Change is Necessary for Lasting Sobriety

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.



Sauna Helped Stop the Drug Cravings

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.

No Longer Lost in a Fog

My time in the New Life Detoxification Program here at Sunshine Summit Lodge has improved my health in so many ways. I’ve been sleeping very well lately and my legs no longer bother me at all. My alcohol and drug cravings have diminished too. It’s wonderful not to be plagued by urges to use throughout the day and night. I’m able to focus on my drug rehab program and pay attention to what is going on around me instead of being lost in a fog of cravings for drugs and alcohol.

The Narconon Fresh Start program uses a total body detoxification and purification method known as the New Life Detoxification Program, a.k.a. the sauna. This highly specialized method of detoxification does more than just flush out the client’s residual drug toxins; it effectively eliminates any future physical drug cravings.  After approval by a medical professional, the client begins a protocol of nutritional supplements, supervised exercise and time sweating in the dry sauna. This process lasts several weeks to just over a month and is considered one of the more challenging aspects of the Narconon Fresh Start program. While it is fair to say that the process is physically demanding and can be emotionally draining the results speak for themselves.

“Within just a few days to a week of doing the body cleansing and purification process, the participants have color back in their face, their eyes are brighter, their energy level increases and they are sleeping well at night, waking up the next morning feeling refreshed. The mood swings from anger to depression and general uncomfortability and anxiety levels diminish and many will say they feel more centered and balanced and more themselves again. Many of the participants will say that they have not felt this good, healthy, and alive since some earlier pleasurable time in their life when they were playing sports or other athletic activity. Our staff and counselors will generally see an increased willingness and motivation in the program participant which helps set them up for the next sections of the program dealing with the underlying issues and transgressions. All of the above positive effects are of course side benefits to the real reason and result of the New Life Detoxification Program, which is to eliminate future drug cravings and relapses on drugs or alcohol which is a huge accomplishment.”
