Innovative Detox: How Fox News Star Bob Beckel Could Have Saved His Job

Las Vegas, NV - (NewMediaWire) - June 30, 2015 - Late last week, Bob Beckel, liberal TV news political commentator and co-host of Fox News' ratings leader The Five was shown the door by Fox News. This occurred, according to a Fox News spokesman, after Beckel proved unable to overcome his addiction to prescription painkillers. Since his back surgery in February, Beckel had checked himself into a conventional 28-day residential drug rehab program, which apparently failed him as he tried to beat his addiction. 

A brand new blog -- based on extensive clinical research, and just published by Las Vegas-based Innovative Detox -- points out how recent breakthrough innovations in medical science could have helped Beckel to save his job by helping him overcome that pernicious addiction.

"Given that even the best of the conventional drug rehab programs fail more than 75 percent of the time, it is not surprising that Beckel didn't overcome his addiction," according to Dr. Lucas Furst, President of Innovative Detox. "The real surprise would have come if he'd beat the odds and overcome that addiction while relying on an outdated, traditional rehab program that relied on the patient's willpower, rather than on medical science.

"However," Dr. Furst explained, "Mister Beckel didn't have to lose his job -- he could have undergone a medically-based drug rehab program such as the one offered by Innovative Detox.  According to published research, these rapid detox programs -- which put patients through withdrawal while they are under anesthesia -- succeed more than 90 percent of the time."

On Thursday, Fox News Executive VP for programming, Bill Shine, announced Beckel's termination: "We tried to work with Bob for months, but we couldn't hold The Five hostage to one man's personal issues. He took tremendous advantage of our generosity, empathy and goodwill and we simply came to the end of the road with him."

Beckel's high-profile role as co-host of The Five helps bring into sharp focus not only the frequent and consistent failure of traditional 28-day residential drug rehab programs, but Beckel's job-loss clearly highlights the often hidden cost of addiction. 

For more details about how an FDA-cleared medical alternative to conventional drug rehab could have worked for Bob Beckel, check out the new blog at Innovative Detox. Dozens of other blog posts and scientifically-based white papers are also available at Innovative Detox, providing a great deal of useful and authoritative information about addiction to prescription painkillers, opiates and alcohol.

About Innovative Detox Las Vegas-based Innovative Detox was created by four medical professionals to offer people addicted to alcohol, heroin, suboxone, methadone or prescription opiate painkillers a rapid detox-based and medically-sound alternative to conventional drug rehab and alcohol rehab. Those old, failed willpower-based programs have a 75 percent failure rate, while Rapid Detox succeeds more than 90 percent of the time.

To help ensure our patients' success, we also provide patients a variety of distinctive supportive treatments, from IV Hydration and Hyperbaric Oxygen to brain mapping and addiction counseling. This allows clients to medically overcome their addictions and begin their second chance at life, a life free from addiction.

While there are limited risks to any procedure involving anesthesia, Innovative Detox's patent-pending ID Method -- based around the exclusive Beckett Protocol -- is medically-safe when administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist.
