While most other drug rehab programs consider detox to be complete when their client’s withdrawal process has ended, Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs know that there is more to be done to help a person looking to fully recover from their addiction problem. Unbeknownst to the substances abuser, the substances they consume leave behind drug and alcohol metabolites and toxins which remain stored in their fatty tissue for years after they have been ingested. It is essential that these residual drug metabolites and toxins be removed so that they do not cause the recovering individual to suffer from drug cravings, depression and many other physical and emotional stressors when they are released into their blood stream. This process is a key component of the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program and is credited to be the reason for our exceptional success rate of total rehabilitation.

The primary purpose of heroin detoxification programs is to achieve safe and humane withdrawal from heroin and other opiates by minimizing the severity of withdrawal symptoms and other medical complications. The chief objective of drug detox is to relieve withdrawal symptoms while patients adjust to a drug-free state. Not in itself a treatment for heroin addiction, detoxification is a useful step only when it leads into long-term inpatient drug rehabilitation. The best documented heroin addiction recovery results are from drug-free residential programs lasting 3 to 6 months.
While heroin and opiate withdrawal is rarely fatal, it can be extremely difficult and painful. It is characterized by acute withdrawal symptoms which peak 48 to 72 hours after the last opiate dose and disappear within 7 to 10 days. This is then followed by a longer term abstinence syndrome of general malaise and heroin craving.
Narconon Fresh Start is a long-term residential drug rehab program that uses an entirely drug-free approach to addiction rehabilitation. The cornerstone of their program is the New Life Detoxification Program which removes the root cause of future heroin re-stimulation by flushing out the accumulated toxic metabolites in the fatty tissues. This process consists of medically supervised exercise, combined with dry sauna therapy and scientifically formulated nutritional supplements targeted to rid the fatty tissues of the stored heroin metabolites, eliminating the physical cause of cravings and relapse. The program participant experiences remarkable psychological and physical benefits ranging from improved mental clarity, better sleep, and clearer skin to and enhanced overall health.

Over time, drug addiction and alcoholism take a huge toll on the user’s body. To be able to fully recover from one’s addiction issues and restore a person back to their peek physical condition it is essential that the person in recovery understand all of the conditions that could hinder their rehabilitation process. Getting a complete physical is a necessary part of understanding one’s current physical state and what is needed to improve their overall health.
In addition to addressing the general health of a recovering individual, working to flush out the toxins and metabolites left behind by drug and alcohol use is a key step in one’s recovery process. When a person consumes alcohol or takes drugs their body stores the toxins and metabolites in the user’s fatty tissue. Going through a total body purification process will effectively remove these remaining toxins and metabolites giving the person’s body new life and vitality.
This chemical buildup of drug toxins and metabolites does not necessarily create any effect while they are stored in the person’s tissue; it is when they are ultimately released into the person’s body that they trigger cravings and physical compulsions to use. The toxins become dislodged and released at haphazard times – anything from exercise to stress can cause them to become dislodged and circulate in the blood, essentially re-stimulating the user once again. When this happens the user experiences a physical, emotional and psychological reaction to the re-stimulating effects of the drug/alcohol toxins and metabolites.
A sauna-based detoxification process cleanses the person’s body of any residual toxins and metabolites and works to end physical cravings for alcohol and drugs. Narconon Fresh Start uses the New Life Detoxification Program to fully detoxify their clients. This program consists of a protocol of medically supervised exercise, time spent sweating in a dry sauna and scientifically formulated nutritional supplements that target the fatty tissue to release the residual drug and alcohol toxins and metabolites.
The New Life Detoxification program is a process that takes several weeks. While it can be a challenging part of the rehabilitation process, the results program participants gain from completing the sauna detoxification program are numerous.

As they progress through their sauna detox program clients comment that they are sleeping better at night and waking well rested in the morning.
