Narconon Graduate Successfully Recovers From Prescription Drug Abuse
Date:7/3/2009

DETROIT, July 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Ramsy Darwish knows what it's like being addicted to prescription pain medication. In a recent story called America's "Other" Drug Problem Prescription Medication Abuse with CNN's Rick Sanchez, Ramsy shared his story of addiction and recovery and how he got help, finally ending up at the Narconon Freedom Center drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Darwish, like many, didn't start out as a drug addict. He did well in school, was very skilled at Tae Quan Do, and skateboarding and grew up in a family that provided him with a lot of opportunity. By the time he was 13 years old he was looking at professional skateboarding scholarship but instead started smoking marijuana. "I went to a pretty rough junior high school and began to get involved with smoking pot and hanging out with gangs," says Darwish. "As a result, I lost interest in all my hobbies."

Starting off with pot, Ramsy's drug addiction soon escalated and he started using pills and other heavier drugs. Before he knew it, he had developed an addiction to opiates and prescription pain medication and was doing everything he could to get his next drug fix.

By the time Ramsey was ready for help, he had already burned all his bridges. "My family was hurt and it got to a point where they gave me an ultimatum - they weren't going to watch me kill myself anymore," he says. "They told me I could go to Narconon. I wanted help all along but was scared."

Despite his fear, Darwish hopped on a plane
