Narconon Suncoast Graduate Tells Her Story
Here is a success story from one graduate of Narconon Suncoast in Florida.
“At this moment in time, I don’t even have the words to describe the sense of accomplishment I have right now. This program has not only given me my life back but has changed it drastically.
Before I came to Narconon Suncoast my life was in shambles. I didn’t know my right from left or good or bad anymore. I came from a wonderful family with a great life.
At the age of 13, my father lost his sight from a stroke that hit his optic nerves. I went to sleep with my dad being able to see me and woke up with him not. I didn’t know exactly how to handle that at all so I started to smoke marijuana. My grades in school started to slip and my family and I were fighting constantly. I did that for a few years until it became more of a routine than fun anymore.
At the age of 16, my sister Jamie committed suicide and took her own life with anti-depressants and aspirin. At that point, I was ready to give up. The pot wasn’t cutting it anymore.
I started hanging out with the wrong crowd and took my first oxycodone. Within 6 months I was hooked and needing it to function every day. I was lying, stealing, cheating, getting arrested and losing my family by the day. I was never home and if I was, I would be in my room hiding from my family and trying to escape from life.
The relationship that I had with my brother went from crappy to non-existent as well as the relationship with my mom and dad. I was sick every day and didn’t want to live anymore. I lost trust, confidence and the feeling of loving life.
After I got out of jail for the last time, my dad came up to me and cried to have his little girl back. After a few days of suffering, I finally gave in and expressed I needed help.
I went to a medical detox and was tapered off the drugs. Then I came to the Suncoast Rehabilitation Center and started learning how to live life again without the use of any kinds of substances.
I now have my life back. I am happy to be alive and happy to be clean. I have my confidence back, the trust and love of my family and a wonderful future ahead of me. The staff at Suncoast drug rehab saved my life and I thank them every day for that. I am glad to say that the old Amada is back and better than ever, thanks to the Narconon program.”
