Objectives have brought me into present time

Objectives have brought me into present time. I was stuck deeply in the events of the past five years and became an out of control drunk. I am over the past now, and I hope my family understands that I am a different person than I was when I got to Lone Star Victory Ranch. Now, I am in control again and I have regained my confidence. By keeping this mind set I will have a great future in store for me.

Using drugs or alcohol effects more than the user’s body, it dampens their spirit as well. When a person uses drugs they often become “stuck” in past moments of their life, the feelings this brings up often makes them want to use even more. The cycle continues, the more the person uses the more they become stuck in their past and find facing the present and future difficult and overwhelming.

A person who regularly abuses drugs or alcohol losses their ability to focus on goals and objectives in their life, they also have a diminished ability to communicate effectively. An addicted person will have a hard time focusing, communicating with others and problem solving – these issues result in them being unable to achieve their goals in life.

Narconon Fresh Start uses a series of drills and communication exercises to help their program participants develop their ability to confront difficult life situations that they may find themselves in when they complete drug rehab. The first part of the objective exercises teach the client to have a better understanding of what communication really is and allows them to apply it to their present time situations in life. The second part of the objective course focuses on improving an individual’s present time awareness of what is going on around them, increases their ability to remain focused and complete day to day tasks that they start, as well improving upon their communication skills. The focus of many of these objective exercises is on communication. This is because being able to effectively communicate with those around you helps the recovering client to identify problems in life and how to solve them without the use of drugs or alcohol.

I feel more like myself again

Objectives have given me a lot. I am more like myself again and it feels good to complete such a big part of this program. I know I will be successful in life as long as I keep progressing, staying in present time and never letting my past downfalls affect me today. Stephanie has helped me a ton and got me through when I felt like giving up and saying forget this! It feels so good to be done!

The purpose of objective exercises and drills at Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs is to help extrovert the program participant and get his or her attention off themselves and onto the environment around them. The combination of communication drills and objective processes can have enormous therapeutic value for anyone who has been on drugs. During this course, two people pair up and work with each other on drills called Training Routines (TRs) and on an entire series of Objective Processes. They do this on a cooperative auditing basis; benefiting both individuals during the process. Clients become students as the progress through their program and learn valuable life skills. Students study, drill and then audit many different processes on each other; helping one another and being helped in return. They become more in present time and are oriented with the environment around them. These skills are shown to greatly raise a person’s potential for success and ability to remain sober once drug rehab is complete.
