Have You Seen ‘Detoxification Products’ Around the House?

Posted under Alcohol, Drug Rehab

“Detoxification’ products. Sounds like a good thing, right? Something that helps someone get alcohol and drugs out of their system—the first step towards shaking off their alcoholism or drug addiction / abuse and living a good life. Right? Wrong. Guess what ‘detoxification products’ really are. They’re products that help alcoholics and drug addicts cheat the system – so when they get tested for drugs or alcohol in their system, it will look like they’re straight. But they’re not. And they might be dangerous. more…

What You Should Know Before You Let Your Teens Drink

Posted under Alcohol, Illinois

A recent survey conducted in Illinois found that most teens that drink get the alcohol from their parents. A lot of parents think that if they’re supplying the alcohol, their teen will drink at home and not get into trouble, and will be safe. However, if parents understood the real consequences of a teen drinking alcohol, they would probably make a different choice. more…

More Women Turning into Alcoholics

Posted under Alcohol

NPR recently ran an article about the alcohol industry realizing that women were not ‘fully engaged.’ In other words, being a drinker wasn’t as acceptable to them, or as much as part of their life, as it was with men. So … the industry set out to make some serious changes. They want just as many female alcoholics as male and, guess what, it’s working. More women are drinking, and more women need alcohol rehab. more…

Alcohol Increases Risk of Breast Cancer

Posted under Addiction Help, Alcohol

We all know that alcohol abuse can cause a number of problems both physically and in life, but we don’t usually associate it directly with breast cancer. However, according to at least one study, alcohol abuse and breast cancer are very much linked – even when you are a relatively light drinker.

I recently read an article about a mother whose daughter died from an overdose of painkillers. Mom knew her daughter was an addict – and had been for years – but at the time of her death she was already 29 and long past the age where her mother could force her to get addiction help.

Now there is a law in her home State – which she pushed through – allowing family members to more or less commit their family to a full drug rehab.

If she has anything to do with it, other States will follow.

But what do you do if you have a loved one on drugs and do not live in a State where you can force them to get help? more…

Rarely do you see someone who is doing really well in life who is also a chronic drinker. Why? According to a new study, it’s because the alcohol takes away complex-decision making skills.
