Drug Rehabilitation - Success Story
Alan, one of our Graduates, says:
"Oh my god - I've done it!
It just seems like yesterday that I walked through reception for the first time. Right - here we go, this is a story of all of my wins from coming off heroin and crack at Narconon.
Well it took a couple of weeks and a few calls from Ali and Charles to finally get me here on February 16th. I really wanted to come here but I had to have one last battle with drugs if you know what I mean.
When I arrived with my mum, travelling well over 600 miles, I wanted to get in the door and bring on the withdrawal symptoms. We were greeted by Ali and she whisked me up to withdrawals where I met the withdrawal specialist. As I had managed to stuff as much heroin and crack in my veins before coming here, I managed to sleep for 16 hours straight.
When I woke up, the "In the post" feeling of heroin withdrawal was firmly fixed and I was under attack. That day was terrible, but it was quickly made better by the arrival of Lewis late on the Saturday night.
We both had a tough time but we made each other laugh and got each other through our withdrawals. A very special thanks is needed to Dan and Sheena for sticking by us 100% of the time up there.
I was unleashed downstairs 8 days later into the masses known as students. I went straight into Book 1 which taught me many things like patience and control. Then it was straight to the sauna, where I sweated for 30 long days with Lewis, Finbar, Sam, Gemma, Zoey, Aidan, Darren, Graham H and Graeme C. I grew a close bond with Finbar, Sam and Lewis who I had an unbelievable laugh with.
I also grew very close to Aidan with whom I shared a room with for almost 5 of my 6 and a half months here. This guy is second to none and we used to wait till the lights went out and he would joke and laugh every night without fail.
When I got out the sauna I completed book 3 and did my TR's again with Lewis, which was so fun. I couldn't have done this with a funnier person. Then it was the almighty objectives (book 4). My twin Lewis and I battered through this journey of betterment and self-realisation and I was then twinned up with some blond haired chick from Hertfordshire called Sam.
We were already great friends and we literally had a blast finishing off our objectives even though we were always arguing. We have remained twins till the end and I know I have a friend for life there. She is brilliant as was my other twin Lewis.
Books 6, 7 and 8 hold a lot of very valuable information which you will all learn in time, but believe me when I say you will need this info to assist in your battle to stay drug free.
I am now going to work here assisting Dale to get more students into the building which will make me very proud to do.
Doing this course has changed me from the wreck I was when I came in physically and mentally. I know what I did before coming here destroyed my life and my families life but I feel I have dealt with that now and I can now move on.
I am going to thank Matt who couldn't be here but he helped me through all of my course and I am in great debt to the man. Thank you.
But just to brief it off. Thank you staff and students and my mum for all your hard work making me the person I am today. I couldn't have done it without each and every one of you.
It's all about results!
