The Narconon® First Step Program:
The Narconon First Step Program is exactly what
it is named-a “first step”. The first step, of course,
is to get off the drugs, to stop using them. Then one can get on
with all the steps of recovery, which might be the full Narconon
drug rehabilitation program or something else.
The Narconon drug rehabilitation program uses a totally drug-free
method of withdrawal. This can also be learned and followed by someone
who desires to come off drugs on their own, with the help of another.
The Narconon First Step Program is a drug-free approach to withdrawal.
It is a program designed to help an individual come off drugs without
experiencing the wretched withdrawal symptoms that often set in
while a person is kicking a drug habit. This program has demonstrated
consistent success in diverse centers from Australia to Brazil,
Taiwan to the United States and Europe. Whether delivered from a
doctor’s clinic or office, a community center run by a church or
other social betterment group, or even by a private individual,
results so far have shown that a remarkable 80% of still drug-using,
addicted students who attend this “seminar format” workshop
succeed in withdrawing to zero consumption, usually within 30 days.
In the Narconon® First Step program, alcohol and other drug
addicts come in voluntarily to an educational, hands-on workshop,
accompanied when possible by a sober, supportive family member or
friend. In a one or two day format, these addicts learn about and
start using immediately specific nutritional supplements, communication
exercises, and other self-help assists to radically diminish the
discomforts of physically withdrawing from drugs of abuse. Then
still on a voluntary basis, at home and calling in daily, or daily
coming in to a Narconon community center (when available), these
persons step down off their addictions at whatever gradient is workable
for them, with the support of their help-mate or family member.
The program is made up of three parts, each developed by L. Ron
Hubbard, which have been found extremely successful in getting a
person off drugs in a relatively pain-free manner. These three components
work together to help an addict successfully and as painlessly as
possible withdraw from drugs.
- Nutrition, including vitamin and mineral supplements, is the
first component of the program. It has been found that continued
use of drugs can speed up the burning of reserves of vitamins
in one’s system and can leave the person with severe deficiencies.
These lost nutrients must be replaced during withdrawal or the
person will continue to experience the discomforts brought about
by these deficiencies. Considerable research into the field of
nutrition and vitamin supplements has found them to be of great
benefit in replenishing the body of lost nutrients vital to maintaining
normal body functions and to ease the pain of withdrawal.
- The program also makes use of “Assists”. Assists
are easily done procedures that can be applied by anyone to help
a person recover more rapidly from accidents, mild illnesses or
upsets. This is the second component of the program. The assists
used are designed to help prevent or lessen any muscle spasms,
cramps or pain the person experiences during withdrawal and help
to lessen his pre-disposition to remain in an intolerable condition.
- The third component of the program consists of light “objective”
procedures designed to help the person look outward and get in
communication with the environment around him. Objective procedures
are exercises done to help bring a person into the present by
getting him to locate things in his environment. They direct a
person’s attention from inward on himself, his past experiences
or even his current physical or emotional pain, to outward to
the environment where he is right now. By getting the person to
look outward, these exercises ease withdrawal and make it possible
for the person to successfully come off drugs.
The Narconon First Step program has demonstrated consistent success
in diverse centers from Australia to Brazil, Taiwan to the United
States and Europe. Whether delivered from a doctor’s clinic or office,
a community center run by a church or other social betterment group,
or even by a private individual, results so far have shown that
a remarkable 80% of still-drug-using, addicted students who participate
in this seminar format workshop succeed in withdrawing to zero consumption,
usually within 30 days.
These methods are taught in a workshop, but can also be learned
directly from written materials.
