Prescription Drug Rehab
Bringing a Loved One Back from Prescription Drug Addiction
Prescription drug abuse is an epidemic that is sweeping across the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Central and South America and other countries. What a person starting to abuse drugs like Xanax, Valium, oxycodone, hydrocodone, morphine or other drug does know is how addictive these drugs are. A person basing these drugs doesn't usually realize that these drugs are meant to be used only for weeks or at most, months. A person abusing oxycodone (OxyContin) or hydrocodone (Vicodin or Lortab) at higher-than-recommended doses may find that he becomes addicted after just a very brief period.
The cravings very quickly take over and drive the user to find more drugs and abuse them. Some people who have been addicted to these drugs describe the cravings as making them "crazy" until they were satisfied. In other words, the cravings are so compelling that no other consideration in life takes precedence over the need for drugs. This is how addicts can neglect families, abandon careers and lose their health and even their freedom. In tens of thousands of cases each year, they even lose their lives.
When prescription drug addiction exists, families need to know they have a solution to help their loved one. But in too many cases, completion of a rehab program leads to failure and perhaps a second or third trip to rehab. The drug rehab program at Narconon Arrowhead has an almost fifty-year history of enabling the addicted find lasting sobriety.
Finding True Recovery
Real recovery takes longer than 28 days – even according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Their report Principles of Drug Addiction Treatment recommends a program of 90 days or longer for one's best guarantee of success. At Narconon Arrowhead, the program's thorough approach to overcoming addiction is completed by most people in three to five months. Some people need longer before they are ready to resume a normal life and for them, there is no additional charge. A person graduates from the Narconon Arrowhead rehab program when he (or she) has recovered from the damage done by addiction, found relief from the guilt and depression that normally accompany addiction, and when he has learned sober living skills.
Detoxification Helps Reduce Cravings
One early phase of the Narconon drug recovery program also provides relief from the incessant cravings that drive addiction. This is a sauna-based detox that most people say reduces or even eliminates cravings. After this detoxification action, it is common for people to talk about increased energy, clearer thinking and improved mood as well. This is a big step forward toward relieving the destruction of one's past addiction.
