Teenage Drug and Alcohol Abuse Facts

Posted by Sara Niemiec on Apr 19, 2018 10:00:00 AM

 

Drug and alcohol abuse. It surrounds individuals on a daily basis and unfortunately can be introduced into children's lives at younger ages than we would enjoy. While some children are just reminded it exists, some dabble in the use of drugs or alcohol before they enter middle school or high school. In many high school surveys, many students admitted that they have drank alcohol before the legal age of 21. The problem in today’s society regarding the drinking of alcohol is that the laws restricting it do not do their jobs when it comes to the world’s children. Even though the legal drinking age in the U.S. is 21, young adults will get fake ids, steal liquor from friends or family, or pay individuals old enough to purchase alcohol to get it for them. By teaching children the facts while they are young, we might be able to help reduce this problem.

Many individuals ask, "what is Suboxone?" Suboxone is a drug that is often used for the treatment of opioid addiction. This could be for drugs such as heroin or even over the counter medications such as morphine and oxycodone. Suboxone is combination of two different drugs: buprenorphine (an opioid activator) and naloxone (an opioid antagonist). This combination of opposing forces provides a way for addicts to gradually wean themselves off of their pre-existing addiction while minimizing the effects that full on withdrawal would otherwise trigger.

Posted by Sara Niemiec on Mar 29, 2018 10:00:00 AM

However, a structured, safe and gradual detox at the hands of professional clinicians at an alcohol rehab or clinic needn’t be as frightening as you think. Remember - the patients and residents at the rehab center came in with the same concerns, fears, and worries as you, and they’re okay. Although the journey towards sober living can involve a few uncomfortable days initially, the effects of alcohol withdrawal are rarely as pronounced as people expect. The rewards that follow certainly make it all worthwhile.
