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.

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.
