Michael Jackson agreed to have a Sober Companion right before his death. Was it with dr. sober companion?

The bombshell that NBC Today show missed, was that dr. sober companion was hired to be the sober companion for Michael Jackson London tour

Because dr. sober companion respects the request for privacy for his clients, he would not confirm or deny the report to NBC today show reporters, when he was interviewed.

NBC Today show missed the boat with their segment with Dr. Rob Tencer, by instead following a drug addict as he went undercover to a medical doctors office, and deleted all but one sentence of Dr. Rob Tencer's interview. "They told me they had their agenda, and that the work of a sober companion was unimportant to them. They only wanted to know about drug use of celebrities." said Dr. Rob Tencer of dr. sober companion.

dr. sober companion dr. rob tencer dc, bs
was he hired by Jackson family?

Michael Jackson agreed to hire a sober companion before his death, to accompany him on his London tour, reported health care examiner Sheila Guilloton of the examiner on July 20, 2009.

While the examiner mentioned rehab and other forms of replacement therapies, it seemed to veer away from the usefulness of a sober companion.

While most families that are part of the entourages are enabling the drug addict, they are all in denial. Dr. Sober Companion has mentioned this many times before and last discussed denial while mentioning the high functioning drug addict and the high functioning alcoholic.

Dr. Rob Tencer wrote about Ms. Sarah Allen Benton's book: Understanding the High-Functioning Alcoholic: Professional Views and Personal Insights which covers denial very clearly as a main reason for avoiding the help that the addicts really need, to stay alive.

Dr. Sober Companion was featured 7/10/2009 on the #1 morning show in the USA, NBC The Today Show, in a special story called: "Undercover: Prescription meds in Hollywood". The video is available online from NBC entitled: "Undercover: getting drugs in Hollywood". The description of the segment on the NBC site is "Video: TODAY examines how easy it is for people with cash to get drugs."

Shamed reality star
medical Dr. Drew Pinsky
of Celebrity Rehab

They also interviewed and allowed the one medical doctor that should not be considered a national expert, Dr. Drew Pinsky air time, because of his well noted failures in favor of good reality TV, and the fatality problems at his rehab facility where he is the director.

The real Michael Jackson bombshell story was that Michael Jackson was in complete denial. To the end he remained adamant that he did not have a drug problem. Sources report that although he continued to deny any drug abuse, he did agree to honor the wishes of his family that he bring a “sober companion” with him for the London tour.

What could a sober companion do to keep michael jackson alive that other methods could not?

This was and is the true bombshell that while it is to late to hire a dr. sober companion for Michael Jackson, it is not to late to hire a dr. sober companion for your son or daughter. Are you in denial?

michael jackson bombshell discovery is a warning to pharmaceutical companies

many drugs are not safe and effective

michael jackson bombshell warning to pharmaceutical companies - you can no longer hide behind federal laws of "safe and effective".

In march 2009, it was discovered that the FDA has changed its position on state tort law, which may mean that pharmaceutical companies can now be sued without being able to hide behind federal law.

While the blame game continues, and nobody except dr. sober companion points finger at pharmaceutical companies, it has been discovered that the pharmaceutical companies can no longer hide behind FDA warning labels, which made them teflon coated until Wyeth v. Levine appeared in the supreme court of the united states.

Michael Jackson, Heath ledger, Anna Nicole Smith and millions of non famous people may now point a dead finger at pharmaceutical companies because we are not talking about street drugs like heroine and cocaine, but instead their pharmaceutical counterparts, which are as easily available as ordering a pizza and commonly available at your nearest pharmacy.

While Levine also went after the doctors for malpractice, it did not stop with them.
3Respondent sued her physician, physician’s assistant, and hospital for malpractice. After the parties settled that suit for an undisclosed sum, respondent’s physician sent her a letter in which he admitted “responsibility” for her injury and expressed his “profoun[d] regre[t]” and “remors[e]” for his actions. 1 Tr. 178–179 (Mar. 8, 2004) (testimonyof Dr. John Matthew); see also App. 102–103 (testimony of physician’sassistant Jessica Fisch) (noting that her “sense of grief” was so “great” that she “would have gladly cut off [her own] arm” and given it torespondent). Thereafter, both the physician and the physician’s assistant agreed to testify on respondent’s behalf in her suit against Wyeth.

The significance of the supreme court ruling is that the blame game can now include pharmaceutical companies and not just the doctors who administered the drugs. I think the only reason people never thought of this before was that pharmaceutical companies were largely untouchables.

Wyeth (a pharmaceutical company), filed a motion for summary judgment, arguing that Levine’s failure-to-warn claims were pre-empted by federal law.

Just because a drug is FDA approved, and has a federal law approved warning label, this does not mean the drug won't kill you.

If a drug kills enough people, it is taken off the market, however if it is because of overdose, it is blamed on the person taking it. If a drug causes distinct negative side effects, those are added to the micro sized small print. Is this adequate to save lives? Dr. sober companion says this is not adequate to save lives.

The following is exerted from Wyeth v. Levine

Petitioner Wyeth manufactures the antinausea drug Phenergan. After a clinician injected respondent Levine with Phenergan by the “IV-push” method, whereby a drug is injected directly into a patient’s vein, the drug entered Levine’s artery, she developed gangrene, and doctors amputated her forearm. Levine brought a state-law damages action, alleging, inter alia, that Wyeth had failed to provide an ade-quate warning about the significant risks of administering Phener-gan by the IV-push method. The Vermont jury determined that Le-vine’s injury would not have occurred if Phenergan’s label includedan adequate warning, and it awarded damages for her pain and suf-fering, substantial medical expenses, and loss of her livelihood as aprofessional musician. Declining to overturn the verdict, the trial court rejected Wyeth’s argument that Levine’s failure-to-warn claimswere pre-empted by federal law because Phenergan’s labeling hadbeen approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Vermont Supreme Court affirmed.

Wyeth’s argument that requiring it to comply with a state-law duty to provide a stronger warning would interfere with Congress’ purpose of entrusting an expert agency with drug labeling decisions is meritless because it relies on an untenable interpretation of con-gressional intent and an overbroad view of an agency’s power to pre-empt state law. The history of the FDCA shows that Congress didnot intend to pre-empt state-law failure-to-warn actions. In advanc-ing the argument that the FDA must be presumed to have estab-lished a specific labeling standard that leaves no room for different state-law judgments, Wyeth relies not on any statement by Congress but on the preamble to a 2006 FDA regulation declaring that state-law failure-to-warn claims threaten the FDA’s statutorily prescribed role.

The warnings on Phenergan’s label had been deemed sufficient by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) when it approved Wyeth’s new drug application in 1955 and when it later approved changes inthe drug’s labeling. The question we must decide is whether the FDA’s approvals provide Wyeth with a com-plete defense to Levine’s tort claims. We conclude that they do not.


I don't know if you understand the significance of this supreme court ruling, so let me try to explain in more detail.

Wyeth lawyers made it clear the blame game has changed when it argued that recognition of Levine’s state tort action creates an unacceptable “obstacle to the accomplishment and execution of the full purposes and objectives of Congress,” Hines v. Davidowitz, 312 U. S. 52, 67 (1941), because it substitutes a lay jury’s decision about drug labeling for the expert judgment of the FDA.

Do you now begin to see the layers of government protection that was afforded the pharmaceutical companies? Do you begin to see lobbying efforts, and the billions of dollars that went into paying off congress for their votes. The government protection afforded them is now unravelling before our eyes.

Indeed, prior to 2007, the FDA lacked the authority toorder manufacturers to revise their labels. See 121 Stat. 924–926. When Congress granted the FDA this authority,it reaffirmed the manufacturer’s obligations and referred specifically to the CBE regulation, which both reflects the manufacturer’s ultimate responsibility for its label and provides a mechanism for adding safety information to the label prior to FDA approval. See id., at 925–926 (stating that a manufacturer retains the responsibility “to main-tain its label in accordance with existing requirements, including subpart B of part 201 and sections 314.70 and
601.12 of title 21, Code of Federal Regulations

We also learn from this case that the pharmaceutical companies try to blame the doctor as noted here: Nevertheless, the jury rejected Wyeth’s argument that the clinician’s conduct was an intervening cause that absolved it of liability. See App.234 (jury verdict), 252–254. In finding Wyeth negligent as well as strictly liable,

federal law and FDA labeling

In order to identify the “purpose of Congress,” it is ap-propriate to briefly review the history of federal regulation of drugs and drug labeling. In 1906, Congress enacted itsfirst significant public health law, the Federal Food andDrugs Act, ch. 3915, 34 Stat. 768. The Act, which prohib-ited the manufacture or interstate shipment of adulter-ated or misbranded drugs, supplemented the protection for consumers already provided by state regulation and common-law liability. In the 1930’s, Congress becameincreasingly concerned about unsafe drugs and fraudulent marketing, and it enacted the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FDCA), ch. 675, 52 Stat. 1040, as amended,21 U. S. C. §301 et seq. The Act’s most substantial innova-tion was its provision for premarket approval of new drugs. It required every manufacturer to submit a newdrug application, including reports of investigations and specimens of proposed labeling, to the FDA for review.Until its application became effective, a manufacturer was prohibited from distributing a drug. The FDA could reject an application if it determined that the drug was not safe for use as labeled, though if the agency failed to act, anapplication became effective 60 days after the filing. FDCA, §505(c), 52 Stat. 1052.
In 1962, Congress amended the FDCA and shifted the burden of proof from the FDA to the manufacturer. Before 1962, the agency had to prove harm to keep a drug out of the market, but the amendments required the manufac-turer to demonstrate that its drug was “safe for use under the conditions prescribed, recommended, or suggested in the proposed labeling” before it could distribute the drug. §§102(d), 104(b), 76 Stat. 781, 784. In addition, the amendments required the manufacturer to prove thedrug’s effectiveness by introducing “substantial evidencethat the drug will have the effect it purports or is repre-sented to have under the conditions of use prescribed,recommended, or suggested in the proposed labeling.” §102(d), id., at 781.
As it enlarged the FDA’s powers to “protect the public health” and “assure the safety, effectiveness, and reliabil-ity of drugs,” id., at 780, Congress took care to preserve state law. The 1962 amendments added a saving clause,indicating that a provision of state law would only be invalidated upon a “direct and positive conflict” with theFDCA. §202, id., at 793. Consistent with that provision,state common-law suits “continued unabated despite . . . FDA regulation.” Riegel v. Medtronic, Inc., 552 U. S. ___, ___ (2008) (slip op., at 8) (GINSBURG, J., dissenting); see ibid., n. 11 (collecting state cases). And when Congressenacted an express pre-emption provision for medicaldevices in 1976, see §521, 90 Stat. 574 (codified at 21
U. S. C. §360k(a)), it declined to enact such a provision for prescription drugs.
In 2007, after Levine’s injury and lawsuit, Congressagain amended the FDCA. 121 Stat. 823. For the first time, it granted the FDA statutory authority to require amanufacturer to change its drug label based on safety information that becomes available after a drug’s initial approval. §901(a), id., at 924–926. In doing so, however,Congress did not enact a provision in the Senate bill thatwould have required the FDA to preapprove all changes todrug labels. See S. 1082, 110th Cong., 1st Sess., §208, pp. 107–114 (2007) (as passed) (proposing new §506D).Instead, it adopted a rule of construction to make it clearthat manufacturers remain responsible for updating their labels. See 121 Stat. 925–926.

See De la Cuesta, 458 U. S., at
153. The FDA’s premarket approval of a new drug appli-cation includes the approval of the exact text in the pro-posed label. See 21 U. S. C. §355; 21 CFR §314.105(b) (2008). Generally speaking, a manufacturer may only change a drug label after the FDA approves a supplemen-tal application. There is, however, an FDA regulation that permits a manufacturer to make certain changes to its label before receiving the agency’s approval. Among otherthings, this “changes being effected” (CBE) regulation provides that if a manufacturer is changing a label to “add or strengthen a contraindication, warning, precaution, or adverse reaction” or to “add or strengthen an instructionabout dosage and administration that is intended to in-crease the safe use of the drug product,” it may make thelabeling change upon filing its supplemental application with the FDA; it need not wait for FDA approval. §§314.70(c)(6)(iii)(A), (C).

As the FDA ex-plained in its notice of the final rule, “‘newly acquired information’” is not limited to new data, but also encom-passes “new analyses of previously submitted data.” Id., at 49604. The rule accounts for the fact that risk informa-tion accumulates over time and that the same data maytake on a different meaning in light of subsequent devel-opments: “[I]f the sponsor submits adverse event informa-tion to FDA, and then later conducts a new analysis of data showing risks of a different type or of greater severityor frequency than did reports previously submitted toFDA, the sponsor meets the requirement for ‘newly ac-quired information.’” Id., at 49607; see also id., at 49606.

Wyeth suggests that the FDA, rather than the manufacturer, bears primary re-sponsibility for drug labeling. Yet through many amend-ments to the FDCA and to FDA regulations, it has re-mained a central premise of federal drug regulation that the manufacturer bears responsibility for the content of itslabel at all times. It is charged both with crafting anadequate label and with ensuring that its warnings re-main adequate as long as the drug is on the market.

why can't FDA adopt the same warning labels as required by tobacco industry?

But the trial court and the Vermont SupremeCourt found that the 1988 warning did not differ in any materialrespect from the FDA-approved warning. See ___ Vt. ___, ___, 944
A. 2d 179, 189 (2006) (“Simply stated, the proposed warning was different, but not stronger. It was also no longer or more prominent than the original warning . . .”); App. 248–250. Indeed, the United States concedes that the FDA did not regard the proposed warning as substantively different: “[I]t appears the FDA viewed the change as non-substantive and rejected it for formatting reasons.” Brief for United States as Amicus Curiae 25; see also ___ Vt., at ___, 944 A. 2d, at 189.

what does this mean as far as the blame game?

7Although the first version of the bill that became the FDCA would have provided a federal cause of action for damages for injured consum-ers, see H. R. 6110, 73d Cong., 1st Sess., §25 (1933) (as introduced), witnesses testified that such a right of action was unnecessary because common-law claims were already available under state law. See Hearings on S. 1944 before a Subcommittee of the Senate Committee on Commerce, 73d Cong., 2d Sess., 400 (1933) (statement of W. A. Hines); see id., at 403 (statement of J. A. Ladds) (“This act should not attempt to modify or restate the common law with respect to personalinjuries”). 8In 1997, Congress pre-empted certain state requirements concerningover-the-counter medications and cosmetics but expressly preservedproduct liability actions. See 21 U. S. C. §§379r(e), 379s(d) (“Nothing inthis section shall be construed to modify or otherwise affect any action or the liability of any person under the product liability law of anyState”).

additional notes:

during his closing argument, respondent’s attorney told the jury, “Thank God we don’t rely on the FDA to . . . make the safe[ty] decision.You will make the decision. . . . The FDA doesn’t make the decision, you do,” id., at 211–212.2

Alito commented: Federal law, however, does rely on the FDA to make safety determinations like the one it made here.
But turning a common-law tort suitinto a “frontal assault” on the FDA’s regulatory regime for drug labeling upsets the well-settled meaning of the Supremacy Clause and our conflict pre-emption jurisprudence. Brief for United States as Amicus Curiae 21.


more notes:

They try to solve that problem with helpful politicians doing by executive fiat at an agency what they could not do in Congress; for example, by placing a corporate immunity clause in the preamble of an FDA rule that says if a drug is FDA approved, you can't sue. Thus, drug companies ask the courts to imply that preemption exists even though it was not expressly legislated.

Next up is from the Center for Justice and Democracy, a consumer rights group dedicated to preserving the civil justice system. They issued a report today: THE BITTEREST PILL -- How Drug Companies Fail To Protect Women and How Lawsuits Save Their Lives. The report, according to the authors, "tells the story of the hyped marketing to women of a disproportionate number of unsafe drugs and devices resulting in countless deaths and injuries." As you may guess, they aren't too keen on immunity being granted to a company that was negligent, and whose negligence injured people. It's part of that whole personal responsibility thing that conservatives usually talk about, except when it comes to big business.

In piecing together the emails from the FOIAs, AAJ uncovered the cozy relationship between federal officials and the industries they regulate. For example, the pharmaceutical industry intensified its efforts to influence the FDA in the months leading up to the physician labeling rule's release on January 24, 2006. Much of the lobbying efforts were aimed at Sheldon Bradshaw, who had succeeded Daniel Troy as FDA chief counsel in April 2005.

AAJ obtained emails that list attendees of a meeting between Bradshaw and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) revealing the FDA chief counsel met with legal representatives from Pfizer, Wyeth, Eli Lilly, Berlex, Organon, Abbott Laboratories, Takeda, Sanofi-Aventis, Serono, AstraZeneca, Cephalon, Millenium, Eisai, Amgen, Astellas, GlaxoSmithKline, Bristol Myers Squibb, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, Merck, and 3M.

Less than six months after this meeting, the agency would release its final physician labeling rule with complete immunity preemption language in the preamble, a complete about-face from the language in the proposed rule that specifically said the agency did not intend to preempt state law with the rule.

"Big business lobbyists have been on a crusade to destroy state consumer protection laws, and further stack the deck against American consumers," said Weisbrod.

corrections in the michael jackson functioning drug addict story

Sarah Allen Benton, the author of "Understanding the High-Functioning Alcoholic: Professional Views and Personal Insights" wrote us with some corrections of an earlier post, which we agreed to correct on this blog.

Sarah Allen Benton describes high-functioning alcoholics as people who are able to maintain respectable, even high-profile lives. That balancing act continues until something dreadful happens that reveals the truth and forces the person to enter a treatment program or lose everything that means anything. (Including their life. Think michael jackson or heath ledger).

While Ms. Benton agreed that there are similarities between high functioning alcoholics and a high functioning drug addict, she never implied anything about michael jackson, his drug addiction, or symptoms of a functioning drug addict nor the way a drug addict reveals their addiction to their friends, family or the public, nor anything to do with michael jackson molestation charges.

Ms. Benton did say that the functioning alcoholic sometimes reveals their addiction or gets exposed for having made inappropriate sexual advances. (dr. sober companion drew a conclusion from this statement to try to connect the two together.)

Ms. Benton identifies herself as a recovering alcoholic with an addiction problem (not to drugs), while Dr. sober Companion is Dr. Rob Tencer DC, BS, whom never was a drug addict and never had problems with alcohol.

To our knowledge, Dr. Sober Companion is the only sober companion to have never been a drug addict or alcoholic, which also means he will never be an enabler to your son or daughter.

In retrospect, I was trying to hit people over the head with the similarities, and went a little to far to demonstrate the connections between high functioning alcoholics as described in "Understanding the High-Functioning Alcoholic: Professional Views and Personal Insights", and the Michael Jackson high functioning drug addiction. For that, I apologize.

This is a very emotional topic for me and my passion for speaking against enablers got the best of me. How could the michael jackson entourage of family, friends, doctors and staff not see the signs of drug addiction? That is why enablers must be completly removed from the lives of people you are trying to save.

michael jackson doctors like conrad murray must take fall for pharmaceutical companies to continue its drug addiction unfettered.

Michael Jackson's last doctor on record Dr. Conrad Murray
(unless you count the coroner Dr. Quincy)

When we last wrote about Michael Jackson's on call doctor, Dr. Conrad Murray, it looked as if he was off the hook because he was cooperating with the homicide investigation of Michael Jackson.

Everyone wants to know the following:

While there will be countless fake and real names found on the pill bottle prescriptions found at the homicide scene of michael jackson, the only real incriminating name is of doctors who supplied the pharmaceutical prescription drugs. This is a witch hunt of blame, where anyone of the entourage could be to blame as much as the doctors giving the prescriptions. (think howard k. stern)

Everyone wants to know which doctors names were uncovered in evidence during Michael Jackson child molestation supeonea of evidence on the premises of neverland ranch, which included syringes and pill bottles with prescription information on them which also included the doctor who prescribed them. Did Debbie Rowe say to much about the syringes and injections?

Dr. Sober Companion is Dr. Rob Tencer DC, BS. A licensed Doctor of Chiropractic who believes in abstinence of drugs from the perspective of a drug addict. You can not get abstinence from being around enablers, entourage, parents, friends. A good source to hang around is dr. sober companion.
The question I hope to answer:

Can someone please explain to the sober companion audience of this blog, why the michael jackson death is a wake up call that should put all blame (or most of it) on the pharmaceutical industry and government, and not on the doctor, and write it in simple english?

This can be answered in a simple answer. The pharmaceutical companies spend billions of dollars to bribe the government, that they are not to blame. So far it has been working!

If we were looking at a food chain we would start with phamaceutical industry at the top, then government, then doctor, then pharmacist, then you. Somewhere in there we should throw in massive marketing and lobbying campaign.

People injured by drugs are blocked from getting in justice by trial, because government blocks blame with FDA road blocks.

What does this all mean to the michael jackson homicide investigation and you?

If someone like Michael Jackson has a personality trait that is easily addicted to things like prescription pharmaceuticals (drug addiction), plastic surgery addiction, can you blame the doctor?

This addiction sounds very much like the argument against the tobacco industry and addictive qualities of nicotine. We know that the tobacco industry knew of the addiction and the death it caused and the eventual outcome of the battle that took at least twenty years to win.
The point is, stop pointing the finger at the doctor and go after the real criminal which is none other than the pharmaceutical industry.

Yes, a doctor can be negligent, but the risk of what they administer is in the small print.

(do you know what happened to the small print in tobacco?)
the small print became MUCH EASIER TO READ
Proper warning labels

Improper warning labels

The argument against pharmaceutical and government (FDA)

Lawsuits, industry advocates say, can expose drug makers to a conflicting hodgepodge of jury decisions in multiple state courts that often contradict the expert judgment of the FDA when it decides what warnings belong on a drug label. The FDA-approved label, they argue, should trump the findings of juries who lack the same expertise. Wyeth and its supporters want the high court to rule that the FDA's powers pre-empt state court lawsuits that claim stricter drug warnings were needed.

That logic is known as the pre-emption argument, which maintains that the federal government has the last word on drug labeling. And, therefore, government warnings override legal challenges after a drug has been approved. (Bernadette Tansey, San Francisco Chronicle)
Information obtained by Representative Henry Waxman (D., CA) show that neither FDA staffers nor FDA experts agree with the pre-emption position of the White House administration:
"We know that many currently approved drug labels are out of date and in many cases contain incorrect information," the committee report quoted top FDA official Dr. John Jenkins as saying in a 2003 internal policy memo.

What makes the whole thing especially outrageous is that the FDA now requires approval to change a warning label when new adverse event information becomes known to the manufacturer. In previous administrations the FDA actually encouraged drug makers to update their labels immediately.

A recent Supreme Court decision upheld federal pre-emption clauses in legislation for medical devices, but this language isn't in the same statutes concerning drugs. Nevertheless, Big Pharma and the white house administration argue it is "implied."

There is now a developing consensus, even amongst in the public health establishment that FDA is a broken agency. Thus to maintain that this hollow husk of a regulatory agency's warning labels is all we need to protect consumers is a very cruel joke.

Dr. Sober Companion is Dr. Rob Tencer DC, BS. A licensed Doctor of Chiropractic who believes in abstinence of drugs from the perspective of a drug addict. You can not get abstinence from being around enablers, entourage, parents, friends. A good source to hang around is dr. sober companion.

how do prescription drugs get in your medicine cabinet?

How do prescription drugs get in your medicine cabinet?

Drug czar Richard Gil Kerlikowske
United States Office of National Drug Control policy

The drug czar Richard Gil Kerlikowske of the United States Office of National Drug Control policy, recently went on record by deflecting blame by pharmaceutical companies for drug addiction and over dose deaths and instead placing the blame solely on the parents.

Dear drug czar. Maybe you can answer these questions, if you really blame the parents?

How many millions of dollars are required to get a highly addictive drug FDA approved?
How many drugs show up in the pharmacy that are not FDA approved?
How do pharmaceutical drugs get to the pharmacy?

How many times have you heard the drugs side effect is more beneficial than what it was created for?

Drugs like viagra were not meant for erectile disfunction, but as a heart medication. The same for rogaine for hair growth, etc...

Is it possible that highly addictive drugs masqueraded as LIFE SAVING pharmaceuticals, but the SECRETLY KNOWN use was for very different reasons and the another secretly known side effect is to get people ADDICTED.

We now know that tobacco industry knew about addiction and increased levels of nicotine to keep people addicted. They also knew about the continued use causing cancer and painful deaths.

How many people will need to die of prescription drugs before our government puts an end to this?

The problem of prescription drugs might be blamed on parents, but not for the same reasons people think. (Read Dr. Sober's blog on what the parents are really to blame for.)

The real problem is thinking that pharmaceutical companies who spend billions to addict you are not to blame.

Another addiction people have:
Think of petrol / gas for your auto. The monopoly addiction is when you can't get from point A to point B without buying gas for your automobile. Can't the governments change to a different fuel that we are not so addicted to?

This is the same reason that pharmaceutical companies can't possibly be blamed.
They give to much money in their lobbying efforts to the politicians in government.

Another example is when you watched me on NBC today with my anti drug message, some of the commercials shown at the break were for pharmaceutical prescription drugs. Does NBC have any ethics at all?

The correction of prescription drugs starts when politicians and media stop taking blood money from pharmaceutical companies that addict and kill people by the millions.

A Sober Companion might be the answer to saving your childrens lives, if you don't really think the medicine cabinet is to blame.

NBC deletes Michael Jackson drug addiction bombshell interview to risk actors life

Dr. Rob Tencer on NBC Today Show
July 10, 2009

Dr. Sober Companion was featured this morning on the #1 morning show in the USA, NBC The Today Show, in a special story called: "Undercover: Prescription meds in Hollywood". The video is available online from NBC entitled: "Undercover: getting drugs in Hollywood". The description of the segment on the NBC site is "
Video: TODAY examines how easy it is for people with cash to get drugs."

The Truth behind the scenes of the NBC Today Show segment

After the media request from NBC today show producers, and on a very short notice, (within 1 hour) Dr. Sober Companion and his staff hurried to get media prepared in our own wardrobe, notes and rushed to the NBC studio in Burbank, California so they could record our segment and work on other segments that eventually people backed out of.

(many people backed out in fear of their life and of their medical licenses for what they were going to reveal, which would have incriminated themselves on the highest rated morning TV show in the USA.)

Dr. Sober Companion and his intake specialist Logan, (now revealed to be an actual drug addict and alcoholic named david lerman) sat side by side and gave a riveting interview of bombshell after bombshell. The NBC producer, had us give individual interviews, and would not allow us to speak as a team, and would not allow us to speak about the Dr. Sober Companion work that saves lives. They didn't seem to even care about our Michael Jackson drug addiction bombshells, and had their own agenda and set of questions.

During the interview, dr. sober companion explained in detail our technique on how we have become such experts about latest drugs and trends.

Dr. Sober Companion explained exactly what we do and why for the segment. Dr. Sober Companion explained what we do is to go undercover as a patient to the dr. feelgood offices.

Dr. Sober Companion expertly trained staff also pose as patients at rehab centers, and 12 step meetings.

The person who interviewed Logan (now revealed to be an actual drug addict and alcoholic named david lerman) and myself was so interested in this technique, that they cut my entire interview bombshell and all, into 1 sentence.

NBC Today show also cut in its entirety the interview of Logan (whom I insisted sit next to me), who dropped bombshells and made several wake up calls, that were certain to expose the truth about drug addiction in the Michael Jackson death. (Logan, now revealed to be an actual drug addict and alcoholic named david lerman)

Dr. Rob Tencer on NBC Today Show
July 10, 2009

For NBC to get the undercover operation, they hired my employee's that I originally gave them access to, but I backed out because I feared that they were risking the lives of my staff for their own agenda.

Before I backed out of the NBC undercover operation, Logan was in charge of training my staff for the undercover operation, and the staff member who continued with NBC undercover operation against the stern wishes of Dr. Sober Companion, became unemployed. (It was now revealed that Logan is an actual drug addict and alcoholic named david lerman, and was never employed by dr. sober companion, regardless of his expertise in his own drug addiction)

NBC made many promises for dr. sober companion's involvement including featuring my staff and myself and the dr. sober blog that originally gained the interest of the NBC today show producers.

The NBC producers and the reporter of the segment, constantly assured me that the blog would be shown in screen shots with the address prominently featured. NBC was dishonest, and were full of deceit by not following through with their promises. They lied to get my full cooperation.

They completely negated the message that dr. Sober stands for and the message that we know will save the lives of people who hear it.

We only ask that in any future media requests for interviews, you allow us to help save lives by spreading the dr. sober message.

Dr. Sober is available for media interviews, and can be reached by clicking below.

Why Dr. Drew Pinsky should not be considered a national expert on drug addiction unless you consider his clinical expertise at failure.

Dr. Drew Pinsky should not be considered a national expert

What is the role of: Internal medicine chief
and medical director of chemical dependency at
Las Encinas Hospital in Pasadena?

Dr. Drew Pinsky claimed innocence, but the parents beg to differ.

The following article is why Dr. Drew Pinsky should not be considered a national expert on drug addiction unless you consider his clinical expertise at failure.

When parents care enough to help their children with expensive rehab clinics like Las Encinas, they place their trust in people like Dr. Drew Pinsky.

Responsible parents of Alex Clyburn's mother, Arline Clyburn and other responsible parents like father of Jeffrey Hearn, just wanted their children to live through the night at Las Encinas, and found out that their children died in the hands of a facility that Dr. Drew Pinsky was the director of. Dr. Drew Pinsky claimed innocence, but the parents beg to differ.

When you pick a dr. based on a TV reality show, where the patients being treated by the TV doctor have a 0% recovery and a 100% relapse rate, you are asking for trouble for your children.

Using Reality TV doctor advice in your real life crisis have resulted in deaths of children addicted to drugs. Even though dr. drew pinsky is a real doctor, the advice given during a reality show is not meant for gulible viewers to take seriously.

The parent of one of Dr. pinsky's victims said "I picked Dr. Drew Pinsky's rehab facility because of a couple of things." 1. Our son had been watching Dr. Drew Pinsky's program on TV"," 2. Dr. Drew Pinsky was considered a national expert. 3. The professional people who were experts in chemical dependency, 4. Our son had been watching Dr. Drew Pinsky's program on TV and was very impressed with his level of success" (perceived success as skewed for television. In reality there is patient confidentiality on these things)

When your name is being used to promote The Las Encinas facility's chemical dependency program as its director, The Los Angeles Times claims that Pinsky was the only physician whose photo was featured on the hospital website home page. It is now removed. Regardless of denials by Dr. Drew Pinsky, host of radio's "Love Line" and "Celebrity Rehab." Dr. Drew Pinsky has to take the blame for the daily functioning and staff of the Las Encinas rehab facility or admit he is a total fake.

Dr. Drew Pinsky decried: "These were not my patients", even though he is in charge of the facility, he has the audacity of denial.

If you love the title of Las Encinas facility director, like dr. drew pinsky enjoyed and get paid for the role, dr. drew pinsky must certainly take blame for the way the staff acted.

The parents of a patient who died under the watchful eye of its overseeing director Dr. drew pinsky said: "It was poor monitoring that led to her son's death. She continued, :"I think our son died because of the clinical incompetence and gross negligence, and the protocol that was insufficient," Clyburn said.

One of the other patients who died reportedly overdosed on another patient's drugs, according to KABC, and the third patient committed suicide by hanging himself.

In addition, the Los Angeles Times reported that a 14-year-old patient was raped by another 16-year-old patient.

Two of the patients who reportedly died were housed in the chemical dependency area of Las Encinas, and according the Los Angeles Times, the other two alleged incidents occured in the facility's hospital.

If you are a treating doctor, and you recommend professionally that your son enter his rehab hospital, to only become the place of his death, how can you not blame Dr. Drew Pinsky? Fact is, that dr. drew Pinsky did say that he had at one time treated Jeffrey Hearn, the patient who reportedly overdosed while staying at Las Encinas, but said that Hearn hadn't been in his care for several months.

To make matters worse, Hearn's father told the Los Angeles Times that because of Pinsky's support of his son, he had given a donation to the hospital.

When Alex Clyburn entered Las Encinas, a clinical registered nurse at the facility told the family he would be monitored every 15 minutes in the hours after he was admitted, but his mother said that didn't happen. According to the Los Angeles Times, the mental health worker involved in Clyburn's case has since been fired.

"He was absolutely not checked on every 15 minutes," said Arline Clyburn. "We left him at 10 p.m. in the evening. He was at 7:15 in the morning found stiff, rigid and unresponsive in his room lying in his bed.

"The paramedics called and arrived and pronounced him stiff and rigid and they didn't even perform CPR, and at 7:45 he was pronounced dead."

Clyburn said that one of the reasons the family chose Las Encinas was her son's admiration for Pinsky after watching the first season of "Celebrity Rehab."

"I picked it because of a couple of things, one of which was the professional people who were experts in chemical dependency, and our son had been watching Dr. Drew Pinsky's program on TV and was very impressed with his level of success," she said. "He was considered a national expert. "

"I think Dr. Drew is responsible for the quality of care on that unit and he should have known that there needed to be corrections made," said Clyburn, who said she plans to sue the hosptial for malpractice.

"I hold dr. drew pinsky responsible for my son's death, yes."

Another reason that group therapy (12 step and rehab clinics / hospitals) don't work.

"[Las Encinas'] layout makes it harder to watch patients," said Gatlin. "There are a lot of little buildings on the grounds, and when people are that vulnerable you need to be watching them closely."Pinsky acknowledged that the expansive facility does lead to what he referred to as "challenges" for the unit managers. "It's for sure a challenge on my unit in terms of keeping drugs out," said Pinsky. "But that's a challenge of any chemical dependency program -- it's just an extra one [at Las Encinas]. Where you find addicts, you find drugs. But we are hypervigilant."

Dr. sober companion is all about giving a client his full attention and a one on one approach, and removing all enablers.

In sharp contrast, Dr. drew Pinsky admits the failures of rehab facilities like his, have problems keeping drugs out. He continues to add: Where you find addicts, you find drugs. He states: "that's a challenge of any chemical dependency program".

Dr. Sober Companion clarify: "It should be corrected that it is a challenge to any group rehab facility and not a one on one approach of sober companions like dr. sober companion.

The challenge dr. drew pinsky has, is created when the motive is greed in filling the beds with addicts, instead of increasing the work and decreasing the amount of patients treated at the same time.

Michael Jackson's enabling parents must have known he was a functioning drug addict even before child molestation charges surfaced

Michael Jackson's enabling parents must have known he was a functioning drug addict but kept silent. The following explains why they kept silent, even during the child molestation charges.

In dr. Sober companion's words, We describe a functioning drug addict as someone who knows what effects the drugs have on him and how long the drug effects last. After trial and error the drug addict becomes professional at consuming the drugs of choice, and they become experts on how to plan around the drugs effects.

If someone was a functioning alcoholic, they would also need to know how long the alcohol would be in their system and to plan around the effects of the alcohol.

Because a drug addict, like Michael Jackson, hid the fact of his addiction from his fans, he would not be seen in public while under the influence, unless he felt certain he could blame an illness, exhaustion or some valid excuse on why he looks to be on prescription medications.

The functioning drug addict convinces themselves that because they hide it and disguise it so well, that they have it under control and it is not the same as drug addiction or alcoholism.

This is why the perks are so good for the family to be part of the Michael Jackson entourage, because the celebrity or affluent pay for their silence. If no money were involved in keeping a lifestyle grown accustom to, they might have only been in denial, and actually spoken out to help keep Michael Jackson alive.

The only thing left now by the family is to point the finger somewhere else and blame every doctor possible.

The fact that Elizabeth Taylor was also a functioning addict may finally put to rest the connection that Michael Jackson really had with her. This also demonstrates why getting help from another addict or attending groups of addicts (12 step and group rehab clinics) only surrounds yourself with more enablers.

The first step when dr. sober companion is hired is to remove all enablers, which is the entire entourage including parents, family and so called friends from the lives of my clients. Only then can the client start to free themselves of drug addiction.

Sarah Allen Benton describes
high-functioning alcoholics as people who are able to maintain respectable, even high-profile lives. That balancing act continues until something dreadful happens that reveals the truth and forces the person to enter a treatment program or lose everything that means anything. (including their life).

Bombshell: Ms. Benton also believes that the functioning addiction by Michael Jackson may very well be the cause of Michael Jackson's child molestation charges, when she said: "The functioning addict sometimes gets exposed for having made unwanted sexual advances."

While Ms. Benton identifies herself as alcoholic with an addiction problem, Dr. sober Companion which is Dr. Rob Tencer DC, BS, was never a drug addict and never had problems with alcohol. To our knowledge, Dr. Sober Companion is the only sober companion to have never been a drug addict or alcoholic, which also means he will never be an enabler to your son or daughter.

To understand more about the functioning addict dr. sober companion highly recommends:

NBC gives money to a drug addict to reveal how easy it is to buy drugs

Dr. Sober Companion was featured this morning on the #1 morning show in the USA, NBC The Today Show, in a special story called: "Undercover: Prescription meds in Hollywood". The video is available online from NBC entitled: "Undercover: getting drugs in Hollywood". The description of the segment on the NBC site is "Video: TODAY examines how easy it is for people with cash to get drugs."

Here is an accurate account of what really happened:

NBC was looking online for a well known sober companion with celebrity clients, that would agree to come on the NBC today show, without mentioning his own clients, but mentioning insider information about drug abuse by the rich and famous.

After NBC read the dr. sober companion blog, NBC was convinced they had found the right sober companion. "the today show" producers contacted us first via email.

NBC was only to happy to interview Dr. Sober Companion and some of his staff, and at first discussed sending one of my staff undercover to a medical doctor's office to get the same pharmaceutical prescription drugs that celebrities like Michael Jackson, heath ledger, lindsay lohan and britney spears got.
(It was now revealed that Logan is an actual drug addict and alcoholic named david lerman, and was never employed by dr. sober companion, regardless of his expertise in his own drug addiction, or ability to score prescriptions for the highest paying TV producer or for his own drug addiction)

By sending in a pseudo enabler or entourage of a celebrity, they wanted to demonstrate how celebrities obtain and continue their drug addiction, without ever setting foot in a medical office or hospital until being admitted for the morgue and autopsy like Michael Jackson or Heath Ledger.

What NBC and the Today Show was asking for, was to much for Dr. Sober Companion to participate in.
This may have cost the jobs of some of my employee's who NBC managed to convince to continue the undercover sting. (It was wrong for NBC to compensate david lerman, a drug addict for scoring drugs)

While they still courted david lerman who acted as my staff for the undercover sting, they no longer needed the dr. sober interview, nor did they want to hear my views. The promises made to dr. sober by NBC today show producers, about using screen shots of my blog, never materialized.
David lerman, who acted as my employee who conducted the undercover sting for NBC, whom I believe was seduced by the NBC producers with an enormous amount of cash, to get the job done. Lerman told me, he had pleaded with NBC to keep something about Dr. Sober, and got them to promise to place the blog website under my name as a condition for his participation.

What NBC learned after reading my blog was that
david lerman who acted as my employee is a drug addict, and that he was so good at talking to doctors because he is a professional patient, who also moonlights as a patient surrogate by the local medical colleges and has been a lab rat for experimental drug trials.

He has also been featured on the insider as the celebrity pop culture expert on celebrity drug addiction.
David Lerman posing as fake patient

Before the NBC fake undercover patient exited the building into the cameras view, he was able to pocket small amounts of medications that the doctor gave as samples, and also hold onto a few choice prescriptions he did not include in the undercover interview. He was also able to hold onto the refills for the prescriptions that were paid for by NBC.

What NBC "The Today Show" did wrong was pay for a doctors visit for a drug addict, and enable a drug addict with his favorite prescriptions, and allowed him to sample a few prescription drugs he had never tried before. (NBC reported the drugs destroyed)

Dr. Sober Companion stated in an earlier post that he would never work against the health industry he is a part of, and is not into this form of crusading to try to destroy medical doctors who over prescribe the drugs of choice of celebrity drug addicts and non celebrities who have the money to see their doctor when their schedule permits and pay for their own prescriptions to avoid scrutiny by the health insurance companies. This should be left to medical licensing boards and proper government bodies, and not to a TV network who places peoples lifes in danger.

My battle is not with the medical profession but rather with the pharmaceutical industry who systematically produce addictive drugs that are far worse than nicotine in the tobacco industries battle to keep people addicted until their horrible and painful deaths. Someone could start out with a pain killer pharmaceutical prescription for a controllable relief of pain after a surgery and become addicted for life.

A child could easily find a pescription pill bottle in their house and experiment with addictive prescription drugs. Would that be child endangerment by the parents, or would the pharmaceutical industry be to blame?

The truth in addictive prescription drugs is:

The medical doctor never made the drug addictive.

The medical doctor didn't pay the super attractive pharmaceutical rep to convince the medical profession, individually to push the drugs.

The medical doctor didn't convince the FDA to approve the pharmaceutical medications.

The medical doctor did not convince insurance companies to add the drug to their health insurance policies.

The medical doctors did not produce free sample coupons.

The medical doctor did not place ads in magazines and on TV.

Although as NBC uncovered, the medical doctor does benefit from the $5,000 cash office visit for the wealthy drug addicted patient.
