Becoming an addict takes time. It is not something that happens with a person’s first sip of alcohol, first line of coke or even with the first pill they take. As with any habit in life, addiction takes time and repetition to develop into the problem it has become for the individual. The person habitually takes the substance(s) and their body begins to expect it, and then need it just to function “properly”. They crave it, think about it constantly and find that their ability to not use diminishes daily. As time goes by their life begins to center around using and it seems “natural” to them because it has been a regular part of their life for some time now.
How can a person struggling with an addiction problem hope to recover in the span of just a few weeks or a month? This hope is often dashed when the 28 day treatment program they enroll in ends and they still feel that overwhelming urge to use. Sunshine Summit Lodge understands that addiction rehabilitation takes time and is not a change that happens overnight. An addicted person needs the time and space to properly focus on their recovery.
Our rehab facility is located in the beautiful hills of Northern San Diego County providing clients with plenty of open spaces, picturesque scenery and fresh air. Clients become students during their time at Sunshine Summit Lodge learning the valuable life skills and training to ensure their lasting sobriety when they return home. As part of Narconon Fresh Start drug rehabilitation, Sunshine Summit Loge is able to provide clients with the most effective addiction recovery program available. Their success rate is one of the highest in the field of addiction recovery with over three-quarters of their graduates continuing to live a life of sobriety long after they complete treatment and return home.
