Narconon Fresh Start works because their drug rehabilitation program address addiction for what it truly is; not a disease, but a physical and mental problem that has to be resolved while addressing the underlying issues that drove the individual to drug abuse. While other programs have their clients believe that they are powerless over their incurable “disease”, the Narconon Fresh Start program strengthens their client’s sense of self building up their self-respect, self-confidence and self-control.
Some programs have their clients taking prescription drugs to help get them off the illicit street drugs they are already addicted to. This enforces their client’s desire to use substances to regulate their mood, sleep patterns and ability to function in day to day life. Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs are entirely drug-free because being fully rehabilitated means no longer needing any substance in one’s life. Waking up each morning feeling ready to take on the day and going to bed each night without having to take a pill, drink, substance or attend any meetings is what Narconon Fresh Start graduates experience when they complete the program and return to their day to day lives. They have learned all the life skills and tools necessary to continue their sobriety on their own.
