lake in Spring Hill Florida

Spring Hill, Florida is an attractive suburban-turning-rural area in Hernando County. It sits right at the north end of a metropolitan area with St. Petersburg to the southwest and Tampa to the southeast. While Spring Hill itself only has a population of about 70,000, it is influenced by the drug trafficking, abuse and addiction problems of its larger neighbors.

Spring Hill is very lucky to have an effective drug rehab nearby in Clearwater. The Narconon Suncoast Rehabilitation Center is one of the dozens of locations around the world that offer the Narconon drug rehab program.

The Narconon drug rehab protocol begins with a withdrawal process that does not include substitute medications. Where a step down is medically required in the case of certain drugs such as benzodiazepines or heavy alcohol use, we also work with medical detox services so they can be weaned down before starting the Narconon program. This puts them safely on the road to living a truly drug-free life.

On the drug-free withdrawal at Narconon, the use of generous nutritional support and one-on-one work with the staff helps calm both body and mind, relieving much of the discomfort and pain. This creates a positive start to one’s sobriety.

The exclusive Narconon detoxification phase helps stabilize addiction recovery

After withdrawal, each recovering addict goes through the Narconon New Life Detoxification, a sauna-based program in which a person exercises moderately and takes generous doses of nutritional supplements. This combination flushes toxins out of the body that remain long after drug abuse stops. Drug residues tend to remain lodged in fatty tissues of the body and can be involved in the triggering of cravings, even years later. When the residues are gone, most of those completing talk about a great reduction in cravings and how much clearer their thinking is.

What must occur next is that each person must repair the damage done by addiction and its lifestyle. Treatment is not complete until a person knows how to weather the challenges of life without deciding to use drugs or alcohol again. This is approached in many ways, one of which is to help each person recover their own personal integrity again. In the life skills component of the Narconon program, each person is guided through a process of learning how integrity is lost and how it can be restored. At the end of this step, it is very common for those in recovery to state that they feel a great relief. This is a big step toward living an honest, productive life again.

Narconon provides recovery in the midst of increasing prescription drug abuse and addiction

For several years, the illicit sales and abuse of prescription drugs has been big news in Florida. But in the last two years, the problems have stepped up a few notches. While legislators have passed laws to help control Florida’s “pill mills,” the situation is not totally handled.

In March 2011, an investigation into pill mills resulted in the arrest of 76 people who thought they could break the law and profit from it. As of 2009, deaths across Central Florida related to prescription drug abuse were more than five times the number of deaths related to heroin and cocaine combined.

At the same time, supplies of cocaine and methamphetamine are abundant. Murders in Hernando County related to drug use, thefts and sales have increased considerably in the last two years. Indoor marijuana grow operations across several counties have increased, with growers snapping up homes that were foreclosed on to house their crops.

Spring Hill definitely needs a way to help those who get trapped in addiction to these drugs. Narconon can help someone you care about overcome their addiction for good.
