Narconon Trois-Rivieres Celebrates Victory over Drug Abuse in 2010

with one comment

Trois-Rivières, Québec, Canada: Narconon Trois-Rivieres saved lives in 2010 and vows to save even more people from the grip of drug and alcohol addiction in 2011. Marc Bernard, the Executive Director of Narconon Trois-Rivières expresses joy over the many people who have beaten addiction and now live happy, healthy lives. He continues on to say: “A person who has become free of drug and alcohol dependence is not only improving the quality of his or her life but this also helps to create islands of sanity in the communities where the ex-addict returns. With this in mind
we, the Narconon Trois-Rivières Staff and I, are committed to do our
part in 2011 to help even more individuals to beat their addiction and
therefore contribute to better our society at large.”

Graduates of the Narconon Trois-Rivieres program and rehab center in 2010 praise the program and staff. Some comments include:

“This program has changed my life completely. I have never completed something big in my life and this is a huge step into my life. My perspective on life has changed completely and I’m looking forward to starting a new clean sober life. Thanks to the Narconon program and the staff.” — C.S.

“I feel so happy to be a whole, solid, strong confident person again. It is great to have found me again!” –S.K.

“The feeling I have now after completing the Narconon program is something I never thought would be possible for me. The tools the program gave me, the knowledge and the confidence to live a drug free life exceed far beyond any expectation I had when coming in the program. I know now that I have the control to be the contributing member of society that I always wanted to be. All the wins and gains that I got out of this program are unexplainable. They are going to be carried with me for the rest of my life.

“I saved my life with the Narconon program; my decision to come to this program was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. I’m looking forward to applying everything I’ve learned here when I leave.” — A.S.

The Narconon Trois-Rivieres rehab center is committed to change even more lives in the upcoming year by providing more information and out-reach to communities. As one of the graduates in 2010 states: “I love this program. It’s not easy but it makes you so strong!” — M.R. Narconon Trois-Rivieres gives straight answers and has a proven track record when it comes to success.

Drug rehab at its best can be found at Narconon Trois-Rivieres, and the words of the graduates speak volumes to their efforts.  Those who have completed the program (and Narconon boasts a very high rate of success) could not imagine having chosen a different drug rehab. They are truly happy, changed people through the efforts of Narconon Trois-Rivieres and their successful program methods. One graduate constructed a lengthy “thank you” to the staff at Narconon. This, in part, is the sentiment it conveyed: “And today, not only do I have my life back, and a drug free life, but I have gained SO much more. My belief in myself is BACK. For the first time in as long as I can remember, I have self-worth. Actually, I don’t EVER remember ever feeling like I WAS worth anything, to anybody since I was a child.” –L.V.

The beginning of the New Year is the perfect time for people to admit to their addictions and seek help. Narconon Trois-Rivieres will be there to provide that help. Their knowledgeable staff and proven methods will allow even more people to become drug and alcohol free in 2011, thanks to their drug rehab.

How Can Narconon Trois-Rivières Help You Start the Year on the Right Foot

with one comment

The New Year is almost here and people are beginning to make their resolutions. It is much the same as any other year. However, it could be the most remarkable year ever if an addict decides to abandon their abuse and live a drug-free life. It is one of the most important and life changing resolutions that can be made, and Narconon Trois-Rivières can help addicts achieve that says Marc Bernard, Executive Director of the facility.

Not only the addict, but loved ones dream of a day when drugs no longer run their lives. They dream of a New Year with happiness instead of pain and tears. This can be the year to make that happen. Narconon Trois-Rivières has helped so many people to leave drugs and alcohol behind and begin new lives. Their drug rehabilitation centers use proven methods to rid the body of unwanted chemicals and also to teach addicts how to react to triggers and stress instead of turning to drugs. They understand what addiction does and how to leave it behind.

Narconon Trois-Rivières Graduation

This year can be different for addicts and their families. A New Year without drugs is a dream just waiting to happen. How many lives could be happier if addiction were not a part of them? For every addict, there are many people who are affected. Friends, loved ones, co-workers, even entire communities are affected by addiction. What a great year it could be for everyone involved if there were no addictions. Every addict must make a choice, every day, whether to continue addiction. All it takes is that one day when they say “enough is enough. Today, I’m going to change my life.”

M. Bernard tells us : Narconon Trois-Rivières has the resources to help addicts deal with life’s stress and hardships. There are other ways to deal with them other than drugs and alcohol. In fact, drugs and alcohol cause more stress than they relieve. Most of the time, an addict cannot see that until they are drug-free. Then, it all makes sense. Drug rehabilitation centers help to make sense of it all.

There is hope, and there is happiness available to anyone, including drug and alcohol addicts and their loved ones. Narconon Trois-Rivières reaches out to people with addictions every day offering that hope and happiness. The New Year can bring about a wonderful change in the life of an addict and their loved ones. Addiction can be beaten, and Narconon Trois-Rivières helps do just that.

The Sensible Present for a Loved One Stuck in Addiction

without comments

- Narconon Trois-Rivières Drug Rehabilitation

So, while we are scurrying around trying to find the perfect gift for everyone on our list, the question arises; What do I get for my addicted friend (loved one)? The biggest mistake people make this time of year is ignoring the problem of alcoholism and drug addiction. Denying it, or ignoring it won’t solve the problem. The loved one with the addiction doesn’t “need” money (you know how they’ll spend it). They don’t need a new robe, or a new coffee mug. What they need is help. What better gift to give than a spot in an effective drug treatment center such as Narconon Trois-Rivières? It’s a gift that will always be appreciated in the long run.

Ending the cycle can bring new possibilities to the loved one who is going through addiction. Narconon Trois-Rivières and other effective drug treatment centers provide all of the tools needed to beat the addiction and go on to lead a happy, healthy life. That’s quite a gift! It probably won’t be warmly received at first, but once they have completed the program, they will agree that it is the best gift they have ever gotten; the gift of living life anew. They probably would never expect the gift of effective drug treatment, but it is what is needed.

Happy Holidays!

They don’t need a new robe, or a new coffee mug. What they need is help. What better gift to give than a spot in an effective drug treatment center such as Narconon Trois-Rivières? It’s a gift that will always be appreciated in the long run.

Narconon Trois-Rivieres is Proposing Solutions to Get an Alcoholic to Stop Drinking

without comments

Alcoholism is not something people do just to pass the time. It is something that can begin innocently enough, but then becomes ingrained into the very being of the individual. Instead of the person controlling the alcohol, the alcohol begins controlling the alcoholic. Telling them to “stop drinking” simply is not going to work. You may as well be telling them to stop breathing. Oh, it is possible for them to stop drinking, but it takes a well established and proven program to help them succeed – Narconon Trois-Rivieres says it provides such a program.

In order for someone to stop drinking, they must not only stop the intake of alcohol, but learn what triggers their desire. They must also own up to what their alcoholism has done in their lives, and the lives of loved ones. They must also rid their body completely of alcohol. Finally, they must learn new and better ways to deal with the stressors in their lives. This cannot be accomplished by simply telling them to stop drinking.

Telling someone to stop drinking, along with a firm zero tolerance rules can, however, help lead the alcoholic to treatment. Along with confronting them with their alcoholism, there must be new rules set forth which make it clear that drinking will not be allowed in your home, or in your life. That gives an answer to “or what?” when you tell them to stop drinking. The reasons for them to stop must be clear. If there are no consequences, other than those they are able to deny, there isn’t much motivation to stop drinking.

Simply by telling someone to stop drinking, you are only beating your head against a wall. It may make you feel better saying it, but it won’t be effective unless you back up the words with action. Intervention is not always easy, and it is best to get the advice of trained addiction counselors like the ones found at Narconon Trois-Rivieres, but it can prove successful. Back up the words with zero tolerance and force the alcoholic to see that they are not fooling anyone with their alcoholism or their denial.

Many times, the alcoholic wants to stop drinking, but they don’t know how, or they don’t believe they can. This is part of the alcoholism. They can stop drinking, and often it is loved ones that help them to realize that. Actions speak louder than words, as the saying goes, so backing up “stop drinking” with some serious action may make all the difference in the world.

Narconon Trois-Rivieres Holidays Message -Please, Don’t Drink and Drive

without comments

How often those words are spoken, and yet so many times they are just dismissed. Sadly, it sometimes takes a personal tragedy to make these words seem important. There would, realistically be far less tragedy if people would only heed the words; Please don’t drink and drive. Drinking and driving causes a staggering loss of life, not to mention some life altering injuries.

Holidays and social gatherings go together. If only more people would realize that they can be just as fun, just as joyous, without alcohol. Drunk driving causes more deaths during the holidays than any time throughout the year. No one is more aware of this than Narconon Trois-Rivieres, which has an excellent alcohol rehab program. Sadly, too many people wait until the damage is done to seek treatment. Drinking, drinking and driving, and fatal accidents all go together. Sometimes, the person drinking isn’t even the one driving. Many pedestrians are killed as well while under the influence of alcohol.

Drinking and driving is literally a game of roulette. No one ever thinks they are too impaired to drive when they have been drinking, but the results are devastating. Many times, the survivor, the one who has been drinking and driving, must live with the consequences for the rest of their lives. Taking another human life is not something that anyone takes lightly. Narconon Trois-Rivieres is there to help. Sometimes, just calling and getting straight answers is all someone needs to get help.

“Please, don’t drink and drive”. These are five simple words that can save so very many lives and prevent so many useless deaths. Drinking and driving are a deadly combination. If you do drink, please have someone else drive. Many taxi companies offer free rides home during the holiday season for people who have been drinking. It certainly is worth checking into! Even if you must foot the bill, $20 is a small price to pay to know that lives may have been saved.

Everyone should be on the lookout for those who have been drinking and driving. Devastation can happen in the blink of an eye. It is best to do a lot of defensive driving, especially during the holidays when people are drinking and driving. Don’t let yourself become another statistic. If you drink, don’t drive. If you will be driving, don’t drink. It’s simple, really.

Narconon Trois-Rivieres Hits Home with New Drinking and Driving PSA

without comments

Trois-Rivières, Québec, Canada – The holiday season can bring wonderful times with many celebrations to be had, family and friends all coming together.  For the staff at Narconon Trois-Rivieres this time of year especially is all about helping those suffering from drug and alcohol addictions, and part of this is effective drug and alcohol education.  “With this new PSA we wanted people to see not only the good the holiday season can bring, but also the devastating impact drinking and driving can have on the individual and their loved ones,” commented JF Dubreuil, Director of Promotion and Marketing at Narconon Trois-Rivieres.

Drinking and driving impacts people all over the world and can tend to be even more devastating around this time of year.  The consequences when caught driving under the influence are quite severe, and when another person is hurt or even killed because of it, everyone’s life is flipped upside down.  “Unfortunately this is a very real part of alcohol addiction,” said Mr. Dubreuil. “It does not take much to affect your ability to operate a vehicle and make rational decisions.  Our counsellors here speak with families every day looking to help a loved one whom is addicted to alcohol.”

Narconon Trois-Rivieres offers a very extensive and in-depth alcohol and drug treatment program and in some cases people have been sent there because of a drinking and driving charge.  The staff works hard to help these individuals regain control of their lives again, and through PSA’s like this one, hope to help prevent people from drinking and driving in the first place.  “We want everyone to have a very safe and happy holidays, and don’t drink and drive,” added Mr. Dubreuil.  “It doesn’t take much to take a cab, call a friend, or even stay the night, but please, for the sake of your family and friends, don’t get behind the wheel after drinking.”   For more information about the Narconon Trois-Rivières alcohol and drug rehab program, please call 1-877-782-7409 or visit their website at http://narconon.ca/.
