The goal of drug detox is to rid the body of toxins accumulated by drug use. The first step of drug detox is drug withdrawal. Drug withdrawal is "the act or process of ceasing to use an addictive drug." Once an individual has discontinued using drugs physical and behavioral withdrawal symptoms may follow. The character and severity of the withdrawal symptoms vary greatly depending on the particular drug and amount administered daily. Drug detox is a process that helps diminish the uncomfortable symptoms of drug withdrawal.
Drug detox is performed in many different ways depending on where you decide to receive treatment. Most drug detox centers simply provide treatment to avoid physical withdrawal to alcohol & other drugs. Our purpose is not only to provide the individual with counseling during detox but to help with the physical withdrawal and the psychological root cause of the individuals addiction problem, so as to decrease the chances of relapse.
At Narconon, after one has completed withdrawal we begin the next step in our overall drug detox process. This drug detox process is known as the New Life Detoxification Procedure. Researched and developed by author & humanitarian L. Ron Hubbarb. Narconon's New Life Detoxification Procedure utilizes sweating in a dry sauna, in combination with plenty of fluids and nutritional supplementation, to eliminate drug residuals from the body.
Our drug detox method is designed to cover all the parts of an individual's drug detoxification. The removal of drug residuals is a key point in drug detox. Without this process drug residues can remain in ones body and cause cravings for years after drug use has ceased. A vital step in a successful drug detox as well as drug rehabilitation is flushing out these accumulated toxic residues so that the individual no longer experiences unwanted adverse effects from the drugs they have taken. The Narconon New Life Detoxification program produces spectacular results and is applicable to all types of drugs including: cocaine, heroin, Valium, PCP, amphetamines (crank, crystal, meth, ecstasy, etc.) alcohol and medicinal drugs such as narcotic painkillers, tranquilizers and sleeping pills. Narconon's success rate of 76% is higher than other drug detox and rehabilitation centers because we developed a complete drug detox program that works for the entire individual: mind, body, and soul.
