Drug Detox is Only the First Step

Narconon Fresh Start Drug DetoxificationDrug and alcohol detox is the first step in any comprehensive addition treatment program. No matter what the drug of choice is: alcohol, heroin, cocaine, meth, marijuana, prescription drugs, a combination of several, etc. stopping use and going through the withdrawal process is necessary. The type of detox (non-medical vs. medical) that will be necessary, most effective, and favorable depends on the client’s drug of addiction. The goal for each style of care is the same – physical and mental stabilization.

Narconon Fresh Start has a New Life Detoxification program that clients go through during their time in treatment. This portion of the program removes the drug residuals from the cells of the body, thereby eliminating the urge for drugs on a physical level. This process takes a several weeks, and it will help eliminate the source of the drug or alcohol cravings, so the program participant can focus on finding and confronting the source of his or her problems during the remainder of the program. Some program participants find that as drug residuals are being flushed out of the body they become triggered by them and can experience severe mood swings. But, as time in the sauna program continues, they will start to feel markedly better and improvements will be very noticeable in skin tone, sleep patterns and overall wellbeing.

All research shows that no matter what type of drug detox method one goes through, it is vital that it is followed up by drug addiction treatment. Enrolling in one of Narconon Fresh Start treatment centers addresses the different effects of addiction on the mind, body and spirit. Program participants are able to move past physical dependence and begin to sift through the psychological reasons for their initial addiction issues while learning effective coping skills for handling similar emotional struggles in the future – without turning to alcohol or drugs of any kind.

Hundreds of program participants graduate from our programs every year, becoming productive members of their families, work force and communities. Our program graduates no longer refer to themselves as addicts, are not obligated to attend meetings and are empowered with the knowledge that they have gained in the Narconon Fresh Start program. They have learned much more than how to refrain from drugs and alcohol, they now have the ability to communicate, to be comfortable with themselves, to control themselves, to be honest, to be responsible for their actions, to choose the right friends and to confront and overcome problems. Our program graduates are not only rehabilitated from substance abuse, they are now equipped with the tools necessary to be successful in the many other facets of their life.

One thought on “Drug Detox is Only the First Step”

  1. I am so happy and proud I went to this program! I no longer refer to myself as an addict and can get on with my life as a productive, happy member of society. There is no need to go to meetings or dwell on the past once you complete the Narconon Fresh Start Program! When I use to go to meeting before I came the Narconon program, I dreaded being there and the meetings always made me feel worse about my self, and gave me a desire to go out and use. The Narconon program got rid of those urge’s and taught me not to dwell on the past but rather confront it and then move on living my life.
