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.

Posted under Addiction Help, Darvon, Drug Addiction, Hydrocodone, Painkillers, Percocet, Percodan, Prescription Drugs

OxyContin, hydrocodone, Percocet, Vicodin, Percodan and all the other addictive painkillers get so much attention these days that we never even hear Darvon mentioned. But 20 million prescriptions are written for it every year, despite the horror stories about addiction (and suicides!) and the drug’s apparent lack of effectiveness. The drug now includes acetaminophin  (the equivalent of more…

Will Legalizing Drugs Make the Neglectful Parent Any Less Stoned?

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Prescription Drugs

A recent letter to the editor of the Empire Tribune is, once again, advocating legalization of drugs. He says prohibition of drugs, not the drugs themselves, are responsible for our drug problem. He references Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, so may be involved in law enforcement himself. I can well imagine the frustration of law enforcement more…

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

If anyone’s wondering how the great America could have possibly gotten itself into the current mess, you might have a look at the amount of pharmaceutical drugs being taken.

Make 2009 Your Year to Get Rid of Pain Without Painkillers

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

The FDA is really between a rock and a hard place. They’re criticized for approving drugs too quickly, and criticized if they approve them too slowly. The current issue is Remoxy – a painkiller similar to OxyContin but which can’t be abused. Well, it can be abused: someone can take too much of it, take more…

Are we making progress in colleges? Several studies have verified that more college kids are using prescription drugs than ever before. And they’re very easy to get.

Does Happy Hour Contribute to Alcohol Addiction?

Posted under Addiction Help, Alcohol, Drug Addiction, Prescription Drugs

I just read an article about banning happy hour in England. They’re trying to cut down on binge drinking. They started with not allowing pubs to be open 24 hours a day, now they’re cutting out the time when people can traditionally get their drinks two for one or a lot cheaper than at other more…

Okay, so there are a lot of people out there who depend on methadone as a way to get through life. People who just can’t shake their addiction to opiates no matter how many times they go through various forms of drug rehab – if I’d tried drug rehab 17 times, I guess I’d consider more…

Which Prescription Drugs are Killing Us?

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Fentanyl, Hydrocodone, Morphine, Oxycodone, Painkillers, Prescription Drugs

China’s getting some pretty bad press these days. A few days ago I found out that kids are dying from chocolate – including Halloween candies – made with a milk powder containing an industrial chemical called melamine. And in today’s news, about this quarter’s increase in prescription drug deaths and injuries (4,825 deaths and 21,000 more…

Stimulants Drive Need for Addiction Help

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Prescription Drugs, Ritalin, Steroids, Stimulants

Some time ago I had an allergic reaction to something I ate and my face got so badly swollen you could barely see my eyes. After a couple of days my doctor put me on steroids to get the swelling down before my face exploded. They worked, but they also had other rather intense effects in that more…

Another journalist jumps on the prescription drug addiction bandwagon – this time it’s the Orion, from Cal State University.

Your unused medication may be causing illness, and worse, for yourself and others.
