When I was 12, me and my brother went over to my dad’s house one weekend and we got high on meth. I always wanted to do it after that and I kept on doing it.

I’ve been getting high for 20 years. I started using the needle. I had track marks all over my arms. I was not healthy. I weighed 98 pounds. I was always in the hospital because I had kidney infections and getting beat up by my boyfriend. My house has been raided by the police. I spent time in jail. My parents didn’t want to see me because I was always such a basket case. Me and my sister had a bad relationship. I was a mess.

I think Narconon Fresh Start is the best thing I ever done for myself. When I started the sauna at Narconon Fresh Start, I could actually feel it coming out. I actually started to feel like myself, like when I was 12 years old, before I started using drugs. I got energy, I actually liked communicating with people that were around me. I felt like a real normal person. I was happy with myself and with who I saw when I looked in the mirror.

I have really found out who I am and they taught me a lot about life in general and how to get your values back in life and how to respect yourself and respect your family and the people that you want to talk to and the people that you don’t want to talk to. I think it’s an awesome program. The staff there are really helpful. I really appreciate them and I am very, very thankful for them.
