Drug/alcohol abusers quit drugs and alcohol. Addicts do not. Get an accurate diagnosis.

 

When abusive drug/alcohol use creates consequences, the abuser quits because it is not relieving pain. The addict keeps abusing because of loss of control and cravings. This information will give you a start on how to treat the problem.

Love and Peace,

Addiction Recovery Programs should have integrity.

 

When choosing a recovery program, look for an 'abstinence from all mood-altering chemicals' rule. Otherwise, it is not an abstinence recovery program.

When properly directed, the family of the addict/alcoholic creates acceptance instead of resistance.

 

The family is the motivator. The secret to successful addiction recovery is to motivate the addict/alcoholic to desire help.

Family Treatment for drug and alcohol addiction can do wonders.

 

The family is the best source of leverage for motivating an addict alcoholic to treatment. What is more unmanageable that breaking your loved one's heart?

The number one mistake to avoid if getting sober and clean.

 

The biggest mistake I've seen people make when trying to get sober and clean is trying to get their life in order before entering treatment. The correct order is to get sober and clean and then you can get your life in order.

Non-Medicated Substance Abuse Treatment.

 

A simple spiritual connection and a willingness to make up for the harm done to self and others is all that is needed to get and stay sober and clean.

This is what I do. This is what I teach!

Addiction has a biological, psychological, social and spiritual basis.

 

When all four are treated, the addict/alcoholic becomes a part of society that he or she rejected. There is a peace that far surpasses the 'high' falsely acquired, and eventually non-existent, obtained from using mood-altering, mood destroying substances.

Getting sober and clean is a process.

 

Sometimes it is a matter of not using for a while so you can see the benefits and also the harm done to self and others. Then you can have hope.

Demi Lovato makes first public statement since apparent overdose: 'I will keep fighting'

Great exposure. This can inspire many. I wish more people in the limelight would come out.

The key to long term recovery is surrender, not fighting.  God bless Demi!
