Physical Cravings & Drug Residues in the Body
Drugs Are not All Eliminated from the Body
When drugs are metabolized and cause their toxic effects in the body, some of the metabolites and drug residues remain stored in body fats and tissues. For many years, medical science has disbelieved this fact but this is now a well known and documented phenomenon.
Traditional drug treatment plans, to assist drug addicts with substance abuse "recovery", have always used drug detox methods considered to be complete when there is a negative outcome upon testing for drugs in the blood or urine. When levels of alcohol or drug metabolites are below a certain threshold in the bloodstream, an addict is considered "clean". Traditional methods used for drug detox are incomplete as they do not take care of the drug residues stored in fats and other tissues.
What has happened in the past is that when "detoxed" addicts have felt stressed, or been exposed to drug taking "triggers" they have suffered from intense cravings for drug use, at both a physical and emotional level. Having still drug metabolites stored in their body and lacking effective life skills or emotional support, "detoxed" addicts exposed to pressure have simply relapsed into drug using behavior.
A Reason for Continual Relapses
So powerful is the compulsion to relapse into drug use, when an addict has physical cravings, that traditional programs for drug rehabilitation consider occasional drug relapse to be almost inevitable during the course of traditional "addiction recovery". In anticipation of what is seen as being an inevitable, occasional relapse, traditional drug programs factor in contingency plans to help "recovering" addicts to overcome the setback of drug relapse - and remount the unruly horse of traditional drug addiction recovery.
Indeed, addicts who use traditional 12 steps and substitute drug methods in an attempt to overcome their addiction are in for a rough ride - that can last a lifetime. People who remain with addictive cravings as a result of engaging with traditional drug rehab programs find there is no middle road, no relaxed contentment in their life - every day on guard lest substance abuse and their addiction should once again get the upper hand.
People with unabated cravings, despite years of abstinence often create massive psychological defenses against the possibility of relapse. This can range from scapegoating others as being the cause of one's general irritability and vulnerability to relapse, to involvement in messianic crusades against the evils of drinking and drugs, or the formation of lifetime buddy support systems that don't enable resolution of the causes of continued addiction.
Sauna Detoxification - Truly Eliminating the Physical Cravings
Narconon is a comprehensive drug and alcohol recovery program with over 40 years of experience in the field of substance abuse rehabilitation. It has been proven many times that addiction recovery is impeded by the presence of drug residues, often stored in the body for years. Mobilized when under stress, drug residues in body tissues fan the flames of emotional distress - and contribute to relapse.
Complete removal from the body of drug residues stored in fats and body tissues, as done with the Narconon Sauna Detox, is the only sound basis for intended complete addiction recovery. People can work, with some success, on the emotional causes of relapse - only to find the good work undermined when stress levels mobilize latent drug residues and there arises a physical craving for drug use.
Research into chemical toxicity in the human body today leaves no one in any doubt that the body stores and is disordered by a vast range of modern day chemical toxins, of which modern day drugs are no exception. The question is no longer "are the chemicals there," but how can we safely extract them.
The Hubbard Detoxification Method
Narconon is unique in drug detoxification today in that it alone provides, to students of its comprehensive methodology for complete addiction recovery, an effective protocol for the safe and complete removal of toxic drug residues from the addict's body. Narconon uses the world acclaimed Hubbard Method for Detoxification of the Human Body, under license from ABLE - The Association for Better Living and Education, International.
The Hubbard method for detox uses low temperature dry heat sauna - the primary route for the extraction of drug residues being natural perspiration. Safety and efficiency is ensured by strict compliance to the protocol, a protocol that has been proven effective and is accepted as being conforme to best practice in modern methods of chemical detoxification by international experts.
