One of the first projects I did when I moved to New Mexico was the Centerforaddiction.org which was a directory of drug rehab & treatment facilities in the United States. I built that site because a former girlfriend struggled with cocaine addiction. In building that site I have taken a look at hundreds of drug treatment facilities’ programs and websites.
The Narconon Stone Hawk program is one of the most successful in the country, boasting of a 76% success rate. This undoubtedly due to their approach to drug rehab which emphasizes the physical aspects of addiction and the mental aspects of addictions. Many drug treatment programs don’t fully treat the underlying physical component addiction.
The cornerstone of mental well being is physical well being. The Narconon Stone Hawk program treats both the physical and the mental components of addiction. For the physical component of addiction they detoxify the body using a rigorous detoxification. The detoxification program includes saunas designed to help eliminate the residual toxins built up into the fatty tissues of the body. They then combine that with the power of proper diet, exercise, and supplementation to prepare the body and the mind for developing a set of life skills needed to free one’s self from drug addiction.
Freeing the body from it’s physical dependency is just the first step in preparing a student to free himself from drug addiction. Breaking the cycle of addiction requires developing the coping skills needed to deal with life’s difficulties and problems. Addicts are using alcohol and drugs as a coping mechanism. Their drug rehab program teaches and helps develop their life skills so that addicts can overcome the mental urge to use drugs.
The Narconon Stone Hawk program also offers an after care program that is uniquely designed for each student. This part of the program is undoubtedly one of the essential elements in their success as drug rehab program. Let’s face relapses rarely occur in rehab but they occur when students are just beginning to use their life skills to cope. This custom designed follow up and treatment helps support the student as they remain drug free.
