My name is Jennifer Rose and I've been building this website over the past nine years of working on a grassroots recovery project called 'Design Your Detox'. In October of 2014, I began experimenting with a variety of herbal formulas that can be used to support a person through a cold-turkey drug detox (primarily opiate detox). This experimentation turned into a nine year and ongoing project of working closely with people in recovery and trying to help them overcome their addictions long-term. This website is a compilation of all that we've learned together during this time, as well as insight from my own addiction recovery, combined with videos and teachings that have helped myself and others overcome many physical, emotional, and psychological challenges, including addiction, depression, chronic pain, and PTSD (although we're all still a work in progress and continue to use these methods).
Addiction Recovery requires a focus on all aspects of your life; physical, emotional, and psychological. It is a journey of self-transformation and will be unique for each individual. I have seen great results when people integrate Traditional and Holistic treatment options. Addiction Recovery can sometimes be a very slow and long journey. You might not be ready to jump into a detox right away and might need to stabilize on Suboxone or Methadone maintenance for a period of time; that's ok, recovery is not "One size fits all". You will need to evaluate every aspect of your life and design a detailed recovery plan that suits your individual circumstances and needs. For example, if you will experience a physical-withdrawal period, then you will need to design a detox plan, such as detoxing yourself at home with the support of herbal formulas, going to an Ibogaine detox center, or entering into a detox facility to get a medically supervised detox. Please design a plan that works best for you. Below is a Recovery Guide to help you design a plan that meets your individual needs. A successful recovery requires research and planning. You will need to evaluate your life, your resources, your obstacles, your goals, and design a plan that works best for you.
This is the time to create a completely new life for yourself, and most importantly, new daily habits. Please visit the Video Library and try to incorporate some of these videos into your Recovery Plan. Listening to motivational speakers, doing morning Yoga routines, learning how to meditate, learning holistic and self-healing techniques, listening to positive affirmations...all of this can add so much value to your recovery plan, and to your daily life. Some videos may not interest you but take your time looking through the video library because you may come across a video or two that really resonates with you. If you have a video that you would like me to add to the library, please send me a link! I want to share as many helpful resources to as many people as I can, so your input is definitely welcomed and appreciated.
