There are no quick fixes in the recovery process; Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs can help you reach your goal of lasting sobriety.
It would be great if there were a painless and quick way to end addiction; to wake up and find your cravings gone and the desire to use drugs or alcohol no longer controlling your thoughts. What addict wouldn’t want to skip the physical pain of the withdrawal process or the grueling journey of recovery? While this quick fix would be ideal to many struggling with achieving sobriety, it would not heal their psychological and physiological issues that accompany their addiction problem. Too truly recover from addiction, more than just the physical act of using has to change. There are layers upon layers of underlying and deeply rooted issues that must be uncovered and addressed in order for the addicted individual to be able to heal emotionally and psychologically from their addiction.
The draw of using drugs or alcohol is how easy the use of these substances brings on a high. The high the user gest from using drugs or alcohol seemingly melts away life’s problems leaving them feeling numb and able to escape from their problems, even if only for a little while. When given the choice, most addicts continue to use despite the negative consequences because it is the most simple and sure way of avoiding the problems in their life. In order for an addict to make a real recovery from addiction they must put distance between themselves and their addictive lifestyle as well as develop new skills to enable them to maintain their long-term sobriety.
Family and friends who choose to do nothing about their loved one’s addiction problem enable them to continue their use.
Having an alcoholic or drug addict in the family is often a painful and heartbreaking situation. As the loved one, you care deeply for the addicted individual but getting them to recognize their problem and accept help is challenging. There are probably times when you would rather turn a blind eye to their substance use and pretend that nothing is wrong; hoping that things will just get better and the problem will eventually go away. Unfortunately, this is not the case in most situations. If left untreated, addiction progresses and consumes the user; robing them of their emotional stability, finances, physical health and in some cases their lives. By minimizing or choosing to live in denial about your loved one’s addiction problem the situation will eventually go from bad to worse and damage the addict and those who love and care about them.
Drug addiction and alcoholism are difficult challenges that incorporate many interconnected issues for the addicted individual. While there is no “magic” formula to end addiction once and for all, drug rehab programs such as Narconon Fresh Start provide addicted persons with the resources, education and guidance they need to achieve true rehabilitation. Our drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation program includes services to help addicts and their loved ones through the recovery process. As the loved one of a drug addict or alcoholic, reaching out for help is a critical step in getting the individual the help they need to stop using once and for all. Please, contact our skilled addiction counselors for guidance and support to help your loved one end their addiction and regain the life they are meant to be living.

The Narconon Fresh Start drug and alcohol rehabilitation program has locations in Colorado, Texas, Nevada and Southern California. Their treatment centers offer drug abuse solutions and addiction rehabilitation services at locations chosen for their therapeutic environment and ability to make your recovery process as comfortable as possible. Narconon Fresh Start’s experienced and caring counselors can help you learn more about drug abuse and addiction, assist you in choosing the right treatment location and help you understand what is needed to permanently recover through their successful drug rehabilitation.
Using proven solutions for drug abuse and addiction the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program has been helping people make real and lasting recoveries for over 45 years. Providing long-term residential drug addiction treatment, their form of rehabilitation is focused on results. While their program has decades of success in helping addicted individuals end their dependence problems their methods are still thought of as “alternative”. Their unique method of addiction recovery does not use any sort of replacement drugs during the rehabilitation process and is not based on twelve step programs. Their alternative method helps their program participants handle the physical aspect of addiction through their sauna detoxification program and address the emotional/behavioral aspect of addiction through their series of life skills courses. These courses are designed to educate and empower the recovering individual by putting them back in control of their lives.
Program participants in the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program are referred to as students rather than patients or clients because they are learning, practicing and developing their new skills to remain clean and sober. Unlike other drug rehab programs, students at Narconon Fresh Start progress at their own pace. Their drug rehab program is designed with the understanding that each person recovers from addiction at their own speed. While a majority of students complete the program within three to four months, those who need more time to work through the courses have the ability to do so. They are not charged extra if they take longer to complete the program because successful recovery from drug abuse and addiction is their goal.
Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs begin with a drug-free withdrawal; this is because our programs are entirely drug-free and holistically based. Graduates of our programs do not take any form of drug therapy or drug substitution treatment during their rehabilitation process. Once they complete the Narconon Fresh Start program they are able to stand on their own two feet and meet challenges head on without using any substances to maintain their sobriety. During the program participants drug-free withdrawal they are provided with specific supplementary vitamins and minerals to minimize the physical problems associated with the initial stopping of drug use. Additionally, special and quite unique procedures developed by L. Ron Hubbard, called “assists,” are used to further ease the discomfort of withdrawal.
Additionally, graduates of our programs no longer consider themselves addicts. They have fully recovered from their addiction and do not attend meetings or counseling to maintain their sobriety. During their time at Narconon Fresh Start they will have learned, practiced and mastered all the necessary life skills and relapse prevention techniques.
The program participant then undergoes a total body detoxification regimen known as the New Life Detoxification Program. Our detox program is unique in the drug rehabilitation field and has been created as being the basis to the Narconon Fresh Start programs success rate of lasting sobriety. The detoxification program consists of an intensive sauna and exercise program, carried out in conjunction with carefully administered vitamin and mineral supplementation. Also developed by Mr. Hubbard, the New Life Detoxification program enables the body to rid itself of drug metabolite residues lodged in fatty tissues. This is crucial because the release of such substances back into the bloodstream when a person becomes anxious, excited or physically active, even years later, causes the recovered individual to again feel cravings to take drugs.
A part of the Narconon Fresh Start program addresses the program participants emotional and behavioral issues brought on by their substance abuse. Commonly, heavy drug abusers will lie, steal, and degrade themselves in order to procure additional drugs or simply because the impact of the drugs on them emotionally serves to make them unfeeling and uncaring of others. The Narconon Fresh Start drug rehabilitation program addresses this and the fact that, to a greater or lesser degree, the addict resorted to drugs due to an inability to successfully handle situations in their life. That the drugs then became their own reason for further drug use does not change the fact that the detoxified addict still has a need to learn life skills.
For these reason the Narconon Fresh Start program includes a series of courses and practical exercises utilizing technologies developed by L. Ron Hubbard. These provide the program participant with tools and abilities needed to deal successfully with life situations and interact positively and responsibly with loved ones, associates and in the community as a whole.
As the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehabilitation program fully addresses the multiple ways in which drugs and/or alcohol impacts the individual – graduates of the program find that they are released from the chains of addiction. No longer trapped with bodies that physically repeat the demand for further drugs, and no longer needing a refuge from aspects of life that seem “too difficult” or “too unfair” to deal with. Narconon Fresh Start graduates become truly free and able to contribute to their communities and to set out to create the life they desire.
Life is much better sober! I can tell my brain is healing and I’m feeling better every day.
