Vitamin therapy and dry sauna
« on: July 07, 2013, 16:27 »
My daughter is 26 and has battled alcoholism and bulimia for 6 years.  She spent 6 weeks last year at Rogers Memorial in Wisconsin but relapsed soon after arriving home. She was just hospitalized in critical care due to 5.0 hemoglobin, billirubin of 20,and  enlarged spleen.  The whites of her eyes have been yellow since January.  She is in desperate need of long term inpatient care as the doctor told her she is at the crossroads of life and death.  Yesterday I called a drug addiction hotline and "Jeff" was so ready to find the best treatment for her.  After being put on hold for a few minutes he connected me with "Dan" from Fresh Starts in California.  This was the first time someone at a rehab center spent so much time asking questions and giving all the right answers including the 6 month guarantee.  I was given references to call which I did. Dr. Sosin (the head medical doctor) called to speak to me regarding my daughter's condition and told me about how the therapy used at their location can actually repair liver damage.  The cost, $35,000, covered the entire time she needed to stay.  While this amount is beyond what I have available, it was the most affordable for long term treatment.  They told me everything my heart wanted to hear.  However, I could not find any treatment programs in my area that recommended Fresh Start let alone heard of them.  Now, thanks to my brother's research, I have been led to this site where I am reading nightmares about what has occurred at the California location. I will be seeing a liver specialist tomorrow and will ask about the dry sauna and vitamin therapy approach.  For those who have found a different treatment center how did you decide upon that location.  Time is not on her side. Though I do not want to rush into making a choice, I must find a reputable long term treatment center for her.  She does not have insurance and unfortunately, money is an issue.  The 30 day programs are not long enough to treat her dual diagnosis.  I would truly appreciate any insight someone could provide.

Hi eebers.  Welcome to the forum, although I wish it were under more pleasant circumstances for you. 

My daughter is 26 and has battled alcoholism and bulimia for 6 years.  She spent 6 weeks last year at Rogers Memorial in Wisconsin but relapsed soon after arriving home. She was just hospitalized in critical care due to 5.0 hemoglobin, billirubin of 20,and  enlarged spleen.  The whites of her eyes have been yellow since January.  She is in desperate need of long term inpatient care as the doctor told her she is at the crossroads of life and death.  Yesterday I called a drug addiction hotline and "Jeff" was so ready to find the best treatment for her.  After being put on hold for a few minutes he connected me with "Dan" from Fresh Starts in California.  This was the first time someone at a rehab center spent so much time asking questions and giving all the right answers including the 6 month guarantee.  I was given references to call which I did. Dr. Sosin (the head medical doctor) called to speak to me regarding my daughter's condition and told me about how the therapy used at their location can actually repair liver damage.  The cost, $35,000, covered the entire time she needed to stay.  While this amount is beyond what I have available, it was the most affordable for long term treatment.  They told me everything my heart wanted to hear.  However, I could not find any treatment programs in my area that recommended Fresh Start let alone heard of them.  Now, thanks to my brother's research, I have been led to this site where I am reading nightmares about what has occurred at the California location.

Considering your daughter's condition, I can say with certainty that Narconon is not the place for her.  I've given you and your brother PM capabilities (which is usually granted after 5 posts) so you can speak with Cigul (one of our members who has been to Narconon in Warner Springs).  I believe he/she will be including both of you in the PM to you, so just hit the "Reply to all" if you'd like to get a 3-way private conversation going.  To access your PM box, the link on the menu above that says "My Messages" will get you there.

I believe that Cigul may also be able to help you with how to avoid finding an irreputable place for your daughter, but I doubt he/she will have any specific suggestions for one to choose, because of differences in locations.  Perhaps the liver specialist will have a good suggestion. 

There may be some other responses forthcoming, so please check back in this thread.

Hi eebers, glad you joined the forum!

I just sent your brother information on program in Michigan which seems to meet your daughter's needs. Just don't know how much it costs. I will continue to keep looking around at surrounding states, as well.
