TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Narconon of Georgia drug rehabilitation and education program has many outreach activities, but none may be more special than their dedication to saving lives of orphaned children addicted to glue in Honduras.

Narconon Georgia staff recently made another trip to the troubled area, navigating the third-world country amidst an uprising of protesters, to help deliver treatment to these children in order to help them get off the streets and into an orphanage that can provide them with food, clothing, shelter and an education.
As in other parts of the world, Honduras has a growing population of street children. Some are orphaned through the death of their parents, while others have simply been put on the street by parents unable or unwilling to care for them. Unloved and hungry, children often turn to violence and drugs to survive. If they can't steal food, sniffing glue or "flying" is something they will do to ease the pains of hunger and as a result will form severe addictions to the substance.
The treatment being delivered to them is the Narconon(R) New Life Detoxification Program, which is a body cleansing process that eliminates residues of stored toxins to relieve the physical cravings for these chemicals and allows people to have greater stability and mental capacity. It incorporates dry heat sauna therapy, nutritional supplements and exercise to repair their bodies after the damage caused by the chemicals.
This is the same procedure used at Narconon of Georgia to help addicts permanently recover from other drugs, and is just one part of the long-term rehabilitation program that has been helping people successfully overcome addiction for many years.
Notwithstanding the current social and political unrest there, Narconon staff members are dedicated to help these children in Honduras, with the assistance of a local doctor and churches that support the orphanage. "I will continue to help these children, no matter the political strife in the country," said Don Delgado, who has been heading up the Narconon project there for the last three years. "The children are the only real hope that Honduras has for a sane and stable future."
In uncertain times both inside our country and in many other parts of the world, real heroes are the ones like those of Narconon Georgia who are producing change by saving lives from the scourge of drug abuse.
Narconon uses a drug-free rehabilitation and education approach based on the research and developments by the late American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The program has been providing drug rehab and prevention services successfully around the world for more than four decades.
