NARCONON SUCCESS STORY
I’m telling my story as I hope it inspires others to reach the goal of a happy and drug-free life, which is where I’m at now in my life.
It’s been 3 years since graduating from Narconon, Ojai. I am thankful everyday to the staff for the tremendous jobs that they do. I am also thankful for my wife and family who have stuck by me through this entire process.
The Narconon program helped me believe in myself again. I know that whatever I go through in life, whether it’s good or bad, at the end of the day I know I’m making something of myself and no one can take away my happiness but me.
Denny as child I was born in Texas and raised all over America and parts of western Europe. My father was Air Force, so we moved around quite a bit. For the most part, it was a good life, full and rich with lots of love and comfort.
Then, my parents reached out to Narconon in an 11th hour attempt to save me from myself. There were tears, fights and emotional appeals for me to give Narconon a chance. My response to their pleas was that I would rather die than try rehab again. So why did I go?
“Looking at the difference between the photo of me before I came to Narconon Ojai and the photo of me today made me realize how far I've come in such a short period of time. It made me remember the dark place I was in before coming here…“
The holidays were always a very difficult time of the year for me. I lost my best friend on Thanksgiving Day due to a heroin overdose and almost immediately after he passed I tried heroin for the first time.
