The life of addiction, although filled with so-called highs, is far from happy. In all honesty, it is misery. There is the constant search for more drugs and money, conflict with loved ones, and that is only the beginning. Many addicts wind up homeless or incarcerated due to their addictions. The holiday season has probably exemplified all of that for addicts. Most people with addictions, as well as their loved ones are miserable. Ending the madness requires a conscious decision to make changes. Can a happy, drug-free life be possible? You bet it can, with the help of Narconon. It only takes a few moment of coherent and logical reasoning to decide that living without drugs would be much better than living with addiction.
Most addicts do have these rare moments where they know; deep down, that they need to stop using. The problem is that they continue to let the drugs do the thinking for them. If, during one of those lucid moments, they instead picked up a phone and got straight answers to the tough questions, they would be on their way to a happy life. Most often, it is through the encouragement of family and/or friends that finally drive the addict to consider using a rehab center. Interventions are often done if the addict does not make the decision to seek recovery on their own. Whatever initiates it, choosing treatment is the first step in achieving a happy, drug-free life in 2012.
The upcoming year can be the best ever for addicts. They can find out what it is like to feel true happiness and true joy. They can make their own decisions instead of blindly following the impulses caused by the drugs. They can actually be in control of their lives, perhaps for the first time in a very long time. The power to do this is within the addict; they just often don’t realize or believe it. Narconon helps addicts to see that they do indeed have the power to not only quit using drugs, but to stay drug-free. The program has helped thousands of people to overcome addiction and live without drugs. The proof is by seeing how former graduates express their joy and gratitude for finally being free from drugs.
The Narconon program is a residential, long term rehab center that utilizes comprehensive and natural methods to help addicts rid their body and mind from drugs, and the effects caused as a result of using. The method used by Narconon are based on the research don by humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard in the field of substance abuse recovery, and provides not only detoxification, but courses designed to improve life skills. Students learn what their triggers for drug use are, and how to use different strategies to overcome those triggers. They also learn how to better communicate. Each step of the program has been carefully designed to build on the last, including the first life skill of “Learning how to learn”, which helps students to retain information better. Most students stay at the center from 3-6 months, but some do stay longer. No one leaves until they feel they are ready to face the world on their own, without drugs.
After the holiday season, which is a time that could have been even more stressful than usual, it is the perfect time to decide on recovery. A brand new year, and a brand new you are on the horizon as soon as that decision is made. There is no wrong time to go to a rehab center, but if there is a great time; this is it. Look forward to a new year and a new you. Learn to actually feel happiness again in 2012. Learn how to create and maintain healthy relationships and values. The secular program at Narconon can help you do just that.
