Find recovery at Narconon Fresh Start.

Now I’m really living

I didn’t know what living was until I had completed the Narconon Fresh Start program at Lone Star Victory Ranch. Sure, I’d had 25 years on this earth but I hadn’t really enjoyed or appreciated it. I had spent most of it in a cloud of smoke or high on something; anything to escape from my day to day life. Now, with nearly 6 months of sobriety after graduating I feel like I’m finally living my life. I’m clear headed and using the tech to better my position in life. I’ve got a great job and I’m able to apply myself each day instead of just trying to get by. My paychecks are going to more than just drugs and alcohol and I’m saving for a place of my own. While I don’t have it all figured out, I’ve got a plan for the next few months and an idea of the goals I want to accomplish in the coming year. I’m grateful for the opportunity to prove to my parents and those who love me that I’m gonna make it. Each day is a gift and I no longer take it for granted. Happy New Year! May 2014 bring you and those you love much happiness and personal success = )

Saying Goodbye to 2013

It’s New Year’s Eve! This is a time to think back and reflect upon the last 365 days. What changes have you made in your life? What accomplishments have you succeeded in? For individuals addicted to drugs and alcohol it is likely that their answers will not be very positive.

Perhaps you have attempted to stop using on your own and found that your dependence on your substance of choice is much more powerful than you anticipated. Ending addiction to drugs and alcohol often requires help from professionals. While you may be able to stop using for a period of time on your own, maintaining sobriety without understanding: addiction, why you choose to abuse drugs or alcohol, addressing the reasons for your substance use and developing ways of preventing future drug use will result in your return to drug and/or alcohol use to solve your problems.

Maybe you stumbled on difficult times in your life and wound up relapsing? Losing your way on the road of lifelong sobriety doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to regain the footing you once had. For recovered addicts who have relapsed, it means that you know how to achieve being sobriety and must work on ways to maintain it: learning new stress management tools, relapse prevention techniques, being able to identify individuals who will cause harm to your sobriety and developing a plan for your day to day life as well as a long-term plan for your future.

Planning each day as well as what you want to accomplish in the future gives the individual something to focus on. Creating structure in one’s day is valuable to everyone, no matter if they are a recovering addict or someone who is struggling with depression (or any other psychological issues). Planning and scheduling one’s time helps them to know what is expected of them each day and their free time will be filled with enjoyable, healthy activities (reading books, watching movies, spending time with supportive friends and family). Having a plan for the future gives the person achievable goals to work towards and by accomplishing these goals gives the person a sense of success and pride; two very powerful emotions that will motivate them to continue on the road of sobriety instead of returning to a life of substance use.

Narconon Fresh Start and their staff at 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 wish you and yours a very Happy New Year.

Rainbow Canyon Retreat Breaks the Chains of Drug and Alcohol Addiction

Rainbow Canyon Retreat, part of the Narconon Fresh Start network of drug rehab programs address all aspects of drug addiction and alcoholism. Their results, along with the other Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs are exceptionally higher than other addiction treatment programs. Many of those graduating from Rainbow Canyon Retreat are drug-free two years later; this is in contrast to the 16%-20% of more traditional rehabilitation treatment.

Because drug addiction and alcoholism are more prevalent in today’s society than in the past, drug rehab programs such as Rainbow Canyon Retreat must be effective at helping their clients get off drugs and learn to live a drug-free lifestyle. The grip of addiction knows no boundaries; affecting young and old, male and female, rich and poor. It is not uncommon for drug users to abuse multiple substances at the same time, becoming addicted to a combination of lethal drugs. Families suffer huge losses while the drug addict steals, lies, gets arrested and goes to jail. Many go through rehab, only to relapse after a short time.

An addict faces many hurdles on the road back from the insanity of drug addiction. So many in fact that, most drug addicts become overwhelmed along the way and fall back into using. Cravings, guilt and depression are the primary barriers that a drug addict encounters. These barriers are almost impossible to break free of, and cause him to remain in the enslavement of drug addiction.

One effective alternative method to recovery is the life skills training and moral inventory used by Narconon Fresh Start in all of their drug rehab centers including Rainbow Canyon Retreat. Narconon Fresh Start drug rehabilitation and education services provide a specific course of treatment which includes training in communication, a full body detoxification process, counseling in problem identification and solving, as well as counseling in personal values and integrity. Narconon Fresh Start programs assist individuals in accomplishing heightened moral standards and sobriety with an improved quality of life.

Rainbow Canyon Retreat breaks the chains of drug and alcohol addiction. Becoming drug free is only the first step of a long journey; the real task is helping the individual acquire the skills necessary to live life comfortably without drugs. We know the journey to recovery is not complete until the individual has a firm grasp of how to set and accomplish their goals.

We require that our graduates accomplish what it is they set out to do – handle their addiction problem forever!

Go at Your Own Pace

As with most things in life, a person progress at their own pace and can only take in so much new information at a time before becoming overwhelmed. While some people have a higher threshold for learning new things, others need more time, personal attention and perhaps even different learning styles to fully comprehend the information they are asked to learn. For these reasons and many more, it is vital that drug rehab programs are not created as a one size fits all.

Narconon Fresh Start understands how different each addicted individual’s recovery process is going to be; this is why their programs do not have a set timeframe for completion. They operate under the idea that true rehabilitation from addiction takes as long as it takes and is not a process that can be rushed. While most program participants complete the Narconon Fresh Start program in 90 days (give or take), there are some who need to remain in treatment longer. Before each program participant is approved to graduate from the program they work closely with their case supervisor to demonstrate that they fully learned all the necessary life skills and are able to apply these new skills to themselves, their life and their future once they complete treatment and return home.

“Other drug rehab programs that I’ve been through always had a set period of time that I was supposed to complete a portion of their program in. If I didn’t, then I fell behind or was quickly rushed through it. Going to Narconon Fresh Start was a change from that way of drug rehab treatment. I was told that I had as long as I needed to fully read, comprehend and practice the new life skills I was going to need when I graduated. I never felt rushed or pressured to hurry up during my program. It took just over 3 months to complete the Sunshine Summit Lodge drug rehab program and I’m glad I took my time. During the final review of the program I was able to draw on all my time studying in the course room and I was able to thoroughly demonstrate my knowledge of the life skills I was taught. With three years of sobriety now, I’m still using those same life skills day in and day out to help me in life and maintain my sobriety.”

“The last drug rehab I was in had me doing most of my recovery on my own. It was a short-term program, and while I was able to withdraw from the drugs there, I didn’t have time to do much more than that. At Narconon Fresh Start I’ve been able to not only go through the withdrawal process, I’ve completed their New Life Detoxification Program and been able to flush all the remaining drug residuals out of my system. That part of the program has left me feeling better than ever and energized to complete the remaining parts of the program. I know that I don’t have to feel hurried to graduate and that my case supervisor is looking out for me and watching over my progress. I’m enjoying the classroom like atmosphere of the course room and find myself enjoying the time I spend learning each day. While the information is not difficult to get through, it can be a challenge to fully comprehend all the new skills and techniques they are teaching. Yet another good reason that this is a self-paced program. This drug rehab is unlike any other I’ve gone to and that is what is making it the best drug rehab program by far! I’m actually learning about addiction, about myself and addressing the issues in my life that lead me to use. No other rehab center has been this in-depth and complete in their recovery methods.”
