Dr.Ravi Chandiramani was recently interviewed regarding the sizzurup trend, see story below:
Before this weekend, a lot of parents may have never heard of “sizzurp.” The codeine cocktail is said to have landed rapper Lil Wayne in the ICU in California.
TMZ is reporting that Lil Wayne is still in the intensive care unit being treated for seizures that may have been triggered by an overdose of codeine.
But just because parents may have not heard of the drink doesn’t mean local teens aren’t indulging in it. We spoke with an addiction specialist about the dangers of sizzurp.
Sizzurp isn’t anything new in the hip hop world, but what’s happening with Lil Wayne is giving the drug mixture a new focus.

With the NFL season wrapping, MLB spring training in full gear, and March Madness basketball on the horizon, Journey Healing Centers (private drug and alcohol treatment centers) re-launches its athletes with addictions program. Their holistic healing programs focus on a whole body approach to recovery.
Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) February 28, 2013
After treating many professional athletes with addictions from the MLB (Major League Baseball), NFL (National Football League), and UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championships) and others, Journey Healing Centers re-launches its Holistic Healing Program that assists athletes in overcoming the addiction, get back in the game or retire with alternative pain treatment methods. To reduce the excessive painkiller addictions for athletes, this program provides individualized treatment with licensed addiction therapists (and many of them were also professional athletes), support from personal trainers and transition plans to help the player move into a healthy lifestyle.
The founder of Journey Healing Centers knows first hand the struggles of addiction and professional athletes. CEO Josh Lannon fought as a professional MMA (mixed martial arts) athlete. Josh reflected, “For so many athletes, the game is won or lost before the actual game is even played. If we can get athletes free from the crazy cycle of addiction, the entire team and their family benefits.” With an addiction to winning, drug and alcohol abuse is out of control for many professional sports athletes who will risk it all for a win and to keep playing.

As featured in Jetset Magazine’s article:
Are You Addicted to Money?
Financial Education is the First Step toward Recovery
By Robert Kiyosaki with Rich Dad Advisors Josh and Lisa Lannon
Kiyosaki: We are all addicts. Everyone is addicted to something. One definition of the word addiction is “the inability to stop doing something that is harmful to yourself and others.” Some of the more common additions are smoking, drinking, eating, gambling, sex, drugs, coffee, shopping and money.
Lannons: We’d expand on that definition, adding that addiction is simply “losing control over what you are doing, taking or using.” And it’s not just the physical things we consume, such as drugs or alcohol, but virtually anything — as well as the abstract. Addictions can also be excessive use of a smart phone, making excuses, victimizing or blaming… just to name a few.

Journey Healing Center’s own Dr.Ravi Chandiramani and Michael Desjardins were recently interviewed by Fox for their expert opinion regarding the Navy’s recent public service announcement on bath salts.
From the interview: A campaign to combat meth use can be seen on graphic billboards and in commercials that show the real effects on drug users. The U.S. Navy is trying the same tactic with bath salts.
It seems that you can’t go a week without hearing about another case of bath salts sending someone over the edge, but what does it really feel like to be on that dangerous high?
“High blood pressure, high heart rate, sweating profusely,” said Dr. Ravi Chandiramani. “Agitated, anxious, violent tendencies, auditory hallucinations, hearing things that aren’t there, visual hallucinations, seeing things that aren’t there.”
Chandiramani, with Journey Healing Centers, describes what the U.S. Navy is attempting to show in a new PSA that’s getting a lot of attention for it’s extreme, yet accurate portrayal of a bath salt mind bender.
“It’s really akin to taking a drill and drilling holes in your brain,” said Michael Desjardins, with Journey Healing Centers.
Desjardins sees patients all the time at JHC who don’t want to admit that they have a problem.
After all, they’re not on cocaine, heroin or meth… Read the full article here

As election-day approaches, Social Entrepreneurs and Journey Healing Centers Founders Josh and Lisa Lannon announce the launch of their first book, “The Social Capitalist: Entrepreneur’s Journey from Passion to Profits” (Nov 2012), with a timely political message – no matter who wins the election, there is a growing unsettledness for businesses to solve social problems versus rely on the government. As part of the Rich Dad Advisor team who speaks internationally to entrepreneurs and individuals wanting to make the leap, the authors wrote the “The Social Capitalist” as part of the Rich Dad Advisor Series of books. Using the Rich Dad principles, the authors share how to build a successful business for profit and for good.
This is an important question to ask yourself when taking on a new venture, whether it’s a new business, deciding on if you are going to invest, setting goals or even considering a new job. On a psychological and passion level, your “why” is what motivates you, continues forward movement and drives you to achieve your goals.
Even if the goal is providing the basics for your family, to have a better life for your children, invest in your first property, expand your business, create a rich life, run a marathon, etc. The “WHY” is important. It’s what’s going to get you out of bed in the morning; it’s what will keep you going when the times get tough. Your “why” is a great motivator in anything you do.

JHC’s CEO/Co-Founder, Josh Lannon, wrote an article that was featured on RichDad.com
From the article:
”Robert teaches his close students and personal advisors the importance of leadership. He often reflects on his experiences at the Merchant Marine Academy along with his service with the United States Marine Corps during the Vietnam War.
He uses tools like the B/I triangle to explain the difference in leadership. For example, the outside of the B/I triangle represents leadership or “context” of the business and the inside of the B/I triangle represented the specialist/employees or the “content” of the business.
Not serving in the military, I often wondered what it would be like, and what path my life would have taken if I had enlisted. I have always been very interested in military training and tactical thinking.
I am a member of YPO (young presidents organization) and they were offering a 4-day leadership seminar with the US Navy SEALS called “Leadership Under Fire.” The event was hosted by SOT-G and held in Coronado, California, where the YPO members could train with the SEALS for 4 days and experience a small scale of the daily life as a SEAL.
I was in! Being both excited and scared, I prepared for 3 months getting ready for what possibly would be the toughest thing I had ever done. And do you know what? It was!
In 4 days, we slept maybe a total of 6 hours. We did amazing evolutions (exercises that were races against the other teams) that I never would have thought possible. The stress levels were kept high and we were measured on leadership, communication and performance. The SEALS taught me that we are far more capable of achieving, than we think. In other words, as a team we can accomplish amazing tasks in a small amount of time.
Being on a Team is the “unfair advantage” that Robert talks about.
Our boat crew (7 man team) won a number of evolutions not because of me as an individual, being the strongest, smartest, or most driven (I was not). We won because everyone on the 7-man crew wanted to support the guy to the right and the guy to the left of them. We were there for each other, working together as a team.
In times of pain (and there were many), the guys on my right and left supported me, as I did for them. Without a team, the individual gets crushed.
This same is true in business. People wanting to “do it on their own” will get crushed competing against a well-disciplined… mission driven team.
When building or growing your current business, think team. Building and training a mission driven team that will be there for each other, no matter what…. is the most important task you have as the leader.
When working for or joining an organization, look at their leadership. Does the leader care about developing leaders or is he/she just in it for themselves?
The SEALS emphasized the importance of attention to detail. The leader must know his/her team in detail. Ask yourself; do you really know the people on your team?
And remember; it Pays to Be a Winner!”

Recently Dr. Ravi did an interview with www.testcountry.com on synthetic drug abuse and rehabilitation.
Synthetic drugs have been a hot topic in national media for the past few months, and concern is growing around what exactly synthetics are and how to approach the growing numbers of those who abuse them. In our search for answers to this trending problem we came across Journey Healing Centers.
TestCountry: Dr. Ravi Chandiramani, are synthetic drugs here to stay or are they just a fad, and just how serious is the problem?
Dr. Ravi Chandiramani: Synthetic drugs are here to stay. I should qualify that statement to say that there will always be a faction of individuals looking for ways to get high and not get caught. This will require innovation and thinking outside of the box.
The problem is quite serious in that one of the problems with synthesizing novel compounds is that they are largely untested and very little is known about safety and short term to long term consequences. These substances make their way into the marketplace without the rigorous testing required of other commercially available products and as such pose significant threats from a health and public safety perspective.
In 2010, poison centers nationwide responded to about 3,200 calls related to synthetic marijuana and bath salts. In 2011, that number jumped to more than 13,000 calls. 60% of the cases involved patients 25 and younger.
TestCountry: What is the appeal of a synthetic drug over another substance?
Dr. Ravi Chandiramani: Price, accessibility, perceived “legal” status, and the ability to pass a drug test are the major reasons behind using a synthetic drug.
