Today I Realized …

Happy Guy
I have really been enjoying the sauna program. I feel much healthier, happier, and more calm. The sauna has given me time to think about many things.

Today I realized,

1. Just how much I had distanced myself from friends and family. People I talked to every day before drugs and alcohol only received text messages occasionally if ever.

2. How unsafe it was for my employees to work with me and by not using safety procedures, the risk I had put myself in.

3. How much I neglected my business and financial responsibilities.

4. Getting a better understanding of just how erratic my behavior was.

5. I can hold a conversation now without changing the subject 10 times before finishing.

6. I was taking Ambien more (after I quit using meth) to avoid facing the direction my life was going.

7. How many lies I told, I never thought I lied about anything other than my drug use but am now realizing that lies come in more forms than words.

Thanks again to everyone at Narconon Fresh Start!

I Have Learned So Much

Having never been to any type of rehab before, and was expecting an AA program since that’s the only type I had ever heard of even though I was willing to go, I was scared silly about what was going to happen.

The Fresh Start staff made the transition from every day life into the program very comfortable. Everyone there is very knowledgeable, understanding, and helpful.

I was expecting to go through hell during my withdrawal period but because of the one on one care and the natural approach that the Narconon Fresh Start program takes for withdrawals made it fairly easy.

I have learned so much in the short time I have been here. I have not had any desire to have alcohol. Since being more educated about Ambien, I can say that I don’t even miss that. I managed to sleep 6 solid hours for the first time in 25 years without any sleep aids! I am extremely grateful for Narconon Fresh Start and I have barely just begun.

I Very Much Enjoy Being Here

When I first arrived I felt very scared, overwhelmed and cried. However everyone here welcomed me and I felt comforted that there was no judgment and tons of understanding. It was hard to be alone with out music. Plus I still didn’t feel well. But I slept a full 8 hours comfortably and woke feeling better than the day before. Jackie and Lindsey were awesome to me. I got to have a long Epson salt bath that really helped the injuries that I arrived with. The second day helped me understand the program more and helped me feel less anxious. Everyday that passes I feel better and the other students are all so welcoming and kind. We all can relate to each other which was very comforting. The assists were very relaxing and the exercises they taught me was very helpful. I very much enjoy being here and am eager to continue now that I am out of withdrawal.

It Feels Good to Have Energy and Not Crave

This is my 3rd day of sauna and since starting this process I have realized a few things.

1. It feels good to have energy and not crave or feel I need alcohol to not be anxious or depressed.

2. The exercising I have been doing feels great, it has always been my passion.

3. I feel proud of myself instead of ashamed of my behavior.

4. I feel more clear headed everyday. Like I used to feel before becoming an alcoholic.

5. I am making art again, I wasn’t when I was drunk and high everyday.

6. Being alone bothers me less and less each day.

7. I am having less intense stressful/scary dreams.

More Observant and Aware

I feel really good after finishing Objectives. Its amazing how much more observant and aware I have become. I really enjoyed Objectives. Thanks to Jason and Phil for taking the time to explain each one to me and making sure I fully understand it. I also have an improved ARC (Affinity, Reality, Communication) with my environment and the people in it as well as the ability to use intention and control. Overall I am very glad I came to Narconon South Texas to do my program. All the staff and interns are great. I am looking forward to moving onto the next step of the program.

Significant Improvement In My Abilities

Content WomanI just finished Training Drills and although it was tough to get through the first part of them, I got a lot out of doing them. After talking with several staff members, I understood better the real life applications of each drill. I saw significant improvement in my abilities to communicate, be there comfortably and confront. In my opinion Training Drills are the most important part of the entire Narconon Fresh Start program.

Present Moment

Objectives made me live in the present moment.

Becoming More Comfortable

Today I’m doing Training Drills and I am becoming more comfortable with confronting another person. The Training Drills can be frustrating and seem unimportant at times. But the longer you drill the better you understand them. I have learned a lot about why we do each Training Drill. And it has been very helpful and informative.

JA


An Energy I Haven’t Felt Since I Was a Kid

Everyday in sauna I feel an energy I haven’t felt since I was a kid. The staff have been so positive throughout the past few long weeks in here and it has helped out so much.

BH


Amazing Changes

I am almost done with the Objectives course and it has amazed me how much I have taken from this course. I would have never guessed that such simple drills could produce such amazing changes. Thanks to my twin for running a proper session. Also thanks to my course sups for explaining each Objective very well. I’m happy I came to Narconon Fresh Start. No other center could have given me the sensational experience I have received here.

JA


Feel Back to Normal

Before the sauna I was skeptical my joint aches would ever subside. The past two days have really disproved that. I finally feel back to normal. Zero pain anywhere.

Key Essentials to Live a Prosperous, Sober Life

Successful Life

I have invested a lot of time in other rehabilitation centers whose time span has been much longer than Narconon Fresh Start, and I’ve come to realize one thing; its not about how much time you spend at a treatment center, but the tools that you acquire. I have been 8 months sober now and I have never felt as fulfilled or comfortable in my own skin as I do now. Narconon Fresh Start has bestowed upon me the key essentials to live a prosperous, sober life. I have learned to move on and come to terms with all my mistakes; and instead of dwelling on my errors, I have learned from them. This program has allowed me to recuperate the relationship with my family, as well as be part of a new one. My own Narconon little fam-bam!

NP


Living a Productive Life

It Has Been A Blessing

Thanks for providing this environment for everyone to learn, grow, share, meditate, and balance life. There is no way in which I can ever repay you for this. It has been a blessing in disguise. All of the counselors provide so much. They do a great service which is extremely hard to do. I just want to thank everyone for the help from the mot simplest to the most complex. You have trained them well and I couldn’t thank them enough or give back for all they have taught me. Wish everyone the best for a bright future.

Truly Ready for A Fresh Start

Personal Values/Overts & Withholds was amazing. I confronted so much, everything from my past that I would not have done otherwise and would have continued pushing it to the back of my mind. I truly feel like I am now ready for a fresh start. Thank you.

Seeing the Social Qualities People Have

Now that I am here …

Woman Standing in a Field I told my family I have money saved and to find me a detox center. Two days later Nate (Drug Interventionist) was coming up my drive way! Originally I just planned on doing detox and then going back home. My parents could have sent me anywhere. They searched the internet and looked at 100s of different rehabs. This one kept calling them back to the website. My mom said she felt a calling or a force drawing her to this particular rehab facility. Now that I am here, it makes more and more sense why! Thank you all!
