However, in 2009, a bright spot in the field of drug addiction has shown through.
Narconon East U.S. has had a very successful year in drug prevention, education and rehabilitation. The way to stop drug addiction before it starts is through effective drug education. Narconon, which was established in 1966, delivers drug prevention and education lectures to schools, community groups and businesses. As research statistic show that many new drug users begin at the age of 12, Narconon focuses its lectures on school-aged children and over 3.5 million children have been reached.
Narconon lectures are unique from ordinary drug education talks because the drug prevention specialists reach the children at their reality level and get them participating, as well as learning about the dangers of drugs. In New England, the Narconon Drug Education and Prevention group reached over 2,500 people in 2009 in the New England area, informing them on the dangers of drugs and steering them into leading drug-free lives.
As many in our nation have already traveled the road of drug addiction, it is important to have a program that successfully rehabilitates a drug addict. Narconon drug rehabilitation does just that, with several exact steps within the overall program, handling both the physical and mental aspects of addiction.
The Narconon program has been widely delivered throughout the Eastern United States in 2009 at 6 different drug rehabilitation facilities ranging from Michigan in the north to Georgia and Florida in the south and Louisiana in the west. These Narconon centers have effectively freed over 240 people from drug addiction in 2009 and set them on the road to living happy, successful, drug-free lives.
Narconon graduates rave about the program as this graduate states, "I came into Narconon a broke-down person who had no control or power over choice...It's not just drugs that got handled, it was my life. Instead of doubting myself, I know I can now achieve all my goals. This was the best decision I have ever made. I have my life back!"
Another Narconon graduate in 2009 says, "I wanted to detox from cocaine...I signed up for the (Narconon) program and was informed that there was hard work involved. I saw remarkable results in the students that were graduating and was inspired. The course work is where the biggest gains for me were made. I found out about the whys and wherefores of human behavior, especially relating to basic life skills...I am honored and very grateful for the new life that I have received."
Narconon program has been successfully saving lives since 1966 and has more than 120 centers in 50 different countries. Narconon has been delivering successful drug rehabilitation and education services in the eastern United States for 10 years and will continue its expansion this coming year and for many years to come.
