When a loved one has become addicted to drugs, it is a constant struggle and a constant worry - seeing your child, a relative or friend so hopeless, defeated and giving up on life. Addiction ruins lives, turning an addict into some other person than the one you knew before. He or she lies, steals, does anything to get the money needed for another pill or drink.
The Narconon drug and alcohol rehabilitation center in Harlingen, Texas serves all of Texas with a holistic and effective treatment for addiction. If you are in a northern Texas city such as Dallas, Plano and Amarillo, the Narconon Arrowhead facility in southeast Oklahoma is just a few hours drive away.
Our program is an alternative to the short-term or twelve-step programs available. With more than forty-five years of experience in saving addicted lives, the Narconon drug rehabilitation program has a high success rate in providing lasting recovery.
In Harlingen, Narconon South Texas is the perfect location to achieve lasting sobriety. The comfortable accommodations in the beautiful Rio Grande Valley are a place to relax and concentrate on the innovative steps on the program. Nutritious meals and outdoor recreation keep the recovering addict healthy.
The unique Narconon drug rehab program gives an addicted person a real chance for a happy and fulfilling life without drugs.
The first step is a drug-free withdrawal. It is much more effective doing a drugless withdrawal and using no addictive substitute drugs throughout the program. Narconon does not use any substitute drugs in its treatment. Withdrawal is made more tolerable through the use of generous nutritional support and one-on-one work with expert staff. The experienced and trained staff administer relaxation techniques that help ease the aches, pains and other discomforts of withdrawal. Addicts usually feel a bit confused and disoriented when they first arrive for the program. Therefore, staff also administer innovative reorientation exercises to help the person become accustomed to his new surroundings.
In addition, once the person has completed withdrawal, he will learn basic communication skills which help him get more in control over his attitudes and views of his life and environment. These communication skills also help him move forward on the treatment program more effectively.
The next phase of the holistic Narconon rehabilitation is the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program. Lasting around a month, this detox employs a regimen of moderate exercise, nutritional supplements and some time spent in a low-heat sauna to rid the system of the drug residues that have built up in a life of addiction. Drugs do not fully leave the body after drug use has ceased. Drug residues become lodged in the fatty tissues of the body. It is important to flush out these stored poisons from the system.
Residual drugs have been known to be involved in triggering drug cravings, even years after a person has stopped using drugs. They cause muddled and confused thinking. Once these toxins are eliminated from the body, those who have finished this part of the program often comment how much brighter they feel and that cravings have disappeared.
When someone is addicted to drugs and alcohol, so much damage is done to his mind, body, spirit and to his relationships with family and friends. To repair this damage and to rebuild the life skills necessary to live a drug-free life, the Narconon Life Skills Courses were developed. These courses teach the recovering addict how to avoid situations and people that could influence him negatively and perhaps lead him once again into drug abuse. He will learn how to repair situations and relationships that were damaged by an addicted lifestyle. He will be shown how to move forward in his life without turning to a pill or a drink to solve his problems.
As an example, one Narconon Life Skills Course shows how to improve one's life by restoring integrity and personal values. Another in this series of courses provides the individual with twenty-one concepts in a non-religious and common sense moral code that guides him in the right direction.
The North Texas region sees extensive distribution and abuse of cocaine and other illicit drugs, resulting in escalating crime and violence. The same is true for South Texas, perhaps even more so due to the close proximity to the Mexican border. The government has designated certain populated parts of the state as High Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas, indicating the need for additional law enforcement resources to halt the flow of illicit substances. But something desperately needed is an effective drug rehab in Texas that can help those who have become addicted, helping them turn their lives around.
Narconon is an alternative treatment program that gives an addict the chance to live a sober and happy life, achieving his dreams and developing positive relationships.
To curb the storm of drug abuse in Texas, it is vital to have an effective drug rehab that addresses the whole individual, turning an addict's life around and putting him on the road to lasting recovery.
