Explore Yourself In Rehab

Rehab is usually seen as something negative that means a person has committed a serious mistake in his or her life that resulted to addiction. An addiction that has most probably started to damage the life of the addict and the people around him or her resulting to a decision to start recovery and healing as soon as he or she realizes the impact of the actions done.

The people who decide to go through a recovery process (that can afford a more expensive facility) often choose a luxury rehab. This is because being in this luxurious rehab center has extra perks such as surroundings that are located in scenic and peaceful surroundings full of amenities that can cater to physical and mental needs for recovery, gourmet meals, all day service and support, just to name a few.

The belief before focuses on the negativity of addiction with having the need for rehab. However, recent developments had Passages, a luxury rehab center in Malibu, pave the way to change the impression of rehabs. Instead of judging, they started to see addiction not as a disease but rather an effect of an underlying problem. In Passages, with their new and effective treatment approach, focuses on knowing the root cause of the problem and resolving it so as to avoid relapses in the future. They allow the patients to explore and know themselves more. The peaceful and relaxing environment of this luxury rehab center promotes peace and relaxation that can greatly help in the healing process. Gourmet meals and excellent service provides comfort to the patients thus they do not have to stress themselves more. Excellent services and patient one on one sessions with professionals is also the main factor in ensuring that they get to know and understand themselves as well as others around them.

This luxury rehab also recognizes the uniqueness of each individual so the program for each patient varies as per the need. It does not follow the standard steps for recovery but rather a specialized one catering to the requirements set by the severity and complexity of the patient’s case.

A holistic treatment focusing on self-exploration and understanding, this is what Passages aims for and based on the results, it is quite effective.  Don’t focus on the negative and judge, focus on what really is and resolve it.

If you are planning to do detoxing once the New Year starts in order to kick start a healthier way of living, you don’t have to wait that long. You can start your detox now because the process is not only meant to help you lose the pounds you gained over the holidays but it is also a great medium if you want to cleanse your body.

There are different types of detoxes that you can try. It all depends on what you need and your body require.

According to the owner of the nutrition store called Fit Republic, Austin Evans, there are many different types of detox. There are people who are doing this process in order to become more independent while getting rid of substances which they are addicted to such as nicotine, sugar and caffeine. There are those that do detox in order to help clean their colon. If you are planning to start a healthier life then detox is the best way to start as it is good in conditioning your body.

Evans shared that clients visit his tore in order to get help on how to create a healthier habit. The first thing most of them are required to do is to remove their dependency on sugar.

He revealed that if your body has a craving of sugar every time then it will be impossible for you to eliminate it from your diet. Detox alone or done with a combination of healthy diet can help in eliminating the substances in which the body is dependent to.

According to Evans, sugar is the reason why many people are gaining weight and it adds up the carbs and calorie intake of a person. Individuals are also given the false feeling of having a high level of energy. When time comes that you have to let go of the sugar, your body will experience sugar crashes. You will be able to gradually remove it from your body which will level your energy and lessen the carb in the process. If you cannot get rid of your dependency to a certain substance, enroll in a health retreat in Thailand.


HART: Heroin Addiction Has No Boundaries

A group of residents and community leaders came together in an effort to open people’s eyes especially those that haven’t come to terms regarding the widespread heroin addiction.


HART – Heroin: It’s Here


The Health Awareness and Recovery Together (HART) group, together with the Hilliard Optimist Club and support from other community members, are set to do a town hall meeting on October 4 from 7 – 9 pm at Bradley High School.


The meeting “Heroin: It’s Here” will include a question and answer session with a panel of great speakers in hopes to communicate that heroin does not have boundaries.


Heroin: no boundaries, no discrimination


Karen Norval, one of the founders of HART, mentioned that she got motivated to assemble the town hall due to her experience with the community’s refusal to believe that heroin is a problem in Hilliard.


She kept hearing from people that heroin is not in Hilliard. For her, people are not understanding that heroin doesn’t have borders, and it is closer to homes than people think.


Joshua Cohill, a Hilliard detective, said that he has seen heroin abuse regardless of the socioeconomic status in Hilliard. He added that heroin doesn’t discriminate.


Aside from the harmful effects to its users, family members also suffer a huge emotional toll from seeing their loved ones suffering or from discovering overdose.


HART’s hope to inform


The panel speakers will include those having direct and indirect experiences from heroin abuse including those addicted and their family members as well as police officers who experienced the primary and secondary effects from the abuse.


Carla Karn is one of the panel members. Her 24 year old daughter has been clean after having experienced heroin while studying high school in Marysville. They later moved in Hilliard.


She said that they only knew of their daughter’s abuse when she was arrested. Only then that Karn began adding up her daughter’s activities and behaviors. She wants other parents to know what they experienced.


HART members hope that insights can be provided by their panel members. And although, there are countless clinics or hospitals available nearby or in farther locations like luxury rehab medical centers in Malibu, knowledge to prevent abuse is better than dealing with the problem later on.


Costs Of Healthcare Tripled Compared To 2001

According to a new analysis that was published this week, an average family in the United States can avail health care but to a high cost amounting to more than $25,000. This is the highest recorded for this year despite the fact that the increase in health cost has slowed down to the slowest level possible.

If a family with four members is to be covered with an employer-sponsored which is a type of preferred provider plan then the total costs in their health care would be $25,826. This amount is higher compared to last year by exactly $1,155. The same family could be provided with the same health care plan at one third the amount in the year 2001 – this is the very first time that an analysis by the Milliman Medical Index was conducted.

Milliman, the actuarial services firm, also indicated in their annual index that it is the 11th year in a row that the dollar continued to increase in the health care costs of a typical family and is now more than $1,110.

The index was able to pinpoint one of the most significant factors that cause the increase in cost and it is the rapid growth in things that are included in the health plans as well as the insurance. One good example is the prescription drugs that already cover the 17 per cent of the total costs that is allotted for the health care and in one year it averages at around $4,270.

When compared to the costs of the prescription drugs that are covered in 2001, the amount has grown into four times the original costs. One must also keep in mind that the index was not able to take into consideration that effect of the rebates, if any, from the pharmaceutical companies. These rebates could be a reason for reduction in total drug costs since it is already gaining more popularity. The increasing costs in health care are one of the major reasons why a health insurance is important even if you are in the United States, Thailand or anywhere in the world.


TV Cookery Next Step For A Curry Entrepreneur

Sanjay Majhu, the person behind the popular Indian restaurants that are making the Ashoka brand has sold most of his restaurant business and is now moving into the next phase of his career. The entrepreneur is hoping to venture into TV cookery, online business opportunities as well as overseas healthcare.

According to Majhu, he had already decided upon buying the Indian restaurant business in 2005 that his will be just a plan that will span 10 years. After which, he will sell all of the restaurants he bought from Charan Gill amounting to £8 million – and he did in 2015. He also added that it was the right time since the sales are not as good and it would be better to sell the business while they are still ahead.

Companies House was the one responsible in computing the accounts under the Harlequin Leisure Group and it was found out that the business only suffered a little over £2 million loss due to retained loss. Mr. Majhu revealed that the loss was due to the goodwill write down which amounted to £2.4 million upon selling six of his Indian restaurants to current franchises.

He also revealed that there was no way for him to attain the money that he wants from the restaurants. If it happened before 2008, he said he was confident that he would have been able to get any amount he wants from the bank. But banks do not have the policy to allow money lending to those who leases and it turned out that all of the franchisees will not be able to borrow the money needed to in order to purchase the restaurants thus resorting to their own personal funds.

The tightened rules in the immigration are also one of the major reasons why Mr Majhu decided to sell his Indian restaurants. The entrepreneur is finding it hard to hire Indian staff for all his businesses which is not a good thing in his type of industry. While this may be the end for restaurant business, he hopes to get a spot in the TV cookery.
