When families help an addicted loved one through rehab after rehab with no success, very often they begin to look for a different solution. The traditional rehabs of 28 or 30 days do not give most people time to rebuild lives that have been shattered by addiction. There are life skills that have been lost during the addiction, especially when it starts young or lasts a long time. It simply takes longer to recover physical health, mental stability, and the ability to make drug-free decisions.
Therefore many people search for alternative rehabs after one or more tries at conventional rehabs that resulted in relapse. Then again, some families seek an alternative addiction rehab because the traditional ones fail to match their own personal philosophies of what will bring about recovery.
The Narconon drug rehab program is a long-term program, residential in most locations, and brings about recovery without the use of drugs in any part of the treatment. It works by addressing the factors that start substance abuse and addiction in the first place and the other factors that keep addiction locked into a person’s life. For most people this means dedicating three to six months to this process. But three to six months after the years or even decades that some people lose to addiction is not a lot of time. Not when the result is lasting sobriety for seven out of ten graduates from the program.
Narconon offers an recovery experience that is definitely an alternative addiction rehab from start to end.
To start with, recovering addicts practice simple and basic communication skills until they learn to exert more control over their communication and actions toward others. This begins to pull them out of the drug fogs and withdrawn conditions that are so common during addiction.
Eliminating or Reducing Drug Cravings
The next step is one that goes a long way toward reducing or even eliminating cravings for the drug the recovering addict just left behind. Utilizing a low-heat sauna, moderate exercise and generous but very specific nutritional supplements, each person is able to flush out old drug toxins that are stored in the fatty tissues of the body. Research has shown that these stored residues are involved in the triggering of cravings, even years after the person stopped using drugs (or alcohol).
Over a thirty to sixty day period, each person’s progress is carefully supervised and monitored until the signs of recovery are clear. The results, according to statements of those going through the program, are clearer, quicker thinking, more energy and greatly reduced or even eliminated cravings. This takes each recovering person much closer to complete recovery.
But recovery at an alternative addiction rehab is not complete until a person finds relief from the guilt that plagues every addict and until they know how to make decisions that keep them on a drug-free path. They must learn which associates are safe and which will lead to problems, how to recover their personal integrity and self-respect, and how to turn bad situations around into positive ones. The theories behind these skills are learned and then practiced until each recovering person understands how to create a lasting, sober life.
