When searching for help for a loved one lost to drug addiction, the options can appear intimidating and confusing. But it truly is possible to leave addiction behind and live a happy life. The Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation program in Michigan offers the ideal holistic treatment needed for drugless withdrawal and steps to help the newly recovered addict reenter day to day life without needing to turn to a pill or a drink for relief.
Grand Rapids, located in Kent County, has known its share of crime and violence resulting from drug abuse in the city. And age isn't a barrier. About 103,000 adolescents in Michigan have used an illicit drug within the past month. One by one, they need assistance to once again lead a drug-free life with self-respect and integrity.
The reality is that a drug recovery program is desperately needed for Grand Rapids that doesn't just substitute one drug for another. Many programs use substitute medications during the entire treatment period, and these drugs are themselves addictive. Becoming addicted to methadone or buprenorphine is just as bad as being addicted to any other drug. Doctors are known to continue to prescribe these substitute drugs for years into the future.
At the Narconon Freedom Treatment Center, a residential drug rehab facility in Albion, Michigan, an individual can get lasting recovery. The program offers a completely drug-free yet tolerable withdrawal step that is bolstered by nutritional support and one-on-one care by knowledgeable staff.
Once the withdrawal is complete, the recovering addict then goes through the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program. With moderate exercise, nutritional support and some time in a low-heat sauna, the body is able to flush out residual drugs that have lodged in the fatty tissues. These toxins are stored in the body after drug use and can cause slowed, foggy thinking and have been known to be a contributing factor in triggering drug cravings, even years after being off drugs.
Once the toxins are flushed out, the individual feels much relief and is ready to face the world once again. But the Narconon program is not yet complete. Next comes a series of educational courses that repair life skills and teach the recovering addict to be better equipped to handle their new life without drugs.
Once such course is the Communication and Perception Course. Drug and alcohol abuse impairs the addict's ability to focus on any goals or objectives they have. They can't stick with it enough to carry through. Addiction also harms a person's ability to communicate effectively. With this course, communication exercises and drills are employed to help a person manage in difficult situations. Other exercises help increase perceptions and enable the person to achieve a fresh viewpoint on life.
Crime and violence often stem from drug use. It is not just cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine that are the problems. Prescription medications are often abused, and this occurs throughout the United States, not just in Grand Rapids. In 2009, 16 million people, age 12 and up, had abused prescription pain relievers, stimulants and other drugs. Even scarier is that as of 2010, a study showed that many junior high and high school students had abused OxyContin at least one time in the prior year.
With so many becoming the effect of drugs, unable to escape the prison of addiction, it is necessary to intervene and provide the person with an effective way to leave drugs behind. The Narconon program is the effective way to lasting sobriety. Contact the Narconon center today at 1-800-775-8750.
