To say that there is a general problem with the narcotic treatment facilities within America is akin to saying American’s life unhealthy lives: it is obvious, everyone realizes it, and very few people seem willing to make a change. Einstein once defined insanity as the repetition of an action with the expectation of differing results. On the majority, California drug rehab centers are performing the same basic treatments or offering the same 12-step programs that have proven to fail the vast majority of people joining them; and yet they offer these services expecting better results and increased success rates.
To say that most rehabilitation facilities fall into the dead horse category is not to say that “all” California drug rehab centers are performing the same failed actions. In fact, a small number of clinics have parted ways from the regimented 28-day programs, and instead have turned their focus to the needs and success of their patients. In many cases, the patients become statistics that are pushed through a system that does not care about them or their personal requirements for success.
While many narcotic programs focus on pushing religion or only spend enough time to physically remove the toxins from the addict, they fail to empower the abuser and teach them the self-reliant skills necessary for when they return to their lives. On the other hand, the Narconon drug and alcohol rehab program stands behind their clients from the initial intervention, through the entire rehabilitation process, and even after the patient has graduated the program.
This guidance not only empowers their graduates to a successful post-addiction life, but also reaffirms their real world relationships. These building blocks of success are not found in some procedural guidebook or in some self-help group. Instead, the Narconon program focuses on a general process of removing the client from their surroundings, detoxifying their system, help them build the mental capacity for restraint and rejection of mind altering substances in the future, and returning the client to the real world with periodic check-ups and evaluations.
At no point does the procedure explain how fast the patient will move through the system or place the patient in a situation where they must fend for themselves without the necessary mental skills. In the end, it is the large number of successful candidates who prove the quality and worth of the Narconon program.
