The 4th Australian and New Zealand Addiction Conference is on next month at the Mantra on View Hotel, Gold Coast over the 15th – 17th May.
Dr Tracie O’Keefe, Director at the Australian Health & Education Centre joins us next month to discuss ‘Four Cases of Instant Cessation of Drug Addiction with the Clinical Hypnotherapy Stop Drugs & Alcohol 6 Step Program’.
“One of the major social and health problems across the world is drugs and alcohol abuse. It is endemic to many societies. This has been the case for thousands of years with the use of cocaine in Ancient Egypt, alcohol in ancient Rome the use of opium in China in the 19th century and a new plague of cheap recreational street drugs now flooding many countries.
Hypnosis in its different forms has also been used for thousands of years in the healing of the body, mind, changing behaviours and human experience. This is shown in the examination of ancient Egyptian healing temples, Greek Asclepion temples, the salons of Mesmer in Paris, the use of hypnosis in American Pentecostal churches and the modern-day practice of clinical hypnotherapy and medical hypnosis. Hypnotherapy is used with tens of thousands of patients in the field of substance abuse cessation.
This paper examines four cases of long-term drug addiction where all patients ceased their addiction after one two-hour session of the Clinical Hypnotherapy Stop Drugs & Alcohol 6 Step Program, with the patients not abusing substances again.
The first case was a user of methamphetamine for many years, who has not used drugs or alcohol again. The second case is a user of daily marijuana imbibed through a pipe for 34 years who has not used drugs again. The third and fourth cases are two brother who used marijuana three or four times a day for five years and were caught up in a folie a deux (madness of two) of co-joint addiction, who after their first sessions, have not used drugs or alcohol again.
All four cases instantly ceased their addiction after the first session of the Clinical Hypnotherapy Stop Drugs & Alcohol 6 Step Program created by the author and attended a follow-up session.
