I Want to Build a Sauna in My Home!

I’ve been sober for 40 some odd days now and I’m feeling 100% better than I did when I first came to Narconon Fresh Start. I’m sleeping better now than I can ever remember; probably since my teenage years. I can feel my brain coming back to life. Well, as much of it as I can get back. I am thankful for my choice to get help and even more happy that I did not end up some place else. The New Life Detoxification Program has, and still is helping me more than I imagined. The results are so wonderful that I want to build a sauna in my home to continue removing chemicals and environmental toxins from my body monthly. Thanks to this program I feel well balanced and stable.

What it takes to Truly Recover from Addiction

To truly recover from drug and alcohol addiction the addicted individual has to go beyond just stopping their substance use. It takes major changes in their day to day life, their coping mechanisms, their interpersonal skills and the way they view themselves. Recently, Narconon drug rehab programs were acknowledged for choosing to incorporate both the physical recovery and the cognitive skills education necessary to fully rehabilitate an addicted person.

Since 1966, Narconon programs such as Narconon Fresh Start have been operating based on the need to help the recovering individual develop life skills in addition to ending their physical addiction problem. This concept of working on the addicted person’s cognitive skills during their time in drug rehab is now garnering increasing validation from both national and international health organizations. A recent report noted that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United States Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) have released statements acknowledging the necessity to target life skills, e.g. cognitive and social skills during a patient’s time in drug rehab.

The Narconon International website has recently added an area where families can review the importance of life skills in addiction recovery. Narconon Fresh Start incorporates these life skills courses into their programs and understands the importance of educating the recovering individual and their loved ones on constructive ways to handle life’s problems. To achieve lasting sobriety the recovering person needs to repair the damage their addiction has wrought on their lives and the lives of those who care about them. Without repairing one’s past damage, each day will continue to be a struggle.

The Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program addresses the client’s physical cravings through their New Life Detoxification Program. But, if they do not go any further in their rehabilitation process the individual is drug-free but has not developed any solutions to prevent them from returning to their former way of coping. Narconon and Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs know that the recovering person must find relief from their guilt and develop the ability to solve problems without turning to drugs or alcohol. This is where the Narconon life skills training and courses play a pivotal role in the individual’s recovery and lasting sobriety.

The Life Skills Courses that Narconon Fresh Start cover range from developing the ability to effectively communicate with those around them to developing one’s own moral compass that will help guide them in creating an honest life for themselves when they graduate from the program. Because Narconon Fresh Start’s drug rehab centers are long-term, residential treatment programs they provide the recovering individual with the necessary time and drug-free environment to truly focus on their recovery.

Each center is located in specifically chosen settings ideal for their tranquility and serenity. Fort Collins New Life Center is located in Colorado and provides clients with park-like grounds, fresh air and mountain views. Lone Star Victory Ranch in Texas rests in the heart of the majestic Rio Grande Valley and surrounded by lush farmland. Rainbow Canyon Retreat in Nevada was once a dude ranch and sits on 320 acres; it is still an active cattle and horse grazing land. Sunshine Summit Lodge in California was a former executive retreat with a rural location that lends itself to self-discovery and a healthy change of pace for the recovering program participant. With treatment centers located in a variety of different settings Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs will help you or your loved one put an end to addiction once and for all.

True Recovery

What does it look like to truly be recovered from drug addiction or alcoholism? A person who is fully recovered from their addiction doesn’t need to take medication, doesn’t need to attend meetings and doesn’t refer to themselves as an addict any longer. They have conquered their physical addiction problem in addition to addressing the underlying issues that drove them to use in the first place. A person who is fully recovered from their substance dependence is able to stand on their own two feet and face life’s challenges, life’s ups and downs and tests to their sobriety without faltering.
