After completing the first book I feel more confident in my surrounding and in my ability to confront things in the past that would have caused me to drink. I now understand how to effectively communicate with others without letting their comments bother me. I no longer need to react to the baiting of others.
I realized by staying in the present time that I do not think about my drug problem and that I focused more on my life here and now. Which also make it a lot easier to handle myself and my problem objective is a great part of this program.
Part of the Narconon Fresh Start program is learning how to remain in present time. This technique helps our clients to keep their focus on the here and now instead of being drawn back into their memories from the past that can bring them down. Learning how to recognize your emotions and control them is a valuable skill when handling day to day life without turning to drugs and alcohol.
Today we live in a toxic world; couple that with substance abuse, prescription drugs, alcoholism, etc. and it is no wonder why so many people seem to go off the “deep end”. Physicians are trained to assess and prescribe the appropriate medications when a patient enters their office. Unfortunately, many physicians today are not aware of the significant toxic burden they are adding to their clients by loading a mixture of prescription drugs into their patients. In the grand scheme of one’s overall health, the more drugs (illicit and licit) a person consumes the greater their chance of significant adverse effects from the drugs. Older people are especially sensitive to these adverse effects making substance abuse among this age group that much more dangerous.
Narconon Fresh Start programs like the Fort Collins New Life Center, Lonestar Victory Ranch, Rainbow Canyon Retreat and Sunshine Summit Lodge are able to help get addicted individuals off the toxic substance they have been using and have become dependent on. Using Narconon Fresh Start’s New Life Detoxification Method and Cognitive Behavioral Modification Model their programs have achieved an astounding success rate at keeping their program graduates off drugs and alcohol. Their approach to addiction rehabilitation is to treat the real causes of a person’s substance abuse problem; their physical and emotional issues brought on by their addiction as well as the fundamental reason(s) why they chose to abuse drugs.
The Narconon Fresh Start programs do not use any toxic drug replacement or drug substation medications to achieve their client’s sobriety; their program is holistic and completely drug-free. Treatment consists of vitamin and mineral supplementation (often people in recovery suffer from nutritional depletion and anemia due to their poor diets and skipping meals), nutritious meals, plenty of rest, completing the New Life Detoxification sauna program and life training /skill courses.
Rainbow Canyon Retreat gives their clients the ability to live a drug-free, purpose driven life built on integrity and self-respect. While other programs tell their clients that they have a disease; one that they can only hope to learn to live with, the Rainbow Canyon Retreat program empowers their clients with the fact that they can fully recover from their addiction problem. Using Narconon’s Fresh Start treatment philosophy clients of Rainbow Canyon Retreat complete their program and never have to call themselves an “addict” again, they do not have to attend meetings to “maintain” their sobriety and they do not have a disease that may strike them down at any unforeseen moment in the future.
The Narconon Fresh Start treatment philosophy has been used for decades now and has a high success rate in complete drug addiction rehabilitation. What is even more amazing than their high success rate is that they are a drug-free program. They do not use any form of drug substitution or replacement to help their clients successfully recover from drug and alcohol addiction. Clients do not take prescription drugs to aid with their symptoms of recovery. A graduate of the Rainbow Canyon Retreat is not dependent on anything other than their inner strength and their ability to make ethical, responsible choices.
The primary way that Rainbow Canyon Retreat is able to achieve such success is by using the Narconon New Life Detoxification process. This one of a kind detox process rids the client’s body of any remaining drug residuals left behind after they have completed drug withdrawal. The program’s use of exercise, nutritional supplements and sauna assists in the purification process and leaves the client feeling better than they have in a long time. Their physical cravings for drugs or alcohol will disappear.
A graduate of the Rainbow Canyon Retreat’s treatment program learns the valuable life skills necessary to achieve lasting sobriety. They have cleansed themselves physically and have built themselves up mentally to be stronger and more self-empowered than ever before.
