Addicts need help, but often reject all efforts to help by family and friends. It can be quite heartbreaking to watch a loved one travel down such a destructive road and seem numb to the fact that it is destructive. People who want to help an addict get on the path to a lasting life without drugs or alcohol will be relieved to know that a Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation center is only two hours away from Holland, in Albion, Michigan.
The Narconon Freedom Treatment Center, a residential drug rehab facility, provides the help needed to get an addict off drugs and also to help him or her learn to live a sober lifestyle. It's time to get an addicted person the help they need, before getting a phone call you never want to receive ? that your loved one is in jail or has overdosed.
The Narconon program uses no drug substitutes, either in withdrawal or in other parts of the program. Rather than just mask the difficulties accompanying drug withdrawal and recovery, Narconon addresses the matter effectively.
The body of an addict lacks many nutrients that were depleted from previous drug use. A deficiency in certain nutrients can cause depression, tiredness and even pain. Narconon uses plenty of good nutrition in the program to alleviate problems with energy and health, without the use of other substitute medications.
Using other drugs to bring a person off drugs just ends up trading one addiction for another. Methodone, Suboxone and other medications used by many recovery programs are addictive. With a drugless program, Narconon proofs the person against possible relapse, which is more common when substitute medications are used.
The first step is withdrawal, with staff constantly monitoring vital signs, sleep and food intake. Included are nutritional supplements that support the body during detoxification. Some unique physical techniques assist in calming aches and pains. Gentle reorientation processes help the recovering addict to become aware of their surroundings and know they are in a completely drug-free environment.
The next step is the innovative Narconon New Life Detoxification Program. This detoxification allows the body to flush out residue drugs that have lodged in the fatty tissues of the body. Once these drugs are fully eliminated the person feels clear headed and bright.
Those who have gone down the road of addiction have experienced a deterioration of the quality of life that accompanies drug abuse. The Narconon program approaches this in a direct manner. To repair and bolster the quality of life of a recovering addict, the person does special life skills courses that teach him or her how to live a life without drugs.
One example of a life skill course taught in the Narconon program is the Changing Conditions in Life Course. This course teaches the individual how to start repairing relationships and situations in his or her life that came about because of addiction. Then each person learns a gradient approach to repairing those situations so they never have to resort to drugs to escape from their problems again.
Holland is in Ottawa County, and Ottawa County, just like many other parts of Michigan, isn't just having a problem with heroin and cocaine. Prescription drug abuse has escalated drastically in recent times. It is, in fact, the fastest-growing drug problem. Almost one-third of those aged 12 and over who began using drugs started out with using a prescription drug non-medically.
No matter what drug your loved one in Holland is addicted to, it is vital to get them the help they need to find the way to a productive and happy life without drugs. Narconon is the holistic and effective program for lasting sobriety. Contact the Narconon center today at 1-800-775-8750.
