When a drug or alcohol addict decides he has had enough of the miserable lifestyle of addiction, he will very often go to family for help. This takes courage, because the first thing he (or she) will have to face is withdrawal. If the addicted person has ever tried to withdraw from his drug of choice before, he knows how sick he can feel and how uncomfortable. However, finding a drug rehab that really takes care of the recovering addict as he goes through withdrawal can make a very big difference in the person's willingness to finally get clean.
Narconon Arrowhead is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that addresses all aspects of addiction. The spirit, body and mind all are affected when a person is addicted and the Narconon program takes each into account. Narconon Arrowhead is only a little over five hours from Kansas City in Canadian, Oklahoma. In a peaceful setting next to a lake and lovely forested hills surrounding, this center is the ideal environment for the participant so he can deal with his addiction and move calmly through the program.
Here the recovering addict goes through a withdrawal that is more comfortable than most. By having nutritional support, the body is bolstered and better able to tolerate the aches and pains that accompany the withdrawal process. Trained staff carefully monitor each person; in fact, they are on call day or night to assist the participant. They ensure the recovering individual is getting enough sleep and eating correctly. These personnel also deliver unique relaxation techniques which help the person more effectively cope with withdrawal. Some of those who have tried withdrawal at other rehab facilities have said that this is the easiest one they ever experienced.
The next phase of treatment is the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program.
This is a detox unlike any other. Using a unique combination of vitamins and minerals, time in a sauna and some moderate daily exercise, the sauna detox is very efficient at flushing out residual drugs which have remained in the body's tissues. These drug residues have been associated with sparking drug cravings, which is a large part of relapse when it occurs. By getting rid of these residues from the body, the cravings can be greatly reduced or completely eliminated, thus the chance of relapse is much less.
A vital phase of the program, and one which truly helps a recovering addict remain drug-free, is the life skills training that is provided as the final phase of recovery. A series of six courses gives the student the tools needed to live a life without drugs and the knowledge he can apply so he won't need to turn to substance abuse again. An example of one of these courses is the Personal Values and Integrity Course where the recovering addict finds he can now take responsibility for his misdeeds in an addicted lifestyle. He sheds the guilt he feels and is ready to move on to a more productive and happy life.
With more than 13,800 admissions for drug rehab treatment in 2011, Kansas has a very definite drug and alcohol problem. The primary drug that residents of the state seek treatment for is marijuana. Following that, they enter rehab for alcohol used in combination with a secondary drug, then alcohol alone. There were more than 1,900 admissions alone for dangerous and highly addictive stimulants such as methamphetamine.
Law enforcement in Kansas cities have as a primary concern the use of meth. This dangerous drug comes into the state by many modes of transport, including the highways and airlines. With meth, cocaine, heroin, club drugs and marijuana so easily obtained on the street, Kansas City needs an effective drug rehab program that can provide lasting recovery.
Narconon Arrowhead is just a short distance away and provides a full package of recovery services to achieve lasting sobriety. The staff are proud of how many recovering addicts have gone through the program and remain drug-free for years, and still counting. It didn't take a miracle. It just took pursuing the solution available at this highly successful drug rehab located right in the middle of the country - Narconon Arrowhead.
