Once it was cocaine, speed or heroin, but now the fashion is for legal pills. News of overdose of prescription tablets shed light on a startling new trend - misuse of over the counter pills now kills more people around the world (starting with America) than illegal drugs.

 

The most commonly abused prescription medications fall into three categories:

• Opiate-based painkillers (OxyContin and Percocet)

• Central nervous system depressants prescribed for anxiety and sleep disorders (Valium and Xanax)

• Stimulants, used to treat attention deficit disorders (Ritalin and Adderall).

In these three categories, the pharmaceutical industry has provided substitutes for just about every illegal narcotic available.

Methylphenidate, the active chemical in Ritalin, targets the brain the same way as cocaine. Antidepressants can act as serotonin boosting (uppers).

OxyContin, an extremely powerful painkiller developed for cancer patients, became known as legal heroin (also easier to get).

Such mishandled drugs now kill tens of thousands of people each year, nearly twice as many as 10 years ago.

If you or your loved one is abusing these drugs, get help before it is too late. Call us now for an assessment.

What is the Objective of an Intervention

An intervention is a deliberate process by which change is introduced into peoples' thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

A formal intervention, like we are discussing here, usually involves several people preparing themselves, approaching a person involved in some self-destructive behavior, and talking to the person in a clear and respectful way about the behavior in question with the immediate objectives being for the person to listen and to accept help.

Although the intervention process has been formalized, the idea is not new. Thinking back, most of us can remember a time when someone or something - a teacher, friend, or set of circumstances impressed us in a seminal way which altered how we understood ourselves and changed our perspective. Moments like these constitute turning points where new vistas open allowing us to see things differently and to recognize opportunities we did not know existed before.

The overall objective of an intervention is to begin to relieve the suffering caused by a self-destructive behavior - the suffering of the person engaged in it and the suffering of family and friends.

Don't waste any more time; contact us today, to get the professional help that you need.
