Thanks Narconon Arrowhead Staff

 “I would like to put on paper my feelings at this time on what I’ve been through and what I am going through. I feel as though, to a degree I am in a state of confusion because of my recent transformation from a lower primate to a higher man. The change has been a painful one in as much as having to give up all the things that I’ve been used to doing for 30 years of my addiction. For the first time I am now truly clean and drug-free. Something I haven’t been for 30 years. All my excuses have been stripped from me. I am now capable of receiving, and applying new ways of living a good and prosperous life. I am one again.”

  “Thanks Narconon Arrowhead Staff.”

I Lost Who I Was

 “When I took that 1st drink at 7, I was escaping from a physically, mentally and emotionally abusive environment but I also lost who I was. When I came to Narconon Arrowhead I had no idea who I was. I found myself here and that is a wonderful gift. I now help other people get out of the fog, haze and destruction of substance abuse. People don’t have to be lost from themselves or from others. There really is no escape from reality. Anyone can have what I have today. They can have themselves back. Instead of being at the effect of everything going on around them, they can make the necessary changes to make their lives better by coming to Narconon Arrowhead.

  If you or someone you love has a problem with drugs or alcohol, please call. The Narconon program can save that life and give that person a new awareness of themselves.”

Thanks for the Life

 “I was drinking heavily and doing a lot of cocaine, but because I was able to “function” I didn’t think I had a problem. During this time I was mentally and emotionally dead. I couldn’t feel things anymore and even when I wanted to feel something I didn’t have the proper reactions to situations. I was dying. My body was deteriorating rapidly and I was very sick frequently. The drugs and alcohol were killing me. You see, I did want to die, the greatest way to not deal with anything is to die, and that is the drug addict’s ultimate dream, but something kept pulling me back; after I ended up in the hospital after a blackout I did stop once for 8 months, I went through pure unadulterated hell from the withdrawal which lasted about a month. Afterwards, I would still crave the drugs and alcohol. It was madness. I couldn’t stop thinking or dreaming about them. I went to meetings during this time and then I started to drink after the meetings, then I progressed to using the drugs again, mostly cocaine. My sponsor once told me ‘It ‘s OK you ‘re not ready to quit yet SO if you have to drink, then drink, and when you are ready to quit you will know it. You may just have to go down further before you make the decision to stop.’ I thought it was a bunch of garbage because everyday I did want to quit but I couldn’t.

  I went to a chiropractic seminar and they talked about the Narconon® program. I took a pamphlet with Kirstie Alley’s picture on it and called. I asked for information and then I didn’t think about it, until that July 4th weekend. I went on a binge from July 2 to the early hours of July 5th and I realized that I did have a major problem. I called Narconon Arrowhead and was there 72 hours later.

  I was looking forward to the sauna because I wanted all the alcohol, drugs and residues out of my body. I wanted to feel clean again instead of feeling sick all of the time. I went into the sauna with cloudy eyes, feeling sick all the time and no energy. I came out a new born. I thought it couldn’t get any better. I was wrong…. the life skill courses here at Narconon Arrowhead really enable you to take control of your life, actions and environment. You make the decisions for yourself without ever having to justify another thing.”

I Won’t Go Back to Where I Have Been

“I would like to thank the staff here at Narconon Arrowhead for helping me and having faith in me. Everyone was a lot of help. The staff always kept me on my toes and helped me push, push, push until sometimes I felt I couldn’t push any more (I was wrong). It’s hard for me to think about where I came from, you would have to live it to understand. I don’t know where I am going to go in life but I know I won’t go back to where I have been. That’s behind me now. I’ve come too far to go back and besides I like, or should I say love being drug-free!!”

Nothing Short of Life-Saving

“Hi. My name is Tom. Three months ago I arrived at Narconon Arrowhead with what seemed at the time only a glimmer of hope. After twenty years of heroin and methadone addiction, countless efforts of attempted help that failed, happiness as a drug free person seemed as likely as hitting the lottery at five million to one. As overwhelming as it seemed, I couldn’t bring myself to accept the alternatives; death or prison. Not without exhausting all possible solutions. Somehow I still cherished the thought of drug free existence. Happiness had its price and upon arriving at Narconon Arrowhead I’d decided if I could, if it was possible, I’d make a real, genuine effort. Then, after being exposed to the loving, caring and committed staff members at Narconon Arrowhead, my commitment became “I can”, and “I will”. And sure enough, three months later I am drug free and in control of my life for the first time in my adult life. Five weeks from today I’ll be thirty-eight years old, with a future as a happy, drug free member of society to look forward to. What appeared impossible became a reality. My purpose as a person has been revealed. Today I can accept responsibility for my past, no longer afraid of my future, and I am wanting and willing to help my fellow man.

The time spent at Narconon Arrowhead has been nothing short of life-saving. The Narconon® program and the people who delivered it, words like amazing, unbelievable and spectacular can’t begin to do them justice.

The Narconon program works and anyone that recognizes the threat drugs pose to our society and planet must support the efforts of Narconon Arrowhead and staff – they deliver.”

  Most Sincerely,
  Tom P.
