Key Aspects in an Effective Drug Recovery Program

Narconon Warner Springs provides the same effective program that dozens of other Narconon centers worldwide provide to addicted people. Treatment consists of a drug-free withdrawal, a thorough detoxification and a unique approach to learning how to live a drug-free life.

Many drug rehabilitation centers use addictive substitute drugs like methadone and Suboxone in their programs. However, because these substitutes are addictive and may be prescribed for years after a short-term treatment program is completed, this is not an effective way to leave drugs behind.

Narconon uses no drug substitutes at any place in recovery treatment. A person needing medication for a physical condition would, of course, continue that medication on the advice of his physician, and we also work with medical detox services where it is medically necessary that a person be stepped down from their current level of drug use—as is often the case with benzodiazepines and alcohol. The goal is to safely help the person with the steps they need to take to live a truly drug-free life.

In the withdrawal phase at Narconon generous nutritional support is utilized, thus enabling the body to cope better with the stresses of withdrawing from drugs or alcohol. The nutrients lost in an unhealthy lifestyle of drug abuse are replenished as well.

In addition, experienced and trained staff carefully monitor each recovering addict with one-on-one attention, ensuring he or she is comfortable. The staff administer innovative techniques that help ease the discomforts of withdrawal. Reorientation exercises help with any confusion or disorientation from being in new, drug-free surroundings.

Unique Detoxification Rids the Body of Harmful Drug Residues

The Narconon New Life Detoxification is done by each person in recovery, shortly after withdrawal. Using a regimen of moderate exercise, nutritional supplements and time in a low heat sauna, this unique program flushes drug resides from the body. These stored drugs otherwise would remain lodged in the fatty tissues of the body for years after drug use has ceased, contributing to the triggering of drug cravings and causing foggy thinking. Eliminating them from the system is vital to lasting sobriety.

Another key factor in lasting recovery is preparing the individual to return to his life with the knowledge he needs to maintain his drug-free state. He needs to learn how to make the right decisions, regain his integrity and establish positive relationships. Narconon Life Skills Courses teach a recovering addict how to live a productive and ethical life without the need to turn to a pill or drink as a solution to his problems. One such course is the Narconon Personal Values Course. This course teaches the student how to restore his integrity and personal values, lost in a life of addiction. The relief achieved from learning how integrity is lost and then going through the practical steps to regain it gives him the capability to live an honest life once more.

Long Beach Exposed to Heavy Drug Trafficking

Long Beach lies within the Los Angeles High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (a designation used by law enforcement). Los Angeles County sees more drug production and distribution than any other area of the United States. Besides the Mexican border being in such close proximity, Long Beach with its seaport is another entry point for illicit drugs. With such a high availability of drugs, it is vital to have an effective drug rehab in Long Beach to ensure addicts have a way out of the trap of addiction and can continue to survive drug-free after going through a rehab program.

At Narconon Warner Springs, you can count on a holistic and thorough drug recovery so an addict can finally experience freedom from drug addiction and live a life of sobriety.
