I will Never Forget this Program and What it has Done for Me.

“I have never been to a program like this before. I wanted to come here, but I was a little bit nervous. After being helped with my drug and eating habits, I saw the program in a different light. I will never forget this program and what it has done for me. I will refer it to everyone I know. I had a good time actually. Doing the first part of the program was easier than I thought and much more rewarding. I will never forget the help, support and encouragement that I received here at Narconon fresh Start. Thank you.”

Narconon Fresh Start has Helped me Take Responsibility

“This program at Narconon Fresh Start has helped me take responsibility for my actions. I was destructive and irresponsible. I caused some serious damage to my wife and kids. I can make sure that those things do not happen again. I know what it means to be an ethical person and what happens if you are not. My inability to control myself led me to lose many things that I loved. At least now I can start fresh and make amends to the best of my ability. This program has given me this chance.”

Maturing in the Right Way

“Before I came to Narconon Fresh Start, I had the worst temper. I hated control; I hated authority. I even hated having people tell me what I could and couldn’t do. I know I couldn’t even control myself. The courses here are helping me learn how to control myself and to not freak out and explode when I get angry. Now, I try to communicate about what is bothering me before reacting. I’m watching myself mature in the right way and it feels great.!”

Fresh, Positive, Happy Outlook

Fresh Positive Happy OutlookI now have a great, fresh, happy, positive outlook. I have cut ties with the negative people and have a better understanding of who I want to be in my life. Narconon Fresh Start helped me learn how to go about working on myself and all the areas of my life. I have had a lot of buildup in my life throughout the years and was able to be upfront and honest with myself. I also learned how much I have been missing out on by being stuck in the past and am now expecting more out of my future. I know now how to make the most out of life and focus on the present so my future will be positive and drug-free. I realized how much I have affected people and myself when I thought everything was alright. I was so wrong as much as I hate to say it with all my complaining. I think I have gotten a lot out of this program. Looking around and seeing a bunch of strangers going through the most uncomfortable part of their lives and getting along and working together is something I will never forget. I am nervous, but very positive that I have the tools to achieve my goals and prosper in my life. I realize now how much work goes into the present time and how much energy I was using in the past. Thank you Narconon Fresh Start and all the staff for putting up with me and my bad attitude. I am so proud and happy I completed this program. I learned more than I thought I would.

Feeling More Comfortable

When I arrived at Narconon Fresh Start I felt like a fish out of water. About 2 or 3 days later I felt completely different about the situation. I had made several friends, learned the daily routine and felt comfortable. I am very lucky to have the roommates/friends that I have. I don’t even count the days.

Having Self-Realizations

My success for the day is completing the Ups and Downs book, anti-social and social behavior. I continue to have realizations about myself and others as I go through this program. Right now I am on analyzing personalities in my life. I have completed them all up through the checkoff of adding up anti-social and social behaviors. I am about to go back and write down my thoughts about each person and his or her characteristics.

Narconon Fresh Start Gave Me My Life Back

Narconon Fresh Start Gave Me My Life BackThroughout my program here at Narconon Fresh Start, there have been many ups and downs. Looking back at everything, I could not be more pleased with how much this place has given back to me. I came as a broken and lost individual. Narconon Fresh Start gave me my life back. I started out with my drug withdrawal stage which was tough, but luckily the staff helped me through the hard times. With the completion of the sauna drug detox program, I legitimately got a Fresh Start. I could sleep again, eat, have normal bodily functions and most importantly smile again. I was ready and able to work on my mind when I got into the training drills. I started to see the essential life skills being taught. Objectives helped me to be comfortable again and gain control. I learned communication and how to be present and became more aware and I realized how important these skills are. I liked sauna the most for my body and the life skills helped my mind the most. I used to have trouble with dwelling on the past. Narconon Fresh Start helped me overcome that weakness. I am grateful that I was able to learn about the social and anti-social personalities, and how to get over past transgressions in a structured way and acknowledge the different conditions of my life along with how to improve the different areas of my life. I owe Narconon Fresh Start and the staff and all the friendly faces I met along the way a big thanks. I would still be lost without the help of this place. I am forever grateful to Narconon Fresh Start for giving me my life back.

Feeling cleansed and confident after detox

Narconon Fresh Start Success StoryAt the start of the Narconon Fresh Start sauna detox program my thoughts was blurred and unclear. I was frightened and anxious. The first few days were very difficult but by day 3 or 4 I realized that my mind and body were beginning to take on significant changes. At this point in the New Life Detoxification program my energy level was still quite low, but my thoughts were becoming clearer. I realized that many years of alcohol abuse had taken a major toll on my body. Overtime, the lethargic feelings began to subside and my confidence was returning. I didn’t feel as self-conscious as I had been feeling and the desire to isolate myself was no longer there. I was once again beginning to enjoy and value my surroundings. My time alone is no longer isolation, it’s just time that I take out of my day to realize the beauty that surrounds me. I’m now clearer and much more focused; I feel cleansed and confident. I’m once again enjoying life and I look forward to moving onto the next phase of the program.
