabolites left behind by my years of drug abuse. When this portion of my drug rehab program was complete I had color back in my face, was no longer experiencing drug cravings and was feeling better than I had since I had started abusing drugs.
Thanks to the Narconon Fresh Start program I was able to return home and finish college after my graduation from the rehab program. After graduating from college I found a great job and have been living a successful, productive life. To this day, I still use the life skills training I learned while living at the rehab center. Additionally, I find my communication skills to be extremely beneficial when it comes to my career as a project manager. I count my blessings and will forever be grateful to Narconon Fresh Start for helping me get off drugs and learn to live a happy, sober life that I am proud of.
