New A Forever Recovery Infographic Reveals Shocking Facts About Benzos (Benzodiazepines)


Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) October 08, 2014

A new infographic from open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program A Forever Recovery is revealing shocking facts about the psychoactive drugs commonly known as Benzos (Benzodiazepines).

As the infographic points out:


Benzos reduces the activity of neurons that cause stress and anxiety
Benzos are variously classified as sedatives, hypnotics, anti-anxiety drugs, anti-convulsants drugs and muscle relaxants
Benzos are typically known by their brand names, which include Xanax, Valium, Ativan, Halcion and Klonopin
Benzos are typically prescribed for anxiety, insomnia, seizures, panic attacks, alcohol withdrawal, and early stages of dementia
Many people are abusing Benzos by using them as tranquilizers
Recent studies have suggested that a person’s risk for Alzheimer’s increases by 50% when Benzos were used for more than 3 months.

“Around the world, dementia affects approximately 36 million people,” commented A Forever Recovery’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “And now that there appears to be a link between Benzos use and increased risk for Alzheimer’s, it’s extremely important for anyone with elderly parents to find out exactly what medication they have been taking, and for how long. If that list includes Benzos, then they should speak with a physician to discuss risks and alternatives.”

New A Forever Recovery Blog Post Looks at Key Facts about the History of Oxycodone


Battle Creek, MI (PRWEB) September 25, 2014

In its latest blog post, A Forever Recovery, an open-ended drug and alcohol treatment program that gets clients off to a great start and gives them a solid foundation in recovery they can believe in, is focusing on key facts about the history of oxycodone.

“While oxycodone was created as a narcotic painkiller to help individuals manage acute post-operational pain, the fact is that millions of people across the country – including many young people – are addicted to this opioid, and don’t realize that the consequences of abuse can be fatal,” commented A Forever Recovery’s Per Wickstrom.

According to the blog post:

Oxycodone is found in a number of prescription medications, including OxyContin, Percocet, Percodan, Combunox, Roxiprin, Roxicodone, Endocet, Endodan and Targiniq ER.
Oxycodone was created by scientists who hailed it as a non-addictive, semi-synthetic substitute for heroin, morphine and opium.
By 1963, Percodan abuse (a combination of oxycodone and aspirin) was cited as the source of 33% of addictions in the State of California.
In 1970, oxycodone was listed as a Schedule II drug in the (then) new Controlled Substances Act. Schedule II drugs, substances or chemicals are defined as drugs with a high potential for abuse, with use potentially leading to severe psychological or physical dependence.
In 1996, OxyContin was introduced as the first pure oxycodone drug
By 1998, OxyContin was responsible for 80% of its maker Perdue’s profits.
Between 1992 and 2006, a survey by the FDA revealed that national admissions for treatment involving opioids spiked from below 40,000 to over 120,000.
A government survey in 2006 across 16 States discovered that more than 50% of addicts admitted to Rehab Facilities were abusing or addicted to oxycodone.
A national survey in 2006 found that 15.6 million Americans aged 12 and older had taken a drug containing oxycodone on a recreational basis, and that 26% of drug users admitted to being addicted to OxyContin.
A 2008 FDA report announced that oxycodone may be more addictive than morphine.
The oxycodone abuse epidemic has led to the emergence of “pill mills” across the country, where unethical doctors prescribe bottle after bottle of pain medication without a proper exam.
To prevent addicts from crushing OxyContin, a new gel formulation was released in 2013. The FDA also removed all crushable OxyContin from sale.

“While the new tamper-proof formulation may prevent some from abusing OxyContin, the fact is that addicts are resourceful and they’ll turn their attention to other opiates – some of which are even more potent and addictive,” added Per Wickstrom. “As concerned individuals, groups and governments work to prevent future addicts, it’s also important for everyone to realize that individuals already addicted need treatment. Addiction never goes away on its own. On the contrary, it gets worse and worse until the addict ends up in jail, the hospital, or the morgue.”
