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.

Alcohol Treatment Center and Addiction

Alcohol Treatment Center
Any effective alcohol treatment center should be well acquainted with the fact that alcoholism can only end in one of three ways – jail, death, or sobriety. There really are no other options, extenuating circumstances, or ‘this person is different’, etc. Anyone stating or asserting something different is simply uninformed or being dangerously reasonable with the condition. Death, jail, or sobriety, the choice is ultimately the alcoholics. A good alcohol treatment center will give the alcoholic the tools to life a happy alcohol free lifestyle when the choice is sobriety.

Addiction Centers and Addiction

Addiction Centers
If you or a loved one is in the full grip of the downward spiral of addiction, looking to addiction centers can offer information, help, and assistance for an otherwise hopeless situation. Many addiction centers have websites which can be a rich source of information regarding addiction and on specific drugs. Addiction centers have varying philosophies regarding addiction which should be obtainable from their websites as well. The main thing one is looking for when considering any addiction centers should be proven results over an extended period of time.

 

Methadone Addiction and Addiction

Methadone Addiction
As an opiate, regular use of methadone causes physical dependency - if you've been using it regularly (prescribed or not) once you stop you will experience a withdrawal. The physical changes due to the drug are similar to other opiates (like heroin). If you are a woman using methadone you may not have regular periods - but you are still able to conceive. Methadone is a long-acting opioid; it has an effect for up to 36 hours (if you are using methadone you will not withdraw for this period) A Personal story of methadone withdrawal: “I've been on both ends of withdrawals, heroin and methadone, every patient of methadone will always tell you the same, as I do; I can kick heroin anytime, but methadone that is something else. In 15 yrs of heroin addiction, I've kicked 3 times, 'cold-turkey'. In 10 years on methadone I've never kicked methadone.”

 

Addiction Drug and Addiction

Addiction Drug
Any drug could be an addiction drug if the individual finds himself unable to control the use of it. An addiction 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 individual’s attempt to handle mental or physical pain becomes dependant on the use of the drug, and the individual craves the relief that only ‘appears’ 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.
