Today, a majority of drug rehab programs offer detoxification as part of their rehabilitation program. Those that don’t will have their clients who need drug or alcohol detox attend a withdrawal or detoxification program prior to enrolling in their drug rehab facility. Alone, detox does very little to change the long-term effects of drug and alcohol abuse. It is considered part of the larger picture, a piece of the puzzle to help the addicted individual return to a drug-free state and become rehabilitated.
The detoxification process is a key part of becoming rehabilitated because it helps to remove the remaining drug residuals. Without this process, drug residues can remain in one’s body and cause cravings for years after drug use has ceased. A vital step in a successful drug detox as well as drug rehabilitation is flushing out these accumulated toxic residues so that the individual no longer experiences unwanted adverse effects from the drugs they have taken.
The detox process is performed in numerous ways and is often dependent on where the recovering person is receiving treatment. When attending a standalone detox center they may only provide care to help the person avoid the physical pain of the withdrawal process. Other detox methods (often those located in-house at a drug rehab center) will include counseling during detoxification. Research shows that when both the physical and psychological needs of the recovering person are met during their detoxifications process their chances of relapse decrease.
Our Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs understand that completing a total body detoxification and purification program is the cornerstone to ensuring our program participants have the most successful results. A majority of drug rehab programs beieve that the detox process runs three to seven days, the length of time that they are physically experiencing withdrawal symptoms from the substances they have been dependent on. This is an oversight on their part; drug and alcohol addiction puts an enormous strain on the user’s liver and kidneys. Through extensive research, Narconon Fresh Start has shown that to fully detoxify from the drug residuals remaining in the user’s body they require three stages of comprehensive detoxification to prevent future relapse.
Our New Life Detoxification Program address the program participants detox needs. This part of the Narconon Fresh Start program removes the root cause of future re-stimulation by flushing out the accumulated toxic metabolites in the fatty tissues. The program consists of a strict protocol of medically supervised exercise, dry sauna therapy and scientifically formulated nutritional supplements proven to target and rid the fatty tissues of the stored drug metabolites. The New Life Detoxification program takes several weeks to complete but is effective enough to see its benefits within the first week of participation. In time, program participants see color back in their face, their eyes are brighter, their energy level increases, they sleep well each night waking feeling refreshed and find themselves feeling more centered and balanced than they have in a long time.
I’m glad to have had the opportunity once again, to rid my body of drug residuals and metabolites. The New Life Detoxification Program has helped stop the drug cravings, which had been troublesome. I feel like sweated out more toxins than I had in previous sauna. This time I stayed in for longer sessions, drank more water and was sure to take all my vitamins and minerals regularly. I feel ready to move forward to the next step.
Those who go through medically assisted drug withdrawal to minimize their discomfort but do not receive any further drug addiction rehabilitation perform about the same in terms of their future substance use as those who never attended a drug rehab. Over the last 25 years, studies have shown that completing a drug rehab works to reduce drug intake and crimes committed by drug addicted people. Researchers have also found that drug abusers who have been through a drug rehab are more likely to have jobs.
One significant goal of long-term drug rehab treatment programs like Narconon Fresh Start is to improve their client’s ability to function in society again. A drug rehab will help minimize the medical and social complications of drug abuse. Many drug rehab treatment programs incorporate some type of behavior modification into their program. This is beneficial for the recovering drug user because it helps them to replace their old drug using habits with new healthy ones they can use once they have completed treatment.
There are a variety of different drug rehab programs available today. Some offer additional help dealing with issues common to addicted individuals such as dual diagnosis (co-occurring disorders), DUI or DWI rehab, detox, teen drug rehab, or court ordered treatment. For a person addicted to drug or alcohol the ability to make a full recovery means addressing all the areas in their life that contributed to their substance abuse as well as those that could lead them to relapse. New life skills and tools are needed to help the recovering person handle real life situations once they complete treatment. Factors such as encountering someone from their days of using, returning to the same environment and places, or even small things such as smells and objects trigger memories which can create psychological stress. This can hinder the recovering individual’s goal of complete recovery, thus not allowing the addict to permanently regain control of his or her life. Successful drug rehab programs like Narconon Fresh Start offer hope to men, women, and their families who are struggling with the devastating consequences of drug and alcohol addiction.
The Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab centers uses the New Life Detoxification Program to help their clients detox and purify their bodies from the substances they have taken. This process effectively flushes out the remaining drug and alcohol toxins while ridding the person of future physical drug cravings. When a person takes drugs or drinks alcohol the toxins and metabolites of the substances can remain in their fatty tissues for years after they have stopped using. It is important that these toxins and metabolites are removed or else they can trigger drug cravings, depression and many other physical and emotional stressors when they become dislodged from the tissues and circulate in the person’s blood stream.
The New Life Detoxification Program can eliminate all types of drug toxins and metabolites; everything from alcohol, cocaine, heroin, xanax, pcp, amphetamines, crank, crystal meth, methamphetamine, ecstasy and medicinal drugs such as narcotic painkillers, tranquilizers, sleeping pills etc. The process consists of medically supervised exercise in combination with dry sauna therapy and specific scientifically formulated nutritional supplements that target the fatty tissues to help release the stored toxins and metabolites.
Below are some of Narconon Fresh Start’s New Life Detoxification Program participant’s personal success stores:
Sauna was awesome! I experienced emotional, physical, and mental gains. Physically, my stamina and endurance are excellent. Mentally, my thoughts are concise and clean; now days I’m emotionally very stable.
I’m like a new person because I’m feeling stronger and able to wake up with energy. I’m much happier and more comfortable with the drugs out of my system. I know that I’m able to continue my program because the drugs are gone and I can focus on the tasks at hand. Today I have a clear mind and I’m able to do what I need to do in order to get through and stay clean.
After 27 days in sauna and finally reaching 1000 units of niacin I came to the realization that my senses have improved, my thought process has also improved, and my communications and energy level has improved. People have said I look a lot better and have a glow about me. Best compliments I have received in a long time! I’m also sleeping like I did before my precious children came into my life, wow I feel great!
