Houston, TX. (PRWEB) October 21, 2011
According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA), 16 million people in the U.S. are dependent on, or abuse alcohol, while only one million seek help of any kind. For Dr. Frank Gibson, founder of Access Health Partners and developer of an innovative, in-home system called the Last Call Program, thatÃ¢s a glaring problem.
Ã¢Å“Sadly, numbers donÃ¢t lie, and those statistics meant that fully 15 million people were struggling with drinking issues all on their own with precious few options,Ã¢ said Dr. Gibson, who also founded the largest integrative medical clinic of its kind called Tortoise Clinic in 1991. Ã¢Å“They can either check themselves into a rehab center, spend tens of thousands and lose time at work, and live in fear that others might find outÃ¢¦ or join a very public organization where their issues would be publicly aired in front of a group Ã¢“ not a viable option for many people.Ã¢
Dr. Gibson says the Last Call Program is an eight-week system that tackles both the educational, and more importantly, the chemical root cause of alcohol abuse in the body and brain Ã¢“ all from the comfort of home.
Ã¢Å“We believe there are two categories of drinkers,Ã¢ he said. Ã¢Å“One group has absolutely no issues drinking socially, and controlling their consumption. Unfortunately, for the other group, a gradual chemical shift begins to take place in their bodies and mindsÃ¢¦ turning a controlled social drinker into the problem drinker.Ã¢
Dr. Gibson stresses that the Last Call Program, which can be reviewed in detail at http://downtoearthvideo.com/, was not created to compete with other programs or church groups. Ã¢Å“On the contrary, if somebody is part of church group or other type of program, we totally encourage and applaud their participation. Our goal is to focus on the hardcore chemical side of addiction.Ã¢
He says that two all-natural supplements Ã¢“ Sobrexa and Kalmaro Ã¢“ are used in the Last Call Program to tackle the chemical side of an individualÃ¢s alcohol cravings and potential withdrawal symptoms. Sobrexa, he said, was formulated to reduce excessive cravings of alcohol.
Ã¢Å“Clients receive nine bottles of Sobrexa in liquid dropper form, and consume the entire contents over the eight-week program,Ã¢ he said. Ã¢Å“By the way, it does not make alcohol taste bad, and there have been no known side effects in over a decade of use.Ã¢ He added that Kalmaro, the second supplement used in the program, was also designed to lesson withdraw symptoms.
In one study, 1136 individuals were put on the Last Call Program, and were monitored after six months, and again after 12 months. Of the 1136 study patients, 955 participants reported that the program worked with 100 percent success, ending the cravings and the urges to over drink, which translated to an 84 percent success rate.
Ã¢Å“Look, thereÃ¢s probably nothing more destructive in this country that whatÃ¢s happening with alcohol, Ã¢Å“said Dr. Gibson. Ã¢Å“You just canÃ¢t imagine how gratifying it is to be involved with a family torn apart by alcohol abuse, and see it restored. Our goal is to attack the problem at the source, where the chemical imbalance occurs in the body. And with an 84 percent success rate, our work has been more than just promisingÃ¢¦ I believe it offers hope to millions.Ã¢
