Realizing You’re an Addict

Some people are able to use drugs or alcohol recreationally, meaning that they do no experience negative consequences due to their substance use or develop an addiction problem. On the other hand, there are a large number of individuals who find that their substance use has escalated to the point where it causes them problems at work, home, school and in their relationships. What was once a fun or stress relieving activity has now left them feeling helpless, isolated and ashamed.

For the addicted person, it sometimes seems that it’s as if you wake up one morning and suddenly realize you’re an addict. When this realization hits home and you finally grasp what it means to be so dependent on a substance that you have lost nearly everything you previously valued, it can feel overwhelming. If you personally have developed an addiction problem or if someone you care about struggles with addiction it is important that you know there is help available.

What sets Narconon Fresh Start programs apart from other treatment centers is their rehabilitation philosophy. It is not based on the disease model of addiction that dictates a person with an addiction problem will always be an addict with an incurable disease; a disease they cannot ever overcome but only hope to learn to cope with for the rest of their lives. Instead, Narconon Fresh Start uses an education rehabilitation philosophy based on locating, confronting and resolving the root causes of their program participant’s addiction problem and the numerous behaviors associated with it as well.

While clients enter Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs as addicts or alcoholics, they soon become students learning the important educational life skills and tools necessary to become truly rehabilitated. When they graduate from the program they no longer use the labels of addict or alcoholic because they have fully recovered from their addiction problem.

Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab centers provide their clients with much more than just helping them get off the addictive substances they are dependent on. These treatment programs teach clients about themselves: why they act and react the way they do, why they choose drug or alcohol use to solve their issues, how to take control over themselves and their environment as well as how to prevent future relapse when they return home. Program graduates learn valuable life skills that benefit them throughout their lives. They strengthen their able to confront difficult or stressful situations without resorting to substance use, they develop effective communication skills, they learn how to stay in the moment instead of sinking back into past thoughts or behaviors and they receive ethics training to help them become a more honorable and moral version of themselves.
