Drug and alcohol addiction is the root cause to many other societal problems and it costs our country up to $500 billion each year, in addition to the thousands of lives lost, broken homes and drug-related crime.
Most addiction treatment centers have a limited success rate, where the majority of the clients relapse. This is not the case with Narconon Arrowhead. In fact, approximately 70% of the graduates of our drug and alcohol rehab remain drug free.

Drug Rehab Information By City
The first challenge of rehab
centers in addiction treatment
is to help the individual with their drug and alcohol cravings.
Cravings are strong, uncontrollable, urges that drive the addict to use over and over.
Some withdrawal symptoms and cravings are caused by poor nutrition and depletion of vitamin stores in the body that the drugs are sucking out of the body.
Depletion of nutrition and vitamins can cause the person to be tired and moody and can also cause shakiness and pain.
The drugs accumulating in the body stress the various systems in the body including nerve systems. At this point more drugs are used in an attempt to alleviate feelings and emotions that the drugs themselves are creating. This is why treating drug addiction
with more drugs only makes the problem worse and is now being rejected as a workable therapy by many rehab
Any drug could be an addiction
drug if the individual finds himself unable to control the use of it.
drug causes physical addiction, mental addiction, or both.
Drugs are essentially poisons.
The amount taken determines the effect.
A small amount of a given drug acts as a stimulant, a larger dose will act as a depressant, and enough of any particular drug can kill one dead. An addiction drug
becomes addictive when the individualís attempt to handle mental or physical pain becomes dependant on the use of the drug, and the individual craves the relief that only Ďappearsí to come from the use of the substance. The substances in the long run will be found to escalate the discomfort and create new emotional and physical side effects in many cases, thus not only are dosages increased but one often finds himself using new drugs to try and counteract these new side effects. Once an individual is restored to an ability to feel better (mentally and physically) without the use of the drug, then one no longer requires the drug and rehabilitation
can progress to an address of the underlying causes.
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
Ė 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.
