In an upcoming episode, Innovations with Ed Begley Jr. will explore recent advances in substance abuse and mental health. This segment is scheduled to air 4th QTR 2018. Check your local listings for more information.

Innovations will focus on High Sobriety, a company that supports a spectrum of recovery alternatives for individuals who have been previously unable to stop using alcohol and/or other drugs after attending traditional abstinence-based settings.

Viewers will learn about High Sobriety’s alternatives to traditional recovery approaches, including a Cannabis-Inclusive recovery environment. The company states that this treatment is not for everyone and is offered with limited exceptions. Additionally, residents must have been unsuccessful at previous attempts to engage in an abstinence-based recovery process and must be currently using drugs with a known lethal dose or with side-effects that have the potential to be life-threatening.

Audiences will be educated about High Sobriety’s goal to eliminate the risk of death from drug use with a lethal dose by using a drug with no lethal dose, and why they believe this to be a massive improvement that saves lives.

“High Sobriety has taken an innovative idea, using cannabis as a bridge therapy for addiction and put it in action. Many scientists and journalists have been looking at the opioid epidemic from afar, postulating that cannabis is helpful in reducing prescription pharmaceuticals and decreasing the number of lethal overdoses,” said Dr. Sherry Yafai, Director of Research & Development at High Sobriety. She continued to say, “High Sobriety is taking those perspectives and making it work. Our approach is multifocal, a mix of traditional therapy and using non-smokable cannabis medications to assist in individual treatment paths. Patients are all unique and we focus on providing patient’s personalized plans made with their best outcome in mind. For those who are cynical of this treatment plan, we urge people to think twice about repeatedly offering the same, failed treatment plan to our loved ones who are at risk of dying before the age of 40. Looking for real alternatives is what High Sobriety has offered patients, to transition into a 'new' normal life, engaged in their day to day activities.”

“High Sobriety believes in the interwoven connection between mind and body,” said Michele Nehls, Senior Producer for the Innovations series. “We look forward to bringing this information to our viewers.”
