Internationally Renowned Substance Abuse Expert and Author
Terence Gorski Endorses NAMED Program
Suwanee, GA/October 9, 2015 – Nutritional Addiction Mitigation Eating & Drinking (NAMED), a nutritional program that works with addiction withdrawal announces that internationally renowned substance abuse expert and author, Terence Gorski has endorsed the program. He is known world over for his expertise on substance abuse, mental health, violence, and crime. He is best known for his contributions to relapse prevention, managing chemically dependent offenders, and developing community-based teams for managing the problems of alcohol, drugs, violence, and crime. A prolific author with numerous books on addiction and relapse, he is also the creator of the DVD series, Addiction, Recovery, and Relapse. The NAMED program has its core functions – 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, precise nutritional plans and menus are 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.
“Proper nutrition is important to addiction recovery. In the first year proper nutrition can help minimize the symptoms of Post Acute Withdrawal (PAW) and significantly lower the severity of craving and relapse when it is a part of a comprehensive addiction recovery program,” said Terence Gorski. “I am impressed by the work of Dr. Keith Kantor.”
“I am very honored to have the NAMED program endorsed by Terence Gorski,” said Dr. Keith Kantor, founder of the NAMED program. “Having this endorsement is like having the Good Housekeeping seal of approval, as Terence is recognized as one of the foremost authorities on substance abuse in the world.”

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.
Once the patient is released 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 lower the relapse rate. They will also have access to the patented stable alkaline water (Aqua OH-), which will help balance their Ph and help prevent inflammation, which will also help lower the relapse rate.
