    Default So now what?

    What does Ed have to do now? Anybody here been in 30 day rehab? I'm assuming there's more to it than that. What's next?
    I can't remember which comedian said it, about the current state of Van Halen, but he said right now, Van Halen is like a really hot playboy playmate with a prosthetic leg.

    BRING BACK THE CLASSIC LINEUP!

    Usually treatment like that is followed up by going to daily AA meetings- or what they call 90 in 90 - 90 meetings in 90 days. Also his counselor I'm sure made a detailed countinuing treatment planned that will consist of at least weekly sessions with an addiction specialist and other activities to help keep him on the straight and narrow. Its a tough trip I wish him the best

    It is different for everyone. I smoked for 20 years- started in 8th grade, woke up one morning and decided to stop. No problem and no cravings after about the first 24 hours. Once you make up your mind to do something it is usually pretty easy to do it. I think the difficulty for most people is the fact they don't want to stop smoking or drinking but rather they are being forced to do so.

    The mind is a very powerful resource and if you use it the right way it can make things like stopping a habit very easy. The other option is to go through months and months of rehab and meetings and the such I guess it just depends on what works best for the individual.

    No problem.
    Eddie cured his alcoholism just like he cured his cancer.
    It's all gone. His team of scientists kicked it's ass.

    I think this part of Eddie's message back on March 8th, 2007 is still in affect.

    "Some of the issues surrounding the 2007 Van Halen tour are within my ability to change and some are not. As far as my rehab is concerned, it is within my ability to change and change for the better. I want you to know that is exactly what I’m doing, so that I may continue to give you the very best I am capable of.

    I look forward to seeing you in the future better than ever and I thank you with all my heart."

    Love,

    Ed

    this is from the Promises website, about their extended care. I believe that's the right treatment joint. yes?

    EXTENDED CARE & SOBER LIVING
    Extended Care
    Promises Extended Care program is designed to help men and women in the early stages of recovery make the transition from residential alcohol or drug rehab treatment back into their community. Extended Care provides a supportive, peaceful environment to address issues that arise as clients re-enter the workplace and/or rejoin their families. The program delivers highly individualized care with a range of services conducted at one of our conveniently located facilities (separate from our residential treatment facilities and our sober living house). Promises’ Extended Care program has proven highly effective in ensuring that individuals in early sobriety get off to a positive and healthy start – the beginning of a lifelong recovery. The primary aspects of Promises Extended Care include:

    12-Step involvement
    Group therapy
    Personal coaching
    Recreational therapy
    Alumni meetings
    Transition to outpatient

    Promises also provides each participant the opportunity to select from a range of therapeutic options to augment their Extended Care treatment, including:

    Family sessions and parenting instruction
    Individual equine therapy sessions
    Physical training, health and nutrition education and support
    Mediation, EMDR and biofeedback classes
    Education and career coaching
    Step workshops
    Yoga
    Surfing lessons
    Acupuncture, massage therapy and somatic therapy
    Sober Living
    From our Pacific House, a beautiful 3,000 square foot beachfront estate, Promises offers a sober living environment for individuals who cannot or should not return to their former residence. Separate from our residential treatment facilities, Promises’ sober living provides a comfortable environment to cultivate a balanced, sober lifestyle through structure and mutual accountability.

    Promises Treatment Centers operates multiple drug rehab and alcohol rehab treatment centers in Southern California, including locations in Malibu and West Los Angeles.

    I think the original plan still stands:

    To do a tour with Dave.

    Now there are two big questions to that:

    - when will such a tour start
    - who will be playing bass

    I think Ed and Al will give Mike a call.

    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    Part of the twelve step process is making amends. I think we all know of several people who will get either visits or a phone call from Ed. It's not about who will be in the band, not now. That issue will work itself out further down the road.

    The best thing the fan base can do right now is be patient and supportive. You can count on VH returning, but don't think beyond that.
