the causes of addiction
  No one wants to be a drug addict or alcoholic, but this doesn’t stop people from getting addicted. The most commonly asked question is simply - how? How could my son, daughter, father, sister, or brother become a liar, a thief, someone who can't be trusted? How could this happen? Why won’t they stop?

the cycle of addiction
  We start off with an individual who, like most people in our society, is basically good. This person encounters a problem or discomfort that they do not know how to resolve or cannot confront. This could include problems such as difficulty “fitting in” as a child or teenager, anxiety due to peer pressure or work expectations, identity problems or divorce as an adult. It can also include physical discomfort, such as an injury or chronic pain. The person experiencing the discomfort has a real problem. He feels his present situation is unendurable, yet sees no good solution to the problem. This is the cycle of addiction. Click here or the title above for the full text.
the biochemical aspects of addiction
  When a person drinks or uses drugs over a period of time, the body becomes unable to completely eliminate them all. Drugs and alcohol are broken down in the liver. The resulting metabolites, although removed rapidly from the blood stream, become trapped in the fatty tissues where they remain for years. Tissues in our bodies that are high in fats are turned over very slowly. When they are turned over, the stored drug metabolites are released into the blood stream and reactivate the same brain centers as if the person actually took the drug. The former addict now experiences a drug restimulation (or “flashback”) and drug craving. This is common in the months after an addict quits and can continue to occur for years, even decades.

ending addiction the Narconon way
  The Narconon program, unlike more traditional treatment, deals with both the physical and mental problems brought about by drug use. We restore the addict, both mentally and physically, to the person he was before he began using drugs or alcohol. The end result is a success rate that is 3 to 4 times that of other programs. None of these solutions involves the use of any drug. Click here or the title above for the full text.
