Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 14, 2013
The Holistic Sanctuary announces its continued success in permanently healing patients with addictions to suboxone, subutex, buprenex, buprenorphine and other semi-synthetic opiates. This achievement is noteworthy because attempts to release generic versions of suboxone may worsen an already serious opiate epidemic. (1) Compounding these events is an overall addiction crisis – every 19 minutes, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there is an unintentional drug overdose death in the United States(2) – making addiction very difficult (for conventional drug rehab centers) to treat, never mind cure.
As for suboxone or buprenorphine, it so addictive, based on a study from the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, that it may fueling a new epidemic. (3) The study, which mirrors the private, independent research performed by The Holistic Sanctuary, reveals how dangerous – more threatening than heroin – suboxone is, leaving many people in a state of depression and dependent on more prescription medications, which further destroy a person’s immune system. The New York Times further exposes the global proportions of this crisis, "The Soaring Cost of the Opioid Economy," in which the paper states: "The number of prescriptions dispensed for two drugs increasingly given to treat opioid addiction — buprenorphine and naltrexone — has soared along with opioid use."(4)
More disturbing is the fact that the number of buprenorphine-related deaths may be vastly underreported. According to the Center for Substance Abuse Research, at the University of Maryland, at College Park: “The true magnitude and scope of buprenorphine diversion, misuse, and adverse consequences is unknown because current epidemiologic measures do not systematically monitor buprenorphine. Routine drug testing protocols used by workplaces and the criminal justice system may not include buprenorphine. Similarly, buprenorphine-related deaths are not accurately tracked because medical examiners and coroners do not routinely test for the drug.”(5)
Even the maker of suboxone acknowledges the threat of this drug, stating: “Suboxone can cause serious life-threatening respiratory depression and death, particularly when taken by the intravenous (IV) route in combination with benzodiazepines or other central nervous system (CNS) depressants.”(6)
Due to the severity of this epidemic and the high relapse rate among people addicted to suboxone, the success of The Holistic Sanctuary stands in marked contrast to the failures of other traditional forms of treatment. For example: McLean Hospital, a Harvard Medical School Affiliate, in conjunction with JAMA (The Journal of the American Medical Association) Psychiatry, finds that “monitored in four week increments, individuals showed an increasing rate of relapse the longer they remained off suboxone.”(7)
In addition, at a conventional drug treatment center, cravings will quickly begin 4 to 6 hours after the last dose of short-acting opioids, leading to active drug-seeking behavior. Anxiety, diaphoresis, and agitation begin after 8 to 12 hours and the other symptoms after 12 to 24 hours. Peak withdrawal discomfort usually occurs after 36 to 72 hours.(8)
For Johnny Tabaie, “Johnny The Healer,” (see also http://www.johnnythehealer.com/) the Founder of The Holistic Sanctuary, permanently ending addiction to suboxone is part of an advanced brain healing treatment, which puts an immediate stop to acute withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Through his safe, all-natural and effective solution, known as the Pouyan Method, Johnny corrects the root causes of all addictions by restoring and rejuvenating brain cells damaged from chemical abuse.
More importantly, he does not label – and he does not treat – addiction as an incurable disease. The ultimate proof of that point comes from the unsolicited video testimonials of guests, which are powerful, life-changing stories of people who experienced the physical, emotional and financial pain of conventional rehab, turning to The Holistic Sanctuary as their last means of hope.

“Addiction to suboxone is very difficult to treat because of the potency of this drug, which becomes even more dangerous when combined with a cocktail of other prescription medications. Patients then face two significant challenges, which conventional drug treatment centers overlook: The severity of suboxone itself, intensified by additional medicines for which there are no double-blind studies. Any one of these drugs has a long list of side effects, but together, the consequences can be many times more toxic, with complications such as: Liver damage, stroke, heart attack, renal failure, suicidal thoughts and death. We permanently end these addictions – and we do so naturally, without any prescription medications, 12-step programs or attack therapy – because we seek to unify the mind, body and soul so people can have a second chance at life,” says Mr. Tabaie.
