    7. UROD~Naltrexone~Ibogaine

      UROD aka Ultra Rapid Opiate Detox There is really nothing "rapid" about it according to the dozens upon dozens of personal horror stories from those who have had the experience with this procedure. UROD is usually followed with Naltrexone(Revia)either in pill form or as an implant. We suggest you do a thorough research before deciding on this method.

    13. Spirituality

      I once heard the difference between spirituality and religion explained by an old timer at an AA meeting.... His said that Religion is for people who are afraid to go to hell. Spirituality is for those who have been there and dont want to go back. We addicts have undoubtedly been thru hell and once clean need to find a power greater than ourselves to help keep us from going back there.

    14. Narcotics Anonymous

      The research has been done, the instructions to stop the madness are available at your local meeting.... NA was originally created by heroin addicts for heroin addicts in the 1950s. Fashioned after the Alcoholics Anonymous program, the NA program has helped 100s of 1000s of addicts to live a successfully recovering life. This forum is not necessarily NA only. There are many facets to addiction and just as many 12 step programs. Welcome to those who are already 12 steppers and to those who are curious or interested in learning about the program. Please folks let's keep it positive! If you think NA meetings are a bunch of malarky or if you think it's not for you then by all means feel free to refrain from posting.
