All of our Narconon Fresh Start programs utilize the Narconon Drug Rehabilitation Program Books to enhance our program participant’s communication skills, ability to learn, level of confront, awareness of constructive or destructive characteristics in others and their personal values and happiness in life. The skills and tools taught in the Narconon Drug Rehabilitation Program Books are essential to our clients succeeding and living a drug-free life when they complete our drug rehab program and return home. The first book in the series is known as the Therapeutic Training Routines (TRs) Course. This book is made up of drills and other practical steps that help to raise the program participant’s ability to confront situations in a more effective way by using communication to get their point across and to clearly understand what others are expecting of them as well. This course prepares the client for their life-changing journey through our Narconon Fresh Start program.
The exercises in this book are designed to assist the recovering individual directly after their withdrawal from drugs and/or alcohol. The purpose of the TRs course is to address the basic and fundamental issues that all individuals struggle with, especially addicts, so that they can get along better in life. Drugs and alcohol hinder a person’s ability to confront, control and communicate with the people and the world around them. A person who has never developed effective skills at handling life’s problems will struggle when issues in life arise. As a child they may have become frustrated because they couldn’t control the situation and hid in their room. As a teen they may have gotten in their car and driven off to escape the problem. If the person chooses to use drugs or alcohol as a means of solving their life’s problems their substance use quickly escalates from use to abuse and then to addiction. They never develop the interpersonal skills necessary to handle issues on their own and tend to lack the ability to confront, control and communicate successfully with the people around them and the world they live in.
These life skills are essential for the recovering person’s ability to positively interact with others and their capability to handle the difficult situations in life that arise. While at Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab the program participant will learn how to effectively communicate their ideas with others, understand and acknowledge the ideas of others around them and bolster their ability to confront uncomfortable topics, relationships and situations. The Narconon Fresh Start program has been designed as a step by step process and having the TRs course as our program participant’s first book gives them a vast set of skills with which to utilize throughout the rest of their program, as well as when they graduate and return to their daily life.
