The Benefits of Choosing a Non Group Therapy Individualized Approach

Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab centers are one of the leaders in alcohol and drug rehabilitation and true addiction recovery. Their programs are located in several states including Fort Collins New Life Center in Colorado, Lone Star Victory Ranch in Texas, Rainbow Canyon Retreat in Nevada and Sunshine Summit Lodge in Southern California. While there are a number of unique qualities Narconon Fresh Start programs are known for, it is their non-group therapy individualized approach to drug and alcohol addiction rehabilitation and recovery that sets them apart from standard programs.

At every Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab center, program participants address their individual addiction problem, life, family friends, issues, and specific areas that need change and/or improvement. All of these changes and improvements take place while the program participant is in treatment; not when they have left rehab and are on their own. Each drug rehab program has a team of Course Supervisors, Case Supervisors, Registered Addictions Specialists and Life Skills Counselors that work closely with each program participant on a precise schedule to handle their specific issues and needs. Each drug rehab treatment location has a high staff to client ratio; usually 1 staff member for every 2 program participants. Most drug rehab facilities do not practice an individualized approach to drug and alcohol rehabilitation like Narconon Fresh Start programs. Typically, they will use group therapy and employ 1 counselor for 10 to 25 clients who are all sharing the same group therapy session.

The problem with this scenario is that if a client does not feel like sharing then they have the ability to sit back and not participate. Or, perhaps the person is much more private and doesn’t feel comfortable sharing their past actions and current feelings with strangers; they would not reap the benefit of therapy because they would not actively participate in the group sessions. Narconon Fresh Start’s non-group therapy individualized approach to addiction recovery is ideal for every type of person, from the extremely introverted to the most extroverted person out there. People with every personality type and social comfort level can find the care and individualized attention they need to fully recover while attending one of Narconon Fresh Start’s drug rehab centers.

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.

Narconon Fresh Start has several drug rehab programs available to help you or the person you care about find a permanent solution to ending addiction. Their drug rehab programs are located in a variety of settings and provide clients with the seclusion and safety they need while they rehabilitate and recover. With centers in Colorado, Texas, Nevada and California there is sure to be a drug rehab treatment location that meets you or your loved one’s specific needs.

Some Say Drug Rehab Doesn’t Work…We Know it Does!

There are a lot of people who feel that drug rehabs are not effective at helping addicted individuals recover. These misconceptions are fuelled by the fact that while some people are able to achieve sobriety the first time they enroll in treatment, a good number of addicted persons will need to go through a few different programs utilizing differing recovery techniques until they find the one that best fits their personal recovery needs.

Current research into drug rehab programs reveals that completing a drug rehab program reduces drug use by forty to sixty percent and dramatically decreases criminal activity during and after treatment is complete. These studies have also found that participation in a drug rehab program reduces the risk of infectious diseases (Hepatitis C and HIV) among intravenous drug users. Additionally, I.V. drug users who enter drug rehab and remain in the program are shown to be six times less likely to become infected with HIV. Lastly, across the board, persons who enter and complete drug rehab are up to forty percent more likely to get and keep a job than their drug using counterparts who do not receive treatment.

As one of the most successful drug rehab programs in the country, Narconon Fresh Start understands how important receiving treatment for one’s addiction problem is. Their treatment centers are located across the Western United States and provide ideal locations that are as picturesque as they are practical. Their drug rehab centers reside in Colorado at the Fort Collins New Life Center, Texas at the Lone Star Victory Ranch, in Nevada at the Rainbow Canyon Retreat and in Southern California at the Sunshine Summit Lodge.

While enrolled in drug rehab, program participates work on addressing the real causes of their addiction issues. The Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab treatment philosophy is not based on the disease model of addiction which dictates that a person with an addiction problem will always be an addict. The educational rehabilitation philosophy that Narconon Fresh Start uses is based on locating, confronting and resolving the many causes of the addiction and the behaviors associated with it.

Addiction Recovery: Drug Rehab is a Not Always a One Shot Deal

Like many other chronic health issues, drug addiction rehabilitation can take several attempts before finding the right treatment and having lasting success. While some people are able to end their addiction by going “cold turkey” or after their first time to drug rehab, there are many people who need more than one time in treatment to find lasting sobriety. For these individuals, multiple  enrollments in drug rehab is not a sign of weakness or inability to achieve recovery; instead, their need to go through different treatment programs implies that they did not receive enough treatment initially, or, that the program they attended didn’t address all of their issues. This left the client with unresolved underlying issues, making them more susceptible to relapse.

For the majority of addicted people, long-term inpatient drug rehabilitation is needed to put an end to their addiction problems. However, most addicted people choose outpatient or short-term programs because they are more economical and take less time out of their life. While outpatient drug rehab programs and short-term treatment has a place in the field of recovery, they are not ideal solutions for long-term and/or heavily addicted individuals. A person who has been struggling with an addiction problem for some time needs a while to fully withdraw from the substance(s) they are dependent on, time to uncover the underlying issues that drove them to use and time to develop new ways of handling life and daily stress without turning to drugs or alcohol. The process of withdrawal can last several days to over a week and must be completed before the individual is ready to address the personal issues that drove them to use. It takes time for the recovering person to learn, practice and perfect their new life skills; making long-term drug rehab programs an ideal solution.

Narconon Fresh Start has several different long-term residential drug rehab programs to help addicted individuals recover. There is Fort Collins New Life Center in Colorado where clients can receive treatment while being surrounded by picturesque views, nearby parks, rivers and wide open spaces.

Nestled on 320 beautiful acres, this drug rehab center provides client with plenty of room and lots of healthy ways to spend their free-time when not actively working on their program. Clients enjoy basketball, volleyball, baseball, horse shoes, billiards, ping pong and movies. Home to a professional kitchen, wonderful chefs prepare delicious meals daily for staff and program participants.

Ending Drug Cravings

Have you ever found yourself craving something? It’s a feeling that seems to take ahold of your mind, body and actions until you satisfy the urge. For most people, their cravings are somewhat mild and controllable. They may crave caffeine, tobacco, chocolate, shopping even exercise. A person who develops a substance abuse problem will crave their drug of choice. This craving may become physical depending on the substance they have been abusing. For example, a person who regularly takes opiates such as heroin, OxyContin, morphine, codeine, etc. will physically need the substance so that their body does not go through the withdrawal process; a process that is both physically and emotionally painful that can last several days to over a week.

The staff members at Fort Collins New Life Center in Colorado are familiar with drug cravings and how to put an end to them. Using the New Life Detoxification Program they are able to help their clients detoxify and purify their bodies from the harmful substances they have been taking. This process involves a specific protocol of medically supervised exercise, time spent sweating in a dry sauna and scientifically formulated nutritional supplements proven to target and rid the fatty tissues where the stored drug toxins remain. Their detox program has decades of research and documented results that illustrate how successful the process is at eliminating the physical cause of alcohol or drug cravings and relapse.

“I got amazing wins out of the New Life Detoxification Program, both mentally and physically. Physically I feel better than I ever have before. I am energized and my skin and eyes are bright. I’m more aware of my body and overall I just feel great like I did before I started using drugs, but even better. Mentally I am aware and feel happier then I have ever felt before. I can remember things and concentrate; I had great wins in the sauna program!”
H. P.

“The New Life Detoxification Program worked wonders for me. I was looking forward to getting to do the sauna program when I first got here because I knew the drastic changes it would create in me. When I first arrived I had many physical and emotional problems stemming from drug use. I know that without the sauna I could never feel as healthy as I do today.”
