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…

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…

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.

Illegal Drugs Available by Prescription? Prescription for Disaster.

Posted under Addiction Help, Cocaine, Heroin, Prescription Drugs

One of the MPs (Members of Parliament) in England is suggesting that the war on heroin and cocaine – on drug dealers – be won by making heroin and cocaine available by prescription from doctors. It is hoped that the dealers won’t be able to stay in business and, consequently, the drug scene will cool 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…

Hot Topic: Prescription Drug Abuse

Posted under Addiction Help, Prescription Drugs

In going through the news headlines on a daily basis, I see a lot of stories that have to do with illegal drug activity, underage drinking, mephedrone being banned in the UK, overdose deaths by Hollywood stars, etc, etc. I repeat – this is daily (sometimes hourly) news! But, I have to say that the more…

Lindsay Lohan’s Troubled Life – Rehab Needed Desperately!

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Prescription Drugs

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.

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

Posted under Addiction Help, Florida, Oxycodone, Percocet, Prescription Drugs

The Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s office has recently stated that “prescription drug abuse has become more fatal than abuse of illegal street drugs”. The top two drugs that people overdose on in Tampa, FL are Oxycodone (which can be formulated as Percocet and OxyContin) and Methadone used to “treat” heroin addiction and for chronic pain. more…

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…

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…

“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…

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…

Obama's Health Care Plan Should Address Prescription Drug Abuse

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…

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…

Addiction Help: How to Talk to Your Kids About Drugs

Posted under Adderall, Addiction Help, Cocaine, Drug Addiction, Heroin, Methamphetamine, Painkillers, Prescription Drugs, Ritalin, Tranquilizers, Young People

Every day I see articles telling parents to discuss drugs with their children if they want them to stay drug-free. Statistics show that kids whose parents talk to them about drugs are 50% less like to take them. But often parents don’t know what to say and, because of that, don’t talk to them about more…

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…

Successful Addiction Help Doesn’t Come from Mental Health Professionals

Posted under Addiction Help, Prescription Drugs

I receive emails from a group of people who support non-drug solutions for mental and emotional problems. They’ve recently gotten into the subject of drug addiction and have suggested that psychiatry can help this problem. I beg to differ – and I’ll tell you why. During the years that psychiatry rose to power as the more…
