Narconon students acquire skills to take control of their lives, make amends for wrong doings they had committed in the past, due to substance abuse. Students are given the life skills to enable them to confront their problems in the future without returning to drugs and or alcohol as an escape. This is in direct contrast to numerous conventional drug treatment programs, which tell addicts that they are powerless over their addiction and life’s. All Narconon students are rehabilitated from the ground up. When our graduates return home, their families can barely believe they’re the same person that was a mere shell just a few months earlier. During their enrollment in our program, students are completely detoxified from drugs and toxins in order to renew physical health and eliminate physical cravings. Consecutive, the student is rehabilitated mentally, socially and spiritually. Addressing and treating each aspect of what it is to be a human gives our clients the best chance available anywhere at having a drug free life.

Narconon knows when an individual regularly uses heroin, tolerance develops. This means the abuser must use additional heroin to experience the same intensity or effect. As increased doses are used over time, physical dependence and addiction develop. With physical dependence, the body will adapt to the presence of the drug and withdrawal symptoms may occur if use is reduced or stopped. Narconon knows a regular user may experience withdrawals as early as a few hours after the last administration. Withdrawals may cause one to experience drug craving, restlessness, muscle and bone pain, insomnia, diarrhea and vomiting, cold flashes with goose bumps, kicking movements, and other symptoms. Major withdrawal symptoms start between 48 and 72 hours after the last dose and subside after about a week. Onset withdrawal by heavily dependent users who are in poor health can be occasionally fatal; although heroin withdrawal is considered much less dangerous than alcohol or barbiturate withdrawal it is still dangerous.

Addiction from the Narconon rehab programs perspective is not viewed as a “disease” to be treated with substitute or alternative drugs. This perspective seems to be gaining support. Some authors have expressed concern regarding the current trend to resort to drugs to address daily life problems or disorders that may otherwise be handled through behavioral approaches. These authors decry this tendency as “hedonistic pharmacology” which may contribute to recreational as well as the abuse of drugs1,2.
