Posted in alcoholism, Mental Health, Physical Health - 0 Comments

What do any of us know about drinking? Someone in recovery likely knows more than they’d care to, but for most people, drinking is something done occasionally. A glass of wine with a good meal, a cocktail after work, beers with friends: This is the fun, moderate drinking most people engage in. What’s more, drinking […]


The dangers of alcohol overconsumption

A pounding headache, a racing heartbeat, uncontrollable sweats, body aches and vomiting are some of the common symptoms people endure after a long night of drinking. Hangovers are the worst.

Research shows that nutritional management can help a recovering addict during his or her journey of recovery. Nutritional deficiency during an addiction recovery is a two-edged sword.

The spotlight effect, social anxiety and surviving mistakes

All of us know what it’s like to make a social blunder, whether that blunder involves mispronouncing a word, tripping over our feet or forgetting the name of an acquaintance. Most of us also know what it’s like to lie in bed at night, replaying a years-old mistake and cringing inwardly at our (real or […]

Posted in Drug Abuse - 0 Comments

Researchers at Duke University have found that adolescents with the DRD4-7R genotype are even more likely to engage in antisocial behavior after witnessing alcohol or drug use than adolescents who do not possess the genotype.

“People were telling us they were determined to become sober. They would call a hospital or clinic or treatment center and they would be denied.” This is what Senator Jennifer L. Flanagan said she heard time and again in 2014 during advocacy meetings for insurance coverage of inpatient addiction treatment. Although a heated debate over […]


Mixing wine and marijuana: What could go wrong?

As marijuana legalization gradually spreads across the United States, an interesting thing has started happening to cannabis culture: It’s gotten fancier.
