Success for Crystal Meth Drug Addict on YouTube

    TROIS-RIVIERES, Quebec, June 19 /CNW/ -- According to Narconon
Trois-Rivieres, crystal methamphetamine (more commonly referred to as crystal
meth) is a drug known to cause severe addiction problems. The side effects
associated with crystal meth consumption are blatantly devastating: the
shakiness, the paranoia, the agitation and insomnia lasting for days all weigh
heavily on the drug user. Meth is still a drug of choice for many since it is
easily available to anyone and cheaper than numerous other drugs.
    Health officials nationwide express growing concern over whether crystal
meth addicts may ever be capable of breaking free of this life-damaging habit.
Effective and successful drug treatments are scarce, and too many times they
are incapable of meeting the demand. According to addiction counselors, the
relapse rate for crystal meth abusers who entered traditional drug
rehabilitation treatment in 2006 is drastically worse than cocaine at 92%.
    Will Opitz, a former crystal meth addict of 3 years, had lost all threads
of rational thoughts and yielded his self-control to his cravings: "Four days
later [after taking crystal meth] I was still partying.  This was at the
beginning of December 1999.  By the end of December I had lost 50 pounds
because I ate maybe once or twice that whole month."
    In this interview, Will explains how his life was radically changed by
Narconon, a 100% drug-free drug rehabilitation center, after all the hardships
and crushing failures he had faced: " ... If it wasn't for the staff here,
seeing the good and the potential in me, I'd probably be dead right now ... ."
    Eager to share his accomplishment of kicking crystal meth, Will tells his
story in a video entitled "Dying Addict Finds Crystal Meth Treatment." The
success of this video has been beyond expectations with over 118,000 views on
the broadcasting site YouTube.
    The effectiveness of the Narconon(R) drug rehabilitation program is
reflected on a worldwide scale, with over 100 centers around the world. Its
unique 100% natural and drug-free methods have helped thousands of individuals
to overcome their drug addiction and live a drug-free life. If someone you
know and care for is afflicted with an addiction, do not hesitate to contact
