Handling More Than Drug Addiction Rehabilitation

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.

You are not alone…

Being the loved one of an addict is a very difficult situation to be in. The rollercoaster seems to never end; one moment all is going well, then the next it seems the rug has been pulled out from under you and you are in free fall. We understand the whirlwind of emotions you are going through and want to help you regain your footing and learn to take back control over your life. While you cannot control the choices and behavior of those around you, you can take control and responsibility for yourself. Doing this will help you feel more like yourself and better equipped to handle the turmoil your loved one is struggling with.

Addiction to drugs or alcohol opens up a dark and tumultuous world for those who love and care about the addicted individual. When addiction takes hold of a person is steals away the essence of who they are and leaves a shell of their former selves behind. Their focus shifts from their family, loved ones, school, career, etc. to their drug of choice. Everyday centers around obtaining the substance, using the substance and recovering from its negative effects. The person you once knew as a daughter, son, husband, wife, sister, brother or friend is now replaced by an addict who puts their needs before anyone or anything else.

Why Narconon Fresh Start Works

Narconon Fresh Start works because their drug rehabilitation program address addiction for what it truly is; not a disease, but a physical and mental problem that has to be resolved while addressing the underlying issues that drove the individual to drug abuse. While other programs have their clients believe that they are powerless over their incurable “disease”, the Narconon Fresh Start program strengthens their client’s sense of self building up their self-respect, self-confidence and self-control.

Some programs have their clients taking prescription drugs to help get them off the illicit street drugs they are already addicted to. This enforces their client’s desire to use substances to regulate their mood, sleep patterns and ability to function in day to day life. Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs are entirely drug-free because being fully rehabilitated means no longer needing any substance in one’s life. Waking up each morning feeling ready to take on the day and going to bed each night without having to take a pill, drink, substance or attend any meetings is what Narconon Fresh Start graduates experience when they complete the program and return to their day to day lives. They have learned all the life skills and tools necessary to continue their sobriety on their own.

Can addiction to drugs and alcohol be cured?

The answer in a nutshell is, yes! Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs view drug addiction and alcoholism differently than other treatment facilities. They do not go along with the belief that drug addiction and alcoholism are diseases a person suffers from and can only hope to manage “one day at a time”. Instead, they treat addiction for what it truly is; a mental and physical problem that must be overcome while concurrently addressing the underlying issues that drove the individual to abuse the substance in the first place. One of the vast differences in their program vs. others is that Narconon Fresh Start clients are not labeled lifelong addicts and told they are powerless over their drug addiction or alcoholism. The treatment program they provide gives their clients true rehabilitation that builds them up and clearly illustrates to them that they are powerful and in control of their thoughts, emotions and actions.

Addiction to drugs or alcohol is both a learned behavior as well as physical conditioning to take the substance. When an individual habitually consumes mind altering substances in excess for a period of time their mind and body begins to adjust to the substance’s regular presence and starts to accommodate for it. While these changes in the drug or alcohol user persist during their substance use, the individual will return back to “normal” with proper treatment (i.e. drug rehabilitation) and time spent clean and sober.

Narconon Fresh Start is a network of highly successful drug rehab programs that provide their clients with the most effective drug rehabilitation technology and highest success rates in the field of addiction recovery. Their graduates experience true and lasting rehabilitation, remaining substance free for life. Their network of drug rehabs includes Fort Collins New Life Center in Colorado, Lone Star Victory Ranch in Texas, Rainbow Canyon Retreat in Nevada and Sunshine Summit Lodge in Southern California. Each location offers program participants a safe sanctuary from the many temptations and restimulative environments they have previously been influenced by. The facilities themselves provide clients with a therapeutic environment designed to address their drug and/or alcohol addiction problem. Program participants go through a complete physical, mental and spiritual recovery from their addiction issues; typically, this is one of the hardest, yet rewarding endeavors they accomplish in their lifetime. Because of this fact, all Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab centers are equipped with everything necessary to complete this process while ensuring their client’s safety and comfort during each step of the process.

The Narconon Fresh Start drug rehabilitation program is a long-term, multi-phase program that includes withdrawal, complete total body detoxification and purification (the New Life Detoxification Program) and education in life and interpersonal skills. One of the unique aspects of their program is the life skills training because many other treatment centers do not include this as part of their recovery process. Clients become students as they go to course each day, study the Narconon Fresh Start program books and are then tested on the information they have just learned. The testing ensures that the student fully understands what they have just learned and is able to make it their own, integrate it into their way of thinking and their daily life. Students learn effective communication skills, how to get along with others (i.e. family, friends, acquaintances, etc.), how to see what is good in life and what is bad, how to avoid situations that will lead them down the wrong path and teaches them a common sense moral code that when followed will put them on the road to happiness. As the program comes to completion the student has fully learned all the life and interpersonal skills spelled out in the Narconon Fresh Start books. They achieve a level of understanding and existence that they may never have reached without going through this specific drug rehab program. It is a level of understanding and existence that is necessary to function in the outside world with their family, relatives, friends, employer and coworkers without feeling that they need to resort to drugs or alcohol. Graduates of Narconon Fresh Start drug rehabs have all the tools and life skills they need to remain clean and sober when they return home; no meetings to attend, no drug replacement medications to take in order to maintain their sobriety.

Los Angeles Drug Rehab Programs

Los Angeles drug rehab programs are some of the most well-known treatment facilities in the U.S. Narconon Fresh Start is a drug rehab program whose origins are deeply rooted in Los Angeles. Their programs have a long history of success and are considered to be the most effective in the field of addiction recovery. The original program was created by William Benitez back in 1966 while he was serving time at the Arizona state prison.  After being inspired by the practical betterment philosophy of author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard he created a new and innovative way to go about rehabilitating himself and other addicted inmates. His program was founded on Mr. Hubbard’s philosophy on instilling personal values, integrity and responsibility.

The personal history behind Mr. Benitez and his time in prison is that when he found out that his original sentence was in error and he was eligible for release with time served he requested a reduced sentence instead. This allowed him to remain in the prison system for an additional 16 months to further perfect his rehabilitation program and help others continue their progress using his recovery techniques.  After developing this new and innovative treatment technology within the prison system, Mr. Benitez moved to California after his release.

Moving to California allowed him the opportunity to help more people. He opened up his first of many Los Angeles drug rehab programs in 1971 known as Narconon Los Angeles. This was the beginning of today’s Narconon Fresh Start centers. Present day Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs offer effective treatment in many states including Southern California, Texas, Colorado and Nevada. Their programs have been modernized and provide clients with a time variable approach to recovery, non-group therapy using an individualized approach, secluded distraction free locations, body cleansing and purification, proven life skills and rehabilitation technology, a high success rate and program guarantee.
