How Narconon Handles Meth Use
The joy of using meth and the anxiety from withdrawing from the drug makes meth one of the most addictive substances in the world. This leaves a person feeling helpless and alone. A person who is a meth addict continues to use the drug, even though they are experiencing negative consequences in their life as a result. They are not able to choose whether they are going to use meth. Instead, they experience a “need” for it that becomes a driving force in their life. They believe that they have to have the drug despite the cost or consequences.
Meth is a stimulant, Schedule II drug. Stimulants have chemical structures that are similar to the brains neurotransmitters called monoamines. These stimulants increase the level of these chemicals in the brain and body. This causes increases blood pressure and heart rate, as well as constricts blood vessels. This gives the body an increase in dopamine which gives the body a sense of euphoria. When misused, stimulants can be very addictive and can result in irregular heartbeat, dangerously high body temperatures and potential for cardiovascular failure or seizures. Taking high doses of stimulants for short periods of time can cause paranoia and hostility in individuals.

Narconon Handles Meth Addiction
When a person uses meth, the drug changes how a person thinks and feels. When they come off the drug, it leaves them feeling guilty and alone. The drug causes hallucinations and actually brings a person out of reality so much that a person cannot distinguish what is true and what the drug makes them think is real.
Narconon Arrowhead specializes in helping meth abusers overcome their addiction by using a unique process, which clears the body of all drug metabolites and gives them the tools to stay drug free for a lifetime.

To clear the body of all drug metabolites and other toxins, addicts sit in a dry sauna for 5 hours a day taking 5-10 minute breaks every 20 minutes. They are required to drink up to 2 gallons of water to prevent dehydration. During this process the user may actually feel some old effects of the drug as they are sweating them out. This process on average lasts 30 days but varies depending on the individual. Once a person has completed this process, they feel younger and more vibrant.
