A Clear Sky of Recovery: The Journey from Addiction to Health and Wellness

I often say corporate wellness is impossible without personal wellness. Let me also say individual health - the path from addiction to recovery - is improbable without quality care from compassionate caregivers. That depth of sincerity is rare. Even rarer is the support necessary to make a patient feel safe enough to seek help and strong enough to accept treatment. The good news is that I can attest to the existence of these benefits, which are available at Clear Sky Recovery.

I issue this assertion because of my confidence about the facts; because of my review of this center's mission; because of my scrutiny of this group's dedication to joining patients on a journey to reclaim their lives; because of my research about this facility's commitment to the specific requirements of each person it treats; because of the respect it displays and the decency it demonstrates.

These advantages are essential for the wellness every employer wants and every employee deserves to receive. Bear in mind, too, that Clear Sky Recovery has 20-plus years of experience concerning ibogaine treatment. That training matters for two reasons. First, there are (sadly) centers that misrepresent the use of ibogaine - that it is the cure for addiction, without any risks or side effects - while most places do not have the staff or resources to manage this treatment.

In other words, the majority of facilities have little or no oversight or lack any quality control standards. And secondly, expertise is indispensable for the effective - and safe - application of ibogaine. That means there must be staff with the skills to handle all emergencies and master the most advanced, state-of-the-art medical technology available.

When I examine Clear Sky Recovery's catalog of success, when I read about their insistence on safety, when I see an impressive record of achievement among thousands of patients whom they have treated, when I observe the compilation of so many unsolicited testimonials and listen to the founders of this facility speak, when I hear these leaders talk with the sympathy they possess and the empathy they exude, I have no doubts about the integrity of this institution.

There is no ambiguity about the doctors, consultants, counselors, technicians, nurses and staff responsible for this center's investment in recovery. Permit me, then, to further emphasize my earlier point about compassion; because that attitude is not only a state of mind, it is a place where patients should enjoy peace of mind.

Picture a luxurious retreat, where the environment inside is as soothing as the atmosphere outside. Imagine the clinicians, scientists, and psychologists who are there to comfort the conflicted and assist the afflicted. Think of the beauty of Mother Nature and envision the nurturing beauty of compassionate care.

Think of these things, always, and speak of these truths, constantly, so we can make wellness a reality for the many, not the few; so we can make the workplace a place of health and happiness; so we can bask beneath a clear sky of physical sunshine and mental warmth. Let us recover, in body and mind.
