Alcohol and Drug Use Evaluations
Alcohol and Drug Use Evaluations consist of four one hour sessions. Issues covered during evaluation consist of the compensatory factors to the: Disinhibition and desensitization effects, principles of reinforcement and high risk factors.
Addiction is a mindset. Think of your mindset as a pair of interchangeable shaded lens. Depending upon the shade of your lens, that is how you see your world. The same is true of the addiction mindset, depending of your addiction, that is how you see the world. Nothing could be more practical, however there is nothing practical about addicted to something outside of yourself. In fact it defies the human condition which is a wanting condition never satisfied, wanting of competence and independence and for the addicted, competence is experienced as incompetence and independence as dependence. From this perspective of addiction, life then becomes competition for substance, for those who lack substance abuse substances for substance, hence a cycle of addictedness.
Through our Intervention & Relapse Prevention Program, you will discover what the human condition is, how that condition necessitates the human experience, and how your human experience stands as platform to your addictedness. In short, you will discover the power of control you have chosen to surrender to your behaviors and their substances.
The mind-set of addiction is a perspective of substancelessness
For you, there is no substance in your life. In the void of your substancelessness, each morning of waking is a loathing of deep, dark, worthlessness weighted only by self-disgust as you reach to the drug that closed your eyes the night before. In your cycle of what others would call “self-abuse,” you look to your substances to gain substance in your social self as you sit in the deep shit of your personal self. Mentally you masturbate your self-loathing and disgust as you sit in the shit called a life. You have no feelings for others, for you care less about yourself. You are anchored to your own self-defeat as your mind resonates: “It is, I can’t, I will never….” You think what you know and what you know you do!
The opportunity of emptiness
To rationally and functionally understand the mindset of addiction and the influence it has on behavior, you would have had to survive the experience of Wu Chi, or the flow from emptiness to fullness. Indeed, our Founder, Peter Stone, a master of Wu Chi has embraced his life experience of substancelessness as an opportunity. He matched the emptiness of that opportunity to the fullness he sought through his later graduate and post-graduate research, study, and practice. With over twenty thousand hours of clinical practice in cycles of addiction and behaviors of substance abuse and anger-based aggression, he developed the Intervention & Relapse Prevention Program through his clients and their life spans.
MyDiscover’s Intervention & Relapse Program will help you cultivate a perspective – an orientation of change that self-motivates the opportunity to learn how to learn from your own emptiness as you thirst for fullness. Indeed, by our very nature as humans, we all thirst for fullness as our condition is a wanting condition never satisfied. In our insatiable want, we all strive to maximize competence and independence. Through the irrationality and dysfunction of addiction, opportunity is maximized, however it is the inverse of our human nature, for the mindset of addiction yields incompetence and dependence.
Through the Intervention & Relapse Prevention Program you will discover for the first time in your life the empowerment that your mental health is a skill of form and technique. You provide the mental health and we provide the form and technique through which intervention becomes your skill to relapse prevention.
