The Narconon Drug Rehabilitation Program
The Narconon Drug Rehabilitation Program is based on the researches of L. Ron Hubbard, American author, educator and humanitarian. In the late 1970s, he discovered that when drugs are broken down and eliminated by the body, they leave by-products of this process called metabolites. Drug metabolites are like fingerprints of the drug that was taken. Cocaine produces a cocaine metabolite, opiates produce an opiate metabolite, alcohol produces an alcohol metabolite and so on.
Since drugs dissolve better in oil than water, they have a natural affinity for fats. Therefore any drug residues or metabolites that are not eliminated have a natural attraction to fat cells and so tend to be stored in one’s fat. Mr. Hubbard discovered that these stored residuals can have an effect on one even years after drug use ceases.
As a result of these discoveries and after further research, Mr. Hubbard discovered what it would take to enable a person to recover from addiction, physically, morally, mentally and spiritually. These researches were refined into the Narconon program that exists today and that results in a 70% success rate.
The program starts with a withdrawal process that is quite tolerable for most people. Nutritional supplements are used to support the body’s detoxification process and begin to alleviate mental effects of addiction. Gentle physical techniques are used to calm spasms, aches and pains. Gradual reorientation processes are used to help a person realize that they are now in a safe, drug-free environment.
Mr. Hubbard’s discoveries into the storage of drug residuals resulted in the Narconon New Life Detoxification program which enables an addict to eliminate the stored toxins from his body. Under close supervision, an addict exercises to stimulate circulation, takes a specific regimen of supplements and minerals, and spends time in a dry sauna. The end result is a person who can think more clearly and whose physical cravings for drugs or alcohol have been alleviated.
This phase of treatment is followed by further actions that enable a person to improve their ability to communicate, that relieve a person’s emotional and moral burden resulting from misdeeds and bad experiences, and that improve a person’s ability to make decisions that improve survival. When a person is done with the Narconon program, they have replaced the loss and pain of alcohol or drug addiction with a productive enjoyable life.
