Narconon Arrowhead recently released their Addiction Referral Specialist Training Manual, a comprehensive and highly educational introduction to the field of drug rehabilitation treatment for those individuals interested in helping to save lives from the ravages of drug addiction.
Addiction Referral Specialist Manual
Based on the study of the material contained in the manual, the Addiction Referral Specialist, or ARS, gains the knowledge needed to help save lives from the destruction and damage of drugs and addiction, and can also help in saving children, families and communities from the widespread devastation stemming from drug-related crime.
Written for anyone who is interested in helping others overcome an addiction to drugs or alcohol, the manual is informative and educational, with clearly defined terms for ease of understanding and with a comprehensive overview of the different types of drug rehabilitation treatment currently in use in our society at this time.
Narconon Arrowhead points out that in its two decades of drug rehabilitation success in helping addicts and alcoholics reclaim their lives from addiction, drug rehab remains one of the most essential parts of the solution to drugs and drug abuse.
Different Types of Treatment

The Narconon Model
The Narconon Model incorporates a drug-free approach to the treatment of addiction, including thorough detoxification of the body, Awareness training and Life Skills training. It has the unique and distinct advantage of being a truly drug-free program. No drugs are used as part of the rehab program, as it has been found that when the true and root causes of an individual’s addictions are thoroughly addressed, drugs are not needed. The guilt, cravings and depression attendant to addiction and its lifestyle lift of their own accord when the Narconon program is thoroughly and properly done.
It is a long-term program without set time limits, giving many people the opportunity to rebuild a life destroyed by drugs.
