How To Educate Your Kids on Drugs and Keep Them Safe

Posted under Addiction Help, Drug Addiction, Hydrocodone, Methamphetamine, Oxycodone, OxyContin, Prescription Drugs, Vicodin, Young People

Studies have shown that kids whose parents talk to them about drugs are 50 percent less likely to take them. But for talking to work, you have to say the right things. What do they need to know? Whether they’re pre-teens, teens, or young adults, they all need the same information.

Unfortunately, simply telling your kids that drugs are bad for you isn’t going to work. Telling them that taking drugs is morally wrong, sinful, can get them into trouble, wind them up in jail, and so on and so on – all the hundreds of general things parents could say to their kids – also don’t work.

We just read a story in the news that reported a REALLY strange and depressing statistic. Something like 30 percent of female meth addicts are risking their lives, physically and even legally, by abusing one of the worst illegal drugs ever invented to achieve something called “body image”.

Heroin Overdoses Lives Can be Saved

Posted under Benzodiazepines, Cocaine, Drug Rehab, Heroin, Hydrocodone, Methadone, Methamphetamine, Oxycodone

When someone overdoses on heroin or similar drugs (called opioids) and doesn’t receive immediate treatment, they can stop breathing and die rather quickly. But a new drug could save the life of someone you care about.

We frequently hear about these overdose tragedies on the news – actors, musicians, all sorts of celebrities, not to mention college and high school kids, housewives, professionals, and so on – no one is immune.

Unfortunately, most of the time an opioid overdose means there’s very little anyone can do to save that victim’s life. Rescue people might be it, but there is virtually no chance they’ll be able to do anything about it. That is, unless more…
