The Narconon program, first established in 1966, is unique. It is a proven "get off and stay off drugs" rehab program. In addition to becoming drug-free, a Narconon graduate knows how to communicate, live a clean and ethical life, help others and contribute considerably to his family, friends and society at large.
The key to the success of the Narconon program is the drug rehabilitation methods developed by author and humanitarian, L. Ron Hubbard. This methodology has been used successfully by hundreds of thousands of people around the world to rid themselves of the need for drugs and to regain control of their lives.
Mr. Hubbard developed exact techniques to deal with the physical and mental problems brought about by drug use. None of these solutions involves the use of any drug.
The Narconon program is arranged in a series of standardized steps which are done in an exact sequence. These techniques and learning programs help the individual withdraw from current drug use, get into communication with others and the environment, remove the residual drugs from his body, gain control of himself and his environment and reach the point where he can take responsibility, not only for himself, but others as well. The program also addresses and handles the reason why the individual started using drugs in the first place and arms him with the knowledge and certainty he needs to lead a happy, drug-free life.
This first step of the program assists the individual to cease current drug use rapidly and with minimal discomfort through proper nutrition, vitamins and care from experienced Narconon staff.
The Communications Course
This course helps a person to be there comfortably in the presence of another person and gets him into better communication with others and with the environment.
There are eight exercises on this course. Each is a specific drill on the parts of communication and how to get oneself understood and how to effectively communicate with others.
The Narconon New Life Detoxification Procedure
This step of the program removes drug residues and other toxic substances from the body. These residues remain locked in fatty tissues of the body and can be released into the blood stream years after the person has stopped taking drugs. The residuals can cause cravings for more drugs and thus need to be eliminated from the body which is accomplished through an exact regimen of exercise, sauna and nutritional supplements, ridding the fatty tissues in the body of drug residues.
The Learning Improvement Course
gives the student the ability to study and retain knowledge along with the ability to recognize and overcome barriers to study and learning.
The student learns data on the three barriers to study. He learns how to clear his misunderstanding of a word in dictionary, how to do demonstrations of concepts so he can easily grasp them and how to spot and handle any difficulties in his study.
The Communication & Perception Course
gives the student the ability to get into full communication with others and his environment. The student really polishes up his communication skills acquired earlier in the program and then does a series of new exercises which fully extroverts the student and gets his attention off of himself and onto the environment. This greatly raises perception and ability to handle the environment and control his life.
The student also helps another student do the exercises. He takes responsibility for helping another, which increases his responsibility and ability to handle life and help others.
The Ups and Downs in Life Course
gives the student the ability to spot and handle those influences in his environment that would cause him to lose any gains he has made.
He learns the characteristics of the social personality as well as those of the anti-social personality so that he can spot the difference and better choose his friends and associates. Completing this course makes the student less susceptible to those who would influence him to revert to drugs.
