Background: Addict Assist is as much a project as it is a product. It was inspired by the Heantos Project, which goes back to the 1990's, attempting to bring to light a very old herbal tradition for minimizing the effects of opiate withdrawal. Out of this project came a series of reports, showing the safety and efficacy of the approach. Most notable among the early research:
Transitioning to "Tapering":Anyone who has worked in the field of addiction knows that irrespective of any nutritional or even pharmaceutical aids, the path to complete freedom from addiction is an arduous one. Even in a clinical environment, such as the one used in Vietnam where Heantos is employed professionally, medical doctors are available to assist addicts in a process where unforeseeable side effects may manifest. Moreover, someone who reaches the intended goal of getting "clean" may relapse at a later date.
The Road from Heantos to Addict Assist
Through trial-and-error, a number of developers created alternative formulas that were originally inspired by Heantos with the goal of getting addicts to "taper off" of their narcotic of choice. It was also discovered that getting someone to gradually diminish dosage was far easier and less arduous medically than attempting to get someone to go "cold turkey." Out of these findings, Addict Assist was created, a formula that -- depending on how you access its active ingredients -- is about a third "Heantos related."
The directions are easy : A person takes a total of ten grams a day, two grams in the morning, two grams four hours later and another two four hours later for a total of six grams during the day. At bedtime one takes four grams for the total of ten grams during a twenty four hour period.
For those using short acting opioids such as all the pain management medications, as well as heroin, they will find the effect is a significant lowering of tolerance to their opiate of choice. With little focus on the process of tapering from the amount of opiate being taken, people find themselves decreasing use spontaneously. They awake in the morning and find themselves showering and heading off to their job before they realize that for the first time in a couple years or much longer they didn't need to use first thing upon awakening. I call this composition a harm reduction tool because people have the opportunity to be in control of their own use. They aren't beholden to a methadone/suboxone authority. They realize they are not beholden to their opiate of choice nearly as much as they were before.
It takes between one to three weeks to taper from any amount of opioid to one half to one eighth the amount. However, the reduction begins almost immediately and organically. At a point in some people's process there are some who will want to jump off their use of their opiate of choice completely and given the significant decrease in use in the amount of opiate, it is much more manageable to let it go. At this point people double up on the amount of remedy taken per day for three or four days which helps ameliorate symptoms of withdrawal by 60% to 70% which is not a walk in the park but a doable experience.
I'm very clear as a result of sharing the remedy with many people that it significantly reduces tolerance to short acting opioids. I have also received indications that it helps people sleep, reduces anxiety and depression, increases appetite, and helps eliminates craving for cocaine, methamphetamine and alcohol. It's a mood elevator which apparently creates a seratonin uptake and balances dophamine levels.
Supplying a Key Missing Element:Despite the fact that Addict Assist can be and is self-administered, unlike Heantos, psychological counseling is still an important element in the process -- particularly if one attempts to make the leap from tapering off to complete cessation of use. Included with the initial purchase of Addict Assist is one free hour of consultation and assessment by Robert Higgins, LMFT -- (See CV).
A special line has been established to accommodate counseling sessions: (305) 851-2305. Subsequent consultations to guide the process are available through Alpha Omega Labs at a competitive rate of $35 per hour. See "The importance of counseling in a sustainable substance abuse recovery program."
Prior to enrolling in the Addict Assist program, participants will be asked to complete an Intake Assessment Form so that they are able to get the most of their consultations. (Note: this is a "fillable PDF," so download this file and then open in a PDF program so as not to discard this feature.)
"Making It Easier Than Ever to Give Up This Horrible Addiction"
How a Secret Rural Herbal Formula in Vietnam Was Made Public
The study of ethnobotany illustrates in numerous ways that necessity really is the "mother of invention." By way of example, here in the Amazon, near our home, there are innumerable remedies for parasites -- more than anywhere else on earth, simply because the number, variety, and threat of parasites is a bigger potential problem here than anywhere else.
And so it is that out of necessity the forerunners to Addict Assist were developed in Vietnam as a result of an unusual climactic condition that affects heroin production. As the story is told, opium production can be spotty in between harvests. This presents a grave hardship for those who are addicted to opium. In a culture honoring the elderly, younger people would have to reduce or eliminate their use, favoring supply for what remains for the elders.
Initially, herbalists in rural Vietnam created formulas designed to aid the withdrawal symptoms and opium cravings that this supply problem created. Over time, improvements in these native formulas have been made to make the product more efficacious, working in less time, with less unrelated side effects (i.e. sedative). Addict Assist takes into account the latest advances in perfecting what for centuries has been largely a native home remedy. In clinical trials we've been moderating in the States, one associate has remarked, "This makes it easier than ever to taper down one's personal use and even give up this horrible addiction problem . . ."
Why Now?As herbalists and naturopaths, we decided to become involved in this specialized area of detoxification because it has become the need of our time. Between 26.4 and 36 million people abuse opioids worldwide. In the U.S. alone, heroin use has reached epidemic levels, prompting politicans from all sides to call for more aggressive treatment measures. Many of our associates in the U.S. have remarked to us in recent years how the problem has been affecting the social fabric and health of their communities.
Even here in Ecuador, there are areas along the coast where opiate and cocaine use is so rampant, as is the crime that usually follows, that residents know to stay clear.
Making the Transition EasierThe symptoms of withdrawal that initial tests with Addict Assist have shown to emeliorate, if not eliminate, include:
