The first stage of using Prescription for Health to treat alcoholics and addicts is relaxation. The relaxation stage is implemented by using my therapeutic relaxation music to help an addict or alcoholic begin to experience a very deep state of relaxation. For 30 minutes a day the client listens to the therapeutic relaxation music and relaxes. This process is repeated two to three times a week to start.
Eventually a brief guided introduction is added to the experience of the therapeutic relaxation music. The addition of the guided introduction is to help the client go even deeper into relaxation and to prepare him or her for the hypnotic suggestions that would follow in the program. The use of the therapeutic relaxation music and guided introduction would continue during the rest of the relaxation stage.
The therapeutic relaxation music that I have created is specially developed to help a person relax deeply. Each recording uses two component to help a person experience a very deep state of relaxation. The first is the structure of the music itself. The second is the use of binaural audio tones. When these two elements are combined the experience is extremely relaxing and therapeutic.
The value of helping an addict or alcoholic to relax is that it will lower his or her stress level. When a client’s stress level is lowered he or she is more likely to do the work necessary to change or transform their lives. The relaxation experience produced by the therapeutic relaxation music can be utilized by the addict and alcoholic throughout treatment and even when they are discharged and have to deal with life on life’s terms, another important tool to have in their recovery plan.
Prescription for Health is a new treatment program that I have developed for helping addicts and alcoholics to stay clean and sober. Prescription for Health is a special program that uses music, therapeutic relaxation and meditation music, to help addicts and alcoholics to first reduce their stress. Once a person’s stress level is lowered that individual will be much more open and willing to learn how to stay clean and sober by following suggestions.
Prescription for Health also helps the addict and alcoholic to improve their self esteem. By using therapeutic relaxation music and specially selected positive affirmations addicts and alcoholics will begin to change their sense of self from one that is fundamentally negative to one that is very positive. Once a person’s self image starts to improve that individual will start to live life differently. Instead of a living a life of destruction and not caring about themselves or others, the recovering addict and alcoholic will begin to believe in himself and will want to have a positive, happy life, one free from addiction to drugs and alcohol.
In addition to helping the addict and alcoholic learn how to reduce stress and improve his or her self esteem, Prescription for Health will also help the addict and alcoholic to start to let go of the past, create a healthy future that will bring happiness and peace and also help the individual to maintain the progress that he or she has created for themselves with Prescription for Health.
Prescription for Health is now being used exclusively with the addicts and alcoholics that are being treated for drug and alcohol addiction at the Cornerstone Recovery Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
