Sauna has given me much more clarity in my life

Sauna Drug DetoxI am very excited to be out of sauna, but Sauna helped me a lot. Before I started Sauna I felt as I was always tired, but after completing Sauna I feel a burst of energy. Sauna also helped me gain some much needed weight from when I first started. I feel that sauna has given me much more clarity in my life.


I completed the New Life Drug Detoxification program and feel great and back to my former self again.


Thanks to Narconon Program I have gave myself the tools to change my life.



Thanks to the Changing Conditions course I have a formula to change the conditions in my life. It will be one of the ways I improve my life.


Thanks to OW’s I saw what kind of mistakes I was making. I see the changes I need to make so that it doesn’t happen again.

I Highly Recommend the Sauna

Sauna Drug Detox
Today was day 20 for me in sauna and I can’t express how much better I feel. I have improved in many different aspects of my sobriety. I highly recommend the sauna. They never said it was going to be easy, but well worth it. Thanks again.


People And Staff Here Are Amazing

Feel great and the people and staff here are amazing. Food is by far the best I’ve had at a rehab. Sleeping good now. Nothing bad to say at all.


Feel So Much Better

I didn’t want to be here at first, but now I am 2 weeks into sauna and feel so much better than when I first got here.


My Mood Has Changed

Sauna has made me feel a lot better since I have been here. I eat better, I sleep so much better, have a lot more energy and my mood has changed as well!!


Feeling A Weight Being Lifted

Course has been good so far. I am writing my handle letters and am already feeling a weight being lifted. I am looking forward to the rest of course and getting the full benefits out of it. Vince has been a huge help my first week here. And some of my peers have also been a big help.


Considering What’s Best For My Well Being

I’ve had a lot more patience and feel much healthier now. I find myself looking through others perspectives before I react. I’ve learned to look at things and people around me to consider what’s best for my well being. I can look at my past decisions and see the bad and the good and understand how it’s impacted who I am today.


I Care More About Myself And Others

From what I’ve learned about myself while writing my overts is that I’m not necessarily a bad person. I just made a lot of bad decisions. Going forward I feel I will be more prepared in the real world to not give in to peer pressure or simply the desire to use drugs and alcohol. I’m more aware of the self destruction of over consumption of these things and now I care more about myself and others to truly do the right thing.


I’m Enjoying This Program

I feel very accomplished after moving along in my OW’s. I feel pretty awesome for getting student of the week as well. I’m truly getting a lot out of it. I’m enjoying this program. Thank you Narconon Fresh Start.


I Have Come A Long Way

I have come a long way since arriving some 60+ days ago. From a quivering pile of jelly at withdrawal, through the sauna, and now in course. My progress has continued at a steady pace. I look forward to completing course and graduating on the 10th of March.


More Focused On What My Future Has In Store For Me

Since starting Objectives, I have been less focused on my past drug use and more focused on what my future has in store for me.


Communication Is Becoming Much Easier

Communication is becoming much easier with my twin, along with my confront. Staying in present time and not looking back on my past and looking ahead to the future is becoming much easier!


Teaching Me Great Patience Skills

I have learned that I am able to be more focused on the here and now in present time. Also I feel this is teaching me great patience skills, and also helping dramatically improve my communication skills.


Medical Drug Detox Compared to Drug-free Withdrawal Method

Ryan was addicted to opiates and methadone. He compares his personal experience between a medical drug detox and the Narconon Fresh Start drug-free withdrawal. He states that he was still being given medication about 15 days after being in the 30 day program and that by the time he was done, he was still going through withdrawal. Ryan completed the Narconon Fresh Start program and has been living a drug-free life since 2009.

Ryan’s Medical Drug Detox Experience Compared to the Drug-free Withdrawal Method at Narconon Fresh Start

Video transcript of Ryan’s medical detox experience compared to his drug-free withdrawal at Narconon Fresh Start.

Before arriving at Narconon Fresh Start, I had been to two other programs. They were both 30 day 12 Step type programs. And I had been using methadone and benzos. There was a med detox involved in that. It was about 15 days or so that I was still being given medication. By the time I was done and hit that 30 day mark, I was pretty much still going through withdrawal. Not feeling good physically, not really mentally. We would go to meetings here and there, but those kinda just got me down. They were a little depressing and it didn’t really, to me, give me like an answer that I was looking for, any kind of skills to be able to handle life appropriately. And so I pretty much relapsed immediately, both times that I went to these inpatient programs. I also did an outpatient program which just didn’t work at all. I used the entire time I was there and eventually was kicked out for using.

While in drug-free withdrawal at Narconon Fresh Start, I didn’t experience the painful withdrawals that I had normally experienced on my own or in other medical detoxes. Through the vitamins and minerals and different exercises that we did while on the drug-free withdrawal program, it helped me get through the process with very minimal amount of pain and agony that I was used to. There’s a lot discomfort and pain involved with coming off of opiates and benzos. I’ve done it many times and this time around it was no where near as painful and excruciating as some of those other times.

Narconon Fresh Start Drug Detoxification Success Stories

The Smaller things in My Life MatterThe Smaller things in my Life Matter

Now that I have completed the sauna drug detox, I now understand what the sauna was meant to do. At first I didn’t believe in it. But as I continued on, I gradually realized the benefits. First I started to get back my natural energy, something I haven’t had in a while. Second, I started to realize the smaller things in my life matter. I found myself enjoying things I would have not have noticed or enjoyed before. Thirdly, I became more relaxed while in sauna. Being in one spot would have normally driven me crazy, but not anymore. Lastly, I now feel like all the toxins have left my system and I’m ready to move on to the life skills courses.

Feeling Great!

I have been impatient as long as I can remember (27-28 years) and have battled inner demons for that long. I won some and lost some! One of the battles I lost again and again is patience. I quit when things got tough. Completing the sauna and sitting still for 30 days is a miracle and it feels great!

Narconon Fresh Start Goes Above and Beyond

Narconon Fresh Start LogoWhile most other drug rehab programs consider detox to be complete when their client’s withdrawal process has ended, Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs know that there is more to be done to help a person looking to fully recover from their addiction problem. Unbeknownst to the substances abuser, the substances they consume leave behind drug and alcohol metabolites and toxins which remain stored in their fatty tissue for years after they have been ingested. It is essential that these residual drug metabolites and toxins be removed so that they do not cause the recovering individual to suffer from drug cravings, depression and many other physical and emotional stressors when they are released into their blood stream. This process is a key component of the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program and is credited to be the reason for our exceptional success rate of total rehabilitation.

“The sauna program has really changed me. I feel so much different now that I get 8 hours of sleep I am much more alert and focused; I’m also more motivated and determined to do better in life. The sauna programs have also made my friends and family respect me and want to be around me more. I’m really looking forward to moving on in the program and having plenty of more wins.”
