Narconon Meetings

May 16th, 2011

Get Help With Drug Addiction

There is a need for clarification about the Narconon program, and whether there are Narconon meetings. The confusion seems to be in the spelling, and is purely coincidental. Narconon is an entire rehabilitation program which provides detoxification and teaches life skills that enable addicts to return to society and be fully functional with the tools which they have learned. The support meetings which are provided for family and friends of addicts are called “Nar-Anon”. The two have the same sound, but they are completely different things.

Narconon is an entire rehabilitation program which provides detoxification and teaches life skills that enable addicts to return to society and be fully functional with the tools which they have learned.

NarcAnon is actually a misspelling. The groups are often referred to by this name, but it is supposed to be “NarAnon” or “Nar-Anon”. Also to consider is Narcotics Anonymous, they commonly refers to themselves as NA. The organization is designed after the 12 step program offered through Alcoholics Anonymous. Narcotics Anonymous and Nar-Anon believes that drug addiction is a disease which must be treated as such (often through the use of other drugs). This is in sharp contrast to the Narconon natural rehabilitation program.

Narconon is a global set of rehabilitation and drug education centers that provide long-term rehab. Their goal is to provide the life-saving tools needed to turn away from drug addiction and lead happy and productive lives. There are no Narconon meetings, as such. Narconon is NOT a 12 step program, and does not believe that drug addiction is a disease which must be suffered through. Rather, Narconon believes that addicts have the power and can learn the skills needed to turn away from drugs forever.

The only thing that resembles Narconon meetings would be the classes that occur within the rehabilitation program itself. Again, these should not be confused with Nar-Anon support meetings or NA meetings. There is absolutely no connection between Narconon (which means Narcotics None) Nar-Anon and Narcotics Anonymous. Narconon provides classes that identify lifestyles and attitudes, including dysfunctions, which can trigger drug abuse. They also educate the students on how to change their way of thinking and acting to one more productive and healthy.

“Narconon meetings” simply do not exist outside of the rehabilitation center. After-care is available following the graduation from the program, but they are not referred to as Narconon meetings. Nar-Anon (mispelled: NarcAnon) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) does have meetings which are ongoing. In fact, many people continue to attend these meetings for years and some attend the rest of their lives.

Narconon believes that with the proper skills, addiction can be beaten. For this reason, Narconon ongoing meetings are not required. In the event of a relapse, rehabilitation is repeated. Relapses do happen, but they are rare with Narconon. In fact, they have a 3 out of 4 average success rate at their rehab centers. Graduates are always welcome to contact Narconon for support as well. While there are no such things as Narconon meetings, emotional and educational support is always available.

So many people mistakenly refer to Narcotics Anonymous or Nar-Anon as “NarcAnon”, that they confuse it with Narconon. Since these three terms sound alike, some think they are the same entity, which they are not. There are Nar-Anon meetings and NA meetings, but not Narconon Meetings.

Deadly Combination of Factors Drives Up Adolescent Use of Marijuana, Ecstasy and Alcohol

April 21st, 2011

Narconon® Drug Prevention Specialists say teens desperately need information to help them abstain from drug use

There has been a radical change in how drugs are perceived by American adolescents, which has caught some educators and parents off guard. The study was conducted by the Partnership at Drugfree.org (formerly the Partnership for a Drug Free America). The prestigious organization has released the 22nd in a series of annual surveys involving 2,500 high school students in the United States.

Veteran drug prevention specialist Bobby Wiggins at Narconon International says the results of the survey are not surprising. “If drug prevention is not pushed aggressively and consistently, if teens and preteens are not advised of the factual dangers of using drugs, the likelihood that young people will fall prey to drugs before they reach adulthood is substantially increased as we have seen by this report.”

Overall teenage use of drugs and alcohol declined from 1998 to 2008. However, even during that time, the use of ecstasy and marijuana rose. At the same time, the percentage of teens claiming they drink to combat stress also rose.

Wiggins says that kids today are more inclined to encourage their peers to do drugs because they believe they are not harmful. At the top of their “not harmful list of drugs” are no surprise, alcohol, ecstasy and cannabis.

One in four teens smoked marijuana between 2008 and 2010 - an increase of seven per cent. The use of ecstasy in the past year rose from six to 10 per cent. Almost 50 per cent of high school students did not view heavy drinking as a “great risk.” Six in ten said they had their first full alcoholic drink by age 15. One in five claim they drink because of school stress.

Slightly better news – there’s been little evidence of relaxing attitudes regarding methamphetamines, cocaine or heroin amongst those surveyed.“ Overall, teens are wary of drugs they believe are addicting; but it is wishful thinking that this will protect them once they engage in drug use,” says Wiggins. “
The survey also found that parents feel unprepared to respond to underage drinking by their children and almost a third felt there is very little parents can do to prevent their kids from trying alcohol.

“We know that when we give teens straight information about drugs and alcohol they are far more inclined to make the decision to stay drug and alcohol free. But if they lack vital information about drugs and their effects, they are extremely vulnerable to invitations to use drugs,” says Wiggins.
Narconon’s experts urge parents and educators to renew commitment to drug prevention education. Narconon drug education presentations have resulted in drastic change in the attitudes of teens and preteens toward drug taking. For those who have already gotten caught in the trap, Narconon Drug Rehabilitation Centers can help young people get back on track. “It is a terrible thing to stand by while your child’s life unravels because of drugs,” says Wiggins,”It doesn’t have to happen.”

Taking Charge of One’s Life Is the Fastest Route to Drug-Free Living

April 5th, 2011

A continued debate in the field of addiction treatment is how to view substance dependent people. In 2007 the debate escalated to the Congressional floor when then Senator, Joseph Biden, proposed legislation to change the name of the National Institute on Drug Abuse to the National Institute on Diseases of Addiction and the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism to the National Institute on Alcohol disorders and Health.

The legislation did not pass, but it sent a strong message to the substance abuse field that treatment centers should adopt a disease model. However, the success rates of centers that have done so do not necessarily demonstrate betterment in the ability of treatment centers to help addicts. Also, the risks that arise when prescribed drugs used for treatment end up on the street are a serious problem. “Street methadone,” methadone obtained outside of treatment, is recognized as posing far more risk of overdose than the opium-based drugs it was developed to treat.

Seventy five years ago, addiction was rarely if ever viewed as a disease. For example, the British Journal of Inebriety (Alcoholism and Drug Addiction) July 1933 published an article by one E. W. Adams, O.B.E., M.D. regarding addiction. Dr. Adams stated that alcoholics and drug addicts “seek means to make reality less real.” He elaborated: “The average drug addict does not accept the universe. He is on the run from reality. He is a person who, could he have been asked beforehand whether he was willing to be a candidate for life with all its responsibilities and duties, would have replied in the phrase of Calvin Coolidge: “I do not choose to run.”

Despite any ongoing debate, the Narconon® program has consistently stuck with a methodology that has proven highly successful. It helps addicts to sort out their lives so that they can live successfully without drugs and be happy. On the other hand, programs that define addiction as disease often have a poor success rate and relegate the multiple relapses to addiction as an expected part of the treatment process as episodes that indicate a need for an adjustment in the treatment program.

“In the field of drug treatment, we do not find that informing an addict that his condition is disease related benefits him anymore than dissuading him that his condition is not a disease is necessary,” Bobby Wiggins, Drug Education and Prevention Specialist, Narconon International. “The simplicity is that an addict needs to gain control of his own life, or the need for drugs will persist. The hard part remains starting the addict on this path, because the last aspect of reality that an addicted person can grasp is that life is livable without his drug of choice,” Wiggins says. Fortunately for the addict, addiction can be successfully resolved.

The Culture of Ecstasy

April 1st, 2011

Drug Prevention Experts at Narconon International Reveal New Insights into the Rave Culture and the Drug that Drives it.

As discussion goes forward on whether or not raves should be prevented from using public venues in California (AB 74, the “Anti Raves Act of 2011),” Narconon® Drug prevention expert, Bobby Wiggins, offers insight into the relationship between the techno music of raves and the drug ecstasy which has been associated with it.

By consulting social media, blogs online videos, pictures and comments posted by ravers, those who attend the techno music events, you can find out all you need to know about the role that the drug ecstasy (or E or X) plays in their world. “These viral data sources cover the here and now; and consequently are a true barometer of the rave scene as it happens,” Wiggins says.

What do they tell us? First, they affirm that ravers know “ecstasy” is illegal. They know that it is an illegal drug action can be taken against anyone who sells, possesses, makes or uses it in violation of the law.

They also show that without the breakout of fights, police are reluctant to intervene. As an example, British police who were sent to close down a rave held in London in an abandoned postal building involving thousands of ravers and as many as 200 DJs in the heart of the city claimed they “held back because they did not want to cause trouble.” One officer said: “We’re hoping people will get tired and go home. . . . It was ‘more trouble than it’s worth’ to cause a confrontation between police and party goers.” It explains why California law enforcement officers are reluctant to arrest lawbreakers at raves.

Likewise we find that ravers feel justified in protesting law enforcement intervention, because “no one is hurting anyone.” But attempts to legalize the drug are not in the offing due to freak overdoses and deaths which increase in direct ratio with the drug’s popularity – deaths that are perhaps even more likely to occur to a first-time user as someone who has “rolled” (gotten high on ecstasy) a hundred times.

Discussion boards show that ravers see themselves as loyal subjects of their culture. Their loyalty is to “the massive tribal family that celebrates with me.” The music is the relevant topic, but what transpires at raves is, in a word, childish. This is odd, since promoters seeking to stay in business have resorted to requiring attendees are 18+ years, hoping to absolve them from responsibility for deaths that can occur.

Then, of course, there is considerable evidence backing up that ecstasy, itself addictive, can and often does lead to use of stronger and even more self-destructive stimulants such as the Amphetamines. But hindsight is too late to help the entrapped addict then.

In response to our analysis, Wiggins says, “No child is born with a personality that makes them need drugs. But unless they feel prepared to make their way in the world, their chances of being happy without drugs are greatly diminished. Narconon has helped tens of thousands of people of all ages to develop missing life skills necessary to drug-free living. Once they are thus self-empowered, the drug dependent can choose to be drug-free and successfully, happily live.”

Narconon Drug Rehab Completion - Students’ Perspectives

February 8th, 2011

Narconon Drug Rehab program completion

You better believe that there are a lot of tears of joy on the day students complete the Narconon drug rehab program.

Watching students come into the Narconon drug rehab program hopeless and with a chip on their shoulder grow into such a caring and hopeful individual is such a burst of heart warming emotions.

You just never could have guessed that the guys who came into the drug rehab program in the beginning are the same guys leaving.

It goes to show you how much of a harmful impact drugs have on a person and their life. Once you get the drugs out of their system and give them tools they can use to succeed, they just want to do all the right things to the best of their ability and save everyone else’s life while they’re at it.

You can get a sense of their hope and willingness in their stories they write before leaving to go home.

This section of the program helps give students an overall picture of what awaits them when they go back home. A strategic plan of actions is developed for specific steps to take with family, friends, etc, in order to reconstruct a healthy, ethical, constructive life. Narconon drug rehab staff maintain close contact to help monitor stability of program result.

Let’s read what students had to say about completing the Narconon drug rehab program.

 


"I have completed the Narconon Program!  I don’t know what I can say that I haven’t already said.  When I arrived here, I was unhappy, discouraged and felt like I was in a hole I would never be able to get out of.  Today, I am healthy, happy and confident that I can accomplish whatever I choose.  Narconon is full of staff who truly care about the students and possess an ability to heal people like nowhere I have ever been.  I want to thank all of the staff for giving me back the ability to take responsibility for my life." 

TM

 


"I have my life back again and I can be who I was before the drugs!  I have the ability to get trust back.  I have a new start on my life.  I feel really good about myself." 

DS

 


"Not only am I free from addiction, but this program is helping me become a better person with each passing day." 

RC

 


"Today, I am 49-years-old.  I am sober.  I am happier than I have ever been.  My spirit is soaring far above my expectations.  I am still learning." 

HM

 


"When I got here, I hated everyone and everything, including myself.  I was at the point where I had no hope for anything, no faith in myself and I thought I was just destined to die as a junkie.  After I was in sauna and the drugs were coming out, I got a glimmer of hope.  I started feeling better and my outlook was improving.  I know that I can have a successful, sober life and I’m extremely excited to get on with my new life.  Thank you!" 

KK

 


"When I started the program I was very nervous.  I didn’t know anyone, but everybody in withdrawal was very nice and helpful.  After I got out of withdrawal, I was put into book one where I met Cathy.  She was very welcoming and warm.  I learned how to confront myself and other people, which I had a problem doing before.  Sauna was great.  It cleared my body out and I felt like a new person after completing it.  Book 3 taught me how to study again and really retain the material that I studied.  I will use it for the rest of my life and I will teach it to my daughter so she will be able to get through school and retain the material she learns.  Books 4a and 4b both were great.  The exercises helped me get out of my head and into present time and not think of the past.  It also let me help someone else with their problems of the past and get them through it.  Book 5 was a great book.  It helped me realize which people I want to stay away from and the people I want to be around.  In book 6, I learned that I need to take responsibility for my actions.  I also learned about the eight dynamics and how they apply to me.  In book 7 I learned about conditions in life and how to see those conditions and use the formulas to fix those conditions and move up in a condition.  Book 8 has shown me how to flourish and prosper.  I am ready to start my new life, thanks to Narconon." 

JF

 


"I feel wonderful.  The knowledge that I now have will not only help me to stay drug and alcohol free, but will help me in all aspects of life.  I really appreciate the time and effort that everyone here puts into their work.  You guys are great.  I now have confidence and reassurance that I will live a happy, prosperous, productive life now that I’m going home to be with my children." 

KM

 


"I am my own success story today.  I realized I am at peace and comfortable with who I am.  I have been given a chance to start my life again.  My biggest win is that I have the will to be alive.  I have the will to be happy and successful.  I no longer want to have my life end at a young age.  I am happy and I am successful right now, just because I am here, healthy and drug-free." 

JB

 


"I have my life back, thanks to Narconon." 

JF

Narconon The Way To Happiness Course - Narconon Drug Rehab Students’ Perspectives

January 27th, 2011

Narconon Drug Rehab The Way To Happiness Course

Here we are towards the last section of the Narconon drug rehab program. This part of the rehab program introduces students to a code of moral conduct and values to live by in order to obtain and maintain maximum happiness for themselves and the others around them.

The tools learned on this part of the Narconon drug rehab program will help get students doing what is right for the greater good for all concerned.

Students will start to recognize their old value system and establish a sense of new values to operate on.

Here’s what some students had to say about this part of the Narconon drug rehab program.


"Book 8 was helpful because it gave me exact things I could do to achieve happiness.  What I gained the most from it was the virtues.  If I practice each one, the people I come in contact with will be happy and this will make me happy." 

KD


"I feel great.  I am half way finished with book 8 and I can see the bright light of success at the end of the tunnel.  I have never felt this capable and confident in my life.  I feel I have all the skill and hours of practice with them to be a high quality, valuable product of this program.  I am to take my success to the next level by helping people realize their capabilities when drugs are out of the picture." 

RW

 


"I am on book 8 and feel that I had a very successful day.  The more I thought about it, I realized my days have become productive.  I care about what I produce.  Before I came here, production didn’t matter to me.  Production of any kind drained me.  Now, it makes me feel good.  I am happy when I put out a lot in a day.  Not only can I produce, now I am helping and encouraging others to produce." 

KG

 


"I feel empowered upon completing book 8.  I know I have all the skills and knowledge I need to live a productive, drug-free life.  I have never felt this good on the inside about myself and I have never been this healthy on the outside.  Narconon has given me my life back and I am very grateful.  I am a new person with drive, ambition and a new-found confidence.  I am ready to take on the world!" 

RW

 


"I have completed book 8, “The Way to Happiness.”  I found this book to be full of common sense answers to living a better, more fulfilling life, but also it touched on what I found to be much deeper answers to the problems we face as a society today.  I plan to keep this book with me at all times and read it when I am looking for inspiration and hope.  Sometimes we forget the basics which can lead us to a spiraling path of destruction.  This book will prevent that from happening to me." 

TM

 


"I have now completed the last course of the program.  I have worked the program to the best of my ability.  I feel confident that I can apply this knowledge and live a drug-free and happy life." 

RC

 


With all of the tools that students learn to apply on the Narconon drug rehab program, there’s no reason that they can’t succeed and continue to live a life without drugs. Anyone can do it. You just have to do it.

Narconon Changing Conditions in Life Course - Narconon Drug Rehab Students’ Perspectives

January 25th, 2011

Narconon Drug Rehab Changing Conditions in Life Course

Ever wondered how you got yourself into a rut or how to get yourself out of a rut? How about how to reach and maintain a goal or what keeps you from reaching your goals? Sometimes we can get ourselves into something that seems impossible to get out of. We can even breeze through something that we enjoy and the next thing you know it’s gone. So how do you avoid getting into an undesired situation or how do you get out of a mess that you got yourself into or how do you not loose what you’ve already gained?

That’s what this next course on the Narconon drug rehab program is all about. Helping students recognize the condition they’re in, how they got there and how to take it a step further in the right direction for improvement.

It’s an important factor for students once they complete the Narconon drug rehab program and get into the world. Some students have to start from scratch and establish some goals and work out how they will achieve their goals. Others may have to go right back into a mess and fix what they might have gotten their self into.

This course couldn’t be more perfect for helping students understand the necessary actions needed for working their way to success.

Let’s see what some of the Narconon students had to say.

 


"I feel like a new person after working through my conditions in book 7.  I repaired many of my past conditions that have always weighed on my mind.  I know that I have become cause over effect on all of my past issues.  Book 7 has been the best book of the program to me.  It has given formulas to live my life successfully and be the best I can be." 

RW

 


"My conditions and my dynamics have been so out of “sync,” but since I have been at Narconon and understanding the technology, I realize I am in great shape now and will continue to work on improving my conditions.  It is a win for me to know I was not an evil person in the past.  I was a daughter, a good, great daughter who cared about my family and others, a daughter who was loving, kind and giving.  I am a daughter, sister and a trustworthy friend, now."  DS

 


"Book 7 is really important for me.  I had so many wins.  I learned how I am in a condition at any given time.  More importantly, I learned how to move up in conditions.  Doubt was a condition I was always in and I feel more secure learning how to work it out.  I feel I raised my conditions and knowing my dynamics made me realize what makes up me.  I feel whole again." 

EB

 


"Book 7 has given me a road map to follow.  It will guide me and help me detect my conditions in dynamics.  I have the knowledge to live abundantly and to do that, I have to give abundantly.  I love life!" 

HM

Narconon Personal Values and Integrity Course - Narconon Drug Rehab Students’ Perspectives

January 24th, 2011

You could probably say that there is some good in all of us. Same goes with the Narconon students who come through the Narconon drug rehab program. Even though they’ve used drugs and did whatever Narconon Drug Rehab Personal Values and Integrity Coursethey did, they have some remorse for their past actions.

This next course on the Narconon drug rehab program is going to help students examine and take full responsibility for all of their past misdeeds. Whether their actions were intentional or unintentional, students are to look at what they’ve done and see how it has hurt others and themselves.

By doing so, students will start to regroup their personal values and build up their integrity and get a real sense of their own moral standards they should live by.

Take a look at what some of these students have said about this section of the Narconon drug rehab program.

 


"I have taken responsibility for what I have done.  I see where I was wrong.  I no longer blame others for my mistakes.  My headaches are gone.  I feel a lot better." 

KD

 


"It feels really good to take responsibility for my life, to become a responsible human being.  I have many blessings in my life, I appreciate that now.  When I came to Narconon I felt separated from my spirit, my family and from God.  Now that I have confronted myself and dealt with the things that were weighing me down, I feel close to life again.  I feel a sense of peace and forgiveness!" 

DS

 


"I got some things off my chest and out of my head that were bothering me.  I feel relief now that I have written them.  I would like to thank my course supervisors for their help.  I feel much better knowing that I am done with that part of my life.  I can now move on." 

LS

 


"It feels great to get all of those bad things that I have done in my past out and put them down on paper.  I now feel like I can put all of this stuff behind me and look forward and getting on with my life.  After I got them all out and on paper, I felt relieved.  I had some great wins doing this." 

JS

 


"It is great to look at everything I’ve done and see it for what it is and finally take responsibility for it.  In doing that I realized something.  Nobody put a gun to my head and made me do those things.  I did those things because I chose to and now I know I don’t ever have to go through any of those things again." 

KK

 


"Now that I have completed this part of the program, I am so happy I took responsibility for my actions and did it honestly.  I had great wins in book 6, especially knowing how to make ethical decisions.  I feel a great sense of accomplishment." 

EB

 


Pretty outstanding. These guys can finaly live without constantly feeling weighed down with all of their past experiences. It’s like their slate has been wiped clean for them to start a new life.

Narconon Ups and Downs Course - Narconon Drug Rehab Students’ Perspectives

January 21st, 2011

Narconon Drug Rehab Ups and Downs in Life

How do you know who wants to help you succeed or who wants to see you fall? Who’s for you and who’s against you?

Sometimes these people are pretty obvious, but how do you know for sure?

There are a lot of students who have come through the Narconon ® drug rehab program who said they were just with the wrong people at the wrong time. Of course that doesn’t justify anyone’s actions, but what if you knew how to spot if someone is a good or bad influence for you?

That’s what this next section of the Narconon drug rehab program is all about. Helping students spot constructive and destructive personality types.

This can help students to select helpful friends so that they can establish a more stable and secure environment. It’s important to be around people who want the best for you when you’re trying to do your best.

Here’s how some of the Narconon students feel about it.


"Book 5 was an amazing book.  It opened my eyes to so much and made me realize how I was affected in the past by suppressive people and didn’t know it.  I have disconnected from these people and now know what kind of people I want to surround myself with, positive, social and people with personalities. 

I also know now how to handle these types of suppressive people and I am able to recognize the good from the bad ones.  I am very grateful."

"I really got a lot of great knowledge out of the “Ups and Downs in Life” course.  I am aware and will use the data and apply it to my daily life.  Being aware of anti-social personalities will prevent certain conditions from occurring. 

I am happy and will use this knowledge for the betterment of myself and others." 

DH

 


"This book 5 has been eye opening.  I feel confident I can recognize and deal with suppression which is what got me here in the first place.  I love my life." 

HM

 


"Book 5 gave me a great insight to the people I need to disconnect from and how to identify people in my life that will be healthy for me!  It feels great to know I have this tool added to my arsenal in my recovery." 

JC

 


“The "Ups and Downs in Life" course was really sound knowledge because I have a lot of suppressive people in my life.  I never knew it before, but now I can pick out theses suppressive people and be able to handle them or disconnect from them in order to better my life and be happy." 

TC

 


"I attested to book 5 today.  It felt really good to gain an understanding of the technology.  I am able to recognize anti-social personalities from social personalities by their ability to help and their actions. 

This will help me fill my life with people who will help me build things up and to stay away from suppressive types who tear things down." 

SS

 


"I have completed book 5 and now know how to spot the anti-social personalities from the social personalities.  This will help me to not fall into a potential trouble source condition and it will help to better me in my present time environment." 

SS

 


"I completed book 5 today.  I learned about many people who are capable of bringing me down.  I became more aware of trouble areas.  Also, it is a holiday and it doesn’t bother me one bit to be here.  My family is already treating me the way I hoped for.  I can hardly wait to get home and live a positive future."

Narconon Communication and Perception Course - Narconon Drug Rehab Students’ Perspectives

January 20th, 2011

Narconon Drug Rehab Communication and Perception

Once a student completes this section of the program, the student’s ability to get into full communication with others and his environment doesn’t seem impossible anymore. A student’s communication skills really get polished up on this particular course and the student fully gets his attention off of himself and onto the environment. This greatly raises the student’s perception and ability to handle the environment and control his life.

Here’s what some Narconon drug rehab students had to say about it.

 


"I feel wonderful just doing things right here and now, hearing, seeing, touching and communicating to myself and others, helping myself by being active about what I’m doing and how I’m doing it.  Choosing to do things in a positive way and being productive.  Choosing to move forward and not letting the past weigh me down.  Happiness and wellness is a choice and I’m the one that makes that choice." 

AN

 


"I am really aware!  I didn’t think it was possible, but it is.  The objects and myself, which all have their own energy, I notice their motion and energy even though the objects are still.  My body is always in motion even though I am sometimes still. 

My enthusiasm is greatly enhanced by the communication of my senses.  Touching things is the greatest form of communication.  I feel awesome! I am noticing all around me, the textures, temperature, softness and the rigidity of the environment around me."

DH

 


"I had some great wins on objective 3.  I realized I have adapted well to my present environment.  I’m comfortable with it and like it.  It’s healthy and structured.  I am able to confront my present environment and also myself. 

My past environment was unhealthy.  I didn’t like it and I was uncomfortable.  I used drugs in the past to be able to cope and exist.  I now no longer need drugs to exist in my present environment." 

BP

 


"To have the full range of my senses is such an awesome privilege.  Life around me is so beautiful, the colors, the smells, the textures, the sounds.  I have the choice to outwardly be aware of my surroundings and enjoy them to their full beauty.  When I do, like in objective 3, it gives me a joy in my heart and peace in my soul.  It truly is the way to happiness." 

AN

 


"I had cool wins on objective 5.  I realized that I can confront myself.  I can also confront and interact with my present environment.  I can handle any problem with myself or that arises in my present environment and I don’t need drugs to do it!" 

BP

 


"Wow!  Objective 8 was awesome.  I realized how aware of myself and my surroundings I am and that I am a physical being in the physical universe.  I also realized that I am so aware of my surroundings.  I am in control again.  It feels good being alive." 

AD

 


"I feel so good about the person I’ve become.  I now will allow myself to control my life and the things in it.  I am so much more aware of how to handle my life and understand how to control it.  I can have responsibility again and it’s like a huge amount of inflow (knowledge) came in. 

I will allow myself to be a father again.  Everything seems brighter, more interesting and more enjoyable!  I like myself.  I’m not a bad guy anymore, so I can have control!" 

MD
