Abuse and Addiction?
Where is the line between the two and what is the difference?
In terms of drug use, ‘abuse’ is the harmful or illegal use of non-medicinal use of drugs or alcohol.
If we define addiction
as a mental or physical dependence or drugs or alcohol we can see that the lines are often blurred.
Many people feel Drug Rehab
is only for those with an addiction. A comprehensive drug rehab
such as Narconon Arrowhead will also address those with an abuse
problem and in fact many people who feel they only have an abuse
problem are in fact in the deadly grasp of addiction
without realizing it. Drug abuse is always part of the addiction cycle. A quality rehab
program is able to evaluate the underlying causes of substance abuse
problems and help the abuser put workable solutions into place before their entire life crumbles around them. Narconon Arrowhead successfully helps the individual help themselves – no matter the stage of abuse or addiction.
Drug Rehab Information By State
This may sound obvious but the time for relapse prevention
is before the relapse, not after.
Too often relapse prevention
refers to the next relapse instead of just removing relapse as an issue to begin with.
Through 40 years of experience Narconon has discovered and found workable solution to the three causes of relapse
– Cravings, guilt, and depression.
Make no mistake these are the factors leading to relapse.
At Narconon Arrowhead we have a 76% success rate among our graduates. We give the program participants the skills, tools, and abilities to prevent relapse from even getting out of the starting gate.
In terms of drug rehab
help, help itself is one of the issues addressed.
Addicts often feel betrayed on the subject of help.
They feel they have failed to help themselves.
Help offered by their dealers and fellow drug friends have had the opposite effect and simply led toward further destruction of their lives and health.
Family, friends, and sometimes professionals have all had their attempts at helping the individual. The addict by the time he or she reaches drug rehab
often feels help is no longer possible. At Narconon Arrowhead one of the first things to be rehabilitated is the individual’s ability to reach for and accept help. True help exists in the individual gaining the skills and abilities necessary to help themselves, and then in helping their families and loved ones. Help is a two way street of giving and receiving.
Many programs consider withdrawal from the particular drug of addiction
to be detoxification.
The is only a partial answer and when substitute drugs are given to replace the substance of abuse
this is hardly detoxification
at all and is often simply trading one substance for another, as in the use of some anti-depressants, or drugs like methadone, etc. Detoxification
means to remove drugs, poisons and toxins from the body as fully as possible.
Research clearly indicates that these substances will store in the fatty tissues of the body for months and even years.
This in part accounts for drugged feeling and cravings appearing long after use has ceased. At Narconon Arrowhead we follow up withdrawal from use with the New Life Detoxification
Program. This is state of the art detoxification
embracing nutrition, exercise, and sauna routines to flush the stored drugs and toxins from the body. Many of the people completing this detoxification program report a complete handling and end of drug cravings, with rises in intelligence and ability demonstrated by actual test results.
Most addicts or alcoholics and confronted with multiple factors when it comes to effective drug treatments. One of the first drug treatments
is of course a safe cessation of drug use
and as gentle a withdrawal from actual use as possible.
Another one of the drug treatments
is effective detoxification
and removal of the actual drug and toxins from the body.
This alleviates and in many cases totally removes the cravings which can lead to relapse.
Some programs consider the addict ‘detoxed’ once withdrawal is accomplished.
At Narconon Arrowhead we deliver the New Life Detoxification
Program in addition to withdrawal services. This is a unique and state of the art program which actually removes stored drugs and toxins from the body. There is a definite difference between withdrawal and a full detoxification.
