Glendale, California (PRWEB) January 11, 2014
The New Year brings the opportunity for a fresh start for American youth struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Narconon Fresh Start, a successful drug and alcohol rehabilitation program with eight centers across the United States has released details about their New Life Detoxification Method and its' success in treating young addicts throughout the country.
"I have my son back and not many parents I work with can say that," says Bradley Dehaven, Author and Host of Afflicted by Addiction. With over 45 years of proven success, the Narconon rehabilitation program has helped thousands of individuals and families like Dehaven's achieve a drug-free lifestyle.
With a mission of providing effective drug and alcohol prevention and treatment, the program is aimed at combating the ever-growing problem of drug and alcohol addiction in the United States. Releasing stats that include a success rate of over 76%, the drug rehabilitation program is making headway with the addiction epidemic experienced by American youth.
High Rehabilitation Rate Experienced Among Program Participants
Combined with cognitive behavioral modification, the Narconon Fresh Start New Life Detoxification Method has announced a 76% success rate in accomplishing true rehabilitation for participants. This success is based in part on a philosophy that emphasizes locating, confronting and resolving the specific causes of addiction and associated behaviors in each individual.
Rehabilitation is achieved through a combination of the detoxification program, cognitive behavioral modification and an educational life skills program. At the core of this structured program is a philosophy which rejects the disease model of addiction, a widely accepted belief that a person with an addiction has an incurable disease.
The Narconon Fresh Start program does not believe that a participant will always be an addict who must learn to cope with the addiction for the rest of their lives. Instead, this unique rehabilitation program achieves success by identifying and resolving the causes of addiction and detoxifying the body from the built up drug residuals that can plague an individual long after they have stopped using drugs.
Program Shows Detoxification Critical to Rehabilitation
The New Life Detoxification Program is a vital step in the Narconon treatment process. Many different types of drugs remain in the fatty tissues of an individual's body, long after a person has stopped taking drugs. The drug metabolites that remain in the body's tissues cause drug cravings, depression, physical and emotional stress, which can trigger a relapse.
Directors and counselors at Narconon Fresh Start base their program on the fact that drugs like heroin, cocaine, pcp, xanax, amphetamines, ecstasy, crystal meth, methamphetamine, alcohol and medicinal drugs like narcotic painkillers, sleeping pills, and other addictive pharmaceuticals continue to accumulate in the fatty tissue of the users body as they abuse the drug. These metabolites which remain stored in the body's fatty tissue are released into the blood stream at times of stress, causing severe cravings and relapse.
With the New Life Detoxification Program, these drug metabolites are removed from the body, eliminating the root cause of future physical cravings and relapse by cleansing the toxic drug residuals that are stored in the body's fatty tissues.
It is the combination of this philosophy and holistic approach to body, mind and spirit that has led to the program's impressive success.
Narconon Fresh Start Method Builds on Success of Drug Education Program
Last year, Narconon introduced their widely successful drug education program, The Truth About Drugs lecture series, which has been delivered to over 600, 000 students in the United States. Studies show that this evidence based prevention program has been effective in reducing drug use amongst high school students (Richard D. Lennox & Marie A. Cecchini. "The Narconon drug education curriculum for high school students: A non-randomized, controlled prevention trial." Substance Abuse, Treatment, Prevention and Policy: Web. March 19, 2008).
Goals for Narconon's eight rehabilitation centers this year will include building upon their recent success by continuing to educate youth, foster drug prevention and follow the evidence based Narconon Fresh Start approach to help addicts and their families achieve long-term success.
