Narconon Arrowhead, an effective drug and alcohol rehabilitation program located in southeastern Oklahoma, has a somber message this holiday. The facility is remembering the lives lost to drug addiction and helping clients at the facility learn skills for permanent recovery. This month Narconon Arrowhead will be promoting ‘Recovery Through the Holidays,’ a campaign that celebrates those in recovery and who have entered treatment while not forgetting the hundreds of thousands of less fortunate individuals who have lost their lives to addiction.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, deaths from drug overdoses have been increasing steadily over the last two decades. Every day in the United States 114 people die because of overdoses and another 6,748 are treated through emergency rooms across the United States.

The Barriers to Recovery – Guilt, Cravings & Depression

The barriers to successful recovery for those addicted to drugs and alcohol are guilt, drug & alcohol cravings and addiction related depression. Often, when an individual starts using drugs they are unaware of the challenges of quitting. They find themselves trapped by addiction and the guilt felt because of past transgressions committed while ‘under the influence.’ The physical cravings for drugs last months and even years after their first use making it seem impossible to quit. And, the emotional rollercoaster that addiction takes them on causes feelings of rock-bottom depression where the user continues to go back to drugs to temporarily ‘feel better.’

In a recent letter, CEO of Narconon Arrowhead, Gary Smith said, “The cravings, depression and guilt that consume an addicted person’s life will be the formula for disaster that will cause abusers to over-medicate to the point of dying themselves or taking the life of an innocent bystander.”

However, there is a way out through effective treatment that addresses all three barriers. The program at Narconon Arrowhead specializes in handling the physical components of addiction through the use of a detoxification method called The New Life Detoxification Program. Through this program clients can cleanse the body of drug toxins and other impurities. Once this is complete Narconon rehabilitates clients through Life Skills Training. This simple but effective approach focuses on applying simple but powerful technology that, if used, contributes to life-long sobriety.
