I Tried Other Programs But Narconon Arrowhead Helped Me Get Clean

womanThere may be few things more disheartening for a substance abuser than participating in rehabilitation treatment only to relapse into drug use shortly thereafter.  In the hope that something can be done to effectively resolve their problems with drugs, the substance abuser may pursue other treatment programs, thinking that perhaps they can find the right one that will work for them.  With the alternatives being lengthy prison stays or drug-related death, enrolling in treatment program after treatment program may seem like the only promising option the individual has.  But honestly, why is it that rehabilitation treatment can fail in truly rehabilitating an individual?

Patient’s Search For Sobriety Ends With Narconon Arrowhead

Narconon ArrowheadMany former substance abusers will admit that one of the most difficult parts of handling their problems with addiction was admitting that they had a problem and needed help.  Considering that some substance abusers have passed up sincere offers of help from family members and friends, sometimes for months or even years, before finally admitting they had a problem and needed help, it follows that help should be readily be available for those who need it.  More importantly, help should have the desired result – the individual’s restoration to a healthy, productive life.  Unfortunately, it often happens that the help many individuals receive in the form of rehabilitation treatment fails to effectively help them overcome the physical and mental causes and effects of substance abuse and they continue to suffer on.  Over time, if the individual has participated in several treatment programs without lasting results, they may come to the conclusion that they are beyond help and therefore beyond hope.  Despite this discouraging setback, there are those that continue to search for a way out.

Narconon Arrowhead Graduate Thanks Staff After 5 Months Clean

narconon arrowheadFor an individual who is trapped in the stranglehold that is drug addiction, any week, day or even hour that is spent sober seems like an eternity.  Unfortunately, unwelcome and overwhelming drug cravings can send them reeling back into drug use, and sobriety becomes a seemingly impossible dream that they are certain they can never really hold on to.  They may dream of or pray for sobriety, but are unable to see exactly how they can achieve it.  Sober individuals may think it simple to just stop using drugs and enroll in rehabilitation treatment, but the addict himself cannot see this through the fog of substance abuse that clouds their every thought and action.

Former Addict Clean Since 2003 After Enrolling in Narconon Arrowhead

peopleWhen one thinks of a contributing member of society, many different qualities may be called to mind.  Some of the key components of this individual may include a sound education, honesty, trustworthiness, dedication, integrity and much more.  A contributing member of society works hard in their career, makes an effort to improve their society and those around them, is thriving, happy, healthy and is an asset to his community.  Professions and community involvement may vary, but no matter what qualities one thinks of in such an individual, “former addict” is unlikely to make the list.

Former Narconon Arrowhead Patient Says Program is Best Available

Narconon Arrowhead rehabThe word “rehabilitation” means the condition wherein an individual has been restored to the ability to live a healthy, productive life.  Any drug and alcohol rehabilitation treatment facility should have this exact goal in mind when designing and delivering their program to various patients.  It is true that there are many different facilities that have varying degrees of success in rehabilitating individuals for healthy, productive lives, and different elements of successful programs can be combined to increase an individual’s chance of success.  However, few programs contain all of the elements that routinely result in patient success time and time again.

A drug addict who is caught up in the lifestyle of drug abuse may feel that they are living the high life – surrounded by friends, good times and money.  However, these “friends” are often individuals that would turn their back on you in a second if it allowed them access to more drugs, and the “good times” are the false highs of drug chemicals, often followed by agonizing lows.  As for the money – it disappears into a bottomless chasm as more and more drugs are purchased.  Any individual living in the downward spiral of drug addiction discovers that their world is quickly caving in on them, and only if they are very lucky in finding effective rehabilitation treatment can they escape.

Before Narconon Arrowhead I Had Lost Hope For My Future
