Substance Abuse Costs Lives Every Year in Washington
Substance abuse is the nation’s number one health-related problem and the effects can be seen in Washington. Drug and alcohol addiction is the root cause to many other societal problems and it costs our country up to $500 billion each year, in addition to the thousands of lives lost, broken homes and drug-related crime.
Most addiction treatment centers have a limited success rate, where the majority of the clients relapse. This is not the case with Narconon Arrowhead. In fact, approximately 70% of the graduates of our drug and alcohol rehab remain drug free.

How does one go about determining when drug use crosses the line into drug abuse and addiction? Drugs are used as a solution to pain, be it mental, emotional, or physical. Fore instance one takes a painkiller and physical pain subsides or one take a street drug and the emotional pain of feeling like an outsider goes away. There are many motivations but they all come under the heading of handling pain in one way or another. Drug abuse sets in when the drug is being used more and more to mask and cover up the pain rather than addressing the actual causes of the pain itself. From abuse one quickly moves on to addiction where tolerance to the drugs builds up to the point where the individual can�t conceive of life without them for fear of unbearable pain of one type or another. Ones life then becomes centered on acquiring and using more and more drugs at any cost or sacrifice. Along with this comes all the cravings, guilt and depression that results from harm done to self, family, loved ones, careers, etc.
Is there such a thing as Ecstasy addiction? Many think so. But even if the user doesn�t become addicted there are very real dangers that exist. Tragically, Ecstasy is one of the most popular drugs among youth today. It is estimated that more than 10 million people have tried the drug at least once � the vast majority being teenagers and young adults. Mixed with alcohol, ecstasy is extremely dangerous and can, in fact, be lethal. Instances of death from ecstasy have been reported after only one use. Emergency room incidents have skyrocketed over 1200% since ecstasy has become a drug of choice at all night raves and dance clubs.
Most addicts or alcoholics and confronted with multiple factors when it comes to effective drug treatments. One of the first drug treatments is of course a safe cessation of drug use and as gentle a withdrawal from actual use as possible. Another one of the drug treatments is effective detoxification and removal of the actual drug and toxins from the body. This alleviates and in many cases totally removes the cravings which can lead to relapse. Some programs consider the addict �detoxed� once withdrawal is accomplished. At Narconon Arrowhead we deliver the New Life Detoxification Program in addition to withdrawal services. This is a unique and state of the art program which actually removes stored drugs and toxins from the body. There is a definite difference between withdrawal and a full detoxification.
