I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the Narconon program for making it possible for the our high school students to have the opportunity to experience the Narconon drug ed presentations on September 27 and 28. It is because of your generous sponsorship that Jesse and Tony were able to present in my health classes for the past several years. It is my hope that you will continue to sponsor this outstanding and worthwhile program.
As you know, teens often make bad choice out of ignorance. These Narconon presentations help to erase that ignorance and help our students to understand the consequences of their decisions when it come to under-age alcohol consumption and drug use. They now have the knowledge of what drugs actually do to the body and why they should not experiment with them. Your approach with the students is upfront as well as direct and engaging.
Without your willingness to sponsor this Narconon Fresh Start Program, our students would not have had the opportunity to learn their important lessons. As an Educator I look forward to providing this opportunity to my future students.

The Narconon talk was extremely informative and eye-opening. I was able to gain important knowledge that I would have otherwise never known. The speaker is great and was able to answer all the questions presented to him. Also it did capture my attention and that of my peers because he made it interesting and easy to relate to and sometimes funny.
My thoughts we strengthened. I never plan on doing any drugs and this talk reinforced that belief and reassured me on my decision. I know people who use drugs so I can inform them and maybe help spread awareness-prevention and help them stop.
I thought the Narconon talk was very informative and it made me actually think twice about ever using drugs because after hearing that information I know what the drugs can do to my body and also to my life. When someone is going to use drugs I can now stop them and tell them how they are affecting themselves.

This was very educational. Unlike health classes, the talk was very open. It’s the stuff kids need to hear about…the details! Because kids think they know everything and think they’re invincible. If all we hear about is that, “it’s bad for you” and “be drug free” without TRULY understanding why or how, it’s useless. Kids are curious of course, and it’s interesting to hear about what’s going on behind the drug, what it is, how it’s made, etc. It’s like getting to know your enemy. Otherwise, if we know nothing about it, kids think, “Oh, it’s not going to happen to me.”

I really enjoyed this and I thought it was really helpful advice for the future. Using the information I learned today I can help other people who are addicted.

My thoughts changed after hearing the talk today because I thought smoking was cool. I was even trying to do it one day. That’s how this changed me.

This motivated me to continue to stop smoking weed. I used to go out with my friends and we would smoke weed but my boyfriend inspired me to stop. I’m very happy I did because I see how stupid people look smoking weed and doing other hardcore drugs, like it’s so cool. This helps me to stay off.
