The False Claims of Drug Rehab Programs

The False Claims of Drug Rehab Programs
Drug rehabilitation programs can be the only ray of light in a world full of darkness for somebody who has gone down the path of addiction. This curse leads only to plight and misery, be it of tobacco, alcohol or other recreational drugs like cocaine, meth, heroin, marijuana or ecstasy, or even the abuse of simple over the counter medication like pain killers and sleeping pills or muscle relaxants.

The most common false claim of these drug rehabilitation programs can be about the duration of the program itself, which is a deciding factor in the success or failure of the treatment. A simple program might just include a short detoxification program which serves only to flush out the drugs that have been piling up in your system, without any heed to the effects of withdrawal that the participant will have to go through in the coming days.

Another way which adds to the ambiguity surrounding the authenticity of these programs is the nature of the detoxification process itself and what types of drugs or procedures it employs for the treatment. Some programs like Narconon Fresh Start go for an entirely natural approach, using a steam chamber to accelerate the excretion of drugs from the body. Unlike Narconon Fresh Start, other programs might take a more targeted approach by giving the relative antidote or antagonist of the class of the drug being abused. 

Once the body is relatively free of drugs, along with maintaining vital nutrient and electrolyte balance in the body with proper diet, a rigorous program to cope with the withdrawal effects is of the essence, in the absence of which the entire process can be quite painful for the participant as well as taxing on their loved ones as well, which needs proper medical attention and perhaps even sedative drugs to complete the transition process. Once the withdrawal phase has successfully been gone through, the program must consider the real phase of rehabilitation which must encompass a regimen of counseling, support and therapy to recondition the individual and allay their false perceptions about the nature of the drugs that they’ve fallen prey to.

Some rehab programs have been known to prescribe drugs using the name of a medical practitioner who had no idea that their name was being used in such a process. Others have come under fire for billing their patients for more than the services being provided, or over charging, or even ordering the same test or drug screen for more than the times usually required, thereby billing the insurance company or indirectly, the tax payers, for tests that were not even necessary.

Narconon Fresh Start has been in the business of the rehabilitation of people involved in drug abuse for more than forty years now and has come a long way in terms of successful treatment and positive acclaim from a satisfied customer base. With its all natural approach and its many courses that teach its participants, Narconon Fresh Start rehab program guides its clients how to steer clear of drugs in the future as well as rediscovering and finding new meaning in their lives.
