Narconon Riverbend of Louisiana Graduates
Several of the graduates talk about what the Narconon alcohol and drug rehab program did for them.
“My addiction to a deadly prescription drug not only caused me health problems, but it was only a matter of time before there would be legal implications. My drug use affected my relationship with my parents, friends, and other people in the community. This program has given me my life back. Narconon really is a New Life Retreat. Not only have I conquered my drug addiction, I have regained many of the skills I lost while using drugs. I have also learned many new skills, such as the ability to confront, control, and communicate…
“Sauna was when things first started to change. I was running and drinking water. I was eating right and putting good things into my body. I started noticing changes in how I felt. My body felt clean and whole again. I felt a new zest for life and the world even looked brighter.” D.D.
“Wow, I can’t believe this time has come! When I first came to Narconon Louisiana, I felt like I was a lost cause. Nobody had respect for me and I didn’t believe in myself. I was closed minded and selfish. I was at the point that happiness was something fictional… By the time I got out of sauna, I actually looked in the mirror and said to myself, ‘I’m becoming the person I want to be and the person I want my family to see’. I was experiencing things that I hadn’t experienced since I was 14 years old. Like, waking up in the mornings and smiling…” K.B.
“I feel like this program has helped way more than just my drug addiction. It helped me get out of a really bad relationship and be able to build friendships with people again...” K.L
“The holidays from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day, when the pressure to drink and party intensifies, can be extremely difficult for the substance abusers and their family.
