With Dr. Jay Faber

Dr. Faber Seeks To Have “Escape” (with NAMED) Introduced To U.S. Jails and Prisons
Suwanee, GA/April 18, 2016 – Nutritional Addiction Mitigation Eating & Drinking (NAMED), a nutritional program that works with addiction withdrawal announces that it has formed a strategic collaboration with renowned clinical and forensic psychiatrist, Dr. Jay Faber. Dr. Faber currently practices at the Amen Clinic in Costa Mesa, California, and recently published “ESCAPE – Rehab Your Brain to Stay Out of the Legal System”. The purpose of the collaboration is to introduce NAMED along with “ESCAPE” into jails and prisons across the United States. “ESCAPE” offers a compelling and insightful read for those individuals who regularly break the law and need to find proven methods of dramatically changing their ways and thus getting their lives back on track. Dr. Faber believes the key to making a change of this magnitude is transforming an unhealthy brain into a healthy one. Additionally, Dr .Faber will introduce NAMED to his patients.
“We are very excited to be collaborating with Dr. Jay Faber,” said Dr. Keith Kantor, CEO and founder of NAMED. “Dr. Faber is a highly regarded psychiatrist, and we believe that his mission of changing the health of an individual’s brain is in line with NAMED in terms transforming an individual’s nutrition and diet from an unhealthy to healthy state to help defeat addictions.”
Founded in 1989, the Amen Clinics (www.amenclinics.com) put into practice the groundbreaking brain research and decades of professional experience of Dr. Daniel Amen, a highly-lauded advocate of brain imaging and pioneer of natural, brain-oriented treatment for some of humanity’s most common ailments. The Amen Clinics Method represents a true paradigm shift in optimizing and healing the brain. Dr. Amen and his team of medical professionals believes it is critical to look at your brain within the context of your life. The Amen Clinics Method integrates the important aspects of a person’s life including:
* Looking at specific biological, psychological, social, and spiritual influences
* Neuropsychological testing
* Brain SPECT imaging at rest and during concentration
* Lab tests (when necessary)
Amen Clinics has six locations: Atlanta, Manhattan, Costa Mesa, California, San Francisco, Washington D. C., and Seattle.
Dr. Jay Faber is a clinical and forensic psychiatrist with more than two decades of experience in Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatry and Pharmacological Management, treating patients in clinical private practices in Colorado, California and Georgia.
Before coming to the Amen Clinics, Dr. Faber served as Vice President and Medical Director, for ValueOptions Public Service Division, North Texas, serving 1.1 million members. In this role, he created a new cost effective formulary that provided appropriate and effective pharmacological agents to its members.
Prior to this position, Dr. Faber served as the National Medical Director for Humana’s Behavioral Health Division. During his stay, he initiated a medical and behavior integration system that supports patients’ psychological as well as medical needs.
“ESCAPE – Rehab Your Brain to Stay Out of the Legal System” is Dr. Faber’s first book and was released at the end of 2015. It is free and available in ebook format at www.drjayfaber.com Dr. Faber hopes “Escape” will be used as a resource in U.S. prisons and jails by those who are incarcerated in addition to the staffs at those respective institutions. Due to the fact 85 percent of all inmates suffer from some kind of substance abuse and are seven times more likely than the average person to have suffered traumatic brain injury, Dr. Faber believes there is a real opportunity to work on the rehabilitation of their brains, transforming brain health in the process, as well as addressing other issues and learning some basic skills to get their lives in order. With thousands of inmates on the cusp of re-entering society, Dr. Faber knows that such rehabilitation is critical to their success back on the street. By not addressing the issue of mental health, there is a very good chance recidivism rates will remain unacceptably high.
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 work improperly. 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.
Once the patient is discharged from an addiction facility, they will be given a code so they can enter the website (www.namedprogram.com) and continue to get menus and recipes which will continue to lower the relapse rate. They will also have access to stable alkaline water (Aqua OH-), which will help balance their Ph and help prevent inflammation, which will also help lower the relapse rate.
NAMED now works with Intensive Outpatient Clinics using the same system. NAMED now also works with therapists treating substance abuse. This allows NAMED to be in every place a person with substance abuse may go.
A new program that is getting a lot of attention, especially from NAMI, is NAMED works with therapists that are treating many other mental illnesses. Here the menus are designed to affect specific chemicals that influence the disease, not the opiate receptors. An example is Anxiety Disorder. Those with Anxiety Disorder do not have enough serotonin or melatonin. The menus will provide that, thus aiding in fighting the disease.
