Heroin addiction is always destructive and often deadly. No one disputes that rehabilitation from heroin is desirable. But how is that achieved?
12-Step programs are increasingly recognized as having low success rates, with frequent relapses to addiction. A newer approach is to substitute a different drug such as Suboxone, Methadone or Naltrexone. Even when such drugs stop the heroin craving, they leave the addict still trapped, addicted to a different drug, such as Methadone. Indeed, the history of the development of heroin shows that it followed this exact pattern, with morphine being a substitute for opium and heroin, a substitute for morphine. But addiction is still addiction. The true goal of rehabilitation should be freedom from drug or alcohol abuse, not a transferring of one addiction to another.
That is why the Narconon drug treatment program is vital for those addicted to heroin. It provides a path which thousands have successfully walked to escape the trap of heroin addiction and live drug-free lives.
Narconon Freedom Center Addresses Heroin Addiction
Narconon Freedom Center provides a unique, wholly drug-free address to heroin addiction. It helps the addict through withdrawal, using nutrition and special exercises to reduce the physical and emotional discomfort which typically accompanies this step.
The Narconon New Life Detoxification step follows. This is carefully developed low-heat sauna regimen which utilizes nutrition and exercise to help the addict's body cleanse out stored drug residuals from years of abuse. Narconon clients who have completed this program often tell how it freed their ability to think clearly, removing a "drug haze" which they often had not even realized existed. Similarly they commonly mention how they have increased energy and ability to do things. And, most importantly, they often say that this step reduced or eliminated their cravings to return to drug or alcohol use.
The Program then continues with a series of courses to provide the individual with knowledge and tools to enabling the person to regain control of their life and move forward to the achievement of their own goals and a drug-free life.
Natural approaches to heroin addiction treatment stress the importance of not using drugs to treat drug abuse. Instead of substituting methadone for heroin and slowly weaning the user off, holistic addiction treatment programs manage withdrawal symptoms through nutritional and vitamin supplements and enhance the body’s natural healing capabilities during detoxification. This approach also considers participants as students rather than patients and uses social education as the cornerstone of its philosophy.
