In the United States, over 150 people a day die from drug and alcohol related problems.

Two-thirds of homeless people report that drugs and/or alcohol were a major reason for their becoming homeless.

When addiction strikes, it strikes without warning. A dangerous road awaits those who don’t get help. People with drug and alcohol issues are in danger, tremendous danger.

As a doctor, a mother, and a concerned community member, I’ve seen first hand what drugs and alcohol can do:

  • Car accidents
  • jail time
  • loss of limbs
  • injuries
  • bankruptcy
  • overdose
  • homelessness
  • death

These are all things I see on a daily basis. It’s not a matter of if something tragic will happen. It’s a matter of when.

The vast majority of addicts will experience one of these consequences that I just mentioned.

It’s not unusual for me to see patients who have been:

  • gang-raped
  • shot
  • roofied
  • assaulted
  • have life-threatening diseases, such as cancer or liver disease, all because of using alcohol and drugs.

…It’s not unusual for me to see patients who have been gang-raped, shot, roofied, assaulted or have life-threatening diseases such as cancer or liver disease all because of using alcohol and drugs…

If you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction, there are two things you need to remember.

  1. Addiction is a disease. The addicted person does not just quit drugs or quit drinking as if by magic.
  2. Professional help is available. Treatment can save your job. It can save your relationship. It can even save your life.

Stick with me and I’ll talk to you about different treatment options, what would happen when you go to rehab and how to get in touch with the right people who can help you.

FACT:  An addict is going to need structured help in which they get therapy, support and even medical attention if needed. Only then can this person find a way to an empowered life.

I will also tell you a true story about a woman who waited to get help for a loved one, only to lose him a few days later to an overdose.

Please listen to this story closely and don’t make the same mistakes she did.

But before I tell you the story…

I want to share some exciting news that’ll make addiction treatment possible at little to no out-of-pocket cost to you.

First, let me introduce myself. My name is Sayeh Beheshti but you can call me Dr B.

I’m forty-five years old, I live in Southern California and I am a divorced mother of two.

I am also an addiction specialist and I have been helping people take their lives back from drugs and alcohol for many years.

After seeing hundreds of patients recover from addictions, I can tell you there is hope.

If you get into a treatment program and stick with it, you will find benefits that are far beyond what you can imagine.

Treatment offers a second chance at life, a new beginning.

If you want to avoid life-destroying events such as:

  • losing your job
  • divorce
  • losing your children
  • or killing someone in a car wreck
  • prison

Then treatment offers you that chance. Treatment can save lives!

I’ve had many people tell me that when they first started drinking, they had a lot of fun with it, but before they knew it, they had lost control over their drinking and it was the drinking that was controlling them.

…they had lost control over their drinking and it was the drinking that was controlling them…

They couldn’t do anything else when their urge to drink would strike them.

If you feel powerless against your drug of choice, if you feel that it has control over you, that you are a slave to it, think about how it would feel for you to be free from that.

Addiction takes away your freedom.

Take back your freedom Get Help with drugs and alcohol by calling 888-203-1691

Treatment gives you your freedom back. It gives you back the power and releases you from the life of slavery you’ve been living. Treatment can set you free and freedom is the most amazing feeling you can ever imagine.

Treatment can set you free and freedom is the most amazing feeling you can ever imagine.

Treatment can give you the tools to recover and thrive so you can no longer feel lost, confused and powerless over alcohol or drugs.

Why quitting on your own is a stupid idea

If you’ve ever been hit with a craving and you’ve been on your own, you know how hard it is to face it.

In a treatment center, you will have 24/7 support with someone there to hold your hand through the most painful times.

In a treatment center, you will have twenty-four hour support and someone will hold your hand through the hardest times.

Once you improve, you can start repairing all those relationships you’ve damaged. You can regain those people you lost. You can get a new career, get a new education. You can even start chasing down those dreams you’ve been neglecting for years and years.

Treatment always takes place in a safe environment where nobody will look down on you or judge you.

The life of an addict can be quite chaotic and when you check yourself into a treatment center, you can find that safety and tranquility you need to make improvement.

Imagine how great you will feel if you put yourself in an environment where you can work on yourself without the demands of family, without a dealer who wants to get paid, without a job that keeps putting pressures and deadlines on you?

Our Doctors can arrange for you to go on medical leave without your co-workers or boss knowing where you’re going.

As a doctor, I can arrange for you to go on medical leave without your co-workers or boss knowing where you’re going.

Imagine how freeing it would feel to be able to get out of work scot-free so you can get your life in order, once and for all?

There’s no one judging you, condemning you or even asking you where you’re going. If you feel unable to improve under your current circumstances, you’re not alone. No one should expect you to make massive life changes under so much pressure. It’s just not realistic.

…If you feel unable to improve under your current circumstances, you’re not alone. No one should expect you to make massive life changes under so much pressure. It’s just not realistic…

Real healing takes work and time.

If you decide to get treatment, I strongly recommend you look for a center that is a hundred percent physician owned and operated.

That’s the only way to be sure that your entire care from beginning to end is overseen by a physician.

We don’t care about your money or your insurance plan. We care about saving your life and giving you a new hope for a brighter tomorrow.

Did you know that we give grants and scholarships every month? We also help our patients get insurance if they don’t already have it.

Remember, it’s a hundred percent confidential and convenient and easy to get started because we will do all the paperwork for you.

Now let’s talk about the three different phases of rehabilitation.

How Detox Works
The first phase is called detox. In detox, you will enter a medical facility where you will be supervised and taken care of while your body goes through its first round of changes.

When you arrive at detox, the doctors and nurses will make sure that you get the rest, sleep and medication that you might need to get through this initial phase.

Their job is to simply make you as comfortable as possible while making sure that your body is not threatened by the detox process.

The Rehab Process

The second phase is called rehabilitation.

For most people, it takes about thirty to ninety days.

For this phase, you can choose to go to a residential program where you live there and you have the program at the same time, or you can choose to go to the sober living facility and do a day program.

I have found in my experience that both methods work equally effectively.

In the beginning, you will need a high level of supervision and structure. You’ll want to spend as many hours as possible in therapy sessions and positive healing activities.

As you progress, you will gain more and more of the skills and the tools that you need in order to live a drug and alcohol free life.

As you gain more and more skills, you will feel more confident and you will realize that you can re-enter the outside world.

The Aftercare Phase

The third phase is called maintenance or aftercare.

In maintenance, you need to continue the good habits that you’ve developed so far. You can go to some meetings every week or continue therapy in order to maintain these habits.

There are some good programs out there such as Smart Recovery or Alcoholics Anonymous that can help you greatly with this process.

These are the three phases of recovery:

  1. Detox
  2. Rehabilitation
  3. Aftercare

If you’re not sure where to begin, just call and we can help. Call 888-203-1691 and you will connect with a detox and rehab coordinator who can answer all your questions.

Did you know that there are laws in place that make it possible for you to get treatment at little to no cost to you?

The two laws I’m talking about are the Affordable Care Act or ObamaCare and the Mental Health Parity Act.

The Affordable Care Act makes it possible for people who never had insurance before to finally get insurance. You may not believe it but it’s easier than you think.

The Mental Health Parity Act requires insurance companies to treat mental health and addiction issues as seriously as they would treat surgeries and doctor visits.

What this means for you or your loved ones is that help is easier to get and more affordable than it’s ever been before.

Maybe you’re in a situation where you know you need treatment but you’re worried about the cost or taking time off work or about leaving your obligations.

If that’s the case, please stay tuned with us and we’ll cover all of those scenarios.

Her Boyfriend Died of An Overdose

A few years ago, a young woman called me. She was very worried about her boyfriend who had just relapsed back into using drugs and alcohol.

I told her to call his family.

I urged her to call his family because I was worried about him too, but…

she didn’t want to tell on him, so she decided to wait.

He kept getting worse and worse. She finally decided to call them.

Then two days after she called, he died of an overdose.

This is the kind of story I hear way too often. It reminds us all that we need to get help right away, that waiting can be fatal. If you have a loved one who is in crisis, please, please, don’t wait.

If you’re not a family member, maybe you’re someone who suffers from alcoholism or addiction yourself and you just don’t feel ready to quit yet.

  • Will you be ready after you wake up in the hospital, after a motor vehicle accident?
  • Will you be ready for Child Protective Services to come and take away your kids?
  • Will you be ready for your loved one to leave or files for a divorce?
  • Will you be ready when you lose your job?
  • Will you be ready for prison?

I have so many patients come in and tell me they wish they had changed sooner. They wish they had sought help when it would have made a difference in their families.

It’s funny how addiction works. Your mind plays tricks on you. It may tell you, “Oh, things aren’t so bad. Oh, I have things under control. Oh, another drink won’t hurt.”

It’s only when your life starts crashing down around you, when you start thinking that things have gone wrong.

Don’t let denial fool you. Don’t wait to get help. Don’t wait until you hurt yourself or seriously hurt someone else.

If you’re worried about who’s going to take care of your kids or your pets while you go away to rehab, let me tell you this…

If you keep going on like this, you won’t be able to take care of them much longer anyway, and then who is going to take care of them?

If you can’t take care of yourself, how do you expect to take care of your children and pets?

Losing your kids is not a joke. I see it all the time. If you’re an addict and your life is spinning out of control around you, Child Protective Services will take your children away.

Animal control will come and take your animals away.

Give them the life they deserve, a life where their caretaker is living well and free of addictions.

Some people are afraid of the embarrassment of going to rehab.

They’re afraid what their family or friends may think when they find out they went to rehab.

First of all, remember that this process is a hundred percent confidential. When I put you on medical leave, I do not state the reason for the medical leave.

It is your privacy right to keep that to yourself. Your job or your friends do not need to know why.

The fear of humiliation should never stop you from doing what you know is right.

  • How many times have you already humiliated yourself because of your drug addiction or alcoholism?
  • How many times have you woken up not remembering anything you did the night before and then you get these calls from people telling you all these catastrophically embarrassing and humiliating things that you did and that you can’t even recall?

I bet you you’ve done things that are way more humiliating than checking into rehab. If you’re worried about what your family and friends are going to think, I’ve got news for you.

Your family and friends already know you’re an addict.

You’re not fooling anyone.

Addicts think they can fool the entire world. They can’t.

Your family and friends are just playing along. They know. Believe me, they know.

Your family and friends will respect you much more when you get better. That’s the bottom line.

Maybe you think your problem is not that bad or that you can beat this on your own.

If you’re not that bad, then why are you surfing the Internet looking for information on addiction?

Why have you read this entire 3000 word article?

You need help. You know you need help.

Don’t let your denial fool you.

Let me give you one simple test..

If you’re not sure if you have a problem, then ask your family and friends.

Tell them to be honest with you.

When you have an addiction, it’s easy to lose perspective, I understand that.

No one will judge you for getting treatment.

Being in denial is something my counselors and I understand very well and we will help you find ways to be more honest with yourself in the future.

Living in the real world can be a beautiful place.

Denial on the other hand can be very scary.

The truth can pop up at any moment and ruin your day.

If you’re worried about the cost of rehab, I’d like you to weigh it against the cost of maintaining your alcoholism or addiction.

  • How much money have you already spent cleaning up your messes?
  • How much money have you spent on drugs or alcohol?
  • How much money have you lost by damaging your job or underachieving in it?

Think about all the money you will make if you can focus on your career instead of your next fix.

Remember, a significant portion of your cost or even maybe your entire cost can be covered by insurance. Even if you don’t have insurance, call us and we’ll help you get one. Just pick up the phone and call 888-203-1691 and we’ll discuss your options.
