Recently I had a baby shower at work - the Narconon staff were so generous and wonderful and my baby got all that she will need. My coworkers put this kind of generosity and effort into all they do. It is evident to me that these are the kindest, most dedicated people on the planet!

Solve the Drug Problem
I received a letter this week from a graduate of our program around September of 2004. He wrote in to say that he is doing great and working for a Narconon in Florida. He is clean now and he is helping others get clean. That is the type of thing that will help us solve the drug problem throughout the world. If everyone we helped here at Narconon went out and helped one other person get clean, then we would have the drug problem whipped!

I have been helping out in the Ethics Department at Narconon recently due to our overload of students going through the program that need help especially in that area of their lives. I have been able to lend them a hand and I have gained further reality on what an individual needs to receive help. A lot of folks have trouble letting go of old behaviors and attitudes; it comes with the territory of addiction. So, to help these addicts, a person needs to understand that they cannot be forced into help or a pro-survival pattern of behavior. You have to help them to want it themselves. And in working with some of these guys this past week, I have seen that they switch from apathy to the need and want for something better. Then, a person can see that desire re-light in someone's eyes and all the effort is worth it. It can be a long road to travel with someone, but the end result of a drug free, productive person is unrivaled.

I feel that even though I'm 7 months pregnant and experiencing all of the physical restrictions and emotional ups and downs from this, I am helping people more than ever. I am running the graduate office at Narconon Arrowhead and I run across so many successful people and can draw from so many sources to help them be successful. All of the slings and arrows of drug addiction and the miracles and joys of life have prepared me to be this caring staff member, anxious mother, and overall good person is changing the course the world is on. All this is because once upon a time I decided to get clean from addiction and go through the Narconon Rehabilitation Program.

Turn Your Life Around
This week I helped 4 individuals get into our rehabilitation program. Some of these people put off coming to get help at Narconon Arrowhead and realized that this is the right place for them. I can't express how amazing it is to witness someone make the turn around and start handling their life's problems again.

Solving the Drug Problem
I happen to work with the best people in the world. Every staff member here is so positive and on task with solving the drug problem and since Narconon Arrowhead is the largest residental drug rehab in the U.S., you can just imagine how many friends I am surrounded by each day at work. It takes a pretty amazing bunch to help people fight their addictions and have the success rate that we have.

Addicts helping Addicts
Graduate referrals that were sent in this past week were the highest every we've seen!! This means that 31 people were referred to Narconon Arrowhead by graduates that have already been through our program successfully. This illustrates the power of our program. We have not only the power to help someone get clean from drugs and alcohol, but we also turn his whole life around to the point where he wants to help other people get the same gains in life!
