Narconon comes from two Greek words, "Narco" meaning drug and "non" meaning no. Narconon therefore means "Drug-No".
The Narconon Newport Beach program itself is unique in its entirety and a number of components make up Narconon's high success rate. Foremost, you must understand Narconon is not a traditional 12 step program. Most treatment centers today rely on a combination of 12 step recovery methods along with group therapy to handle the addiction problem. While some people respond to this type of treatment, the majority unfortunately do not. In fact, similar to the staggeringly low percentage of people who are able to stop on their own, only 1 or 2 people who go through traditional treatment out of 10 may successfully end their drug or alcohol "career" for life. At Narconon, just the opposite is happening. Approximately 7 out of 10 people permanently conquer their addiction after completing the program. Three areas of the program that stand out and are addressed with emphasis at Narconon that are not intensively treated in more traditional programs are:
1. Physical Detoxification - Long-term use of addictive drugs can cause an accumulation of drug residues and metabolites in the body. These residues can remain in the body for years, causing drug and alcohol cravings and drug-induced depression. Narconon uses an intensive sauna regiment of detoxification that permanently removes these residues, resulting in an individual who is free of the harmful physical effects of mind-altering drugs.
2. Life Skills - Many people do not realize that some of the most common abilities and skills which they use everyday are not instinctual, but are learned. These are all areas in which drug addicts and alcoholics have been found to be deficient. These are NOT instinctive abilities. They require training and practice to perfect. The Narconon program gives heavy emphasis to life-skills training. Some of the areas addressed are communication skills, study skills and applying ethical principles in everyday life. The result is an individual more comfortable with his life and less likely to be overwhelmed by it. The practice of these skills in and of themselves are extremely therapeutic .
3. Therapeutic Procedures - There are a number of therapeutic procedures unique to the Narconon program. These therapies are designed to free a person from the guilt, remorse and regret of past actions, and to restore the self-control that is inevitably sacrificed when a person becomes addicted to drugs or alcohol.
