EXECUTIVE RECOVERY COACHING
The majority of drug-users are the so-called ‘high-functioning’ addicts, usually professionals working in every field from medicine to mining. They maintain normal work and social lives and their drug use is for performance enhancing outcomes. The dysfunctional stereotype of disenfranchised, out-of-control or criminal youth on the streets, is the minority.
High functioning addicts know who they are, have goals, and don’t use drugs to get off their face or to ‘escape reality’ but to make reality more real. They use drugs in a controlled manner ensuring that they can still eat and sleep, which means they remain functional.
If this is you, enhancing performance, productivity or managerial abilities is a valid goal but drugs are not a reliable method for delivering this. Ongoing use will eventually impact on your functionality and you will cross over to dysfunctional territory, in which your actions have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing, as well as on family, friends or career.
The outdated recovery system
If you seek help though, you’re going to be faced with an outdated recovery system which focuses on disease, powerlessness, shame and guilt. You’ll find yourself wasting valuable time talking in circles about what went wrong, and trying to identify underlying problems, unhappy childhood events and so on. Or you’ll be in a rehab (which probably has an 80% failure rate) with a bunch of dysfunctional users, whose objective was to be out of control. You’ll then be heading home to daily meetings admitting your powerlessness and disease.
This is totally inapplicable if your drug use is connected with getting things right. Reverse affirmations of powerlessness serve no purpose for professional drug users. You wouldn’t use negative affirmations in your job, and you wouldn’t deliberately introduce outdated systems into your business, you’d look for updated solutions and systems. This is what I provide. Instead of accepting an outdated model based on negative emotionality – shame, guilt or judgment – to try and change behaviors, I focus on alternative and sustainable means of delivering peak performance states again without drugs.
The updated executive recovery model
I’ve been in this field for 30 years and I have developed a recovery system (based on traditional Chinese medicine) that targets physical recovery from multiple angles, and creates fast results. This automatically helps restore emotional balance, clarity and productivity. As a recovery coach, I take clients through this process with programs customized for individual situations.
My recovery coaching program enables you to either hit the floor running after quitting, or will take you through a process of phasing out drug use while phasing in new sources of energy with the minimum interruption to your life. I monitor your health, answer your questions on symptoms that arise, advise on interactions with family members who may have been affected by your drug use, assist you to cut through emotionality and quickly resolve lethargy, confusion or other standard post-addiction symptoms, so that you can focus on your life.
Recovery is a highly complex field and requires expert input because emotionality is so interconnected with the physical symptoms. You might, for example, be experiencing the following:
Difficulty sleeping, restless sleep, exhaustion, depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, dizziness, blurred vision, hypertension, breathlessness, irregular heart beat, dry mouth & dental problems, headaches, muscle stiffness, sexual dysfunction, frequent colds or flu, difficulty concentrating, sensitivity to light and sound, paranoia, hallucinations and confusion.
These symptoms are the logical physical outcomes of excessive stimulant use but they can all (including the emotional and mood imbalances) be quickly corrected with high-powered nutritional supplementation programs, cognitive embodiment strategies (therapeutic exercise), a specific structured recovery lifestyle, acupuncture and remedial massage, Chinese herbal formulas, and lifestyle changes.
