California Drug Treatment Center Succeeds Where Other State Programs Fail

Jan 10, 2008
Matt battled drug addiction for fourteen years, but thanks to a California Drug Treatment Center, he now has a chance at living a drug free life. His journey to get the help that would save his life, started seven years ago when his mother, Lola, found Narconon Vista Bay, a California Drug Treatment Center, on the internet. Impressed with the program's success rate and treatment methods, Lola knew that Narconon was the right choice for her son. However, obstacles lay in her path as Matt, caught in the Oregon Corrections system, could not leave the state. Instead of attending the California Drug Treatment Center, Matt was placed in a state run drug rehab.

However, within two months of completing the drug rehab, Matt was back to using drugs and committing crimes. The program simply could not handle all of the problems most addicts face. Matt's dad explained, "I've come to realize that [the corrections system] is really good at putting addicts in jail or half-way houses, but they don't offer the full spectrum of treatment that an individual needs." One program even required that Matt have thirty days clean before they would even admit him. "If I could get Matt clean for thirty days, then he wouldn't have needed the program, now would he?" his mother exclaimed.

Unfortunately, many drug treatment centers only deal with certain aspects of the rehabilitation process, and many addicts return to using drugs as Matt did. A few years later, Matt found himself in another state run program, but his experience there ended up much like his first experience - full of anxiety and fear. The meetings, the group therapy and the sober living environment were not enough to keep Matt clean.

His father knew he was on a suicide mission. If Matt stayed on this path he would end up dead or locked up for good. His parents decided to seek help one more time. His Mom got on the internet and, once again, came across the California Drug Treatment Center's website, www.drugrehab.net, that she had come across all those years ago. She called determined that one way or another she would get her son to the California drug treatment center.

Despite the legal problems that Matt faced, the staff at the California drug treatment center eased Lola's concerns and in her own words, "made it happen." The staff ensured that Matt's legal issues were handled and shortly after, Matt admitted himself into the treatment center.

Narconon Vista Bay's philosophy is to increase those suffering from drug addiction awareness levels to a point that they can make positive choices and live a drug free live without anxiety and without fear.

Completing the California drug treatment center's program was not easy. There were challenges to overcome, demons to face, and baggage to let go of, but Matt did it. Now, he is a graduate. "I can say with sincerity I'm happy and I'm happy to be sober."

At Matt's graduation from the California drug treatment center, his father said to the group of seventy people who had gathered, "To everybody, I can't say how much this California drug treatment center has done. I can hear it in my son's voice. I can see it in his attitude. I'm confident in Matt and I believe in him."
