Detox Success Story:
Narconon Program Completion
“I became aware of my addiction when
snorting Oxycontin was not enough anymore, and I began to shoot
it. Prior to that, I participated in recreational drug use since
the age of 14. I went through the progression that one hears about
so often; pot and alcohol, to LSD and ecstasy and cocaine, and ketamine,
pharmaceuticals and then heroin.
“The last years of my heroin addiction
were the scariest times I could ever imagine anyone going through.
I stole, lied, spent most of my day in the pursuit of opiates, and
did all the terrible and pointless things that addicts do. When
it came to the point that I was hiding from my probation officer
and the law, and living either in the woods or in friends’ closets
for weeks, I decided that I needed to get help that would actually
work. I did not want to do another 12 step program that would make
me feel like I would never stop using and my life was just an endless
cycle of relapses.
“I walked home the afternoon of my decision,
and my parents, in a last ditch effort to save the daughter they
once knew, told me to find a program. I went online and filled out
a questionnaire on a site that a friend had referred me to. Within
hours, I received a call from a counselor at Narconon Arrowhead.
Two days later I was in sunny Oklahoma.
“The technology of the NARCONON®
Program is unlike any other and I can’t give enough thanks and gratitude
to my parents and the creator of that technology, Mr. L. Ron Hubbard,
because there is really no other program out there that will change
a tired and hopeless addict into a productive, happy, and sane individual
“Anyone who’s done the Narconon program
could tell you of the carefully laid out steps that guide one to
an ultimately empowered and aware state where one’s life becomes
so much clearer. For me, what’s really done it has been the ongoing
drive to learn more and help others out of similar predicaments.
I am now a staff member at Arrowhead and my whole life has changed.
I am a respected and mature adult, with a family who believes in
me again. I am married to a moral and upstanding man and work doing
the most important and rewarding job in the world. I am healthy
and clear about my future, and though I do not like the things that
I did in my past, I have taken the steps to clear my conscience
and make up the damage I have done to my loved ones so that I could
learn and grow from these misdeeds. I do not know of any other program
that helps someone do that.
“For anyone out there that is struggling
with addiction and wants to be free, for anyone who has a loved
one or a neighbor or friend that needs a permanent solution, there
is a program that will help once and for all.”
