Chris Rene – X-Factor 2011 Clean and sober for 70 days

Every now and again we see some really heart warming addiction treatment stories. We all have our stories. While this is a feel good story that connects way deeper than just addiction alone, it connects with life. Here is a young man, Chris Rene who has recently beat his alcohol and drug addiction and is a trash hauler for a living. Chris auditions for X-Factor and scores big time. Obviously he is a talented singer, song writer and composer. But what I think will capture most people is his authenticity. Everything about him is real. I think Simon nailed it when he said I think we need you. Simon, what the world needs right now is the truth. Chris Rene is 100% real, this is why he should go far.

Alcohol Addiction – Addiction Treatment Marketing Technique

Addiction Treatment Marketing Technique Using Twitter

If you want more traffic to your Twitter ID and to your web site this is a handy little addiction treatment marketing technique I use all the time. Make sure you insert your keyphrase into the post if it is not already in there. You will see that if you do a search on Twitter you will see Alcohol Addiction in the search results posts. What this will do is make your post more visible to the users on Twitter.

When more people who are searching on Alcohol Addiction they are more likely to find your post, when this happens it also creates an opportunity for the user to click on one of the two links in your Twitter profile and go back to your site. While this might seem like minutia if you do it often with your core body of keyphrases you use in PPC and SEO chances are they will click back to your addiction treatment center website, then of course you have the possibility of getting a phone call from someone whom you can help.

12 Step Program – Where did the Name 12 Step Program Originate?

This entry was posted in 12 Step Program and tagged , on by .

I couldn’t sleep last night and I’m not 100% sure of this but I stumbled across this Astro – Theology video on Youtube and this guy Jordan Maxwell said something interesting at about the 8:00 minute mark. He said that during the Egyptian times when the Sun came up in the morning it was called Horus, Horus walked across the sky in “12 Steps” and this is where the alcoholics got the “12 Step Program” from.

He goes on the say that the kids get the “12 Step Program” grades 1-12. He also said that this is where we get “hours” from by changing the name Horus to hours and this is where we get the 12 hours from. He says that the number 12 is “everywhere” in the bible and he is right. For example, how about a few of these 12.

Jesus had chosen 12 disciples/apostles plus him = 13 (13 that’s an interesting number too!)
12 Jurors bring the truth to light
12 houses/signs of the zodiac
12 tribes of Israel
12 months of the Year
12 Days of Christmas

and so on.

And we have the 12 Step Program to Recovery (According to Wikipedia)

These are the original Twelve Steps as published by Alcoholics Anonymous

We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.
Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

In some cases, where other twelve-step groups have adapted the AA steps as guiding principles, they have been altered to emphasize principles important to those particular fellowships, and to remove gender-biased language.[11][12][13]

What do you think? Is this where the name 12 Step Program originated?

Whether you agree or disagree this is one approach that seems to work in some other areas of society, make ’em pay if they want to play.  What do you think?  Do you know which University or College has the best Alcohol and Drug Treatment programs in the nation?

The University of Wisconsin at Madison will require students cited for underage drinking to attend counseling sessions and pay a fine. Ana Kasparian and Jayar Jackson discuss on TYT University.
