Drug Rehab


When drug addiction strikes, it is devastating to the individual as well as to his family and friends. When one suddenly finds himself faced with the need to find drug rehab for a loved one, it is essential to find a drug rehab program that you can know is effective and one you can trust to help your loved one achieve lasting sobriety.

Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation provides a very effective drug rehab program in several parts of the United States and about 30 other countries. It uses a drugless withdrawal followed by a very effective detox and provides several life skills courses. The full eight-phase program is offered at more than fifty centers in all parts of the world.

Narconon is a long-term, comprehensive drug and alcohol rehab program that usually will take anywhere from three to five months to complete. Most Narconon drug rehab centers are residential, although there are a few which are outpatient, allowing the person to continue to work or attend school. The Narconon program is so effective that seventy percent of its graduates remain drug-free long after completing the full program.

The Narconon program in South Texas is located near Harlingen, in the Rio Grande Valley. Here, in very comfortable surroundings, one can relax and concentrate his (or her) full attention on the innovative, holistic Narconon program. From the first day on the program, participants notice the different attitude of the Narconon staff members. Each one knows that recovery is fully possible, and they assist all program participants to succeed by following a simple, step-by-step methodology.

Texas Location Causes Aggravated Addiction Problem

Effective drug rehab is needed all over the country, but especially in Texas. In this border state, there are more challenges faced by drug enforcement personnel as well as the everyday citizen.

Drug-related violence in Texas as well as the rest of the United States is well known. Texas is particularly at risk due to its proximity to Mexico and the heavy drug trafficking channels that bring addictive substances into the US. Youth are particularly at risk. Along the border, the incidence of cocaine use among the young is twice as high as the rate of use just one county further into the state. And the trafficking of heroin into Texas gave rise to the epidemic of "cheese" overdose deaths around the Dallas area. "Cheese" was a mixture of heroin and Tylenol PM, all chopped up to resemble parmesan cheese. But the young people were not told they were being sold heroin, just that they would have a good time.

Texas Alcohol and Drug Addiction Trends

The unfortunate fact is that alcohol is the primary drug of abuse in Texas. Nearly 30% of those admitted for any substance abuse treatment are alcohol-addicted. Heroin has been used increasingly by younger people, with an increase in heroin use by people in their twenties from about 35 percent of all heroin admissions for treatment in 2005 to 45 percent in 2011. In fact, of all those who were admitted for treatment nearly 13 percent were admitted in 2011 for heroin abuse. Cocaine abuse and crack cocaine abuse combined accounted for 14 percent of the substance abuse admissions.

For those who become addicted to any drug or alcohol it is a huge challenge to overcome this addiction. Even students as young as 12 years of age are exposed to heroin, cocaine and crack cocaine. This means as early as seventh grade or even earlier, effective drug education and measures to prevent drug abuse must be taken. In the State of Texas, it is therefore even more essential that the battle against drug addiction be won. If the demand for drugs is effectively reduced, there would not be such a ready market for drugs in Texas. Narconon offers both an effective drug education and effective drug rehab program to help achieve demand reduction. For help in battling drug addiction, find out more by calling us today.
