Narconon Ojai Celebrates 57th Anniversary of the Program
In celebration of the 57th anniversary of the Narconon program’s existence, Narconon Ojai took time to acknowledge their dedicated staff members for bringing a much-needed message of hope to families and community members.
The anniversary marks more than half a century of dedicated service by Narconon staff to tens of thousands of individuals, helping them build new lives and restoring them to their families.
To commemorate this anniversary, Narconon Ojai awarded two graduates of the program plaques for reaching milestones in their journey of recovery and sobriety.
Former student body member Jerome Keese stated, “The Narconon program has allowed me to take back my life and not dwell in the past anymore. I’m so grateful for this program which was created to keep your mind and body focused on the task at hand and drug and alcohol free.
“Now that I’m sober I want to inspire artists and people with my music and helping people in the industry learn that you can create art without having to be under the influence and when people ask how am I able to do what I do, I tell them it was from the work I did at Narconon Ojai.”
Khallid Muhammad stated, “The best part of this program is being able to network with different people that go through the same thing you are going through. Now that I’m sober I want to inspire artists and people with my music and helping people in the industry learn that you can create art without having to be under the influence and when people ask how am I able to do what I do, I tell them it was from the work I did at Narconon Ojai.”
Sheriff Fryhoff stated, “What I learned in my several years in law enforcement is that there is so much more than arresting someone for being high on the street. There is so much more story to their life than that. Families that are suffering at home, the trauma they are all going through and their issues they and their families are facing. What I realized is this is a much bigger problem than just arresting someone for being high. That’s part of it, but treatment is a huge part of the solution. Prevention is probably the biggest component. Just say no!! This is the part of the “Just say no” program that most people miss, which is the second part to it—Just say no because it is easier than saying never again. I’m so proud of all the Narconon Ojai students here today because you are a success story.”
