How Drug Rehab Helps Your Whole Community

small town community

What would your community be like if there was no addiction? According to the National Drug Information Center, the US as a whole would save $193 billion dollars on all the damage created by drug abuse and addiction. That includes all law enforcement, incarceration, judicial system, healthcare and welfare costs.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, there would be approximately 22 million families who would be spared the heartbreak of one of their members being an alcoholic or a drug addict.

In your own neighborhood, there would be fewer crimes. Your own health insurance costs would reduce. There would be fewer traffic accidents from people driving while drunk or intoxicated with drugs. There would be more than 10,000 people who would not be killed in alcohol-related accidents. That means thousands more heartbreaks eliminated due to loss of a loved one.

If you’ve ever been affected by identity theft, for example, you may have been touched by drug crimes. While there are others who commit identity theft, it is a crime particularly preferred by methamphetamine addicts. And since prescription drug abuse aided by online pharmacies means that anyone who wants to can obtain drugs to abuse, eliminating addiction would remove this type of crime from your community as well.

Would effective addiction treatment drug rehab make a change in your community?

It surely would.

The Problem with Addiction Treatment Drug Rehab

If you ask most drug rehabilitation programs about their success rates, you will find that most of them have success in 16 to 20% of cases. If you hear a higher number, be sure to ask that center how they judge a success. In some cases, it’s considered successful for a person to complete the program. The only measure that really counts is that someone remains sober after they complete the recovery program and go home.

Revolutionary Sauna Detoxification Program Increases the Effectiveness of Narconon Program

The Narconon program starts with a tolerable, humane withdrawal process that uses nutritional supplements and gentle assists and exercises to help each person find relief from many of the symptoms of withdrawal. This is followed by a sauna-based program that uses more nutritional supplements and moderate exercise to activate the body’s cleansing power.

The Narconon New Life Detoxification helps the body find the places in the fatty tissues that drug residues have been stored and flush them out. Since drugs are naturally attracted to fats, they tend to lodge in the body’s fat. They can remain there for years, being involved in the triggering of cravings, even years after drug abuse stops. This explains why some people may suddenly relapse even after years of sobriety.

After this flushing process is complete, those in recovery say they have brighter outlooks and lower cravings. Some people state that they have more energy as well.

This improvement makes it much easier to approach the life skills portion of the Narconon recovery program. When this is complete, each person has been guided through the process of recovering his or her own self-esteem and personal integrity. They have learned how to handle people who might present a threat to their sobriety. These and other life skills they learn before they go home are necessary for them to know how to navigate a sober life in the future.
