  • 1. Eating Disorder Treatment in Orange County, Southern California By: Dion Silva First step towards addiction recovery is detox! There are various factors which lead to getting a person addicted the various drugs and alcohol. But only one factor leads them to get out of this mess and that crucial factor is the willingness or longing to quitting this addiction and to lead a sober life. Many people do so for their loved ones, many do so for themselves. Whatever the reason be, to face the uneasiness for denying body the pleasure it is used to may cause tremendous pain in body, requires lot of courage and a very strong will power. It needs lot of determination and courage to put your body through the painful experience. Apart from these personal factors, external factors such as expert guidance, well equipped rehab, personal monitoring during recovery, individualistic recovery treatment, following approach during recovery and the most important to reform the thinking pattern of the newly sober to refrain from going back the addiction are the basic and most significant things one should look for while finding a right rehab. Nowadays most of the rehabs follow these guidelines and offer compassionate and sophisticated recovery treatment to their clients. Right after admitting into a rehab an evaluation process, to measure the intensity of the addiction is carried out. Based on the outcome of these evaluations, the medical experts draft a personalized recovery plan for the addicts. The very fundamental and primary goal of those professionals is to get the toxins out of the body, so that the drugs can be effective in fighting against the cravings and foreign substances. Getting the toxins out of the body is called detoxification. As the name suggest, it detoxifies the body. This term does not limit itself to removal of toxins from human body, but it may also include the withdrawal period, caused due to denying the body the usual substance, to which the body is addicted.
  • 2. In conventional medicine, detoxification can be achieved by decontamination of poison ingestion and the use of antidotes as well as techniques such as dialysis and (in a very limited number of cases) Chelating therapy. Many alternative medicine practitioners promote various other types of taking the poisonous substances out such as "diet detoxification," but there is little evidence that such methods have any health benefits. Most of the rehabs follow sophisticated drug detox methods. Alcohol detox gives a proper platform to impart recovery treatment. These methods help in getting the body cleansed and conditions it for a better sustainability. Substance abuse: a self imposed slavery to drugs! Many times I am forced to think, what on the earth makes people get addicted to drugs or alcohol? Always have failed to get the answer to this question, until I happened to read an article on the internet about factors leading to addictions! There were many reasons leading to addiction, all of them were valid. One reason caught my attention the most was as follows: many of us get addicted to get emotional strength. This point got my thought process rotating. Why does one have to depend on the external factors to be strong? Is it not sufficient to have a strong mind and acknowledging it? All my questions may be true in their own respect. Later, with some extensive research, it was clear to me, that very few of us have the ability to know and realized how strong our own mind is and how well we ourselves can control the mind to make it our slave. Though it sounds very tough and hard, on the contrary it is the most easily learned art. One should know when to let it go scot free and when to hold it back. There is one apt proverb in literature, it says, a will can move mountains! Do you think it is physically possible for person to move mountains? The answer might be “NO”. But with power of will paired with efforts people can reach at the top of the mountain. So power of mind is the mightiest tool humans have, we should acknowledge it and make accurate use of it. But very few of us realize this principle. Those who realize it, move far ahead in their lives. For those who do not understand it, think life as hard task, and seek help outside self, get easily addicted to substances to gain a feeling of being well. Ativan is one drug used for getting a feeling of relieved from anxiety. It has a very soothing and calming effect. This drug is used in psychological therapies by the professionals. It is also recommended by the practicing medical experts for a shorter term. It has a characteristic to make the user habituated to this drug. Similarly people use cocaine for getting the euphoric feeling. Ativan addiction needs careful and expert medical care in the treatment which begins with detoxification. Cocaine addiction affects the central nervous system. The basic difference between these addictions is the earlier one is a prescribed drug whereas the other one is addictive.
  • 3. Compassionate healing words work wonders! The other day one of my closest friends had a fight with her partner. She came to me and shared her perspective. The reason of the fight was really petty but it created havoc in her life. We decided to call her husband as well to know his version of the story. All four of us sat down and had a prolonged discussion. In the end, the matter was solved between them. Our mind plays a huge role in perceiving things around us. What we feel and the vibes we get from those things determine how we respond to them. Many small things can turn into a big brawl due to perception. One of the great authors has mentioned a story of a monkey to describe how the mind can manipulate circumstances around us and then change the entire look out towards those things. It happens so; a monkey gets trapped in a tower and gets locked into a room accidentally. After trying out various ways to get out, it fails. There are only two windows in that room. It thinks that, it is eternal hell with no way to get out. Numerous tries in vain and it looks around. After inspecting the room, looking out of the window it realizes that, things, it could see from the window were not that bad. As the matter of fact, the monkey started to enjoy the view, the peace inside the room etc. it’s changed perception towards the eternal hell. In a similar way, there are many ways to look at things people do not realize. It is the duty of the loved ones to make them realize and lessen their burden. Especially for those, whose loved ones have been admitted into rehabs. Changing the perspective towards life changes everything! The psychologists and medical therapists have recommended certain rules for conversing with the loved ones in rehab they guide the families about what to say to an addict. They recommend that certain topics which are pertaining to their past or which might remind them of the addiction should be avoided. Similarly, certain things should be told to them to change their perspective towards life. Psychologists educate families about what to say to an alcoholic. Tensions from past should be buried and the sober life should be embraced with a brand new perspective. Kind words can make a whole lot of difference!
