Presidential Proclamation -- National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, 2015

NATIONAL ALCOHOL AND DRUG ADDICTION RECOVERY MONTH, 2015

- - - - - - -

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

A PROCLAMATION

Every day, resilient Americans with substance use disorders summon extraordinary courage and strength and commit to living healthy and productive lives through recovery.  From big cities to small towns to Indian Country, substance use disorders affect the lives of millions of Americans.  This month, we reaffirm our unwavering commitment to all those who are seeking or in need of treatment, and we recognize the key role families, friends, and health care providers play in supporting those on the path to a better tomorrow.

This year's theme is "Join the Voices for Recovery: Visible, Vocal, Valuable!"  It encourages us all to do our part to eliminate negative public attitudes associated with substance use disorders and treatment.  People in recovery are part of our communities -- they are our family and friends, colleagues and neighbors -- and by supporting them and raising awareness of the challenges they face, we can help eradicate prejudice and discrimination associated with substance use disorders, as well as with co-occurring mental disorders.  Prevention and treatment work, and people recover -- and we must ensure all those seeking help feel empowered, encouraged, and confident in their ability to take control of their future.  Americans looking for help for themselves or their loved ones can call 1-800-662-HELP or use the "Treatment Locator" tool atwww.SAMHSA.gov.

My Administration remains dedicated to pursuing evidence-based strategies to address substance use disorders as part of our National Drug Control Strategy.  Seeking to widen pathways to recovery, our strategy supports the integration of substance use treatment into primary health care settings and the expansion of support services in places such as high schools, institutions of higher education, and throughout the criminal justice system.  In the wake of public health crises related to non-medical use of prescription drugs and heroin in communities across our Nation, my Administration has pledged considerable resources to help Federal, State, and local authorities boost prevention efforts, improve public health and safety, and increase access to treatment in communities across the country.  And the Affordable Care Act has extended substance use disorder and mental health benefits and Federal parity protections to millions of Americans.

Behavioral health is essential to overall health, and recovery is a process through which individuals are able to improve their wellness, live increasingly self-directed lives, and strive to fulfill their greatest potential.  During National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month, we reaffirm our belief that recovery and limitless opportunity are within reach of every single American battling substance use disorders, and we continue our work to achieve this reality.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 2015 as National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month.  I call upon the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities. 

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirty-first day of August, in the year of our Lord two thousand fifteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and fortieth.

 

BARACK OBAMA

Driving Under The Influence Time For Rehab!


Driving While Under The Influence!
It is time for Rehab!

Every, Holiday season we see the warning, from local and state agencies explaining that law enforcement will be out searching for those that are drinking and driving. The commercials, advertisements, media reminders, newspaper articles are all right in front of us, letting us know it is time to be aware and don't drink and drive.

So why is it that after 20 years of a shift to tougher drinking and driving laws, media campaigns, prevention awareness programs, we still see numbers of people doing this behavior repetitive?

The answer is we're not addressing the primary problem with the individuals that are drinking and driving. We can take away their drivers license, lock them away off the streets, and once they are released from jail or prison they are back to drinking and driving. The reason is the main problem is alcohol or substance use related and it is still not addressed appropriately.

I know this does not cross the average individuals mind space during the holidays. I mean who sits around and ask why are people still drinking and driving in 2013 or 2014?

However, if your one of the families or the law enforcement agencies or trauma units that deal with the aftermath you do think about this problem annually or quite often.

I am proposing legislation in our great State of Texas and Oklahoma that once someone is arrested, they are automatically referred to an alcohol and drug treatment program for an assessment and evaluation to determine if rehab is needed. If that addiction professional deems the person has a substance use disorder. Then they must successfully complete a alcohol rehab as a consequence for their drinking and driving. You can stack on all the other behavior consequence you feel are appropriate to try and prevent the problem from returning, but let's add treatment to the front in of the problem.

The problem with alcohol and drugs is that a large portion of those that are drinking and driving if assessed by an addiction professional would meet the criteria for admission into an alcohol or drug rehabilitation program, either at an intensive outpatient or residential treatment level.

What you may not be aware of is that the tools, assessments, testing and technology is already available to help screen for someone who is alcohol or drug dependent at these programs across the nation. The treatment programs already do this on each patient entering their programs. They do this to make sure they don't admit someone falsely that does not need the necessary treatment.

It is time we wake up to the reality that alcohol and drug addiction is a leading cause of this behavior. We have bounced around it, denied it, turned our heads and here we are still seeing people drinking and driving repetitive.

It takes thinking outside the box to change the mindset of our culture. It takes even more effort to do something about the problem. Please join me in this legislative change and let's make a difference at lowering the amount of drinking and driving in Texas and Oklahoma.

If you have recently been arrested for alcohol or an drug related offense, go ahead and call and addiction treatment program. Don't wait till we pass a law, be responsible and get the help you need, call a treatment center now.

The Effects Of Spirituality In Alcoholics Anonymous On Alcohol Dependence

AA Big BookImage via Wikipedia

New research shows that attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings may increase spirituality and help decrease frequency and intensity of alcohol use

  • Alcoholics Anonymous is a widely known 12-step program that can help individuals control their dependence on alcohol, and spirituality is a large part
  • A new study shows that spirituality does increase over time, which can lead to better alcohol outcomes and an improved rate of recovery
  • These results indicate that spirituality is an important factor in the multi-faceted recovery from an alcohol-use disorder

Addictions, whether it is to drugs or alcohol, are a very difficult hurdle for individuals to overcome. But, there are ways to help people with their recovery through 12-step programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). Many of these organizations, including AA, highlight spirituality as a very important factor, but the data surrounding its effectiveness have often been contested. 

However, new research shows that as attendance of AA meetings increase, so do the participants spiritual beliefs, especially in those individuals who had low spirituality at the beginning of the study. 

The results will be published in the March 2011 issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research and are currently available at Early View. 

John F. Kelly, lead author of the study, Associate Professor in Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and the Associate Director of the Center for Addiction Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital, said that while spirituality is an important aspect of AA recovery, it is not the only way they can help individuals. 

"I've heard it said that AA is too spiritual, and I've also heard it said that AA is not spiritual enough for some people. Although this is not the only way that AA helps individuals recover, I think these findings support the notion that AA works in part by enhancing spiritual practices," Kelly said. 

The researchers assessed more than 1,500 adults throughout their recovery process, with data being gathered at three, six, nine, 12, and 15 months. The study utilized data on their attendance to AA meetings, their individual spirituality/religiosity practices and overall alcohol-use outcomes to determine if spirituality is indeed a mechanism of behavior change. 

The results indicated that there was a robust association between an increase in attendance to AA meetings with increased spirituality and a decrease in the frequency and intensity of alcohol use over time. One of the most interesting aspects of the research was that the same amount of recovery was seen in both agnostics and atheists, which indicates that while spirituality is an important mechanism of behavioral change for AA, it is not the only method used. 

"Many people will be surprised that alcoholic patients with little or no interest in spirituality attended AA and seemed to change even more than did those who had a pre-existing, strong sense of spirituality," said Keith Humphreys, a Career Research Scientist with the Veterans Health Administration and Professor of Psychiatry at Stanford University. "AA is thus much more broad in its appeal than is commonly recognized." 

The researchers also noted that while spirituality is an important aspect of recovery, it is still not known how these beliefs work in complement or competition with other recovery methods, as there are multiple. 

"We have also found that AA participation leads to recovery by helping members change their social network and by enhancing individuals' recovery coping skills, motivation for continued abstinence, and by reducing depression and increasing psychological well-being," said Kelly. 

"Down the road it will be important to conduct more qualitative research as well as further quantitative replication of our findings in order to understand more about how exactly spiritual practices and beliefs influence coping and behavioral change in recovery from addiction

How to pick a good addiction facility for a loved one?

Summer-Sky- black Banner

 

Addiction treatment programs are vast across the internet. When searching for a good addiction treatment program sometimes consumers can get overwhelmed. Sober Sky has great pointers to help you in picking out the best addiction treatment programs.

 

  • Pick a program that has an experienced staff treating your loved one. It is important to find out how long the staff has been treating addictions. The longer a program has been in business treating addictions is always a good start.
  • Will the program that you send your loved one be exposed to 12- step approaches? Pick a program that introduces and individual to the 12- step programs. More people get sober and stay sober because of the 12-steps. All other promises or modalities are simply not proven and you should be cautious of any other claims.
  • The staff is the most important aspect of any good treatment program. In other words the people that treat your loved one need to know what they are doing. Once again experience is the best indicator of a great addiction treatment program.
  • Medical detox and counselors on staff are very important. A program that does not have licensed staff needs to be scrutinized. Some programs do exist that do not have licensed staff, but they are usually recovery centers and will not be using counseling. I recommend facilities of this nature under the section recovery centers. They are a totally different type of program. They are not treatment programs. Please go to section on recovery centers for more information on this type of program.

 

This is a short pointer list but can help you in picking a great treatment program. If you need assistance in finding a great program feel free to e-mail me at texasscottkelley@aol.com I am always available to help you in finding a good program.
