U.S. Leader in Illegal Drug Use—More Effective Drug Rehabilitation Needed

US Senate

According to a new survey, the U.S. leads over 40 other nations in illegal drug use. Drugs like cocaine, alcohol, and marijuana are among the most used by U.S. citizens. In a time where we are now the leaders in drug use, it’s time to focus on effective drug rehabilitation. Instead of being the leaders in drug use, we need to be the leaders in effective treatment.

Although the most common form of treatment are 12-step programs, there are several other types of rehabilitation. More and more people are beginning to focus on the holistic value of rehabilitation, and cleansing the body of all the harmful toxins that were ingested when using drugs. Narconon Louisiana is a type of drug rehab program that handles the body as well as the mind.

New Life Detoxification is designed to free the body of metabolites left behind from drug or alcohol addiction. Most addicts will agree that one of the hardest obstacles to overcome when trying to stay clean is the intense cravings. Cravings are brought on by the drug metabolites being released into the blood stream, reminding the body that the drugs or alcohol are “necessary”. Once enrolled in New Life Detoxification, clients take part in some light exercise and then spend time in a dry heat sauna. Once free from the constant cravings that come with drug and alcohol use, they are able to focus on the underlying reasons for their addiction.

Narconon Louisiana does not subscribe to the idea that addiction is a disease, instead it uses the unique Narconon rehabilitation technology that gets to the problem at its source—and provides a path for long-term success.

Narconon Louisiana is an inpatient facility located just outside of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Opened in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, this facility focuses on providing a safe, calming atmosphere to permanently handle addiction.

While the U.S. is the leader of illegal drug use, it does not mean that effective rehabilitation is not available. Drug and alcohol use does not have to go unhandled. If you or anyone you know are in need of help, please call Narconon Louisiana.
