Addiction: The Missing Piece

Little did I know until very recently, that there is a chemical dependency treatment approach that provides a genuine opportunity to share in a groundbreaking (though not entirely new) discovery. The discovery to which I refer, is that healing addiction doesn’t only happen by learning tools offered in traditional treatment, but that there is another path one can choose to follow. The path to which I refer, lays, rather than just learning how to prevent relapse, in repairing the physiological damage that has already been caused by one’s addiction!

Little did I know until very recently, that there is a chemical dependency treatment approach that provides a genuine opportunity to share in a groundbreaking (though not entirely new) discovery.  The discovery to which I refer, is that healing addiction doesn’t only happen by learning tools offered in traditional treatment, but that there is another path one can choose to follow.  The path to which I refer, lays in rather than just learning how to prevent relapse, but in repairing the physiological damage that has already been caused by ones addiction!  This can be accomplished through many different kinds of blood and other tests to determine various forms of contaminants (environmental and otherwise) that have been causing cravings and urges to use mood-altering substances.

The program to which I refer is a Bio-Molecular Science based program.  It is a program that provides repair of physiological damage resulting from addiction through primarily nutritional repair.  Many of the body’s vitamins and nutrients are lost due to the abuse the body undergoes during alcohol and other drug addiction.  To me, this just stands to reason.  But, to be able to actually witness the astonishing, positive changes that clients undergo physiologically as a result of their participation in this program, is truly a privilege.  It’s a privilege I’d never expected to be granted during my many year career as a helping professional.

To say that good and stable health can be restored without first repairing existing damage, would be no different than to say that a stint should be added to a blood vessel near the heart without, first, removing the blood clot that caused the need for the surgery.  It is also important to understand that the disease of addiction cannot be “talked away” with talk therapy anymore than the disease of diabetes can be “talked away” with talk therapy. 

Just as a human body suffering from diabetes must have insulin in order to reach a state of good health and repair, a human body that is suffering from addiction/alcoholism must have proper vitamins and nutrients specific to it’s physiological damage, in order to reach a state of good health and repair.  Once the human body has reached a state of good health and repair, complete and lasting recovery will naturally result.
