Today we live in a toxic world; couple that with substance abuse, prescription drugs, alcoholism, etc. and it is no wonder why so many people seem to go off the “deep end”. Physicians are trained to assess and prescribe the appropriate medications when a patient enters their office. Unfortunately, many physicians today are not aware of the significant toxic burden they are adding to their clients by loading a mixture of prescription drugs into their patients. In the grand scheme of one’s overall health, the more drugs (illicit and licit) a person consumes the greater their chance of significant adverse effects from the drugs. Older people are especially sensitive to these adverse effects making substance abuse among this age group that much more dangerous.
Narconon Fresh Start programs like the Fort Collins New Life Center, Lonestar Victory Ranch, Rainbow Canyon Retreat and Sunshine Summit Lodge are able to help get addicted individuals off the toxic substance they have been using and have become dependent on. Using Narconon Fresh Start’s New Life Detoxification Method and Cognitive Behavioral Modification Model their programs have achieved an astounding success rate at keeping their program graduates off drugs and alcohol. Their approach to addiction rehabilitation is to treat the real causes of a person’s substance abuse problem; their physical and emotional issues brought on by their addiction as well as the fundamental reason(s) why they chose to abuse drugs.
The Narconon Fresh Start programs do not use any toxic drug replacement or drug substation medications to achieve their client’s sobriety; their program is holistic and completely drug-free. Treatment consists of vitamin and mineral supplementation (often people in recovery suffer from nutritional depletion and anemia due to their poor diets and skipping meals), nutritious meals, plenty of rest, completing the New Life Detoxification sauna program and life training /skill courses.
