Action Based Induction Therapy - ABIT
July 30, 2018
Hosted by Ray Lynch
The program is called Action Based Induction Therapy ABIT which consists of various team-based drills adapted from Navy SEAL training exercises. McMillen brought in former NAVY Seal Vets and has implemented their highly intensive training program into their addiction treatment model. The results have been extraordinary. ABIT helps rebuild, repair and strengthen the prefrontal cortex, frontal lobe that plays a role in the regulation of complex cognitive, emotional, and behavioral functioning and Tree House is the first to implement the model.

Miracles in Recovery
Monday at 5 PM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Health and Wellness Channel
On Miracles in Recovery we discuss all aspects of addiction and recovery and how they affect our families, communities, and the relationships within them. Join us for answers on how twelve step recovery programs can work in the lives of addicts and their families. We are also open to discuss any alternative options that have been working in your life as well. It starts by looking in the mirror. Hope is in your corner.
I was born and raised in New Bedford, Massachusetts, where my parents divorced when I was nine years old. When my mother remarried, two step-brothers and a step-sister joined my older sister and two younger brothers. If you are thinking “Brady Bunch,” you kind of have the picture (but not G-rated like the TV version).
As a teenager I became a commercial fisherman, and that is where my life took a destructive turn. The waterfront was rampant with heroin and cocaine use and I endured many years of active addiction that finally rendered me homeless, helpless and loveless. I joined the Marine Corps in 1982 to try to get away from my surroundings but found myself back in the same boat after my time in the service ended.
My life changed for the better on February 28, 1989 when I fortunately became a MIRACLE IN RECOVERY. Since then, I have made it my quest to give back what was given to me, one day at a time without the obsessive restrictions of active addiction.
My life is second to none today and I encourage you to become a MIRACLE IN RECOVERY as well. Listen in as I share my experience, strength, and hope that an addict, any addict, can stop using drugs, lose the desire to use, and find a new way to live.
My message is hope and the promise of freedom.
