Narconon Arrowhead has posted a video online in which Amber, a young woman who completed treatment at the center, shares her experience in the program. She says that when she first arrived at the Arrowhead center, she felt “sad, depressed, alone and very angry.” This is common for people who are just starting out on the process of rehab treatment. After all, they have typically recently experienced some type of life event that brought them to rock bottom, something that was bad enough to give them the motivation to finally quit using drugs and to put their normal lives on hold while they go to rehab for several weeks or months. In some cases, people who show up to rehab are feeling optimistic about the fact that they are now going to make positive changes and hopefully turn their lives around for good, but many people are in the position that Amber found herself in, feeling, upset and depressed about how bad things have gotten in their lives.
What Addiction Did To Narconon Graduate
“I didn’t like anything about myself, or anybody around me,” said Amber.
People who become addicted to drugs can often trace their plight back to a time when they were not feeling good about themselves and turned to drugs as a solution. Maybe they were feeling overwhelmed by stress and pressure in life and were desperate for a way to cope and to escape. Perhaps they started using drugs as a way to fit into a social group. Using drugs, of course, is only a temporary solution for any of these problems. The more that one uses drugs, the less capable he or she becomes of standing up to the pressures of life and to handle the challenges associated with everyday living. Prolonged drug use takes a major toll physically, both from the harmful effects of the drugs and from the fact that drug addicts typically neglect their health. Furthermore, people who use drugs become unreliable and untrustworthy, with the result that their friends and family become wary of depending on them for anything. Personal and familial relationships suffer. This is exactly what had happened with Amber. “I had created horrible effects on my family and my friends. My family didn’t trust me. They were worried about me, scared. My friends didn’t trust me. I withdrew from them, didn’t want to be around my family or my friends.” Given the state of her life at the time when Amber arrived at Narconon Arrowhead, it is not at all surprising that she felt as depressed as she did.
The Changes Through Narconon Arrowhead
“I went through amazing change in the program,” says Amber.
Just as is the case with most of the people who complete the rehab treatment program at Narconon Arrowhead, Amber says that she experienced remarkable changes during her time at the center by the lake in Oklahoma. “I realized that everything I was doing was not who I am. I am a good person, and can do wonderful things.” Narconon clients routinely undergo transformations similar to the one that Amber experienced. Not only do they complete an extensive process of physical detoxification that cleanses their bodies of the accumulated residues of past drug use, but they also receive counseling that helps to bring their attention into present time and increase their awareness and perception of the world around them. Furthermore, Narconon clients study a series of life skills courses that cover topics such as personal values and integrity, ethics, communication, choosing the right people to associate with, and a commonsense moral code for living a life of happiness. The combination of all of these steps of the program produces outstanding results and accounts in large part for the fact that Narconon centers around the world maintain a success rate of around 70 percent. As inspiring as Amber’s story may be, it is entirely normal for Narconon, one of the world’s most effective and powerful drug rehab treatment programs.
