Inpatient treatment for addiction does not get people sober and clean. There is much work ahead.

Recovery takes much spiritual, mental, emotional and physical work. Stability takes a few years in the mainstream of society where triggers can and must be neutralized.

Everyone seems to have an opinion about addiction based on limited experience with a late stage alcoholic.

#addiction Addiction is highly treatable. Politics interfere with effective treatment.

Many times, greed and fears overtake the providers. There are billions of dollars in addiction treatment. There is peace and purposefulness in doing it right.

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.

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.

Effective Substance Treatment.

Treatment should skillfully deflate egos and be done by those who have 'been there.'

When you own your own sickness, you can impact others addicts who will then trust the direction.

The Real Deal: Affordable Addiction Recovery that Works?

The truth: Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a spiritual malady. It is bio-psycho-social and spiritual.

The solution: a spiritual conversion, not necessarily religious, that entails 12 step and my IOP to catch the relapse signs and correct them.

It involves a bio-psycho-social and spiritual solution from those who have "been there." We involve the family because we need you!!!

Effective Treatment for DrugAlcohol Addiction.

     Good treatment is best administered by thoes who have 'been there' and know the traps Even more, these people know how to solve the problems that arise the first year or two without medication or other forms of blocking feelings and reality.

     Addicts need to cope with feelings and not regress to anesthetizing them. Anger, fear, remorse and old hurts surface and must be resolved. Those who are sober and clean for years have done this and teach it.

     We need to address this. The addictions field is being monopolized by corporations with little knowledge of effective treatment. AND, it is killing us!!!

Let's make America sober again!

The first step is to put a drug czar in office who has a good education on addiction.  Next, we need to get a think tank going to involve government, recovering people, healthcare professionals and lay men to synthesize a theory and treatment protocol.
