Drug Rehab for South Africa

Johannesburg South Africa

Addiction is a trap - pure and simple. The addict is caught up in a whirlwind of hopelessness and despair. The cravings that drive him create such a different personality than was present before he began using drugs or alcohol. He doesn’t seem to be the same person to his family and friends. He lies, steals and manipulates others in his attempts to satisfy the urges he has for that next pill or drink. The only solution for this horror of addiction is to find an effective drug rehab that can provide lasting sobriety. The Narconon program may just be the solution.

Township in South Africa

In South Africa, about fifteen percent of the population has a drug problem. The South African Police Service has stated that sixty percent of the crimes in the country were related to substance abuse. Additionally, sixty-five percent of the murders in South Africa were associated with alcohol abuse. Drug arrests increase and continue to climb. It is vital that South Africa has a drug rehab treatment center that helps addicts out of this trap of drugs and crime.

Preparing a Recovering Addict for a Drug-free Life

After withdrawal and a thorough drug detoxification, the recovering addict must learn how to restore and rebuild his life. Fixing the damaged areas of an addicted lifestyle is key to full recovery. Knowing how to live a drug-free life is vital so that the person will not be tempted to return to drug or alcohol abuse.

Narconon Life Skills Courses teach an addict how to handle areas of stress, how to communicate more effectively and how to rebuild his integrity and honesty. One of the courses is the Objectives Course. Here the student does a series of practical exercises that show him how to communicate well. There are also exercises which restore his or her clear perceptions. He can much more easily maintain his sober life when he has the tools to help him do so.

The Withdrawal and Detoxification of the Narconon Program

Drug-free withdrawal is made more tolerable in the Narconon program by using generous doses of nutritional supplements. The body can withstand the discomforts of withdrawal when essential nutrients lost in an addicted lifestyle are replenished. Unique relaxation and reorientation processes are used to ease the aches and pains and help the person better relate to his environment.

Once withdrawal is complete, the person begins the Narconon New Life Detoxification. Drug residues lodged in the fatty tissues of the body must be eliminated. These residual drugs, which remain for years after someone has come off drugs, cause foggy and muddled thinking and have been known to be involved in triggering drug cravings. On this detox, the residual drugs are flushed from the system by a regimen of moderate exercise, vitamin and mineral supplements and time in a low-heat sauna. Once these residual poisons are gone, the person feels brighter and refreshed. Many say that their drug cravings have fully disappeared.

South Africa’s Drug Situation Needs a Solution

South Africa is haunted by illegal drugs and trafficking. Recently, a drug bust uncovered a multimillion-rand drug manufacturing operation in an upscale neighborhood in Johannesburg. Seized were drug manufacturing equipment and powders and chemicals used to make the drugs. The people arrested were considered by neighbors to be polite and decent people, but here they were engaged in an activity that trapped others in deadly drug habits. To make matters worse, there were small children in the home. There is no question that an effective drug rehab for South Africa is a necessity.
