The Recipe for Victory Over Any Addiction

by Dina Perkins

Whether it’s drugs, alcohol, food, gambling, porn, shopping, or something else that runs your life to the level of serious compulsion, there’s a way out that is not just a release, but a victory.

How do we gain victory over obstacles in our lives, such as an addiction, that seem to be tearing us to pieces and controlling our lives as if we were attached to ‘it’ with a ball and chain? So, today I want to discuss victory and the matter of fact way you

  1. What is Victory?
  2. Is victory still possible to achieve even when the darkest hour has come?
  3. Why do you need a recovery or addictions ‘coach’?
  4. Are there steps to follow to become victorious over addiction and be free?
  5. Can you successfully do this alone or do you need help?  What kind of help?
  6. What actions to you need to take for achieving victory?

Victory, in it’s basic generic sense, is obtaining authority over something we thought had an inescapable and relentless hold on us. It’s freedom that we want to celebrate. When we formulate the mindset of submission, we’re done and victory won’t likely be ours to own. Never submit to addiction.  Work on your thoughts to change and never give up until it’s accomplished.  We don’t fail unless with die in an addiction.  Then we have given the addiction permission to rule over us.

I personally believe that we can achieve victory as long as we’re still breathing and have the desire and self respect to change.  My focus, however, in my life and ministry is in addiction.  It’s during our darkest hour when we fight the hardest.  When we fight hard, we win. It’s when we are cornered that we fight to the death. That’s why people say that those in addiction have to hit rock bottom in order to be able to see the need to get clean.

Now we come to the question of whether or not we need a life coach. I believe that EVERYONE needs a life coach!  I guess I’m a bit biased because I am a coach… a recovery coach, a leadership coach and a marriage educator/coach; however, the reason for my bias is that human nature tells us that unless we figure it out for ourselves, we’re not inspired to make the proper changes in our lives. Coaching is a trained individual who, through a skilled set of probing questions, leads their client to the proper direction for their life.  It is not someone who gives advice or counsels; it’s someone who ‘leads the horse to water’.  It’s just plain fact that if you tell someone, ‘don’t’, they will and if you tell someone, ‘do’, they won’t;  so we never want to direct another’s life.   Not only do I believe that every person on earth should contract with a life coach, I believe that we all need the Life Coach of all life coaches – Jesus Christ Himself.  If you know your Bible, you know that Jesus never told anyone what to do, He just gently told of His ways in parables, analogies and laws. God is a gentleman and forces no one to follow Him; however, He causes us to fall in love with Him.

Now for the steps or phases for your path to victory.  Could there be an actual outline of things to do in order to win victory over substance abuse – or anything else in life?  Yes there is a protocol. My protocol applies in a general sense to any challenge that you are wrestling with.  Here goes...

  1. Observe.  Tune up your observational skills.  Do an assessment as to what is happening to you by rewinding to the beginning of this ‘problem’ and think about how you got into this situation in the first place and reasons why you feel you started.  As an example, ask yourself why you started taking drugs or why you started to drink.  Take yourself back to that very moment when you took that first pill… shot Heroin for the first time… did your first line of cocaine… shopped till you dropped… gambled it all away at a casino or won a boatload of money… etc.  What problem did these substances or activities seem to solve in those first moments that caused you to do it again and continue – even though you knew you shouldn’t.
  2. Analyze.  Do some self-analysis and ask yourself, what results am I not getting now  that I did get in the beginning?  Why am I continuing in this addiction if it’s not solving anything in my life, but it’s making me sick?  Knowing that drugs and alcohol cause organ damage and death, and other addictions cause the loss of money, self worth and family, what the heck is causing me to still continue?
  3. Ask.  Ask the opinions of those close to you.  Why not ask your close friends and loved ones to be raw and real with you about what kinds of change they have seen in you over the last few years that they are disappointed in you about and wish was different.
  4. Imagine. Close your eyes and imagine your life FREE from the bondage of your addiction.  God gave us a mind with the ability to imagine… to attain things we have yet accomplished… to see things that don’t yet exist.  Now that I have you sitting (or laying down on your favorite comfy sofa or chair), how does it feel to have no compulsion to count those pills… chase the next high… gamble away your savings… spend all of your monthly budget shopping for ‘stuff’… drinking yourself into oblivion… stuffing your face on junk until you can’t take a breath?  I ask you again… how does it feel?  What do you see yourself spending time doing once you’re free?  What are friends and loved ones saying to you?
  5. Your Future.  If you were to get FREE of your addiction, what might you want to be doing 2 years from now that you couldn’t even imagine doing while you are in your addiction?  Right now, your every waking hour is devoted to your addiction.  If you’re not actually needing to get high, get drunk or partake in the other addictions mentioned here, what would you love to be doing with your time?
  6. Take Action!  If you have been encouraged and inspired by honestly responding to these past 5 questions and thoughts, do something, and do it today.  At the end of each day of any addiction, there is loss.  For those in chemical addictions, that loss is the loss of your health and, eventually, your life.  For non-chemical addictions, the loss is that of family, dignity and money.  For those in non-chemical addictions, there are support groups and life coaches to help you return to normalcy.  For those involved in chemical addictions – Rx drug addiction, illegal drugs and alcohol – make arrangements for medical detox which is accomplished through a medically supervised detox center or in a hospital detox unit or mental health unit.  Once you are fully detoxed, it’s time for 3-4 months of one on one specialized Bible based life coaching.  Addiction is NOT a disease and no one should have to be navigating any 12 Step programs that have a success rate of less than 1%.  Congrats, and kudos,  if you’re among that one percent; however , statistics have shown that people do better if they go it alone than if they take part in any 12 Step group.  In my opinion, the ‘Steppers’ exude pure heresy and are a disgrace to God.   Plain and simple, addiction is sin. Jesus came to die for your sins and take them away from you.  If He sacrificed Himself for your sins, He certainly can heal you completely for your entire lifetime.
  7. Freedom! Live Life like you’ve never lived before!  You are now released from bondage; you are FREE. Take time to smell those magnificent roses. Enjoy your hope and your future. You can now do ANYTHING you want to do!, So, go ahead and do it.  Live!

Healing begins with thought! Thought leads to words.  Words lead to actionable steps that cause change.  Change causes you to live a new, healthier, addiction free life. That addiction free life repairs our broken relationship with Jesus Christ and you can now forward to eternity in Heaven.


So, who’s this Jesus?  Why do I need Him?  What’s He got to do with my life and my healing?

If you haven’t heard, Jesus is one and only  Son of the Living God. He came to earth as a baby who was 100% man and 100% God.  He grew up as a humble man who preached the message of righteousness and salvation.  He is the Messiah. He’s not a fairy tale character… history itself has documented accounts of His birth, ministry , cruel death an resurrection.  His presence here on earth is irrefutable. He came here to die on the cross as the sacrificial Lamb on the Passover.  Up until He willingly died on that cross, animals had to be sacrificed for the forgiveness of sin. Once Jesus was savagely beaten and crucified for YOU, it was finished… no more animal sacrifices needed to be done. He took you sins upon Himelf, as well as all the sins of the world, and upon receiving Him, you are joined with Him for all eternity in Heaven.  If you don’t receive Him of your free will, you will enter an eternity in Hell.  That’s doesn’t sound like a loving and compassionate God, you say? Well, I disagree. He DIED for YOU so that you would NOT have to go to Hell… a place designed for Satan and the fallen angels. Would YOU die for someone so that they could live?  Only God could do that.  I’d say that is a God so loving… so compassionate… so caring… that it blows my mind.

How do you become part of eternity in Heaven, where there will be no more sorrow, no more pain, no more tears and no more death?  It’s a FREE GIFT and pretty easy.  The scripture says,

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Gentile: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)

In a prayer, you only have to confess to God that you believe He is God… that He died for your sins… and that you will live the rest of your life serving Him in righteousness.  Then, you need to read your Bible so that you know how to live a righteous life that is pleasing to God – not yourself.  Fellowship with other Spirit filled born again believers – in a home fellowship or a Spirit filled non-denominational church that preaches Jesus for Salvation. Stay on the ‘straight and narrow’ by getting yourself out of the way and becoming more like Him. God will transform you as long as you obey Him. You life will be a new birth… a new second chance… a new peace that you have never experienced before. Change will happen. You will be born again, as the Bible speaks of.  If you need help in understanding more about true Salvation and the only way to Heaven (according to the Holy Bible), please contact me. I would be happy to answer any of your questions and/or pray with you.

If you are struggling with an addiction, Jesus will take it from you and you will be FREE for life!

Heroin & Cocaine VS Rx Drugs From Your Doctor. Same or Different?

Today, I want to show you how accepting those dangerous prescriptions from your doctor is causing you to be equal to a heroin/cocaine abuser. Once you know that your doctor is giving you dangerous medications, it is up to you to make a change in your life or suffer torment, withdrawal, organ failure, seizures, stroke, heart attack and an early death.

We all know that when a person struts down to his or her drug dealer, we know that they’re willingly, knowingly and purposely after a high and are bound and determined to get it.  We also know that they are fully aware that if they get caught using, they will spend some time in  jail. Another known factor is that – most of the time – people sell their bodies in order to get that high because, without it, they will get violently sick and possibly die from withdrawal.  Another given is that they are knowingly risking their lives every single time they use.  Overdose, as everyone knows, is all too common.

So, what about Rx drugs that your doctor gives you?

  • More people die from doctors’ prescription drugs than do people using Heroin and Cocaine combined.
  • Prescription drugs such as Opiates, Benzodiazepines, Hypnotics (sleeping pills) and Stimulants (just to name a few categories) should NEVER be prescribed for more than 3 days – if at all. Antidepressants, antipsychotics and other psychotropic drugs should NEVER be prescribed by anyone other than a board certified psychiatrist; even then, you must consider whether or not this person needs to be hospitalized and evaluated in a mental health unit as these drugs cause suicidal and homicidal ideations.
  • Doctors that offer you these drugs, outside of a hospital facility, and for more than 3 days, are basically drug dealers who wear white coats.

Do the patients who use Rx drugs seek after the same high as street drug users do?

  • Absolutely YES!  The addictive Rx drugs given to you by your doctor do not keep their intensity. In other words, the dose you take today will not have the same effect on you when you continue to take it for 2 weeks. That means that your doctor will most likely increase the dose or add another drug to potentiate (make stronger) it’s effect.  As a matter of fact, many doctors, in order to keep you addicted, will add certain specific other drugs that will give give their patients the equivalent of a very potent ‘heroin high’.
  • Dosages are raised by doctors or additional drugs are added because every few weeks, the effect and euphoria (or high) of these drugs dissipates.  Keep in mind that these drugs, while becoming less effective, are stored in the body’s vital organs. This is the reason people ‘accidentally’ overdose and never see it coming.

Is it possible that Rx drug users could end up doing prison time or have to sell their bodies?

  • Yes!  It happens every day of the week. Why, you ask?  The reason is that laws are getting tighter and doctors are being squeezed not to prescribe these types of drugs… especially Opiate painkillers.  These days they can face professional discipline for misconduct, malpractice suits for iatrogenic addiction and death, and criminal criminal charges. So, what do the people do who are on these drugs and now suffer withdrawal? They hit the streets and buy heroin!  Heroin is an opiate. Whether they are 12 or 90, they will start shooting up because the withdrawal is unbearable and they don’t want to be hospitalized for 14 days to detox. As we know, this is illegal.  Being illegal, these people who have graduated from pills to heroin are now conducting themselves as other heroin abusers do, so they easily can and do end up with criminal charges.

What about withdrawal and accidental overdose?  My doctor would never put me on drugs that would cause harm to me!

  • Think again, my friends!  Remember that nasty thing called ‘GREED’?  Greed causes those who have the love of money to do crazy things.  Just because some people have an MD, DO, PA, or NP after their names doesn’t mean they don’t or can’t love money!  People who love money look for ways to make that money in a cushy, easy way.  What’s easier than addicting patients to drugs?  State laws mandate that these patients MUST come into the medical office monthly in order to get more pills. Insurances pay upward of $880 per 5 minute visit for the patient to get a new Rx. Multiply that by the average number of patients doctors have in the US per month.  I’m not going to figure out the statistics for you… you can google that if you want; however, what I will tell you is that in 2012 (the most recent statistics available form the CDC), 259,000,000 (million) prescriptions were written for just Opioids alone!!!!!!!!!  You do the math on how lucrative it is for doctors to prescribe these drugs and how they only have to spend 5 minutes with a patient to make upwards of $880.00 per month per patient. Don’t you wonder how your monster doctor affords all of those luxury vacations… new cars… huge houses (and multiple homes)… designer clothes… private schools… etc? I guess you’ve been reading my words here because you guessed it… it’s by prescribing addictive and mind altering drugs!  Voila!  One American dies every 19 minutes here in the US from a prescription overdose from addictive drugs prescribed by their doctor.  IATROGENIC DEATH is now the #1 cause of accidental death in America.  To me, it’s no accident when doctors know what these drugs do and prescribe them anyway. Even after a patient has experienced a massive overdose, their doctor will prescribe them to that same patient again when they get home from the hospital. That’s egregious since the chance of overdose is GREATER after an overdose has already occurred. For many, it only takes just one pill!!!

Motto of my post today?  NEVER TRUST YOUR DOCTOR!  

  • Do the research – Look up the drugs yourself and ask your pharmacist for a package insert so that you can see all facts about the drugs.
  • ask questions of pharmacists, naturopaths, google ‘dangers of (name of drug)’ and see what others have experienced and what remains hidden from patients.
  • allow a window of time before accepting any Rx or procedure in order to get other opinions from doctors who are naturopaths.
  • *******NEVER start with these drugs and you’ll never get addicted, you’ll never get dead before your time, and you’ll never suffer the evil ravages of taking them.
  • Look for an MD or DO who is a Naturopath… seek natural alternatives.
  • For pain, google LDN… an awesome way to control pain, many diseases and helps you sleep.  It doesn’t ’cause’ anything in your body… it enables your body to heal itself.

“I can do ALL things through Christ” – yes, you CAN even get off drugs & alcohol!

Every single day of my life – without exception – I help, teach and bring awareness to the dangers of prescription drug abuse along with illegal drug and alcohol abuse.  Most who come to me are professing Christians!  How can I say I’m a born again believer and, at the same time, warn people about premature death? I mean, death is life to us who are true believers; it’s a ‘good’ thing, right? It means entry into eternity! Well, yes… but only IF you’re not involved in ongoing sin. Addiction is sin.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
(1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

The Bible speaks about “drunkards” going to Hell! Drunkard, is defined by anyone who uses a mind altering substance, such as Rx drugs, street drugs and alcohol. God doesn’t categorize saved drunkards from unsaved drunkards. A drunkard is a drunkard and a drunkard is not anyone who is saved. If someone thinks they’re saved and is using any types of drugs (including physician ordered Rx drugs) or alcohol, the Bible speaks another story, doesn’t it? God also tells us to be ‘sober and vigilant’ as well as warning us that our bodies are the ‘Temple of the Holy Spirit’. You smokers out there are in spiritual harm’s way as well, because cigarettes destroy God’s Temple – your body. Frightfully clear, isn’t it? Don’t be tricked by the enemy telling you that you’re soul is safe; it’s not! Ongoing sin separates us from God. When the Bible strictly and specifically warns that addicts (drunkards) will end up in the Lake of Fire, I would step up and believe Him. After all, God is the ONLY One who cannot lie. Stepping up means getting medically detoxed so that you can live without any kinds of drugs or alcohol. Begin right now and schedule yourself for detox! After you get home from detox, get some support for a few months in order to permanently lock out addiction and lock in God. Get FREE!

I can do ALL things through Christ which strengtheneth me.  (Phil 4:13)

One Of The Many Victims Of America’s Psychiatric And Psychopharmaceutical Industries

psychiatric victims

By Gary G. Kohls, MD, guest to Natural Blaze

I recently had a dialogue with a person who had emailed me about a friend of hers who had been mis-treated for years by drug-prescribing psychiatrists. The psychiatrists – and their alarming and illogical drugging – had made him worse and worse and eventually totally disabled over the years. Because of the high probability that the drugs he had taken over the years – known to be both neurotoxic and addictive – were also brain-damaging and dementia-inducing, we discussed some things that perhaps could be helpful (see the information below).

The obvious major problem, according to the person who contacted me, was the fact that the patient had been continuously over-dosed with irrational cocktails of a multitude of dangerous psychiatric drugs. Since there were a number of lessons that I thought my readers could benefit from learning, I decided to make the letter into a Duty to Warn column.

Below is the essence of my last communication with the friend of the over-drugged patient.


“What a mess your friend’s so-called healers have made of his brain!! They are guilty, guilty, guilty of “first doing harm” rather than first doing NO harm (per the Hippocratic Oath). You tell me that he has been on SSRI antidepressants, psychostimulants, anti-psychotics, tranquilizers and mood stabilizers, which are the five categories of psychotropic drugs. A psychiatrist who has been using such a variety of drugs doesn’t know what he is doing , but what is worse is that he trusts the totally untrustworthy, amoral psychiatric drug companies way too much!

“No human being on earth would have responded any other way than how your friend has responded, what with being prescribed unknown combinations of brain-altering, brain-damaging synthetic drugs. Note that Big Pharma never does research involving more than one drug at a time even in the rat labs! What must come out of such corporate pseudo-research is bad science and therefore bad medicine!

“Below is the partial list of medications that you mentioned in your letter that your friend had taken at one time or another, usually, of course, in a cocktail of other drugs, any combination of which – as I mentioned above – has never been tested in either pre-clinical (animal lab) or clinical (human) trials for either safety or efficacy, either short-term or long-term.

“Zoloft, Effexor, Wellbutrin, Xanax, Concerta (36mg), Lamictal (as high as 900 mg), Lithium (only about a week as his psoriasis acted up), Depakote, modafinil, Ambien, Abilify, Zyprexa, Valium.”

See: The Secret Lives Of Ambien Zombies

1) Pfizer’s Zoloft, GlaxoSmithKline’s Wellbutrin and Pfizer’s Effexor are powerful and addictive so-called “antidepressant” drugs (which should more accurately have been called “agitation-inducing” drugs (but that wouldn’t have been good for Big Pharma’s business model). Most of them have been classed by the pharmaceutical industry as “selective serotonin reuptake pump inhibitors (SSRIs) – a very deceptive term because they are NOT selective to serotonin and they mess around with more organelles in the synapses of the brain than the reuptake pumps).

(Other examples of such drugs include Forest Lab’s Celexa, Lilly’s Cymbalta,Forest’s Lexapro, GlaxoSmithKline’s Paxil, Pfizer’s Pristiq, Lilly’s Prozac, Jazz’s Luvox, Merck’s Remeron, Lilly’s Symbyax, Bayer’s Yaz, and Lilly’s Sarafem.)

2) McNeil’s Concerta is a psychostimulant drug identical to Novartis’s Ritalin. They are in the class of drugs (FDA-approved for so-called ADHD or somnolence, including – irrationally – sleepiness caused by sleep deprivation!). These drugs are powerful and highly addictive dopamine and/or nor-epinephrine reuptake pump inhibitors that temporarily boost the level of those two transmitters in the synapse but at the same time dysregulate dopamine receptors as well as dopamine reuptake pumps.

(Other examples of such drugs include  Shire’s Adderall, Shire’s Daytrana, Novartis’s Focalin, Shire’s Intuniv, UCB’s Metadate, Mallinckrodt’s Methylin, Cephalon’s Nuvigil, Lilly’s Strattera, Shire’s Vyvanse, Cephalon’s Provigil (modafinil), caffeine, nicotine, dexedrine, “uppers”, etc, that commonly cause mania, psychosis and sleep deprivation in addition to many other dangerous symptoms that can make ignorant or too-busy physicians think that the patient is mentally ill; rather than psychiatric drug-intoxicated.)

3) Eli Lilly’s Zyprexa, Janssen’s Abilify and Glaxo’s Lamictal, all so-called “anti-psychotic” drugs (which should more accurately have been called heavily-sedating major tranquilizers, which are seriously brain-altering drugs). These drugs are dopamine, norepinephrine and often serotonin blocking drugs that make victims feel dead inside. These drugs are also brain-damaging and highly dependency-inducing drugs that are difficult to stop taking, partly because one of the serious withdrawal symptoms is psychosis. Patients who have been given such drugs for off-label reasons such as for sleeping (never having been psychotic before taking the drug) have been known to have hallucinations and acute psychotic attacks during the withdrawal period!

(Other examples of such drugs include the now-generic Haldol, Prolixin, Mellaril, fluphenazine, perphenazine, prochlorperazine, thioridazine, GlaxoSmithKline’s Thorazine, Lilly’s Zyprexa, Astra-Zeneca’s Seroquel, Janssen’s Risperdal, Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Abilify, Pfizer’s Geodon, Novartis’s Clozaril, Novartis’s Fanapt, Janssen’s Invega and Merck’s Saphris).

4) Roche’s Valium, Pfizer’s Xanax and Sanofi Aventis’s Ambien are benzodiazepine-type drugs, which are powerful and highly addicting. They are the so-called “minor” tranquilizers and sleeping pills.

(Other examples include Valeant’s Librium, Valeant’s Dalmane, Biovail’s Ativan, Lundbeck’s Tranxene, Pfizer’s Halcion, Roche’s Klonopin, Sepacor’s Lunesta, Mallinckrodt’s Restoril, Takeda’s Rozerem and King’s Sonata, any of which can cause somnolence, depression, lowered IQ and long-term brain damage and, when the dose is cut down, can cause serious withdrawal symptoms, including serious insomnia, agitation, psychosis and mania.)

5) Abbott’s Depakote and the generic lithium are so-called “mood stabilizer” drugs. Depakote could have caused your friend’s liver failure. Most “mood stabilizers” (except for lithium) are drugs that were designed and marketed as anti-epilepsy drugs, for which they were approved by the FDA. However, they have been heavily marketed (often illegally) as “mood stabilizers” or drugs that might help pain perception or anxiety but they have also been found, upon withdrawal, to cause agitation, insomnia and even grand mal seizures, even if the patient had never had a seizure before. (Other examples include Pfizer’s Neurontin, Pfizer’s Dilantin, Ortho-McNeil’s Topamax, Pfizer’s Lyrica and UCB’s Keppra).

6) Of course your friend was probably also using the over-the-counter (OTC) psychoactive substances caffeine and nicotine. The heavy use of such addictive “food substances” such as coffee, caffeinated soda pop, NutraSweet-laden “diet” pop and tobacco by patients on “anti-psychotics” is legendary.

    Read: Taking Apart Psychiatry – Fraud Kings Of The Mind

“Those unfortunates that have been labeled with a psychosis and then forced to take “anti-psychotics” are almost always addicted to these OTC psychostimulants as well. Drugs that block dopamine and nor-epinephrine will make patients feel so numb and dead inside that they will do anything to overcome the dopamine and nor-epinephrine under-stimulation. And so, not only will they be dependent on the toxic prescription drug, they will also be addicted to the toxic stimulant substance. De-ciphering what drug is doing what is very difficult and time-consuming to figure out, and so most ignorant and too-busy doctors never try. They just keep prescribing the drugs and keep their fingers crossed, hoping that they will never have to face the inevitable withdrawal syndromes.

“Of course when the inevitable happens and such unlucky patients can’t afford the prescriptions anymore, can’t afford health insurance premiums, can’t afford the deductible fees, can’t afford the co-pays, loses health care for any other reason or somehow just quits or cuts down on the drugs (because they know they are being sickened by them), the patient will probably wind up in a mental hospital where another new mental illness label will be falsely applied and a new cocktail of brain-damaging and addictive drugs will be forced upon the patient again.

“Most physicians (and all physician assistants) do not understand the exact mechanism of action of the above drugs nor do they know how to help get their patients off the drugs when they start to understand the adverse effects that occur with ALL of these medications.

“It is important to remind ourselves that none of these psychiatric drugs were ever tested in the animal labs in any combination of two or more drugs, which is also true for the human trials!

“And there are hardly any long-term trials done either (most animal lab experiments last fewer than a week in length and most human anti-depressant trials lasted – on average – 6 weeks in duration, even though most humans are told to take them the rest of their lives!)

“Also none of these drugs were ever tested in sequential trials (one drug following another) for safety or efficacy!

“So your friend has been experimented upon by a system that knows next to nothing about what happens at the synapse level of the human brain, especially long-term. His psychiatrists have been cavalierly drugging him – on a trial and error basis, no less – with a multitude of dangerous and addictive chemical substances and combinations of substances that never came anywhere close to curing him.

“Indeed, these neurotoxic substances have instead made him worse with every cumulative dose. As we discussed, I believe that there is a good chance that his initial diagnoses were likely to have been in error.

“In other words, he might have only been experiencing a temporary, albeit perhaps overwhelming, emotional issue that could have been cured with non-pharmaceutical means such as good psychotherapy. But instead, he was probably quickly mis-diagnosed (because, unfortunately, he saw psychiatrists who have immense power and authority over their patients) with a “permanent”, “life-long”, “incurable”, “probably inherited” “mental illness” that would make him a permanent patient of the psychiatric and pharmaceutical industries, who would be the ones to profit by prescribing and supplying the “necessary” drugs (that would be endlessly dealt out to him on a trial and error basis).

“Of course, if that scenario of erroneous diagnosis is true, your friend has been also been mis-treated. To de-cipher the situation in retrospect would require a series of thorough history-taking clinic visits and a slow tapering off of the brain-damaging drugs (along with close attention to his mal-nourished and drug-sickened brain and body plus good psychotherapy for whatever was the original emotional issue – as well as for the current psychological trauma from the mis-treatment he has received).

“I’m sorry to be so pessimistic, but honesty is the best policy. Your friend’s brain may be so messed up that he will never totally recover. His brain has already suffered enough damage to make him totally brain-disabled. But the fact that he had a good career prior to swallowing all those drugs, perhaps his prognosis is better than I fear. If he and his loved ones can educate themselves adequately, that will improve his chances. Please be aware that he might only be able to lower his medications to a minimum level to avoid serious withdrawal symptoms, or at least be willing to take many months or years to do the tapering.

“Also, because he has been on such a large number of drugs, he is at high risk of developing a psychiatric drug-induced dementia (an iatrogenic disease [doctor-caused] that his “doctors” will surely try hard to dismiss and mis-diagnose as Alzheimer’s Disease [of unknown origin] rather than implicate themselves as responsible for the dementia).

“I have had extensive experience with hundreds of similarly mal-treated “psychiatric” patients during my career, and I have been repeatedly angered over the injustices that had been done to them by well-meaning but poorly-informed physicians or physician assistants. A really good, committed lawyer that has no ties to Big Pharma or Big Medicine could have sued any of those mal-practicing doctors and drug companies – if there was any justice in this world and if the Big Pharma defense lawyers weren’t so well-paid and so cunning at making sure that justice is never done applied to the drug company’s victims.

“First of all very few lawyers want to go up against the raft of Big Pharma lawyers that every corporation has on retainer, and very few independent lawyers are eager to go up against the doctors in their own communities because it would be bad for their lawyer business.

“So what to do? It is important, first of all, to find a sympathetic, understanding, knowledgeable physician who is able and willing to write prescriptions for smaller and smaller doses of the offending drugs and will help in the slow tapering process.

“One caveat: the mechanics and neuroscience of tapering off psych drugs is NOT taught in medical schools, because Big Pharma has acquired too much influence on the medical education of our med students and the post-graduation education of licensed physicians. Big Pharma has also been very successful in indoctrinating (and in many cases bribe) academic researchers, authors of medical textbooks, medical school professors, politicians (especially the liberal ones) and the thousands of health journalists into believing the totally false notion of psych drug efficacy and safety, so that now the public also believes the dangerous myth (with lots of help from TV commercials).

“Therefore it is the rare physician who has the knowledge that there is such a thing as psychiatric drug-induced brain damage or psychiatric drug-induced dementia. And it also the rare physician that will have the inclination or the time to do what needs to be done.

“I would suggest that your friend’s caretakers to go to http://www.cchrint.org and view some of the videos there. Also, I would suggest reading some of the many of columns on the topic of mental ill health that I have written over the years. Many of them are archived at Duty to Warn and at Transcend.org.

“Good luck. Don’t give up. There is much justice-seeking to do. What you can learn will help increase the awareness of your friend’s tragic story. Perhaps future victimization from the psychiatric and psychopharmaceutical industries can be halted, so that others won’t have to go through the same things your friend has had to go through.

“Try to find some other folks with similar concerns that might want to get together with you to share information and learn more about you can do together, but don’t trust the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI is a Big Pharma front group whose entire existence has been funded by the drug company’s hundreds of millions of dollars and never mentions the immense dangers of their drugs, nor the fact that those chemicals can cause dementia or addictions).

“Do trust, however, what you read on the website of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (www.cchrint.org).”

Opiates & Benzos

Opiates are the MOST abused drug in the US today. In some people, addiction will begin in just 3 days or less. Most will be addicted within 4-6 weeks. After that, they will need detox to get them out of their addiction. The 6 week point is the point where doctors will escalate the addiction by increasing dosages and adding other opiates or other drugs that potentiate the effect of the opiates.  Examples of other drugs would be: antidepressants, Soma, and benzodiazepines such as ativan, klonopin and xanax, hypnotics, neurontin, lyrica and more. These monster doctors are fully aware of what they are doing to you, but do it anyone because addiction is an easy ride for them. All they do is keep giving you your Rx’s each month, collect $880.00 and up in insurance money for each of your visits. When you die, there are 4 to replace you in that notorious hell of a waiting room.

One of the immediate effects of opiates are drowsiness, lethargy, memory loss, paranoia, fear, respiratory depression and oftentimes nausea. One of the reasons for memory loss is due to a condition known as hypoxia. Hypoxia is oxygen loss to the brain and is caused by the opiates causing shallow and decreased respirations. An obvious sign of opiate use that is evident in ALL who are taking opiates is what is called ‘pinprick or pinpoint pupils’. One look and a trained eye knows; you don’t need to ask. The addict thinks you can’t possible know. This is a big giveaway of opiate abuse and cannot be disguised. Dark glasses won’t cover this up. If you’re stopped by a cop, you can be arrested for a DUI and probably do time in jail for it. If you do go to jail, most courts will not help you out with withdrawal. They will let you go cold turkey which is not fun and could bring seizures, heart attack, stroke and death. It’s noteworthy to mention that you can also be arrested for a DUI with taking Benzos… even at small doses – only once daily – over a long period of time (longer than 3 months). Most likely, your pupils will be dilated and will be quite evident to the trained eye. Those benzo eyes are everywhere! Constriction can happen also, based on other medications or drugs the person is taking.

God designed the heart and mind to coexist without drugs, therefore He knows far above what doctors, psychiatrist, substance abuse counselors and the media know about the damage that happens to an addicted heart and mind. In my humble opinion, I think denial is the worst enemy of someone on opiates or benzodiazepines. They are so afraid of being without their best ‘friends’ (drugs), that they try to deny the addiction. The problem is, the addiction will not deny them the right to suffer and die.

Remember: The fact that your doctor prescribed these dangerous drugs, does NOT release you from liability. You must always do your research and be accountable. Opiates and Benzos are BIG BIZ! Doctors cash in on that. Don’t be a cash cow. If you’re in an addiction, run from the doctor who gave it to you and find a medically supervised detox facility to get you off of these drugs. It’s the ONLY safe way of doing it. Please don’t be fooled by those who say you can do it yourself; you can’t.

Are all doctor malicious and trying to addict you for the sake of the almighty dollar and easy money? Are all doctors out for the lifestyle of the rich and famous?  Of course not; however, the majority must be because doctors are now the #1 cause of preventable accidental death her in the US… now surpassing car accidents! So, your answer is in the statistics.

Who Needs Rehab when You Can Have Renewal ? !

VRM Replacement Methodology
&
Message Therapy

It is our opinion , based on years of research and experience, we have clearly concluded that addiction is a ‘symptom’ of trauma – not some theorized disease. There is no fact based clinical evidence of addiction being a disease. Yes… during the time of substance abuse, there are visible brain changes that can be seen on certain types of brain scans; however, these brain changes are active DURING the addiction – not before and not after. The other factor that we must consider and always remember about disease theorists, is that they are making massive sums of money by promoting this fraudulent disease theory. There are billions of dollars being brought in by the 12 Step revolving door rehabs… out patient rehabs… doctors and psychologists… and other professionals, paraprofessionals and institutions raking it in by taking advantage of vulnerable, hurting people who are in addiction.

VRM Replacement Methodology, replaces unsuccessful conventional revolving door rehab treatment with a Transformational Journey of Finding One’s True Purpose in this Life, which completely replaces the addiction once experienced. Rather than pin a disease theory on people, we lead them down a path towards God and Renewal. We coach our clients into understanding and realizing what attainable goals, realistic activities and new careers they would like to see themselves involved in; then, together we make it happen. We promote self esteem, self improvement, new values and a belief system that are transformational. All these things, put people on the road to a destination of total and complete healing! Victory Retreat Montana calls this adventure of self discovery, our VRM Replacement Methodology. We replace your former addiction with God and the beauty of living a full and productive life.

Message Therapy is all about God’s Word and living God’s way. Don’t believe, even for even a split second, in a recovery that never ends. What you need is to be discipled… immersed… into the Biblical principles of life in Christ… of transformation by the renewing of your mind. We do that with you. It’s a supernatural journey that ends with the final end of addiction for life.

behold, all things are become new.

VRM Replacement Methodology Heals Addiction for Life!


A Question:  Do you really think you’re on the road to recovery when greed infused disease theorists (ie: 12 Steppers) tell you that you will never recover?

Do you really think you’re truly ‘in recovery’ when the Steppers tell you that you’ll never fully recover?  Isn’t that a bold faced LIE?  Lies lead to futility… futility leads to frustration… frustration lead to anxiety and stress… stress lead to a crippling mindset that says, ‘what the heck!  A what the heck attitude will bring you full circle back into using drugs or alcohol. After all, you feel if you are set up to ‘relapse’, why bother stopping at all?

what-3By Einstein’s definition of insanity, doesn’t the extremely high failure rate of the 12 steps speak volumes as to that being the thing to avoid? The success(?) rate of AA lingers between 1% to 3%. Hmmmm… a 5% success rate is among those who do absolutely nothing! What does that say? This covered up dirty little secret of AA, coupled with the countless people going in circles through the revolving doors of the 12 step model rehabs, is the very epitome of the ‘god’ of greed! Going through a contrived recovery – ‘one day at a time’ –  isn’t freedom… it’s another bondage. The process of Recovery should lead to being Recovered at some point, or why call it ‘recovery’? It sounds good though, doesn’t it? Basically, it holds nothing but an empty promise. Are you ‘working the steps’ or are the steps working you? At some point, we need to introduce reasoning and logic into the equation. Basically, the current system of recovery is nothing more than a money making empire!  It builds rehabs… produces TV shows… gets support groups funded… sells books… etc.
The disease theorists – doctors, people, groups and institutions – receive massive amounts of funding and fees, only to tell you that you’ll never get better. What else would fuel a scared_png_by_ninetailsfoxchan-d5gu6fsnever-ending ‘program’ where no one ever recovers? Is that really where you want to go?  12 Steppers spin you around in circles as though you’re playing pin the tail on the donkey… hoping they can make you dizzy enough so that you keep falling. Then, as soon as the dizziness subsides, you’re climbing those miserable steps again. Did you know that the co-founders of AA were ongoing addicts themselves? Did they use the disease theory just want to develop an excuse for continuing ongoing substance abuse?

Simply because addiction is difficult to get unchained from doesn’t mean it’s impossible! Yes… it’s a huge challenge; however, it’s one worth taking. You have to want it as much as you want to breath! Some people are heavy sleepers and difficult to awaken in the morning; does that mean they should sleep all day, never work, never go to school and never eat?  It just means they need a nudge or a louder alarm clock. In the case of addiction, the ‘alarm clock’ is suffering and an early and unexpected accidental death.

Success and Victory over addiction begs to ask the question, “what goals, activities, career, self esteem, self improvement, values and belief system would make you happier than getting drunk or high”?  Once we coach you into figuring out some positive attainable goals for yourself, you’re on the road to a destination of total and complete healing! Victory Retreat Montana calls this adventure of self discovery, our VRM Replacement Methodology.  We replace your former addiction with God and the beauty of living a full and productive life.

Don’t believe, even for even a split second, in a recovery that never ends.  What you need is to be discipled… immersed… into the Biblical principles of life in Christ… of transformation by the renewing of your mind. Let me ask you a few pointed questions…

  1. How can you cope with life’s challenges in a more effective way than the self-defeating way than with drugs or alcohol?
  2. Given the circumstances to be able to accomplish what you would love, what are you doing right now?
  3. Jesus Himself has answered a most important prayer that you prayed… what was it?

Present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Romans 12:2

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.
2 Corinthians 5:17
