Kurt was an addict for 26 years starting at age 15 in high school, to a ‘functioning addict’ to homeless. Happily married, two kids, nice house. Starting with pot, acid, alcohol and “I’ll never do the needle”, to cocaine, ecstasy but it wasn’t until he was put on various psychiatric medications that his life took the most unbelievable morbid and sad downturn. Several rehabs, family help then divorce and unhappiness, but now clean and sober with his life back together, seeing his kids again and more.His story is not for the faint hearted but has a happy ending.
Aydin turned to drugs because of an inability to talk to his parents about his feelings and emotions. Sounds like a simple thing to handle but not when the culture of the family is NOT to do this.
Aydin completed the Narconon program for the second time. He was clean for 7 years but the death of his father sent him into a tail spin.
He is now complete with the program. His story is very hard hitting and one that you should hear.
It can be a disservice to call someone an addict. That labels the person and also puts a stigma on them. What do you think of when someone is referred to as an addict? Do you conjure up pictures of a downtrodden, dirty or maybe homeless person down on the street corner shooting up? Something from a movie?
Well, the reality is that addicts today can be from well to do families. They are the high school students, college students and co-workers that you think are perfectly happy and drug or alcohol free.
Drug addiction is all around us and growing. Here is a discussion of addiction.
