Substance abuse statistics from around the world are staggering. Drug use is also the underlying factor in many of todayÂs societal problems including, crime, child abuse, spread of HIV and other diseases, auto accidents, lost productivity and much more. Entire nations are driven to apathy concerning the subject of drug addiction due to a lack of workable solutions, and in many areas very few rehabilitation centers exist at all to even begin to address the issue.
The very first step to drug rehabilitation is to get the addict off the drugs and through the withdrawal stage. One method that is receiving a lot of attention is used by the NarcononÂ® Drug Rehabilitation and Education Program. The Narconon Program is drug-free, (meaning substitute drugs are not used in the rehabilitation process) and achieves an extremely high success rate for helping individuals overcome addiction.
Narconon programs exist in 40 countries around the world. Narconon International President Clark Carr has visited a number of countries in recent years at the request of government officials and rehabilitation professionals and found that they are desperate for a workable method that will help their people. Here in the U.S., where we do have thousands of treatment centers and other substance abuse programs, we still find 23 million drug addicts searching for solutions.
Drug use results in dramatic vitamin and mineral deficiencies in the body. It is only when a person stops taking the drug that the physical pain and emotional distress caused by these deficiencies become evident, so much so that seemingly the only solution for the addict is to take more of the drug.
The Narconon program, which uses the drug-free social education methodology of American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard, provides drug-free withdrawal services as the first step in its full rehabilitation program. The premier facility of the international network, Narconon Arrowhead, is fully accredited by the prestigious Rehabilitation Accreditation Commission (CARF) and is certified by the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services (ODMHSAS) to deliver non-medical detoxification.
A book is also available as a self-help guide to drug-free withdrawal for general public seeking solutions. The NarcononÂ® First Step book, published by Narconon International, teaches individuals how to help someone through withdrawal by applying nutritional supplements and exercises that promote extroversion. These steps, in the right combination and sequence, aid the addict through what could normally be an extremely difficult process. Results are usually achieved in less time and more comfortably than going through the process Âcold turkeyÂ and do not carry the added weight of side effects from prescription drugs.
The NarcononÂ® First Step book is available for purchase through Narconon Arrowhead. To find out more about the program and order a book or to get help for a loved one in need, contact Narconon Arrowhead today by calling 1-800-468-6933 or visit http://www.stopaddiction.com.
