Narconon Ojai Graduate with Staff

We are honored to announce another graduate completing the Narconon Program. We have seen the transformation right in front of our eyes and we are so excited for her to begin her journey. This is but the beginning of her new adventure—she has the rest of her life ahead of her. Now that she is armed with the tools to handle what comes her way, we expect to hear about the victories of her battles.

We hope this success story brings inspires and shows that help is possible.

“Coming into this program, I was going to be overconfident, or, I’d sell myself short as of what I would or could accomplish. But I’m very proud of what I’ve overcome. After the detoxification, I do know there are many things to come—past and or present, simple and hard. What I can say is I already feel like a new, better person. The color in my skin is back, my skin is so soft and probably the nicest it’s been. Working construction, I usually have rough hands, so that’s a big win. Anyway, I’m thankful and grateful for what has happened and is to come.

“Doing this course (Overcoming Ups & Downs in Life) definitely opened my eyes and very much helped me see and understand who can be good or bad for me in my life. I never looked at it from this perspective before so that’s cool. I’m grateful for that knowledge and I definitely will apply this and my other courses in my drug-free life.

“Going over my conditions in life and finding out which condition I’m in—let alone having a “plan” to apply the conditions—has made me feel even better as I know how I’m going to make things right, not only for myself but for others too!

“It was hard, satisfying, life-changing work
and I’m so happy I came here.”

“I’m so thankful and happy for all the benefits I’ve gotten from being at Narconon Ojai. I feel healthy. I look great. I feel amazing. It was hard, satisfying, life-changing work and I’m so happy I came here.”

Narconon is a long-term, residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that has been in existence for over 50 years, with facilities throughout the US and abroad. The program’s unique approach starting with a drug-free withdrawal, full detoxification program, and life skills allows the person to fully recover. The length of the program is individualized and is not based on a set amount of time. Rather, the individual can work on the underlying issues at his own pace in a secure, safe environment with built-in support systems.

The average length of the program is 10 weeks. While we offer all the tools the individual will need to lead a drug and alcohol-free life, it is ultimately up to the individual to apply what he has learned. Therefore, we also offer an after-care program to further the support system the individual has and to ensure he has every available opportunity for success.
