Growing in Census and Staff: Back2Basics Outdoor Adventure Therapy Celebrates Five Year Anniversary in Business


Flagstaff, AZ (PRWEB) May 31, 2015

This May marked five years in the long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment field for Back2Basics Outdoor Adventure Therapy, located in Flagstaff, AZ.

“I think of anniversaries as a time to reflect on growth and goals,” said Keelyn Riley who has been a program therapist and staff development educator at Back2Basics for four and a half years. “We are in an optimal space of knowing what we want to offer and how we want to do it.”

Like many successful businesses, Back2Basics founder and CEO, Roy DuPrez found a hole in the system and aimed to fill it.

“Unlike other 30-day and short-term addiction treatment facilities, B2B residents are in the program for six months or more,” said DuPrez. “Our passionate staff builds relationships with each resident to help them learn the life-skills — self-worth, accountability, healthy diet, exercise, routine, team work, etc. — needed to sustain their sobriety beyond our walls.”

B2B is geared toward young adult males between the ages of 18 to 30 struggling with substance abuse. Since 2010 it has expanded in size, staff and program by developing a transition program known as Beyond the Basics for graduates of the initial six month program.

“Almost 100% of our residents stay on for Back2Basics,” said DuPrez. “These are the same young men who came to Flagstaff six months prior angry, afraid, resentful… some even kicking and screaming.”

While infrastructure has expanded one thing has remained constant said Spencer Gharrity, former B2B resident and current Residential Coordinator.

“Back2Basics has been growing, but the overall goal has been the same – help addicts truly recover.”

CB-1 Weight Gainer Gives Five Food Tips to Help Gain Healthy Weight


Orem, UT (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

When it comes to gaining weight many people have the misunderstanding that focusing on junk food is the fastest and best way to do so. While foods high in fats and sugars can certainly be a tool for gaining fast weight, CB-1 Weight Gainer by Supragenix is going to give five food tips to help gain weight utilizing healthy foods.

First, the key to any fast weight gain diet is carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are the least filling types of calories and contain four calories per gram, making them an excellent foundation for a weight gain diet. Some healthy sources of carbohydrates can include brown rice, whole grain breads, pasta, potatoes, corn, oatmeal, as well as tons of different fruits and vegetables.

The next step is to start reviewing fats. A common mistake stems from the idea that “fat is bad,” or that eating fats will only help gain fat instead of muscle. This is simply not true; fat intake is very important for people looking to gain muscle mass or just general healthy body weight. Fats contain nine calories per gram, making them the most concentrated source of calories. Healthy fats can be found in nuts, avocados, peanut butter, and oils (olive, sunflower, canola, etc.), as well as in dairy products like milk and cheese.

Another huge step is analyzing protein intake. Protein contains four calories per gram but are the most filling type of calories. Proteins are filling, they digest relatively slowly, and they blunt hunger. This is why a high protein diet is usually reserved for people looking to lose weight. When trying to gain weight, a normal daily intake of protein is typically good enough. Some healthy protein choices can include lean meats such as chicken, turkey, and fish, as well as vegetable sources like nuts, beans, and soy.

One of the most key aspects to any diet is calorie intake. The normal calorie requirement for an average male doing less strenuous work is about 2200 calories while for females, it is about 1900 calories. People will then raise their calorie intake for maximum weight gain potential; ideally focusing on adding an extra 1000 calories to daily intake. This seems like a daunting amount of food, which is why an appetite stimulant like CB-1 Weight Gainer can make it easier. CB-1 Weight Gainer by Supragenix increases the appetite, making it easier to consume more calories every day and thus promotes fast and effective weight gain.

The final step is a simple one: snacks. Many people overlook the necessity of snacks but they can make or break a well-conceived diet. Without snacks, weight gain diets can fall apart because they are missing out on a ton of calories that can be consumed through snacks. Some healthy high calorie snacks can include apples, protein bars, nuts, beef jerky, pretzels, yoghurt and dried fruits.

Five Ways to Make a 6 Week Diet and Exercise Program Worthwhile

A weight loss regimen lasting just a week is more likely to be fantastic, but a 6 week diet and exercise program is realistic. A weight loss period of six weeks is safe, effective, and discipline-instilling. The first few weeks will be for the body to adjust itself for the weight loss regimen; the succeeding weeks will be for carrying out the main plans for weight loss. A longer diet and exercise program should cover not only exercising, but also dieting. If you exercise but you don’t eat correctly, all the losses in weight caused by exercising will be cancelled by the weight gain caused by improper dieting.

So here are five dieting and exercise tips that you can apply for a 6 week diet and exercise program so that you can lose weight in a safe manner. Here they are:

1. Remember the most common advice: eat fruits and vegetables every meal! This may sound too repetitive already, but we’ll have to emphasize this over and over again in your 6 week diet and exercise program. Fruits and vegetables contain vitamins that serve to boost your metabolism. Boosts in metabolism cause boosts in energy production, and boots in energy production indicate more fat-burning. Also, fruits and vegetables give you a feeling of fullness which keeps you away from fatty foods and foods that are rich in bad calories.

2. Remember to eat protein-rich foods too while in your 6 week diet and exercise program. Protein increases your muscle mass, and increases in muscle mass lead to increases in your capability to exercise. With bigger muscles, your exercises can last longer and will use up plenty of energy. Protein rich foods include meat, fish, chicken, eggs – any meat product will do. However, while in your 6 week diet and exercise program, remember to remove the fatty portions of these meat products so that you won’t take in excess fat.

3. Avoid processed foods, especially sweet foods with processed carbohydrates, while you are in your 6 week diet and exercise program. Processed carbohydrates are the bad calories – they are hard to digest, so instead of getting used up as energy, they end up becoming fats inside the body. Processed sweet foods include cookies, cakes, chips, sodas, and so on. You should get calories from fruits and vegetables, because the calories found in them are easily digested by the body and turned to energy.

4. Exercise regularly. For the first week of your 6 week diet and exercise program, you can do light exercises for 30 minutes a day. A good example of a light exercise is brisk walking. Any exercise with the same level of intensity as brisk walking is good. For weeks 2 and 3, you can proceed to more strenuous exercises, such as running and biking. You can also do strength training and you can even use exercise machines. For weeks 4-6, you can increase your activity level to at least 1 hour a day. Your exercises here will be the most vigorous.  

5. Always have some activity to do. For your 6 week diet and exercise program, you cannot afford to slack off when opportunities for activity arise. Even with regular exercise, to keep yourself psychologically committed to activity, you should seek activity even inside the house. If you are watching TV, you can do some sit-ups or even dancing. You can choose to run up and down the stairs if the opportunity arises during your 6 week diet and exercise program.

Leading Sleep Expert Offers Five Modern Day Tips for a Better Nights Sleep

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 02, 2015

While many people find it easy to be mindful of and work toward being healthier by changing their nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle habits, perhaps the most crucial element to a healthy body is often overlooked: Sleep. We spend up to a third of our lives doing it and we will literally die without it. Yet, the sleep aid sections of local pharmacies continue to expand, as an estimated 60 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep disorders and over $ 56 billion and 25,000 lives are lost each year in the US because of sleep-related accidents.

In conjunction with national Sleep Awareness Week, March 2-8, 2015 (http://sleepfoundation.org/events-activities/sleep-awareness-week), sleep expert Karen Schwarzbach has compiled a list of five lesser-known facts and tips for a healthier sleep that everyone can consider and integrate into their lifestyles. Schwarzbach, a respected sleep consultant for more than twelve years who has helped literally thousands of sleep-deprived individuals finally achieve healthy and peaceful sleep patterns, outlines what she considers some of the more unknown sleep problems – and their solutions – that she encounters in our increasingly technology-dependent and high-pressure performance culture. With the recent nationwide integration the Affordable Health Care Act, Schwarzbach’s work has been increasingly in demand as focus on corporate wellness programs now being required by the act (for corporations of a certain size) continue to proliferate.

Schwarzbach, who routinely advocates sleep as one of the “Three Pillars of Health” (along with exercise and nutrition), has outlined the following top five oft-times surprising factors that contribute to modern Western cultural sleep maladies and her corresponding secrets for a better night’s sleep:


Avoid Wine Before Bedtime. It’s a nightly ritual for many Americans – drinking a couple of glasses of alcohol directly before falling asleep. In fact, many people consider alcohol a sleep aid due to its relaxing qualities. But, what many don’t realize is it is also common for pre-bedtime drinks to contribute to one being wide awake several hours after conking out. Schwarzbach explains that while drinking before bed can induce sleep, it actually disrupts sleep and diminishes the quality and depth of sleep, leading to restlessness and frequent wakings leaving one feeling fatigued the next morning. Also, alcohol is a diuretic, which can be dehydrating as well as increase one’s need to go the bathroom, causing one to awaken from slumber. She recommends that if wine or alcohol are a part of your evening routine, try to stop drinking at least one hour prior to sleep to preserve the most deep and crucial stages of sleep.

Avoid Electronics Before Bedtime. Many people routinely attempt to fall asleep immediately after watching television, using their laptops or checking e-mail or using apps on their smart phones. Many people are unaware that these devices all emit low blue light, which is absorbed and processed by the brain and can disrupt or slow down the body’s melatonin production, which influences natural nighttime sleep algorithms. Schwarzbach recommends ceasing the use of all devices at least 1 hour prior to going to bed and not keeping phones and laptops on at the bedside.

Sleep Tracking Devices Aren’t a Cure-All. As increasing use of technology can impair sleep, the recent onslaught of new technology devices and apps that help track and monitor sleeping habits can help improve overall sleep. However, Schwarzbach warns that while these technologies can provide important data, they are often unaccompanied by meaningful and effective behavioral modification programs. Schwarzbach promotes a “High Tech with High Touch” approach, working with her clients to map out routines for remedying problem-causing factors to maximize the useful info that has been gathered.

Daylight Savings Time Can Debilitate. While it may seem like only an hour and of little change to one’s daily schedule, biannual time shifts can dramatically and adversely affect sleeping patterns for weeks – even months – following the clock changes. Even a slight change in the body’s regular circadian rhythm can throw sleep patterns into disarray, an issue Schwarzbach says is often incredibly evident in children. In order to better adapt to these changes, Schwarzbach recommends starting to adjust the time you go to bed and the time you wake up by 15 minutes every couple of days preceding the time change. This way you have helped your body land back where it began when the clock moves forward by an hour in the Spring.

Never Underestimate Sleep Environment. Factors including noise, light, temperature, pillows and mattress and decor might seem like obvious considerations for an optimal sleeping environment, but Schwarzbach emphasizes the importance of considering all five of these factors for improving unhealthy sleep. It could be as easy as taking down a loudly colored painting on the wall, reducing the room lighting to a lower bulb wattage (low blue light), turning the clock away from your bed so you’re not tempted to start doing math in the middle of the night figuring out how many more hours of sleep you can get, using a white noise maker, choosing the most appropriate bedding or decreasing the room temperature to between 65 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit (“Cool is the Rule!”) degrees prior to sleep.

“Insomnia is perhaps the most underrated health ailment in the US and Sleep Awareness Week is a time for self-reflection and education for improving these ailments,” said Schwarzbach. “Our sleep patterns dramatically affect our health, performance and overall sense of well-being. Once people have the tools and information to modify their sleeping habits, they can experience life-changing results within days and weeks.”
