I am writing this letter as a mother


To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter as a mother who almost lost her daughter to alcohol addiction. In June I saw my daughter at her lowest point in life, I didn't know if she was going to live through the day. Every holiday seemed to bring on a week binge for her and I knew that she would be dead on the 4th of July if we did not do something to save her life. Through her addiction our family lost a friend, a daughter and a sister. She turned into someone we didn't know anymore. She stopped talking to us, telling us the truth and showed up in and out of our lives for years. She had lost all confidence in herself and drive to achieve. She went into hiding from herself and the world. She was settling for environments and people that where so out of her characteristics it scared our family to even trust her to be around.

On June 18 my husband and I drove our daughter to Narconon Rainbow Canyon. This was a huge financial decision that we had to make because we knew that it would prolong my husband's retirement but our selling decision was that this was much cheaper than a funeral. We had searched the internet for hours and called many different rehabs and this was the one. Narconon Rainbow Canyon offers a guarantee something that no other rehab could offer. She had tried AA meetings, she had gone to other group meeting and nothing short term was working. She needed long term and long term results.

After 3 weeks of her being at Narconon Rainbow Canyon we saw a drastic change in her and her attitude. She has continued to grow since then.

It has been years since I have been able to sleep at night peacefully and I have that now. I can answer the phone with out the fear of it being the police or finding out that she was somewhere dead in a ditch. Now I answer the phone looking forward to hear from my daughter, my friend. Each day she continues to grow. When she started the program I felt like I was watching my baby take her first steps into life and now I am watching her walk into life with the life that she deserves with confidence and drive to achieve. We are so thankful for Narconon Rainbow Canyon and the staff for all of their efforts and care each day that they put into saving lives and bringing families back together.

Sincerely,
Sheila T.
