An intervention, while sometimes painful or embarrassing, is sometimes a critical process necessary for the drug addict/alcoholic who deny they have a problem.

San Juan Capistrano, CA (PRWEB) April 19, 2009 -- Just recently receiving a National Certification, Professional Christian Drug Interventionist Bobby Nicholl, along with a group of friends, family or co-workers helps motivate a drug addict/alcoholic toward recovery. An intervention, while sometimes painful or embarrassing is sometimes a critical process necessary for the drug addict/alcoholic who denies they have a problem.


"The Miracle of Recovery can be yours"
The Miracle of Recovery can be yours
Celebrate A New Life Drug Intervention encompasses Ten Steps:

Christian Drug Intervention Step #1: Don't Rescue the Addict/Alcoholic
Friends and family members can attempt to protect an addict from the consequences of his behavior by making excuses about his addiction or getting him out of trouble. This behavior must stop! Once the addict experiences the effects of his behavior, he may become more motivated to stop using drugs.

Christian Drug Intervention Step #2: Don't Become an Enabler
Family members should be careful not to reward the addict by paying his bills, bailing him out of jail, letting him stay for free or ignoring his behavior.

Christian Drug Intervention Step #3: Find the Right Time
If possible, select a time to talk with the addict when he is sober, when the entire intervention party is in a calm frame of mind and when you can speak privately.

Christian Drug Intervention Step #4: Find Strength in Numbers
Enlist the support of family members, relatives and friends in confronting the addict as a group, selecting one person to be the initial spokesperson. Remember, the idea is to make it safe for him to come clean and seek help.

Christian Drug Intervention Step #5: Be Honest
Tell the addict that you are concerned about his drug addiction and want to be supportive for him while he gets help. Support your concern with examples of the ways in which his drug/alcohol use has caused problems for you, including any recent incidents.

Christian Drug Intervention Step #6: State the Consequences
Tell the addict that until he gets help, you will leave him to the consequences of his behavior and will no longer bail him out. Make it clear that you are not trying to punish the addict, but protect yourself from the harmful effects of his addiction.

Christian Drug Intervention Step #7: Listen
During your Christian drug addiction intervention, the addict might ask questions regarding potential treatment. Listen! These questions are a sign that he is reaching for help.

Drug Intervention Step #8: Be Prepared
If the addict is ready to take action, don't wait. Once he's agrees to go into Christian rehab, work immediately to get him admitted into rehab. Prior to the intervention, pack him a bag, make travel arrangements and ensure he has acceptance into the Celebrate A New Life program.

Christian Drug Intervention Step #9: Don't Give Up
If the addict refuses help, don't give up. Be supportive and don't enable or allow his behavior. Listen whenever you can and be ready to help the addict into Celebrate A New Life when he is ready.

Christian Drug Intervention Step #10:
Celebrate A New Life effectively treats alcohol, drug and substance abuse beyond the initial cleansing of the system, addressing the behavioral and thinking patterns that directly contribute to the individual's disease. If drug addiction or alcoholism is a problem someone you love, we encourage you to give Celebrate A New Life a call today to learn more about treatment and Christian intervention options.

Christian Alcohol Rehab "Alcohol" The Stain Remover

In Drug Rehab and Chritian Alcohol Rehab our custodian once showed us how great alcohol is to remove stains from almost any fabric. At Celebrate A New Life we found that to be true, which just goes to show the amazing veratility of alcohol.

Alcohol will also remove a persons very dignity, their spouse and children when used in sufficient quanity. Alcohol will remove the furniture from the home, rugs from the floor, food from the table, lining from the stomach, vision from the eyes, and judgement from the mind. Alcohol can and will remove good reputations, good jobs, good friends, freedom, sanity, and happiness from a child's heart. Alcohol will also remove ones ability to adjust and live with his fellow man. Alcohol will even remove life itself.

More lives have been lost and more families destroyed by alcohol than all the wars of history. Isn't it about time we told ourselves the truth about alcohol. how many more lives and families will be destroyed before we decide to wake-up! As far as removers go, alcohol has absolutely no equel.

If you or someone you love has a alcohol problem, please get help. help is available, help can't wait! Call Us Today! 24 Hour Counselors are waiting! Call Now! Toll Free (800) 708-3173
We will see you online,

Celebrate A New Life





Today, I Celebrate A New Life. You have to try to understand. My life or what consisted of a life; was more of a hole in life. Emptiness, despair, disgust, abandonment, and shame were my daily companions. My best friends names were, ailination and isolation. The dark hole inside my soul sunk into the depth of agony nobody should experiance. When I found or should I say; alcohol and narcotics found me. I felt for the first time in my life, ease and some sort of comfort. This all happened as a 12-year old boy. For the next 35 years anasteheshia was my main objective in life. The "Big Problem" was, the more drugs and alcohol I put into the hole, the bigger the hole beacame. Today I Celebrate A New Life.
A "Whole New Life." From a hole in life to a whole new life. This miracle of recovery can be yours too. Please get help!

Hurts and Habits Increase During Hard Economic Times

Celebrate Recovery founder John Baker believes, Hurts and Habits Increase During Hard Economic Times

1. When the economy is struggling, people in your church and community feel hopeless and defeated as they are losing their jobs, their homes or struggling just to pay their monthly bills.

2. History has proven that during times like these the number of people turning to addictions and compulsion greatly increase.

3 In the United States alone, there ar already 18 million alcoholics, 4 million drug addicts, 16 million sex addicts, and 4 million addicted to food. The list goes on!

We know the one and lasting answer for those feeling hopeless is to turn to Jesus Christ! How does your church reach out to those struggling? Over 12,000 churches have found a way to help individuals with any kind of hurt, hang-up, or habit. They started a Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered Recovery program, based on God's word.

In His Steps,
John Baker

Today's News God Help Us

ATLANTA, April 2 (UPI) -- Binge drinking is a common behavior among U.S. adults particularly among white men ages 18-34 making $50,000 or more annually, federal health officials said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Mortality and Morbidity Weekly Report said effective population-based interventions to prevent excessive and binge drinking like maintaining and enforcing the age 21 minimum legal drinking age, increasing alcohol excise taxes, decreasing alcohol outlet density and increasing screening and counseling for alcohol misuse should be widely implemented.

For the study binge drinking was defined as having five or more drinks on an occasion.

The study, which analyzed data from 62,684 respondents to the 2004 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System from 14 states, reported that binge drinkers said they had an average of four binge episodes per month, and consumed an average of eight drinks per binge ranging from 9.8 drinks per binge among those ages 18-24 to 6.4 drinks per binge for those age 65 and older.

Binge drinkers who were black or American Indian/Inuit binge drank more frequently -- 4.9 times per month -- than other populations.

"In general, binge drinkers engaged in this behavior frequently and at drinking levels that exceeded the dangerous five-drink binge threshold by an average of about 60 percent across all socio-demographic groups," the study said.

Two more ways to Ways to "Lighten Up"

*Stop dragging your own soap opera with you everywhere you go!

*Stop apologizing for who you are! Be creative ... think of ways to handle your routine differently and to deal with people differently. Dare to be outrageous ... outrageous in your own style. Maybe it's not your style to be flamboyant ... maybe you need to just start saying "No" when you want to and stop saying "Yes" when you don't want to!

Christian in Drug Rehab & Recovery Lighten Up!

Working in a Christian Drug Rehab, I to often see somber over sober. Sometimes we just need to Lighten Up! "Lightening up" doesn't necessarily mean humor and jokes, and it never means not taking responsiblity for our actions. It simply means recognizing and letting go of the burdens we think we have. When we "lighten up" we heighten our aliveness, our productivity, our communication with others, our self-fulfillment. "Lightening up" is an attitude, it's a way of responding to life! Today I'm going to "Lighten Up" just a little.
See ya on the next blog,
Bobby Nicholl
