Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, OxyContin, Prescription Drugs, Vicodin

I recently looked in a friend’s medicine cabinet and saw about a dozen bottles of prescription drugs, some of which were six years old. And none of which were currently being taken. Fortunately, there are no young people in this friend’s environment. But had there been, there’s a 40 percent chance the drugs would have started someone off on a very dangerous path.

If he’d flushed them down the toilet, he would be polluting our water – the water fish swim in it (and we eat them), we drink it, and so on. When you unleash prescription drugs on the environment, everyone is affected. more…

Probably feel like zombies. And the drugs, instead of making them better, are causing even more problems – including contributing to sometimes debilitating or fatal falls. more…

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Hydrocodone, Methamphetamine, Oxycodone, OxyContin, Prescription Drugs, Vicodin, Young People

Studies have shown that kids whose parents talk to them about drugs are 50 percent less likely to take them. But for talking to work, you have to say the right things. What do they need to know? Whether they’re pre-teens, teens, or young adults, they all need the same information.

Unfortunately, simply telling your kids that drugs are bad for you isn’t going to work. Telling them that taking drugs is morally wrong, sinful, can get them into trouble, wind them up in jail, and so on and so on – all the hundreds of general things parents could say to their kids – also don’t work.
