Do you, or someone you know, have an Addiction and you want to end it? I can help recommend a treatment center that will help you or your loved one end the Addiction for good. I had an Addiction for 16 years. I wanted to end my Addiction as I no longer liked it, but could not stop on my own. I tried many times to end my Addiction on my own, but the aches and pains (dope sick) from the Addiction did not allow me to end it. I was Addicted to oxycontin. The Addiction started off innocently enough from the result of a car accident. I was prescribed Percocet for the pain. I was forewarned as well to be careful with the prescribed Pain Killer Percocet as it is highly Addictive. Well, 16 years later, I was still a full blown Addict. By the time I finished the first 30 Percocet , I was already an Addict in the making. I finally got the help that I so desperately needed by an intervention that was done on me for my Addiction. I, of course, said YES to treatment. I was on my way to ending my Addiction.
If you or your loved one is addicted to Oxycontin, Morphine, Diludid or any prescription Drugs…
Crack, Cocaine (soft and hard), Heroin, Crystal meth, Ecstacy, Mushrooms or any street Drugs…
Alcohol (yes, I said alcohol as I know you have a loved one who is Addicted to alcohol, perhaps even you)…I can help you or your loved one break free from the Addiction.
What??!! You want to help your loved one but can’t get them to go? You need an intervention specialist? Hiring an interventionist will help you get your loved one the help they need. Addiction is very hard for them to end on their own, as all addicts will tell you they can end the addiction on their own. I know this all too well. I said the same thing to myself every day for 16 years. If the Intervention was not done to me, I would still be saying and trying to convince myself.
“I don`t need help for my Addiction, I can quit on my own”
How many times have you heard this or have been told this by the addict? Here is another one addicts are famous for saying (I know, I always said it to myself or to friends that knew I had an Addiction Problem)…
“After this fix, I am gonna quit, I am done with it. I hate it, I can’t do it anymore ”
Guess what? They never quit! Time to get an Intervention Specialist. I can help you with this as well by getting your Addicted loved one to a Treatment center. With my 16 years of Addiction, and walking in the same footsteps as your loved one, I can successfully do the intervention and personally escort the Addict to the Treatment center.
To date ,I have been 100% successful in doing interventions and am confident I can help your loved one end their Addiction.
When the Addiction treatment is completed, I will always be available for ongoing support with respect to the Addiction. You will have access to my telephone number which you can call at anytime.
Maybe you need help with understanding ADDICTION? I will help guide you in the right direction of understanding all aspects of Addiction. This will help you better understand why your loved one became Addicted, as well as give you the tools you need to help support them once they have completed the Addiction program.
To date, I have been clean for 28 months! Life is great because I no longer have a Addiction Problem. Do you or a loved one have an ADDICTION Problem? Do you want to end your Addiction, or theirs?
Please answer these three simple Questions:
1) Deep inside your heart, do you really want to end the ADDICTION once and for all????
2) Do you really love living this lifestyle because of your ADDICTION ???
3) Do you really want to end this ADDICTION, but you can’t as the ADDICTION has a stranglehold on you?
If you answered Yes to to question 1, answered No to question 2, and answered Yes to question 3,
then you want to end the Addiction. Contact me now by e-mail or telephone so I can help you End your Addiction
by providing Intervention Service, recommending a treatment center and rehab placement to help you become drug free.
“Time to End Addiction for Good“
Hi folks, my name is Cliff Van Rossum. I have been clean now, as I said earlier, for 28 months and life really is grand. I have turned my life around and am so happy with my second chance. I quit my full-time job to become an Interventionist. I want to help as many people as I can to free them from their Addiction. I can personally tell you from Experience that all Addicts are tired of the lifestyle, they hate it and really deep inside their hearts they want to quit! They just can’t stand it anymore, but are unable to end the Addiction on their own. They are married to the drug, as was I. All that matters to them is the drug, this is how bad an Addiction is, everything else in their life is secondary. Until they get the help that is needed to end the Addiction, they will not change. I am 49 years old, I want to help as many people as I can. Is your loved one in need of help? Are you in need of help? Then please fill out the form here or contact me at 604 916 7757 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking forward to hearing from you. LET’S SAVE A LIFE.

2012 reports that the British Columbia chief provincial medical health officer
has joined four former mayors and four former BC attorney’s general
and is promoting the immediate de-criminalization of marijuana,
and regulation of cannabis supply and use.
It is said that the war on illicit marijuana suppliers and users has failed. That criminal syndicates use marijuana grow – ops to sell marijuana to stoners in Canada, and the US so as to provide funding for other criminal activities. Marijuana growing and use has a long history in British Columbia.
According to reports, around one half of the population of Britsh Columbia would like to cannabis decriminalized - opening a potential floodgate to more widespread use of cannabis by people who would like to use it, as an alternative to tobacco and alcohol, people who choose not to use cannabis today, because it is illegal.
Despite marijuana use being prohibited, except for medical purposes, cities such as Vancouver BC enjoy a reputation for widespread cannabis use. At the turn of the century, alcohol prohibition was enforced in the USA, and to some extent in Canada – such was the force of public demand for alcohol use, that it swept prohibition away, leading to what is now a State controlled multi billion dollar retail alcohol trade.
If marijuana was to come under regulation and supply, by government authority, it would very likely be big business, as is the supply of alcohol. The Vancouver Sun also reports that the RCMP in British Columbia has seized nearly 11 tons of illicitly grown marijuana, over the past fifteen months.
No one disputes that marijuana is a drug, that it has some negative side effects, and that it’s use can be addictive. The anti-drug proliferation viewpoint argues against making the use of a harmful drug legal, despite the fact that opinion polls say that many people want to see marijuana use legalized – people given an official green light to smoke marijuana, and to use it legally as a psychoactive food additive.
The current situation creates a dilemna - ideally, governments would be free to chase after the crims that use illicitly grown marijuana as a cash crop to fund their illegal activities, to treat them in the same way as we do other criminals.
No one suggests that shoplifting and burglary should be decriminalized because so many people do it, and we are at a loss to stop it.
Shoplifting cases often are the most trivial of “crimes” - people steal an item of minimal value that they don’t need or want – the reason being that they have a psychological need to act out in this way. Some say that shoplifting, where items of notional value are involved, is more a cry of distress - indicative of a need for more emotional support and help, than of criminal intent.
It could even be argued that robbery has some justification in terms of being a demand for social adjustment - all crimes against a community can be seen as attempted restitution, a clawing back of wealth and value by people who otherwise feel socially disempowered.
Given genuine opportunity to “make good”, most crims will respond favorably to the chance to become a mainstream citizen – prefer rehabilitation to a life of continued crime.
Governments wield considerable power in terms of directing human behavior. Whether we like it or not, government power is paternal in nature, and it’s policies will determine to a large extent relative levels of power and influence as between various sections of the community.
A pro-drug stance that caters to people’s emotional frailties and vulnerability, instead of policies that support independence, personal autonomy and genuine freedom of choice, is essentially disempowering.
As children in the home ultimately thrive on appropriate discipline, so communities can be strengthened by just and proper laws.
The people in the general community will not benefit at all by the introduction of policies that both encourage and facilitate increased drug dependence.
Strong communities foster drug resilience in their populations, using methods that promote self esteem and equal opportunity, reaping the rewards in terms of genuine productivity, and less social depression and distress.
Increasingly, the evidence is that widespread drug use, by individuals and within various sectors of the community, correlates with an experience of social frustration and disempowerment.
It is not human nature to go on the offensive, to start a revolution if there is a more passive means of obtaining the same result – it is too easy to get relief from the tension created by frustration and disempowerment by resort to substance abuse.
Canada already has enough problems, caused by substance abuse as an easy solution to complex issues - for example the recent use of OxyContin as a “resolution” of chronic pain and illness.
Giving people a pacifier keeps them quiet, occupied, content.
The damage is in the opportunity cost of what people could achieve in terms of healthy innovation if they were to spit the dummy out, and become more healthy, effective, productive.
The decriminalization of marijuana goes far beyond medical use – to de-criminalize marijuana means that people can access marijuana for recreational purposes, ultimately turning off their genes for autonomous and innovative behavior, ultimately becoming increasingly drug dependent.
Most likely if marijuana is decriminalized, it’s supply and distribution will be delegated to the medical profession as being the sector of the community best equipped to deal with drugs.
A hint of anxiety, a stressful day – and you have got a prescription for marijuana, to be dispensed by a pharmacist on request.
This system has worked with opioid drugs for the treatment of physical pain.
We should not be encouraging widespread cannabinoid use - to ease the pain of social injustice.

A stitch in time, saves nine, and never more true than for substance abuse and drug prevention programs that target kids in schools. In Vancouver BC, timely drug prevention programs could help to prevent Vancouver, British Columbia from being the substance abuse capital of Canada.
All kids are at risk in a city known worldwide for having a pro-marijuana stance, with municipal mayors in the past having supported the pro-drug lobby, and widespread support for the decriminalization of marijuana, and more leniency with other drugs.
Real families don’t want drugs in their homes, don’t want to see their children destroyed from an early age by compulsive drug use – don’t want to allow marijuana or any other addictive drug to be used by their kids.
Families today, and teachers in schools are at the coalface, and have to deal daily, on behalf of the kids, with the temptation and reality of drug abuse and addiction.
It is not enough to tell your child that they must not use drugs of any kind because they are dangerous, unhealthy and can lead to death. Children don’t have the same experience of life that most adults have. To a child life is a vast potential where anything might happen, with no thoughts of death.
Many drugs are marketed with children the target market – we need to make children aware of the risks with effective drug prevention programs that cut through the drug hype that associates drug use with pleasure and fantasy – a fairy tale come true.
For other children the use of drugs is attractive for the reason that drug use will offset the pain of everyday life, particularly those children who come from a home where a parent is drug addicted, where there is poverty and an absence of care.
What makes a school drug prevention program effective is engagement with the children. Drug educaton is more than presenting facts and information, quoting statistics about drug use.
No one ever thinks that it will be them who will become one of the fatal drug statistics when they are laughing with their drug using friends, getting high on dope at the weekend.
Fears are often played upon to get what appears to be a positive reaction from kids attending a drug prevention program.
It is well known that under stress, people think emotionally, and are less able to hear and process vital drug prevention strategies. Fear has no place in drug prevention – children can make their decisions best when simply presented with the facts, and invited as intelligent children to come to their own conclusions.
Some drug prevention programs fail because they are too much like a lesson in school – interesting in parts, otherwise completely boring.
Making drug education come alive, and really get through to the children requires active participation – an engagement between the presenter and the children that gets the message across.
Narconon is a world wide alcohol and drug addiction recovery specialist, established since the 1960′s. Narconon also makes visits to schools for drug prevention.
People wanting to use an effective drug prevention program for children in their care can contact Narconon Vancouver – of Vancouver BC, Canada for the information that they need.
Today as drugs become more available, more toxic children need to be told the truth about drug toxicity, side effects and the real risk of addiction with any form of psychoactive drug.
The Narconon drug prevention program uses simple language and concepts that all children can understand and relate to – with genuine stories of addiction and recovery. For kids who see drug use in the home, who may be drug users themselves, the Narconon drug prevention program brings a message of hope – of happiness in the future.
From Narconon children receive an education about drugs and drug abuse. They are not just given a list of do’es and don’ts. For kids who have already become exposed to drug use consideration must be given to using a Narconon comprehensive drug recovery program, in which hopefully the child’s family will participate – to the benefit of the child.
Behind the Narconon Vancouver drug prevention program is Tibor Palatinus, an expert in the field of drug detox and rehabilitation – and drug prevention for schools.
Tibor Palatinus talks with CTV about the recent spate of Ecstasy deaths in British Columbia,and throughout Canada. The important thing to know about drug use is that even one experience of drug abuse can make you want to use more. No drug addict ever started out, wanting to become addicted
Children who are taught the facts about drugs in a non-confrontational way, gain insight into what drugs do, and gain drug resilience. People look for ways to enhance drug resilience in children – children who are fully informed, and who have made their own personal commitment to avoiding drug use – have the resilience to stand up against drug abuse in any given situation.
Narconon has a proven history of success with it’s drug recovery and drug prevention programs. For people with a need to provide effective substance abuse help for kids – the Narconon drug prevention school education programs are the best, enabling children to look at the downside of drug use, and to make positive decision of their own initiative.
Narconon Vancouver puts old heads on young shoulders – where substance abuse in Vancouver is concerned – so that young people can easily - just say no to drugs.

Of concern is the fact that there are around 400,000 people in British Columbia that have problems with addiction and substance abuse – that costs British Columbia over $6 billion a year.
While responsible management in the workplace puts into action programs and plans that bring increased awareness of the risks and dangers of substance abuse in the workplace, and develop strategies to identify employees who are at risk, the end result will only be as effective as the substance abuse recovery programs that employees can use to recover from substance abuse.
Managers looking for effective alcohol and drug rehab for employees to use, will often settle for rehab that involves the use of maintenance drugs. Employers might tend to choose such programs as they come recommended by doctors trained in the medical model of drug rehabilitation.
Drug maintenance programs are not recovery focused, and favor the use of maintenance drugs – to be given to patients as part of an ongoing supervised drug support program by medically trained drug addiction specialists.
In many ways drug maintenance programs are an outmoded style in terms of best practice there is today for complete addiction recovery. There are many issues involved if a substance abusing employee wants to get clean of his habit and become a more reliable and effective employee.
While on a drug maintenance program, and such programs are intended to continue for years, employees are left in virtually the same position as when abusing recreational drugs. There is no magic difference as between street drugs and the drugs that are issued to addicts on drug maintenance programs.
Your employee on a drug maintenance program remains a workplace hazard and a risk to much the same extent that they were, prior to using the program. Sedation by use of maintenance drugs leaves an employee vulnerable to injury and death when using industrial machinery, if required to drive, and impaired when making critical business decisions.
Often maintenance drugs don’t adequately cover withdrawal symptoms that can make people irritable and inattentive to their duties. Because drug maintenance programs don’t bring about recovery, the relapse rate is high – the failure rate of drug maintenance programs is estimated to be up to 90% of people who start the program.
What employers want is a program that can be relied upon – a program that is recovery focused. Too many people think that drug rehab has to be like the celebrity circus – with substance abusers booking in, every time their life hits a crisis, with no effective work done, in between, to resolve the causes of their addiction.
Underpinning drug maintenance programs, is the dogmatic belief of some, that addiction is a form of disease – that can never be cured.
Substance abuse is effectively cured with a change in attitude.
Comprehensive drug and alcohol addiction recovery programs have a capacity to bring about change in an employees attitude.
A change of attitude is not the same as behavioral change – although you will notice a positive improvement in behavior, in all behavior, all of the time, when there has been a fundamental change of attitude.
Typical substance abusers have a poor attitude towards safety issues, towards risk taking behavior, and communicate very badly, if at all with management and work mates.
Although misconduct might appear to be directed against the employer, generating rightful anger, and generally a dismissal, when addiction is understood as being a form of developmental failure – it can easily be seen that addicts engage in conduct that is a way of trying to work things out. Typically, a company structure can stand in the place of a parent with whom an addict still has “issues’ that are unresolved.
In some cases an employer can enhance workplace dynamics – particularly where substance abuse affects large sections of the workforce, by making the extra effort to walk a mile in the employees shoes, to see that substance abuse and misconduct is ultimately a persona adopted to mask and avoid feelings of vulnerability, in the workplace, and in the world.
Learning better impulse control, gaining self respect, learning commitment to a task, and to communicate better – all this will happen, and more, as a person proceeds with the coursework on comprehensive substance abuse programs in Canada that bring an end to substance abuse and addiction.
Motivated employees can complete a comprehensive program either side of six months – when addicts leave a comprehensive program they are drug free, clear thinking, and connected with the values and community spirit that otherwise was lacking.
Graduates of comprehensive alcohol and drug recovery programs have a capacity to be industry leaders of the future, and to go back to a former job with commitment, resilience and purpose.
Any company that has a problem of substance abuse among it’s workers suffers in terms of the opportunity cost of engaging sober, productive employees, who have a team attitude and commitment to corporate policies.
Retaining and rehabilitating employees who have got into substance abuse or addiction makes sense - with comprehensive, effective drug rehabilitation – you will reap the long term benefits of increased productivity, mutual loyalty, and support.

There is no doubt that to stand out from the crowd, to be “something” in the world – you have to be extra “special”. According to current media reports – substance abuse in Vancouver BC, Canada makes it something special – perhaps the worst drug city in the world.
Vancouver is said to be home to the world’s worst and highest concentration of dedicated illicit drug users. With high levels of drug abuse, and many injecting users, rates of HIV infection in Vancouver, BC, are said to be the highest in the developed world.
Vancouver BC in Canada, only ranks third on the list of the world’s worst dressed cities. However, the dedicated druggies of Vancouver BC are aware of this lapse – are looking at possible strategies to improve the ranking.
Meanwhile, Vancouver continues to be renowned for having the worst ever hockey riots, such as occurred last year, after losing the Stanley Cup. Vancouver that has the very worst kind of wet weather, also has on its hands the worst community crisis that involves young children in need of protection – the intended placement of wet houses, home to the worst alcoholics, near to neighborhood schools.
No one is sure what all the fuss is about – most kid’s in the schools are used to substance abuse – Vancouver produces some of the worst cases of FAS and meth babies. Many children in Vancouver attend raves and run the risk of using tainted MDMA ecstasy drug.
The drug problem and related harm in the City of Vancouver is so bad that it has opened a place called Insite where the local authorities encourage the worst of the injecting drug population to come inside and shoot up, under medical supervision. Exemptions from legal prosecution have had to be obtained for staff to allow this public health service to continue.
Insite might be saving drug addict’s lives – saving them from overdose and infection – however, the Insite safe injection program is not drug recovery focused.
Alcoholics who drink illicit alcohol are soon to be able to enrol into free alcohol lounges - and get their choice of alcohol beverage for up to twelve hours a day – to ensure that they get quality alcohol – completely free of charge.
It has been said that such people will otherwise drink such things as mouthwash, antifreeze and hairspray to get an intoxicant “high” – perhaps it is time people pushed to such extremes got wheeled into an addiction recovery center that can put an end to their addiction, rather than treat them to what must be an alcoholic’s idea of heaven.
Vancouver has the worst drug gangs, is the worst city for organised crime. The port city of Vancouver exports meth drug and marijuana out of Vancouver, across the US border and around the world – as far afield as Asia, and Australia according to research by WHO.
Vancouver is the worst city in the world for the smoking of marijuana openly on the street, with the worst record for pedestrians being knocked down injured or killed.
Some local drug users have banded together to form a sort of drug users guild – who promote drug use and intend to put programs for safe injecting into kindergartens by next year. Out of Vancouver, the Vancouver Sun reports on the level of public funding that is provided to this drug using group – entitled the “Worst Drug Story Ever”.
Vancouver has the worst homeless population, tthat is associated with drug use and people with mental health problems and or disabilities. Typically Vancouver tries to clean up it’s streets, of the destitute and homeless for events such as the 2010 Winter Olympics.
The worst of Vancouver’s drug problems seem to be located in down town eastside (DTES) Vancouver, that currently has the status of being the worst postal code in Canada, for drug use and crime.
The proud drug history of Vancouver BC, that started with the opium trade many years ago tends to make for “harm reduction, in preference to drug addiction recovery as prevailing public policy.
Concerns have been raised from time to time by police, by local neighborhood groups about drug use in Vancouver, British Columbia. It seems highly unlikely that they will be able to “tarnish” Van’s reputation for being the worst drug city ever, in the forseeable future.
In implementing the Four Pillars policy that informs and supports traditional strategies against drug use in Vancouver, three pillars would appear to have fallen by the wayside – making harm reduction the treatment of choice by Vancouver authorities – a reactive, and ineffectual treatment method if you want drug use eradication, to create a “drug free” Vancouver.
RCMP officer Chuck Doucette speaks out against harm reduction – Vancouver BC, with the worst drug problem in Canada – also has the most harm reduction programs.
As Vancouver’s drug woes continue, people who want to get a clean break, and overcome drug use completely are welcome to call Narconon Vancouver - 24/7 to get the help that they need.
