I Am Proud to Look in the Mirror Again

If you are struggling to overcome an addiction, no one needs to tell you it’s tough—you are living it. Sometimes you could use a few encouraging words to remind you that you are not in this alone and that change is possible. This is a success story from one of our students that just graduated.

“I really appreciate the Narconon program and what it has done to change my life. Before entering the program I felt lost, broken, and unable to face life’s obstacles. When I first started the program I thought I would never see the light at the end of the tunnel. I could not think clearly and my thoughts were completely stuck in the past, dwelling on the mistakes I had made.

“Every day that passed I started to feel better
about myself and who I was.”

“There were many times I wanted to give up and the staff here at Narconon Ojai were amazing, helping me through one of the toughest times of my life. After the new life detoxification program, I had more energy, enthusiasm, and my head was clear for the first time in many years. Every day that passed I started to feel better about myself and who I was.

“If I hadn’t come here, I probably would have been dead by now. I owe it to Narconon for helping save my life. The program helped me feel prideful and honorable for the things I have accomplished and I do not dwell on my mistakes anymore. I am proud to look in the mirror again. The feeling is amazing!
