Can a book by the owner of rehab passages malibu be used for cure to addiction?

Can the Chris Prentiss book be used

for cure

to addictions?

Every addict dreams of a cure or treatment for their addiction whether they need a cure for alcoholism, drug dependency, or some other substance abuse. They pray for the cure to come soon. As long as their dreaming, they also dream of a cure that is natural, and does not include replacement therapy.

While watching TV, they are bombarded by a TV advertisement for "The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure: A Holistic Approach to Total Recovery" Is this the answer to their prayers and dreams? How many TV ads do they have to watch, before they make the call to order it?

It seems that most people feel that the book "the alcoholism and addiction cure", is nothing more than a great marketing tool for a very expensive rehab facility.

The idea is that, instead of advertising Passages Malibu on TV, that most addicted people looking for a cure would be much more interested in a miracle book that is advertised on TV, then something they could never afford. This is a very interesting marketing angle, that ultimately directs people back to the very expensive rehab facility for the cure, but does so in a softer sell.

Getting people to think about cure and recovery, instead of their addictions is a very positive approach.

Many people were helped by this book, or the people hired by chris prentiss to write positive reviews of the book "The Alcoholism and Addiction Cure: A Holistic Approach to Total Recovery", seem to swear by it.

Even people who are now sober and in AA, seemed to say that the book can help them and others dealing with addictions, or trying to understand their life.

While dr. sober companion is all for alternative measures to addiction as a cure treatment, or a cure that is natural and helps to maintain a new approach. Such as abstinence from drugs and alcohol, removal of enablers, chiropractic adjustments, massage, acupuncture, removal from the infested environments. dr. sober companion recommends this book as a different approach, that could be your cure for addictions.

does tiger woods have a drug addiction after knee surgery?

Tiger Woods Press Conference

Tiger Woods will soon need to make a press conferencce to explain the misdirection and silence for lies and deceit to the public and his family. Tiger Woods cannot have a very private life and be a famous celebrity at the same time. Does tiger woods need dr. sober companion to keep an eye on him and remove the enablers from his life? Does dr. sober companion need to go on suicide watch for tiger woods?

Tiger Woods Knee Injury caused drug addiction to painkillers

Tiger woods maybe a drug addict of pain killer pharmaceuticals, prescribed by another drug pushing medical doctor, who can't say no to a celebrity. Before and After the painful knee surgery, tiger woods may have never stopped taking the pain killers. dr. sober companion could have been called upon to help.
tiger woods leads a very private life, when he is not being televised golfing, or endorsing a product. Now, the cat is out of the bag, and he must start coming clean to his addiction to pharmaceutical drugs and pain he has caused his family because of the drugs and bad decision making.

(please note: not all of the images of knee surgery are tiger woods, but are used as an artistic explanation of how serious and painful knee surgery is. knee surgery could have lead to the primary drug addiction of tiger woods)

How did tiger woods really injure his knee?

The new york daily news first brought to the publics attention, the possibility that tiger woods might have been covering up for how is knee injury really happened, when they wrote:
"There is not a lot known about ACL injuries in golf, because it isn't common," Altchek said.
tiger woods claims to have injured himself while jogging in 2007, but experts say there could be more to the story. "You wouldn't normally hurt your ACL just jogging," said Dr. Rich D'Agostino, chief of orthopedic surgery at St. Francis Hospital and a Yankees assistant physician. "You would have to have a fall or twist."

Was tiger woods lying about his knee injury? What really happened in this cover up? How long has tiger woods been taking pain medication for the knee pain?

Mark Steinberg is an enabler

One thing is certain, and that is tiger woods agent at IMG Mark Steinberg is an enabler, who became one of the tiger woods entourage. Could Mark Steinberg, who saw his golden boy client struggle to walk and grimace with pain have taken charge and advise his client against continuing to play in pain? Thats when Mark Steinberg became an enabler, however it could have started much earlier.
The PGA are enablers

It is a known fact, that without tiger woods competing, more than half the audience won't watch. "Tiger Woods is an enormous attraction, there's no denying that". The PGA's decision to keep tiger woods playing, was the wrong decision for their super star. The PGA knew that this was tiger woods third surgery in five years on his left knee. The whole world watched tiger woods in the PGA tournaments. Tiger Woods revealed he has been playing for at least 10 months with a torn ligament in his left knee, and that he suffered a double stress fracture in his left leg two weeks before the U.S. Open. Tiger Woods didn't say anything about the torn ACL or the stress fractures, even though we all watched him limp and in clear pain. Tiger Woods wouldn't say how he was treating it, only that it was more sore as the week went on. Could this have been an indication that he was treating the pain with pharmaceutical pain killers?

The PGA could have stopped tiger woods from playing injured. But the pain intensified through the Masters, where he finished second, and Woods said the cartilage damage developed from the ACL injury. He bypassed surgery on the torn ligament April 15, hopeful that by cleaning out the cartilage he could make it through the year. What he didn't anticipate were the stress fractures as he tried to get ready for the Memorial.

What kind of medication was tiger woods on, to play with ligament damage, cartilage fragments and several fractures to his knees? The PGA could have stopped the insanity of seeing their golden boy in pain, but continued to allow him to play.

(I suddenly remember the rule of not allowing players to ride in golf carts, and how some players with disabilities sued the PGA.)

Tiger Woods Knee Surgery

June 18, 2008: On his website, Tiger Woods announced that he would undergo ACL surgery and would miss the remainder of the PGA Tour season.1
Tiger Woods Knee Surgery

Tiger Woods Knee Surgery

Tiger Woods had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on april 15, 2008. The procedure was performed at Healthsouth Medical Center in Park City, Utah.

Tiger Woods public and private life is ruined

All drug addicts and their families know, when they are under the influence of narcotics, lives are ruined. tiger woods is no exception, and may have succumbed just as michael jackson and countless others to something that started off small, as a result of an injury, and escalated to the destruction of a career and family, let alone all the endorsement money for keeping such an apparently clean lifestyle.

tiger woods can rebound

tiger woods is young enough to bounce back, and continue his golf career. tiger woods is young enough to learn from his mistakes, before it consumes his life, and he can once again become a role model and idol to the millions of fans he has all over the world.

tiger woods must remove the enablers

tiger woods must begin by removing the enablers in his life, that let things slide because they continued to benefit from him, and did not want to rock the boat. Those people in tiger woods life enabled him by keeping silent, and this may have included his wife elin, his manager mark steinberg, the PGA, and even his caddy, who walked with tiger and saw him in discomfort and pain.
Will tiger woods lose his family?

At what cost will the fiasco end? Will the fiasco cost tiger woods his beautiful wife and children?
tiger woods beautiful wife elin

what other problems arose in tiger woods personal life as a result of the pain medication that tiger woods might have become addicted to?

tiger woods leads a very private life, when he is not being televised golfing, or endorsing a product. Now, the cat is out of the bag, and he must start coming clean to his addiction to pharmaceutical drugs and pain he has caused his family because of the drugs and bad decision making.

Will tiger woods lose his children? How much has this painkiller drug addiction affected the tiger woods family of a beautiful wife and children?

Will tiger woods save his marriage, and save his children? How much has this painkiller drug addiction affected the tiger woods family of a beautiful wife and children?

Will tiger woods push his wife elin away, or return to her? How much has this painkiller drug addiction affected the tiger woods family of a beautiful wife and children?

Is tiger woods mother an enabler? How much has this painkiller drug addiction affected the tiger woods family of a beautiful wife and children?

parents and teachers are behind their childrens drug addiction

dr. sober companion must say shame on parents in america!

You, the parent are responsible for your young child's drug addiction, and you may be unaware.
Treatment for ADHD is done with powerful drugs like adderall, concerta, ritalin and they all have the same affect as cocaine.

You are responsible for starting the uncontrollable addiction to pharmaceutical drugs that your young children now have. You may not have acted alone, but you have the ultimate responsibility to say NO, when an idiot teacher thinks your child has a behavior disorder, and recommends an equal idiot pediatrician medical doctor that prescribes without informing you that the schedule III highly addictive pharmaceutical medication may start your childs addiction with meds that cannot be stopped. You have the power as the parent or guardian to say NO!

Instead of listening to your childs idiot teacher or idiot medical physician pediatrician about a made up medical diagnosis that makes the pharmaceutical companies millions and billions of dollars by addicting children to meds, think of spending more time with your child, and if need be the following disciplinary suggestions:

1. curfew
2. remove TV from bedroom
3. no texting and no cell phone
4. no internet access at home
5. eating dinner with the family
6. no sports or health club
7. time out
8. home schooling

modification of diet:

1. remove sugar from diet
2. remove food with coloring and additives
3. remove soda pop (coke, sprite, mountain dew, dr. pepper)
4. remove coffee from diet
5. check for food allergies that cause side effects of unwanted behavior

remove enablers:

sue the teachers and the doctors who addicted your children.

Because of childrens services and political correctness, it is no longer considered good parenting if you discipline your child with a good smack on the ass, or other forms of punishment that lead your child to think about their actions before doing them again, regardless of the immediate and lasting results for behavior modification without the use of addictive drugs.

Please think of alternatives to addictive drugs, because you or your child's teacher don't want to deal with your children in a more work intensive time consuming method.

dr. sober companion cares about your children, and wants the parents to understand that it is sometimes their fault for their childrens addiction to drugs.

If famous and weathly addicts only want Lori Cerasoli to be their sober companion will celebs die waiting?

Lori Cerasoli is a sober companion that has been written about numerous times as being associated with alcoholic and drug addicted celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Lindsay Lohan, Mary Kate Olsen.

There have even been articles about celebs fighting over Lori Cerasoli, and who should have access. From the articles about Lori Cerasoli, we learn that a female sober companion like Lori Cerasoli, works best with females, while a sober companion like dr. sober companion's rob tencer, works best with males.

Please remember that dr. sober companion works on the principles of total abstinence of drugs and alcohol, and complete removal of the enablers that are ruining your life. Sometimes, enablers include family. Also remember, that Lori Cerasoli was a recovering alcoholic herself, unlike dr. sober companion rob tencer, whom never had a drug or alcohol addiction.

Please keep in mind that dr. sober companion also employs female sober companions, so you can have someone like Lori Cerasoli when you really need it.

enablers don't just look the other way. they help you die.

enablers must get out of your life, while you still have a life to lead. it does not matter if your enablers are family, friends, cleaning lady, cook, driver, sponsor, or someone you met at a 12 step meeting.

the medical doctor is also an enabler.

can you count on a medical doctor (to save your life)that keeps giving you the prescription drugs that you are so addicted to? did the medical doctor get you addicted?

dr. sober companion is disgusted once again at enablers ruining the life of another person. Even though anna nicole smith has been gone longer than michael jackson, it's only now that the enablers are getting their sentencing and punishment in court.

we have much to learn about the wicked enablers, entangled in your sons and daughters lives, and are thankful to learn how wicked and evil these people really are.

can enablers really be punished enough for killing someone?

can you live with yourself for not helping your son's and daughter's? hire dr. sober companion to watch over your children, before an enabler takes the job.

(New York Post) Thursday, October 15th 2009, 4:00 AM
LOS ANGELES - A former bodyguard for Anna Nicole Smith testified Wednesday that he saw Smith's lawyer-boyfriend Howard K. Stern cook a crushed Valium pill on a spoon and suck the liquid into a syringe for the Playboy pinup in October 2006 -- four months before her fatal overdose.

Maurice Brighthaupt said the episode unfolded in Smith's Ba More..hamas bathroom as the tragic model rested naked in the adjoining bedroom. He said Smith had been "begging" for drugs to help her deal with the shocking overdose death of her 20-year-old son Daniel three days after the birth of her daughter Dannielynn on Sept. 7, 2006.

"I saw him drawing up liquid from the spoon that was being cooked," Brighthaupt testified during a preliminary hearing for Stern, 40, and two doctors facing drug conspiracy charges.

"She couldn't swallow," Brighthaupt said. "Anna and Howard felt if they put it in the blood system that it would get into her system quicker."

Brighthaupt said he saw Stern inject Smith with medications "four or five" times in the period between Daniel's Sept. 10 death and Smith's own lethal overdose on Feb. 8, 2007, at the age of 39.

The bodyguard, who tried unsuccessfully to revive Smith on the day she died, said he saw Smith's neighbor Dr. Khristine Eroshevich, 61, deliver chloral hydrate to the Bahamas and inject Smith on at least one occasion.

Prosecutors allege Stern, Eroshevich and Dr. Sandeep Kapoor supplied Smith with excessive amounts of powerful prescription drugs knowing she was as addict. They pleaded not guilty.

"Prescription medications were never injected by Howard K. Stern," Stern's lawyer Steven Sadow said outside court. He said Smith got regular B12 vitamin shots and that Brighthaupt changed his statements after receiving money for media interviews.

"Howard K. Stern loved Anna. He was concerned about Anna's welfare. That's why he wanted to make certain that the doctors prescribed the right medication," Sadow said. "He was always with Anna, and it was his hope that Anna would take the medication as she was supposed to to control her pain. She needed to manage her pain."

He said it hard to help Smith after Daniel died.

"Anna had gone into such a state of despair and depression that people wondered about her mental well-being and her physical well-being," he said.

"Khristine cared deeply about Anna and would never do anything to hurt her," Eroshevich's lawyer Adam Braun told the Daily News. "Anna was suffering an acute psychological episode, and Dr. Eroshevich did the best she could to assist her."

Can a sober companion help a drug addicted fall guy professional athlete who got caught?

Can a sober companion help a drug addicted fall guy professional athlete that got caught? Is the problem that small, or is it not only with him but the entire sport.

What sport you may ask?

Well in many sports this might be the case, where grown men are asked to destroy and beat up their bodies on a nightly basis, while the only way to recover that quickly are through massive amounts of pain killers and steroids to aid in tissue restoration and growth.

If you were thinking the sport is NFL football, or NHL hockey, or even MLB baseball (manny ramirez Los Angeles Dodger suspension for illegal steroid drug use in 2009) you would be correct, but this post details WWE wrestler, Jeff Hardy.

Can the drug use be stopped in professional sports with the use of a sober companion? The answer is no, the epidemic cannot be stopped or controlled with the help of a sober companion.

Consider the size of these professional athletes and how ramped up on cocaine, and steroids they are. Pain makes people miserable and mean. They could potentially kill the sober companion, who is the only thing keeping them from their stash of drugs, and their suppliers.

Getting beat up or killed is not worth the money. Like Dr. Howard Samuels says, "the addict has to want to help themselves". If that were the case, dr. sober companion would reconsider.

Jeff Hardy was arrested today near his home in Cameron, North Carolina on charges of trafficking in prescription pills and possession of anabolic steroids.

The Moore County Sheriff's Office confirmed that during a search of his home they seized:

  • 262 Vicodin prescription pills
  • 180 Soma prescription pills
  • 555 milliliters of anabolic steroids
  • Cocaine
  • Drug paraphernalia
With an estimated street value of the drugs seized was $2,500.00, the question is: was jeff hardy supplying the whole sport of professional wrestling? Jeff Hardy, 32, was the subject of a joint investigation by officers from the Moore County Sheriff’s Office Narcotics Unit, Moore County Sheriff’s Office Select Enforcement Unit and the Fayetteville Police Department.

Did dr. drew pinsky kill dj am with a prescription medication found next to his dead body?

Did Dr. Drew Pinsky supply the prescriptions that killed dj am?

At the dr. sober companion offices, we were trying to figure out why dr. drew pinsky came out so quickly with a statement about his work with dj am. (Adam Goldstein)

Was this pre-emptive because of a prescription pill bottle found next to the dead body of dj am Adam Goldstein, that may have been prescribed with dr. drew pinsky's name as the prescribing doctor written on it?

DJ AM, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, was found dead in his apartment Friday evening. A crack pipe and prescription pills were found in the Manhattan apartment, said a law enforcement official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

Dr. Drew Pinsky made some startling comments to the Associated Press writer Colleen Long, that were very alarming to us at dr. sober companion.

Dr. Drew Pinsky made such hastily made quick statements, which may have caused more damage, than the damage control, that dr. drew pinsky was trying to erase.

Dr. Drew Pinsky said Saturday:

"pain medications likely led disc jockey DJ AM, a former drug addict who died suddenly Friday, away from his sober path." "It very slowly and subtly reawakens addiction"

. Drew Pinsky said: "I'm not saying it was inappropriately prescribed, I'm saying he didn't know the risks." Was this statement because Dr. Drew Pinsky prescribed the pain medications?

Why does dr. drew pinsky continue explaining pain medication as part of the cause of dj am's death? Dr. Drew Pinsky said he believed pain medication Adam Goldstein took for injuries sustained in the plane crash that required two skin graft surgeries reawakened his addiction to drugs. Again, dr. sober companion ask the question, were the pain medications prescribed by dr. drew pinsky?

Dr. Sober Companion, continues to stress to the media and to the public, that drug and alcohol addiction is a confidential matter, and should not be glamorized with a TV reality show. Nor should the advice of a TV doctor be followed, as fact.

Dr. Drew Pinsky
is the host of VH1's "Celebrity Rehab," where he helps troubled stars get off of drugs and alcohol. He has a zero percent success rate as all of the celebrities relapsed, and should not be labeled the national expert on drug addiction.

While we are uncertain of Dr. Drew Pinsky's involvement as a consultant of a new TV show about drug addiction on MTV, that DJ AM had just finished, it is more than possible that Dr. Drew Pinsky and Adam Goldstein were working very closely.

The show centered on rehab, was to start airing in October on MTV, and was called "Gone Too Far," featuring Adam Goldstein staging interventions with young people battling their own addictions. MTV said it has not decided on the show's future.

Dr. Drew Pinsky said of Adam Goldstein, he had long preached sobriety and openly discussed his earlier addictions to drugs including crack cocaine and Ecstasy with me.

It was based on DJ AM's previous addiction, that startled us the most about dr. drew pinsky's statement:
DJ AM had said:
"I am a recovering drug addict. When I see it and I'm in their room and the paraphernalia and the whole lifestyle and everything, I still, 11 years later, have that little thing in my head that starts thinking, 'Oh, where's that? I wonder what that is?'"

"Dr. Drew Pinsky laughed at the notion that being close to addicts may have caused Adam Goldstein to relapse, even though Adam Goldstein admitted to the associated press of being terrified at watching people go through harrowing addictions and it made him recall his own battles.

"That's not in any way the kind of thing that leads to someone relapsing," he said.

Dr. Sober Companion begs to differ.

Being in a room full of addicts, drives the addict to think about using every day. Even if an addict, has not used in several years. Once exposed to drug talk, he cannot resist. This is why dr. sober companion is against 12 step, and removing enablers and especially a room full of addicts from the environment of our clients, who are all talking about drugs and their addictions.

Group therapy led by a clown

We are in shock, how insensitive dr. drew pinsky is to the cold reality that group therapy encourages drug use. For him to laugh at the notion is irresponsible and just plain ignorant to us.

Dr. Drew Pinsky, tries to distance himself from DJ AM

Much in the same way he tried to distance himself from the deaths and rapes at the Las Encinas, an addiction rehab hospital where he was the clinical director. Dr. Drew Pinsky expressed his grief over the loss of Adam Goldstein. He said he considered himself a friend of the late star, and though they had not spoken for "a while," the two relayed messages to each other through friends and were "very close."

Pinsky called Goldstein a model for people going through recovery and said the disc jockey was selfless when it came to helping others overcome their addictions.
"He sponsors other people, and in his words, will go to the mat supporting people on their recovery," Pinsky said.

Dr. Drew pinsky who has been linked to the deaths of several drug addicted people at his hospital where he was the chief in charge, as well as his zero percent recovery rate of any of his celebrity clients on his popular celebrity rehab reality tv show, is still being considered the national expert for drug addiction and recovery.

Even though dr. Drew should not be classified as the foremost addiction specialist and a national expert, this has not stopped the media from putting dr. Drew on a perch and giving him a voice.

Now it has come to light, that dr. Drew may have played a part in the overdose death of yet another young person.

What we have learned about dr. drew pinsky and his methods, through recent comments made by dr. Drew pinsky in the news prove his methods don't work, and are actually harmful to anyone who tries them. re: Pinsky laughed at the notion that being close to addicts may have caused Goldstein to relapse.
"That's not in any way the kind of thing that leads to someone relapsing," he said.

Dr. Sober Companion strongly disagrees with dr. drew pinsky who laughs at the notion that as part of an addicts prescribed treatment, where the addict is placed in a room full of other addicts , he says, this won't cause someone like dj am, to return to his desire for drug use.

Dr. sober companion would also, never ever send a drug addict to someone trying to quit. Dr. Sober companion would keep all enablers including friends and family away from the client we are trying to help. Unlike the failed techniques of dr. drew pinsky who said: "DJ AM was a very supportive recovery person."

Pinsky recalled how when Crazytown's Seth "Shifty" Binzer, a former patient on "Celebrity Rehab," was going through his recovery process, Pinsky urged him to reach out to DJ AM, who was a former member of the defunct band, to help learn how to stay sober."He was someone I referred people to to learn about recovery," said Pinsky. (Is Dr. Drew's techniques of sending addicts to DJ AM the reason he was found dead with a crack pipe and pill bottles by his side?)

Which is why Dr. Drew Pinsky finds the circumstances of DJ AM's death so shocking: "It was so much of a surprise I have a hard time believing it."

Now I have to refresh your memory about what dr. drew pinsky was involved in, concerning the deaths and rapes of several patients.

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 him responsible for my son's death, yes."

Dr. Sober companion is against this method of placing one vulnerable drug addict in a room with other drug addicts. This method was made popular by 12 step programs such as AA and NA.

Dr. Sober companions method of total abstinence from drugs and alcohol as well as complete removal from enablers, is the only sure way to keep an addict alive.

Dr. Sober companion also provides 24 hour supervision, which prevents suicide attempts, and self destruction activities. Dr. Sober Companion could have saved the life of DJ AM. Its to late for him, but it is not to late for your son or daughter.

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's: "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. 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 nat the same time.

self confidence respect and success were not enough for DJ AM adam michael goldstein

Dead at 36
adam michael goldstein
drug overdose

DJ AM had self confidence

DJ AM had respect

DJ AM had success

DJ AM had luck
“Anybody who can survive a plane crash is very lucky.”

DJ AM last words... (via twitter)
“New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems.”5:57 PM Aug 25th

All this was not enough for DJ AM adam michael goldstein.
dr. sober companion could have saved dj am's life!

dr. sober companion is trying to sort out the death of 36 year old, adam michael goldstein aka DJ AM, and I am in disbelief, because know matter how many obstacles in life that was blocking adam michael goldstein aka DJ AM, he got through it, with astonishing success.

Because this is a sober companion blog, and we work on 100% abstinence of drugs and alcohol, and a complete removal of all enablers, we must ask the questions:

Was this a drug overdose at the hands of an over prescribing dr. feelgood medical prescription?

Was this suicide by drug overdose?
We know one thing, thanks to TMZ, prescription pill vials were at the scene of the death. If this was drug related, than dr. sober companion could have saved the life of another young person. Thats a fact!

1. the fat years of DJ AM
DJ AM underwent Gastric Bypass Surgery, which made him thin. While a fat person who instantly becomes thin, can have severe psychological problems, he appeared to overcome that obstacle in life. Although he still ate like a fat person, purchasing oreo cookies, frosted flakes, regular coca cola, cheese wiz, on a trip to a local grocery store. DJ AM was once quoted as saying: “I have to remind myself that I'm a fat crackhead who’s lucky to be alive.”

2. the drug addict alcoholic DJ AM
DJ AM was once quoted about kicking his drug addiction and alcoholism: “I no longer needed a trophy girlfriend or drugs to feel good about myself. It’s been nine and a half years since I’ve had a drink or taken drugs. But every day I have to remind myself that no matter how much time I have behind me, I’m still a drug addict. At any given moment, I’m five seconds away from walking up to someone, grabbing their drink out of their hand and downing it. And if I do that, within a week, tops, I’ll be smoking crack.” DJ AM sounds like a member of AA or NA, in that he still classifies himself as a drug addict, even though he is recovering. dr. sober companion wants to remind the parents of drug addicts and alcoholics seeking help in drug and alcohol rehab, that once someone is a drug addict or alcoholic, they remain one, and that is why it is dangerous to leave your children with a drug addict or alcoholic in a drug rehab facility, no matter how expensive it may be. Sources tell TMZ prescription pill bottles were found near DJ AM's body this afternoon. A law enforcement source on scene tells TMZ a glass "crack pipe" was found in his bedroom. The pill bottles were found in the kitchen.

3. the hobnobbing years of DJ AM
DJ AM was once quoted about his girlfriends: “I no longer needed a trophy girlfriend or drugs to feel good about myself. " appearently, yes you did need something other than drugs to feel good about yourself. Breaking up is very hard and leads to depression.

4. the private jet crash of DJ AM
DJ AM had luck: “Anybody who can survive a plane crash is very lucky.” Thats why dr. sober companion felt, if you have a man that is this lucky, to cheat death, that he could accomplish anything in life. Unfortunately, guilt is very strong, and the death of 4 people on the same flight, may have been to much to handle. Parents can enable their children and unknowingly push their children to near death drug overdoses with their own brand of guilt. Sometimes you need to hire dr. sober companion to remove the enablers, and poisonous people from your childrens lives, including yourselves. (but not permanently)

We're also told DJ AM was having a very hard time dealing with post-traumatic stress from the plane crash he survived in September of last year.

5. the earlier suicide attempts of DJ AM
DJ AM was once quoted about his past suicide attempt: “at 24 I felt like my life was over. I went into my living room, reached into a cabinet above my TV and grabbed my gun, a loaded .22. I sat back on my heels, cocked it and put it into my mouth. I pulled the trigger. The gun didn’t go off. I thought, ‘Are you kidding me? I’m such a fucking failure I can’t even kill myself? I dropped the gun and broke down. That was the turning point in my life.” How many chances in life do people have to cheat death? If you see a destructive pattern is growing, you must take drastic steps as a parent to intercede. One way to intercede is by hiring a sober companion like dr. sober companion, who may be able to distract your child long enough to turn the corner and for them to go in a different direction then suicide.

possible causes of death that people are speculating around the internet:

coronary heart disease?
drug overdose by an over prescribing dr. feelgood medical prescription?

Some details:

Adam Goldstein — was found dead this afternoon in New York City.Law enforcement sources tell tmz he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 PM.

DJ AM had not been seen or heard from for a few days. One of his friends went to check on him, but got no response after knocking on his apartment door.

The friend called the police, who broke down the door and then found DJ AM’s body.

Sources said drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment. He was 36 years old.

DJ AM was a major attraction and was worth the wait of getting into wherever he was spinning. DJ AM had a unique mix of hip-hop, rock and ‘80s hits that made for a great time on the usually crowded dance floor. Even though DJ AM was not there nightly, LAX usually has a celeb or at least A-List DJ ranging from Steve Aoki to Benji Madden from Good Charlotte or Adam 12 of She Wants Revenge.

DJ AM was sought after around the entire world, and had opened a second club LAX at the luxor in las vegas. club LAX in vegas is known as the hottest club to land in Sin City, LAX Nightclub, continues to rock The Strip with unrivaled parties.

DJ AM dated socialite and reality TV star Nicole Richie and also singer/actress Mandy Moore. DJ AM also was linked to Canadian supermodel Jessica Stam. Basically, DJ AM was a bonafide pimp.

DJ AM was also a former member of the rock band, Crazy Town, known for their hit, “Butterfly”. DJ AM has also scratched on albums for Papa Roach, Madonna, Will Smith and Shifty. DJ AM has played private events for celebs like Jim Carrey, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Lopez, Ben Stiller, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore, Kate Hudson. DJ AM had recently collaborated with Travis Barker of blink-182 and +44 in several performances.

DJ AM is also an avid ’sneakerhead’ and collects a variety of athletic shoes, the majority of which are by nike. His collection of over 600 shoes, includes a pair of Nike Air Force 1 shoes that were created specifically for him, with his DJ AM logo appearing on the shoe itself.

Gastric bypass surgery:

First of all, if you didn’t know, DJ AM wasn’t always a skinny guy. Before he dated Nicole Ritchie, he was a fat guy, that underwent Gastric Bypass Surgery. I found this study online which documents my suspicions regarding high suicide rates of patients of gastric bypass/stomach stapling surgery.

October 29, 2007 — Extremely obese Pennsylvania residents undergoing weight loss surgery over a 10-year period had a higher-than-expected mortality rate from suicide, according to a new study appearing in the October issue of Archives of Surgery. The study also uncovered an excess of deaths due to coronary heart disease among these surgery patients.

The large number of deaths from suicides and drug overdoses is “a cause for concern,” the authors, led by Bennet I. Omalu, MD, from the University of Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania, write. The fact that most of these deaths occurred at least 1 year after surgery suggests that “careful follow-up, especially the need to recognize and treat depression, should be provided for patients who have undergone bariatric (gastric bypass) surgery,” they write.

The private jet crash:

The plane that crashed, killing 4, is owned by Global Exec Aviation, a Long Beach-based charter company, and was certified to operate last year, an NTSB official said.

DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, has been released from the hospital after suffering injuries from a plane crash that killed four people last week, his rep confirmed to Access Hollywood.

“Adam Goldstein has been released from Doctors hospital,” the rep said in a statement. “While he is deeply saddened by the events he is thankful for all of the love and support he has been receiving from fans and friends world wide. We ask that you continue respect his privacy as he rests and heals and mourns the loss of his friends”.

Adam arrived back home on Thursday – by bus.

“That might tell you something about his desire to use or not use airplanes in the future,” Perez said.
But while DJ AM has returned, fellow passenger and TRVSDJ-AM musical collaborator, Travis Barker remains in the hospital.
“[Adam] just said to me to pray for Travis, so that makes me a little concerned that Travis’ injuries might be more severe than his were,” Perez said.

One of the first responders to the crash has said that Barker and DJ AM escaped the flaming wreckage by sliding down the jet’s wing.

“They said the plane went down. They didn’t say how or if they knew,” Lt. Jason Shumpert of the South Congaree Police Department told the Associated Press. “Once it went down, they were able to slide down the wing of the plane, and they jumped on each other to put fires on each other out and rolled around on the ground.”

Shumpert said he didn’t know until later that the two badly burned men were former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and celebrity disc jockey DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein. One of their doctors at a Georgia burn hospital said he expects them to fully recover from their second- and third-degree burns.

A video of the Friday night crash scene shot from Shumpert’s police car shows an inferno next to the road, with screams ringing out above the din of sirens of ambulances and fire trucks. Shumpert said the screaming voice belonged to Barker, who was trembling and seemed to be in intense pain as he sat on the sidewalk, waiting for medical help to arrive.

“Travis, you could tell he was in pain,” Shumpert said. “He just kept saying: ‘That’s my friends in the plane, that’s my friends in the plane.’”

Officials with the National Transportation Safety Board have not said what caused the crash. A cockpit voice recorder revealed that crew members thought a tire blew and tried to abort the takeoff. The Learjet shot off the end of the runway, ripped through a fence and crossed a highway before coming to rest, engulfed in flames.

NTSB officials, who have recovered pieces of tire from the runway, planned to return to Washington on Thursday. Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co., which made the tires, has said it is cooperating with the investigation.

“It was divine intervention that they got out,” he said. “They should be commended for being able to get out and keep their heads together.”

“Since both Barker and Goldstein are in overall good health and didn’t suffer from any other crash-related complications, a full recovery is expected,” said Dr. Fred Mullins of the Joseph M. Still Burn Center at Doctors’ Hospital in Augusta at a Sunday morning press conference.

Mullins added that recovery from such burns can take as long as a year.

A few months later he launched a lawsuit against the insurance companies that insured the pilots.

TMZ has just obtained documents from the suit DJ AM filed, and he's asking for $20 million dollars... minimum.

DJ AM wants at least $10 million in damages for medical bills, lost earnings and profits and other economic damages, and another $10 million for mental and physical pain he suffered and other "non-economic losses."

smoking gun will free dr conrad murray of michael jackson death and it is so obvious

evidence tampering by a wealthy family called the Jacksons

Everyone is familiar with cover ups to protect the family, and to what extent family loyalty plays in the death of Michael Jackson. Do the Jackson family think they can get away with evidence tampering, then after everything is removed, to return and plant new evidence not discovered by police dogs trained in detecting drugs, and police investigators and detectives?

The reason you are reading about the michael jackson death on a sober companion blog, is that I want you to know that michael jackson would still be alive if dr. sober companion was hired.

I know this to be a fact, because dr. sober companion works by total abstinence of drugs and alcohol and complete removal of enablers, including family and especially doctors hired to administer injections.

"Michael was being inappropriately treated by people who got him hooked on drugs,” she told the News of the World. "He had many needle marks on his neck and on his arms, and more about those will emerge in the next few weeks. But nothing has changed my mind that this was murder.”

About Dr. Conrad Murray, very nice of him to lead police to a secret stash that all of the sudden materialised, even though the room was checked the first time by police dogs and detectives.

"The second search was triggered as a result of the interview LAPD had with Dr. Conrad Murray, according to law enforcement sources. The point of the search, in large part, was to retrieve medication."

This proves that Dr. Murray and the jackson family are working together on a scheme that is not completely apparent at present time. It was a done deal that dr. murray would lose his medical license, and serve time, but is it strong enough to put the blame on him and deflect blame on michael jackson and his enabling family?

Well we know that this damage control method is working, because everything bad about michael jackson in truth and rumors has melted away. Charges of child molestation and secret rooms filled with nazi memorabillia, songs of anti semitism are almost completeley forgotten
and erased, now that michael jackson has been compared to a saint. Record sales are through the roof, and video game rockstar is going to release the beatles on 9/09/09 which michael jackson's estate owns most of the publishing rights to the songs used in the video game.

Crime scene / do not enter

The smoking gun is EVIDENCE TAMPERING, and it happened before our eyes.

After watching TV shows like COPS, CSI, LAW AND ORDER and even DRAGNET and the general knowledge of when the police put up a police line with yellow tape that says crime scene, do not enter / do not cross, its because of an investigation for evidence.

Is this not clear that the yellow tape is outside the crime scene?

Is this not proof, that nothing leaves or comes in the crime scene?

Maybe the police or the district attorney can then explain the following:

A moving van was seen leaving the home of Michael Jackson this afternoon after, we're told, his father Joe Jackson ordered Michael's belongings removed from the home and put in a storage facility.

Search warrants were issued to search Michael Jackson's house ... the searches have already taken place.

The searches that took place yesterday and last Friday were performed as a result of the warrants.

Michael Jackson's Mom Fears Looting

Posted Jun 29th 2009 7:07PM by TMZ Staff

The lawyer for Michael Jackson's mother filed documents in court today, sounding the alarm that people up to no good will try and fleece Michael's estate. The court had apparently had enough concern to make Katherine the administrator of the estate pending a hearing next Monday.

Katherine's attorney, Burt Levitch, claims there are numerous bank accounts of Michael's that are being controlled by third parties. He says the bank accounts are used "to pay expenses of [Michael's] parents' home." Levitch says these bank accounts need to be controlled so third parties don't misspend the money.

Levitch also says there is worry about Michael's stake in the Sony-ATV Music Publishing Catalog -- which includes Beatles' works -- that Levitch says is the most important asset in the estate. Levitch says no one is now representing Michael's interests and he wants Katherine to step in her late son's shoes.

Levitch says at least one person is claiming to have a power of attorney to act on Michael's behalf. Although a power of attorney would have ended when Michael died, Levitch worries that not everyone knows that and assets could be misappropriated.

Katherine has the right under the order "to control tangible personal property currently in the physical possession of a third party, and to marshall and secure such assets."

You know what the breaking news of the morning is? A friggin moving van in front of Michael Jackson's house. And it wasn’t just a quick one-liner deal either. Hell, you woulda thought Kim Jong-il lobbed a nuke at Hawaii (it’s a damned good thing your vacation is over Buffy) or something. OK, I go into the kitchen, make coffee, come back and the damned moving van is still on the tube.

Pissed, I do what I always do when CNN has dumb shit on the tube, I go to Google News to read something worthwhile and what do I see? Yes! A goddamned moving van.

The driver, who declined to give his name, says he is dropping off a few things. He declined to elaborate, saying he signed a confidentiality agreement with the shipper.

The van said Beverly Hills Allied Moving and Storage on its side.

Janet Jackson and two moving trucks arrived to the Los Angeles home of Michael Jackson Saturday morning.

The Associated Press reports Jackson arrived to Michael Jackson's Holmby Hills residence wearing dark glasses and went straight into the property, where outside two moving trucks were parked and had arrived shortly before.

About eight movers were seen entering the property with dollies and packing equipment, says the AP.

It us not immediately clear who sent the movers or what items they could be taking out of the residence.

Two moving vans arrived at Michael Jackson’s rented Holmby Hills mansion this morning, and workers are removing items from the home and loading them into one of the vans.

The large, white Atlas Van Lines trucks came about the same time Janet Jackson arrived. She drove up in a maroon Bentley while wearing dark sunglasses. Before noon, one truck was inside the estate’s massive black gates, and the other van waited outside.

Meanwhile, hundreds of fans continued to converge at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, lining up to catch a glimpse of Michael Jackson’s star on the Walk of Fame, with almost everyone carrying a snapshot camera or cellphone camera. Security guards hurried fans along, with one telling them, “Hurry up and take a picture!” A few fans placed roses, signs, teddy bears, balloons and photos near the star; the items stretched for several feet along the sidewalk.

On top of Jackson’s star lay a rosary and five red roses. A cluster of candles was placed just off to the side.

At the Jackson family home in Encino, dozens of fans joined dozens of photographers and journalists waiting for any movement inside the home.

As they stood outside in the blazing sun, some emotional fans sought comfort in posting pictures and notes on the wall outside the home. Others surveyed the journalists as they walked up to the wall, hoping to get interviewed or photographed.

Before noon, several boxes of Domino’s pizza arrived at the home, and a few were given to police officers standing watch. Two black minivans left the home this morning. Later, a UPS driver delivered a package.

Moving vans showed up at the Jackson home yesterday, leaving about an hour later. There was no indication what they might have taken. There was also no word from the family on funeral plans.

A removal truck leaves the rented Holmby Hills home of music legend Michael Jackson in Los Angeles on June 27, 2009, two days after his death.

Unidentified personnel stand by a moving van outside the home rented by Michael Jackson in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles Saturday. Janet Jackson arrived at the Holmby Hills estate Saturday, where moving vans arrived earlier in the day.

Two days after Jackson died at a Los Angeles hospital, sisters Janet and La Toya arrived at the mansion Jackson had been renting. They left without addressing reporters.

Moving vans also showed up at the Jackson home, leaving about an hour later. There was no indication what they might have taken away.

The Jackson family issued a statement Saturday expressing its grief over the death and thanking his supporters.

"In one of the darkest moments of our lives we find it hard to find the words appropriate to this sudden tragedy we all had to encounter," said the statement made through People magazine. "We miss Michael endlessly."

Police towed Murray's car from Jackson's home hours after Jackson died and said later it could contain medication or other evidence. Coroner's officials also said Jackson was taking prescription medication but declined to elaborate.

Moving vans also showed up at the Jackson home, leaving about an hour later. There was no indication what they might have taken away.

Of course, there was far more unease in what the exhibition revealed about Jackson's megalomania and arrested development. Or, check that: the exhibition didn't reveal anything you don’t already know about Jackson’s megalomania and arrested development; what it did was invite you to wallow in them. Remember Living with Michael Jackson, the documentary by Martin Bashir that ran on ABC a few years ago, the one that featured an adolescent boy cuddling with Jackson who later testified in court that the performer had molested him? This was the 3-D Imax version. Some of it was like Nazi art: kitschy, but not funny, or not funny enough. Or, okay, pretty funny, but you then felt guilty for laughing. Some of it you couldn’t believe you were seeing, and, yes, within that category were items that spoke to Jackson’s former legal troubles—I’m sure inadvertently. (He was, you remember, acquitted.)

Murray's silver Mercedes was towed from the home where Jackson died so detectives could search it for evidence and medication.


The celebrity website reported that a second autopsy was underway at an undisclosed location in Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon, on the orders of the Jackson family.

Speculation has centered on Jackson's use of prescription drugs and reports that he was injected with the narcotic painkiller Demerol shortly before he went into cardiac arrest.

Coroner's officials have said that with no outward signs of trauma to Jackson's body or evidence of foul play, they would have to wait for the results of toxicology tests and other studies to establish a cause of death.

Few other details were released about the autopsy's findings, but Fox News reported on its website that investigators had found his body to be healthier and stronger than they had expected, with some scarring on the face.

Moving van crews emptied the rental home of Jackson's belongings, reportedly on the orders of his father, Joseph, who was concerned they would be stolen.

drugs to stay up all night. nurse jackie teaches us how nurses and doctors can stay up on double shifts

Edie Falko as Drug Addicted hospital worker Nurse Jackie

Nurse Jackie Peyton is a drug addicted hospital nurse. I always wondered how emergency room hospital staff could pull off double and triple shifts. RN's, MD's, and Interns get the pep from prescription pills. Is this that far from the truth, or just a TV show?

Do we really need to be wary of the doctors and nurses who are supposed to be saving our lives, while high on prescription drugs, themselves? Unless you hire a sober companion like dr. sober companion, the answer is YES.

Edie Falko
Nurse Jackie
Do Hospital medical staff from around the country have super human abilities where they don't require sleep to do life saving jobs? There must be some explanation for their super powers to stay awake and alert, and now we know its the prescription drugs that have been the reason for the miraculous powers.

Dr. Sober Companion has stated many times that many health care givers and rehab staff are either DRUG ADDICTS or so called RECOVERING DRUG ADDICTS. Is this who you want to trust the life of your son or daughter with?

There is laws in place for potential abusers like truck drivers who are bound by a log that charts how much rest they have had, and DOT make it against the law to drive without sleep. Has the medical profession kept this a secret, or is their HUGE records of drug abuse amongst medical workers?

As an ER nurse, Nurse Jackie navigates the rough waters of a crumbling healthcare system, doing everything she can to provide her patients with the best care possible. Whether Nurse Jackie’s lighting into a smug doctor for failing to heed her advice, or stealing a fat money clip from a man who stabbed a prostitute and giving it to a pregnant widow, or forging the organ donor card of a man who just died, Nurse Jackie Peyton is compelled to make sense of the chaos and to level the playing field whenever she can. Right or wrong, it’s Nurse Jackie’s brand of justice all made that more manageable by a daily diet of prescription pain medication.

dr. howard samuels of wonderland clinic is a recovering drug addict, and so are most rehab workers and most sober companions (ALL EXCEPT DR. SOBER COMPANION) do you really want to trust the others with your son or daughters life?
