Angela’s journey included Percocet, Oxycodone to handle a sports injury, then alcohol and heavier doses of painkillers. Her downward spiral as a mother of three included a DUI, jail and losing custody of her children. Still in denial, an emotional intervention saved her. Angela is now living a drug-free life with happy children.
The standard 28 day rehab program often fails. It’s usually just not long enough to get someone stably sober. When you consider that someone did not become addicted in 28 days – it may have taken many months or years of scaling up to full on addiction – it a hard road to rehab in 28 days.
However, 28 days is what insurance will generally pay for. When parents and loved ones come to Narconon for help, they often ask if rehab works and if it can be done on a limited time frame. The answer is no. But their program ‘takes as long as it takes’ as their goal is a drug-free, stable and winning individual.
A large percentage of people addicted to drugs started on painkillers for some sort of pain. The drugs can exacerbate the pain and add to it and cause it to get worse physically and mentally as addictions. Listen to the stories of how the Narconon program helped people overcome not only drug addiction – but the pain which started the whole “drugs as a solution” cycle.
This podcast also discusses why a holistic, drug free withdraw approach such as Narconon is different and ultimately why it is so successful.
