Addiction is a Deadly disease, that can be interrupted with professional Interventions. — December 14, 2017

Addiction is a Deadly disease, that can be interrupted with professional Interventions.

Addiction is a deadly disease that continues to win with persons that struggling to stop using drugs or alcohol.

13391679_10153623874976863_8490834708337808875_o

Chemically Dependecy is The deadly of all addictive behaviors. It is the lifestyle that kills drug addicts. The body starts to show signs of how internal organs break down. We can be fighters in life with a strong way of dealing with a lifestyle of active addiction and having an unmanageable life, but when the function in the body breaks down, it becomes a medical issue.
If persons are more interested in using drugs and not taking responsibility for their health, the ultimate will happen.

The power of denial for Addicts of how they want to control their lifestyle and think in someways, that things are not do bad.

Jail, institutions, overdoses, loosing family members, jobs, education and being caught in the cycle of finding and getting more drugs or alcohol to survive becomes a commonality of how Addicts live.
Addicts loose track of time, and put themselves in situations, and environment that could set themselves up for death.
Families become baffled their loved ones, gets out of a hospital of a drug overdose, to go back to using drugs soon after.
During my family education groups , I help families understand that an addict is usually the last person that knows they are going to use, until they inject the drug into their bodies.
Once the drug is activated, the addict is high from the drug, the cycle stArts all over again.

Drugs are powerful, it takes away the uncomfortable of ones life, it takes awAy the physical pain of coming of drugs, it helps to cope with the drug addiction lifestyle. It becomes part of the persons life.

Addiction is a cunning , powerful disease that will rob untreated folks of their life, steal from families and eventually, it will kill the addict.

For more information about Drug Addiction or if your family need help to interrupt the disease of Addiction in your family. Can Am Interventions is here to help.

Drug Overdose Interventions. — December 11, 2017

Drug Overdose Interventions.

Print

Can Am Interventions provides interventions for families and individuals suffering with addiction or complex attachment disorder and borderline personality both in Canada and the United States.
Recently, I was having a discussion with a colleague in Florida, specifically about, drug overdoses and the Opiate Epidemic, both in the United States and Canada.
I am very passionate to continue my role as a professional and support my native country Canada with a goal to advocate for change, using evidence based practices and doing my part to address addiction in Canada.
In, 2017, there was over 1100 drug overdoses to date in Canada. How do we find a solution that is not just based on a medical model? Which is a huge part of saving lives, a bitter sweet question. or How do we introduce recovery into the lives of addictive person, at a time when someone overdoses? Without getting in the middle of the medical model/ persons doing their jobs?
My colleague shared a story of a “Recovery Coach Program” that is helping many persons after 911 calls related to drug overdose and transfer to local hospitals. In the state of Connecticut, New England, U.S., there are 12 hospital that have jumped onboard with this idea of having a Recovery Coach Program. The east coast has always been progressive in getting onboard with great ideas.
The Recovery Coach program is designed to provide addiction support services to drug/alcohol overdose patients by having a Recovery Coach mentorship program, to meet with patient’s after drug overdose.
In most cases overdoses patients usually are discharged within 24 hours after a 911 ambulance ride from a medical person. Once the patients can verbally say to a nurse or physician that everything is okay, vitals are back to normal. The patient signed a release and discharged from the hospital. The untreated (addicted person), goes back to where they left off, using drugs with no “Recovery Intervention” other than ” a lifesaving effort by a medical person that saved their lives”.

13391679_10153623874976863_8490834708337808875_o
Emergency rooms at hospitals are much like “zoos”, nurses, doctors and medical staff are running around dealing with many sick folks that are in medical crisis. Most of the time, persons that overdose are left in their beds, waiting for their vitals to return to normal and discharged.
If there was a “Recovery Coach Program” as part of an overdoes protocol at hospitals. This can be an opportunity for a recovery interventions to address addiction and recovery. This can be a great opportunity for change, to build a professional connection with patient’s, addicted to drugs/alcohol.
Using a Recovery Coach approach can, not only address the issues of Addiction, it can support the medical staff, advocate for the suffering addictive person by using an Addiction professional person, making connection, provide resources and intervening before the person is discharged.

RECOVERY COACH ROLE:
 Recovery Coach trained in Addiction
 Recovery Coach can support the Medical Team and patients within 24-72 hours period, prior to patient’s discharged.
 Recovery Coach can facilitate Assessment and Mentorship.
 Untreated person would have a connection to a Recovery Coach that understands the Nature of Addiction
 Recovery Coach can help with Aftercare plans or Referrals, addressing client’s needs.
 Recovery Coach can work on Addiction Treatment plans.
 Recovery Coach can help reconnect patients, with Family Members or Friends.
 Recovery Coach can help set Recovery Goals.
 Recovery Coach can provide Support Services in the community.

Many untreated persons that end up in a hospital room from an overdose are let back out the door without having any type Addiction or Recovery services, other than medical interventions. That was my reasoning for writing this blog, to bring awareness and focused on a solution. This would be a fantastic opportunity to write a grant or gain funding to work with your local hospital to help fight addiction and promote recovery skills.
My belief, “one addict helping another “much like the “12 step model “.
Providing evidence best practices with trained recovery coaches, can be a powerful resource, to create personal connection, at a time of a drug overdose. “it can save lives”.
The nature of addictive traits is self-centeredness, shame, guilt and behaviors related to the cycle of denial which is part of the negatives characteristics, related addictions.
When an addicted person is laying in a hospital bed after a drug overdose, they want out of there ASAP. It is uncommon state of mind for any addicted person, to not have drugs in their body. An uncomfortable state of mind, addiction will win that battle and the addicted person will use drugs. If there was an interruption to break the cycle of denial, it may give a person a sense of hope. The shame attached to addiction has a strong hold on most untreated addicted person, they feel judged most of the time, and they judged themselves. Addictive persons will rationalize in their minds the reasons to blame others for not accepting help.

What a great human way to help “break down the cycle of addiction and denial “using Recovery Coach to give the untreated person the gift of unconditional support.
Having a trained Recovery Coach/peer with personal experience, related to addiction can be a way to connect with a person. Keeping the lines of professionalism, not coming from a 12-step model approach, coming from a place of resources, recovery coaching may interrupt the cycle of Addiction.
• Compassion and professional approach can help to create “healthy attachments” at a time when a person is hitting their bottom.
• Having a trained recovery coach with professional skills to connect with the untreated addictive person.
