Every year in the U.S., 120,000 people die of addiction.
That’s 350 a day,
as per Time Magazine
About 10% of our population has intoxication issues.
Chronic and occasional problem drinking lowers one's quality of life. Alcohol or drug abusing brings dysfunction into the lives of all who love you, your employer, employees, neighbors, other drivers on the roads, public safety, children's wellbeing, everyone a mind altered person encounters is at risk. 

Unclear thinking creates mindless actions which bring down society as a whole. Also a ripple effect.  
An estimated 13% of this 10%, ever seek help. So many go on believing they have no intoxication problems. They blame the unhappiness that surrounds their lives on others. Feeling trouble is created outside of their control.

If you have a drinking, pill, or street drug using loved one who is out of control, but they are not open to getting help - You can have an intervention for them.  
Treating the person with as much respect as possible is the most relaxed approach for all concerned.
The pre-intervention meeting is when the most important work 
is done.  
The counselor and interested group meet to strategize their approach.
Family and friends share about the client's strengths and the way they see intoxication weakening or alienating them from their dreams.  
This meeting of the minds honors the love and caring they have for the client. 
This process could take a couple of hours while they set their resolve and plan their most peaceful, loving approach. 

Being mindful not to be aggressive or rude which will only set up a defensive posture, we unite and agree we are ready. 
Letters by are written by all participants according to 'tried and true guidelines' provided by the interventionist.  As follows.
The most important part of the response is the letter that you will be writing, and reading OUT LOUD to your loved one.  Everyone participating in the intervention must write a letter.  This letter is to be written before the intervention drafted in the first person (Dear John), and must be read out loud, during the intervention, by the individual who wrote it (unless they cannot be there).  The intervention letter is composed of 6 parts.  Please write your letter using the following guidelines:

Part 1 – Identification
  • Introduce the power of the relationship.  For example: “I love you unconditionally since before you were born.”
  • Please name your relationship.  For example: “We have been friends for over 20 years”.
  • Remove all objections before they arise.  For example: “I realize that I have contributed to your disease by drinking with you on many occasions, and I am sorry”.
Part 2 – Love
  • Why do you love this person?  Please list all their positive attributes.
  • Please talk about your fondest memories and experiences with your loved one.
  • Please tell about times you have been proud and grateful to have them in your life.
Part 3 – Changes
  • What has addiction changed about your loved one’s personality?
  • What has changed about your relationship with your loved one?
Part 4 – The Facts
    •      -     Please list as many specific incidents that have been a direct result of your             
    •        Loved one’s substance abuse is addressed at this time.
      For example:  
      “On Thanksgiving last year, you got so drunk that we pleaded with you not to drive home.  You wouldn’t listen and on the way home, you were pulled over and arrested for a DUI”.
  • Please be brief, accurate, and only discuss incidents that you witnessed firsthand. Let us not talk about unknown things that will make them want to argue the facts.
  • Please refrain from using any judgmental language.

Part 4 - Apology
    •        -  Your loved one may be willing to die while waiting for an apology.  At the base of the broken heart of
    • Addiction is true or perceived trauma.   As you have noticed the addict holds a lot of blame for others.  If this desire for an apology is keeping this person sick and robbing them of their will to live; now is the time to give the apology to them.  We could, of course, have done better.  No human interaction is perfect.  In the clear light of hindsight see what YOU have said or done to harm this sick & dying person.  Go to any length to save their life now.  Give the gift of apology.
    • We are not here in intervention to present "we are right & you are wrong".  State a desire to change.  We all need to learn more and change in recovery.  Addiction is a family disease.
Part 5 – Understanding
    •      -     This is the part of your letter where you let your loved one know that you          
    •             understand that they are sick and that this addiction is not their fault.
  • Please let them know that you understand that this is not a matter of willpower or “weak character.”   
  • However, this is also where you let them know that while it is not their fault that they have a disease, it is their fault if they choose to do nothing about…and Today is the Day!!!
Part 6- The Ask
  • Please end the letter by saying whatever you feel you haven’t gotten a chance to say to you loved one.
  • Briefly, explain the research you have done and how you believe this to be the best and most comfortable treatment center for them.  Let them know that you have done your due diligence in research and would not send them to a place where you would not go yourself, if you needed to.
  • Most importantly, please end your letter by asking your loved one to accept help. Be direct and specific.  For example:  “Please accept the help that we are offering and go into treatment with Loriann today.

Questions and Answers

Q. So let me ask you a question, if a person submits insurance verification info to several facilities, by calling in or by filling out online forms;

Is the first treatment provider to obtain insurance verification eligibility the only one allowed to provide treatment.

Legend Tx means Treatment
A. Tx center prices vary, Insurance pays per contract price they have set with each facility, the co-pay is the difference between what the insurance company has set as standard & customary pricing for the services offered, then contracted at a negotiated rate based on that figure, so co-pay is the balance of tx center actual charges subtracted from the insurance paid contract paid price price .

Not many people know this equation but tx shoppers call their insurance into various places maybe looking for the best deal in co-pays, to hear the pitch, looking for various specific services, "to find the perfect place", and because they are acting compulsively in a panic about their loved ones safety.

Calling lots of rehabs, submitting your insurance info to multi places creates a time consuming situation for phone staff and the insurance company which of course increases costs which are passed on to the consumer. Know that calling various advertisers (of which there are many) you often reach the same call centers, each call center has 5 to 15 phone counselors all referring to several different sales people who all refer to the same tx centers. There are a finite number of call centers and even more call center phone counselors than there are tx centers that accept insurance.

Each call center, and each tx program generates as many internet ads as they can. 1st page ads spend lots of money, and they know how to achieve this status so they also know how to flood the top positions for a time, therefore it creates a "make work" situation for phone center workers. Treatment programs often have computers that give the sale to the 1st contact intake counselor who submits the insurance info.

I have worked with lead generation sites that attract these types of shoppers more regularly. We used to call it "wild card" marketing which means internet trolling with nets like shrimp boats. Target marketing for particular issues or settings attracts people who feel they have found what they want through research instead of calling around shopping by phone. Researcher tend to be more educated and better fixed financially, than call shoppers who feel they must interview each place themselves with calls.

Q. So does this mean that dealing with insurance leads is a waste of time for private lead generators like Treatment Finders and private counselor based call centers like Beach Cities?

A. No, not at all, We do a lot of insurance admits. Just explaining how it goes when we encounter program shoppers. Giving insurance information to various phone counselors just clogs the systems.  Internet advertisers flood the front page as often and for as long as they can. So you can make 20 calls which gives you enough information to become totally exhausted and confused; while your 20 calls have maybe reaching the 3 different treatment centers that are actually able to work with your insurance or cash budget.

Just saying each call starts a walk through a maze. I say read the ads, pick 3 of your favorites and call them. Hear what they have to say, wait for the insurance to process, and decide. Admit as soon as possible. If the client changes their mind about going, have an intervention.

Many callers believe their insurance will cover 100% which is often what is written on their policy. This means 100% of standard and customary prices. These are generally prices estimated at much less than the cost of what it takes to treat addiction, and do not take into consideration the cost of the setting and amenities, profits, or the costs of doing business. So there is a co-pay. Sometimes the 100% coverage is only for medical service which do not include mental health or substance abuse.

The co-pay can be thousands that the caller does not have to spend. So no rehab admit.

Callers belief they have insurance when they have medi-cal, medicare or state paid insurance. This may pay for medical but rarely pays for drug / alcohol treatment.

I am just giving some facts that people may not know.  Just pointing out some details about the total process.
All respect,

If an alcoholic or addict has no money and no family financial support, they are wasting their time and clogging the systems to call treatment ads on the internet or yellow pages or any paid advertising sources. Look in the front of the phone book to the blue pages or the public services listings. Call
Alcoholics Anonymous or

Narcotics Anonymous or

If you do not use or know that treatment center marketers us varriations of NA and AA sites to market.

If you are looking for treatment and have no money call the Salvation Army, your county drug & alcohol services, or you county mental health. Very few treatment centers accept HMO's - call your HMO for a referral.

If you have a PPO most often you will still pay an upfront co-pay. Some places will accept the PPO as payment, mostly large funded operations like church based programs, or university programs.

Addiction Healing
 from the Inside Out
Orange County 

Some spiritual practices that sound so mystical and mysterious can be broken down into understandable terms and used to heal ourselves in different interesting ways.

Newly recovering addicts report that they experience terrible using and drinking dreams.  

Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD) created by living in the war zone of addiction combined with physical and emotional detox can be the causes of these debilitating dreams.  The using dream is an indicator that can help an addict to break through denial by showing them the extreme extent of their damaged psyche.  One must look at these disturbing nightmares as a gift and a powerful healing tool.   

Suffering does not cure addiction. Addict's need pampering to calm down the pain enough to be able to establish some trust.  Active addiction and PTSD closes a person's heart and mind.  Long term use of intoxicants actually affects brain chemistry and brain function.  The frontal lobes in the brain where our conscious sorts out what we value goes dark and turns off.
The midbrain lights up, the animal survival part of the brain takes over. 

Spouses, kid's, parent's say to addict's "if you loved me, you'd stop."
The personality you think you are talking to is no longer in charge.

The man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the man. Intervention, admissions to detox and rehab will break this cycle. 

As with people in prison, the substance use can be stopped while the defensive / offensive thinking can continue in a hostile environment continues.

Looking for a kind, deeply moving approach 
People admit to Addiction Rehab while they are acting out their lowest and worse behaviors. The family can be justifiably annoyed, and expect it is only right for the impaired person to feel remorse and pay the price for the hurts their active addiction has caused for others. 

They do pay the price. People in early recovery go through, and have been going through relentless emotional turmoil. The program has to reach a person on a very deep level. Simple practices, like learning positive affirmations. Use these phrases before going to sleep to set an intention for the direction of your dreams. This practice can move mountains of chronic mal-content. 

Lucid Dreaming is really a sweet and simple concept. Getting quiet, playing meditation style music, repeating affirmations while going to sleep.

Some lovely visualizations of a scene that would heal wounds. If you'd love to have an estranged family member hug you in peace; set your intention to fly in your sleep to where they are. This practice while lieing down to go to sleep can help guide your dreams. 

Detox Dreams are horrible enough to strongly motivate newly recovering people to seek out solutions. This process opens up interest in learning about the many simple yet powerful methods that really change a persons life for the better.   

With better sleep, and hope in possibilities we can move on to learn new coping skills. The 12 steps, taking personal responsibility for our thinking.
