Narconon

Narconon reminds families that an addict typically does not like being an addict. After a while the lifestyle they live while being addicted to drugs and alcohol gets old. So then one would ask, why they don’t just stop? It is confusing for people who don’t understand addiction. The drugs have become a solution to a life problem. This can only be handled by going to treatment. Don’t just assume it’s a phase, it will end, or they will get tired of it eventually. Then people are left to deal with tragic consequences.
