In an over-medicated society, the Narconon® drug
rehabilitation program stands out as a leader in drug-free treatment
for addictions with long-term results and permanent sobriety.
Los Angeles, CA - It doesn’t take much searching on the Internet to find stories
about the devastation being caused by prescription drug addiction today. According
to the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) there are about 6.2
million Americans who are current non-medical users of prescription drugs, many of
whom are addicted.
The above statistic shows that despite any medicinal value, many drugs today have a
high potential for abuse and all of them have additional side effects. So, when
addicts turn to a treatment center for help, prescribing more drugs to them can be
detrimental to their recovery. This is one of the reasons why the Narconon program is drug-free.
The program was founded in 1966 by a former heroin addict named William Benitez and
has not used any type of drug replacement therapy since its inception. Based on
research and developments by the late American author and humanitarian L. Ron
Hubbard, Narconon incorporates other therapies to help ease withdrawal symptoms,
removed stored toxins from the body and rebuild natural health.
Narconon has a recovery rate of more than 70% that has been well documented and its
results have fueled worldwide growth to now include over 140 groups and centers in
more than 40 countries.
“We have found that more and more people are searching for alternative programs that
do not subscribe to the disease concept or give more drugs to addicts,” comments
Narconon International Executive Sue Birkenshaw, “An increasing number of
individuals and family members want to be able to put addictive substances behind
them forever, and that is what Narconon offers.”
With National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month just around the corner in
September, this message resonates with many people who have regained control over
their lives through Narconon after trying programs that used various types of
replacement drugs and pharmacotherapies. Drug-free programs are becoming more
mainstream in the light of the prescription drug epidemic our country faces. To
