Substance Abuse Costs Lives Every Year in New Hampshire
Substance abuse is the nation’s number one health-related problem and the effects can be seen in New Hampshire. 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 State
There are common denominators between drugs though each may have its own effects and side effects. All drugs are essentially poisons with the amount taken determining the effect.
A small amount of any drug will act as a stimulant (increases activity).
A larger amount of any drug will act as a sedative (suppressing activity).
A still larger amount poisons and can kill.
This is true of any drug and only the amount needed differs. Drugs act to block of sensations, unfortunately this includes desirable sensations as well as unwanted sensations. Though sometimes of short term value in handling pain, they also wipe out ability, alertness, and greatly confuse thinking processes. At an addictive level drugs serve as major sources of numbing mental and physical sensation, while at the same time increasing unwanted attitudes, emotions, sensations, and pains, when attempts are made to cease use.
Drug Rehab Information By City
Medical drugs are generally prescribed as short term solutions in the handling of pain.
Many of these medical drugs
will build up tolerance in the system requiring increased amounts for the same effect. Thus dependence sets in and one begins taking these at abusive and addictive levels before long.
This accounts for drugs like OxyContin being more and more used in illegal black markets to handle addiction
to them. Black market illegal use of drugs such as these is outstripping legitimate use and prescription.
Anti-depressants and anti-psychotics are much the same story with many school age children selling their prescriptions in the school yard.
Add the horrific side effects, some of which are life threatening, and what we see is an epidemic rise in the abuse
to prescription medications.
The subjects of relapse and disease are interesting ones when it comes to drug or alcohol addiction
Relapse is not a result of an incurable disease; in fact, addiction
is not an incurable disease at all as many would have you believe. Addiction
is a condition which is brought about as the result of abuse
drugs and alcohol.
There are mental, emotional, and physical factors that all contribute to bringing about the condition. Relapse is a result of one or more unhandled factors in the addiction recovery
process. The main categories of unhandled items causing relapse are Cravings (mental, emotional, and physical), unhandled guilt, and unhandled depression resulting from addiction.
Once these points are fully handled so is the problem of relapse.
At Narconon Arrowhead we do no refer to our participants as ‘patients’ but rather they are considered ‘students’. Using the word ‘patient’ tends to give an erroneous impression of illness and disease, which is not the main thrust of our program.
Certainly issues of health and nutrition need to corrected, especially in the withdrawal and detoxification
phases of the program. The term student is used as we are educating the individual into the use of the tools and abilities needed to sustain a continuous drug free productive life and to confront and resolve the three main factors behind relapse and continued use. Addiction
is not a disease of a lifetime.
It can and is being ended on a daily basis here a Narconon Arrowhead.
