Enablers are in alcoholic/addictive families and in politics. Enabling is For the Benefit of the Enabler.

Whether the enabler is a parent protecting a child or a politician protecting his money and power, the enabler benefits. The parent sleeps better when the child is out of jail so he pays the fine. The politician enables the weak, not just the one who deserves help, and prevents the consequences from occurring. The consequences are how the addict learns. So the addict does not learn.

Methadone has been a nightmare. Drug free means drug free.

Drug/alcohol treatment is simple. The family has the control if they learn to use it properly. Get a therapist who knows addictions, has been there and can help you become the therapist.

Addiction Treatment is Simple.

Do not complicate addiction treatment with drugs and isolation from consequences. Family is the key to good recovery. Get them involved. They are the leverage.

It takes a skilled and spiritual therapist to intervene in the addiction disease. It is evil!!!

Addiction is Highly Treatable.

Addiction is highly treatable if treatment keeps it simple and do not compiicate the process with drugs and isolation from consequences. Family is the key to good recovery. Get them involved. They are the leverage.

Substitute drugs for drugs is ridiculous!!!

There is no valid evidence to prove that suboxone, vivitrol or methadone works. 

Methadone has been a nightmare. Drug free means drug free.

Do you want your son to be drug affected for the rest of his life or do you want to see him grow and prosper?

After 50 years in addictions tx, I am sure that I can't treat heroin with a drug.

Abstinence is the beginning. Total abstinence! 

The problem is Bio  Psycho  Social and Spiritual.

The psychological, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual damage has to be repaired. The conscience must be restored. The family has to be reconstructed. Amends, amends and more and are in order.

28 Million for Drug Treatment that Government sanctions?!

Problem:   The government has not been able to arrest it. Why more money for ineffective treatment?

Solution:  Synthesize efforts with input from recovering people for over one quarter of a century. There are thousands of them. Add counselors, CAPs, M.D.s therapists psychiatrists, law makers, law enforcers, valid researchers who have been in the addictions field for twenty five years and KNOW addiction or are brilliant and unbiased and come up with a solution.  Have all attend AA, NA and Al-Anon for three months.

Then ACT EFFECTIVELY?

Think through choice of a Addictions Treatment Facility!

The addict and/or family is in crisis when the addict is going into treatment. I suggest using a level headed, logical family member to choose the right placement. Negotiate for the right facility.

Addiction Treatment Must be Negotiable!!!

The addict and/or family is in crisis when the addict is going into treatment. I suggest using a level headed, logical family member to choose the right placement. Negotiate for the right facility.

 

You must choose a treatment facility that is honorable, affordable and operates within the realm of integrity. Remember, the treatment center is first a business. Choose wisely. Use one that is referred by someone who has been there and will vouch for the service.

There needs to be respect and yet and ego balancing process. Spas and saunas treatment foster a sense of entitlement.  This is detrimental to the addict/alcoholic who needs to become humble and responsible.

Call me for more. I insist on treatment that is effective and teaches lifelong abstinent tools. These take years to master, not 30 days.  The addict must practice these in the mainstream of society, not a laboratory setting where he or she is protected from the consequences and triggers.

 

Whoever you protect you weaken!!!

Addiction Therapists should be made of stern stuff!!!

We must do no harm. We can't be part of a system that over medicates, kicks addicts from treatment because of insurance stopping and before they are ready, only to go back to their ghetto and die. We must take a stand. Kids are dying out there.

DO NO HARM!!!
