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.

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.

Diet and Exercise calm the Bipolar Addict 

Dual Diagnosis in Orange County

I've been battling addiction for years. In drug and alcohol treatment The mental health professionals had hung a label on me. They said I was bipolar. What does that even mean?

I've had extended periods of time of sobriety working the program. I went to meetings and had a sponsor. I was in the middle of the herd, but I never felt normal.

My emotions always drove my behavior and seemed to drive the direction of my attitudes about the people places and things around me.

When I'd go out with friends after a meeting, sometimes I'd be so hyper and animated. I might get up from the table and move around the restaurant.

I'd stand behind my friends sometimes bumping them with a light nudge or push on their shoulders. Honestly, I was just affectionate, but some didn't feel it that way.

I was a bipolar addict living with dual diagnosis in Orange County, and I needed help! 

One morning after a dinner with friends I got a text saying
“take your meds you freak”!
I was horrified and embarrassed.
My manic behavior was causing trouble.

The Meds? I was taking my meds. Two types to be precise, one kept me groggily and the other a mood stabilizer had no effects I could feel or notice.

The majority of the time I was more manic and seldom depressed.
I had racing thoughts and a vivid imagination. The meds weren't working too to my liking.

I was encouraged to try diet and exercise to supplement my meds to handle my bipolar. I was more often manic than I was depressed.

My goal was to stop my mind from racing.
Today in the mornings I do my meditation, and I exercise. It's a great way to get grounded and balanced. I still take my meds but have lowered the dose. The exercise counters the mania and also helps me sleep at night. 
I eat a clean diet with lots of fruits and vegetables.

In treatment, I started exercising again, and I'm sober,  call us. We can offer you solutions.

You're not alone; we are just a phone call away.

San Juan Capistrano CA turtle like addiction treatment

“I am more than flesh, I am more than time”. (Rickie Byers Beckwith, Agape, Culver City). 3 to 7 million year old leather back turtle fossil found in ‘San Juan Capistrano’. This city is a know as a vortex by the mystic community here in south Orange County, California. Mission San Juan Capistrano, "The Jewel of the California Missions" ... the best conserved, which is why it is called the Jewel of the Missions. So the whole world knows of San Juan Capistrano’s significance as a connection point to the deep past. A portal, an advantage vista through time.

I am changing and adapting to my surrounding. The instinctual intellect of the one mind, which is my mind now, knows the infinite glory of adaptation is mine. I exist and have my being in a co-creative relationship with this presence, continuously evolving.

A seemingly finite being experiencing the infinite.

Seeing and knowing about the leatherback turtle fossil being unearthed and reassembled, brought back into today’s race consciousness, less than a mile from my home invokes the passion of the ages in me. The world pauses and takes a look at our spot here on the planet to realize the universe is unfolding as it should.

Do not fear the changes. Shedding the old skin terrifies the simple - survival parts of our earthbound brain. Look now with the eyes of the infinite God mind. Levitate to the 42nd thousand mile view and see the Divine power in the sculpting.

In the here and now.

Human instinct run riot can take the shape of a life threatening addiction, that at very least can be lessing the quality of one’s ability to give and receive love effectively.

Drug and alcohol treatment can help you shed the ways that no longer serve your highest good.

Our Sons Drinking Is Out Of Control

Our Sons Drinking Is Out Of Control

Our Sons Drinking Is Out Of Control.

Early onset Alcoholism 

The first time Billy got drunk was when he was 12. Apparently he and his cousin found a guy who bought them a pint of tequila. The two went to a field near our home and drank it. Billy landed on our front porch. It was after dark, Betty and I heard a loud noise on the porch so I went to investigate, there he was, spread out on his back. His arms and legs were scratched up and his shirt was ripped. We panicked, we thought he'd been beaten up. We got him to sit up and he got sick all over his mother. He reeked of booze. Betty and I stared into each others eyes with horror. We put him to bed with a bucket so if he got sick again.

Our first thought was who did this to our son? 

We wanted to know who purchased them the booze. We needed to blame someone, In our minds Billy was a perfect child, he had to have been forced to drink. Denial started early, we wanted to blame someone else for Billys behavior. We never got the answers we were looking for and as time went on the issue died. The next time he got drunk that we know of was when he was 16. He and a classmate were found by police in the classmates car passed out in the field parking for the county fair. They were released to his friends Dad and we got him home.

Our sons drinking is out of control.

For the next few years our lives were hell. When he would leave the house we had no idea how he would return. His grades were horrible, he totalled my new car, He'd get so drunk he would sometimes wet the the bed. The only thing we knew to do was to ground him forever. We would keep him at home. That didn't work and when he turned 19 we were lost. I had a friend in Alcoholics Anonymous so I went to him. He said our son need “tough love” we had to get him to a 90 day residential drug and alcohol treatment center. He said that instead of trying to keep Billy locked down at home we should tell him he has two options. He could either hit the streets or go into treatment, one or the other.

We told him he was leaving and it was his choice, the streets or treatment . 

Billy chose treatment and we were so happy, That gave us hope. I knew AA worked for my friend, maybe it would work for Billy. It did, treatment was a life saver, In treatment he was medically detoxed. He had great therapist who helped him deal with his alcoholism as well as other issues. Billy discovered he didn't have to do this alone, he has support. Betty and I learned about the disease concept of alcoholism. Billy got sober in treatment and has been sober 3 years now. He attends AA meetings regularly and has a sponsor. He's in college now and just made the deans list. We are so proud of him. We have our son back.

Yes, you can get your loved one back (949) 292-2000.

How can I get clean?

How can I get clean Orange County?
Intervention Saved My Life

How can I get clean?

For the longest time I used drugs and alcohol and I could stop but I could never stay stopped. I could quit drinking for a month but then I'd start again for no good reason. Id take pain pills for the hangovers then the pills took me. The cycle began. I’d take pills to get off booze then take the booze to get off the pills.

I was killing myself.

I was aware of Alcoholics anonymous and I attended meetings from time to time but I could never connect with the people in the meetings. I guess it’s true you must stop using before the program will work. One morning my wife said she'd leave if I didn't get help. I continued using for a few more weeks and on a saturday in August I came home and saw two moving vans in front of our house.

My wife was leaving me.

I was so distraught all I could do was drink, use and hide. This went on for a few months, I was living in two rooms of my large house the bedroom and the kitchen. I only left to get beer or pills. I was a prisoner in my home and I hated what I had become.

I started to think about suicide.

A friend had been reaching out to me from time to time and the last time he visited he saved my life. My friend came with and interventionist and after two hours I had agreed to go to residential treatment. When I made the decision for treatment my life started to get better and hope slowly started to enter my thinking again. I completed a 90 day residential treatment program and I was excited about life. Today I have a life rich with friends and family. I have a spiritual connection that helps me overcome any problem I face.

Today life is good.  You can get clean. Call 949-292-2000.

I reject the rules of American society

I reject the rules of American society

Somewhere along the line I decided my parents maybe were not the perfect teachers, nor the most intelligent, most loving, most beautiful people in the world.
As I had held belief in parental perfection as absolute truth, I was crushed to find I they may have had faults. I was so angry and hurt by the knowledge of their humanness that I decided they appeared to have more serious faults than most others. These childhood condemnations lead me to lose faith in all established systems and a rebellious spirit became my constant companion.
The first thing I heard in my recovery program was your resentments will kill you. Then in Al Anon I heard “It doesn't matter, doesn't matter, and doesn’t matter.” I knew I was on to something. The fact that every little detail of life was not my business gave me a new idea that forgiveness of others was possible. These revelations lead me to begin to understand self forgiveness was recommended. As I took in these earth shaking concepts they showed me the way I had been thinking was way off. I was promised I'd find peace if I could change my mind.
Addicts sing this song

I reject the rules of American society 

A large portion of my spare time is spent maintaining my spiritual condition. I go to work and I go to meetings, or to my church. I talk on the phone to people who are not using and who want to help me in my recovery; I listen to peaceful music so I can have some meditation. Good food, the decorations in my clean house, exercise like walking my dog on trails I like, this kind of stuff keeps me together. I find my way out of continuing to do things that I don't like. I don’t take part in actions that upset me. Taking care of business doesn't have to include suffering. There is a solution. 

Mission Basilica San Juan Capistrano is a church building and parish of the Roman Catholic Church in San Juan Capistrano, California, United States

My well being is of top priority. Doing what is important to me in a way that I can feel good about myself makes it possible for me to stay clean. Being mindful of other people’s feelings is a part of recovery too. Do no harm. Be polite.
Living our lives trying to make others happy is often one of the key ingredients in the addictive process. This is the selfish part of the program. While recovery is about being of service, and learning how to give; it is also about taking care of yourself so you have something to give. We must always replenish the well. We can't give away something we haven't got. Being of service is not about being a martyr. Stretching beyond our comfort zone is how we grow. There are many paradoxes in the program we must be willing to be a little uncomfortable and try new things, but then find a way to be comfortable in this new action. We can be of service without trying to be who other people want us to be. My adjusted attitude can make what was once impossible very doable. We must find a way to be kind to ourselves and others.

Addicted to pain pills how can I quit?

Addicted to pain pills how can I quit?

Letter from a client that beat their addiction to pain pills. 

I always liked pain medication. When I went to the dentists office I always left with pain pills. I didn't need them and then I would take 6 every hour and not the 1 every 6 hours as prescribed. I didn't think it was a problem because when I ran out of the pain meds I'd stop.

I’d stop until the next dentist visit. I now know this was a form of denial. This went on for years, any chance I had to get pain pills from a doctor for what I thought were a legitimate reasons.  I’d get them then take them way too fast but when they were gone I wouldn't seek more. I was ok.. I thought?.

I play golf and I met a guy who was a friend of a friend. We hit it off and started to play golf together often. My friend had been wounded in Vietnam. I discovered that he was getting pain pills every month from the VA. He kept several in his pocket at all times. Knowing this put me on alert. He started giving me pills on the golf course.

This was how it went wrong. He gave me pills in the beginning but later he wanted money. Before long I was paying him hundreds each week to supply my addiction. I tried to stop on my own. I tried to kick it with suboxone but could not do it alone and my life spiralled out of control. I spent thousands of dollars, wrecked cars  and got looked up in a psych ward twice  I was suicidal, I'd lost all hope, my life was in shambles and I couldnt stop using, the withdrawal was a living nightmare, I would get so sick and to stop the pain I used again.

All along I had been going to AA meetings with no success. On a saturday morning in August my family armed with an interventionist showed up in my living room. The next day I was on a plane to treatment. I arrived and with a medical detox I got off the pain meds. After ninety days of treatment I was alive again. I was excited to meet the world when just 3 short months prior I was ready to end my life. With the help of an intervention and residential treatment I have a life today. These days life is good. I work, I'm active in recovery and I have purpose in life. Today I feel whole.

Addicted to pain pills how did I quit? By seeking help.

Are you or someone you love addicted to pain pills?

Don't delay, call me today (949) 292-2000.

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost. I am helpless.
It isn't my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.
I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. 
I pretend that I don't see it.
I fall in again.
I can't believe I am in this same place.
But, it isn't my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
see it is there.
I still fall in ... it's a habit ... but, my eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.
I walk down another street.
