Drug addiction is a terrible and lonely place, and addicts are often numb to it, desperately trying to find the next pill or drink to stop the cravings. If a member of your family or a friend has been lost in the labyrinth of drug abuse, an effective program must be found. Addicted individuals need a clearly marked map out to get on the road to lasting recovery. The Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation center provides just such a map and is the road to a life without drugs.
In Florida, you will find two Narconon rehabilitation facilities not far from Fort Lauderdale. Clearwater has Narconon Florida, an outpatient treatment center where the addict can hold down a job or continue with school while they recover. In Spring Hill, the Narconon Suncoast Rehabilitation Center is a long-term residential facility, providing Narconon's alternative treatment in a comfortable setting.
Drugless recovery is an important part of Narconon's effective program. Doctors in other rehab facilities often use substitute medications in an attempt to ease the difficulties of recovery. They will continue to prescribe these medications after rehab and often for years into the future. However, drugs such as methadone, Suboxone, buprenorphine and others are addictive, and a new problem is created. With a new addiction, the chances of relapse are much higher as the recovering person has never learned to deal with a life without drugs.
The Narconon program is unlike other drug rehab centers because no substitute drugs are used at any time as part of the program. The services at Narconon address the mental and physical factors contributing to a life of drug addiction, but with holistic methods that further proof an addict from relapse in the future. Narconon has a 70% success rate.
The first step of the Narconon treatment program is a drugless withdrawal. At Narconon, the recovering addict doesn't need drug substitutes to experience a tolerable withdrawal. Generous nutritional support provides important nutrients that are needed to replace those depleted from drug use. Unique relaxation techniques ease difficulties experienced by the addict as he goes through withdrawal. Reorientation procedures work to help the addict relate to his new safe and drug-free environment.
Once withdrawal is complete, the recovering addict does the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program. This innovative detoxification flushes out drug residues that have lodged in the fatty tissues of the body. Drug residues have been known to contribute to triggering drug cravings, even years after drug use ceased. Using an exact regimen of moderate exercise, nutritional supplements and time spent in a low-heat sauna, these stored toxins are eliminated from the body.
For an addict to maintain sobriety when back out in his day-to-day life, it's vital that he be given information that will assist him in handling life better. Narconon Life Skills Courses provide just such an education. These courses restore or rebuild the life skills destroyed by a life of drugs. A recovering addict will learn to handle stress and make the right decisions without reaching for a pill or a drink.
For instance, the Communication and Perception Course teach an individual to be able to confront tough situations and give a renewed ability to remain focused. The Ups and Downs in Life Course shows a student how to develop positive relationships and avoid those that will jeopardize his new life of sobriety.
Fort Lauderdale lies within the South Florida High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area. This designation by law enforcement permits a higher concentration of resources into the area. However, it's an ongoing battle, with controlled prescription drugs in wide availability. Besides heroin, cocaine and other illicit drugs, opioid pain relievers such as codeine, morphine and oxycodone (OxyContin) are widely distributed.
With Fort Lauderdale a hotbed of drug activity, it is vital that a recovered addict has armor protecting him from relapse into a life of addiction. Narconon is the solution to saving addicted lives. Call Narconon at 1-800-775-8750.
