Breakthrough in Drug Rehabilitation: In-Home, Drug-Free Withdrawal!   PDF  Print  Email 

Withdrawal from alcohol and other drugs can be a painful, even life-threatening process. An addict's entire family can be frustrated with the addict's unwillingness to get help. What they may not know is that even if he/she is "serious" about quitting, drug withdrawals may be too gruesome for them to face!

If there was a way to help the addict during their first week of abstinence from drugs, experience has shown, that many would remain "clean". And even if they "slip," one could put them through withdrawal again and give them yet another chance at sober living.

Withdrawal from drugs (also known as "detox") is the first step any addict goes through when they arrive at a Narconon facility. Time and time again, I have heard former addicts comment on the "pleasant surprise" they had going through Narconon's drug-free, humane withdrawal.

Unfortunately, not all addicts can make it to a Narconon facility for residential drug and alcohol treatment.

For that reason, Narconon International has put together a book which contains all the information an addict's family or friend may need to put them through a drug-free, in-home withdrawal, just as we do at Narconon facilities the world over. The book is easy to understand and the techniques used are simple. It is called the Narconon First Step Program. See our Drug Education website on-line bookstore for details.

Withdrawal from heavy liquor and most prescription drugs should be done under medical supervision.
