Drug & Alcohol Pain Reducer 
Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Disease Treatment Guide

ABOUT US

AcceptanceTM was not invented, rather my summary and compilation of others experiences, professional opinions, ideas and the wisdom of countless friends in SUD recovery, recovery professionals, recovery organizations, government agencies, learned scholars and laypeople in the AOD/SUD disease recovery community. Our primary mission to bring AcceptanceTM to market is to help another with SUD disease, in the hopes that they too can stop using or drinking before it ultimately is their cause of death

We designed AcceptanceTM to be a comprehensive “beginner’s-guide” to SUD treatment written in simple, easy to understand language. This simple and straight forward guide provides a helpful “self-assessment” questionnaire to the indications of alcohol or drug SUD disease, along with proven approaches and pathways to seek life-saving help and ongoing treatment. We have structured all content to be a purely objective as possible representation of accepted approaches (pathways) to SUD recovery as possible. We neither condone, endorse nor oppose any number of possible pathways given that SUD is a disease that effects each individual differently and there is no none-size fits all cure or program that can guarantee success or failure of treatment, nor recovery. 

Additionally, we believe that by correctly positioning SUD disease as a recognized disease to the general public in the same manner as other over-the-counter disease or ailment  treatments, can in itself help reduce the stigma, guilt and shame that inhibits many from ever accepting their SUD disease and seeking help.

Our business conscience and is to market this guide as close to actual cost as possible to ward off profiteering with the bulk of our profits being devoted to the mission of helping others with SUD disease. The majority (60-70%) of net profits from AcceptanceTM are to be used to help directly fund recovery programs, like our own ecoverycareers.com online job board, as well as other recovery programs and organizations. 

The fact is, SUD disease has been a fact of life for millions ever since man first discovered how to ferment fruit and eat or smoke poisonous, mind-altering plants, thousands of years ago. SUD is an incurable disease, a life-long allergy which, because of the physical, mental and spiritual dynamics and effects on the mind, body and soul, there is probably no other disease known to man that so negatively and cyclically impacts all-three basic human defining characteristics. Nor one more difficult to treat.

AcceptanceTM is a division of RetrofitCareers, LLC, a small, independently owned and operated social-benefit company of individuals in successful recovery, ourselves. Our business model is entirely geared to our mission to help others with SUD disease. The majority of profits are to be used to that end. Revenues from AcceptanceTM, ecoverycareers.com and any other future products or programs are to be used to sustain core products and/or services design, production, marketing and administration costs, our employee’s livelihood, provide a responsible return to social angel investors/partners, pay our fair share of taxes and use profits to further the mission of SUD recovery while helping to reduce the stigma associated with those with disease. Our self-sustaining business model does not solicit nor require public or government non-profit funds that can better be used elsewhere for other recovery-based programs and organizations. Our dream is to build a successful self-sustaining company that is pro-actively and predominantly staffed by employees who are in successful recovery. We hope to one day become a model for other companies to follow suit in the growing trend of social benefit corporations.  

Everybody wins!

PLEASE NOTE: Habitual, excessive or uncontrolled use of alcohol, drugs or both, is known as SUD (Substance Use Disorder) and is a recognized, complex disease which, as known today, will NEVER be “cured” but it can be treated in order to live a fulfilling and rewarding life in recovery. Millions of people have. Substance Use Disorders (SUD) disease has normally been called “drug addiction” or “drug abuse”, and when it comes to alcohol; which is a drug itself, most know it commonly as “alcoholism”. AcceptanceTM, in a few pages, identifies a number of programs to treat SUD disease based on a summary of a variety of proven SUD treatment programs, professional opinions, medical and psychological research, clinical and scientific studies and as well as findings of those who themselves have SUD disease and have lived in successful recovery for years without relapse. AcceptanceTM, nor its affiliates does not guarantee, nor represent itself, as a “cure” nor an individual’s success in recovery, nor do we guarantee against relapse with SUD disease, as every person is unique, and any treatment approach; be they abstinence based programs, MAT (Medically Assisted Treatment), psychiatric or psychological counseling, etc., and/or any combined combination of programs therein , are not a “one-size-fits-all” guarantee of recovery success and/or relapse.
