One memorable patient we had

If you did not know, we are also a few doctors that used to be in a rehabilitation clinic and we had quite a few patients throughout our years being doctors. We had one patient that really stood out though. It was Mike’s fifth year of being a rehab doctor and he had a patient named Thomas. Thomas had One of the worst alcohol abuse cases that Mike had ever seen in his life. Thomas was at the brink of death, just holding on by a thread. It is a miracle that he was still alive and made it to rehab. There was one night when he got to .8  BAC and had a seizure and fell down the stairs. Mike was surprised that he was alive after getting his blood alcohol content to nearly 80%. That is completely unheard of. Most people die when they hit about 50 or 60% and it is amazing that he did not get I’ll call poisoning.

Thomas came into rehab on his own free will and nobody had forced him or encouraged him to go. All his family had given up on him and sincerely thought to that he was not going to make it until one day he saw one of his friends die from the exact same thing and it completely changed his mind. He was still severely addicted to the alcohol though, so he wasn’t able to Completely shut out the addiction without help.  So Mike helped him and Thomas did get better. It was a long hard road but they both made it happen together and that was the most memorable patient that Mike ever had. They both created such a good relationship back to that moment and they are friends to this day. Thomas has come so far in the past 20 years since his alcohol abuse and he has been sober for 23 years now.   He now rests in the nice city of  Sacramento and owns a pool building company called  is able to become very successful from the time he was in need.

We will always remember Thomas because he is one of the few that was able to complete rehabilitation act or just his first time. He was ready to go on his own but the physical addiction was still there and all he needed was Mike’s help to guide him along the way.

Thomas also speaks out too many AAA groups and kids around the nation about alcohol abuse and the negative effects of it. He has dedicated part of his life to being an activist of helping stop alcohol abuse in today’s society. He has really become a productive member of society since he was  addicted to alcohol nearly 20 years ago.

Go support him and his website because he has been able to give us the inspiration to write this post about him. This post is completely dedicated to Thomas and his transformation into becoming a great person.

This video below that we are sharing explains a case that is similar to Thomases in the road to recovery. So definitely make sure to look at it and you’ll get some great information off of this video.

Aversion therapy

Hello everybody and in this post we are going to be talking about a subject that is called diversion therapy. Aversion therapy is where they basically poison your system so that you get sick every time you drink alcohol. This is the most effective way to treat alcoholism. This treatment is very  rough though and it is only used as a last resort.

Type of treatment is perfect for you if you are the type of person that has gone to rehab multiple times and it has not yet worked. This is a very dangerous treatment and it’s not something to be messed with and you should only use it if you absolutely need to. If things go wrong then you can die because they do put poisonous chemicals in your body mixed with the alcohol.

Is very horrible, they make you drink until you are ready to die and then they make you drink more. They make you drink until you puke and then drink even more alcohol. They make you drink so much that you will never want to drink again. The alcohol is rigged with special chemicals that your body  can’t react to. The whole idea of it is to have your body start thinking that any alcohol you drink will have poison in it and be poisonous to your body. They make you drink like that for days until your body starts remembering alcohol is something that makes you sick every time.

After this treatment  anytime you drink alcohol from here on out your body is going to have a terrible reaction and you are going to get incredibly sick. This is the harsh way to get rid of your  alcoholism problem, but it works every single time. There are very few cases where this type of treatment does not work for people. Some people it will not work for though, these are the types of people that are most likely going to die from their addictions because nothing is going to save them.

We would definitely not recommend this type of treatment over rehabilitation. You should always try to go through rehab multiple times before you try a version therapy. Some people cannot emotionally recover from this type of treatment and it is best that they stay away from it. That is all we had to share with you today and we hope that you liked the info we gave you.

Alcohol side effects

The chemistry of it is not meant to work with your liver. The organ that takes the most damage is in fact your liver and it is not a good thing. If you are a heavy alcohol use her then  you risk a good chance of getting liver failure when you are older. Liver failure is not good because if it happens you will die. The only way you can get saved is if you get a liver transplant. And if you ruin your liver early on you might have to get a transplant before your liver fails so that you do not die.

 If you can, you want to try and stay away from alcohol at any time in your life. So if you are younger person reading this and you have never touched a sip of alcohol, we recommend that you never try it one time in your life because it is just going to be very unhealthy for you. Alcohol is a very addicting drug and it is not something you want to mess with.

Kills brain cells-alcohol is also something that can kill a lot of your brain cells. See you want to make sure and watch out for drinking too much because it can make you extremely dumb. It is just something that numbs your mind and makes your thinking process even slower because after you drink too much all of your brain cells will be gone.

Makes you age faster-usually when somebody drinks alcohol a lot it is going to make them age extremely fast.  This is something that you don’t want to happen because it is going to oftentimes make you lead a shorter life. You do not want to be that guy that’s walking around at 30 years old and looks like he’s 50. A lot of alcoholics hair falls out when they are at a very young age.  This is because of the stress that being an alcoholic causes. It is not something that is meant to be if you want to look good.

Makes depression even worse-  alcohol is a depressant medicine meaning that it is going to take away your depression when you’re on it, but on the downside it is going to make your depression even worse when you are off. Drugs like this are designed to make you addicted to them. They have side effects like this to keep you addicted so that you drink feel good. When you’re depressed all the time you will drink all the time because it’s what makes you forget about all the bad things in your life. This will leave a week of distraction in your life because you will never feel more depressed after you are sobered up again.

The pros and cons of going to rehab

Alcoholics Anonymous

 We are back with our second blog post for you guys and today we will be talking to you about the pros and cons going to rehab and what it can do for your alcohol addiction. Alcohol addiction is something that is a very serious matter if you have a problem with it. You want to do whatever means you can to get rid of it as fast as you can. The best thing that you can do is quit cold turkey but a lot of people cannot do that because they do not have the willpower to do so.

 Rehab can be a great thing for you if you want to get clean from your alcohol addiction. It is also good for if you want to get rid of any drug addiction. Rehab is mostly design for alcohol addiction though.  There are upsides to rehab and there are downsides as well. We will be explaining in a list below all of the upsides of the downsides.

It teaches your new habits-rehab is something that is going to definitely cure your alcoholism because they teach you very good habits. They will change your habits from drinking alcohol to doing more productive things to get your life back to normal. They do a lot of activities during the day to keep your mind off alcohol.  When you go to rehab you will do things like walk outside, spend time conversing with people, playing certain brain games, and many other various activities that you can pick up as positive habits. They will condition you on these things every single day so that you naturally pick up them as a habit. When you do something enough it will rewire your brain to keep doing that and basically get  addicted to something that is good instead of bad.  When you are in rehab you are going to experience things that you will build habits in like playing with your dog or taking long walks outside. They will even teach you how to be more productive and procrastinate less with every day tasks.  That is the big upside to rehabilitation centers, but there is one big downside and a cost with that as well.

Rehab is very expensive-the only downside about rehab is that it is extremely expensive to go through and a lot of people don’t have the money or insurance to do so. The one big problem with rehabilitation is that you need to go to a very high Lee reputable place for it to even work. For example, don’t let your social worker send you to a page place because they’re going to do the bare minimum of treatment and not treat you very well. When you go to a place like passages Malibu, it is going to be like a resort and a vacation away from alcoholism. You need something that is going to completely take your mind off of it for the treatment to work. And the only way that you can do that is by paying a lot of money to go to a very nice place. Most rehabilitation centers are going to cost you about $40-$50,000 for one session. So we definitely recommend that you start a fundraiser to get the money if you are one that can get access. If you are rich though, this is something that will be very easy for you to do.v completely take your mind off of it for the treatment to work.
