Drug Rehab: Do Better Results Come From Narcanon or 12-Step Type Programs? Is Religion Behind Your Answer?

Question by fisherman: Drug rehab: Do better results come from narcanon or 12-step type programs? Is religion behind your answer?
Our problem is a cocaine addiction. Does the 12-step program really demean the individual? Is the narcanon (Ron Hubbard) approach as good, better? Do you have personal experience?

The Narconon approach will not be as effective as any other detox out there because Narconon does not actually TREAT or REHABILITATE in any truly effective way.

For instance, one of the Narconon methods to cleanse a body of toxins is to “sweat it out”. Narconon’s clients stay in the sauna for up to five hours at temperatures of up to 80C (170F), ten times longer than the recommended maximum. This poses major risks for health; such a lengthy period of extreme heat can easily lead to hyperthermia, heat exhaustion, salt or potassium depletion, heat stroke and breathing difficulties, which could prove highly dangerous for asthma sufferers.

Narconon also risks poisoning theirs users with “vitamin bombs”. The State of Oklahoma’s examiners reported in 1991 that “The use of high amounts of vitamins and minerals in the amounts described administered by Narconon can be potentially dangerous to the patients of Narconon according to the more credible medical evidence …” Many of the dosages set by Hubbard far exceed the recommended maximum intakes set by the United States Institute of Medicine’s Food and Nutrition Board (FNB).

In almost every single case, Hubbard recommends dosages well above the safe limits, in some cases as much as 142 times more than the toxic level. The side effects of such huge overdoses range from liver damage, hair loss, brain swelling and nausea up to fatal heart and respiratory failure.
