LOS ANGELES, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- It is no secret that alcohol and drug abuse lead to risky behavior on the lighter side and a total depletion of honesty and virtues on the most severe. From promiscuity and theft to a lack of production at work and even murder, those who fall in the trap of substance abuse and addiction are largely responsible for the declining moral fabric of our society.
Narconon is considered by many to be the most comprehensive drug rehabilitation and education program in the world. In addition to prevention efforts to keep youth away from drug abuse and their successful drug rehab programs, Narconon's holistic approach deals with all areas of life to help keep former addicts from returning to old patterns or routines that led them to substance abuse in the first place.
As part of its overall curriculum, Narconon uses a book called The Way To Happiness, which is a non-religious, common sense guide to better living that was written by American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The booklet has been translated into 90 languages and distributed to tens of millions of people worldwide. A new video covering the 21 precepts has just been released and is also being used to accompany the book in Narconon rehabilitation centers.
"The application of these principles is vital to restoring addicts' self-respect and responsibility," comments Clark Carr, President of Narconon International. "These unbiased values, when applied, can not only keep people away from relapsing to drugs, but also help make life at home and in their communities better for themselves and others around them. This is especially important for reuniting families this holiday season."
Narconon reminds people that all drugs are basically poisons for a person's body and that the amount taken determines the effect. This is true for over-the-counter medications, alcohol, prescription drugs and of course illicit street drugs. Having a broader understanding about what drug and alcohol abuse do to an individual and how it impacts his or her life is a key element to creating better communities. Narconon's educational approach helps not only restore honesty and trust, but also increases competence and ability.
