Narconon Program Phase II
The Communication & Perception Section
A form of cognitive therapy that is applied through specific exercises and drills. The end result is an individual who no longer automatically reacts to situations. Instead, he now thinks out rationally and logically what to do to enhance his own survival. This section is the advanced part of the original communications section started earlier in the program. The client helps another do the exercises. By taking responsibility for helping another, the client increases his own responsibility levels and gains the ability to handle life.
The Ups & Downs in Life Section
Teaches the necessary knowledge to achieve greater personal stability and happiness in life. The client learns to find real friends, relations, and associates that will help him throughout his life. Plus he learns to identify those that will bring him down or are only interested in him for something from which they can prosper. It is an observable fact the drug addict usually has a circle of friends that are actually a liability to him, here he will learn to make good solid relationships.
The Personal Values & Integrity Section
We have all heard the old adage ” Confession is good for the soul” the 12 step programs uses it as step four “personal moral inventory”. Narconon finds it vital for an individual to rid himself of the shame, guilt, baggage, chips on the shoulders, etc. The only way our clients do that completely is through taking responsibility. This section works by raising the client’s responsibility level and then gives him the knowledge necessary to determine one’s own values and achieve high personal integrity and honesty.
The Changing Conditions in Life Section
After one learns to assume responsibility for their life and their behaviors in the above section it will be necessary to repair certain areas of destruction that came about due to their drug use. This section teaches the exact steps that improve current conditions in life and repair previous bad conditions. Some of that repair may need to be done after discharge and that is why this section will often blend with the next.
