Albion, MI – Narconon Freedom Center is observing “Plant the Seeds of Greatness Month” with a campaign to encourage addicts to dedicate February to making significant and positive changes in their lives.
“Plant the Seeds of Greatness” month is celebrated in February and was created to encourage Americans to examine their goals and make changes. If one is unhappy with their present situation, this is the time to discover how one can remove the barriers and make positive changes in their life.
“This aligns perfectly with the Narconon program. Addicts we talk to are very unhappy with their current situation and want to make positive changes. They just don’t know how. The powerful drugs they are taking make it very difficult to make positive changes and they are the barrier that needs to be removed. Due to the strength of drugs today, it is very difficult to do it alone and just stop. The first step is planting a seed and deciding to make a change. We are encourages all addicts to plant this seed,” said John Walser, Senior Intake Counselor, Narconon Freedom Center Michigan.

Narconon Freedom Center is alerting parents to 6 dangerous substances found in marijuana as part of their ongoing Dangers of Drugs awareness campaign. These substances were found by researchers at the University of New Haven in Connecticut.
In the production of marijuana, various substances can be found in the drug, like insects, pesticides and mold. Other byproducts found are fungi, mildew and bacterial contaminants (like e-coli and salmonella).
One of the researchers, Heather Miller Coyle, found that many of these substances can be seen with the naked eye on the surface of plants.
“Some states having legalized marijuana for medicinal or recreational use. A majority of the students enrolling say they think marijuana is safe because it has been legalized. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Not only can it contain these dangerous substances, the main psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, THC, attacks the central nervous system’s supply of magnesium which is necessary to keep nerves relaxed and healthy,” says John Walser, Senior Intake Counselor, Narconon Freedom Center.

Narconon Freedom Center reports on the January 2014 new drug trends as part of their continuing drug education campaign to parents and the loved ones of those struggling with addiction. New drugs and drug use trends often burst on the scene rapidly and January 2014 is seeing drug abuse of “Krokodil”, “N-Bomb”, Cough Syrup containing codeine called “Syrup”, “Purple Drank”, “Sizzurp”, or “Lean” and “Molly”.
Factors that can spur new drug trends are supply, cost or a tolerance to the drug one is taking. Developing a tolerance for a drug means that the person no longer experiences the same pain relief or euphoric high with the original dosage so they try a higher dosage or a more potent drug. It is common for drug addicts to constantly try new drugs or new drug administration methods searching for ways to boost themselves to higher highs. Additionally, many drug addicts are trying to figure out how to get more drugs for less money.
Narconon Freedom Center is campaigning to raise awareness of the holiday dangers for those struggling with addiction. As the season’s dangers for addicts escalate to their peak on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, the center is urging enrollment in a drug rehab program immediately. Families are encouraged to help their loved ones arrive at a facility.
“Holiday stress starts increasing at Halloween and continues to accumulate through New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Suicides and overdoses increase. We believe getting those struggling with addiction into a rehab program can save their life while giving families peace of mind,” said John Walser, Narconon Freedom Center’s Senior Intake Counselor.
