Urban Drug Rehab is the home of leading-edge lifestyle-medicine based rehab programs and products developed by Jost Sauer, an ex-addict, and now an internationally recognized addiction expert and author.
Jost is a lifestyle medicine pioneer and addiction is a lifestyle. To quit successfully you need to replace that with a powerful medicinal lifestyle that delivers everything drugs or alcohol can. Jost drew upon 30 years of therapeutic experience to develop lifestyle medicine for drug recovery.
The program is used by rehabs around the world. It treats individuals. It breaks addiction cycles, makes new habits, builds the body, clarifies the mind, replaces the substance with a sustainable option and reconnects people to purpose.
There is no time wasted on guilt, shame or group work. Clients leave detoxed, drug and alcohol free, re-energised, empowered and armed with the insights, skills-sets and techniques to handle cravings, avoid relapse, repair relationships and have a happy and fulfilled life without substances.
About the people
About the Jost Sauer System
Most rehabs focus on changing your behaviour, this doesn’t work. If it did no one would ever relapse. Jost’s system doesn’t focus on changing your behaviour but on building your chi.
For example if you drop an ecstasy pill, you don’t deliberately decide to behave differently, it is generated from within. This is down to chi. So the program treatments create the same effects. Focusing on changing behaviour is an external approach. This approach is internal. This is why it works.
New set points
Once you experience a peak state or a peak performance state via drugs (or alcohol) your body-mind adjusts accordingly and immediately creates new set points. Jost understands that this is why people relapse, so the program works with matching and recreating those set points.
This is the only program in the world that does this, and it gets results. The chi experiences embed in the body-mind, along with techniques for building inner power to automatically counter the urge to relapse before it even rises to the conscious mind. You will be able to trust yourself in any situation regardless of the triggers.
New drug users
Most addicts these days begin as ‘functional’ users. You might use ice (meth) in the morning before work to get on top of workloads, amplify energy and be able to multi-task.
You might have become dependant on marijuana to manage stress, counter insomnia or just be able to sit back.
Jost has treated many people who have ended up needing to drink excessive amounts of alcohol every night just to be able to unwind, to reset from the day or to have a few moments finally feeling truly themselves.
Most drug use is about amplifying reality, not escaping it, or it’s about lifestyle management. So there’s no point wasting time on outdated guilt-tripping. Instead get a replacement plan in place for whatever it was you wanted or needed from drugs or alcohol – otherwise you will always feel something is missing and this is relapse territory.
Successful recovery means you quit drugs or alcohol for good, have no cravings and don’t live in a state of anxiety over relapsing, or losing the plot emotionally. The Jost Sauer System delivers this.
Addiction is not a disease, it is a cluster of interlinked imbalances which can be corrected.
Jost’s system is based on decades of research into how nutritional supplements, a healthy diet, therapeutic exercise, weight-lifting, martial arts, meditation, tai-chi, and yoga, make you feel good. From the perspective of Chinese medicine, it all comes down to ‘chi’, to building chi and making chi move.
Recreational drugs create symptoms because they hijack your body’s internal energy (chi) resources to deliver the highs. But these resources are limited. This is why you keep needing more drugs but get less results. It is also why you get symptoms. The solution is simple: put more chi or energy in than you use up.
The secret to our rehab success is chi, and we offer the world’s only chi-based program – from food, treatment, motivational counseling, specific physical and emotional movement and supplements, and we have discovered that if we add chi from a great environment, the effects are even more profound. We search the earth for special places for rehab, we use fabulous premises that we hire, so there is no negative rehab vibe, no signage, no stigma, no judgment. That’s the old way, we are the future.
