Who doesn’t want more joy in their life? The fact is that low joy levels are the best indicator that someone is at high risk for an addictive lifestyle. The higher your level of joy is, the less vulnerable you are to getting caught up in the addictive cycle. Building the capacity for increased joy and the skills needed to live a joyful life are both possible. Join us as Ed Khouri brings hope for healing from, and staying free from addiction in his third and last episode on the Healing Addiction series with Beyond Abuse Radio.
Suzanne Marcus Fletcher interviews Lisa Brandy Founder and Executive Director of Brandi's Wish Foundation, a Florida 501c3 created in loving memory of her 18 year old daughter, Brandi Shea Meshad, who died of accidental drug poisoning in March 2011. In Fletcher's on-going coverage of the scourge of addiction, she and her guest will be discussing Lisa Brandy's newly produced film (Directed by KT Curran), called "The Holding Cell." The Holding Cell is a 35 minute film that’s creating a big buzz while debuting at film festivals across the country, which is based on true stories about real teenagers and the many factors that go into a teens' decision to begin abusing drugs and alcohol. The film shows the progression of drug abuse and the devastating impact that addiction has on teen lives. Join us for the conversation at Noon PST Thursday November 6th, at 1:00 PM.
Did you know... North American governments
Spend over 51 BILLION dollars a year on the War on Drugs?
Yet these same governments do very little to treat addiction and the "poverty of the spirit" that engenders this addiction.
Dr. Bruce K. Alexander is a Canadian psychologist who believes that society is drowning in addictions, to alchohol, drug use and a thousand other habits. He maintains the reason for this is a growing disconnect as people around are torn from the close ties to family, culture, and traditional spirituality. Alexendar says this rift and lack of social integration has destroyed what used to constitute the normal fabric of societal life.
For many, addiction serves as a substitute for the connectedness for which they long and which provides context and meaning for their lives.
Alexander believes because societal determinants are so much more powerful that individual ones, that addiction is much more a social problem than an individual disorder. This is why he feels that the War on Drugs is so wrong-headed.
Alexander's book, The Globalization of Addiction: A Study in Poverty of the Spirit presents a new look at the nature of addiction, how society should view addicts, and more effective treatments for addiction.
Bruce Alexander is a psychologist and Professor Emeritus at Simon Fraser University, where he has worked since 1970. His primary research interest has been the psychology of addiction. He is best known in the UK for the "Rat Park" experiments, which helped to demonstrate the falsity of the outworn belief that simple exposure to narcotic drugs can cause addiction.
Relationships are the stuff of our deepest pain and joy. They can leave gaping holes that cause great vulnerability to addiction, and they are also a large part of healing addictions. Ed Khouri shares a fascinating piece of research that links trauma through early attachment problems to dopamine receptor density that affects the ability to regulate pain, pleasure, and emotions. That sets the bar for the level of relational joy in people’s lives. Propensity for addiction increases radically when relational joy is low. What can be done to increase our joy bonds? Lots! Join Beyond Abuse Radio as we explore the connection between addiction and attachment and catch the hope for healing.

Carol the Coach will be interviewing Kate Morgan who has personal experience with being a partner of a sex addict. Sex addiction invaded Kate Morgan's life almost two decades ago when her husband's secret life was exposed after ten years of marriage. His alarming disclosure instantly threw her world into a 20-month-long storm of chaos, heartbreak, disbelief, and surprisingly--a calming peace she had never experienced. Within just a few years, she had transformed that heartache into a book, Coming Through With Grace, (published in 2003) and later began her Coaching business.
As a Coach, Kate supports and encourages men and women around the world as they navigate the confusing, sad, and often-scary world of sex addiction. Her diverse, 24-year Nursing background has laid the groundwork for understanding addiction as an illness.
Sexual Addiction is a disorder that requires strategies to assist you in maintaining recovery. This show is to help you access the books, the experts and the people who are managing recovery with The 12 Step Program and Patrick Carnes Recovery Task Model that reinforces the steps you need to take to manage your recovery and take your life through the journey so that you not only conquer the "Addict" but develop into the person you were meant to be!

( Rescheduled from 9-25-14) Addiction changes the brain. Getting free from addiction is a challenging process because it requires breaking deeply ingrained patterns of the brain and creating new ways of thinking, acting, and relating. Ed Khouri, addiction specialist with The Life Model, will share the first steps to breaking addiction behavior, coming to terms with the cost of addiction, how addictions hijack the attachment center of the brain, and skills needed to increase the capacity of our brains to process the trauma that is often the underlying cause of addiction. Ed’s work in addiction recovery led him to understand that BEEPS (Behaviors, Events, Experiences and Substances that help regulate emotions, reduce pain or increase pleasure) take over the attachment system in an attempt to replace relationships as the source of joy. By dealing with the force behind all addictions, Ed Khouri and the Thriving program allow people with many different forms of addiction or codependency to recover together. Ed now works training people globally to help others become free of addiction and live in joyful community.

The LADY JAZ LIVE Show on KLJN 107.7 - CALL (347) 237-5342
On this episode, Lady Jaz welcomes her returning guest, The Relationship Mentor, Dr. Charles Dean as they discuss the issue of couples dealing with addictions of all kinds. Whether drugs, alcohol, gambling or ography, it can bring an unbearable weight to the relationship, which in turn, causes and unstable foundation in the home.
Addiction means always having to say you are sorry and finally, when being sorry is no longer good enough for others who have been repeatedly hurt by the addiction, addiction often means being sorry all alone.
Addiction is often said to be a disease of denial but it is also a disease of regret. When the addictive process has lasted long enough and penetrated deeply enough into the life and mind of the addict, the empty space left by the losses caused by progressive, destructive addiction is filled up with regrets, if-onlys and could-have-beens. In early addiction the addict tends to live in the future; in middle and late addiction he begins to dwell more and more in the past. And it is usually an unhappy past.
The first casualty of addiction, like that of war, is the truth. At first the addict merely denies the truth to himself. But as the addiction, like a malignant tumor, slowly and progressively expands and invades more and more of the healthy tissue of his life and mind and world, the addict begins to deny the truth to others as well as to himself. He becomes a practiced and profligate liar in all matters related to the defense and preservation of his addiction, even though prior to the onset of his addictive illness, and often still in areas as yet untouched by the addiction, he may be scrupulously honest.
