Saturday Reporting 📰 🔬 According to @cdcglobal Drug overdose is the leading cause of unintentional injury death in the United States, and higher rates of #opioid related deaths have been recorded in rural areas. A new analysis in this week’s MMWR finds that patients in the most rural counties had an 87% greater chance of receiving an opioid #prescription compared to patients in large metropolitan areas, highlighting the need for intervention programs tailored to rural communities. ____ ____________ What are your thoughts on the matter?

Sometimes we take on to much to soon. In the process of getting sober we start to feel better and think it's time to take on the world. Yes, we have responsibilities but until we are truly ready to take them on it will only be a matter of time before we neglect them again. #addiction #recovertogether #behavioralhealth #opioid #opioidepidemic #addictionisreal #recoveryispossible #addictionrecovery #substanceabuse #recoveryadvocate #americafightingsubstanceabuse #onedayatatime #youareworthit #loveyourself #innerpiece #mindfulness #recovery #recoveringaddict #sober #anxiety #depression #healing #alanon #naranon #odaat #hopedealer

When I was in active addiction I remember thinking I'm not at a point where I need help thats for people that have something wrong with them. I would think that I didn't need help for any problems inside of me I just enjoyed getting high and it went on for to long. It wasn't until I almost lost my life for that stuff that I realized it doesn't matter if it's because I just want to get high or there's more going on internally, I just needed to stop and accept someone's help to do it. It did not matter if I was sick or sick of waking up sick, I qualified. Thankful for everyone who had a hand it making my sobriety possible. #addiction #recovertogether #behavioralhealth #opioid #opioidepidemic #addictionisreal #recoveryispossible #addictionrecovery #substanceabuse #recoveryadvocate #americafightingsubstanceabuse #onedayatatime #youareworthit #loveyourself #innerpiece #mindfulness #recovery #recoveringaddict #sober #anxiety #depression #healing #alanon #naranon #odaat #hopedealer

Hello Saturday! It’s tough giving counsel to committed alcoholics and suicidal souls lost in the faux comfort of addiction. As someone cured of the dreaded diseases of (alcoholism and the mental illness that goes with it) I’m exhausted. I hate when the Spirit that resides in the bottle. Such a huge fight on the regular to stand strong with compassion and renewed purpose I must pray daily. With the current times being what they are ... it’s more tempting to escape. And the war is getting more intensified. The altered intensity of the holiday season is now the norm. And people ( a lot of people are suffering) Sad to say but it feels like the ones who act out on the regular are the lucky ones. At least their cries for help can be heard and their wounds attended to. But those that suffer in silence are the hardest to reach. This is why it’s good to make a loud noise of hope through art , music and fellowship. It’s like the scene from Titanic where the people in the life boats ( the kind ones ) pull out the flashlights and gently steer the oars through the water blowing whistles and clanging pots and pans for survivors. And the pain-my God - it’s like being an exorcist. The pain , disappointment , rage and often violent defense over sickness from the addict can be chilling. The deceit lies and manipulations , name calling shaming etc is very much like a scene from a real live demonic possession film. People are confounded by my missions of Hope unity Recovery and Christ energy as healing power. The community I used to claim so wholeheartedly ( LGBTQ) has openly expressed at times disdain for my efforts. Making cruel comments as we often due when feeling uncomfortable about being bigoted. Bigoted against the change from self centered ego and cutting sarcasm to one of self reflection , kindness and expanded awareness through selfless kindness to others. I’m tired but not defeated. Thank you to all of you for your kindness and support. You’ll never know how much it has helped. I appreciate you. If you’re suffering from addiction, depression and suicidal thoughts- there are those of us who care. We want you to know that some of us have survived the abyss.

TONIGHT on @NBCNightlyNews: @tvkatesnow reports on children whose moms used opioids and were born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome -- and the lifelong health problems they could face. .

As efforts intensify to blunt the ongoing #opioid crisis, a new study finds that increased marketing of the addictive #painkillers to #physicians resulted in more prescribing and, subsequently, more deaths from overdose. Interestingly, industry influence over physicians was greater based on the number of interactions, not the amount of money paid for speaking or the value of freebies, such as meals. Between August 2013 and December 2015, drug makers made nearly 435,000 payments totaling $39.7 million to 67,500 doctors in 2,200 counties across the U.S. The payments were for meals, travel costs, speaking and consulting, but not research. And the data showed that the more marketing directed at physicians in a given county, the higher the number of overdoses, regardless of the money spent. Specifically, in a county of 100,000 people, three additional payments to physicians were linked to 18 percent more prescription opioid deaths, according to the study, which was published Friday in JAMA Network Open. And one author, Dr. Scott Hadland, a pediatrician and adolescent addiction specialist at the Boston Medical Center, noted previous research found more than 9 of every 10 marketing interactions with a doctor was for a meal, indicating drug makers spent relatively little money to win their attention. The latest findings “suggest what matters is not so much the high value of payments to a few doctors, but the low value of payments to many doctors, for such things as meals,” said Dr. Magdalena Cerda, an associate professor of population health at the NYU School of Medicine. “The number of interactions rather than the amount the #doctors are paid” contribute to prescribing and deaths. #news #thatsinthebowl Source: Stat News

Opioids...This is why it’s so important to consult with a Board-Certified Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Physician regarding your chronic pain medications. We partner with our patients, focusing on rehabilitation! * * * #physicalmedicine #physicalmedicineandrehabilitation #opioid #opioidcrisis #opioidaddiction #rehabilitation #chronicpain #doctorsoflg

Androgens and opioids for pain: . "There is evidence that the experience of pain itself may be associated with hypogonadism, independent of opioid use. Endogenous opiates play a major role in regulation of gonadotropins, through a tonic inhibitory control. Endogenous opioids such as B-endorphin modulate GnRH (gonadotropin releasing hormone) pulse amplitude and frequency by presynaptic inhibition of GnRH terminals in the median eminence and interaction with adrenergic neurotransmission, respectively. It is not well established if increased sensitivity to pain is caused by low testosterone or alternatively is due to pain mediators inhibiting the production of androgens." . 1.

📷: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:JIP Did you know that many public places are now installing fluorescent blue lights in their bathrooms to discourage I.V. drug users by making the process of injecting into superficial veins more difficult? This speaks to the huge opioid crisis I alluded to earlier this week on our Facebook page. Public safety officials are studying the issues related to drug use in bathrooms, including proposing stocking Naloxone and sterile water in the stalls. They are also looking at improving the way a person might be extricated from a bathroom stall, regardless of the reason for the distress. One suggestion is to ensure the bathroom door swings out, in case the person in distress has slumped forward and toward the door. Safety officials also recommend that the door would be easy to unlock from the outside - this is where we truly believe #stallrescuetool® can help.

Did you know The National Safety Council recently discovered American's are more likely to die of an opioid overdose than in a car accident? #nationalsafetycouncil #opioid  #opioidcrisis #foxnews #caraccident #safety #knoweldge #learn #americans #foxandfriends #statistics #fatal #findsolutions #problemsolving  #prescriptions

Today a patient of mine told me he's been trying to get a friend of his, who is facing lumbar fusion #surgery, to come and see me so I can help him avoid surgery. Unfortunately, this friend had a bad experience with another #chiropractor in the past, and is now hesitant to see me. The kicker? This friend has already been taking #oxycontin for 3 years! Now this friend is risking #opioid dependency, increased risk of more #pain (aka opioid-induced hyperalgesia), serious spinal surgery and its potential complications, and increased risk of death, all because of one bad experience with another provider. 🙁 If you think this sounds melodramatic, I'm afraid you're simply not paying attention. Do not accept the risks of opioids/other drugs or surgery for spinal issues without consulting a corrective Chiropractor to see what can be done to correct the problem conservatively. You could be saving yourself a world of hurt. If you need a referral to a great DC, please let me know, I'd love to help you!

Fact: In America, it’s now statistically more likely for someone to die of an opioid overdose than a car accident . . •• Another fact: The opioid crisis is one of the reasons Complete Body Daily exists today.

Just like most of you reading this, I also know many people that have died from addiction. It's much easier hearing all the statistics on overdose deaths for each year when one of our loved ones didn't contribute to that number, but the fact is this. Every year that number rises and the odds of it being you or someone you know are that much greater. To put it bluntly if you don't accept help you will live a life that doesn't feel worth living or you die! It's sounds insensitive I know but there is good news.

Please Doctor Freeman Bless my page with your Profound Glorious Unmatched Present .... #mood #motivation #motto Do what’s good and important until the last breath leaves your body! Salute Queen Mother! Dr. Melissa Freeman has been a doctor for more than 60 years. At age 92, she splits her time between a private practice she has run for nearly 40 years and a New York City clinic treating people who are addicted to #opioid #drugs like heroin and #oxycodone. “You do what you have to do. You have to move on,” Freeman told “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts about the secret to her longevity. “As long as God gives you life and gives me strength, I'll have to keep doing it, and he has been very, very merciful for me.” Freeman is the granddaughter of a slave who moved to New York City in the late 1800s to start his family after the Emancipation Proclamation. Today, Freeman treats between 150 and 200 patients each year. She sometimes stays at her practice as late as 9 p.m. to treat her patients, who range in age from 20 to 100. Freeman, who practices internal medicine, typically starts her day working in the #drugclinic. She then travels by #subway to her private practice in #harlem. She was pushed to excel in academics by her grandfather (born a slave) and her father.#granddaughterofslaves #methadone #medicine #1850s #91yearsold #manhattan #nyc #healthcare #fostercare
