“A year ago I was in a jail cell, strung out on heroin, meth and alcohol. I had lost everything; jobs, homes, family, but most of all I had lost myself and my will to live. In fact, the only reason I was still alive was because I was arrested and put in jail. I was facing a 2 year prison sentence.
“I was bailed out by my father who put me in a cab and told me that I was going to a rehab. I arrived at the airport where I met my interventionist who guided me all the way to Narconon Redwood Cliffs. I will never forget that day. He gave me hope when I had none.
“As I look back on this past year, I am truly amazed at all that I have accomplished. I used to use drugs to numb pain, to numb my feelings, to numb life. Narconon has taught me to deal with situations head on and gave me the courage to face them. I now set goals and I complete them. I have a home and an amazing family that loves me as I love them. I went to court to deal with all the wreckage from my past and I got through it. Facing it wasn’t nearly as bad as I imagined it to be when I was strung out.
“I lost my father to cancer about a month after graduating from the Narconon program. I received overwhelming support from the Redwood Cliffs staff and I still do to this day. They still help me through the darkest of times and I consider them my friends and my family. I cannot thank them enough.
“I am happy, joyous, and drug free and this past year I thoroughly enjoyed discovering me again. Thank you so much Narconon for giving me hope when I had none and helping me get my life back. Sincerely, a new drug-free me.”
