Cocaine is a stimulant that affects the brain directly; it has been around for thousands of years. It first started with people chewing the coco leaves to get affects from them. Now you can find cocaine in a powdery substance and it is usually diluted by street dealers, with corn starch and other substances. It is very dangerous to use cocaine or any other drug for that matter.
When you come to Narconon you will go through the detox process, we do not do the typical medical detox, which is where they give you a substitute drug for whatever you are on. When that is done there is a risk of developing an addiction to whatever they are giving you, whether it is methadone, or Suboxone, or any other medications they may use. Here at Narconon we do not do that, we do a complete non medical detox where you will sit in a dry heat sauna every day, and you are put on a daily vitamin regimen, and you also do some light aerobics to help sweat the toxins out.
Once you are done with that part of the cocaine rehab program, you go into the life skills portion of the program. In this part we offer several courses that will not only help you with addiction but they also help you with struggles in everyday life. Our courses will teach you how to confront the underlying problem that may have caused you to turn to drugs or alcohol in the first place. We also teach you how to deal with your problems without drugs or alcohol; this will prevent a relapse in the future.
We also have a course that will help you identify a person’s personalities and know if you should have relationships with them or not, this also helps with personal relationships with family and loved ones. In another part of course, you will learn how to face any guilt that you may be holding on to for any people that you may have wronged while you were on drugs, and we will help you make amends with them. There are several more courses, but once you have completed all of the courses and you are ready to go home, you have to go through a final review process, this is to make sure that you have learned everything you need to know to stay clean, and that you have received all of the tools you need, and you know how to apply them.
Once you have passed the review part of the program you will make a discharge plan, when you do this you will make a list of problems that you may have waiting on you when you get home, and you will write down the actions that you will take to fix these problems. Also you will make a list of goals that you want to achieve in your life, with work, family, or relationships. Then you will also write how you are going to achieve these goals, what actions you will take, and what tools you will use. Then once all of this is done, you will go home. Once you are home you will be contacted frequently by someone from Narconon to be sure that you are doing ok, and if you have any problems with anything we will help you deal with them as best as we can. We also want to make sure that you are reaching the goals that you set for yourself. Our goal is not only to get you off of drugs but to also make sure that you are getting to where you want to be in life. So if you have any troubles along the way we will help you as much as we can.
Narconon is a great facility and we have been helping people for over forty years and we have several facilities all over the world. The Narconon program started in prison and it was founded by a man named William Benitez. He was in prison in Arizona; he read an L. Ron Hubbard book which gave him the ground work for the program. When he got out of prison he started the first out of prison facility in Los Angeles. Now we are a strong and successful program. We have an over 70% success rate of those who graduate; we are not a typical 12 step program. As I have told you above we have several courses and different opportunities for everyone that comes to our facility.
