Narconon UK Sauna Detoxification Success Story

I had a great childhood; great family; great friends. I grew up in a rough part of East London but managed to get scholarships to both theatre school and one of the best colleges in London. I always worked hard, was full of confidence and landed a record deal at the age of 19. My life was set.

Two weeks later I got mugged and was hospitalised for a week. I was badly beaten and had to have reconstructive surgery to fix myself up. I didn’t realise at the time that the mental scars would take longer to heal. I became increasingly anxious and agoraphobic but had to get on with my work. Along came “MR. JACK DANIELS” my new best friend. Whenever I felt anxious I’d have a drink. My confidence was shattered so I started using cocaine to ‘be myself’ when in social situations. Everyone I knew did it and it became my normal routine. Years of doing this without anybody really noticing and my natural levels of happiness and optimism were gone. Absolutely gone.

Every day was a struggle. I tried hypnotherapy, regression and found that nothing worked. Drinking had become an almost every day occurrence and I felt utterly depressed and hopeless unless I had a drink in me. I couldn’t sleep because drinking was mucking up my sleeping patterns. I started taking sleeping tablets and before I knew it I’d take heavy sedatives whenever I felt anxious or paranoid just to numb myself. Even in the day. I decided to stop drinking and realised I was an alcoholic. But the depression wouldn’t budge.

I didn’t want to start taking anti-depressants so I decided to go to Narconon. The sauna program has literally sweated out all of the toxins from years of alcohol and drug use that used to cause these daily depressions and anxiety. I feel hopeful about my future and no longer need any substance to feel happy. I’m not scared anymore and I narrowly escaped a life long future on anti-depressants and sedatives. I feel like I’ve been given a second chance at life. I can wake up everyday and just feel happy – without taking anything. I know I’m still recovering but I also know my chances of succeeding in life have just been multiplied by a million. I no longer carry around the heavy baggage of my chemical past.


The NARCONON Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation programme is entirely drug-free.
