Counseling in Addiction

You may be wondering why counseling, is always recommended when seeking help with a substance use disorder. Below, I’ve outlined three primary ways in which counseling helps those on the path toward recovery...

Where Is the Nearest Methadone Clinic in Boston, MA?

Opiate addiction is a problem which many times starts in a very benign way i.e. regular use of prescription painkillers. Like illicit drugs, but legal prescription drugs can lead to addiction and dependence if used longer and especially in larger amounts

What is Relapse?

When it comes to categories, The Academy Awards has nothing on Medicine.  We have syndromes, isms, conditions, contusions, disorders, fetishes, neuroses, fractures, thromboses, and of course diseases-just to ...

Drug of Choice!

I am a baseball fan.  However, I have become more and more discouraged by the pace of play. Games are way too long.  The culprits are players taking far too much time getting in and out of the batter's box between pitches. One of my favorite player's--Brett Gardner.....

Job in Addiction!

Right back to work.  That's my answer to the question of what a substance-dependent recoveree should do following the first stage of treatment--medical detoxification.  Of course, if that bridge has been blown, or partially damaged, I would still favor work.  As in the work to obtain work, that is....

Fantasy of Moderation!

BEST ANSWER? THE QUESTION  If you're reading this recovery column on a regular basis, you may have inferred a bias I maintain against prevailing treatment doctrine.  Yes, I don't trust "evidenced-based treatment". On that note, allow me to opine on how someone comes to understand....

With more shingles being hanged than coats at an Early Bird dinner in February, such folks warrant, I think, a bit of vetting. Historically, this professional handle....

Do Resuscitate

Do not resuscitate. Gratefully, in the realm of drug addiction, we have ignored that order with the introduction of Narcan. Hundreds of thousands of literally blue in the skin addicts have lived to fight another day, their deadly overdose postponed with one spray of this amazing medication.

Alcohol Allergy

There's an old joke that's not very funny in real time."I have an allergy to alcohol and drugs," someone says. "Last night, I broke out in handcuffs."Not hives, mind you. Or a sneezing fit. Definitely not anaphylactic shock.In fact, the symptoms of active substance use disorder (i.e., addiction) are more likely the appearances of people you otherwise would never meet...

Pearl Harbor

So, with the anniversary of Pearl Harbor fast approaching, let's address the question on everybody's mind: What did the event have to do with modern day alcohol and drug disorder treatment? Well, before you dismiss this notion as crazy, allow me to introduce the primary link: Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.
