Infantile trauma, therapeutic impasses and recovery(∗).

Infantile trauma, therapeutic impasses and recovery(∗). Am J Psychoanal. 2013 Dec;73(4):353-69 Authors: Eekhoff JK Abstract Throughout his writings Ferenczi examines the role of the mother-infant relationship in healthy development as well as the difficulties that occur when that relationship is problematic. This paper using Ferenczi and Bion as theoretical background explores the clinical development of impasse in the treatment of hard to reach patients. These patients present special difficulty for analysis because they are not self reflective although they can be addicted to "processing," which is in lieu of emotional connection. Impasse occurs when the analyst does not detect the mimicry involved in processing. The paper offers the idea of recovery, rather than repair, in that such patients have "gone missing" in infancy. Recovery of lost potential can be found in relationship with the analyst and with significant others. PMID: 24309685 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Rupp M, Mouhri ZS, Williams C, Jean-Claude BJ Abstract Disordered expression of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) has been associated with induction of DNA repair genes (e.g. XRCC1, ERCC1) and resistance to radiation and genotoxic drugs. However, our previous work showed that EGFR inhibition did not affect O6-methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT)-mediated resistance. In order to block uncoupled events associated with EGFR and MGMT, we designed MR30, a single molecule termed "combi-molecule" that contains a quinazoline arm targeted to EGFR and an O6-benzylguanine (O6-BG) moiety to b...

Know your triggers A major part of a successful recovery process is knowing what your triggers are. During the holidays, it can be a time that they present themselves more often than not. It can also be time when new triggers can arise that you didn’t realize you had before. It’s important to sit down and make a list of all the triggers that you think may pop up, and come up with a plan for each of them. This will give you better confidence for handling the situation when it pops up, and you will be able to move past it successfully with your newly-honed coping skills. Common holiday triggers Traveling Pressur...

How Addiction Takes a Toll on Your Nutrition Drug and alcohol abuse can take a major toll on your body. The recovery process is gradual, and nutrition is one of the major issues that often get overlooked, yet need attention.

Some of the effects of having an improper diet can also be: Paranoia Fatigue Depression Impaired memory There is a belief that in recovery you can indulge in sweets and junk food.

CONCLUSION:  Cardiac surgeons increasingly encounter patients with active endocarditis who suffer from IVDU addiction. Drug addiction increases the risk for recurrent endocarditis and requires an effective management plan. Multidisciplinary endocarditis care teams may play a pivotal role in improving outcomes by better addressing addiction treatment. PMID: 30296813 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

What is the Cliffside Malibu approach? Cliffside Malibu has a evidence-based, well thought out three-fold approach to addiction treatment that creates the foundation for lasting recovery that is different from AA. When all three are used together, the outcomes are more effective than any individual part on its own. Those three approaches are: Intensive one-on-one psychotherapy using the Stages of Change model. Complement intensive therapy with carefully chosen, evidence-based holistic treatments. We employ the first two tools together to create changes in the brain consistent with the ways neuroscience research suggests...

What is holistic therapy? Holistic therapy is defined as non-medicinal recovery methods. At Cliffside, we use holistic therapy to complement traditional treatment practices. Holistic therapy aims to bring the mind, body and spirit into alignment. It focuses on the patient’s overall well-being while also treating physical symptoms of addiction and withdrawal. They can be very beneficial to addiction therapy because they can be calming, healing outlets to use in place of old behaviors. They support the constant growth of each patient – mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Holistic therapy aids in he...

What is Residential Rehab? Rehabilitation in a residential setting is referred to as Residential Rehab. In residential rehab, patients reside in a facility more reminiscent of a home for the length of their treatment. Treatments can vary anywhere in length from 30, 60 to 90 days or more. (Duration of stay can be shorter or long depending on the type of addiction, as well as co-occurring dependency on other addictions or coinciding mental health disorders).
Duration of stay is wholly dependent on how well the Client is doing during their stay in rehabilitation. Our treatment of co-occurring mental health disorders are als...

Our nation’s police are on the front lines of witnessing the consequences of substance abuse. Arresting a socialite who is high on prescription painkillers for shoplifting, or sweeping up a tented community of homeless heroin addicts off a sidewalk — to fending off the superhuman strength of a meth addict’s rage is all part of a day on the streets for lawmen. The frequency of slapping handcuffs on substance abusers during the commission of a crime has become a daily, often times hourly occurrence in most of our cities. According to the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP), more than h...

We presently forget 98% of everything we experience. That will go away in favor of perfect, controllable, configurable memory. Skills and knowledge will become commodities that can be purchased and installed. We will be able to feel exactly as we wish to feel at any given time. How we perceive the world will be mutable and subject to choice. How we think, the very fundamental basis of the mind, will also be mutable and subject to choice. We will merge with our machines, as Kurzweil puts it. The boundary between mind and computing device, between the individual and his or her tools, will blur. Over the course of the ...
