Get Addiction Help for Prescription Drug Abuse – Before It Leads to Heroin Addiction

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

An investigation in New Jersey is evaluating what causes young people to move from one drug to another – specifically, the relationship between prescription drugs and heroin. The investigation was motivated in part by a rise in both heroin and prescription drug deaths in the area. They’re hoping their findings will prevent these deaths and more…

Prescription Drug Addiction Problem? Get Addiction Help and Fight for Prescription Drug Monitoring.

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

Florida has the biggest prescription drug abuse problem in the country. Despite that, it does not have a prescription drug monitoring system that will help isolate those getting prescriptions for the purpose of reselling the drugs to others. The monitoring program could put dealers out of business and, for those who are dealing to support more…

Your Kid’s Taking Drugs – Addiction Help, or Prison?

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Rehab, Young People

I recently saw a news item about the shock and betrayal parents go through when they find out their kids are taking drugs. It doesn’t matter whether their kid is just ‘trying’ them, or if they have a full-blown problem that needs addiction help, the parent experiences the same initial shock. We’re not talking about more…

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Drug Rehab, Methamphetamine, Stimulants

In case you’ve been wondering about the new drug called ‘bath salts’, here’s some additional information. By the way, if you have kids or friends who use drugs, you have to warn them about bath salts. A guy who’s been using the drug since December just murdered his girlfriend. Bath salts can cause very strange, more…

Should Drug Testing and Addiction Help Be Qualifying Criteria for Welfare?

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Rehab, Young People

I am amazed at the reaction to proposed legislation to have welfare recipients tested for drugs. It was proposed by Assemblyman Clifford Crouch. Those who failed the drug test would have to enter drug rehab and, while in rehab, would receive welfare. Amazingly enough, some people are actually against this! Assemblyman Bill Magnarelli referred to more…

Female Addicts Not Getting Addiction Help Should At Least Use Birth Control

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

After adopting four of the eight children borne by a crack addict in Los Angeles, Barbara Harris started a charity designed to prevent addicts from getting pregnant. It’s the harm reduction end of things – not as good as the mother’s getting the addiction help they need, but it is certainly best for the babies. more…

Addiction Help for 30 Days Is Simply Not Enough Time

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Rehab

A treatment program called Gateway, with several facilities in Illinois, is having its funding cut by $11 million. To try to stay open without that money, they’re reducing their 90 – 120 day treatment plan to 30 days. In fact, they’re even kicking out their current clients if they arrived before January 1st – right more…

Shoddy Treatment of Troops Leads to Prescription Drug Addiction and Deaths

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. About 1/3 more…

Could Addiction Help Have Prevented the Tucson Disaster?

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Rehab, Hallucinogen

It is not unusual to look at killing sprees and find drugs somewhere in the background. Often, the drugs in question are ‘psychiatric’ drugs – you never know what’s going to happen when people are taking them or when they try to get off them. In the case of the horrible scene in Tucson, where more…

New Drugs Can Cause Drug Addiction, Overdose, Illness and Poisoning

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Rehab

A recent news article in the UK discussed some new street drugs that are causing serious illness in teenagers. The drugs are called “Diablo” and “Eric 3”. Never heard of them? That’s because they’re pretty new, and not even illegal yet. Seems ridiculous that your kid could end up in the hospital or needing addiction more…

Drugs Can Kill, In More Ways Than You Think

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…

Dangerous ‘Legal High’ Drugs in UK

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Rehab

In the UK, there have been several ‘legal high’ types of drugs on the market recently. Kids and young adults have access to them either online or in head shops where drug paraphernalia is sold. Most of the drugs come in powder form which is snorted by the user to get high. Unfortunately for some more…

Intervention 101

Posted under Alcohol, Drug Rehab, Intervention

Difficult – is the only word I can think of to describe what it takes to get someone help to overcome a drug and/or alcohol addiction. About 95% of the time, addicts don’t think they even have a problem. However, they most certainly do, and it’s not just the problem of the addiction, but also more…

Marijuana Rehab Now or Hard Drug Rehab Later?

Posted under Drug Rehab, Marijuana

Marijuana, and whether or not to legalize it, has been in the news quite a bit lately. And, even though a lot of its advocates will tell you that it isn’t addictive, smoking marijuana does wind up sending a boat load of people to drug rehab. Statistically speaking, there are roughly 300,000 people that check more…

Do I go to detox or rehab?

Posted under Addiction Help, Benzodiazepines, Drug Detox, Drug Rehab, Opiates, Prescription Drugs, Stimulants, Valium, Xanax

Detoxification is defined by most people as simply just withdrawing from drugs. In a lot of cases, a withdrawal that is medically supervised isn’t necessary and can just be done at home. This is especially true with most stimulants, painkillers and even heroin, although it is often preferred with the latter two to do a more…

Drug Addiction Problems Ruin Millions of UK Families

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

An amazing new study out of England showed that 1 in 5 people have either had a drug addiction problem themselves, within their family, or their circle of friends. That’s in the UK – not including Ireland – which has a population of about 70 million. So, 14 million people in the UK have had direct more…

Don’t Even Bother with Low Success Drug Treatment

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Rehab

I don’t usually watch reality shows, but I have to say that some of the legal/police type shows that take on social issues can be very insightful. Recently, when discussing the problem of drug addiction, someone on TV asked ‘Why don’t they just burn all the poppy fields?” The response – “Because there has to be more…

Studies Show Addiction Help Works

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Rehab

Every once in a while I get a comment from someone who tells me drug rehab doesn’t work. I don’t know what kind of addiction help they’re actually getting in the facilities they’ve been to, but there are studies galore showing otherwise. The latest was published in the Scientific American. It’s a review of several studies more…

One in Six Kids Use Medicine As Recreational Drugs

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Drug Rehab, Prescription Drugs, Young People

The new National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) monitoring the future survey was released yesterday. It’s a survey of kids in grades 8, 10 & 12 about their drug use. I don’t know how many kids who were asked if they take drugs denied it, but over 15% said they’ve abused prescription and over-the-counter drugs. more…
