Bruce Rose Director at Alcohol Recovery Scotland

Bruce Rose has worked for many years in the rehab industry, managing drug and alcohol treatment centers. A few years ago, Bruce was researching the topic of medication-assisted alcohol treatment and came across information on The Sinclair Method, or TSM. TSM is simply medication-assisted treatment for alcohol use disorder using the medication, naltrexone.

Bruce decided to dedicate his work to supporting clients interested in using this method of addiction treatment that relies on pharmacological extinction. In these past few years, he has seen incredible success with his clients, watching them recover quickly and without the usual issues of severe alcohol withdrawal and alcohol deprivation syndrome.

In this interview with Bruce Rose, we discuss his approach to helping clients with their prescribed alcohol treatment program. We also talk about the future of medical treatment for alcohol and the possible integration of TSM with traditional residential rehab programs.

Change is Inevitable, Growth is Optional

Change is an inevitable part of life, but we have the
choice to grow or stay put. Change can also be something we feel
ambivalent about and that isn’t necessarily a negative thing. It can
evoke joy, anxiety, a sense of loss and a million other things all
wrapped up in one decision.
We look at the beauty of living life facing change in a way that has the
ability to make us better people and live a richer quality of life.

Bringing Goodness in Light of Grief: Lessons from Cole

Melanie Coppola, president of the Live Like Cole Foundation, joins me to look at bringing goodness in light of grief. Melanie’s family created the Live Like Cole Foundation after Nicholas “Cole” lost his life to a drunk driver in Vero Beach, Florida.
Melanie, Cole’s sister, shares her grief journey and how the memory of her brother is strengthened through the decision to create an organization focused on passions that represent what her brother stood for: kindness, community and giving back.
Grief is life long and impacts every person differently. We take a different approach in this week’s episode connecting passion to make a difference in our own community with carrying on the memory of a loved one. It’s an inspiring episode that will encourage and inspire many during this Holiday Season.

Lloyd Sederer, M.D.: A Leader In Public Health Discusses The Future Of Addiction Treatment

Lloyd Sederer, M.D., is currently an adjunct professor at the Columbia University School of Public Health. He has won many top awards in the field of psychiatry, and he has served as a leader in the field of public health in New York for the past two decades. In the 90s, Dr. Sederer was the chief psychiatrist at McLean hospital, the psychiatric teaching hospital for Harvard Medical School. He has published thirteen books, and he has published hundreds of articles in top medical journals and newspapers.

What is the future of the treatment of addiction? According to Dr. Lloyd Sederer, the path to saving more lives from addiction going forward will involve providing better access to the tools that we already have. We already have harm reduction strategies, including the opioid overdose rescue drug, naloxone. And, we have effective medication-assisted treatments for opioid use disorder and alcohol use disorder.

Our understanding of the functioning of the brain is more advanced than ever before in history. A wide variety of therapies can be applied to target various regions of the brain that are affected by addiction. In addition to existing medications and therapies, there are also new medical treatments on the horizon, including the drug, psilocybin.

With psilocybin, an existing, ancient form of medical therapy is being brought up to date with current medical science. Safe, synthetic forms of the drug have been studied in major research centers with promising results.

Just as important as therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and contingency management, and medications, such as methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone, are the forming of relationships to promote abstinence and recovery.

Dr. Sederer believes that, to be successful in helping people to recover from active addiction, we must meet them where they are and understand why they are using drugs or alcohol. Drugs serve a purpose for people who use them and it is important to start from there and work towards helping them find healthy replacements for drugs when they are ready.

In our talk, Dr. Sederer and I discuss two of his recent books. We talk about “Ink-Stained for Life” and “The Addiction Solution.” Both books are fascinating and I highly recommend them to my audience.

“Ink-Stained for Life” is a collection of fourteen stories and essays relating Dr. Sederer’s early life as a child in The Bronx to his adult life and the present, in 2020. The book demonstrates the improbable nature of the path from living as a child, on the streets of New York City, to being a leader in public health in the State of New York.

The book shares Dr. Sederer’s philosophies on life with discussions about topics such as intelligence and genius, wealth and struggling in the middle class, Judaism and being Jewish without living as an observant Jew, living in New York City, being the leader of a world-class psychiatric hospital, working in the world of public health in New York City and New York State, addiction treatment and much more.
