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.

CDC Takes on Prescription Drug Overdose with New Social Media Campaign #RxProblem


Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 15, 2015

Waismann Method® Drug Treatment Center Medical Director congratulates the CDC on new social media initiative to combat prescription drug overdose. Michael H. Lowenstein, M.D., a world-renowned expert on opiate dependence and rapid detoxification, believes that the initiative represents a positive force in combating opiate-related overdose, death, and disability.

The Waismann Method® Medical Group lauds the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for its new social media initiative to raise awareness of prescription drug abuse in the United States. As international leaders in opiate addiction, detox, and treatment for nearly two decades, Waismann Method® experts are optimistic that the social media campaign will successfully reduce stigma associated with opiate addiction, encourage affected individuals to seek treatment and reduce the epidemic levels of prescription drug abuse, overdose and deaths among across society, including but not limited to: youth, college students and elderly.

Announced at the fourth annual National RX Drug Abuse Summit in Atlanta, the CDC campaign will run through May 15. Entitled “When the Prescription Becomes the Problem,” the social media initiative urges people to write a six-word story or message, create an original video, or post a picture about their experiences with prescription drug abuse. Messages will be posted on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter using the hashtag #RxProblem. In solidarity with the CDC initiative, the Waismann Method® Medical Group is calling on physicians, mental health professionals, and all those impacted by prescription drug abuse to use the #RxProblem hashtag to share their stories on social media.

“One of the largest barriers to treatment is the misunderstanding and stigma attached to opiate dependence,” said Dr. Michael Lowenstein, Medical Director of the Waismann Method®. “With more than 16,000 people dying from prescription drug overdose in 2013, the CDC social media initiative is an important move in bringing these issues into the public eye. We need to engage individuals, their families, and the entire community to combat opiate dependence and encourage those struggling with prescription drug abuse to seek treatment. This social media campaign is particularly important for reaching our nation’s young people, who are disproportionately affected by drug addiction.”

The Waismann Method Medical® Group pledges to continue combating opiate dependence and encourages the CDC to keep creating innovative solutions to the substance abuse problems facing the nation.

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


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.

Prescription drugs, when taken under medical supervision, help the detox process. Some include Buprenorphine, Librium, Methadone, and Naltrexone.

Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) April 14, 2015

One of the drug and alcohol treatment centers in Baltimore is taking the initiative to provide victims of substance use disorders with the tools to help encourage themselves to enroll into immediate drug and alcohol addiction treatment programs, designed specifically to address their unique circumstances of addiction. Drug Rehab Baltimore has launched http://www.drugrehabbaltimore.net/ with the intent to guide victims with untreated substance use disorders to the proper treatment facility before they become victims of accidental overdose.

“We’re trying to give people the initial tools they need to take control of addiction. Many believe addiction is caused by a lack of character, or moral failing- that’s the stigma preventing people from getting the help they need. And it’s not true.” A medical associate from the drug and alcohol rehab center said, “Our website is designed to help victims of addiction, or family members of someone with an addiction, to identify the signs of the disease and get the help they need to overcome the disease before the unspeakable happens.”

Drug Rehab Baltimore helps patients across Maryland recover from the debilitating disease of addiction, and provides patients with the recovery tools they need to stave off relapse. During treatment, patients work extensively with their addiction therapists to develop strategies to identify addictive behaviors, and discover the underlying roots of addiction. Drug Rehab Baltimore employs cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, and group therapy to help patients work through the multiple stages and intricacies of addiction.

Exhausting every available resource available, the addiction specialists help patients address each known avenue which could cause a devastating relapse during, or after drug and alcohol rehab. Drug Rehab Baltimore puts an emphasis on family therapy to help patients mend the bonds which may have been damaged during the course of addiction, and establish healthy, functioning relationships between patients and their loved ones, so they always have the family support they need to overcome the mental and physical disease of addiction.

Drug Rehab Baltimore provides the peak of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services within the safety of their 24 hour medically monitored, and secured treatment facility in Baltimore. The addiction treatment center implores residents from the entire state to take advantage of their 100% tuition financing options; the center accepts most major insurances, and offers flexible treatment plans for those paying out of pocket. Patients can expect a full spectrum of treatment beginning with inpatient medical detox, inpatient and outpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

Teen Mom Star Suspected to Have Out of Control Drug Problems

(PRWEB) October 30, 2014

As reported by the International Business Times in the article ‘Teen Mom 2′ Star Leah Calvert Allegedly Abusing Drugs, Dealer Says She Has Been Using “For Years”: Report (10/22), one of the well known stars of the MTV reality show, Teen Mom 2, is under fire for using drugs despite the fact that she publicly denied it on an aired reunion. Leah Calvert’s supposed drug dealer has alleged that she has been using illegal drugs for years and cited her as a person who frequently abuses drugs. According to the dealer, Calvert would sometimes pick up 30 to 40 pills from him, sometimes spending up to $ 1,000 per week. The pills have been identified as Percocet, Lortab, Vicodin, and Oxycodone. Additionally, is has been reported that Calvert now uses a middle man to get the drugs for her since she has been starring on the show.

According to Calvert, whom family members have reported seeing taking large quantities of pills at a time, the pills are used for a back pain problem that she developed after giving birth to one of her daughters. Her family claims that she takes the pills due to pains of withdrawal, not from her back. According to Calvert’s first husband, he is in the process of trying to gain primary custody of both of her children. He has stated that he is only acting in the good interest of the kids. Calvert has not yet said anything of her newest allegations.

Drug Enforcement Agency Taking a Stand Against Hydrocodone

(PRWEB) August 29, 2014

According to an L.A. Time published article, entitled DEA Tightens Controls on Hydrocodone Painkiller Drugs (8/21), there is going to be a new stance on Hydrocodone abuse taken by the DEA. Drugs that are made with Hydrocodone, such as Vicodin, are to be named Schedule II drugs within 45 days, which marks them as likely to cause harm and become abused by users. Other drugs considered Schedule II include Fentanyl and OxyContin. This means that pharmacies and patients will likely see stricter policies when it comes to filling and refilling these scripts, and when it comes to storage and handling of them as well. This is thought to be a step in the right direction because Hydrocodone is one of the most commonly prescribed painkillers on the market and it is also one of the most commonly abused. In fact, it has been found that these pills are responsible for more deaths in the United States annually than heroin and cocaine combined.

For Californians, this could be a precursor measure taken towards reducing prescription drug abuse, as Governor Jerry Brown plans to have Proposition 46 on this fall’s ballot, which would require that any physician, prior to prescribing drugs like Vicodin, check the state’s prescription monitoring program to help reduce the likelihood that a patient is abusing these drugs. The goal of this measure is to help further reduce the number of individuals that become addicted to prescription painkillers and to help decrease the death toll that is attributed to these serious drugs.

Whether someone suffering from a alcohol dependency or any other drug, it is highly important to seek the professional counseling and assistance found at a qualified detox center such as Harbor Village. A 24/7 medically supervised facility, Harbor Village allows each client to receive private drug rehab in a luxury, state-of-the art environment. Located in South Florida, clients are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a suite with satellite television, 30,000 square feet of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, Internet and NetFlix access, nutritious, gourmet dining, private limo pickup and transportation to anywhere in Florida and a results proven plan for recovery.

New Street Drug Found to be Much More Powerful Than Heroin

USA (PRWEB) August 31, 2014

According to an article posted in Medical News Today (8/21), entitled Emerging Street Drug Fifteen Times Stronger than Heroin, a new opiate has begun to hit the streets of America which is fifteen times more potent than heroin. Known as acetyl fentanyl, this opiate is a non-medical use drug that has been linked to many overdoses and emergency room visits among opiate addicts because it is much more serious than other drugs. While an individual might demonstrate the signs of a heroin overdose, they (many without even knowing) may have been intravenously taking acetyl fentanyl. This is particularly dangerous because the dosage of naloxone is much higher for those who have overdosed on acetyl fentanyl versus heroin, which means that emergency room physicians may not be treating some overdose patients with enough naloxone to treat an acetyl fentanyl overdose.

Interestingly enough, it has been found that many heroin users themselves are unaware that they are receiving or injecting themselves with acetyl fentanyl, which makes overdosing on this drug even more risky for users. According to the article, acetyl fentanyl legality falls into a grey area, when it is packaged with a “not for human consumption” label it is technically considered legal, which makes access to it much easier for users and dealers. Based on this article, it is important for additional medical research to be conducted in order to help medical professionals identify these types of overdoses and develop better means to help the individuals they see to survive.
