Using a Sober Companion for Accountability

 

accountability

Have you been told that accountability is the key to your recovery, all the while watching hypocrisy rear its ugly head? Well, accountability is an extremely important step in recovery, but hypocrisy always runs rampant in the addictions industry and recovery community to a point where it can cripple a recovering drug addict’s growth in recovery.

So let’s begin with accountability and discuss why this is such an important step in recovery and then we will use an example of an extremely important person in the sports industry that preached accountability for four decades during his career but when it was time for him to take accountability he ran the other way. Accountability is basically owning the negative actions and consequences that go hand-in-hand with an active addiction. Taking accountability is looking inward for solutions to improving your lifestyle instead of looking outward to blame others for your misfortunes. When we are trying to get clean and sober and stay clean and sober we waste so much time blaming others instead of looking inward at the real person to blame and beginning a long tedious process towards sobriety and recovery.

The sooner we acknowledge that we are to blame for our path of destruction during our drug use, the sooner we can begin to dig ourselves out properly. We really have to watch out for hypocrisy when we are looking upward to those who have succeeded in getting clean and sober and staying clean and sober because if we are not careful, hypocrisy can lead us right back into an active addiction.

I want to use an example of a Major League Baseball coach who refused to take accountability for his actions. Coach Tony La Russa, who’s major league baseball career spanned over multiple decades, always preached accountability and was a bit of a hard nosed authoritarian when it came to following the rules and discipline. This is why the baseball community was completely shocked by the video that surfaced last week of a drunken Tony La Russa slurring while telling a local police officer that he should “know who he was” and that he was “one of those Hall of Famer guys”.

First of all, the officer did not appear to know who Tony La Russa was and was more concerned with how intoxicated this man was behind the steering wheel of an automobile. But more importantly, Tony La Russa, who was a strict authoritarian, was trying to convince the police officer to let him go and convince him that he did nothing wrong and to take his Hall of Fame status as reason to do so. Coach Tony La Russa was not in recovery and has never been in trouble with the law, however, his incident is a true example of not taking accountability for an issue that you caused that could have had a tragic ending for La Russa or an innocent driver on the roads that evening.

Had he had a sober coach, or a recovery coach or even a sober companion he would be working on accountability and staying sober. The drug and alcohol treatment industry would have held him accountable and taught him accountability.

Accountability is one of the most important pieces to getting clean and sober and staying clean and sober and we discuss accountability here at The Addictions Coach and the Addictions Academy.

Addiction Enabled: 3 Signs you are Coddling Your Loved One To Death Part 3

Addiction Enabled:

3 Signs you are Coddling Your Loved One To Death

Part 3

Welcome to Part 3 in our 3 part series on how to know if you are enabling or loving your addict to death.

Sign 3 – You both wear a mask of denial:

coddling

Denial is the enemy of the truth. You KNOW that what I’ve talked about is a spittin’ image of your current situation, but you don’t like to admit it. You’d rather feel better and hope that your loved one will eventually just straighten out. Well, when they are in denial about their problem, as with most addicts and alcoholics in the thick of it are, and you are as well, this brings nothing but a negative outcome on both ends.

Imagine: Your daughter asks you for “food money” and you give her $100 and tell her to be careful, the rest of the money is for emergencies only. This in itself can be an emergency situation. She leaves, you worry yourself to death, wondering if she will live for another night, because you know what she’s doing, and you just supported the hell out of it. You are officially enabling her to death. Every time she goes out, it’s with your money. IF she comes back, it’s to your home. She has no worries except how easily she can get her next fix, paid for by you. You love her and want the best for her.

She is addicted to drugs and you are addicted to her.

My point is with all this: Not only to watch your own back but look out for your loved ones too. Don’t feed their addiction, don’t coddle them, don’t accept lies and excuses. Don’t feed their toxicity with more toxicity. Give them a very short time to get their shit together and get help, or make them leave your house. The results of tough love can be far less painful than the eulogy you may be writing if you don’t stop giving into someone else’s addiction.

If you want help and peace of mind, please call us at 800 706 0318 ext 1 and let us help you deal with the issues. You are not alone.

Why are clients constantly not engaged in clinical addiction treatment settings and what can you do to stop them from leaving?

Why are clients constantly not engaged in clinical addiction treatment settings and what can you do to stop them from leaving?

addiction treatment

As an addiction treatment center owner or marketing professional you get tired of all the work you do to get the clients into an addiction treatment And then they leave a few days into treatment or before treatment is finished. The problem with this is compounded. First, as a treatment center that accepts insurance this affects your insurance rate, the higher the AMA/APA rate the worse your insurance premiums and reimbursements will be. Second, this affects the clients currently in treatment and when one client leaves treatment against medical advice multiple clients will leave with them. This makes your AMA/APA rate worse and causes a lot of undue stress for your addictions counselors and addiction staff.

Third, when a client decides to leave against medical advice everyone is needed to triage that client. This causes mass chaos within the addiction treatment facility and it causes your staff to be pulled in multiple directions while other clients are not given the proper services. In addition your staff can get compassion fatigue and burn out with constantly dealing with negativity of one or multiple clients leaving. A lot of the AMA APAs occur on a Friday night or Saturday or Sunday when you do not have a primary staff on duty and you have the weekend staff or the BT team. Clients generally will try to do more things they should not be doing like smoking, shopping, gambling, having sex etc. on the weekends because you’re generally have less staff and you have staff that is spread thin. In addition, usually do not have multiple addictions counselors available to triage an AMA/APA or create an AMA block.

The addictions Academy developed the only AMA/APA block training class for all of your staff that is effective. Most of our Addictions treatment centers that have taken the AMA/APA block class have reported a 30% decrease in AMA and APA is within the first 30 days. Our class is available for your entire staff which we recommend you train or individually online at a self study online video series.

Recovery Coaches-Why They Can Make a Difference

Recovery Coaches-Why They Can Make A Difference

It is estimated that approximately 1 in 10 Americans over the age of twelve has a substance addiction. That’s almost 25 million people. Due to the isolating nature of this disease, you may feel all alone in your problem, and not know where to turn. But today, there are many options for recovery. Reaching out for help isn’t always easy, but you are worth it.

For many people, rehab is the best way to get sober and start fresh. It puts you in a safe environment and helps you develop new coping skills and healthier habits. Unfortunately, a large percentage of people leaving treatment will relapse within the first few weeks and months. This is why often an IOP program is recommended after rehab.  This however is not always an option for some and others do not want to attend.  So what are the alternatives.  The  bottom line is that relapse is a very real threat for anyone leaving treatment.  So what are some viable ways that  relapse can be prevented?

The Importance Of Ongoing Support

The reality is that most treatment centers fail to address the underlying causes of addiction. Not only that, but your average 28 day program is simply not long enough to undo the damage of years of habitual drug or alcohol use. Defense and coping mechanisms are powerful forces that can take months of intensive therapy to address, and cravings may persist for a long time. External and internal stressors can contribute to relapse. Once you are done with treatment, you are on your own.

For some people, 12 step programs offer the support needed to maintain sobriety, but they don’t work for everyone. What is often needed in early sobriety is an added level of support to help you work through the challenges as they come up, helping you to master the tools and strategies needed to live a life free from addiction.

How Recovery Coaching Can Help

Perhaps you have heard of recovery coaches, and perhaps not. Contrary to popular belief, they aren’t just for the rich and famous. A recovery coach is someone who helps you navigate the early recovery period so that you can stay sober. They can also be useful in times of stress when you are feeling shaky and uncertain about your ability to stay sober.

Dr. Cali Estes is a recovery coach with years of experience helping people maintain their sobriety and thrive in their recovery.

“Recovery Coaches are vital in supplementing the poor aftercare that most treatment centers offer to clients. They offer a client-centered accountability that is based on professional experience.”

Treatment centers often provide “aftercare” programs for those that complete their programs. Generally, they consist of a weekly topical group, but not much more. While these groups offer some level of support and can help keep you connected to peers, they simply aren’t comprehensive enough to be of much help.

The Benefits Of Individualized Recovery Coaching

While there are many similarities among those who are addicted, people are still individuals with individual needs. Treatment programs, support groups and other programs are not geared to the individual. They are often a one-size-fits-all approach that is lacking in many areas. Recovery coaching provides that individual attention, and allows the coach to really get to know their client, and design an approach that is unique to the person.

Dr. Cali Estes combines her professional experience in clinical psychology, addiction treatment, personal coaching and wellness coaching to provide a high level of support. She states “One of the keys to the success of Recovery Coaches is that they offer confidential accountability to anyone in early sobriety. They also offer a viable alternative to anyone who is not interested in 12 step recovery.”

While 12 step meetings are great for some people, they aren’t for everyone. Recovery Coaching provides a viable alternative to other recovery services that may not have worked for you in the past.

One of the major advantages of Recovery Coaches is that they can give you support when you need it. Things come up in real life that you need solutions for in the moment. These are teaching opportunities and coaching allows you to get through these rough spots while at the same time learning  coping skills and techniques that you can draw on in the future.

A Recovery Coach with a background in behavior and cognitive psychology as well as addiction treatment offers you even more. Many programs stop at treating the addiction, but this isn’t enough. Most people have other issues that are keeping them stuck in the same patterns. Underlying issues to addiction may include depression, anxiety, trauma, attachment and self-esteem issues. These are problems that don’t go away on their own. Help is needed to work through these problems so long-term healing can take place.

In addition, a Recovery Coach can help you learn how to build a lifestyle that promotes health and overall well-being. It’s not just about quitting the alcohol or drugs. While that is certainly a good start, it’s not enough. You want to live a life that you love, that feels good and that allows you to grow and thrive. You want to enjoy your life! That is where coaching comes in.

LA Times Article On Price Overdose

Prince overdosed on a powerful painkiller that federal health authorities say is a public health threat. One addiction specialist calls it “heroin on steroids.”

The pop star died of a self-administered accidental overdose of fentanyl, according to the Midwest Medical Examiner’s Office in Minnesota. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is between 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

How Prince obtained the prescription painkiller is not known. His April 21 death at age 57 in his Minneapolis-area compound remains under investigation by the Carver County Sheriff’s Office, which had no comment Thursday.

Fentanyl was first introduced under the name Sublimaze in the 1960s, and was initially administered via an intravenous anesthetic. Nowadays, patients can get a fentanyl dosage via tablets, patches, and injections — or even lozenges referred to as “lollipops.”

The drug is often prescribed for patients dealing with chronic pain from late-stage cancer, and is also used as an anesthetic during heart surgery.

“Think of fentanyl as legal heroin on steroids,” said Dr. Cali Estes, a private addiction coach. “The way most people describe [the high is like] lying in a bed of roses, having sex and eating a cheeseburger at the same time.”

Doctors have to undergo special training required by the Food and Drug Administration in order to prescribe it, said Dr. Matt Torrington, addiction medicine research physician who has worked at the UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs. “One reason it’s so good is that it’s incredibly powerful in small doses,” he said.

In media interviews, close associates of Prince have said the performer was constantly in pain from years of athletic performances on stage. Just before he died, efforts had been initiated to get him into an addiction rehabilitation program.

Prince’s cause of death arguably makes him the opioid abuse epidemic’s most famous victim, along with actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died in February 2014 after overdosing on heroin and other drugs.

“We need to see the Prince in all of us. We need to see the vulnerability. We’re all vulnerable here,” explained Dr. David Kessler, a former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. “It’s a wake-up call for how we view these drugs.”

Because of its heroin-like effect, fentanyl has recently become one of the most popular illicit street drugs. In a March 2015 nationwide alert, the Drug Enforcement Administration identified fentanyl as a public health threat after more than 700 fentanyl-related overdose deaths were reported between late 2013 and throughout 2014.

In 2014 alone, the National Forensic Laboratory Information System found there were 1,245 fentanyl drug seizures in Ohio alone; Minnesota was not among the top 10 states with the most seizures.

“It’s become especially popular in the last six months,” Estes said. “On the black market, fentanyl is cheaper than heroin.”

Kessler said it’s a mistake to separate people using opioids legally from those who are getting them illegally. People start, he said, because they are told the drugs are going to help, but often aren’t advised about the long-term consequences of addiction.

“The most important thing is not to look at this through a lens of ‘This is bad behavior,’” Kessler said. “We all are susceptible to these medications.”

Questions remain as to how Prince got his drugs. According to an affidavit for a search warrant obtained by the Los Angeles Times, Prince saw a Minneapolis-area doctor, Michael Todd Schulenberg, the day before he died, and Schulenberg was at Prince’s Paisley Park compound to deliver medical test results on the morning the musician was found dead.

The doctor, who specializes in family medicine, had also seen Prince earlier in the month, on April 7, and told investigators he had prescribed medication. The singer was supposed to fill the prescription at Walgreens, although it is unclear from the warrant whether he did.

Prince’s health appeared to be a concern in the days leading up to this death. Attorney William Mauzy told reporters that his client Dr. Howard Kornfeld was contacted by Prince’s representatives, who were seeking help, the day before the singer died. Kornfeld specializes in addiction treatment and runs Recovery Without Walls in Mill Valley, Calif.

Mauzy said that Kornfeld couldn’t clear his schedule and instead had sent his son Andrew Kornfeld to Paisley Park in his place with a small amount of buprenorphine, a drug used in opioid addiction treatment. Andrew Kornfeld had flown to Minneapolis in hopes of encouraging Prince to check himself into the Mill Valley rehabilitation program and that the buprenorphine he was carrying was intended to be turned over to a Minneapolis physician to be administered to the pop star. According to Mauzy, the medication was not administered and was later taken into possession by sheriff’s investigators.

Dr. Kornfeld and his son declined to be interviewed.

According to authorities, Prince was last seen alive at 8

This can be avoided by using an anger management or drug and alcohol sober coach.

You need your head in the game both on and off the field. You need to make sure your image is clean and untainted in the papers or you risk getting cut from the team. You read the paper and see the news of all the professional athletes that are arrested for drugs, alcohol, steroids, hiring prostitutes, gambling and of course excessive partying. You watch as other Professional Football Players get cut from the team, dropped from their sponsorships, divorced and smeared in the headlines. They are using both legal and illegal drugs, taking guns into nightclubs, having affairs, getting involved in domestic violence issues and of course gambling their paychecks away. Some professional football players may retire early to avoid the embarrassment, some end up in jail, some broke living with their parents and of course, some end up dead. Don’t let that be YOU. With all the hard work and dedication you have put into professional football, don’t throw it all away for drugs, alcohol, sex, gambling and guns. Hire us before you make the decision to do something you regret. We are your Addiction Coaches. We come to you, on the field and off.
