Beating The Odds of ALS - The Treatment Center Testimonial

A year and a half ago, Ernest was diagnosed with ALS, a spinal muscular atrophy disease. As the disease progressed, he had to walk with a walker. A serious fall left him with a broken hip and he became wheelchair bound. With the desire to slow down the progression of the disease, his wife, Petra began taking him to The Treatment Center to receive ALS Treatment, utilizing holistic services.

Ernest suffered from frequent muscle spasms and triggers of severe pain. To help ease his discomfort, he began receiving holistic therapy three days a week as form of ALS treatment. As a result of integrative treatments such as acupuncture, laser therapy, massage, and chiropractic care, Ernest began to see a huge transformation.

Ernest was much more at peace and relaxed after receiving the treatments. Eventually, he began to feel better and gain more independence. Today, Ernest courageously fights his ALS with a smile.

To find out how receiving holistic treatments have healed his pain and transformed his life, watch the video below:

Abuse of Prescription Drugs Biggest Drug-Related Threat

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

Abuse of prescription drugs is the biggest drug-related threat to the health and safety of Floridians. The 2009 Florida Medical Examiner’s Report revealed that overdoses from prescription drugs kill seven Floridians each day. This is five times greater than deaths from all illegal drugs combined.

The explosion of pain clinics in Florida has contributed to the problem. Many of these are “pill mills” where drugs are traded for money. Florida has become popular for drug-seekers from other states to come and get a supply of prescription drugs.

According to the 2008 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 70 percent of people who abuse prescription drugs get their supply from their friends and family. Other patients receive their prescription drugs from one physician. Many others “doctor shop” to receive their prescriptions for pain medication. Stolen, forged or counterfeit prescriptions are a common way addicts get their supply of prescription drugs.

In January, Florida convened a Statewide Prescription Drug Task Force made up of several state agencies and charged them with finding solutions to the problem. In conjunction with federal agencies, the Task Force has accelerated their attack on the criminal activity that often surround prescription drug use.

A law, SB 2272, was passed that granted greater authority for health officials to regulate the pain clinics in Florida. The Prescription Drug Monitoring Program will begin in December. It will allow physicians to look at their patient’s prescription history. As a result, potential “doctor shoppers” will be discouraged.

The Treatment Center has been awarded
the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval.
