A Flaw In The System

kicked outWhat happens if a client relapses while in residential treatment, or at sober living? If caught, they are expelled, of course. So now let me see if I understand this right- a client displays a symptom of his condition (that is, the addict is using drugs) but then as a result, treatment is halted and the client is cast to the wind. Even if the client admits to using- even if he or she volunteers the information- even if he or she wants to get back on track right away…too bad, they’re kicked out regardless- a brutal consequence if you ask me. Clearly, there’s a flaw in the system.

brokenheartMy heart breaks every time I get that dreaded call- “Sorry Madeleine, we had to kick Alison out for using drugs. She’s on a Greyhound bus back to Los Angeles- should arrive at the skid row station, about midnight.” Wow…are you kidding me?????????? What ever happened to ‘do no harm’, ’empathy’, and stuff like that?

ladderI am tired of seeing my daughter kicked down to the bottom rung of the ladder once again, based on this one taboo act. It’s a more than just a setback. But I hold no power in these areas. All I can do is encourage a life of balance, for both the addict and the addict’s mom, and suggest incorporating the following into your lives, to much benefit:

  • Daily health practices such as juicing, oil pulling (swishing), and 5 rites
  • For cravings, use the homeopathic remedies Avena sativa, Tobaccum, or Nux vomica. You may dowse for the best pick, if you are not sure what to use.
  • Keep busy, preferably in a giving capacity. Doing for others fills idle time and has great rewards…try it sometime.
  • Study astrology and numerology, which are amazing tools for getting to know yourself.
  • Make a Sai Sanjeevini mega remedy to include patterns for addiction, right conduct, and dignified housing, and charge your drinking water with it for a dose every time you drink water or cook rice or pasta.

There is no cure all for addiction and even with all the marvelous healing tools we have, in the end, it takes the will of the addict, to finally overcome.overcome
