Gaithersburg, MD (PRWEB) December 29, 2009 -- On the heels of its remarkable success in alcohol recovery, National Institute For Alcohol Recovery (NIFAR®) is launching the next generation of the Regenerate® program in time for New Year’s resolutions. This updated, digital program is now available online via high-speed streaming audio and downloads for an iPod® or mp3 player. The new Regenerate will help even more problem drinkers by providing immediate, private recovery – anytime or anywhere. NIFAR is also offering free support by expert staff, 24/7, to ensure success.
Dr. Devang Gandhi, board-certified physician in addiction medicine and senior medical advisor to NIFAR stated, “Most people who abuse alcohol do not seek help due to personal embarrassment, disruption of daily routines, and the high cost of rehab which is typically not covered by insurance. Regenerate is specifically designed to overcome all these barriers”. This is unprecedented in available recovery options.
Dr. Thomas Goldbaum, Associate Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University, board-certified cardiologist, and member of the NIFAR medical advisory board noted, “Traditionally, physicians have had few recovery options to recommend without sacrificing patient privacy”, he said. “I believe Regenerate is a highly beneficial program. Now, we can quickly refer it to patients to begin immediate recovery in total privacy”, said Goldbaum.
The Regenerate approach is multi-disciplinary, integrating proven recovery techniques from the latest research in addiction science, motivational coaching, and alternative medicine. Since 2005, the original Regenerate has yielded impressive results by transforming the lives of thousands of people.
The re-launch of Regenerate comes at a critical time. Alcohol addiction is now the number one health problem in the US and in more than forty countries worldwide[1,2. In fact, an estimated 90 million Americans suffer from alcohol abuse[3. Further, untreated addiction costs the US $400 billion a year – which is six times the cost of treating heart disease and diabetes and four times the cost of treating cancer[4. However, Regenerate is reducing this social and economic impact by transforming the lives of thousands of people abusing alcohol.
The NIFAR website has also been redesigned to be a comprehensive resource for alcohol education, recovery and support. It features many video success stories inspired by actual participants. To learn more, please visit www.nifar.com. Or contact Kamran Loghman, Executive Director, at 301.216.2220.
This breakthrough self-help and coaching program is designed to combat alcohol addiction from many angles and promote recovery. Regenerate is based on the latest research including neuroplasticity – a retraining of the brain to help reverse alcohol addiction. It may be used as a stand-alone solution or as a complement to current treatment plans such as rehabilitation, psychotherapy, or 12 step meetings to enhance success. All accompanying materials are professionally produced, straightforward, and easy to use – enabling many who are suffering with alcohol addiction to seek sobriety, often for the first time. To learn more about Regenerate, neuroplasticity, and alcohol addiction visit www.nifar.com.
NIFAR is an organization of devoted recovery experts and addiction researchers. Its goal is to advance recovery with the latest proven techniques. In addition to Regenerate, NIFAR offers a family support program called Restore® that provides effective tools for loved ones to cope with the challenges of recovery. Also, NIFAR has a fun and informative Youth Awareness program that gives teens vital information to help them make smart decisions. The tone of each program is positive and uplifting, and they all convey enthusiasm for the participant’s future. Further, each daily segment reinforces empowerment, healing, and lasting change.
