Narconon Program Offers Hope for Addicts
Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers offer a drug-less, comprehensive approach to withdrawal which is soon followed by a very extensive detox known as the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program. This program fully addresses the issue of drug cravings. On the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program, one follows a strict daily regimen including moderate exercise, time spent in a dry, low-heat sauna, and plenty of nutritional supplementation. The combination of these factors allows the body to release residues of drugs that are lodged in its fatty tissues.
According to many people who have completed this step of the full eight-phase Narconon program, they report feeling refreshed and more optimistic about the future, as well as having far fewer or even no more drug cravings. They often report that they have the ability to think more clearly, unhindered by the mental fogginess of drugs.
Following this portion of the Narconon program, the recovering addict is able to focus better on studying. He will learn tools for drug-free living on six life skills courses. He can learn about how to better handle communication and will have the chance to confront issues that may have led him into drug abuse in the first place. He will also have an opportunity to recover his personal integrity and moral values, helping to alleviate the guilt that plagues addicts. Once he has completed all eight phases of the full Narconon program, he is ready to start on a new, drug-free life. He will have handled the guilt, depression and cravings that keeps one trapped in addiction. In fact, seven of every ten Narconon program completions achieve long-lasting sobriety after completing the full Narconon program.
Houston, Texas: Dark Heart of the Lone Star State?
With recent headlines proclaiming that Houston remains at the dark heart of the Lone Star State's growing prescription drug abuse problem, Houston needs an effective answer to the problem. Data on deaths from around the state show that the pill-popping problem has grown exponentially around Houston and in other parts of Texas. In the years from 2000 to 2008, deaths by accidental overdoses more than doubled.
Furthermore, one study of opioid abuse in Texas showed that the number of abuse cases for prescription painkillers had increased by 160 percent overall from 2000 to 2010. Tramadol abuse increased by more than five times, and buprenorphine (Suboxone, Subutex) abuse increased by more than 20 times in the past ten years.
