When someone you love is struggling with alcohol addiction, not just any alcohol rehab program will do. With thousands of alcohol and drug rehabs available around the world, it can be difficult to settle on one choice. But the better one's first choice, the more likely it is that the person will not have to experience the revolving door of rehab that many people experience. In other words, they leave rehab and go back to life, fail at sobriety and then return to rehab.
When the first choice of rehab is a program that has proven results, then your first choice could be your last choice. In Narconon centers around the world, those seeking an alcohol rehab program and finding Narconon find that success seven out of ten times, one of the best success rates anywhere.
One of the reasons that Narconon programs succeed with people seeking alcohol rehab programs is that the Narconon system of running an alcohol rehab program addresses all the major components of addiction with effective procedures. What life issues resulted in the person starting to use alcohol in the first place? What life skills does the person need in order to successfully resist temptation and make drug-free decisions? These questions are answered by the phases of the Narconon drug and alcohol rehab program.
The addiction handling starts with a humane and generally tolerable withdrawal process. Understandably, some people withdrawing from alcohol need to complete a medical detox first in order to get off alcohol consumption safely. If this is not needed, each person going through the Narconon withdrawal is supported with generous doses of nutrition and lots of one on one work with the staff. Gentle re-orientation exercises and physically relaxing assists help each person get through withdrawal in a positive mood and relative physical comfort.
Once this is done, each person begins basic and simple communication skills exercises. Anyone around an addict understands that a person using alcohol or drugs to deal with life pulls back from those around him or her. The communication skills practice sessions begin to take down the walls, and will be repeated later in the whole recovery process.
After freshening up the person's interaction with people and things in his or her immediate environment, each person engages in the unique Narconon New Life Detoxification Program, a process of using nutrition, moderate exercise and time in a low-heat sauna to flush out old alcohol toxins. This process has been proven to remove old, stored toxins from the body and the result by the attestation of those completing is that this helps reduce or even sometimes eliminate cravings.
Thorough life skills training follows, with several breakthrough activities encompassed in these steps. Key among them is the relief of guilt, no small matter as guilt is one of the major factors that drives people back into alcohol abuse or keeps them there. When the drugs or alcohol wear off, the person is again hit by the guilt of the actions they have done or failed to do, as a result of their alcoholism. To blot out that perception, the person drinks again. But when guilt is truly relieved, the person's freedom from alcoholism increases.
