Drug Treatment


There are many different types of drug treatment methods. Several involve substituting one drug for another, such as methadone treatment. Other drug treatment methods lead individuals to believe that they are powerless over their addiction and resign themselves to a life of continual recovery. These methods differ from the way Narconon conducts drug treatment. We at Narconon do not believe that drug addicted individuals are powerless and suffer from a disease. At Narconon the individual takes responsibility for their actions and has the ability to recover from their drug addiction.

Methadone Maintenance Drug Treatment - Methadone Maintenance is the dispensing of methadone in the treatment of an individual for dependence on heroin or other morphine like drugs. Methadone acts in the brain to decrease the feeling of pain and to reduce emotional response to pain. In adequate doses Methadone, can usually suppress a heroin addict's craving and withdrawal for 24 hours. Patients are as physically dependent on methadone as they were to heroin or other opiates, such as OxyContin or Vicodin. Individuals who choose to use Methadone Maintenance as a form of drug treatment may find that they are using Methadone for many years after they start their "treatment" process. Additionally, Methadone is known to be more difficult to withdrawal from than heroin. Methadone maintenance involves more time, pain, and expense than heroin withdrawal.

12 Step Drug Treatment -

  1. We admit we are powerless over our dependencies and that our lives have become unmanageable.
  2. We come to believe that God can restore us to sanity.
  3. We make a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God.
  4. We make a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
  5. We admit to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
  6. We are entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. We humbly ask God to remove our shortcomings.
  8. We make a list of all persons we have harmed and become willing to make amends to them all.
  9. We make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. We continue to take personal inventory and when we are wrong promptly admit it.
  11. We seek through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, as revealed through the person of Jesus Christ, praying only for knowledge of his will for us and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as a result of these steps, which is the revelation of Jesus Christ, we try to carry this message to others and to practice these Biblical principles in all our affairs.

Using the 12 Step drug treatment method individuals continue to attend meetings after leaving drug treatment and believe that they will never "recover" from their drug addiction. This drug treatment program may leave many feeling powerless and hopeless of ever ending their battle with drug addiction. Although the 12 step programs may work for some, its success rate leaves many individuals still struggling with drug addiction.
