Unlike other drug rehab programs who have their clients believing they suffer from the disease of addiction, Narconon Fresh Start programs know that addiction to illicit drugs, prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications (OTC) and alcohol is not a lifelong sentence and is not an incurable disease. Twelve-step based programs tell their clients that they are powerless and label them an addict or alcoholic insisting that they can only hope to manage their addiction problem by taking it one day at a time. We believe that this is not the case and have over 45 years of successful, fully rehabilitated clients who live a life of sobriety and do not think of themselves as addicts any longer. Narconon Fresh Start drug rehabs treat addiction to drugs and alcohol for what it truly is, a physical and mental problem that needs to overcome while addressing the underlying issues that drove the person to use in the first place. The program we use builds up our client’s self-esteem, self-confidence and ability to handle life as a sober individual. While going through the Narconon Fresh Start Program clients become more like students learning invaluable interpersonal skills such as effective verbal and non-verbal communication techniques, listening skills, problem solving, decision making, assertiveness as well as the ability to work well with others and as part of a team. We help people concur their addiction to drugs or alcohol once and for all using our complete treatment technology that goes beyond addressing merely the physical aspect of addiction. Graduates of Narconon Fresh Start programs are completely rehabilitated and do not need drug replacement medication or to attend meetings to maintain their sobriety. Their addiction is behind them and they can begin the life they always wanted now that they are clean and sober armed with the life skills necessary to handle any problem that comes their way.
