Unscripted, conversational and honest – like a morning TV chat show on the run – the first podcast sees host Susan Spence, a multi-skilled presenter who can also be heard on LBC, Radio Five Live and the Steve Allen Show chatting to Dr Hilary Jones about some pressing weight-related medical questions, talking to LighterLife Weight-Management Counsellor Lindsey Thompson-Wright from Loughton, Essex about the stories behind the weight loss of some of her clients and meeting with Rachel Drago, an inspirational client who tells why she believes LighterLife literally saved her life.

Rachel Drago hit the headlines a few months ago after losing five stone with LighterLife and losing 10 inches of fat off her breasts allowed her to discover a lump in her breast that was subsequently diagnosed as breast cancer. Plus listeners will be able to hear how 12 overweight men’s 52 stone weight loss with LighterLife gave them the confidence to strip naked and bare all to raise money for The Prostate Cancer Charity.

Upcoming episodes of the new weight loss podcast, Inside LighterLife, will include further expert advice from Psychotherapist Annie Wilson who will discuss some of the psychological reasons behind overeating, more inspirational weight-loss stories and advice and encouragement for overweight and obese people to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Available to download free from iTunes, podcast directories and the LighterLife website, Inside LighterLife gives clients the opportunity to listen to and identify with the experiences of others on the programme.

LighterLife Has Produced A Brand New Calendar To Help Raise Money For The Prostate Cancer Charity

LighterLife has produced a brand new calendar to help raise money for the Prostate Cancer Charity. The calendar features 12 men who have lost weight with LighterLife baring all for the cameras.

These brave men, from various walks of life had a variety of personal reasons for losing weight which ranged from being able to keep up their kids and reducing the risk of bad health, through to wanting to apply to become a fireman. What brought these men together was that they all had the same goal; to lose weight with LighterLife. With their lives changed for the better, they stripped down to not only celebrate their amazing weight loss, but to also raise money and awareness for a charity close to their hearts.

Lee, who posed for the month of January, lost six stone and is now running rings around his young football team. Gary, otherwise known as Mr. February, is six stone lighter and no longer lags behind the rest of his walking group. Lee, or Mr. March, has lost the five stone he put on after being diagnosed with testicular cancer.

Mark, who can be seen in the calendar in April, has a new lease on life and can keep up with his kids after losing four stone. Mike, or Mr. May, is no longer clinically obese and since losing just under three stone, is a faster and more confident water polo player. Five stone lighter, Nuno, or Mr. June, now has the confidence and the BMI to apply for his dream job as a fireman.

Former yo-yo dieter Phil, who posed for July, lost three stone which has given him the confidence to do what he loves – DJ’ing. Steven, or Mr. August, can now enjoy a full game of football without feeling tired and Rod, who features in September, is now training for a triathalon to help maintain his five stone weight loss.

LighterLife weight-management Counsellor Gina Lennon, who coordinated the men during the calendar photo shoot, said: “I’m delighted to have been involved in this project. There has been a great deal of interest and this has definitely put the fun back into fundraising. The calendar boys have achieved so much – losing such large amounts of weight, maintaining their weight loss, overcoming fears about their body image and baring all to raise money for a very worthwhile charity.”

Pet Owners Save a Trip to the Animal Clinic and Find Pet Meds Online

Pet owners find themselves as contented as their cats and dogs with more time in their afternoon as they save a trip to the vet. As more and more consumers turn to the online community to find what they need, pet lovers find all their petmeds needs on the web. No longer do they have to make an extra trip to the pet clinic or pet store to find Frontline, Heartgard, Sentinel or any other pet need because they can get it just as easily on the Internet, never leaving their house or the company of their pet. All pet medications are USDA/EPA approved and exactly what they’d expect to find in a vet’s office or pet store.

The Internet creates convenience for everyone, including owners of animals who may find it difficult to work their animal’s needs for pet meds in with their busy schedules. Why should pet owners have to travel to meet the health needs of their pets when the Internet provides every pet medication conveniently at the fingertips? Online pet stores are only as far away as the nearest computer. More and more pet owners realize that the convenience of online pet supply outlets can ease a schedule and provide more time in the day.

The health needs of pets can vary widely and get considerably expensive. With online petmeds, all forms of pet medicine and treatments are available in one location at prices that are considerably lower than a pet shop or vet clinic. The online store saves money by having less real estate and employee expenses to contend with. These savings can then be passed onto the pet owner through lower prices. Not only can pet lovers find everything they need for their pets easier, but the pet meds also tend to be less expensive.

Shipping costs have deterred some potential online shoppers, but many online stores get around this by offering reduced or free shipping. At Petmeds, for example, shipping on all orders over $39 is completely free, adding to the savings with reduced overhead.

About the Author:

Sam Sheppard is a long time pet owner and blogger who finds it hard to find time in his schedule to get all his pet meds for the animals he loves. With online petmeds, Sheppard finds more time not only for writing but for quality lap time for all his furry friends as well.

UK Enjoys Highest Net Income in Europe but Life Quality is Poorest

The UK and Ireland are the worst places in Europe to live, according to the latest uSwitch.com Quality of Life Index. While the UK enjoys the highest net household income in Europe, quality of life is the poorest, proving that there is more to good living than money. Long working hours, lower holiday entitlement and a high cost of living all contribute to a poor quality of life in the UK – and it’s not much better for the Irish either:

•Best quality of life can be found in France and Spain. The worst can be found in the UK and Ireland
•Depressing: UK workers can expect to work 3 years longer and die 2 years younger than their French counterparts
•Cost of living: consumers in the UK are paying above the European average for fuel, food, alcohol and cigarettes
•Health and education: the UK’s spend on healthcare and education is below the European average. Only Ireland and Poland spend less on healthcare, but Ireland has more doctors and hospital beds and Poland has more beds than the UK
•Longer life: Germany, Spain, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden all enjoy longer life expectancy than the UK
•Retirement age in the UK has dropped, but it is still the 4th highest in Europe
•UK enjoys highest net household income, but workers in the UK get lowest holiday entitlement in Europe.

The latest uSwitch.com European Quality of life Index reveals that people in the UK are still getting a raw deal compared with their European neighbours. Despite the fact that the UK enjoys the highest net household income in Europe – GBP35,730 a year, which is more than GBP10,000 a year above the European average – this does not translate into a good life. Instead, people in the UK can expect to work longer, die younger and enjoy lower standards of healthcare and education.

The uSwitch.com study examined 17 factors in order to understand where the UK sits in relation to nine other major European countries. Variables such as net income, taxes and the cost of essential goods, such as fuel, food and energy bills, were examined along with lifestyle factors, such as hours of sunshine, holiday entitlement, working hours and life expectancy to provide a complete picture of the quality of life experienced in each country.

The findings show that people in the UK and Ireland have the poorest quality of life, while the French and Spanish enjoy the highest. The UK gets the lowest number of days holiday per year, pays the highest prices for diesel and food and spends below the European average (as a percentage of GDP) on health and education. It also has the 4th lowest life expectancy in Europe and workers retire later than most of their European counterparts.

France, which topped the league, enjoys one of the lowest retirement ages, has the longest life expectancy in Europeand spends the most on healthcare Its workers also benefit from 34 days holiday a year – compared with only 28 in the UK – and it comes only behind Spain and Italy for hours of sunshine.

Spain, which topped the league last year, enjoys the most sunshine – but it has more to smile about than just that. The Spanish can expect to live a year longer than people in the UK, enjoy the highest number of days holiday in Europe (41 days a year) and pay the lowest fuel prices. And as if that’s not enough to celebrate, they are paying the lowest prices for alcohol too.

This year’s index does not reveal the full impact of the recession – this can be expected to show next year. However, France officially went into recession in May 2009 and has already emerged again (August 2009). This quick turnaround could see it maintaining a high quality of life despite the economic difficulties facing most European nations. Spain entered recession in February 2009 with no official announcement as to when it is likely to exit. Poland is the only country in the study not to have gone into recession and it is widely expected to avoid it throughout 2009.

Out of the two countries experiencing the lowest quality of life, Ireland went into recession first in September 2008 while the UK officially went into recession in January 2009. Both are yet to exit and the impact on the UK is expected to be severe and long lasting. Unemployment has already hit a 14 year high at 2.47 million workers or 7.9% of the workforce – the highest rate since 1995. Even with the UK due to start recovery shortly, the jobless toll is still expected to rise with the British Chambers of Commerce predicting numbers exceeding 3 million next year.

Importantly, as politicians start to plot a way out of the financial mire, quality of life in the UK could suffer even more. This is because public spending is likely to be reined in so that the amount spent in the UK on education and health could fall. The Labour Government has already indicated GBP2 billion of cuts to come on education but it has so far rejected advice from management consultants to cut the NHS workforce by 10% over the next 5 years. The UK is already spending below the European average (as a percentage of GDP) on both health and education.


The UK is spending below the European average (as a percentage of GDP) on both education and health. The largest shortfall is on health though, where the UK is spending 8.2% of GDP compared with the European average of 9%. Only Poland and Ireland spend less on health than the UK. France is the biggest investor, spending 11% of GDP on health, closely followed by Denmark and Germany.

The UK has 2.1 doctors per 1,000 people and 3.9 hospital beds. In contrast, France has 3.4 doctors and 7.3 beds. Poland, which spends less than the UK on health, has more hospital beds – 5.2 beds per 1,000 people. While Ireland spends less than the UK, but achieves a greater number of doctors per 1,000 and a higher number of hospital beds (2.9 doctors per 1,000 and 5.6 beds).

Lower spending on education and health could also be a contributing factor to the UK’s lower than average life expectancy, which is 4th lowest in Europe. There is some evidence to suggest that people who are better educated live longer and in better health than those who are less educated. This link between education and health cannot be explained by behavioural differences alone and has led scholars to suggest that having the right educational policies could improve a nation’s health considerably.

As well as shorter lives, people in the UK can expect to work for longer than most of their European neighbours too. The average European retirement age is 62 years old, however UK workers can expect to carry on working for 6 months longer than this. Poland has the lowest retirement age at just over 59 years old, closely followed by France. In real terms, these differences mean that UK workers can expect to work 3 years longer and die 2 years younger than their French counterparts.

Well being

Workers in the UK put in an average of 37 hours a week. Spain, France, Italy and Poland all work longer hours, but they also benefit from more days off. While workers in the UK get the lowest holiday entitlement in Europe – 28 days a year – the Spanish benefit from 41 days a year, the highest entitlement. As a result, UK workers can expect to work an average of 5 days more a year than their European counterparts and 13 days a year more than their Spanish counterparts. Over a lifetime of work (45 years) a Spanish worker could expect to have over 5 years off as holiday, while a UK worker could expect to have just over 3 years off.

Ann Robinson, Director of Consumer Policy at uSwitch.com, says: “There is more to good living than money and this report shows why so many Brits are giving up on the UK and heading to France and Spain. We earn substantially more than our European neighbours, but this level of income is needed just to keep a roof over our heads, food on the table and our homes warm. It’s giving us a decent standard of living, but it’s not helping us achieve the quality of life that people in other countries enjoy.

“For too long the focus in the UK has been on standard of living rather than quality of life. As a result we have lost all sense of balance between wealth and well-being. The recession could prove to be a turning point, forcing us to re-evaluate our way of life, get back to basics and to the things that really count. Consumers are already beginning to do this – the Government and its policymakers would do well to follow suit.”

Narconon, Drug-Free, Non-Profit, Drug Rehab Treatment

Narconon Vista Bay goes to the Fair! The Monterey County Fair is one of the largest in the state of California, with an average of 65,000 visitors. Taking advantage of that opportunity, Narconon Northern california had a booth in the middle of the action. The goal was to provide free drug education for children and also mingle with members of the community.

Over the five days of the fair, Narconon drug education material was placed in the hands of over 4000 children. While at the booth, kids enjoyed a prize wheel and gifts, as parents and community members appreciated the positive Narconon approach to drug prevention and education. The informative material offered was enjoyed by all.

Narconon programs assist schools across the country in meeting several criteria for the United States Department of Education, Title IV (Safe & Drug Free School) funds. Trends of youth substance abuse are tracked and monitored, and program presentations and training is modified to meet the ever changing needs of society. Prevention is the goal of drug education.

Perhaps the most unique concept behind Narconon Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment is that it is completely drug-free. The treatment has at least a 70% success rate. It is based on techniques developed by L. Ron Hubbard, an author and philosopher. Each single component or phase of the treatment is designed to increase the abilities of the client.

Narconon is a drug-free treatment method that consists of two main stages; detoxification and rehabilitation. Besides nutritional supplements, sauna sessions are an important part of the detoxification stage. Rehabilitation includes specific courses designed to increase communication skills, study skills, orientation to the environment, understanding of moral principles, and preparation for work.

With a success rate of 76%, the “Narconon Drug Rehab” is backed by a ‘Graduate Assurance Plan’. The plan promises graduates following approved discharge plans that relapse within six months of the program, will be re-admitted at no charge. “Narconon Prescription Drug Treatment” is available for a flat fee, and the duration is based on need, not insurance coverage.

Free Joint Pain Relief Analyzer Launched

While some struggle to relieve daily joint pain, many are overcoming their joint pain quickly and easily. Largely, because they have mastered the proven (but little-known) methods of preventing joint pain from becoming overwhelming, before it’s too late.

That’s the opinion of Joint Pain Relief Today, online joint pain relief resource and designer of this new free tool, the Joint Pain Analyzer.

“Middle-aged individuals today need solid, reliable information on what works in relieving joint pain – and what doesn’t,” says Mary Ogden, joint pain specialist. “As an online joint pain specialist, I have hundreds of people contacting me, asking questions such as:

– How can I relieve my joint pain so I can get started with my day without being slowed-down by joint pain?

– How can I prevent and protect myself against significant joint pain in the first place?

“I designed the free Joint Pain Analyzer tool, to give these folks some of the answers. What makes this joint pain tool different is this: it’s not based upon theories or untested ideas. Each of the methods built into the joint pain analyzer tool has been thoroughly tested. The tool’s answers have been checked by medical professionals and in real-world joint pain relief.”

Unlike many of today’s joint pain services, Ogden points out, this new joint pain tool has been released at no charge. “A lot of organizations and individuals can’t afford to hire joint pain consultants or joint pain relief specialists. And it takes time to read an entire medical book, listen to a CD or attend a joint pain seminar,” notes Ogden. “This free joint pain analyzer has been created for them, and takes less than 2 minutes to get.”

Personal joint pain data analyzed in the free joint pain analyzer include:

– how joint pain is currently affecting the daily life of the patient
– why joint pain prevention is so important and what to do
– where to get effective, free help on boosting your joint pain relief

The Joint Pain Analyzer can be accessed online free, right now by visiting: Joint Pain Relief Today

Tier 2 Consulting announced today that the next phase of the development of Healthlogistics’ HL-hybris catalogue and contract management system is about to begin. This will deliver outstanding search, contract generation and dashboard functionality for both Trusts and suppliers.

As part of the roll-out, some 900 suppliers working with these ten Trusts, including Kings College Hospital, Royal Brompton & Harefield and Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trusts, are now or will soon be providing filtered product, price and contract data via their dedicated web portal where they can securely and confidentially access data specific to them.

These acute and acute Foundation Trusts are pioneering the adoption of private-sector best practices and are keen to achieve the cost benefits of efficient supply chain management and data synchronicity.

Commenting on the continuing development of HL-hybris, Healthlogistics’ Director Peter Elwin said, “As a hybris Premium Business Partner, Tier 2 Consulting has a proven track record in system integration and configuration.

Winners Of The Cosmetic Surgery Competition Reveal Their Experiences With Their Cosmetic Surgery Treatments In Prague

Five UK ladies, winners of the UK Cosmetic Surgery Competition run by http://www.cosmetic-plastic-surgery.info, underwent their chosen surgical treatments in Prague, Czech Republic.

Charlotte, Helen, Kathryn, Vicky and Clare shared a dream: that cosmetic plastic surgery would change their life for the better. Each of them had a different problem, impeding either their private life or their career opportunities.

Helen, 27, from Shelf Halifax said: “For me, the surgery was not necessarily just so that I could look pretty in clothes, but to close a chapter of my life that was very hard to deal with. At 14 years old, I was scouted by a model agency but put on four stone within the next year, so my hopes were dashed. I found being overweight to be very depressing and hard to deal with, and my saggy stomach was a constant reminder of those days. I felt like I was carrying a piece of someone else around with me and found it so frustrating that I couldn’t do anything to get rid of it after I had worked so hard to lose the weight.”

Life changed for Helen and her co-winners during May – June 2009 when they all underwent their chosen cosmetic surgeries. Tummy tuck, rhinoplasty, breast remodelling and breast enlargement were performed by leading Czech plastic surgeons: Tomas Dolezal M.D., Josef Kulhanek M.D., Karel Urban M.D., Roman Kufa M.D. and Libor Kment M.D.

“I really enjoyed the whole experience and I would recommend to anyone who is considering surgery to go for it. It really has changed my mind and I would do it all again in a heartbeat. The staff of the Esthe clinic was really helpful and I felt really looked after. Again „Thank you!“ for this fantastic opportunity and you have truly changed my life forever!” said Charlotte (22), a young mother from London. She had had two children at a very young age, which had completely ruined her breasts. The resultant loss of shape and too much of excess skin destroyed her confidence as a woman. In the end, it ruined her relationship with the father of her children and caused a deep depression and feelings of insecurity in starting a new relationship.

Pavel Hilbert, Chief Executive of http://www.cosmetic-plastic-surgery.info said: “Breast enlargement surgery restored Charlotte‘s self-confidence. She is once again the happy young lady she used to be, enjoying life, her kids and a new relationship.” She is only one of the thousands of satisfied patients who have placed themselves into the skilled hands of Czech plastic surgeons. The Czech Republic, a centre of modern plastic surgery, numbers among countries with a low rate of MRSA infections compared to Great Britain, Ireland, USA or Japan, for example. Czech plastic surgeons are highly educated, trained, skilled and qualified. “We are happy we have helped five ladies achieve their dreams, allowing them to take advantage of the high-quality care and dedicated professional service of Czech plastic surgeons.” adds Hilbert

Online Sexual Partners Calculator

According to new research released by Lloydspharmacy, the typical British adult has slept indirectly with 2,811,024 people.

The leading community pharmacy chain has developed an online calculator which allows people to work out the number of indirect sexual partners they have had.

The sexual partners calculator has been developed to help people understand the risks of unprotected sex. According to the Health Protection Agency, cases of sexually transmitted infections rose last year by 0.5%, to 399,738 and cases of Chlamydia increased by eight per cent between 2006 and 2008.

The average British man claims to have had nine sexual partners while the average women claims 6.3 partners, giving an overall average of 7.65. However, as the new calculator demonstrates, they are potentially exposed to the sexually transmitted diseases of hundreds of thousands of others.

The calculator, which uses data collected from more than 6,000 UK adults, is called Sex Degrees of Separation, a reference to the famous theory first proposed by Hungarian writer Frigyes Karinthy which states that no one person is more than six steps removed from another.

When people enter the age range of each partner, the calculator raids its database to work out how many previous sexual partners people within that age range have had on average. It then repeats this process for five further ‘generations’ of partner. This is added together to give a Sex Degrees of Separation total.

The launch of the calculator coincides with the introduction of Lloydspharmacy’s Relationship Screen, an online postal service which allows people and their partners to have a Chlamydia test – the most common STI in the UK – Gonorrhoea test and HIV test before committing to full intimacy.

Clare Kerr, head of sexual health at Lloydspharmacy said: “When we sleep with someone, we are, in effect, not only sleeping with them, but also their previous partners and their partners’ previous partners, and so on. It’s important that people understand how exposed they are to STIs and take appropriate precautions including using condoms and getting themselves checked out where appropriate.

“A simple sexual health test will give both partners in a relationship peace of mind. The majority of STIs are easy to rectify, but if left untreated, the long term implications can be very serious.”

The Sex Degrees of Separation calculator, and more information about Lloydpharmacy’s sexual health services, can be found at online.

Reed expressed enthusiasm about the results of his procedure. The Olympic champion said: “I am absolutely delighted with my new and perfect vision from Optical Express. It’s not just the brand new feeling of being able to see better than 20/20, but the convenience of not having to use contacts or glasses for my training and racing.”

Beyond mere results, however, Reed was impressed with the quality of care and customer service offered by Optical Express, as well as, “the swift procedure, the short recovery time and the aftercare. In fact, every step from booking to clarity of vision has been a breeze.”

As an athlete who relies on his sight for his performance, Reed is eager to encourage others not to hesitate in moving forward with laser eye surgery. He said: “I wish I’d had it done sooner. Don’t be worried – just go for it.”

Swine Flu Could Trigger Boom In Remote Diagnosis

Lloydspharmacy has revealed a new report that suggests the government’s use of the internet and call centres to deal with the swine flu pandemic could pave the way for a rapid growth in remote diagnosis and prescriptions. This was just one of the conclusions found in the report by the Future Foundation.

Judith Kleine Holthause, the report’s lead author, said:”Despite its clinical shortcomings, the use of the internet and call centres for diagnosing swine flu and distributing medication demonstrates that remote diagnosis can be an efficient way of dealing with certain conditions.”

The Future Foundation forecasts that 37% of people will be using the web for medical information by 2020 (up from 14% in 2009) and that a variety of social and economic factors will lead to a substantial market for online diagnosis and prescriptions in the future.

The report, commissioned by Lloydspharmacy, coincides with the roll-out of ‘virtual GPs’ into 300 of the chain’s pharmacies. Lloydspharmacy has pioneered online diagnosis and prescription.

Now the chain has innovated again by allowing customers to walk into a pharmacy, consult with a doctor from a computer terminal and walk out with their prescriptions a few minutes later.

Andy Murdock, pharmacy relations and governance director of Lloydspharmacy, said: “The face to face consultation will remain at the heart of primary care, but for an increasing array of conditions, remote services provide a viable alternative.

“Right now these include lifestyle conditions such as impotence and hair loss, embarrassing conditions such as STIs, contraception and certain minor ailments such as cystitis. But the list could expand considerably in the future.”

However the report’s authors warn that regulation will be critical if privately run diagnosis and prescription services are to grow. At present only one online doctor service is registered with the Care Quality Commission explicitly to manage patients remotely. That service, Dr Thom, also provides the GP component of the Lloydspharmacy service.

There is no question that consumers are receptive to the concept. Forty eight per cent of respondents to a poll conducted for the Future Foundation said they were interested in online diagnosis and 56% said they were interested in online prescriptions.

Holthaus added: “In certain areas consumers welcome regulation. Concerns about counterfeit medicines, bogus doctors and commercial motivations will inevitably act as a brake on consumer confidence in remote diagnosis services. We believe that more regulation, monitoring and control will be crucial to the further development of this market.

“There are strong arguments for why the NHS might embrace remote diagnosis as a complementary method to ensure sufficient delivery of satisfactory health care in the future. If regulated and monitored appropriately remote diagnoses and prescriptions could benefit the healthcare system in similar ways as remote services have helped the banking system.”

The Lloydspharmacy Online Doctor service is run in conjunction with online health experts Dr Thom, who adhere to the General Medical Council’s guidelines on remote prescribing. Patients log on for an online questionnaire-based consultation with a GP. If clinically appropriate the GP writes a prescription and the treatment is dispensed by post for next day delivery.

Take The Stress Out Of Finding The Right Drug Addiction Treatment Center

Addiction treatments are only as successful as the treatment centers that administer them. That sounds obvious, but the truth is that too many prospective rehab patients assume that every facility must be more or less the same. This simply isn’t the case. In fact, only those rehab centers which properly recognize and cater to their clients’ needs can ever be expected to affect meaningful long-term healing.

The practical implication here is that you have to do your research before making a rehabilitation decision. It isn’t enough to simply pick a treatment center based on price or convenience; if you’re going to get better, it’s going to be because you find a place that can meet each and every one of your unique individual needs. Given the stakes in the fight against drug addiction, it’s hard to imagine how you could ever settle for any sort of inferior option.

Addictions-Treatments.com is a site devoted to finding you the best addiction treatment center possible. If you’d like more information on addiction recovery programs, please call 1-877-771-6160, visit our website at http://www.addictions-treatments.com/, or contact us at admissions@addictions-treatments.com.

Expert Services Find You The Best Drug Rehab Center Possible

Affluent addiction victims routinely seek treatment from rehab facilities that can help them get sober without compromising their luxurious living standards. Unfortunately, that search is often impeded by a lack of transparency in the luxury rehab industry.

Now, though, prospective rehab patients have a trusted source on the inside.

LuxuryDrugRehab.com is pleased to announce a new referral service linking affluent addiction victims to the best treatment and recovery facilities on earth. The goal of LuxuryDrugRehab.com is to help those victims find the facility that’s exactly right for them. To do that, the service provides clients with expert personal advice and a thorough understanding of the treatment options available to them.

For drug abuse victims and their families, that sort of insight can literally make a world of difference.

Rehab is always an arduous process. To complete it successfully, patients need to feel wholly supported in their efforts, and wholly comfortable in their environments. The logical corollary, of course, is that the best rehab facilities are those which best meet the individual needs of their individual clients. In the end, there’s no other way to achieve meaningful and lasting recovery.

The bad news, though, is that those principles aren’t always put into practice.

It’s one thing for a drug rehab center to say that it cares about its clients. It’s quite another thing for that facility to live out the meaning of its marketing slogans. The unfortunate truth is that many of the most “exclusive” treatment centers in Los Angeles fall far short of their own standards of service. As should be obvious, those centers are woefully ineffective in helping their residents heal.

LuxuryDrugRehab.com is a referral service dedicated to connecting callers with the right alcohol or drug rehab centers. To learn more about the service, please call 1-888-488-0088, or visit the LuxuryDrugRehab.com. Online visitors will find testimonials, staff profiles, and other valuable information about drug rehab facilities and the rehabilitation experience.

Friends, Parents And Other Relatives Of Drug Addicts And Alcoholics Are Most Likely To Be The People Who First Contact A Drug Rehab

Narconon, a Drug and Alcohol Treatment Facility with a treatment center near Watsonville, CA, receives thousands of calls per year. A remarkably large percentage of those calls come from people who are desperate to get their loved ones off drugs.

“Frequently, the last person to admit they have a problem is the addict,” Mike Dipalma, CCDC, RASi at Narconon, said. “It usually takes the influence of an intervention, or even just the concern of a family member, to initiate the rehab process.”

DiPalma said that the caring telephone counselors at Narconon are very good at putting callers at ease.

“We know that rehab is not a pleasant experience for anybody,” DiPalma said. “We’re trying to save somebody’s life here. So we’re quick to analyze that situation and help to get the addict into treatment.”

DiPalma added that callers to Narconon are usually surprised by both the program’s unique approach to rehab, as well as the established effectiveness of Narconon treatment.

Since its founding in Arizona State Prison in the 1960s, Narconon has promoted a non-drug, educational approach to rehab. When a person is admitted into Narconon, he does not become a patient. He becomes a student.

“Narconon is all about learning,” Dipalma said. “It’s about learning how you got to be an addict in the first place, how to keep from being an addict in the future, and most importantly, how to break your habit now and forever, without the use of ‘replacement drugs’ or 12-step programs.”

Indeed, it’s these programs that frequently defeat the entire purpose of rehab. DiPalma said that 12-step programs, for example, force the addict to admit that they’re weak and will never truly overcome their problem. Drug replacement methods, such as methadone treatment for heroin addicts, frequently just create another addiction for the addict to overcome.

“At Narconon, we believe you can overcome your addiction for good. You can live without drugs when you understand why you started taking them in the first place,” Dipalma said.

The Narconon program was established to help people suffering from substance dependencies, with the goal of freeing them and their families from the devastation of drug or alcohol abuse. Narconon of Northern California opened its drug and alcohol rehabilitation program in 1992, in Bonny Doon, California. Launched by “word of mouth” publicity, ongoing success resulted in the relocation of the residential treatment program to a larger campus in Santa Cruz, CA. The Narconon treatment facility of Northern California program now graduates 150 clients annually. It includes a center in Placerville and a new center in South Lake Tahoe, CA.

Sports Are An Effective Drug Deterrent, Study Says

A recent Women’s Sport Foundation study shows people who participate in sports are less likely to engage in illicit drug use, a conclusion shared by Narconon.

A well known addiction treatment organization, Narconon offers a variety of athletic activities as a key component of the treatment programs at addiction rehab centers it operates. The organization also promotes sports and sponsors sporting events as a way of offering communities an alternative to drug use, while sending a message about drug-free, healthy activities. The core concept is that participating in sports not only engages the participants, promoting a healthy lifestyle for children and adults, but athletic competition is also much more enjoyable and rewarding than drug use. The Women’s Sport Foundation study validates this position with its finding that the incidence of drug use decreases for people who are actively involved in sports.

Narconon President Clark Carr points out: “Our drug educators and community volunteers have been endlessly creative in raising public awareness, understanding, and commitment.” Part of that creativity has been expressed through hosting or organizing a wide range of sporting events, among them: golf tournaments, celebrity softball games, international marathons, hockey games featuring NHL alumni, bicycle tours and European football matches. Besides the health benefits gained by those participating in athletic endeavors, Narconon staff and volunteers are on hand at these events to provide educational drug awareness material and promote the advantages of a drug-free lifestyle. A community that has fun, engaging and competitive recreational sports options available for youth and adults alike, has accessible alternatives that can make the difference between making a healthy choice, or turning to drugs out of boredom.

Even when not directly hosting the event, Narconon participation or sponsorship is evident in many other organized sports activities throughout the world, including Narconon sponsored racing cars, community soccer teams throughout Europe and the Narconon Miracles hockey team. Besides its involvement in sporting events, Narconon also partners with community organizations and government agencies to provide drug education programs to thousands of school children across the United States and throughout the world.

Additional information about Narconon community education projects, sponsored sporting events and addiction treatment programs may be found at www.calnarconon.org. Information about the Women’s Sport Foundation may be found at its web site: www.womenssportsfoundation.org.
