From Narconon Alfiere in Italy comes this lovely and heartfelt statement of accomplishment on the Narconon drug rehab program.
“When I started this program, I was fearful and worried. With the help of the staff and every single person here who supported me, I began to overcome my fears.
“The greatest fear that weighed on me like a boulder was that I would want to quit drugs and not be able to do it. Some small part of me still felt the power addiction had over me. At the most unexpected moment came the realization that I did not need the stuff to be happy. It makes us slaves and consequently we’re like leaves blowing in the wind. Being addicted to something is not living, but being a slave. Drugs put us behind invisible bars and deprives an addicted person of the most beautiful thing in the world: freedom.
“Being able to get up in the morning, look in the mirror and say ‘I have it made’ is priceless. Being able to appreciate the little things that everyday life offers us together with the affection of our loved ones is priceless. Life is worth living but this is not possible if you are in chains.
“Today, I finally got back what I was and I am proud of myself because I live for me and for my loved ones. In short, today I am finally happy because today, I’m beginning to live.”
Narconon Alfiere is located on the eastern coast of Italy, just a stone’s throw from the Adriatic Sea. From all over Italy, the addicted come here to get their lives back.
