It’s true that drug or alcohol addiction is a condition not only the mind but also of the body. Bodies become dependent on drugs. As their tolerance grows, it takes more of a drug or alcohol to create the same effect that used to be created by a smaller amount. When the drug is withdrawn, the body goes through aches, pains and sickness as it tries to adjust back to its normal physical processes without drugs.
An individual becomes accustomed to dealing with life’s problems by drinking or using drugs. When high or drunk, it is harder to feel pain, fear, stress or anxiety. After a person becomes addicted, they may or may not feel particularly high after using drugs and may simply continue to use them so they can feel “normal” and continue to function.
To recover on both the physical and the mental sides of addiction, many people choose alternative recovery resources like non-conventional drug rehabilitation services. This may be after conventional services failed to provide help or it could be that the services they normally found did not match their own philosophies of recovery. Some people do not agree with professing that they will always be an addict or that they are helpless against addiction. These concepts may serve some people but others may need something different.
Narconon Recovery Programs
The Narconon drug recovery programs located on six continents around the world provide a thorough, alternative and drug-free approach to drug recovery. Addicts have been recovering using this system for more than forty-five years. Since seven out of ten recovering addicts stay sober after graduation from a Narconon program, the approach has been proven to be far more effective than most other rehabs. When asked, most conventional rehab programs will state a recovery rate of 16% to 20%.
Narconon uses Holistic Approach
The Narconon program is holistic, meaning that it addresses the whole person, the weaknesses that may have initially led to substance abuse, the damage created to both body and mind by the drugs, and the life skills needed to stay sober when back in life again. This repair does not happen overnight. It takes three to six months to effect this recovery. Some people take longer but when this happens, the cost does not increase. Each person moves through these recovery steps at his or her own rate. This way, they don’t go home before they have had a chance to master each skill that will be required to stay sober.
