Addiction destroys dreams, dreams of going to college and learning a career; dreams of success. When a son, daughter, spouse or other loved one has been overwhelmed with an addiction to drugs or alcohol, all these dreams come to a halt. Getting their next pill or drink becomes of utmost importance. If you are in Livonia, Michigan and searching for a drug recovery program to help your loved one, you can find effective help at the Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation center just a little over an hour away.
An addict needs an effective rehabilitation program that will reduce his or her cravings, the cravings that take over their lives and destroy future goals and objectives. They need an effective drug rehab in Livonia that will teach them to live a new life without drugs or alcohol. The Narconon program does exactly this. It helps the addicted person learn to live a productive and sober life.
Although there are a few choices of treatment centers in Livonia and nearby, many drug rehab facilities use substitute medications like buprenorphine, methadone or antidepressants. They are used in an attempt to ease the mental or physical problems when coming off drugs. However, these toxins stress the body's systems, already under stress from previous drug use. They are also addictive. This only makes the problem worse.
The Narconon residential center in Albion, Michigan offers a drugless program that reduces the chances of relapse. At the Narconon Freedom Treatment Center no drug substitutes are used. To ease the aches and pains of withdrawal, effective relaxation techniques assist the addict in getting through the process. Reorientation exercises help the addicted person in realizing where he is, a safe place where he can begin to live a drug-free life.
When a person has been on drugs, all of the toxins do not leave the body. Some parts of the drugs' chemical composition are stored, lodged in the fatty tissues of the body. Under the right conditions, they can release again into the blood stream, even years after drug use has ceased. These stored drugs have been known to contribute to the triggering of cravings, and have been known to create foggy thinking.
After withdrawal is completed, the recovering addict will take part in the innovative Narconon New Life Detoxification Program. This program has the addicted individual exercise to stimulate his or her circulation, spend time in a low-heat sauna and take certain vitamins and minerals that support detoxification. People have commented, once going through this procedure, that their thinking has become clearer and that they have more energy for life.
Once full detoxification has been done, the person begins a series of life skills courses. Since addiction usually begins with some kind of emotional or physical pain in the person's life, the factors that contributed to starting a life of drugs in the first place must be addressed. These courses address these and other areas that help an addict handle the stresses they are going to face when they reenter their day-to-day life.
An example of one of these courses is the Communication and Perception Course. When around any addict, you can see they have disabilities in communicating effectively and in perceiving his or her real environment. This course helps to bring the recovering addict back into communication and to restore his or her clear perceptions with a series of unique drills and exercises.
Livonia, Michigan lies within the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) of Wayne County.

However, between 2006 and 2008 in Michigan, an estimated 317,000 people aged 12 and over used an illicit drug within a month's period. It shows a desperate need for an effective drug recovery program, enabling addicts to live a lasting, drug-free life.
