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.

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.

A Sunshine Summit Lodge graduate is someone who is…

  • Not left with the urge to relapse
    The New Life Detoxification Program offered at all Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab centers (e.g. Sunshine Summit Lodge) addresses the physical aspect of relapse prevention. Clients go through a total body detoxification and purification process that flushes out the remaining drug residuals left behind by their substance abuse. The release of these drug toxins can happen at any point in the person’s recovery process or even years after they have been clean and sober. If not removed, these remaining drug metabolites will cause cravings when they are released into the client’s blood stream.Another part of Sunshine Summit Lodge’s drug rehab program is helping the program participant develop techniques that will aid them in avoiding relapse. Learning how to communicate effectively, how to focus on the present and future and not remain stuck in one’s past, developing the ability to confront the underlying issues that caused them to turn to drugs and provides them with the opportunity to clear their conscience of past transgressions and illicit behavior by taking full responsibility for their actions.
  • Able to live day to day without the use of medication
    Sunshine Summit Lodge’s drug-free withdrawal, detoxification and rehabilitation procedure utilizes methods developed by Mr. Hubbard and is officially recognized in many countries as the most effective drug addiction treatment available. 
  • Brought back to life
    Within just a few days to a week of doing the New Life Detoxification Program (body cleansing and purification process), the participants have color back in their face, their eyes are brighter, their energy level increases and they are sleeping well at night, waking up the next morning feeling refreshed. The mood swings from anger to depression and general uncomfortability and anxiety levels diminish and many will say they feel more centered and balanced and more themselves again. Many of the participants will say that they have not felt this good, healthy, and alive since some earlier pleasurable time in their life when they were playing sports or other athletic activity.
  • Confident
    Sunshine Summit Lodge uses Narconon Fresh Start’s life skills courses to educate their client’s on the communication skills necessary to confront and overcome the day to day problems associated with living drug-free. It gives the program participant the ability to be comfortable and confident within one’s self.
  • In control
    During the program participants time in the course room they learn specific actions to repair the past and present conditions in their life. They are given the tools with which they can continue to improve their conditions and situations in their future.
  • Able to achieve their goals without the use of drugs
    Sunshine Summit Lodge drug rehab is completely drug-free and does not use any drugs or medications to help their client’s achieve sobriety. Drug substitution is taking the addicted person off of one or multiple drugs and putting them on to other drugs that control their mood, sleep, anxiety level, energy level, etc. When it is all said and done, the person is still “controlled” by drugs.

For millions of individuals personally caught up in the trap of substance abuse or alcoholism, and the millions of others who are also directly or indirectly affected, Narconon Fresh Start such as Sunshine Summit Lodge drug rehab centers provide a real and workable route back to freedom from drug and alcohol abuse.

Help for Drug Addiction

If you think you have a problem with drug addiction, there is a lot of help out there for you. You have already taken the biggest step to recovery–admitting there is a problem. The next step is figuring out how to beat the addiction. The first thing you should do is get your addiction assessed. Every person is different, and every addiction is different. In order to ensure that you attend the right type of program to meet your recovery needs you should speak with an addiction counselor. Locating an addiction counselor can be accomplished by contacting your insurance company, conducting a search on the web, speaking with your primary physician for a referral or even contacting a prospective drug rehab program you are considering attending. When you speak with the counselor it is imperative that you are forthcoming with the details of your drug use. You will have to describe any and all effects the addiction has had on your life and the lives of others. This can be a very intimate and revealing process, but it is essential to making your way to recovery. This helps the counselor to make an accurate judgment as to what level and duration of care is necessary to help you end you cycle of addiction.

True Recovery

What does it look like to truly be recovered from drug addiction or alcoholism? A person who is fully recovered from their addiction doesn’t need to take medication, doesn’t need to attend meetings and doesn’t refer to themselves as an addict any longer. They have conquered their physical addiction problem in addition to addressing the underlying issues that drove them to use in the first place. A person who is fully recovered from their substance dependence is able to stand on their own two feet and face life’s challenges, life’s ups and downs and tests to their sobriety without faltering.

Narconon Fresh Start is a drug rehab program unlike other traditional rehabs. Graduates of their drug rehab centers do not go to meetings for the rest of their life, they do not take any drug replacement therapy and they do not think of themselves as addicts any longer. With an extremely high success rate for lasting sobriety their treatment programs are leaders in the field of helping addicted individuals put their substance use behind them and set out to create the drug-free life for themselves they have always envisioned.

Drug and Alcohol Addiction are NOT Voluntary Behaviors

While a person’s choice to try drugs or alcohol was initially a voluntary choice, their progression into full-fledged addiction goes beyond their personal decision. No drug abuser has ever thought to themselves that they would like to become an addict; it is a process that happens overtime often without the user’s awareness of what is happening to them.

As a drug or alcohol abuser continues to use their body becomes accustomed to having the substance present at all times. Their brain also begins to rely on the substance to feel “normal” and function properly. This progression is not something that the user has control over. They are often blind to the changes taking place in their body and mind; to the drug or alcohol user their continued drug use is a way to solve whatever problem in their life they are looking to escape from.

When they attempt to decrease the amount they use, or stop using all together they will experience withdrawal symptoms. Some substances such as alcohol, heroin and other opioids cause the person to become physically addicted to the substance, thereby causing them physical withdrawal symptoms when they stop taking it. Their body calls out to them through the pain, letting them know that if they were just to take the drug or drink they would put an end to their physical suffering…for now at least. This cycle goes on and on, dragging the addicted person deeper into the downward spiral of addiction.

Drug rehab programs such as Narconon Fresh Start’s network of treatment centers are able to address not only the client’s physical addiction problem, but the underlying issues that drove the individual to abuse the substance in the first place. Through their entirely drug-free program, clients become students learning invaluable life lessons about communication, intrapersonal skills and stress management. Each client works at their own pace through the drug rehab program and is never rushed to complete any portion of treatment in a pre-specified period of time. This is because true recovery takes as long as it takes and cannot be rushed. While the majority of program participants complete the Narconon Fresh Start drug rehab program in an average of three months, those who need longer to progress through the program have the ability to do so.
