I Have Noticed Improvements in My Awareness

Happy Sober LifeToday makes exactly one week since I’ve started objectives. The time is flying by and I’m really enjoying objectives. Since starting objectives I have noticed improvements in my awareness of my surroundings and I’m not dwelling on my past. I also have a great twin and an awesome teacher. Thank you Narconon Fresh Start.


Catching myself from Reacting Negatively

I realized how to catch myself from reacting negatively with the help of the patients and the staff.


It’s Nice to Feel Healthy Again

Sauna is going great. I feel so much better than before. It’s nice to feel healthy again.


Staying in the Present Moment

Objectives are great. They help me stay in the present moment. This will help me on the next step of the program and later on in life.


Taking Instruction and Completing Tasks

Objectives has helped me focus on the here and now. I am able to take instruction and complete the tasks given to me.

Now that I’ve learned the characteristics of social and antisocial people, I feel like I have the skills to stay clean.


Helping with My Patience

Sauna has given me time to think and has helped with my patience. The IC for sauna, Ashley, is awesome.


Life is Good

Life is good. I’m getting through sauna.

Sauna went amazing today. I love waking up in the am, running and then sweating in the sauna. I already feel so much better, and look way better than I did 2 weeks ago.


Joy of My Life

Sauna is the biggest freakin joy of my life.


Clear Mind, Clear Body

I Am So Grateful

I am so grateful for objectives bringing me into the present and helping to keep my mind off exterior concerns. Marni is the absolute best sup and makes understanding and running the objectives even better!


Course is a Life-Changing Event

Course is a life-changing event, Eric taught me so many life lessons. And how to be a gentlemen. If it wasn’t for OW’s I would have never realized I’ve done drugs before.


Doing My Battle Plan

After doing my battle plan and conference call with Judy and my family, I feel a big relief on what is going to happen when I leave. Thanks Judy, you’re the best.


One of the Positive People

I was tired when I woke up but as the day went on I became much more alert. Maybe because I was running tons of thoughts through my mind in course thinking of positive and negative people. I would like to think I am one of the positive people in this world.

Addiction Recovery Through Natural Healthful Methods

With over four decades of successful addiction recovery treatment, Narconon Fresh Start is leading the way in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Narconon Fresh Start’s network of drug rehabilitation centers are leaders in the field of addiction recovery. With treatment locations in Colorado, Texas, Nevada and Southern California their unique approach to addiction recovery has helped thousands over the past four decades end their addiction problem and learn to lead happy, healthy productive lives.

The Narconon Fresh Start program handles addiction recovery using the innovative holistic methods created by Mr. Benitez and Mr. Hubbard. Decades ago, Mr. Benitez was able to finally recover from his addiction problem using the life skills and education he learned through Mr. Hubbard’s literature. Much of Mr. Hubbard’s life was spent researching techniques to help others learn to live happier lives and recover from past unhappy experiences. Mr. Hubbard’s continued research on addiction recovery generated a natural, healthful way to assist addicted individuals mentally, physically and emotionally.

Taking what he learned, Mr. Benitez created a workable application of Mr. Hubbard’s principles to form a drug rehabilitation program that he shared with others. Their collaboration resulted in the first Narconon program. A drug and alcohol rehab program that works to address the individual as a whole, the reasons behind their substance abuse, and the damage they have caused their mind and body through their addiction.

Graduates of the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program have completely healed from their addiction program. They do not take drug substitution medication to enable them to remain sober, they have achieved sobriety all on their own with no use of prescription medication. Graduates do not have to attend meetings, counseling or any other form of continued treatment because they have learned all the skills and tools they need to live the drug-free successful lives they envision for themselves.



My Graduation from Narconon Fresh Start

I had a normal life before drugs. I had the love of my family and close friends, but as I got older we moved around a lot. That made it difficult to make friends as I got older and I never seemed to fit in at any of the schools I attended. At 15 I started smoking pot and drinking to avoid the negative feelings I was struggling with. My drug use eventually progressed to harder drugs like pills and ecstasy. Being surrounded by drug users I was introduced to meth and it was as if I had found the missing piece of the puzzle. Meth became my drug of choice almost immediately and as my addiction progressed it felt like I was a slave to my addiction. There was nothing bright in my future and I truly wanted to stop using. I just couldn’t give it up.

Before Narconon Fresh Start I had been in and out of six other rehab programs. They ranged from inpatient, outpatient, state funded to private. The one thing all these other programs had in common was that they were based on the 12-step model of recovery. The disease concept of addiction just didn’t make sense to me and I struggled to find a way to apply those programs philosophy to my life when I didn’t believe that I had a disease. When I would enter the other drug rehab programs they would set out to diagnose me and begin putting me on antidepressants and other medications. This never addressed the real root of my addiction problem and left me feeling hopeless that I would ever achieve real sobriety.

Enrolling in Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab was entirely different. The atmosphere was welcoming, uplifting and so different than any other program I’d ever attended. They didn’t put me on prescription medications, which was such a relief. During my withdrawal I felt sad and found myself wanting to dwell in the past. The staff members were so kind and kept me from remaining stuck in my head by talking with me and helping me look outside myself to what was presently is going on around me. These exercises, and the ones I latter practiced in the course room helped me to look at my life objectively. I’ve been able to take responsibility for my past which has been a very important part of my recovery from meth. I have gained a sense of control over my life and my future, something that I never had before. Now I can handle life using the skills and tools I learned at Narconon Fresh Start and no longer play the victim in my life.
