This Narconon Fresh Start review shares the purpose of objective exercises taught in the course room during the Life Skills Courses at Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs.

“Objectives brought me into present time. I was stuck deeply in the events of the past five years ago and became an out of control drunk. These exercises got me into present time, which was the key point of them. I needed this realization to happen so that I could move forward in my life. I realize that anything from the past that bothered me and caused me to justify my drinking really doesn’t matter. I am over the past now and I hope my family understands that I am a different person than I was when I got here. I am in control again and have regained my confidence. I know I can keep this mind set and have a great future in store for me.”
