Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Drug Rehab, Painkillers, Prescription Drugs

I can’t help feeling angry when our troops – the guys and girls who are willing to give their lives for our country’s ideals – are treated with the worst kind of medicine there is: throwing dangerous prescription drugs at them to control their symptoms instead of finding real solutions to their problems.

Janice Dickinson, the star and executive producer of the hit TV show, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, had a panic attack on live TV while she was withdrawing from benzodiazepines.

Posted under Addiction Help, Cocaine, Crack Cocaine, Drug Addiction, Drug Rehab

Crack-cocaine headlines aren’t as prevalent as they used to be, or as other drug headlines (like meth and marijuana), but nevertheless, they do appear from time to time. I came across one this week, that caught my eye, about a couple of crack-cocaine addicts who made a very bad move. In fact, it was deadly. more…

This week, a woman who was flying into Ohio from California got nabbed for drug trafficking.

What caught my eye in this more…

Prescription Medicine Mix-Ups, It's a Real Problem

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Prescription Drugs

Did you know that half of all Americans take at least one prescription drug? And that one in six Americans take three or more prescriptions? That seems extreme, but would explain why prescription drug abuse has become such an epidemic in the US right now. So what happens if you take one or a couple more…

Methadone is commonly given to heroin addicts (as well as morphine and other opioid users) to “treat” their dependence and withdrawal symptoms. It is prescribed to addicts every day, all over the US. It’s considered a way of helping people to get past their addiction and dependence to illegal street drugs. The unfortunate thing about more…

Once again, Lindsay Lohan has made the news. Today, it was reported that she missed a court date by arriving ninety minutes late. Then apparently, she was seen out shopping.

Prozac Popping Pilots Could Be Flying Your Plane!

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Prescription Drugs

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has decided to lift a longstanding ban which will allow commercial pilots to fly while taking antidepressants.

Addiction Recovery Doesn’t Have To Include Relapse

Posted under Addiction Help, Crack Cocaine, Drug Addiction, Oxycodone, Prescription Drugs, Vicodin, Xanax

Have you ever heard that “relapse is part of recovery”? As much as people believe this to be true, it is not, plain and simple. If someone relapses after they receive their treatment, then a basic element of the recovery process was missed or omitted and the addiction help they received was incomplete. A good more…

To Drug Test or Not To Drug Test, That Is The Question!

Posted under Drug Addiction, Legal Issues

Do you have children? If you don’t, you surely have friends or family members with kids. What do you do if you suspect that they’re using drugs? Do you let it slide and hope it’s nothing, or that it will just go away? Bad idea! There are so many kids, even young children, getting involved more…

"Non-Addictive" Drugs – Do They Really Exist?

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, LSD, Morphine, Opiates, Prescription Drugs, Ultram

Have you ever heard of “non-addictive” drugs? Sounds a bit like an oxymoron to me, but there are many drugs in existence today, both legal and illegal, which claim to be just that – non-habit forming. Pharmaceutical companies have come out with “non-narcotic” forms of pain and insomnia relief like Ambien and Ultram that are more…

Posted under Drug Addiction, Painkillers, Prescription Drugs

The only funeral director in Pineville, West Virgina, recently commented on the number of deaths caused by prescription drug overdoses – painkillers like OxyContin being the major problem. “If these people had died of the swine flu, we’d probably be making national headlines,” he said. Well, it does make national headlines – every day you can more…

Kids Whose Parents Drink Often Need Addiction Help

Posted under Addiction Help, Alcohol, Drug Addiction, Treatment, Young People

I know people who are haunted by how they treated their kids. This is especially true for alcoholics and drug addicts. Their guilt is despairingly deep – it all comes out when they finally get some addiction help. The ironic thing about it is that their guilt over drinking or taking drugs is one of the reasons more…

Are Drugs That Create a Need for Addiction Help Hurting Big Pharma Sales?

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Prescription Drugs

I read a news article today that attributed the slowing sales growth of drug companies to the fact that their patents are running out and they’re not coming up with any new drugs to fill the void. Geez, don’t you think it could have something to do with the fact that many of the drugs more…

Every day I see articles telling parents to discuss drugs with their children if they want them to stay drug-free.

Are Energy Drinks a Gateway Drug?

Posted under Adderall, Addiction Help, Cocaine, Drug Addiction, Methamphetamine, Prescription Drugs, Ritalin

I recently had occasion to meet one of the major marketing people for perhaps the best-known energy drink. More caffeine than about 10 cups of coffee in one little can. She confessed to having been wired on this stuff – but said she’s now down to about 6 cans a day. I don’t know the stats on her more…

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Prescription Drugs, Suboxone, West Virginia

A doctor in West Virginia recently had her license suspended for treating too many drug addicts with Suboxone. She was limited to 100 patients by law, and she was treating 200. They warned her, but she didn’t get rid of those patients quickly enough and, when we was next investigated, was still treating 170, so more…

Performance-enhancing drugs are in the news again – this time it’s with sports, check out Why Isn’t There Nearly As Big A Fuss About Amphetamines In Baseball As There Is About Steroids? Some people have even suggested prescription painkillers should also be disallowed as, without them, some athletes couldn’t perform, hence, they’re performance-enhancing drugs.
