"B efore starting Objectives, I wasn’t sure what to expect or how they worked. All I was told is this part of the program was to clear your mind. Since I was a very private and withheld communication even as realizations came to me, I informed the staff I wasn’t comfortable to share. I had many trust issues and didn’t feel safe sharing things extremely personal with someone I looked at as a stranger. Yet, I was only hindering myself by doing this. Keeping things in was causing so much pain.
“After talking with the staff, I decided to listen and not hold back on any of my objectives. I opened up completely with my Objectives partner

and really took in what I was gaining from each Objective I completed.
“I learned a lot about pin pointing my emotions and handling them in a healthy way as they come to you instead of suppressing them. I have gained so much confidence and control in my life. I feel calmer, clearer, and now capable of addressing all situations pertaining to my past, present, and future.
“I feel Objectives has given me the strength I lacked, the clarity I missed, and the confidence I need to address my life effectively. From this point forward, and for once I have a new-found hope and excitement on what is to come.”—Narconon Student
Narconon New Life Retreat offers beautiful and comfortable facilities matched with a highly successful non 12 step program which results in higher success rate

Finding The Music

The journey back from drug addiction is different for each of us.  No matter where we come from or how our addiction affected us we can all learn from each other.

Stepping Stones to Recovery

 Life before Narconon was pretty much a big game to me, just not a survival one.  Life got to the point that I started to get amused by pain and I didn’t even care about anything anymore

Got My Life Back

How does someone wind up addicted to drugs? The truth is each person’s descent into drug addiction is different. This amazing story shows us a different perspective on how a person becomes addicted to drugs.

“Secrets Will Help Nobody”: My Daughter’s Story of Addiction
My 20-year-old daughter Casey died of an accidental heroin overdose on January 15, 2017. She told me that if something were ever to happen to her, she’d want me to write an honest obituary about her struggles with addiction. “Tell them my story,” she said. “Secrets will help nobody. I would want to help someone else, to make them feel less alone — even if it’s just one person.”

The struggle with Casey's addiction affected myself, my husband and my son so deeply. That January, she was really excited for a fresh start, heading to a new rehabilitation center. Unfortunately, she overdosed the night before, next to her packed suitcase. I wrote her honest obituary, and it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done but it went viral and ended up affecting hundreds of people all over the world.

Casey will always be special to me, but was she any more special than the other tens of thousands of people who died last year of an overdose? There are tragic stories everywhere, and I thought, “How can I inspire them? How can I give them hope? And I realized they inspired me.”

I sat down to tell Casey’s story and talk about what she and so many others go through, and how where there’s breath, there’s hope:

Dopesick: An Interview with Beth Macy | The Fix

Dopesick: An Interview with Beth Macy | The Fix: It takes the average user eight years and five to six treatment attempts just to achieve one year of sobriety. And in an era of fentanyl and other even stronger synthetic opioids, many users don’t have eight years.

Pawn Stars: The Opioid Edition | The Fix: If you are at risk for overdose or use needles to shoot up drugs, come see Brandi and she’ll take care of you - no frills, no questions, no judgment.

A Month of Heart Attacks: Withdrawing from Antidepressants | The Fix

A Month of Heart Attacks: Withdrawing from Antidepressants | The Fix: My doctor tells me not to worry. The medication is safe. I worry he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. I worry this was a big mistake I made at 18 and am paying for the rest of my life.

Real Housewives of Recovery: Reality TV and Addiction | The Fix

Real Housewives of Recovery: Reality TV and Addiction | The Fix: It is no secret that alcohol is readily available on set while filming these shows to grease the wheels of conflict, and not everyone who drinks alcohol misuses it.

Suboxone: A Tool for Recovery | The Fix

Suboxone: A Tool for Recovery | The Fix: With medication-assisted treatment (MAT), people with opioid addictions are given the chance to rebuild their lives—often from the ashes and debris of drug-induced destruction—without having to fight cravings and withdrawal.
