Working to Save Lives From Addiction
NARCONON DRUG REHABILITATION
In the fight to prevent the spread of drug abuse through education and assistance to those at risk, the battle is sometimes lost, but the war against drug addiction goes on. One of the weapons in that war has been the establishment of Narconon, a Church–sponsored drug rehabilitation programme that helps addicts to escape the dangerous cycle of drug abuse.
There are Narconon centres located throughout Europe, in the UK, and in numerous locations in the US, where they have delivered help for more than 50 years to those suffering from addiction.
Unlike many other rehabilitation programmes, Narconon’s drug-free approach focuses on an intense detoxification process, breaking the addiction cycle.
According to original research by L. Ron Hubbard—and supported by medical professionals from the Narconon International Science Advisory Board—this detoxification can often relieve cravings that addicts feel, an essential part of reversing their dependency and paving the way for a return to productive lives.
In addition to detoxification, the Narconon programme utilises Mr. Hubbard’s discoveries and procedures that help an individual to extrovert their attention onto the world around them, increasing their alertness, awareness and survival potential. The programme further involves life skills courses imparting practical tools a former addict can use to help to overcome problems in everyday living and stay drug–free.
“THE RESULTS THAT YOU OBTAIN ARE IMPRESSIVE. IT HAS BEEN VERY POSITIVE AND INSTRUCTIVE TO HAVE MET SOME OF NARCONON’S EARLIER CLIENTS, PEOPLE WHO ARE FREE FROM THEIR ADDICTION AND HAVE BEEN ABLE TO COME BACK TO NORMAL WORK AND FAMILY LIFE.”
