Heroin Addiction Special Interview

Yea, I was addicted to heroin for 12 years and I found Narconon.

Especially what done it for me with Narconon was the fact that they didn’t use drugs to bring me off the drugs I was already on because I’ve been in medical detoxes since I was addicted to methadone. I’ve been to countless number of doctors for Valium. And none of it worked. I was just putting more poisons into my body.

Heroin Recovery

Narconon basically saved my life. It helped me restore my creativity. It helped me develop as an artist. And it helped me live a better clean life, you know.

You’re so desperate that you will do anything for anything. And I’ve ended up and I’ve woke up with Doctors around me. I’ve od’ed basically 3 or 4 times. I’ve od’ed and had to be brought back to life. You just don’t have any respect for yourself to do that. I didn’t have any consideration. I’d wake up in the hospital. I didn’t care. Whatever. They said, “Well you nearly died. You almost died. You could have died.” What ever. I didn’t even have consideration at all. Didn’t care. I just wanted to get out of the hospital and get my next fix. And that was it. And that was all that mattered to me. And that was all that mattered to me. It was what I lived for. It’s what heroin addicts live for.

The drug problem in the UK, what I experienced, is heroin and coke/cocaine. That seems to be the drug of choice for artists these days. The sauna detox is an amazing part of the program. It rids your body of all the toxins that stored up in your fatty tissues over the years through drug abuse and other chemicals that have gotten in there some way. And basically, to keep it short, by the end of the sauna your going to feel like a fresh, new born baby.

Now I’m creating music, where when I was on drugs, I was never able to create music. I was always succumbing to the effects of the drugs thinking that drugs were making me a better artist.

The staff here, they don’t treat you as an addict. They don’t treat you as another number. They actually care. I went to countless number of doctors and countless number of counselors. I was in medical detoxes and all I was doing is pumping my self with all of these poisons and making the problems worse for myself because after my medical detox, I actually got hooked on valium and that was to come off heroin. So now I have a heroin addiction, a methadone addiction and I was also addicted to diazepam. And plus sleeping tablets on top of that. So I had like 4 or 5 different addictions all because I wanted help.

You know. With Narconon, I loved what I read. I read about it. It said it didn’t use drugs. It used vitamins. That’s how they take people off of drugs. There’s a lot more to it and what they do. I was excited about that. It’s what I needed. It was change. And to tell you the truth, with everything that I’ve tried in the past, it was actually the easiest. It was the easiest withdrawal I’ve ever done. I was coming off methadone, diazepam, and heroin. I live a clean life now. I’m happy. I’m confident. I’m making music. And that’s what I wanted to do. That’s all I ever wanted to do all my life. And without what I’ve learned at Narconon. I don’t know how I would have been able to do that. You know. Really. Because it’s gave me that confidence in my self t o actually be handling this.

Well thank you Marc. Thank you for sharing with us.

Thank you.

Good luck.

If you know anyone with a drug addiction, get them to Narconon because it saved my life and it saved countless people’s lives.

Southern California Children’s Fair Features Drug Education in a Fun Format for Kids

Narconon Drug Education Fair

The Challenge: How do you express to thousands of young people at a children’s fair that staying free from drug use is the right way to go – and keep it fun at the same time?

The Answer: Make it interactive, keep it light, make it voluntary and staff it with great people!

Those were the answers developed for the Narconon Drug Education booth at the Children’s Day Fair at Woodland Park in Van Nuys, California, held from 9 AM to 6 PM on September 17, 2011. News reports placed the number of attendees – children, their parents and interested neighbors – at 50,000. Attractions included young singers and dancers, fire trucks, police motorcycles and a helicopter, an armored Humvee, games and rides. Resource booths providing the community with information ran the gamut from sports, drama, song and dance to anti-gang programs and of course, the Narconon booth education all visitors on the benefits of a drug-free life.

Drug Education Children's Fair

Chipper and cheerful, teen volunteers and Narconon staff greeted fair attendees with the offer of the educational booklet “Ten Things Your Friends May Not Know About Drugs” and encouragement to sign a drug-free pledge.

More than five hundred young people and their parents signed the drug-free pledge and then got the opportunity to help complete the artwork in the booth. Two drawings of hip-hop youth on banners in the booth were wearing all-white clothing in the morning, but by the end of the fair, pledge signers had gotten to fill in their clothes, shoes and hats with bright colors. Toward the end of the fair day, the bright images giving a “thumbs-down to drugs” and a “thumbs-up to life” were so appealing that some attendees wanted to have their pictures taken with the images.

With local celebrities and entertainers headlining many of the events, the Children’s Fair proved to be an excellent way to convey the drug-free message to thousands of people in the San Fernando Valley. You can be sure that there will be another booth at next year’s event!
