An addict may not realize how much he influences his loved ones regarding drug or alcohol abuse. An addict's child not only suffers the neglect often found when a parent is an addict, but can himself be influenced into using drugs or alcohol. The parent of an addict can see the damage that addiction is doing to his or her child, but often doesn't know what to do. Addiction is a destructive way of life, to put it mildly. When a loved one is addicted, it is vital to find an effective drug rehab for Sandy Springs that will provide lasting sobriety. The Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Norcross provides just that, so an addict can live a happy and productive life without drugs.
Narconon of Georgia drug and alcohol treatment center in Norcross is only twenty minutes away from Sandy Springs. Located in a lovely wooded setting, it is the perfect place for an addict to find relief from addiction. For more than forty-five years, the Narconon program has been saving addicted lives.
Not all drugs leave the body when a person has stopped drug use. These stored toxins cause foggy and muddled thinking. They also are known to be involved in the triggering of drug cravings, even years after drug use has ceased. With a thorough detoxification, residual drugs that are lodged in the fatty tissues of the body are eliminated from the recovering addict's system, helping to proof the person against relapse. This is important in giving him the best chance at a truly drug-free life.
The Narconon New Life Detoxification Program flushes these toxic residues from the body through the use of moderate exercise, nutritional supplements and time in a low heat sauna. Many who finish this innovative detox state that their drug cravings have disappeared.
Drugless withdrawal is also an important phase of the Narconon treatment. An addict does not take very good care of himself, not eating correctly, often staying up for days at a time and stressing the body with the intake of poisonous drugs. With generous nutritional support during the withdrawal, essential nutrients are replenished which greatly strengthen the body and help make withdrawal more tolerable. Additionally, the experienced and trained staff administer relaxation techniques that ease the discomforts.
Another key part of recovery is for the recovering addict to learn the life skills that will enable him to make the right decisions in life and deal with any stresses and obstacles that face him. When he goes back home after finishing rehab, he will encounter many of the same problems he had before entering rehab. Some of these situations may have led him into using drugs in the first place.
The Narconon Life Skills Courses teach the recovering person how to restore his own integrity, how to deal with people who will pull him down, how to communicate better and much more. One such course is the Way to Happiness Course. This course provides twenty-one effective guidelines in leading an ethical and happy life. Some of the concepts covered are obeying the law, fulfilling obligations and taking care of oneself.
When numerous incidents relating to drug dealing and other drug-related crime and violence occur almost daily in and around Atlanta, it is important to find effective drug rehab for Sandy Springs to help those with an addiction problem. There are too many illicit substances on the streets, and it is too easy to obtain them.
According to reports, one Atlanta area drug dealer was busy supplying both Whitney Houston and her daughter with cocaine and marijuana. Besides a reported addiction to cocaine, Whitney was found to have downed a mix of drugs just before her death, and a number of benzodiazepines were found in the room where she died. These drugs are potentially lethal when used in combination with alcohol.
Early in 2011, a Sandy Springs man was involved in a Federal drug bust that brought to justice a drug trafficking ring who were distributing cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana. They used tire stores as fronts for their dealings, and used tires to package the drugs for transporting. Guns, a million dollars and a meth lab were also confiscated in the investigation.
However, even with those arrests made, drug-related crime and violence continues. Recently an Atlanta man was murdered at a Sandy Springs apartment complex. This murder was allegedly the result on a drug deal gone bad. Another man was wounded in the incident. With street gangs and other criminal groups both in Sandy Springs, Georgia and the Atlanta area making money from drug transport and distribution, it is vital to ensure a drug rehab can make a real difference in someone's life - providing him or her lasting sobriety.
