Real Success Stories
"I came to Narconon Arrowhead with zero hope. I have been on crack for 15 years of my life and for the last 10 have been unsuccessful at trying to stop using. I had been through many different programs and had given up. My wife found this place and I decided that I would try it. I put 100% into this program and to my surprise I was given back 200%. I have realized that the drugs were only the end symptom to an already destructive lifestyle. I could not understand how when life would be going so well I could always seem to mess things up. Now I see that it's all about continual maintenance. I can now recognize these various conditions that I am in and take the proper steps to get out of, or maintain that condition. It's not about the drugs, by knowing this, that I'm not an addict, I can finally begin a new and prosperous life." - K.S.

SHOCKING REPORT!  

Below are excerpts from a recent CASA (National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse) report.

The facts speak for themselves.

"NEW CASA REPORT FINDS HALF OF COLLEGE STUDENTS BINGE DRINK, ABUSE PRESCRIPTION AND ILLEGAL DRUGS

"NEARLY ONE IN FOUR MEET MEDICAL CRITERIA FOR ALCOHOL, DRUG ABUSE AND DEPENDENCE

"WASHINGTON, D. C., March 15, 2007 – Forty-nine percent (3.8 million) of full time college students binge drink and/or abuse prescription and illegal drugs, according to Wasting the Best and the Brightest: Substance Abuse at America’s Colleges and Universities, a new report by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University.

“It’s time to get the ‘high’ out of higher education,” said Joseph A. Califano, Jr., CASA’s chairman and president and former U.S. Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare.

“Under any circumstances acceptance by administrators, trustees, professors and parents of this college culture of alcohol and other drug abuse is inexcusable.

"In this world of fierce global competition, we are losing thousands of our nation’s best and brightest to alcohol and drugs, and in the process robbing them and our nation of their promising futures.”

"Between 1993 and 2005 the proportion of students abusing prescription drugs increased:

343 percent for opioids like Percocet, Vicodin and OxyContin
93 percent for abuse of stimulants like Ritalin and Adderall
450 percent for tranquilizers like Xanax and Valium
225 percent for sedatives like Nembutal and Seconal

Between 1993 and 2005, the proportion of students who:

Use marijuana daily more than doubled to 310,000
Use cocaine, heroin, and other illegal drugs (except marijuana) is up 52 percent to 636,000."

In this age where popping a pill is seen as the solution to so many problems, both physical and mental, what will it take to get college students to say no to drug abuse--all drug abuse?

We at Narconon International know that the best solution for the problem is effective drug education done early and done well! And that's why Narconon® drug education--booklets, videos, live presenters--continues in heavy demand worldwide.

The First Step Program  

• The person tries to escape some physical or emotional pain by taking drugs.

• The person finds that drugs offer temporary relief so continues to use them.

• Cells in the body become accustomed to large amounts of drug metabolites (a broken down form of the drug).

• When one tries to quit, cells in the body that have become accustomed to such large amounts of metabolites are now forced to deal with much decreased amounts.

• The body perceives that it needs the drug to function and demands the drug through physical cravings.

• With continued use of the drug, the body's inability to completely eliminate all traces of the drug metabolites diminishes. The metabolites that remain are stored in the fatty tissues and these, released, cause cravings.

• Cravings become so severe that the addict will do almost anything (in many cases abandoning all previous moral teachings) to get more of the drug.

• The addict commits misdeeds against family, friends and self to satisfy these unrelenting cravings.

• Because of these misdeeds, the addicts cannot face themselves and dive deeper into drugs.

• They are now entrapped in full blown addiction, with two aspects of the condition. The biophysical condition and the biochemical personality. NARCONON addresses The Biochemical Side and the reasons why a person became addicted in the first place.
