Posted under Addiction Help, Steroids

Several years ago a very smart guy I knew told me to always be polite to a police officer, especially if he has a thick neck and big shoulders, because he is probably on steroids and almost anything will set him off. I guess what he said was true because now Edward F. Davis, Boston’s more…

Shouldn’t the NFL be getting football players who are addicted to OxyContin or painkillers the addiction help they need?

Baseball should really investigate the use of prescription drugs in their sport. If a player can’t perform without Adderall or Ritalin, why isn’t that considered performance enhancing? If he can’t get off the bench without painkillers, shouldn’t that considered performance enhancing? To make matters worse, these athletes are going to become, or already are, dependent more…

Santa Cruz, California is essentially a beach town: if you had been there you would get the idea of a low key, low stress, health conscious community.

Addiction Help: Major League Baseball versus the Union

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

The problem with addiction and sports is like spy versus spy in Mad Magazine: nobody is getting ahead. The first step in dealing with drugs and young people is education, but I can’t figure where the player’s union is on the issue of prescription drugs or whether or not players are going to get addiction more…
