Narconon Fresh Start Success Stories

I Haven’t Felt This Good In Years

Being in sauna has helped me tremendously. It feels so good to have put on 15 lbs and just be healthy and normal. I haven’t felt this good in years and I can truly say I’m happy today and proud of myself.


It Is Exciting

Guess what?! I’m now on Battle Plans. This is new to me and I’m currently in transition so it makes it way more real as to what I need to set in place in order to fulfill my dreams and achieve lasting happiness. It requires much soul searching, but yet it is exciting!


I Learned The Differences Between Right And Wrong

During Personal Values I learned the differences between right and wrong in my life as well as the rights and wrongs in life in general.


I Have Learned To Dig Deep

At first writing OW’s were tedious and emotional for me. In the process I have learned to dig deep in thought, put it on paper, and get it off my chest. It is a refreshing feeling when I get through a life area. i am ready to be done and have a fresh start in life. Yay for me!


I’ve Learned Things About Myself

Self OW’s have been difficult for me, but at the same time I’ve learned things about myself; the way I operate and why I tend to do the things I do. I am confronting my past and am excited for the end result.


I Have A Purpose

I feel relieved that I got a lot off my chest this week. I’m starting to feel better both mentally and physically. After writing about myself, it made me realize that I’m lucky to be alive. I have a purpose here in society and I’m going to work my hardest to fulfill my goals that I set for myself.


A Growing Experience

Being on Objectives has been a growing experience. Along with my personal growth, I’ve got to see the growth and changes in my twin which has been great. I look forward to completing this course and moving on further in the teachings.


Happier And More Cheerful

Since beginning Objectives, I have been happier and more cheerful. I’m very much looking forward to finishing Objectives and moving forward in my program, especially with the help of my irreplaceable twin. He rocks my socks off.


Thanks For The Hospitality

My major success is the fact that I am sober and eating well. I feel wonderful as we have a nice work out facility and a friendly staff. Once again as I have said before, “Thanks for the hospitality.”


Choose To Live A Sober Lifestyle

I feel better about myself now and choose to live a sober lifestyle from here on out.


I Physically Feel Much Better

I feel physically much better. My tracks/abscesses are almost gone. I have gained back 5 lbs of weight that I lost using. I am eating much more than when I first arrived. I try to keep my mind in a positive space as much as possible. Sleep has improved a great deal and I feel like this is working to get me better.


I Am So Thankful To Be Here

I have been in sauna for 10 days now and really can’t put into words how I am feeling. It feels incredible to be finally comfortable in my own skin again. I am sleeping great; I don’t remember the last time I fell asleep to wake up in the exact same spot with the bed still pretty much made. I am so thankful to be here and have another chance at life.


My Body Is Getting Healthier

So far I feel as though my body is getting healthier as I’m going through the sauna process. My skin looks healthier than it has in years.


A More Positive Outlook

By Now, I’m half way through Objectives and starting to have a more positive outlook on it. I personally had a rough go with it in the beginning. It made no sense to me. But after it was explained to me about how it teaches one to solve their frustrations without turning to drugs or alcohol, it made sense to me.


More Calm And Patient

Today I feel like I am more calm and patient. I appreciate my surroundings more and this place and the people who are in my life. That includes my family, my friends and the staff.


This Has Really Opened My Eyes

Since I’ve came onto course this has really opened my eyes so far and it has really helped me. It made me aware of social and anti-social characteristics. Now I’m starting to write letters to my family to make amends and start over. I feel like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and I’m excited to keep writing and learning in this program to become a better person.


I Feel So Relieved

I just passed Objectives and I feel so relieved. It feels really good to have come this far when in the past I would have usually quit. It has not always been easy, but it’s been rewarding.


I Am Ready To Apply All The Tools I Have Learned

My success right now is the ability to clear my head after writing OW’s with exercise. Lifting weights, shooting hoops and running have helped me immensely through the program. A huge milestone happened for me yesterday. I bench pressed 225 lbs four times. I haven’t done that since college and it felt great. I am ready to apply all the tools I have learned through the program to my life. I will stay in shape after I leave to always stay mentally fit.


Analyzing The Social And Anti-Social Characteristics

So far in course I’ve been analyzing the social and anti-social characteristics. It has made me take a deeper look at the people that I surround myself with including myself.


I Have Learned A Great Deal Of Patients

So far in the program I have learned a great deal of patients, to think before I speak and to pick my battles. I have also learned that I learn more about myself and get more out of the program when I am involved in helping someone else.


Comfortable In The Present

Since I have started Objectives I have learned to be comfortable in the present time without sticking in the past moment.


I Can Forgive Myself

This is a very hard process, but the easy stuff doesn’t work. Writing all of these horrible things is extremely hard, but it has helped me so I can forgive myself. I’m feeling better everyday and the more I write makes me feel even better. Thank you to everyone who has helped me. Every single one of you have helped me a different way.


I’m Feeling More Confident

I’ve been here a little over two months now. I’m in the middle of OW’s and feel great. Better than I expected. I’ve disconnected and eliminated the dangerous parts of my life. My future is still unclear, but I know it’s going to be much healthier and happier being sober. I’m feeling more confident with my ability to make the right choices and much stronger to not go back to the life I am familiar with. I’m very happy with my progress and look forward to continuing in a positive direction.


I Am In Control Of My Own Mind And Body

During Objectives, I’ve realized I am comfortable in my own skin, most of the time. I take me with me wherever I go and I am in control of my own mind and body and the choices I make that contribute to my well-being or self-destruction.

I have the ability to make changes in certain things, but I don’t have the control over everything. There are times when I have to let go of wanting to have control over other things (situations, people) and accept that. I also have to have self-awareness, be conscious of my own actions, learn how to identify, address and handle my emotions and feelings. I’m learning to go beyond hearing others -actually listening and learning to observe and communicate better.

I’ve noticed that keeping my material things organized, exercising, eating properly, having a daily routine/schedule help keep my mind at ease. Keeping myself busy with positive people and activity as well as making sure I have some alone time too, reduces my anxiety and gives me better balance in life.

There are a lot of seemingly small things that are really important. It’s making me feel better everyday. I’m really thankful for that.


More Clearheaded

Sauna has helped me sleep better and gain more energy. Since sauna I feel more clearheaded and I feel more present. All in all, I feel much better.


Keeping Families Together After Drug Addiction at Narconon Fresh Start

Keeping Families Together at Narconon Fresh Start

Drug addiction, more often than not, tears families apart. The addicted person will usually start to act differently and isolate his or her self from the family and begin to cause a lot of pain and heart break among their loved ones from the poor choices that are being made while under the control of drug addiction.

We help individuals understand the hurt and pain that they caused to their family and society through their addiction by getting them to take a look at the past decisions they made. Once they recognize how their actions affected others, they are able to go in and start repairing the damage that was created.

We see families truly being restored everyday here at Narconon Fresh Start even after all of the heartache. Here are what some parents have to say about how Narconon Fresh Start helped their family.

She has an avocation. She makes incredible cakes. And she does them all here so whenever she has a cake to make, she’s over here for several hours. It’s just fun. It’s a joy to have her back in my life and to see the person she has become and continues to become. It’s a huge gift for me. I can’t imagine her not in my life.”

From Drug Addiction to Recovery at Narconon Fresh Start

I Know what it Means to be an Ethical Person

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 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.


I Feel Like a New Man

I feel so terrific! I feel like a new man. Throughout the sauna program, I could literally see my life change. I feel a million times better today about everything in my life. I used to always be so depressed and always in so much pain. Now all my pains are gone. I feel great and I am happy and energetic. Today I can honestly say that I truly love life. I thank everyone at Narconon Fresh Start for helping me to better my life. It is so awesome.


I’ve been able to Expand my Vocabulary

Today I felt like I went back to school. I mean that in a good way. I’m here at Narconon Fresh Start being educated on the rights and wrongs of life. I’ve learned how to communicate properly and I’ve learned how to react properly. I’ve also been able to expand my vocabulary thanks to the courses here. I’m fond of the other students as well as the staff.


I see a Beautiful, Bright and Happy Life in my Future

Today I finished one of the courses that the Narconon Fresh Start program provides. It’s really helped me gain a firm hold onto the program and my current state. I feel much more confident when I face people and discuss my issues. My self-esteem has sky rocketed: my reservations have plummeted. I am ready with all my heart to continue on my journey of self-healing, self-discovery and sobriety. I see a beautiful, bright and happy life in my future. This is just the beginning of my new life and the demise of my old. It’s just like the Tarot Death card, death of old, birth of new.


I am Very Grateful for this Opportunity

I didn’t know what to expect when I first got here. Over the course of a few hours, the students and staff both greeted me very sincerely and they made me feel comfortable. I am willing to do whatever it takes to get through the program. I intend to learn as much as possible while my time is spent here. I will be patient and will abide by the rules to the best of my ability. I am very grateful for this opportunity to make things right for myself and all the people I’ve hurt.


I Finally can take Responsibility for my Actions

I feel very relaxed and happy to have gotten some of the things that I regret off my chest and behind me. I realized a lot of things that I did to my loved ones were wrong. I finally can take responsibility for my actions. I feel comfortable moving forward and I am aware of how much I am loved by others. I know I am blessed to be so lucky. Thanks to the staff of Narconon fresh Start.


I Feel 10 Years Younger

I can’t believe I’ve been sleeping like a baby! Wow, it’s been too long. I feel ten years younger and I feel like my entire life is just ahead of me. It’s such an amazing feeling! My head no longer hurts and my eyes are brighter. I can’t believe I waited this long to stop using drugs. If I knew what I know now, I would have turned my life around long ago!

Advice to Parents about Looking for Drug Rehab

Diana’s son overcame his heroin addiction at Narconon Fresh Start. He has been clean and sober since 2010.

We asked Diana in a video interview what kind of advice she would give to parents if they were looking for a rehab program and this is what she had to say.

Diana’s Advice to Parents about Looking for Drug Rehab

Diana's Son got off Heroin at Narconon Fresh Start“If I could give any advice to other parents, it would be to just try this program because it’s one of the most successful programs. I don’t know of any other rehab programs out there that are as successful as the Narconon Fresh Start programs. I know a lot of other parents who their kids have been (and not just kids, but spouses and whoever) have been in different programs and it hasn’t been very successful. Whereas, this program, the success rate is higher so why even try those other ones. You may end up spending more doing all of those other different programs than just starting off doing this program – the one time good deal. If I was having to make that decision and being in that struggle right now, I would already know that you just choose this program because it works and the success rate is so high. We’re so fortunate that he only had to go to this one program.

“How many programs actually offer a detox program where you have a physical change in you or to where you don’t have those physical cravings anymore? That is a physical thing that happens so the whole detox part of it is awesome. You’re healing your physical body as well as your mental and I don’t know what other programs out there offer that. And I like that it’s not other drugs that come into play. It’s vitamins so the body can heal itself. I’m just a firm believer in that. I think that’s why the program is as successful as it is because it has both the physical and the mental going on and you need both.

“I’m sure there are other programs where you get some kind of mental clarity, but they still have the physical craving. That’s not going to work. So you have to look at that. And this program offers that. It offers life skills that I as a parent can’t even teach my child that he now has forever. I think we all need those life skills and we probably wouldn’t have all of these social issues, but that’s another story.

“The program is worth it because whether it took my son three months to get through the program or it took him a year to get through the program, the cost paid for him to be there and to be successful at it. And if he had a relapse then it took care of that too and the success rate is just way higher than anything else so you almost have a guarantee for what you invest in and you know what, I’m investing in my son and that’s how I looked at it.”

Happy New Year!

Narconon Fresh Start would like to wish you a Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! We hope that 2015 has started out well for you. This is often a time in one’s life where they reflect on their past year and make decisions to change the areas of their life that are not working for them. If you or a loved one is struggling with drug or alcohol addiction it can be a time that inspires change and taking positive steps to create the life you truly want to be living. Addiction to drugs or alcohol can feel as though you are left with few choices and that your substance use controls your life. And, in a very real way it does. An addicted person often no longer puts their health, personal relationships, education, career or finances as their first priorities. It is their drug of choice that takes center stage each and everyday; controlling their decisions, their actions, their behavior and ultimately their life. We would like to extend to you the possibility of attending the Narconon Fresh Start drug and alcohol rehab program. When you choose to enroll in the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program you will be putting into motion the process of truly ending your addiction. Through our unique and entirely drug-free rehabilitation program you will handle the physical aspect of your addiction to drugs or alcohol while also identifying, confronting and handling the specific causes of your addiction and changing the behaviors associated with it.

The Narconon Fresh Start drug and alcohol rehab program is different from other treatment methods because we do not treat addiction as a disease. Clients are not labeled as lifelong addicts or alcoholics, but rather as students enrolled in a drug rehab program where they are addressing their addiction issues and resolving them. At Narconon Fresh Start, program participants truly recover from their addiction because they are handling their physical and mental problem of addiction by addressing the underlying issues that they were trying to resolve with their substance abuse.

There are several key steps of the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program that build one upon another. Drug-free withdrawal is a critical part of the program as the recovering individual segues from their previous lifestyle of using drugs or alcohol to one of existing in a drug-free state. Program participants who require medical detox prior to enrollment in the Narconon Fresh Start program will still undergo the drug-free withdrawal process when they arrive because it is an essential part of the transition into the Narconon Fresh Start program.

After drug-free withdrawal, the program participant is ready to begin the initial part of the Narconon Fresh Start program and the New Life Detoxification program. The New Life Detoxification Program is exclusive to Narconon drug rehabilitation programs and delivers exceptional withdrawal techniques and nutritional therapies to help the recovering individual rid their body of the remaining drug toxins stored in their fatty tissue. Through this process, program participants reduce their physical drug cravings, and in many cases eliminate them altogether. They also benefit from improved health, emotional balance, and quality of sleep during and after they have completed the process.

To treat addiction as a physical and mental problem that can be overcome means addressing the underlying issues that drove the individual to choose substance abuse to solve their life problems. During the individual’s time in treatment, they will receive Narconon Fresh Start’s Life Skills course to help them identify and work through the underlying issues they struggle with while working on modifying their behavior. We use a method known as manualized cognitive behavioral modification; program participant’s benefit from Narconon Fresh Start’s uniform and standardized treatment plan. The program is very structured and set up in a step by step sequence of Life Skills training manuals that provide the best results for our clients. While Narconon Fresh Start is not the easiest or quickest means to ending drug or alcohol addiction, it has proven itself as the most effective treatment method to achieving lasting sobriety. The investment the individual makes in their rehabilitation and recovery during their time enrolled in the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program benefits them for the rest of their life. The life skills and personal growth they come away with when they graduate from Narconon Fresh Start effectively helps them build the sober and productive lifestyle they are seeking to achieve.
