Finding Hope is a sobriety
video created by a board certified psychotherapist and licensed
professional counselor. The DVD is broken into three
to be used as drug and alcohol addiction recovery tools by individuals,
families, clinics, treatment
programs and the like. It helps those suffering from chemical dependency
understand themselves better, learn how to cope with and overcome
addiction, and explore the various methods of substance abuse
treatment from the comfort and safety of their own homes. Watching
another's drug and alcohol counseling, one shares an emotionally
powerful and rewarding journey from dependency to recovery, where
the obstacle of fear is removed, and "help" and
hope are found!
The three sections include; Part One: Finding Ourselves,
a Solution, and Part Three: Finding Help.
One: Finding Ourselves
In part one of the video answers are explored to the following
- How do I know if I have an alcohol or drug
- What behaviors might I exhibit that suggest my
life is being disrupted by alcohol or drugs?
- Is it possible to change my behavior?
- What is denial, and how might I be using it without even
knowing I am?
- How big does the problem have to become before I do something
- When do most people seek addiction help?
Two: Finding a Solution
Part two deals with understanding what addiction “help” really
This is a term we use so liberally, but to a person suffering from
chemical dependency, “help” is just a word.
This section explains the skills that must be
confront life on its own terms. Through discussion and testimony,
it demonstrates the value of skill development. This part answers
the following questions:
- What is the difference between an abuser of alcohol
or drugs and an addict or alcoholic?
- Exactly what is addiction?
- The concept of chemical dependency as a disease.
- The Better Solution – finding ways to change behavior
and depend self rather than alcohol or drugs.
Three: Finding Help
Part three delves into all the various levels of addiction rehab
and treatment programs. For any of us, going into a new setting for
a new job, new school, new church, hospital, doctor's
office. Imagine the fear feltl when talking about going to
a counselor's office, a residential alcohol or drug treatment center,
treatment program or worst of all - a Twelve Step meeting! With
the help of many friends and a cast of willing actors and actresses,
we have demonstrated how each of these methods works. Fear is
and the value of the experience becomes evident. Anxiety is replaced
with healthy anticipation.
This sobriety video segment explains the role and purpose
of each addiction treatment program and why they have great value
in helping to
- a life
FREE of alcohol or drugs - one that is Happy and Joyous!
