Drug and Alcohol Rehab 




Dependent populations living on Social Security Drug addicts and mental illness

Dependent populations living on Social Security Drug addicts and mental illness 

Public confidence in Social Security is of utmost importance. We should strive to create a system which protects Social Security's financial solvency and promotes equity.  If you have an addict in your family, now is the time to get them help, do all you can as a family to keep them in treatment. Even if you know they would drink or use if they were not living in a structure. Any clean time helps. Extended drug and alcohol use creates mental illness, which creates a great burden on the family and society.

Social Security Dependance isthe result of the party life

People of addiction are far beyond the help of our families; the therapeutic value of one addict helping another is without parallel.  That is what the NA basic text says.  Mental health and chemical dependency professionals have made great strides in discovering what works and what doesn't work in dual diagnosis rehab

Do you think your drinking smoking kids are just experimenting "like young people do"  It's time for that thinking to stop. 
Extended intoxication creates mental illness which can add up to a state of "unemployed and unemployable". Addicts who work cost the the insurance companies more than average in medical coverage. 

Great cost to the employers of drug and alcohol users can be measured in performance. Look at half effort days of hang overs and absences. 

The families and children of addicts pay through the nose developing anxiety, emotional, & physical ailments. 
   
     Children, parents and spouses of addicts often find it difficult to compete thereby becoming underemployed and dependent on any organized achievers of the family or they fall to societies safety nets. 

      Social Security is for retired American workers. 
The drug dependent mentally ill population, is a great strain on all of us. 

    When you want to give up on your family members out of control behavior, please take some responsibility and do what you can to help them get and stay placed in care facilities. 

Maybe they will get well. Maybe they must have group support and structure as the only way they can hope to be functional. 

Please don't expect the government to handle this epidemic.

Social Security after a Stroke, Social Security for Drug Addicts, Mental Illness

What do u think ???

Social Security after a Stroke, 

Social Security for 

Drug Addicts, Mental Illness

I think American spend too much energy being sick of things. 
I believe we co-create our experience with our thoughts, words and deeds. 

Social Security 

God is all there is, Everything I see, and have ever seen is made of God stuff. There is a power for good in the universe that can be used by me and every single person to create health, abundance, and Love I use it now and I rejoice in it.

I see the system as balancing out. Divine guidance is upon our law makers.
I see many more American's being able to work, and working.
Mental, physical, and spiritual health creates prosperity as the standard we accept as our own.

I do my part in prayer for intelligence, higher consciousness, and mindful living to reign as the fact of humanity Now.
I write this as law in the book of the universe.
I release it in great Thanksgiving, Knowing it is so.
I let it be. And so it is.

That is what I meant to say.......
When I first wrote it and sent it to my friend who had stated she was feeling victimized, and talked down to by a comment she had heard that stated people who were receiving Social Security as having entitlement issues.......

So she reacted with this 'off the point', political style, 'tit for tat' return, that compared apple with oranges and attacked the benefit packages of congress. 

No wonder my original statement that was laced with 'poor me, so screw you,'
language spurred this response. 

I started my lovely affirmative prayer, that you see above - ie:
God is all there is; Well my first writing of it went something like this............

God is all there is, Everything I see, and everything I have ever seen is made of God stuff. There is a power for good in the universe that can be used by me and every single person to create health, abundance, and Love I use it now and I rejoice in it. 

I gratefully receive my social security. I was forced to pay into it since my first job at 16 years old. I paid into to it when I had two babies and a PTSD husband to support after he returned from Vietnam.
I wished so hard that I could keep my tax money to buy food and pay my babysitter.
When I had businesses for some 20 years I paid my income tax and had to matched the tax dollars of my employees and felt this burden of debt.  

In the drug treatment business I saw multitudes of people suffering with mental illnesses, and physical problems caused by drug addiction at young ages collecting social security. 

I have heard the the SS fund may not be stable because government decision makers used the money for other causes. People are living longer, combined with the epidemic of drug addiction and mental illness can combine to give me pause.  
(This scarcity rambling concluded, I tried to go back into faith mode and make this into a prayer again.)

I posted this to my girlfriends facebook page - without re-reading it, or checking my motives, and called it a prayer. 

Debbie responded:
  I have been paying this since I was a runaway and working at Burger king , then a cook at a Country truck stop when I was 15 years old and I didn't put my social down correctly, switched 2 numbers around.
  I was working and going to school and living alone.
  Paid into social security all my life. Oh and I also paid into it out of my workman's comp. So I wouldn't get screwed when I do retire..

(This gal had been my employee way back - so her response to my offensive, complaining, judgemental, victim statements had opened her pain body and caused her to take a defensive posture with me, in return.)

Debbie responded: 
I will re check, but I remember using my Social Security Card.. it could be the Social Security Office fault, being that for my younger years I transposed my number at one time... but I thought I told them about it years ago... I will check though.. just is hard when u have to come up with proof of where u worked...



Loriann Witte It was hard for me pulling all of my records together too. I had just had a stroke before I came of age to file for SS so Pat did all of the paper work. But I am grateful to be an American.

Debbie responded: 
Also I have had a married hyphenated name that I got stuck using long after the marriage dissolved, because someone else was working under my maiden name and my social security number. Found this out when I filed my taxes, and was informed that I had already filed when I hadn't.. 

Debbie responded:
I am going to try to get a new Social Security number... I have experienced Identity theft 

Debbie responded:
I am grateful to be alive, I had a stroke April of last year and the stupid hospital tried to say I had pneumonia,  I think I would of had a cold or something.. I got dizzy and woke up on floor couldn't move, my cat saved my life, by running in and out of the house until dark, I was paralyzed and couldn't move... it took me 4 months to be able to touch my fingers one at a time to each other,, hard work ....I lived alone then.



Loriann Witte That's the kind of stuff that happens when we are not our best selves. For me it is important that I don't get down on the government, and I don't name people who try to help me as stupid.  I remind myself that I don't have enough information to judge.  It may sound apathetic but I trust better informed people watch them like a hawk.  I have done a lot of step work to not pick up or entertain resentments. ( I changed my original post, because on the 10th step side I saw it as full of self pity and blame) so I cleaned it up to be the prayer that represents the thinking of my higher mind.



Loriann Witte I had the stroke I believe because of ego. I had 4 major stressors on my mind - I re-thought them over and over for some months. 1. I was giving out money that I could not afford to help someone. Paying them monthly. Too proud and afraid to speak up and say it wasn't ok for me.

Debbie responded:
Oh I am not judging , don't get me wrong, It is hard to just go through all paperwork, being I have traveled a lot, but always worked .. hell in 2008 I had to travel all the way to Indiana just for work.. and the funniest thing that happened was I was hired from Arizona went to Indiana to work at the CDC , when I got there passed all interviews, psych evals, and at the end, the lady said , oh your drivers license,  and said i had to have my license in their state for 1 yr. I spent it working at an amusement park and a truck stop, but before the year was up I fell on ice and had to have back surgery..... life isn't always easy, but I think I enjoy the challenge...lol

Debbie responded:
Miss u guys though, wish I was working in Cali. now. in treatment , can't be a caregiver anymore.. I walk with a cane, but I can drive and God willing , one of u guys will give me my love career back, helping others & getting a little money and a room for it..lol, hard paying rent and I can't get a regular job , been off work to long, 4 yrs.



Loriann Witte  Had a person getting out of jail, that I was so fearful would move in on me and I have to support them, and deal with their resentments and mental illness that has left a very small spot in my house left for me to be. Had experienced tremendous discomfort with this situation in the past. Felt I would have to move out to have any peace. Confrontation freaks me out. And standing up to close family is so difficult for me. I am still not sure what my part in that is.



Loriann Witte 3. I got involved with an expensive project that was bigger than my company at the time could support. Taking 7 people on a marketing thing. 4. I can't remember what the 4th thing was. But it was a big deal at the time, so much that I was losing my temper left and right + losing sleep. Then I went to Disneyland with my young, strong, prime time adult son. We had been doing physically exercise type trips together, and I was so excited to have his attention. He approaching 40 and I was 60 so I had to show off how fit and able to keep up I was, so he would like me and keep including me. At Disneyland it was about 104 + in mid August California heat wave. We stayed 2 nights, on the 3rd day I had to sort of run - exhausted to keep up with my son's long leg work, my husband in a scoter, and my toddler Granddaughter about 4 in a pram or riding on the scooter with my husband. I hit Disney Main Street with a thud. Lying in a pool of sweat then rushed off by the Disneyland and Anaheim emergency services. Two years later, I am improving. I site Ego as the cause. As I have sat and contemplated.



Loriann Witte Easy does it girl, you and me. Limitless eternal spirits, in our finite earth suites. I'm putting this thread in my blog- is that ok?

 If I could put all of my paid SS taxes I have give to the government for

 the last forty years into a 401k I would be retiring a millionaire instead of 

getting 1300 dollars a month.

When we have a loved one who is in trouble with impulse control issues and obviously needs professional help in a clinical setting, it is not wise to leave the decision about such an admission up to them. 

If your family member has experienced consequences or you fear they will soon be in trouble if things don't change; but they are refusing help. Intervention could be the answer. 

It is likely that they have a negative support group, who are part of the problem at hand.  Addicts bond with their using friends as they are embarrassed to be too close to their families.

When an impaired person needs help to make good decisions for their future, this is the time when the family can call in an interventionist. 

We have spanish and english speaking interventions who will travel to the family, get them very organized, before presenting a united appeal, full of love and respect, offering the gift of recovery. 

Intervention gets the person ready, willing, and travels with them to treatment.

We have been 94% successful over 20 years of interventions getting non cooperating clients to admit to rehab, and they go with us willingly. 

Intervention is a therapeutic event. The family will participate in writing letters according to tried and true guidelines.  Intimate family group therapy, rehearsal, and training takes place for one day or two until we all feel completely ready to 'meet with the guest of honor.'

We are ready when each member is able to proceed full of grace and conviction. This is a pull up into a much better life, never a put down. 

All planning is done is to prevent a defensive or offensive posture.  

 Intervention ends with the agreement - the family gives the client space and the counselor asks the person to lean into me. Travel has been prearranged, bags have been prepacked. We keep the stimuli low so the exit is private with personal dignity intact. 




The Intervention Process: Your Questions Answered
Pre-Intervention

We understand that everyone has been worried and has differing thoughts of what should be done. The professional interventionist pulls every body's energy and gets it all moving in one direction. 
 We discus and eliminate all of the reasons the addict will have for not going to treatment. We delegate the client’s daily life tasks among the participants (ie taking care of the kids, pets, the house) to alleviate this stress from the addict. 
 We also deal with employment issues. We also decide as a group what we will do for the client while they are in treatment, and what the consequences are if they try to refuse this gift.

The Intervention

As an informed, educated, and organized group in agreement with our goal, we meet with the client. 
 We do not have to solve all family problems, nor do we have to know how the addiction can possibly be healed. 
 We go to the addict with one common understanding: our loved one must have professional help, or may soon die. 
 Treatment is essential. 
 We have done our homework and made the best arrangements, and today is the day. 
 We are here with all of our love and power to stop the downward spiral here and now.

Transport

We get the client ready and willing, and then take them to treatment.
 The power and intensity of the intervention opens a window of opportunity.
 The client is emotionally transcended into a state of willingness. Whether this state of willingness is brought about by the presentation of love and concern, or the fear of consequences, the result is the same. 
 It’s a short window. We must continue in action immediately, before the denial mechanism takes control again. 
 The message at the end of the intervention is you have 20 minutes to pack, our flight leaves in about an hour. 
 At this point we keep the stimulus very low. The client most likely is in a reflective state of mind and does not want much interaction. 
 We need an independent means of transportation to the airport, or a family member who will not elicit any further confrontation from the client. 

 When the intervention is over it is over. 
 We stop the confrontation and let the client lean into the impartial professionalism of the counselor. 

 The interventionist and the client fly or drive to the treatment center together. 

Fear not, The intervention goes better than the family thinks it will.
Addicts want a rescue from the life they are living, even if they are unaware of this fact. 

Transition
The counselor completes the transition from the intervention into the treatment admissions process. We introduce them to the staff and explain the process of making themselves comfortable.

The interventionist explains to the counseling staff the disposition of the intervention and the reports of the family in an effort to educate the treatment team as to the truths the client needs to face and work through. The intervention letters are given to the staff for the client to use later in therapy.

One goal of treatment is to break down their denial of the severity of the disease. Another treatment goal is to resolve and let go of resentment. Reviewing the intervention letters with a sober head and the guidance of a therapist is done to bring about an understanding of the love involved in the gift of intervention and recovery. We do recover.
