Treatment for Alcohol Abuse, Addiction, Dependence and Withdrawal
Alcohol addiction and dependency may be more than a behavioral or spiritual affliction. There may be very real physiological reasons that have eluded detection that are the powerful precipitators to relapse.
Bring us your most constitutionally incapable of recovery alcoholic. And we will bring you the science of how to recover and turn the hopeless into the next singer of our praises. There are physiological reasons why a person craves alcohol. For some it is abating anxiety. For others, it is a low-blood sugar craving. For yet others, what was once a social escape became a dependence that has basically stripped their brain of fundamental nutrients and left them a confused wet-brained mess.
Our alcohol treatment center provides the most comprehensive health restoration program in the world. We aim to apply our knowledge of neurochemistry to normalize the addictive biochemistry as it relates to alcohol use. There is no other addiction treatment program designed to do what ours does, anywhere else. In fact, many international guests come seeking this level of addiction treatment simply because our program is not found elsewhere.
We use lab testing to discover physiological reasons for alcohol use, and we tailor each guest’s program so that the deficiencies which testing reveals can be corrected using non-invasive, drug-free modalities. Testing also isolates neurotoxic materials that can be cleansed from the body. Toxic body burden of things like heavy metals can lead to the anxious-addicted type of alcoholic, which often is the most difficult to treat.
Many alcohol recovery programs base their treatment upon the AA philosophy, yet lack any awareness of how sugar and other things create the blood sugar roller-coaster that can lead to a hypoglycemic alcohol addicted physiology. In fact, many AA programs unwittingly foster the addictive biochemistry of this type of disposition with the availability of sugars and coffee. We do provide access to meetings and support sponsorship. We do not however allow for the sugars and other mechanisms of an addictive biochemistry to influence our treatment and we provide a very deliberate regimen of diet and neurotransmitter balancing supplements and techniques so that the person can feel a real palpable distance from their addiction, rather than just feeding the same addictive physiology in other ways. Though we are not 12-step based, the combination of 12-step models and addressing the physiology behind alcohol addiction can be a very potent combinations. The absence of these physiological components in AA bear on their relapse rates. Alcoholics anonymous founder Bill Wilson was a large proponent of niacin, as he found success in his “most hopeless cases”, including alleviating his own depression and anxiety that abstinence from alcohol alone had not. What he found was that the results were “nothing short of amazing.”
Yet, Wilson’s own doctors, who were former alcoholics, rejected him. They told Wilson that he “was not a licensed physician and thus had no business extolling the virtues of vitamin therapy.” And despite the fact that he spent the last 11 years of his life further researching and supporting niacin, this information had been all but forgotten. He even wrote long AA pamphlets regarding his observations that most have never even heard of.
We have preserved not only this information, but vastly more revelations about physiological dependence and how to create lasting change without being either a chronic relapser or the notorious dry drunk that you probably liked more when they he or she were drunk.
After many years of alcohol abuse, a person is going to have to implement specific changes to ensure a safe and successful, healthy path to recovery. Physical factors, as well as emotional and spiritual matters, all carry important roles in carving out an alcohol-free lifestyle.
Choosing an alcohol treatment program is a significant and life-changing event. Choosing one that works and really gets to the heart of why a person is really using is unprecedented. To find out more about how our program can help you achieve your recovery goals, we invite you to call for more information while you are in the decision making phase of recovery planning. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you in any way we can. We are a world authority in creating healthy neurochemistry and delivering psychotherapeutic support to unravel the damages of this debilitating affliction.
Treatment for Medication Dependence
Many facilities increase people’s antidepressants, offer minimal counseling and provide poor diets. Our program for antidepressant withdrawal specializes in tapering people from antidepressants at a rate that they can endure.
There are reasons why people get medicated. Yet many of those reasons are medical, dietary, neurotoxicity, situational, psychological and a myriad of other reasons. We commit to discover and correct the real reasons for imbalance.
Our antipsychotic withdrawal program is the only one of its kind in the world. This is a complicated path that often includes genetic considerations. We aim at stabilizing the neurochemistry with natural substances.
Often, deep detoxification to remove accumulated environmental neurotoxins is instrumental in this process. The goal in these cases is to assist the individual in having the least amount of side-effect-producing medication while still enjoying the highest quality of life and functioning. Whether that is means a completely medication free stay during the duration of treatment is on a case by case basis.
Persons with anxiety that are drawn to alcohol or benzodiazepines may have underpinnings of a neurotoxic burden that can overstimulate the nervous system.
Our methods of Benzodiazepine Withdrawal help include careful tapering protocols, cleansing of neurotoxins that have poisoned brain functioning, counseling and many holistic therapies. Since many of our residents were formerly damaged in the name of medical help, we encourage you to watch the benzodiazepine success videos or read our success stories to earn our trust.
We successfully manage protracted withdrawal and have many 20+ year benzodiazepine testimonials. Alternative to Meds Center is not a rapid benzodiazepine withdrawal facility and we are highly opposed to this approach because of the many, many damages to person’s lives that we have seen this produce.
