Stopping Prescription Abuse
The Narconon program has completely changed my life. At the age of 20, I was put on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication by a psychiatrist. As time progressed, my depression and anxiety actually got worse as a result of the medication I became addicted to my anti-anxiety medication and couldn’t function without it. I had panic attacks almost daily and it was a really hopeless feeling knowing that I would have to be on this medication for the rest of my life.
At the age of 26, I entered the Narconon program, and I was completely amazed by what I saw. Every week, Narconon has a graduation ceremony that all of the students of the program attend. When I listened to the graduates give their speeches, I was absolutely blown away. The amount of compassion and gratitude that these people expressed for this program was absolutely remarkable, and I knew that this program was different than anything that I had ever expected. The technology I learned at Narconon has enabled me to become a better person in so many ways. I have learned so much about myself, and I have grown so much as a person.
I Have Control Over My Anxiety
Among many other things, I now have control over my anxiety, and I know that I will never have to be on medication again. My family notices such a change in me, and I know I am such a better daughter,wife, and mother. I have a new start on life, and for that I will be forever thankful to Narconon and all the staff!”
