Narconon Fresh Start’s network of drug rehab centers are connected with successful programs around the world. Recently, Narconon International released a report with a summary analysis of a 3 year outcome survey completed by a Narconon drug rehab program in Southern Sweden known as Eslov. Graduates from the program were surveyed over a 3 year period to obtain the most current success rates from their specific drug rehab program. The findings validate the high success rate of the Narconon program. It demonstrates how effective this method of rehabilitation and treatment philosophy is for all forms of drug and alcohol addiction.
Some of the key findings collected in this survey include a high retention rate of 77.8%; this percentage is quite high considering the Eslov program runs 8-12 months on average. Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab programs typically run 3-4 months and have comparable retention rates for their facilities.
The findings for drug abstinent and no alcohol intoxication for the “last 30 days” (1-3 years after graduation were: 2010: 82%; 2011: 86%; 2012: 88%. This shows an 86% average of graduates remaining drug free and no alcohol intoxication during this 3 year period.
Narconon Fresh Start has found that their graduates have a very high success rate at lasting drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Because they have one of the highest documented success rates in the country they are proud to stand behind their services with a written guarantee of their results. “If any graduate of our program has any difficulty remaining drug or alcohol free within 6 months of completing our program, we will gladly accept the client back free of charge for an advanced treatment review program. This free advanced treatment review program does not include the price of airfare or the price of a medical detox, which is the responsibility of the review program participant. Medical detox is not always necessary, but may be required in the rare case that the client has been using the amount or type of drugs or alcohol that may require a medical detox before beginning the advanced treatment review process.”
One of the final areas of the survey asked of the graduates of the Eslove drug rehab program pertained to their quality of life over the last 30 days. The responses were as follows: No arrest: 98%; Zero days in jail: 100%; Working or enrolled in school: 75%; Positive relations with family: 87%. These exceptional statistics are to be commended.
