First Step – Withdrawal
Upon arriving the student will go through the withdraw process, during this phase the student is under constant staff supervision and everything possible is done to make sure the student is comfortable and medically supervised. This stage is required for all new students and serves as an orientation to the rest of the program.
Nutrition, including vitamin and mineral supplements, is the first component of the withdrawal 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.
Assists are easily done procedures that can be applied by anyone to help a person recover more rapidly from accidents, mild illnesses or upsets.
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 predisposition to remain in an intolerable condition.
Help the person look outward and get in communication with the environment around him
The third component of the drug rehab 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.
An addict can be quite low in his ability to communicate and confront others as witnessed in most by their tendency to withdraw from life.
This area will need a lot of work and is further addressed later in the program. The first section is an elementary introduction back into life and is vital for success with the next phase.
