The word Narconon® comes from the word "Narcotics-None" meaning “No-Drugs!”. The name is appropriate because the Narconon program is a drug-free program. The goal of the program is to help those who are addicted to drugs and alcohol to regain control of their lives. Drug abuse and addiction are problems that break family and friends apart, lower a person’s values, and bring corruption to happy communities. This problem can happen to anyone, no matter where they live.
The Narconon program was created in an Arizona State Prison by a former heroin addict named William Benitez. He used the developments and research of L. Ron Hubbard, an American author and humanitarian. When the Narconon program originated it had only ten inmates who actively participated. Within one year, that number grew to over one hundred and the program began to spread to other prisons. The first public Narconon opened its doors in 1971 and was located in Los Angeles As of today, the Narconon Drug Rehabilitation Program has spread all over the world. There are centers in Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, and across the United States.
A study done by the National Institute of Drug Abuse found that individuals who received help for heroin addiction or heavy cocaine addiction often began using again. The study found that the individual’s drug use was up to at least once a week within a year of receiving help. Sadly, these results are typical for many treatment methods.
The Narconon program is unlike any other program to help people recover from drug addiction. The independent Spanish research group, Tecnicos Asociados de Investigacion y Marketing, found that 70% of all Narconon graduates stayed off drugs. In addition to these findings, an American independent research group found that 86% of all Narconon clients remained drug free two years after they completed the program.
Graduates of the Narconon program do not have the desire to relapse and do not need to take medications to remain off drugs. They are brought back to life and instilled with confidence, control, and have the ability to reach their goals while staying drug-free.
Narconon drug rehab centers provide individuals with a way to conquer their addictions and find happiness in their lives once again.

What is Alcoholism?

Alisa Olazaran

Friday, September 14, 2007 What is Alcoholism? Really? Alcoholism to a person that does not drink is one thing, and Alcoholism to an Alcoholic is an entirely different thing. The definition of Alcoholism is this: "a chronic disorder characterized by dependence on alcohol, repeated excessive use of alcoholic beverages, can you believe this,the development of withdrawal symptoms on reducing or ceasing intake, morbidity that may include cirrhosis of the liver, and decreased ability to function socially and vocationally.

But to an Alcoholic, it is a way of escape, escaping the pain of society.

You see many people think Alcoholism is a disease, but it actually is a disorder, a chronic disorder. Imagine that..but it is my belief that Alcoholism can be brought on by other things. There are people that have mental disorders that have gone on for years not knowing why they feel this way or that way, but that only hitting the bottle makes them feel better (hum) imagine that, people actually walking around with other mental disorders never go diagnosed, such as Manic Depression, these people not only have Manic Depression, but they start hitting the bottle, and this can be another crutch for that person, and when that person finally is diagnosed as having Alcoholism, a lot of times they are never diagnosed as having other mental disorders prior to Alcoholism.

My mother for example: she was an Alcoholic, she passed away three-years...
