Philadelphia PA Drug Detox Center Announces No Charge Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Addiction Help


PHILADELPHIA, PA (PRWEB) October 04, 2013

Medical Drug Detox Center is glad to announce that free drug and alcohol detoxification support is available in Philadelphia.

Detoxification from drugs and alcohol can take place whenever an individual makes up his or her mind that they have had enough. It is a process where actually using substances stops and the body goes through a period of adjustment. This sudden stoppage affects the physical aspects as if a jolt or shock to the body’s internal system brings an incredible sense of pain and withdrawal to a person.

Substance abuse problems affects people’s lives. Alcoholism and drug addiction does infiltrate the body, mind and spirit. Other drugs like Suboxone, oxycontin, heroin, Klonopin, and cocaine – when taken beyond “normal” levels – cause destruction in peoples’ lives.

Drug addicts who might use opiates and alcoholics deep into their addiction will go to any lengths and neighborhoods for their “fix.” Making sure adults and adolescents know there are different life choices is important.

There are prescription drugs to help the detox process flow better. Some include Ativan, Buprenorphine, Librium, Methadone, Valium, and Naltrexone.

When people attempt to detox from drugs and alcohol on their own, the results are not always successful. Getting the proper help and support for gaining and maintaining long-term sobriety can turn lives around. People discover that recovery is an easier, softer way after going through detox.

Also, there seems to be a misunderstanding in some circles that reaching out for help is a sign of weakness. It is not. It is a source of strength and shows that an individual is ready to leave his or her substance abuse-filled life behind.

Houston TX Drug Detox Center Announces No Charge Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Addiction Help


HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) October 04, 2013

Medical Drug Detox Center is pleased to announce that free drug and alcohol detoxification support is now available in Houston.

Substance abuse problems can turn ordinary people’s lives upside down. Alcoholism is a horrid disease that affects the body, mind and spirit. Suboxone, oxycontin, Klonopin, and cocaine – when taken beyond “normal” levels – destruct whatever kind of lives people have from an emotional and physical standpoint.

Also, the spiritual aspect of a person’s being gets attacked by drugs and alcohol. The intense desire and obsession for drugs and alcohol becomes so overbearing, so heavy, that an individual’s soul becomes weary and tired. When a person hits this level during his or her substance abuse usage, then a decision needs to be made. Either a person turns their lives around, or keeps on traveling that long, lonesome road.

Detoxing from drugs and alcohol takes time, energy, effort and help. It certainly is not done overnight and looks pretty. In fact, it takes a toll on a person. Yet the toll it takes does not equal the one a person who does not go through detox suffers with on a daily, even hourly, basis.

Prescription drugs can help help the detox process flow better. Some include Ativan, Buprenorphine, Librium, Methadone, Valium, and Naltrexone. Again, it is suggested to receive help and it is available at Medical Drug Detox Center.

When people attempt to detox from drugs and alcohol on their own, the results are not always successful. Getting the proper help and support for gaining and maintaining long-term sobriety can turn lives around.

DALLAS, TX (PRWEB) October 08, 2013

Medical Drug Detox Center is announcing that immediate, free drug and alcohol detoxification consultations are now available in Fort Worth, TX.

For anyone in the Fort Worth area that believes getting heavily involved with drugs like barbiturates, Darvon, Demerol, heroin and prescription drugs are a good way to live, then maybe drug detox is a better alternative.

The city was established in 1849 as an Army outpost on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River. Today, Fort Worth – also known as “Cowtown” – still embraces its Western heritage and traditional architecture and design. USS Fort Worth (LCS-3) is the first ship of the United States Navy named after the city.

Fort Worth is home to the Kimbell Art Museum, considered to have one of the best collections in Texas, and housed in what is widely regarded as one of Texas’ foremost works of modern architecture. Also of note are the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Amon Carter Museum, the latter of which houses one of the most extensive collections of American art in the world, in a building designed by Philip Johnson. The city is also home to Texas Christian University, Texas Wesleyan University, Texas A&M University School of Law, and many multinational corporations including Bell Helicopter, Lockheed Martin, American Airlines, Radio Shack, and others.

Detoxing from drugs and alcohol alone is tough. People living in Fort Worth should know that help is available right now.

Marijuana, opiates, oxycontin and benzodiazepine addiction can turn well-functioning individuals into dysfunctional ones over a period of time. Seeking help when recovering from alcoholism is a challenge.

Treatment centers like Burning Tree and Brazos Recovery are among many in the Fort Worth area that, like Medical Drug Detox Center, offer a way out of addiction.

Drug addicts, especially ones using Suboxone, and alcoholics deep into their addiction will go to any lengths for their substance. This is why people living in Fort Worth who want a better way of life should consider drug detox.

Earth Island Institute Announces Lawsuit against SeaWorld Alleging Violations of California False Advertising and Unfair Competition Laws in Treatment of Captive Whales


San Francisco, California (PRWEB) April 13, 2015

The lawsuit, MARC ANDERSON AND ELLEXA CONWAY, plaintiffs v. SEAWORLD PARKS AND ENTERTAINMENT, INC. Civil Case No. CGC-15-54292: was filed on April 13, 2015 in Superior Court of the State of California for the City and County of San Francisco.

The filed Complaint is appended HERE.

The suit was filed by the law firm of Covington and Burling LLP, San Francisco, California office.

Non-profit conservation organization Earth Island Institute and its International Marine Mammal Project is assisting the law firm and plaintiffs in the suit.

The suit alleges that SeaWorld makes and profits off of false and misleading statements concerning the welfare of their captive orcas in violation of both the California False Advertising Law – Cal. Bus. and Prof. Code 17500, et seq. and California Unfair Competition Law – Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code 17200, et seq.

The suit further alleges (court filing, p. 2; line 14):

“SeaWorld’s practices and countless studies demonstrate that SeaWorld’s statements regarding the care and health of their captive orcas are false and misleading. Orcas are large, highly intelligent, and extremely social predators. Yet SeaWorld’s orcas live significantly shorter lives than their wild counterparts; complete dorsal fin collapse is generally quite rare in the wild but extremely common, if not universal, among captive male orcas; and SeaWorld often separates tightly knit orca families, causing psychological harm and leading to maladaptive behaviors. In sum, captivity at SeaWorld harms orcas.”

The suit further alleges that SeaWorld’s marketing efforts conceal its mistreatment of orcas, (court filing, p. 3 ; line 16):

“SeaWorld San Diego’s home page features a prominent photo and link titled “Our Care for Killer Whales.” The link takes visitors to an open letter which states that the lifespans of SeaWorld’s orcas are “equivalent with those in the wild” and that SeaWorld does not separate orca mothers from calves. In another location, SeaWorld’s website misleads consumers into believing that dorsal fin collapse is common among wild male orcas, citing a scholarly paper. On a page titled “Truth about Blackfish,” SeaWorld states that it is “wrong” that “life at SeaWorld is harmful for killer whales.”

(court filing, p. 3; line 23):

“These claims are misleading if not outright lies. Conveyed to purchasers through the website, and disseminated to Plaintiffs and the public at large through promotional materials and emails, SeaWorld’s false statements are misleading to reasonable consumers.”

(Court filing, p. 4; line 3)

“Plaintiffs bring this action to on behalf of themselves and all other similarly situated consumers to halt SeaWorld’s dissemination of false and misleading statements and correct the false and misleading perception created by SeaWorld. Plaintiffs seek injunctive for all consumers who purchased SeaWorld tickets in reliance on SeaWorld’s representations concerning orca welfare.“

Lyceum Books Announces New Publication on Supporting Student Veterans in Higher Education


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 10, 2015

Lyceum Books, Inc., publisher of professional development and educational resources for social work practitioners and educators, announces the publication of Supporting Veterans in Higher Education: A Primer for Administrators, Faculty, and Advisors. The book is edited by Jose E. Coll, United States Marine Corps veteran, director of the Office of Veteran Student Services, and associate professor of social work at Saint Leo University; and Eugenia L. Weiss, California-licensed clinical social worker, licensed psychologist, and clinical associate professor of social work at the University of Southern California.

Coll and Weiss describe this book as “ultimately about promoting social justice (and social action) in terms of combating the public and institutional ambivalence towards the veterans of today.”

This book provides insight into how administrative faculty and staff at institutions of higher education can help student veterans successfully transition from military to civilian life. It explores effective ways of advising student veterans, learning the behavioral health factors that affect academic success, building supportive communities. The authors offer effective strategies to aid colleges and universities in launching initiatives to address the needs of student veterans.

Patrick C. O’Rourke, Lt. Col. United States Army (ret.) and Director of Active Duty and Veteran Affairs at California State University states, “Supporting Veterans in Higher Education…responds to the functional needs of this growing field at the same time that it propels the discussion of veterans’ diversity in the academy. Books such as this transcend decades of silence regarding the effects of war on Americans who later enroll at our educational institutions… I know of no other veteran-related publication so wide-ranging in content and balanced in perspective.”

The authors discuss practices, policies, and programs that implement the Obama administration’s 8 Keys to Success; necessary partnerships such as Outside the Wire and Veterans Integration to Academic Leadership (VITAL), which outline collaborative initiatives between universities and community agencies and the Veterans’ Administration; and case studies that illustrate useful applications of the book’s content regarding veterans affairs.
