Everyday there are drugs flowing into America, which continues to be a battle for law enforcement to combat. Whether the drugs are smuggled in from Mexico, Canada or on cargo ships to the main ports in South Florida, the New England area or California, drugs find their way inside the American borders and into the hands of an array of individuals from your next door neighbor to the CEO of fortune 500 companies or your run-of-the-mill high school student. Anyone can be struggling with a drug addiction in their life because of the surplus throughout the country, which makes identifying you have an addiction to any of the number of substances accessible difficult at times. Addiction often goes unnoticed for a period of time, especially in this day and age due to the simplicity of obtaining drugs from either your neighborhood drug dealer or your primary care physician. It is as simple as going to the grocery store and buying ibuprofen.
Therefore if you find yourself or a loved one needing to use a substance everyday in order to get through the day, you know there is a problem and that it is imperative to find a solution to this problem known as drug addiction.

At Narconon their methods are completely drug free, which means there is no replacement drug used to trick the receptors in your brain into thinking you are still abusing your drug of choice, which is what many drug treatment centers do to make you feel a sense of sobriety. While these replacement drugs such as suboxone or methadone help with getting you off of the drug you were abusing, they do not help with overcoming your addiction. Unfortunately they actually just create a new addiction to the replacement drugs that are even more powerful and addictive than the initial drug you came in to be treated for. While you may not be using your drug of choice anymore, you still need a substance everyday just to get by, which is what Narconon wants you to stop doing. Many individuals who come to Narconon Freedom Center actually come in to be treated for their addiction to these replacement drugs because they are unable to stop using them without having extreme withdrawal symptoms. Thus, by stopping the use of street drugs and simply changing to a drug free life is actually more beneficial and easier to become sober in the long run than attempting to replace street drugs and then get sober.
