Alcoholic and Addiction

Alcoholic
The term ‘Alcoholic’ is simply the name given to someone addicted to alcohol. Addiction is a condition characterized by repeated and compulsive seeking and use of drugs, alcohol, or other substances despite adverse social, mental, and physical consequences. All the various formulas regarding how many drinks, how often, are meaningless when reviewed against the above definition. The compulsive seeking and use could be by the minute, hour, day, etc. The key is compulsive seeking and use, despite what it does to self, family, or career. It is not that the alcoholic doesn’t care; it is that the use has become compulsive and the cravings, guilt, and depression keep him or her drinking.

Drug Effects and Addiction

Drug Effects
Each drug of course can and does create its own effects. With all the substances available today the list of effects can be staggering. There are common denominators to drug abuse and addiction however. Those who start down the path of addiction begin to accumulate so much damage to their physical and mental selves and their lives that the quality of their lives in general deteriorates. If drug or alcohol abuse continues unchecked, eventually the person is faced with so many unpleasant circumstances that each sober moment is filled with despair and misery. All this person now wants to do is escape these feelings by medicating them away. This is the downward spiral of addiction.For most addicts, there are only three possible outcomes: sobriety, prison or death.

 

Rehab Program and Addiction

Rehab Program
A rehab program should be a series of steps done in sequence to gradually increase a person’s mental, emotional, and physical health. This involves a full and complete handling of cravings, guilt and depression that accompany any addiction and addictive lifestyle. These are also the major sources of continued drug use and relapse. The program would also include an increase in skills and abilities that will be needed for the restoring of relationships, trust, finances, career, hopes and dreams. All this is not only possible but is being achieved on a daily basis at Narconon Arrowhead. Our 76% success rate when compared to 16-20% for more traditional short term programs speaks for itself.

 

After Drug Rehab and Addiction

After Drug Rehab
Ideally, what should follow after drug rehab treatment? The cravings to use drugs or alcohol should be fully handled and not constantly recurring. The Narconon New Life Detoxification Program removes the drugs and toxins that have been lodged in the body for years with most participants reporting an end to cravings at this point. The guilt and depression that goes hand and hand with addiction should be addressed and relieved, so as not to constantly haunt the individual. The Narconon life skills segment of the program has several phases that address exactly these points bringing much needed relief and going a long way towards restoring normal relationships and even improving on them. When the factors causing addiction are fully addressed the door is opened to a drug free and productive life.
