Substance Abuse Costs Lives Every Year in Virginia
Substance abuse is the nation’s number one health-related problem and the effects can be seen in Virginia. 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.

Addiction withdrawal is the term applied to the process of terminating or ceasing the use of the drug or alcohol causing the addiction. Withdrawal symptoms are those physical, mental, and emotional discomforts occurring as a result of this process. Some procedures attempt to ease withdrawal with the use of additional drugs or chemicals. This can and does complicate the process as now there are new substances that are creating dependencies along with the intense cravings for the original drug of addiction. In most cases withdrawal can be accomplished with adequate medical monitoring and proper nutrition. Drugs severely deplete vitamin and nutritional stores in the body and when properly addressed will reduce the severity of withdrawal symptoms without the dangers of using additional drugs.

Narconon Arrowhead is not only a drug addiction rehab, but is also a drug abuse rehab. In reality these two are very similar with the main difference being degree of use. If we understand drug abuse as �the harmful and illegal non-medicinal use of drugs or alcohol�; and addiction as �a condition characterized by repeated, compulsive seeking and use of drugs, alcohol or other similar substances despite social, mental, and physical consequences� we see that the line between the two is small at best. Cravings, guilt, and depression resulting from drug or alcohol use are the common denominators between the two and ARE the points needing resolved if one is to achieve lasting sobriety from either abuse or addiction.
Long term, non-traditional drug rehabilitation centers appear to be on the upswing and statistically producing superior results.
