CRACK REHAB WITHOUT PRESCRIPTIONS
I’m no Doctor, but I do know one thing about crack cocaine, and that is it seriously affects brain chemistry. Period!
Have you ever monitored the patterns of a crack addict? I like to call it the roller-coaster form hell. The highest highs one week, and the lowest lows the next.
In my case, it was my brother. Allan was a great guy – very social, very active, great athlete. Everyone liked him, and his future looked bright. I really looked up to him growing up. It was hard not to. We both grew up in a great family. There was always milk in the fridge, parents at our soccer games, and Sunday night dinners with Grandma.
That was until crack came into the picture.
I remember the first day crack came into my life. I remember distinctly. I got a call on my cell phone. It was Allan, but it sure didn’t sound like him. He sounded very quiet – without life. He went on to tell me that he was being held hostage at gunpoint, unless he paid a dealer $300. I thought he was joking. This was no joke! Of course I went to help, and I gave him the money, but I will never forget the look in his eyes. He was gone. Allan, my brother was gone. Blank stare – no remorse.
That was 6 years ago. You might be wondering why I speak of him in the past-tense, and the reason is not the obvious. He’s not dead. Not physically anyways, but at this point in his life he was dead; emotionally, spiritually, and mentally – he was gone.
For years we put him in and out of drug rehab programs. No success! That’s when the roller coaster from hell began. He would just start to build himself back up again, and then Whamo! Right back at it – right back using crack. He would sell his belongings – things that he took great pride in. I saw him sell his life away, bit by bit – chipping away at his soul.
I know he had no intention of using, and I know he was sincere when he said that he hated that crap, and it wasn’t a matter of will power, because he has more willpower than any guy I have ever known. So what is it? From all of the studying I did on this subject, and I did much of that. I should have stock in Google for how much time I spent online, searching for the cure to my brother’s illness. I made a discovery! I discovered that it all boils down to brain chemistry. We all have a natural equilibrium of mood altering chemicals in our brain. You may have heard of big words like dopamine, or serotonin. Maybe you’ve heard of endorphins, and or neural pathways. But what does it all mean? What does it mean to my brother? Someone who I love; who’s addicted to crack. What I found out is that when you use crack, it skyrockets those levels way past normal, and then when he comes down or stops using, it falls well below the natural level, never fully coming back to normal. So guess what. The BRAIN CRAVES CRACK, PERIOD!
Unless you treat the cause of the problem, how can you expect to fix it?Doctors want to prescribe anti-depressents, and prescription drugs. Well in my opinion, most of these drugs are worse than the street drugs that they started with in the first place. I’ve witnessed this first hand. Talk about walking zombies.
So what’s the solution? How about a crack rehab. Yes, a crack rehab! One that actually treats the cause of the problem, one that rebalances brain chemistry – naturally. One that restores damaged liver enzymes, replenishes vitamins, minerals, oils, and amino acids.
I’m talking about a holistic approach, one that analyses neural pathways, and maps the brain – to figure out what’s going on, and then treating them with natural substances. Natural substances that correct these imbalances. Sound like science fiction?
Crack is an epidemic. An epidemic that has pulled itself out of the gutter, out of back alleys and into our homes. Into the homes of teachers, doctors, lawyers, and blue collar workers. It has pulled itself into the homes of families. Families that are loving, caring, and supportive.
Crack shows no prejudice. Whether you’re black, white, or green, it doesn’t care. It will put YOU into the gutter. So what’s the good news?
There is a solution! I found one. I’m happy to report that Allan is doing much better now. Today he is clean and sober. He has a house, a yellow lab, a good wife, 2 kids, and a solid job. He hasn’t touched crack in 2 years. So what did he do the get better? He found a crack rehab – one that treated the cause of the problem. I REPEAT — ONE THAT TREATED THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM!
Remember, in your search for a treatment program, not all rehab treatments are created equal, and they are not all appropriate for every addiction. I’m not here to promote any specific treatment centre. This isn’t propaganda. I just wanted y’all to know that there is help, there is hope, and it doesn’t come in the form of a pill. May you find your help, hope, and happiness. The truth is out there! — Jay Taylor, Calgary Alberta
