School Staff Trained in Looking out for Drug Abuse in Young People

USA (PRWEB) November 20, 2014

Dozens of teachers and nurses have been trained on how they should be the first responders to the warning signs of substance abuse in young people. They received perspectives on the damage that addiction can do from nurses, doctors, policemen and victims who have taken heroin in the past.

The event was brought together as education professionals warned that they weren’t being given enough information on the best ways to prevent and tackle drug abuse in the local area. In Bergen County, North Jersey, where the meeting took place, the number of deaths from overdoses has doubled in the past year alone.

There are now hopes that this initiative will be rolled out nationally, with a view to stopping young people from falling into the traps that drug abuse provides.

Parents of those who have died from drug overdoses in the past also warned that many people can be lured into a trap of thinking it would never happen to their children, and then being unsure how to tackle the problem once it becomes a reality.

During shocking speeches, teachers were told how students are forced to get creative in order to store their drugs on school grounds. Water bottles and Coke cans are just some of the receptacles that have been used in the past to stow pills and powders.

One counselor warned: “Our kids are suffering, and not just in high school. I have dealt with kindergartners who have said they are going to hurt themselves.”

The shocking report appeared on NewJersey.com, and the overall message was focused on intervening with suspect cases of adolescent drug abuse as early as possible.

More schools are scheduled to participate in the training sessions throughout the month, making the most of the time that education professionals spend with the children they serve on a daily basis.

Physician-Dispensed Drug Prices in South Carolina Decreased sbout 35%, Yet Remained 3040% Higher Than Pharmacy Prices


Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) November 20, 2014

A new study from the Workers Compensation Research Institute (WCRI) found physician-dispensed drug prices in South Carolina decreased about 35 percent yet remained 30–40 percent higher than pharmacy prices.

“In many states across the country, policymakers are debating whether doctors should be paid significantly more than pharmacies for dispensing the same drug,” said Dr. Richard Victor, WCRI’s executive director. “Policymakers in South Carolina adopted new rules, effective December 19, 2011, which helped to narrow the price difference in post-reform South Carolina.”

The study, Early Impact of South Carolina Reforms on Physician Dispensing, examines the effects of changes to the rules governing reimbursement to South Carolina physicians for prescriptions that they both write and dispense. South Carolina is one of 18 states that have made significant changes to such reimbursement rules in the past 10 years, motivated by concerns about the higher costs of physician dispensing.

Using data covering the time period from 2011 to the first quarter of 2013, the following are among the study’s findings:


Average prices paid for physician-dispensed prescriptions decreased after South Carolina’s rule changes. For most of the top physician-dispensed drugs, the average prices paid per pill decreased by 33–52 percent after the reforms. For example, the price paid for physician-dispensed hydrocodone-acetaminophen (Vicodin®) decreased from $ 1.18 per pill pre-reform in the last quarter of 2011 to $ 0.56 per pill post-reform in the first quarter of 2013, a decrease of 52 percent.

The prices paid to physicians for some common drugs were still higher than pharmacy prices for the same drugs in post-reform South Carolina. For example, ibuprofen (Motrin®) was $ 0.27–$ 0.28 per pill when dispensed at a pharmacy, but $ 0.39–$ 0.41 per pill when dispensed at a physician’s office, a price difference of 42–44 percent.

After the pharmacy fee schedule change in the last quarter of 2011, the frequency of physician dispensing appeared to decrease steadily over the post-reform quarters. The percentage of all prescriptions dispensed by physicians dropped from 23–24 percent in the pre-reform quarters to 13 percent by the last quarter of 2012 and 10 percent by the first quarter of 2013.

Prescriptions for some common drugs with over-the-counter strengths were often written and dispensed by physicians who dispense drugs. This was the case for naproxen sodium (Aleve®) of 220 milligrams. The average price paid to physicians for this drug was between $ 0.21 and $ 0.24 per pill in post-reform South Carolina, but the over-the-counter price for the same drug was $ 0.09 per pill if filled at a local pharmacy.

The data used in this analysis of South Carolina’s pharmacy fee schedule reform came from payors in South Carolina that represented 47 percent of all medical claims in the state workers’ compensation system. The analysis data was constructed so that, for each quarter, prescriptions filled within the quarter for medical claims that had up to two years of maturity were included. On average for each of the calendar quarters, WCRI included 13,910 prescriptions paid that are associated with 3,912 claims in the state. Note that the post-reform results depict the impact of the reform during 15 months after the effective date. WCRI intends to update these results with additional data.

The Cambridge-based WCRI is recognized as a leader in providing high-quality, objective information about public policy issues involving workers’ compensation systems.

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.

Risperdal Lawsuit Claims Contending Males Taking The Antipsychotic Drug Causes Gynecomastia Move Forward With October Meeting Reports Wright & Schulte LLC


Columbus, OH (PRWEB) October 11, 2014

As Risperdal lawsuit claims continue in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, another monthly meeting has been scheduled for parties to discuss the litigation surrounding antipsychotic drugs and the development of male breasts or gynecomastia. According to court records there are nearly 80 Risperdal lawsuit claims pending in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas mass tort program. The court’s calendar shows attorneys for the plaintiffs and defendants are scheduled to meet on October 15, at the Complex Litigation Center in Philadelphia’s City Hall. The Risperdal side-effects complaints were filed on behalf of males who allege that they experienced gynecomastia, which is excessive male breast growth similar to that of a woman after using the antipsychotic drug. The Risperdal side-effect lawsuits purport that Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which manufactures and markets the drug, failed to warn consumers and health care providers about the serious side-effects of taking Risperdal. (In Re: Risperdal Litigation, Case Number 100300296)

Risperdal gynecomastia is a devastating condition that can have far reaching effects on a boy’s social development and quality of life. The attorneys at Wright & Schulte LLC are committed to ensuring that the victims of Risperdal gynecomastia obtain the justice they deserve. To learn more, please contact Wright & Schulte LLC for a free Risperdal lawsuit consultation to ensure you are treated fairly and receive all of the compensation the law allows. Call 1-800-399-0795 or visit http://www.yourlegalhelp.com for more information.

In June, plaintiffs’ attorneys asked Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas Judge Arnold New, who is presiding over the Risperdal litigation, to reconsider his decision of preventing plaintiffs from asking for punitive damages against Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Judge New issued an order on July 18 reaffirming his earlier decision to deny punitive damages to plaintiffs but they can still ask for compensatory damages. The issue of punitive damages arose as a result of Janssen asking Judge New to allow the New Jersey Product Liability Act to apply in the Risperdal litigation because the company is headquartered in New Jersey. The New Jersey Product Liability Act does not allow punitive damages to be awarded against manufacturers of prescription drugs or medical devices if they have received pre-market approval by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). Plaintiffs’ attorneys contend that the defendants marketed Risperdal for uses that were not approved by the FDA and therefore, punitive damages should be allowed. Judge New initially granted Janssen’s motion in an order issued May 2, 2014. (In Re: Risperdal Litigation, Case Number 100300296)

Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., was the subject of a criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for marketing Risperdal for uses that were not approved by the FDA. According to the DOJ, Janssen did not have FDA approval when the company marketed the antipsychotic medication for use in children and adolescents with behavior challenges and the company did not disclose the health risks associated with use of the drug. In November 2013, the DOJ announced that Janssen was charged with a criminal count of misbranding Risperdal and Janssen pleaded guilty to the charge. The company also agreed to pay a $ 400 million criminal fine. The DOJ said Risperdal was not approved for use in children for any purpose until late 2006. Janssen was also under criminal investigation for marketing Risperdal for unapproved use in elderly dementia patients. The DOJ charged Janssen in this case with introducing a misbranded drug into interstate commerce. The company also paid $ 1.25 billion to settle a separate civil case regarding Risperdal. [justice.gov/opa/pr/2013/November/13-ag-1170.html, November 4, 2013] [fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/ucm373499.htm, November 4, 2013]

Risperdal is approved by the FDA as an atypical antipsychotic drug to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability in autistic children and adolescents. An investigation by the Los Angeles Daily News showed children in California’s foster care system have been prescribed psychiatric drugs, including Risperdal, Prozac, and Haldol, to control their behavior, although the medications have not been approved by the FDA use by children. The Los Angeles Daily News said it looked at 10 years of data that begins in 2004. The newspaper’s investigation found that nearly 1 out of every 4 adolescents in California’s foster care system is receiving psychiatric drugs, which is three times the rate for all adolescents nationwide. The newspaper reported that of the thousands of foster children prescribed psychotropic drugs in the last 10 years, nearly 60 percent were prescribed an antipsychotic, which are the highest risk psychotropic drugs. The newspaper further reported that the percentage of foster children who were prescribed two or more psychotropic medications increased from 10.1 percent in 2004 to 12.2 percent in 2013.

Miss USA On Her Recovery From Drug Addiction

USA (PRWEB) November 20, 2014

She had been crowned Miss USA, but this did not stop her from falling susceptible to drug abuse. Tara Conner faced an uphill battle to overcome her addiction, according to WYFF.

She made an inspiring speech to a crowded room to mark the 15th anniversary of Greenville County Drug Court, which aims to offer an alternative to imprisonment for the criminals of South Carolina. It hopes their alternatives – which include counseling – have more of an impact on their future than a jail term would. More than 3,700 people have in the scheme at any one time, and Ms Conner believes it’s a life-changing initiative.

Conner was Miss USA in 2006, and owing to her high profile, she had to fight her addiction in an exceptionally public arena. However, she insists that drug dependency didn’t make her a bad person – just someone who was sick and trying to get better.

She told reporters: “Our past and our mistakes don’t have to define the person we become.”

http://www.wyff4.com/news/former-miss-usa-talks-drug-abuse-recovery-in-the-upstate/29689214 (11/12/2014)

Now an ambassador that tries to help youngsters avoid drugs altogether, activists in the region have hailed her powerful story as a deterrent for those who are considering abuse, and an incentive for addicts who feel they are trapped.

Conner believes it’s all about changing perceptions, as not every alcoholic is somebody who is swigging whiskey out of a paper bag. Miss USA claims that this image is something that’s seared as a stereotype in the minds of many Americans.

Throughout the US, many high-profile stars fall into a trap where they are addicted to drugs or alcohol. But the hope is that they can overcome these demons to resume being a role model to the Americans who see them every day. Tara Conner’s story proves that all of this is possible.

At Harbor Village, clients get a luxury drug addiction facility experience.

New Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog Post Asks: What are the Most Addictive Painkillers?


(PRWEB) April 08, 2014

Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is asking a critically important and timely question in its latest blog post: What are the most additive painkillers?

“Many people still believe that drug abuse and drug addiction only refer to illicit drugs, such as cocaine, heroin and so on,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “However, there is a prescription drug abuse problem happening in our country that is, without question, of epidemic proportions, and affecting people from all walks of like, and of all ages – from children to seniors.”

According to the Best Drug Rehabilitation blog post, opioids remain the most abused prescription painkillers. Opioids relieve pain by minimizing the pain signals in the brain, plus they can create a feeling of euphoria. However, the body requires more and more of the drug to achieve a desired state of physical and emotional wellness, which is what leads to a spiralling path of addiction. Some commonly used – and unfortunately, commonly abused – opioids include (but is not limited to):


Vicodin
Methadone
Dilaudid
Duragesic
Demerol
Percoce
Propoxyphene
Oxymorphone
Oxycodone HCL
Meperidine
Hydromorphone
Bitartrate
Fentanyl
Hydrocodone

Added Per Wickstrom: “Individuals who are addicted or are concerned that they may be heading down that road can get the professional, compassionate help they need through inpatient treatment programs. Their family members and loved ones who desperately want to help an addict can also call a qualified and certified treatment facility to learn how they can be part of the solution.”

The full text of Best Drug Rehabilitation’s latest blog entitled “What are the Most Addictive Painkillers?” is available at http://www.bestdrugrehabilitation.com/blog/addiction/what-are-the-most-addictive-painkillers/

About Best Drug Rehabilitation

Best Drug Rehabilitation offers treatment programs, and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful.

Ultimately, Best Drug Rehabilitation offers recovery geared to the personalized needs of each client, which is an option that makes the chance for long-term success much more likely.
