What is Methamphetamine?
Studies have revealed methamphetamine to be the most powerful man made stimulant. Methamphetamine is produced 100% synthetically, meaning it is mostly manufactured in illegal laboratories using a cocktail of dangerous household cleaners, and chemicals. A few of these chemicals include lie, battery acid, antifreeze, and drain cleaner, red phosphorous, as well as lantern fuel. When these chemicals are combined to produce methamphetamine, it is not uncommon for explosions to take place. When 1 pound of methamphetamine is produced, there is about 5 pounds of waste produced from the process. The residual waste left behind can be absorbed into the housing walls, roof, and ventilation system. These toxic residues can cause sickness in the individuals who live around them.
Methamphetamine being the powerful stimulant it is, as well as a potent poison, it initially acts as a very euphoric upper. After the stimulating effects of methamphetamine wear off the toxic residuals begin breaking down the body from the inside out. Based off these facts, methamphetamine is often associated with many health issues and risks are associated with the abuse of methamphetamine including but not limited to:
• Heart problems
• Memory loss
• Depression suicide
• Brain damage
Methamphetamine and the Narconon Program
Narconon Arrowhead is one of the leading treatment facilities in treating methamphetamine addiction. The Narconon Program carries an over 70% success rate with methamphetamine addiction. This is a proven statistical success rate based 2 years after an individual completes the Narconon Arrowhead Program. Narconon Arrowhead carries accreditations through the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health, as well as C.A.R.F [Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities]. The Narconon Arrowhead program is a non-traditional program. Non-traditional meaning that the program does not follow a 12 step philosophy, but incorporates a unique method of treatment encompassing both the physical and mental aspects of addiction.
Narconon Arrowhead has many different options available as far as methamphetamine treatment is concerned. At the Narconon Arrowhead Program we take a holistic approach and do not use drugs to get a person off drugs.
Narconon Arrowhead has a 24 hr nursing staff on campus. Narconon also has Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors [L.A.D.C]. Some of the Certified alcohol and Drug Counselors [C.A.D.C], and some of the other counselors at Narconon have struggled with an addiction themselves. This not only helps the student open up to the counselors, but also helps the students coming into the program really relate to the counselors.
Narconon Arrowhead is a long term impatient treatment facility found in Southeast Oklahoma. The Arrowhead facility is located on Oklahoma’s largest manmade lake; Lake Eufaula. Narconon Arrowhead is located in the back of a 500 + acre Arrowhead state park, and is located 5 miles from the nearest town.
The individualized approach to treatment used here at Narconon Arrowhead contributes to one of the highest success rates of Methamphetamine addiction in the nation.
Narconon Arrowhead is a results driven treatment program. What this means is there is no set time for how long it takes an individual to finish the Narconon Arrowhead program. Every individual student is different, and they individual needs that need to be focused on. The Narconon program is designed around those individual needs of the student. Narconon takes a more one on one approach Instead of the traditional “group therapy” used in twelve step type treatment. Instead of sharing their problems and issues with a group of total strangers, we have found a student is much more willing to open up with a counselor one on one. The Narconon Arrowhead program utilizes a state of the art detoxification regimen, known as the N.L.D.P [New Life Detoxification Program]. The New Life Detoxification Program utilizes a dry heat sauna similar to those found in a health spa, in addition to a structured regimen of vitamin and mineral therapy. Anytime an individual puts any kind substance into their system; there is 2 basic ways the body removes the substances. One is through urine and the second is through sweat. This happens to be why they can test for drug use in an individual’s urine. This is why the sauna program is so very successful. By working with the body’s natural action of flushing out toxic residuals, an individual can get a fresh start after completing the New Life Detoxification program.
