Anxiety Disorders that Co-Occur With Substance Abuse

Anxiety Disorders that 

Co-Occur With Substance Abuse

At one point  in my life, I was respected 
as a man with a solid character. 
Today I'm  so beat down from  drugs and alcohol 
I've fallen into a pit of despair.  

The combination of opiates, benzos, suboxone, 
and beer has crushed me.


I have been committed to psych ward twice in 4 months. I really cant remember those details. 
Anxiety to Peace of mind

Dual diagnosis 

alcoholic agoraphobia 

Newport Beach California



Mentally and spiritually I was bankrupt. 

I had no purpose in life, no moral compass to guide me. 

I grew up in a church and I know right from wrong, good from bad. but those values and virtues had long gone. 

All lost in my addiction. 

Buried deep in my subconscious was a mustard seed of grace attached to my conscience. 

My morality had become chained up in my addiction. I was living as though their was no God.
I truly felt soulless and lost, empty.



Mentally confused,  I couldn't make a decision on any of my life issues at hand.  

When pressed to make decisions I'd spend hours laboring over this process fueling enough anxiety to manifest night sweats.  

I had lost all confidence in myself.

All self esteem had left me some time ago. 
I hid in my house with the curtains drawn. 

I didn't have enough courage to walk to the mailbox. 

I was afraid of my mail and I was sure my neighbors were watching me. 

In my mind, I was the crazy neighbor 
everyone avoided. 

The phone was no longer a tool for success and happiness. My phone was now a source of pain. Whenever it rang I shuttered.  

I couldn't face anything outside. 

I learned later that this is a dual diagnosis issue called alcoholic agoraphobia.  

I was living this way for months and the mustard seed in my mind was causing me grief. 
It had a voice and some mornings when I'd come too ... that voice was the first thing I heard. 
It said you're better than this and you need to make changes and save yourself. 

I'd pray my fox hole prayers. 

One morning I checked my email.
That day a friend sent me a link to Dual Diagnosis Drug Rehab program. 
Wits Inn Recovery I checked out the site. 
It looked promising so I called the number. 

The guy who answered was perfect, 
he understood my suffering 
and he had a message of hope 
that I connected with. 

The next day I was on a plane to 
Wits Inn Recovery for medical detox 
and 30 days of residential treatment. 

It was fun. 
Newport Beach is a great place for a Treatment program. 
The Beach Cities area of Orange County California. 
Located on the coast 
between Los Angeles and San Diego.

Good medications for the detox made it ok. 

I wasn't rushed through my detox, and I wasn't all drugged up for the therapy part. 
As a pill connoisseur myself, I felt they knew what they were doing with the detox meds. 
It wasn't a picnic, but slept through most of the detox time and was comfortable. (I also panic about detox)
But this experience worked out better than I ever expected. 

If you are suffering mental anguish and despair you can call the number 949-292-2000 just to talk to the counselor and check out what can be done to help you. The rehab can be paid with insurance or cash.

Post-acute 

withdrawal syndrome

I'm in this guys office crying like a fucking baby and I'm completely lost. He's selling me faith and hope and I can't grasp any of it. 

I'm just not interested in anything he's telling me. 
I'm crying, I'm lost and I haven't 
an ounce of hope to cling to.  

It's my third day in rehab and my mental well being is non existent. This guys office I'm in is my new counselor and I don't fucking like him.

I'm scared the life I've know is lost and I'm out of options. I'm in so much fear I can't focus on anything positive. I can't see my way out of this and I'm generally an optimist. I'm feeling like this is the end. 
I really don't know how I'll recover 
from my last run.

I'm just out of medical detox and I guess you could say my spirits are down.

I'm completely alone in a rehab full of strangers 2500 miles from home and I'm not looking to make new friends. However, they did put me up in a nice place near the beach. It was a single family home in a nice neighborhood. They  used it for the men in treatment. Thank God I had a room to myself. At this point in my life I didn't like anyone and I'm stuck in a house with a bunch of fresh addiction with a cherry on top, The cherry was the crazy house manager and of course we butted heads. 

He had rules and I wasn't interested. 

My mind wasn't my friend these days. It wouldn't let me sleep but wanted me to stay in bed all day. It robbed me of my desire and strength to shower and shave. Any personal hygiene was painful labor. I didn't care if I lived or died. Remember? I'm hopeless like never before. I later learned I was in PAWS Post-acute withdrawal syndrome. 


Change you thinking 

to change your experience 

Fast forward two weeks... 

I'm back in my counselor Ricks office. 

We are discussing my issues and he's telling me about spiritual concepts. 

He's using words like acceptance, pain, courage and growth as concepts I could apply to escape my drug induced, self imposed paralysis.

I grabbed the word courage, It resonated with me. I fancied myself as a man with courage or at least I had courage before my addiction ravaged all the good in my life. 

He read a passage from the big book of Alcoholics Anonymous that read " Throughout the ages men of faith were men of courage and they never apologize for their God"  Those words spoke to me, I could use that in my life. I needed a flag to fight for! I needed a cause to rally behind! My flag would be God and the cause I'd rally for would be my own sobriety, This was my first spiritual experience. 

I'd made growth through courage. 
The idea that I could be a soldier for my higher power and I could rebuild my personal character gave me a spark. 

Hope had cracked my armor and I started to feel Grace warm my veins. I  was on my way.

This was the beginning of a wonderful life of sobriety. 
I stayed in rehab 90 days and had many more wonderful moments of clarity. 
I gained the tools necessary to live a life of love and fulfillment. 

My greatest gift was the one of sobriety and how it lead me to a purpose driven life.

Today I have everything to live for. 
It's not all peaches and cream but I have the balance I need to meet any obstacle I might face.

Does alcoholism cause divorce?

I'm getting divorce for the fourth time and I don't understand why. 
My last wife was wonderful and I couldn't  keep her.

She told me I had two weeks to get into treatment or she was gone.
I didn't take her at her word. That was a mistake. She left me.
Relationship Between Alcoholism And Divorce

Does Alcoholism Cause Divorce 


It started while we dated before we married. I was taking pain pills and hiding it. I would get up in the morning and leave with little explanation. 

She was always confused as to why I had to split and if she pressed me about it I got pissy and abrupt. I always had some lame reason as to why i was leaving or where I was going. Looking back my behavior was so cruel. In the morning I'd wake up in bed with her only to run off no sooner than my feet hit the ground. One night I left at 11 pm. I said someone called to say I left a light on in my other house.. what a stupid excuse, my wife was a bright woman. She likely thought I was cheating on her and I was... but not with a woman. Pain pills were my lover now.

So she left and I'm all alone in the house. The home I bought for my new wife, my new life. I should have known my drug use would kill my marriage.  Just as it did with the three marriages prior. My life was a train wreck and the drugs were at the controls of the runaway locomotive.

Suicidal Alcoholic  Call 949-292-2000 

Alcoholism leads to suicidal depression
Alcoholism can lead to
Suicidal Depression 

Now It was just me and my dog Jack. I wanted to kill myself. 
I had a pistol and I played with it as I sat on the floor drinking contemplating my latest screw up. Me, my dog, pills, booze and a pistol.. what could possibly go wrong?

I wanted to end my misery. One bullet was all it would take. All I could think about now was my dog Jack, If I shot myself what would become of Jack? It would likely be days before anyone found me and during that time my bloody body would be Jacks last memory of his trusted companion.. 
I couldn't do Jack that way.


I just couldn't let Jack see my bloody corpse. My dog Jack saved my life. The following morning I received a call from Wits Inn recovery. Apparently my wife had reached out to them and asked if they could help. That day I was receptive to their message. They said I was a sick man , not a bad man and they could help me recover from my hopeless situation. I told them how Jack prevented me from taking my own life. 

California alcohol treatment

Dog Friendly Rehab California 

The Wits Inn said I could bring Jack to treatment and that sealed the deal for me. I could do this with my friend Jack. Jack was the inspiration I needed to get clean and sober. I wanted to be the man Jack wanted and needed me to be. 


The Wits inn call was a God shot and I was ready to take my life back. 
The next morning Jack I were on a flight to southern California to get well.

Alcoholic Intervention California

I can't stop drinking

Intervention saved my life       949-292-2000

i can't stop drinking

 Alcoholic Intervention California 

The cops are pulling me over and I'm drunk. It started hours ago when I decided It would be ok to drink again. My drinking was causing me problems. I wanted to ignore all the signs but my denial was turning to guilt and shame. . My wife was on me bad, she hated me when I drank. When I drank I was so unpredictable, some days I was a happy drunk but then there were times I could get mean. When I started drinking I never knew where I’d end up. I was a blackout drinker. My family was tired of making excuses for my behavior. My boss was losing his patience with my declining productivity. I knew my drinking was a problem but I couldn't stop. For years alcohol had been my friend. Not any longer .. my friend was becoming a nightmare.

I can't stop drinking
It was a saturday morning and I came to after a night of drinking beer and whiskey shooters. Like most mornings after drinking I'd come to..  my eyes popped wide open and then my brain switched right to fear. I'd be in fear and panic as I tried to reconstruct the events from the night before. In a second, In my mind, I ran down my checklist from the night before.  Where did I go ? Who did I see? Did I drive? Where is my car? Was my car damaged?   Did I hit anything or anyone? Panic consumed me until I knew the answers..


On this morning I walked into the kitchen for coffee and my house was full of people. 
My wife, my children, my mom and two people I didn't recognise. 
I was hung over and looking for some of “the hair of the dog” to steady my shakes. 
A shot in my coffee helped me to start my day. 
My bottle wasn't in the normal place and I was beginning to panic. 
People in my home, no booze. I wanted to know what's happening..


It was an intervention.. I was mortified and insulted.. how could they do this to me? 
Three hours later I was driving with the interventionist on my way to a medical detox and residential drug and alcohol treatment center.


Residential treatment saved my life. The medical detox was safe and painless. In treatment I made good friends with people just like me. I discovered that all the horrible things I did drinking and the secrets I kept were not as horrible as I made them out to be. The other people in treatment were doing and feeling all the same things I was. I wasn’t alone in my pain. For years I thought I was alone with my anguish and my secrets that couldn't be shown the light of day. My secrets  were just too bad to say out loud. In treatment I found the other people had the same problems I did. Some had worse problems than me.  Together in treatment we got sober and tackled the issues that were keeping us drunk.


Today I have 3 years clean and a wonderful life. I got my family back and a promotion at work. The intervention and treatment saved my life. If this story sounds familiar, we can help you too. Please call us at the Wits Inn.  949.292.2000. www.wirecovery.com

Can't Stop Drinking Orange County


Can't Stop Drinking Orange County

I had tried to stop drinking many times, always just cold turkey and AA meetings. I could never stay stopped for very long. Friends and family told me I needed detox followed with residential drug and alcohol treatment and I always resisted. I could do this I told myself. One summer after my divorce, a divorce I created out of my drunken behavior I had to move back in with my mom. I was 35 and broken. I went back to AA and was staying sober but something wasn't right.That summer I met an old friend from my childhood. I told her I didn't drink and we started dating. A month into it she invited me to join her at her friends wedding in Chicago. All along I was attending 1 or 2 A A meetings a week and doing OK .. So I thought.

I always got drunk at the worst possible times.

So now I'm in Chicago and we’re walking into the reception with an open bar. The next morning I came to in a panic. I was in a hotel room, alone and half dressed.I got up and found my friend who happen to to be in the a room next door. I had blacked out.. again. Apparently I was out of control at the reception and at some point someone called security on me. I remembered very little from the night before but I knew it was bad. My friend was so upset and the long drive home was a nightmare. I was so ashamed of my behavior. This was me… I always got drunk at the worst possible times. When we got back home I called a residential treatment center and the next day I was on a plane. It was the best decision I've ever made. I couldn't get sober on AA alone. I needed all the tools residential treatment had to offer.

I needed to extract myself from my life, and drinking, to save my life.

Residential Treatment gave me a chance at sobriety. When I arrived they put me thru a medical detox. I flew to a treatment center in warm climate which helped my depression tremendously . Flying to treatment California was a great idea . The sun was shining and I was miles away from all my triggers and playmates. I needed to extract myself from my life to save my life. The detox was painless and when I started treatment I knew I was in the right place. My therapist was so insightful and helped me navigate my issues. The issues that were keeping me drunk and spiritually bankrupt.

Today I have 3 years sober and I live life to the fullest. If you can't stay stopped when you try to stop drinking they can help,. Call Wits Inn Recovery. (949) 292-2000.

“Now I know it wasn't you who held me down

Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free

So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains

And we never even know we have the key”



When a problem arises we do one of two things. 
We deny the problem. 

Or we do some research and seek help.
How do we know we are in denial 

Everyone has issues!!
If people who love you tell you to get help, take it seriously.
                                           
Don't try to stop drinking on your own
 Medical detox is so much better
Don't try to stop on your own
Another thing we can do when a problems arise is place Blame. 

“If you were married to him, you would drink too.” 

“How am I supposed to put up with the inappropriate things at work.” 

Do you know what they did to me?

How do we know if we need help? 


Ask the sober & saner people in our lives. 

Everyone needs recovery, not just the addicts and alcoholics. 
When we are physically sick or emotionally uncomfortable, 
we need to recover. 
To reach for a higher state of being. 

If we have trust issues, 
guilt, 
isolate, 
have self-doubt, 
become people pleasers, 
we can change. 

Recovery is God’s answer to brokenness.

Step one of the 12 steps of Alcoholics Anonymous says, 

“We admitted we were powerless over alcohol and our lives had become unmanageable.” 

Replace the word alcohol with whatever the issue…Drugs, guilt, self-doubt, people pleasing, etc. 

Admittance is acknowledging the struggle in inside. 

Second, we seek out a safe setting for support.             

We need a space where being judged is not likely.  
Our issues were created from broken relationships. 
We get healed with healthy relationships.

Third, we deal with the damage. 

We think we can heal with our will power. 

It is our will that gets us into trouble. 

Will power doesn't work. 
New Year’s Resolutions last an average of 6 weeks. 
How many times have we said, 
“Just one beer tonight.” 

Fruit trees go bad because of a “root” problem. In recovery, 
we get to the damaged roots. 

At the end of will power, God is waiting for us with His grace. 

Finally, we heal the root. Our roots get damaged because of unhealthy relationships. In recovery, we discover the damaged root and take actions which heal those roots.


In the real world, many issues disqualify us from society’s club. 
Alcoholism and drug addiction are issues which can boot us out of the club. 

Medicine assisted detox
Things can be different and we can change. 
But it takes action.

Nothing Great Happens When You Hold Back.
