Problems of Drug Treatment

Each time someone uses drugs or alcohol, they are essentially poisoning their bodies. This mainly goes unnoticed for the duration of their abuse. Drugs take the person out of what is happening right in front of them and puts all of their attention on the euphoric feeling they get from the substance.

Enabling VS Love

An enabler is defined as a person who encourages negative or self-destructive behavior in another. This is the definition I found on the internet and reading the meaning is hurtful. What parent wants to be referred to as being an enabler to their drug addicted child?

Will 2017 Be the Year to Change?

For those suffering from addiction or connected to someone who is, holidays are a time when life becomes real. Many addicts go through the motions of daily life while hiding their use and keeping things off the radar… at least for the most part.

Many addicts become estranged from their families and friends due to their behavior. Over time the lies, stealing, and other destructive behavior can become too much for the family around them. When the holidays roll around, we understand many of these emotions can resurface.

The Endless cycle of Trying to Quit

The Endless cycle of Trying to Quit “I’m done. I just can’t do it anymore.” While these might sound like the words of someone who is finally ready for treatment, they are quite the opposite. I am giving up on treatment, after five failed attempts. These are my words.

The other side of Benzodiazepines

I remember waking up to the faint sound of Madonna playing on the stereo, shortly followed by screaming and the smell of smoke coming from the car. I couldn’t figure out what was happening but heard one of my friends telling the paramedics he couldn’t move his body or neck.

Secrets of the Suboxone Scam

From an Ex-addict I’m in a swanky hotel room with my doctor. She’s traipsing around barefoot, in a flower-print summer dress while writing me a prescription for ninety tablets of Suboxone.
