Alcohol Tobacco and Drug Addiction Solutions

Integrative Medicine methods can prove to be a powerful healing force to people in recovery from addictions to Alcohol, Tobacco and Drugs.

Integrative medicine has advanced recently but very few of the powerful and healing integrative medicine methods have been made available to those in recovery from drug and alcohol addictions.

Recovery of the whole person – mind, body and spirit is crucial to recovery. This also describes precisely the Integrative Medicine approach to any physical or mental disorder provided by NIHA (National Integrated Health Associates) .

Addictions may be the cause of 90% of prison incarcerations, 50% of psychiatric admissions and 25% of admissions to general medical hospitals, as well as a major factor in the incidence of suicides, murders, vehicular homicides, spouse battering, divorce and other kinds of social and occupational upheaval. When a loved one is suffering from an addiction, the stress of that relationship (codependency) can be at the root of any medical or psychiatric disorder, and this cause of illness is often overlooked by both conventional and non-conventional health care providers.

Generally speaking, when a recovering person or their loved one looks for help, they will find assistance for a recovery of mind and spirit – but not the body. You may even find “energy” treatments like acupuncture, but few resources are available to assist you in the natural regeneration of neurotransmitters like serotonin, or to assist in detoxifying your body from the residual poisons left over from the use of drugs and alcohol.

NIHA offers this missing link in recovery- a recovery of the body. For instance, they offer amino acid precursor therapies to help restore the imbalanced neurotransmitters that may have caused substance abuse in the first place. These amino acid and nutritional therapies can be delivered through nutritional supplements, intravenously and trans-dermally (through the skin).

Drug Abuse Treatment Facility Locator

Substance Abuse Treatment Facility Locator

I am reluctant to give out a link that will provide a listing to all addiction treatment centers because most of them do not get people well. The reason they do not get people well is because they do not treat the person holistically and also heal the brain first which is at the core of the problem.

But here is an addiction treatment locator provided by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration of the US Department of Health and Human Services. Perhaps it will still be of use to someone.

End Your Addiction Now

September 1st, 2009 · No Comments

Dr. Charles Gant’s new book has just been released. I have read it and it is excellent.

Order now at Amazon:
End Your Addiction Now: A Proven Nutritional Supplement Program That Can Set You Free

Here is the write up from the publisher about the book:

Whether it is to alcohol, drugs, smoking, or food, addiction is an overwhelming and destructive force that negatively impacts the lives of those in its grip. While there are programs galore that promise an end to these dependencies, the truth is, far too many “reformed” addicts fall right back into their old habits.


Because powerful biochemical factors override the psychological will to quit. End Your Addiction Now is a unique book that not only explores the real cause of this recurring problem, but also offers a proven biochemical approach that can break addiction once and for all.

Written in easy-to-understand language, End Your Addiction Now is based upon the extensive research and medical practice of Dr. Charles Gant and other pioneers in the field of orthomolecular medicine. It both guides readers to physicians and facilities that support a biochemical approach to the treatment of substance-use disorders, and provides step-by-step directions for those who want to quit their addictions on their own.

Holistic Addiction Treatment

June 7th, 2009 · No Comments

John Giordano is president and co-founder of G&G Holistic Addiction Treatment Center in North Miami, Florida. I saw him speak at the “Brain Repair” conference in Sacramento. He is one of the most entertaining speakers I have heard in a long time.

His life is the stuff of movies, from a heroin-dealing father in the Bronx, a childhood in gangs, a karate champion by age 17, and success as a businessman which led to drugs, alcohol, and disaster.

After successful intervention by those who still cared for him and his own unquenchable desire for self mastery and learning led him to sobriety, drug recovery, and the creation of one of the premier addiction treatment programs on the East Coast.

His center mixes conventional medicine with innovative alternative medicine methods to heal the body, mind, and spirit.

Nutrition and Behavior

Food and Behavior Nutrition Effects Behavior

Many research reports show that good nutrition has a positive effect on behavior. This include better school performance and preventing probationers from re-offending.

At the conference I attended on “Brain Repair”, Barbara Reed Stitt, PhD, author of the book “Food and Behavior“, received the Abram Hoffer Lifetime Achievement Award for her pioneering work in the use of food to improve behavior. (The book is a must read for all parents, educators and psychologists.)

Like Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, the namesake of this award who bucked conventional wisdom to focus on the biochemical basis of addictive and mental health disorders, Dr. Stitt was willing to stand out among her peers doing what worked even if it wasn’t the standard of care in her day.

As Chief Probation Officer in Cuyahog Falls, Ohio, she fine tuned her program for seven years until courageously revising the modus operandi of the Probation Department, beginning in 1970.

An astute medical detective, Dr. Stitt looked for hypoglycemia, food allergies, adrenal gland fatigue, heavy metal accumulation, and B vitamin and other nutritional deficiencies. She knew these five problems led to distortions of thinking and decision-making. When these were addressed the results were astounding: Even though it is common for over half of arrestees to be drug dependent and for recidivism rates to be as high as 77%, over 80% of her probationers stayed out of the criminal justice system during the last twelve years of her work in Ohio.

California Alcohol and Drug Programs

May 31st, 2009 · No Comments

nutrition for addiction recovery Renee Zito spoke at the “Brain Repair” conference I attended last month. She was appointed Director of the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on February 22, 2007. In her role, she leads the State’s alcohol and drug treatment and prevention efforts. She oversees approximately 300 employees in the Department and is responsible for an annual budget of $600 million, which includes funding for both the federal Substance abuse Prevention and Treatment (SAPT) Block Grant and the Drug Medi-Cal program.

Ms. Zito supports successful drug court programs such as the Sacramento Drug Court Program which has saved the taxpayers millions of dollars. Instead of pharmaceutical bandaids, Sacramento actually cures the core reason for the drug addiction with the emphasis on brain repair with specific nutritional supplements.
