Getting Drug Rehab Help

Addiction harms everyone involved—the addict, spouse, children, parents and extended family. The harm even extends to employers, businesses, and community. When a person can be brought back from the destruction and degradation of addiction, everyone can find relief.

But making a full recovery after the intensity of addiction to prescription drugs, illicit drugs or alcohol is a very difficult job. When people enter treatment programs, the majority of them have been to rehab before. About ten percent have been to five or more rehabs before. Very often, the addicted person himself (or herself) resists or derails every effort to assist him in recovering. This resistance just adds to the heartbreak the family suffers and extends the danger for the person who is at risk of accident, overdose or arrest every day.

Help is Still Possible

No matter how many times a person has been to rehab, it is still possible that he can find just the right program that will make sobriety last. For more than fifty years, the Narconon program has been offering its assistance to many people who had been through other rehab programs without success. And many who had never been to rehab before found that they would never need another rehab program after Narconon. The Narconon program is long-term and residential which means that a person can focus fully on recovery and develop the skills needded to live a sober life.

For a person who may not be looking for recovery at the moment, it is often necessary to dig a little to get them to remember life the way it used to be, before the need for drugs or alcohol began to control their actions and decisions. Some people who have been through rehab multiple times may feel that they should no longer burden their families. You may have to convince them that you have a new type of program that has an excellent history of enabling people to recover. The innovative steps of the Narconon program, unique to this rehab network, have convinced many people that there actually is hope this time.
