Recovery from Drug Abuse is Possible at Narconon Arrowhead
As one example of the truth of people being able to recover their lives, the Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation program has been helping people recover long-lasting sobriety for more than forty-five years. Starting with one program in an Arizona State Prison in 1966, it has grown to a network of nearly fifty rehab centers on six continents today. Narconon offers a highly effective program that addresses the aspects of treatment suggested by the NIDA principles.
It includes a surprisingly tolerable drug-free withdrawal period followed by a comprehensive detox on the unique sauna-based Narconon New Life Detoxification program. Then one goes on to study several life skills courses which can help him to learn tools to live drug-free for the rest of his life. These courses result in someone who knows why they turned to drugs in the first place and can help a recovering user to know how to handle those situations in the future without the need for drugs.
Melissa turned to Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma more than four years ago to help her overcome her drug problem. She said that when she first arrived there her life had been in shambles and she'd been running from everything. She added that her family had not seen her in years, and her children had not known their real mother for several years while she'd been using drugs.
Melissa was able to turn her life around with the help of Narconon. She said, "Once I'd finished the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program, I felt better and I could think more clearly... because I didn't have the drugs in my body anymore... I felt a thousand times better."
Melissa added, "Now that I've gone through the program and I've been clean for a couple of years, my life is better than it's ever been since I've been born. I have my family back, my friends back and my abilities to create are back. I'm happy and I'm doing the things I want to do."
Narconon Helps People Recover Lasting Sobriety
Reading the headlines today makes it quite evident that drug abuse is a problem of epidemic proportion in the United States and elsewhere in the world. One example of a recent headline reads, "Prescription drug abuse is the leading cause of accidental death in North Carolina." The article goes on to state,"One in five teens reports is abusing prescription drugs for the purpose of getting high." North Carolina is not alone.
According to the most recent National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) illicit drug use in America has been increasing. According to the 2011 report, 22.5 million Americans aged 12 or older - or about nine percent of the population - had used an illicit drug or abused a psychotherapeutic medication in the past month. This is up from 8.3 percent in 2002. Psychotherapeutic medications include prescription pain relievers, stimulants, or tranquilizers.
While this may be alarming, it is even more troubling that about 90 percent of those who need treatment for substance abuse do not seek or get that treatment. There is a huge "treatment gap" in this country. In 2011, there were an estimated 21.6 million Americans who needed treatment for a drug or alcohol-related problem. Only a little over ten percent of these people struggling were able to find treatment.
One reason for this huge gap may be that the users do not believe that it is possible to overcome their addictions. However, it has been shown in numerous studies that overcoming dependence on any drug or to alcohol is possible with the right treatment program. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), scientific research since the mid 1970s has shown effective "treatment can help patients addicted to drugs stop using, avoid relapse, and successfully recover their lives." NIDA also outlines principles for effective treatment programs.
