Heroin Overdoses

You might wonder why heroin overdoses are so common in the United States. Actually, there are many answers to this question. Heroin is an illicit drug that is sold illegally on the streets. Therefore, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has no control over any ingredients that are in the drug. Many dealers mix heroin with other ingredients to increase their profits. Some of these ingredients can even be poisonous.

Naloxone Reduces Opioid Overdose Deaths

Knowing how to administer naloxone reduces opioid overdose deaths. Any person who has a loved one who is taking prescription painkillers (opioids) or who abuses illegal opioids such as heroin or fentanyl needs to know how to administer this life-saving drug. It can literally save the life of your loved one. Seek Addiction Treatment if You are Abusing Opioids If you have a loved one who is abusing opioids (or if you are) seek help from a reputable inpatient addiction treatment facility.

Methamphetamine and Amphetamine

While methamphetamine and amphetamine have similarities, there are many differences between the two substances. Both of these drugs are stimulants which means they both create energy and a loss of appetite. In addition, the user experiences euphoria and a sense of confidence and increased self-esteem. However, methamphetamine is a far more dangerous drug because of its potential for addiction. Furthermore, the effects meth has on a person’s physical and emotional health are much worse than amphetamine’s effects. Contact New Beginnings Drug Rehab Contact New Beginnings […]

Ambien for Insomnia

We have all been there. Sleepless nights spent tossing and turning and trying our best to go to sleep. Worry can cause insomnia, but sometimes we just simply cannot sleep for no apparent reason. But, do we just continue not to sleep well at night or do we ask our doctor to prescribe something for us? What about Ambien for insomnia? Seek Help for Ambien Abuse or Addiction It is not always a good idea to ask your physician to prescribe Ambien for insomnia. However, […]

Prescription Sleeping Pills for Insomnia

Taking prescription sleeping pills for insomnia has become very controversial in our society today. Sleeping pills should only be taken on a short-term basis. They can be highly addictive and have dangerous side effects. Individuals who take sleeping pills for a prolonged period can very easily become dependent on them. They may not be able to fall asleep or stay asleep without them, even when they are taken as prescribed. Most sleeping pills are classified as “sedative hypnotics.” Seek Help for Prescription Sleeping Pill Abuse or […]

Opiate Epidemic - Opiate Drugs

Sounds scary, doesn’t it? Today, a third of all Americans are obese and another one-third are overweight, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This epidemic may be due to the way food products are designed. They are designed to create opiate-like addictions that act upon the brain in the same way opiate drugs like morphine or heroin do. In 2003, Professor John Banzhaf drew parallels between food manufacturers’ practices and techniques used by cigarette companies to deny culpability for making tobacco […]

Curb Opioid Withdrawal Symptoms

Addiction to opioids is almost becoming common in the United States today. Furthermore, with the opioid epidemic our country has been going through for decades now, it seems people don’t think that much about someone with opioid addiction. That is unless the person with the addiction is either you or someone you love. The question is, can buprenorphine curb opioid withdrawal symptoms? Seek Help for Addiction to Opioids If you are abusing or addicted to opioids, seek help from an inpatient addiction treatment facility. Don’t […]

Dangers of Ketamine

If you have not yet heard of Ketamine, chances are you soon will. Whether you are a young person or a parent, you need to be aware of this increasingly popular – and potentially deadly – club drug.  One of the hidden dangers of Ketamine is that it has a legitimate use. That can make it even more difficult for law enforcement to fight. Veterinarians use Ketamine as an anesthetic in veterinary medicine. Many of them routinely stock it. That has made veterinary practices the […]

Staging an Intervention

If you seem to have tried everything to get your addicted loved one to go to rehab for treatment and nothing has worked, maybe it is time for you to try staging an intervention. Staging an intervention might be your last attempt at getting your loved one to see that they indeed do need professional help for their addiction. When a family member has an addiction to drugs or alcohol, it affects the entire family in many ways. Is it possible that you are enabling […]

Addicted and Pregnant

With the opioid crisis raging across states and media headlines in the US, public awareness of drug abuse and addiction has rarely, if ever, been higher. This means that more is being done now to prevent future addiction and to provide more accessible, and affordable treatment options for those who are already addicted than ever before. Despite these efforts, the numbers of people with drug abuse, or addiction problems in the US continue to rise. Clearly, more must be done. There are even more and […]
