)-- Nutritional Addiction Mitigation Eating & Drinking (NAMED), a nutritional program that works with addiction withdrawal announces that it is partnering with internationally renowned speaker, author, and consultant, Randy Haveson, M.A. Haveson is known for having created Party With A Plan that provides a practical and successful way for college students to drink alcohol while in college. The program has been so successful that it has been made into a book, "College Edition: The Guide to Successful Drinking" (Blooming Twig Books, November 2015). Haveson’s Party with a Plan utilizes a harm reduction model of low risk drinking choices while helping students identify signs and symptoms of a potential alcohol problem. Unlike traditional teachings for college students that says ‘just say no’ or uses scare tactics, Party With A Plan uses research-based information to help students make better decisions in regard to alcohol. It also enables students to formulaically identify if someone has a drinking problem. This partnership will allow the NAMED program to better achieve its core functions of high quality nutrient dense foods, balanced nutrition menu and plan, a controlled clinical setting, counseling, and amino acid therapy. Studies show that nutrition and its effects on the body are often overlooked, underestimating the powerful effect that being properly nourished has on the overall metabolism, organ function and mental health. This is especially true for those overcoming addiction. Under the NAMED. program, a precise nutritional plan and menu is developed that will keep the body functioning at its optimal level reducing symptoms and complications of addiction recovery. The program was developed by Dr. Keith Kantor, a bestselling author and internationally renowned PhD in nutritional science known as the leading expert on using natural foods to mitigate disease in the United States. The program is aimed for recovering individuals who are undergoing substance abuse recovery in a facility and works in tangent with those programs.
“We are delighted and honored to be working with Randy Haveson,” said Dr. Keith Kantor, founder of NAMED. “Randy Haveson is a universally recognized name in the world of substance abuse and this partnership with him will allow NAMED to reach and help an often overlooked portion of the population with substance abuse problems – college students.”
The cornerstone to Party With A Plan is the 0-1-2-3 code. The code includes:
0- Is sometimes the best option in any given evening. For example, if a student has a test the next day, if they haven’t eaten, if they are on medication, if they are under 21, if they have been sick, if they are an alcoholic, if they have a low tolerance, and a variety of other reasons.
1- No more than one drink per hour (12oz beer, 5 oz glass of wine, or a 1 oz shot in a mixed drink).
2- Drink no more than 2 times per week. There is a significant difference in the amount of problems people have if they drink more than 2 times per week.
3- A student should have no more than 3 drinks any time they consume alcohol. The premise behind this is to see if the person is in control of the alcohol or if the alcohol is in control of the person.
Developed by Dr. Kantor, a leader in nutritional science, NAMED develops precise nutritional menus for those undergoing substance abuse recovery. The program is the only one in the world that concentrates on not stimulating the opiate receptors or even suppressing them naturally through specially designed menus. This lowers the cravings for the abused drug, increases the success rate and lowers the relapse rate. The program also lowers the inflammation in our bodies, which causes the insulin production mechanism in our bodies to malfunction. Menus are added all the time and research is constantly ongoing to find natural ways to not stimulate or even suppress the opiate receptors plus balance the body’s Ph to help prevent inflammation. The system works in a controlled environment in conjunction with conventional methods such as counseling, exercise, meditation, education and amino acid nutritional therapy. The concept behind the NAMED program is to increase the success rate of withdrawal and lower the relapse rate.
