New Treatment Methods at Alcohol Treatment Corpus Christi Earn State Respect

Corpus Christi, TX (PRWEB) August 31, 2013

Thanks to their innovative new treatment methods, Alcohol Treatment Corpus Christi was recently recognized by the Governors Office for its exemplary work in treating addictions.

Governor Rick Perry recently praised Alcohol Treatment Corpus Christi during a speech in front of the State Legislature as one of the leaders in helping to combat one of the nations biggest problems. The Governor toured the facility along with Houston Mayor Nelda Martinez during his visit to the city last week.

It was an honor to meet the mayor and governor, said Substance Abuse Director Jordan Layton. Its encouraging to see the state is committed to tackling the issue of drug and alcohol abuse and recognizes our hard work.

In its seven years of operation, Alcohol Treatment Corpus Christi has successfully treated more than 1,000 patients. The facility is known for its use of Dual Diagnosis as its main method for treating patients. The program provides rehabilitation by focusing on each patients mental health.

A good portion of our patients suffer from some kind of mental disorder, Layton said. They include depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or anxiety. If those mental illnesses arent treated, we cant realistically rehabilitate the patient.

Every member of Alcohol Treatment Corpus Christis staff has been specifically trained to deal with patients who suffer from mental illness. Peer and counseling support groups are also a major part of the facilitys curriculum.

Successful rehabilitation is a team effort, Layton said. Nobody should have to go through this alone.

Alcohol Treatment Corpus Christi also offers flexible hours to cater to patients with busy lifestyles. The center provides group sessions which start after 6 pm. Each patient is given a support team to help guide them through the process.

In addition to mental therapy, Alcohol Treatment Corpus Christi also has a wide variety of activities to stimulate each patient physically. Among its recovery methods include:

Meditation – A State Of Mind

Among the most common questions asked about the art and science of meditation would be “what is it?” Such a question is not always easy to answer. While meditation is a relatively simple process in concept, there are still great complexities which lie under the surface. Granted, the simple process of listening to Osho music while allowing your mind to drift into emptiness can help you gain all the valuable benefits from meditation without having to seriously ponder a roadmap for proper performance. However, you could ponder on the musings of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar as this could greatly help you get the most out of your meditation sessions.

Ultimately, the answer to “What is meditation?” would be that it is a state of mind that ironically uses emptiness in though to help attain a far greater awareness of the self. Often, that which exists deep in the subconscious can be brought to the surface through quiet meditation sessions revolving around listening passively to Osho music.

There are also excellent techniques which have commonly been employed as a way of increasing the potential value gained from taking part in meditation sessions. Among the ways you can improve your sessions would be to perform deep breathing exercises or adding chants to the meditation sessions. Common chants performed by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar could be weaved into the mix to enhance the value of the process such as the album a gift of silence from the sacredmusicguide website.

For those who are interested in learning the basics of effective meditation, the ancient scripture Vigyan Bhairav is a tremendous source which presents 112 techniques which can expand your ability to get a great deal out of your sessions. While the techniques presented in the scripture will not provide the definitive insight into what is meditation but it will certainly provide a great deal of food for thought in terms of what it entails. Adding Osho music to the mix can further enhance your understanding and help you gain value from it.

Ultimately, defining what meditation is would not be as important as getting all the great benefits from it.

The moment you put the mind aside, you have entered into the world of meditation. –  Osho

Be total in everything that you do or do not do. Be total — then your whole life becomes a meditation. – Osho
