Beginning again…my truth

It’s been a whirlwind of changes these past 4 years in recovery. I’ve been trying my best to roll with the punches and move on! My past will always be what it was, I can’t change it!

Repeating it is not an option, so here I am, moving on. I’m hoping my messages of hope, love, kindness and redemption are heard, especially by the ones still sick and suffering and their families that are living in that dark world with them!

The start up of me abusing drugs was something I swore I’d never do…I had been married to an addict and knew firsthand how that could destroy a family! I had been to ALANON meetings to help me understand his addiction and know it wasn’t my fault for his bad decisions. How was I to know I’d one day put my family and loved ones in that same dark place? It was shocking to them that I had become a junkie!

Holidays or family get togethers at my parents home had become uncomfortable, with everyone walking on eggshells around me…and I was most times too high or in the process of getting high to even care.

Looking back now, I see the worry and age I had put in my parents eyes….I’m very grateful they never gave up …this means a lot to me!

Although I made amends with whomever I had disrespected and hurt..not all were ready and willing to accept my apologies. They are expecting me to relapse and repeat my mistakes. I can’t change their feelings toward me, but I can leave that situation in God’s hands, His will be done in His time, not mine! He knows my heart and my relationship with Him is powerful and 100% truth! He’s helped me see my worth, telling me to do my best and that He will never leave my side.

My eyes are open to who I am and it’s a brand-new, peaceful and compassionate me. I’m someone that I am proud to be..no longer hiding behind drugs and chaos. My wall has come down and I let others know I have been in that bad space and if they reach out, wanting to leave it all behind them, they can make it out too!

No, I’m not the same person I was before addiction. Who I’m becoming is the one God planned for me to be….trustworthy, respectful, and humbled by His grace! My prayers are full of praise and gratefulness. I take each day and I’m happy within…the empty spots I once filled with drugs are now occupied with joy and the need to help others. Service work keeps me grounded…

Seeing the blessings God has so willingly gave to me pushes me to do for others, all I can, when II can , and because I can! I do not and will not let my past define me…it’s a lesson I use to let everyone know they have a chance to be a better person, a chance to show themselves they don’t have to remain in addiction! The best time to begin again is now! We aren’t promised tomorrow, so make the present count!

Chasing of the dragon

My name is Tom Garcia. I am a grateful recovering addict/alcoholic with a little over 19 years of continuous sobriety.
Tom Garcia

Tom Garcia SFYM Author

 I am still active in my recovery with a passion for helping others in the fight against addiction. For most of my time in recovery I focused on helping people get a start in recovery and keeping them on the path. I’ve had some incredible success stories, and as anyone knows in this business, there have been some tragic outcomes.

Recently I added a new dimension to my service work. Back in October, 2016,  I discovered a group called HALO,Helping All Lives Overcome. The group was founded by a long time friend of mine, Karen Vied. Halo focuses on the families that have a loved one active in addiction. It also includes people who have lost loved ones to this terrible disease.

When I heard of my old friend’s efforts, I contacted her and told her I would like to join the group. My instincts told me that these family members must have a lot of questions that they need answers to, and as we all know, the communication between an active addict and a frightened loved one usually doesn’t work out too well. I told Karen that I would like to offer insight from the addicts perspective. I believe the only consistent difference between two addicts is their fingerprints, therefore I felt qualified to offer some help.

I also believe that knowledge is power. Many parents and spouses who are not addicts find it impossible to understand the mindset of the addict.

That is where I would come in, and I did..From the first meeting I attended, members were finding relief in our conversations. Where they once had only fear, they now also had some understanding. They are rarely over joyed with my input, but they do develop some strength through hope.

So, that is what I do  as a member of this incredible group.

I’ve been a small time singer/musician for a very long time. I thought a group song would be cool to have. You know, something we could walk around singing or humming under our breath  that would relate to our cause.I initially thought about the Eagles song DESPERADO. The lyrics are a perfect fit for addiction. I originally thought that the song was written by the Eagles in reference to Joe Walsh who was in a deep addiction for some time. After investigating that, I found that it was not about addiction at all. That’s a shame because lyrically it is a masterpiece.

So then I decided to write a song myself. I came up with somewhat of a melody, but I struggled with the lyrics. I spent a couple weeks trying to come up with the right catchy phrase. No luck.Then I came up with a brainstorm.

I thought I would ask the members of the group to help. So I sent out a group message asking members to send me, in one sentence form, feelings or thoughts that they wanted to voice to the addict in their life, but never had the courage to. Many people hold back their true feelings, fearing that expressing them would push the addict even farther away. Some lost their loved ones before they had the chance. I mentioned that I was working on a project, but I did not tell them it was a song.

In less than twenty-four hours, I had sixty-one responses. It was overwhelming. I was deeply moved by what they said.

Over the next couple months, I arranged, paraphrased and, using my poetic license, organized them into a song. The song consists of real feelings from real people in the battle. It deals with the anger, the fear, the guilt, the sadness, the hopelessness, and, in my opinion, the greatest affect of addiction, the isolation. Families left in the path of addiction feel so alone because of the shame and the inability to reach the person that they love with all their heart.

The message of this song is aimed to ease that isolated feeling. Hearing your pent up feelings expressed by someone else has a liberating affect. I know a key to my own recovery was hearing someone that had the same experiences that I had. I always thought I was the only one.

The song also deals with that line in the sand families reach where they finally recognize that they have been enabling the addict, and now it is time to detach, with love of course. This proves to be a very difficult time for most.

The title of the song refers to the chasing of the dragon, which is the continued effort to achieve the euphoric feeling of that first high. I was profoundly influenced after I watched the FBI documental “Chasing The Dragon”. I met Katrina King, who was a main character in that movie, at a screening of the film at a HALO meeting. I had the honor and privilege of singing the song for her that day. We are now friends.

And last, but certainly not least, I owe everything to my partner Elliott Eldridge who put this song together, played all the instruments and recorded it. He is amazing.

So listen to this powerful message, feel the emotion of the people who are living it, and please share it. It is intended to help heal.

Hey Tom I loved this song. Godspeed with it man… Tks@R for sharing

[via press release from A&E] A&E NETWORK TO PREMIERE NEW SEASON OF EMMY(R) AWARD-WINNING DOCUSERIES “INTERVENTION” ON MONDAY, JULY 31 AT 9 PM ET/PT

 “DOPE MAN,” A BRAND NEW HOUR-LONG SPECIAL THAT TAKES AN IN-DEPTH LOOK AT THE UNEXPECTED FACE OF ADDICTION, IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWS AT 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY – June 29, 2017 – A&E Network’s Emmy(R) Award-winning and critically-acclaimed docuseries “Intervention” returns with all-new episodes, bringing attention to the enormous social, economic and environmental cost of addiction. Immediately following is the premiere of “Dope Man,” a chilling yet profoundly hopeful look at the unexpected face of addiction through the eyes of Tim Ryan, an ex-con and recovering heroin addict. The special follows Tim, who while battling demons of his own, is on mission to help others overcome their addiction in an unconventional and inspiring way. “Intervention” and “Dope Man” premiere on Monday, July 31 at 9 PM ET/PT and 10 PM ET/PT respectively on A&E.

“Intervention” profiles people whose uncontrollable addiction to drugs, alcohol or compulsive behavior has brought them to the brink of destruction and has devastated their family and friends.

This season features Tanisha, a formerly successful young woman whose heroin-addicted mother introduced her to the drug after a devastating personal loss; Katherine, an abduction and rape victim who turned to a deadly mix of drugs, alcohol and prostitution to cope with the pain; Shiann, who faced with a lifetime’s worth of pain at a young age, spiraled into deep depression and meth addiction after the unexpected divorce from her husband, among many other stories. Interventionists Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan, Ken Seeley, Donna Chavous and former series subject and “Intervention” success story Sylvia Parsons return to present these individuals with a life-changing opportunity of treatment and recovery.

“Dope Man” follows Tim Ryan, an ex-con and former addict, who before embracing recovery, lost his son to heroin and nearly died from it himself. Now, in an era when addicts are dying faster and younger by the day, he’s made it his life’s mission to save others from the deadly drug. Tim’s unforgiving, in-your-face approach, as well as his commitment to placing people into meaningful long-term treatment, has singled him out nationally among politicians, law enforcement officials and educators as one of the most effective experts in his field.

“Intervention” is produced for A&E by GRB Entertainment. Executive producers for GRB Entertainment are Gary R. Benz and Tom Greenhut. Executive producers for A&E Network are Shelly Tatro and Brad Holcman. A+E Networks holds worldwide distribution rights for “Intervention.”

Addiction and heroin abuse didn’t make Tim Ryan a better person, but recovery has redeemed his years.

Substance abuse of heroin and alcohol stole more than half his life. But he has dedicated every waking minute since walking out of prison to dealing hope to addicts and their families. As a recovering addict, Tim is now known as The Hope Dealer. He’s also a successful entrepreneur, a nationally ranked barefoot water skier—and a truth-talking, convicted felon. Tim has been a featured thought-leader in numerous national media, including USA Today, Newsweek, and on “The Steve Harvey Show.” He was an invited guest to the 2016 State of the Union Address. • As a business leader in a high-tech industry, Tim made and lost millions. • As a father and husband, Tim paved the way for his own son to use deadly drugs. • As a heroin addict, Tim is a walking miracle. He has overdosed eight times, was pronounced clinically dead three times, and suffered two minor heart attacks. He has been arrested more than ten times and served prison time alongside known gang leaders—many of whom became his closest confidants in recovery. • As the founder of A Man in Recovery Foundation and motivational speaker, Tim’s mission is to help one addict at a time transform their lives from dope to hope. This story chronicles Tim’s grueling journey into addiction, loss, and recovery. Sit with Tim in his prison cell. Walk with him as loved ones are torn from his reach. Rejoice with him as lives are miraculously recovered. “This is the addict’s journey: how it happens, how it progresses, and how it ends. Fortunately, this is also the journey of recovery: how it happens, and how it blossoms. There is always hope.” —”Dr. Drew” Pinsky, M.D.

The Business of Recovery VS. The Business of Relapse

After 12 years of the working in the field of addictions, I’ve come to the conclusion there are two different things taking place. There is the business of recovery and the business of relapse. Which business are you in? Which business do you want for you or your loved one?

 

saul kane

Saul Kane – SFYB Author/Advisory Board

The business of RELAPSE looks like this

A) It’s massive, the bed count that is… Addiction is a disease of separation, it’s a disease of isolation and one that quiets the individual. There’s false pride involved and the disease doesn’t want you to reach out for help. When facilities start to eclipse 100+ beds how can someone not slip through the cracks? How can someone be vulnerable and open in a community of 100+ strangers?

As an addict I want to blend in, I’m a chameleon and I can be whatever you want me to be. This becomes so much easier when more people are around. How does someone get the individual attention they so so desperately need with so many patients passing through?

B) The outreach team or call center always tries to place you in the treatment center they represent first. Addiction often comes with co-occurring disorders, sexual issues and many others factors that should be determined before the patient is accepted. A pulse and a PPO should not be the only factors in determining whether a patient is right for a particular facility. The outreach team and the call center should place people in accordance with those co-occurring disorder, in other words when they run across a female patient that has sexual promiscuity issues she shouldn’t be accepted into a mixed gender facility, the same goes for mental health issues, eating disorders etc.

C) The treatment center has back door handshakes, side deals and is closed to referring out appropriately. Treatment center XYZ only refers to XYZ aftercare facility because they know XYZ aftercare facility will refer them a certain amount of patients per month, will refer the patient back when they relapse and or they share services such as own a lab together or they rent/lease property together. This is a large part of what has happened in south Florida, you’d be astounded if I told you some of the partnerships I know of and how they work.

D) Levels of care are dictated by insurance. A patient is only to be given a certain amount of days in each level of care by the insurance company. The patient is then dropped to a lower level of care by the treatment center despite what their therapist and or clinical team believes the patient needs because not as much money is being collected.

E) The clinical team is under qualified. Doctors, LMHC’s and Psychologists are signing charts for groups being ran by someone who may be well intentioned but can often times have little more then a GED.

F) There’s no 12-step immersion program. I don’t mean this bullshit you read about the “twelve step model doesn’t work”. I mean a program that literally immerses patients in the twelve steps through the Book word for word line by line. Not a program that “Takes patients to outside meetings or has meetings brought in”. I said it. After a dozen years working in this field my experience is men and women who work all 12 steps continue to take other people thru them, have a sponsor, hit a couple of regular meetings regularly, take an inventory and have a higher power in their life are sober, while almost everyone else is not. Do the 12 steps work for everyone? No, not everyone can grasp a manner of living which demands such rigorous honesty but, my experience is for most people they do work.

All of these factors and more make for a poor quality treatment episode and almost always add up to a relapse. Most facilities as described above, thoughts are “The best client is a repeat client”… That’s a true statement when you’re selling cars not when you’re dealing with the number one killer in the United States of people under the age of 50.

The Business of RECOVERY looks like this:

A) It’s under 60 beds. Groups are effective because the therapist to patient ratio is well balanced, groups are often ran with no more than 12 people per group. Often times groups can be separated by gender and or sexual orientation several times throughout the week. Patients get to know one another and or their therapist in a smaller group and will find it harder to “chameleon” or just blend in and they will confronted on underlying causes and conditions. Patients don’t go unnoticed and are not treated as a number.

B) Both the outreach team and the call center places patients appropriately because they understand they cannot treat everyone who knocks on their door for help. They are well versed and educated in mental health disorders and do a lengthy pre assessment to determine whether they can truly help the individual looking for treatment and if they are not they can make an educated referral based on the client’s needs not based on a reciprocal relationship founded in profit or the “swapping of bodies”.

C) The facility is transparent about relationships, and why they work with other facilities. When a patient is referred out to another facility whether it’s because of a therapeutic discharge or whether they couldnt take the patient to begin with it is never for monetary gain, but rather because it is the best fit for the patient. I’ve seen people discharge patients because they we promiscuous with the opposite sex only to refer them to a mixed gender facility again… SHADY.

D) Levels of care are always determined by the clinical team. No matter what the insurance is paying, if the clinical team knows the patient is not ready to step down, then they stay in a higher level of care. Someone’s life should never, ever be determined by a stranger at an insurance company trying to save their corporation a few thousand dollars.

E) There is a full 12 step immersion program. As previously mentioned, everyone I know who is sober was at bare minimum introduced to the 12 steps. There’s this common delusion going around the medical community that 12 steps programs don’t work. This delusion is based on treatment programs that drive their patients to meetins, which are absolutely NOT the program of recovery. The meetings are the fellowship of people in recovery, the program is found in the literature. Most patients I work with and mind you several of them have been to over 6-7 rehabs HAVE NEVER WORKED THE STEPS or even heard of the program of recovery in the meetings or in rehab!

I could add to this article all day. This is just a few of the glaring issues that stick out. I hope families and those that suffer from addiction find it useful.

Ramses statute made with bear skin rugs and stone knives right

Robert Henslee

Robert Henslee

Precision-made Ramses II face has visible machine tool marks, according to mechanical engineer Chris Dunn. He has found fine machine tool marks inside the nostrils and on the face. One side of the face is a perfect mirror image of the other side, according to measurements made by Chris Dunn. Despite incredible smooth detail, a rectangular depression is visible from below the center of the nose to the upper lip which is interesting. We do not see this with human beings.

Why would the ancients choose to use granite ­ perhaps the hardest, most difficult rock to work with? How did they move all these monuments 500 miles across the sand-filled desert without roads? Granite is one of the hardest natural stones on the planet. Sculptors today prefer to work in marble. Clearly none of these monuments were made using crude copper tools and hammers.

Even if artists at the time had the skill to wield chisels to achieve this level of artistry, any copper tool used on granite would bounce off or slip sideways when struck with a hammer. Use of hand tools does not explain machine-tool marks. Just Saying.
