Narconon drug and alcohol rehab program graduates return to
their families as drug-free, productive and contributing members of
(Los Angeles, CA) - Every Friday night Narconon drug rehabilitation centers
throughout the country hold graduation ceremonies celebrating the accomplishments of
clients as they progress through their treatment. Each graduation ends off with a
special acknowledgement for those who have completed the full Narconon® program,
giving them a chance to share their successes as well as reuniting them with their
For the graduates themselves, it marks the end of a difficult time in their lives
that they are now leaving in the past with confidence and determination that they
will finally be free from the grips of addiction. The mixture of excitement and a
bit of nervousness about the future they will now be creating can be tough for
someone to comprehend without having lived through it. However, the shame, guilt and
regret are all now gone and replaced with relief and an eagerness to live.
As one graduate puts it, “I feel brand new, like a kid again. I have a whole new
outlook on life that is filled with happiness and ambition, and I can’t thank my
family enough for helping me get to Narconon.”
For family members, it is a moment of hope, pride and joy. It’s impossible not to
cry when you see in parents’ eyes that they finally have their son or daughter back,
or when young children run up to their mommy or daddy to hug and kiss them sober for
the first time in years. Words can’t really describe the feeling.
“This is why we’re here,” remarks a Narconon staff member at a recent graduation.“It never gets old seeing that,” he says, trying to hold back the teardrops that
welled up in his eyes from rolling down his cheeks. But, with hardly a dry eye in
the room, it’s nearly impossible to do.
Three more graduation ceremonies like this will happen at dozens of Narconon centers
in the United States and around the world during the rest of National Alcohol and
Drug Addiction Recovery Month. They will continue to happen every Friday after that,
just as they have for decades prior to this particular evening. To learn more about
