A Guide to Hand Sanitizers

Around the world, major government health agencies and medical experts have found that the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, is predominantly transmitted through respiratory droplets that are projected through the air, which is why masks have become a major part of preventing the spread of the disease.

As the pandemic spread in early 2020, one of the first reported methods for stopping COVID was to frequently wash your hands. For people who had to be out in public, due to work or caregiving activities, hand sanitizer became a vital secondary solution. However not all hand sanitizers contain alcohol, which is a key component to killing viruses and bacteria. Some hand sanitizers are effective against viruses but not bacteria.

The Derm Review has published a guide to hand sanitizers for everyone who wants to be "in-the-know".

New to this list Great Oaks Recovery Center Logo   The Ultimate Guide to Alcohol Addiction Rehab

Alcohol is a common substance that has been consumed in drinks for most of human history. However, alcohol can become extremely addictive. Alcohol addiction can destroy families, lives, communities and lead to painful suffering and death. Alcoholism, like most addictions, is a gradual process, and there are many signs along the way. When alcohol addiction gets out of hand, someone may need to find an alcohol addiction rehab.

What is an Alcohol Rehab Center? Alcohol rehab centers provide rehabilitation to people suffering from alcohol addiction. It usually includes an alcohol detox center. Detox is the first step to recovery, and alcohol treatment centers are ineffective unless the client has gone through the detox process. An alcohol rehabilitation center provides the individual with everything they need to stop drinking alcohol, detox from the effects, and begin the journey to sobriety free from the harmful effects of their addiction.

  Get Off Methadone and Subutex for Good
Brutal Truths About Methadone Maintenance Therapy

Substance abuse treatments are not one-size-fits-all. Opioid addiction, for example, is one of the most challenging addictions. Many people who stop using opioids take methadone or buprenorphine, commonly known as Subutex.

However, Methadone and Subutex also have a risk of abuse and dependence. Therefore, to become completely free from opioids, you must taper off both methadone and Subutex. Typically, the first step is tapering off methadone onto buprenorphine and then tapering off buprenorphine to being substance-free.

Adderall Abuse Guide

First synthesized in the 1920s, Adderall (dextroamphetamine) was discovered by chemist Gordon Alles while he was attempting a cure for other ailments. While the initial formula wasn't quite the drug it is today, it was an essential building block, and various forms were produced between 1930 and 1970. Originally intended to be used as a mood booster or diet pill, Pharmaceutical executive, Roger Griggs, is responsible for the form of dextroamphetamine that is commonly prescribed today.

Adderall, also known as Concerta, is used to treat mood disorders such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, and narcolepsy. Many chemical variations through the years that you may be more familiar with are: Ritalin, Vyvanse, and Dexedrine. We all know the natural substitutes such as coffee, Caffeine, and various bagged combinations of minerals and herbs you find at the convenience stores. Abuse commonly affects 10.1% of women and 5.3% of men, ages 18 through 25-years gaining access to the drug through a friend or family member with a prescription. Recent studies indicate abuse has increased by over 60% percent. We have various treatments depending on severity, life situations, and such. We can help.

New to this list Green Mountain Treatment Centers   Alcohol Consumption During COVID

During times of stress, people often reach for alcohol. A substance long-relied upon for social relief, celebratory occasions, and for pleasure, it is also used as an escape mechanism to cope with difficult times, tiring days, or distressing situations. This socially accepted, popular way to unwind releases inhibitions and temporarily abates worry and anxiety from the day, week, month, or year. In extreme cases, these drinking patterns increase and evolve in severity, and problems begin to crop up. This is recognized as Alcohol Use Disorder, which wreaks havoc in the drinker's life and for everyone around them.

So, in a year like 2020, faced with the blistering reality of the COVID-19 global pandemic, people are reaching for the bottle more often than not. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Americans have been consuming 14% more alcohol than normal. There is considerable fear of the unknowns surrounding the virus, and it is a time unlike anything we have ever experienced. We don't know when or if things will ever return to normal.

If you or a loved one is experiencing problems with drinking, help is available. While everyone is coping with the current normal in their own way, it isn't necessary to do so alone.

Checking to make sure that you've turned off the stove two or three times is not OCD. Rearranging your bookshelf twice in one week is not OCD. Organizing your closets so that all of your shirts are facing the same direction is not OCD.Using "OCD" as a way to describe these occasional bouts of perfectionism can be potentially damaging to those who experience real OCD.

Did you know that almost half (46.4%) of individuals with PTSD also struggle with some kind of addiction?

Even though 30 million people are affected by PTSD, many do not even realize the harm of post-traumatic stress disorder. Sometimes, an event that occurs within minutes can affect people for the rest of their lives. For example, a car accident, robbery, or natural disaster are time-limited situations. These occur once and only for a short duration, but the trauma may remain with the affected individuals. On the other hand, some experiences happen repeatedly or last for months — even years — at a time. For these situations, the trauma can also remain for prolonged periods, but it may present a different set of risks for the affected individual.

With that in mind, we recently published a guide to treating complex PTSD, which you can read here: Treating Compylex PTSD During Rehab

 Drug and Alcohol Intervention Guide

In a situation involving substance use disorder, planning an intervention may be the best, and safest, option to help someone who is living with an addiction. So, what does intervention mean? An intervention is a strategically planned process of confronting the person who is living with addiction about the consequences of their actions while simultaneously encouraging them to accept help and treatment for their addiction.

While an intercession can be an immensely helpful option in convincing a person that they should seek treatment, it should not be done solely by friends and family members. Without the aid of a specialist, or someone who is equally trained in the process of interventions, an intervention may do more harm than good.

If someone is struggling with addiction, planning an intervention could be the best and safest option to help them. To spread awareness of the problem, we just published our Drug and Alcohol Intervention Guide which provides comprehensive information to the public about this matter.

The Dangers of Mixing Alcohol and Drugs
A Dangerous Combination

Because alcohol is the most widely available mind-altering substance, it is frequently mixed with other drugs. However, mixing alcohol with other drugs can be dangerous.

The risk of overdosing while intoxicated is increased greatly when mixing with alcohol. Alcohol tends to worsen the negative effects of other drugs or reduce their effectiveness. Common causes for overdose include liver failure, severe depression of the central nervous system, blood poisoning, heart failure, and asphyxiation.

Alcohol affects decision making, reaction time, and the senses. Because of this, alcohol-impaired drivers cause almost 30 accidents per day. In fact, alcohol causes nearly 28% of all fatal traffic accidents. A majority of drunk driving accidents occur on the weekends or near holidays. The fine for a DUI can cost up to $6,000.00 in some states and can also result in being charged with a felony. Mixing alcohol, even when not operating a vehicle, can lead to accidental bodily harm caused by uncoordinated movement and lowered reflexes.

New to this list Granite Recovery Center Logo   What To Know About Binge Drinking

Alcohol has been around since ancient times. Its use has been traced back 10,000 years, when it was first consumed for its psychoactive effects. Today, it fuels a billion-dollar industry and is socially accepted almost globally, having become a major part of human recreation and consumption.

While many things about this drug have changed in the last 10,000 years (like flavoring, alcohol content, and most definitely the packaging), some things about it remain the same. It is still a mind-altering substance, can affect the brain both long-term and short-term, and can be addictive. One of the dangerous forms of alcohol use is binge drinking, which is drinking a large amount in a brief period. If a person makes this a habit, this pattern of abuse can eventually result in a serious addiction.

If you are trying to decide if you or a loved one has a binge drinking problem, consider reading this short article. It will help clarify your thoughts.

Made from the poppy plant, Heroin was created to find a non-addictive alternative to opium and morphine — and heroin was once hailed as that wonder drug. It soon proved to be one of the most dangerous and addictive drugs known. Today, heroin is outlawed in the United States and is responsible for over 10,000 drug overdoses a year.

Router-Network.com   When Gaming Becomes A Problem

Today gaming is big business, probably far bigger than you'd even imagine. While we've spent decades seeing advertisements for the latest Hollywood blockbuster or glitzy album by a pop star, the gaming industry has silently been taking over, with it now outperforming the film and music industry combined in certain territories. In 2020, boosted by Covid lockdowns across the globe, the video game industry grew by a massive 9%, raking in $159.3 billion. Long gone is the narrow minded perception that gaming is only for kids or the anti-social. Gamings' first entry to pop-culture was at the video parlors. With the advent of home computers and consoles, there are way too many hours of eyes stuck to the screen. The "damage" to a kids mind has been disproven time and time again, while the real problem is how the industry itself is run, with certain games adding addictive elements to their products as well as the dreaded micro-transaction. So, when do we know when gaming has become a problem? We have answers to that question on our site, along with suggestions and solutions to help the gaming struggle.

Peer pressure, we all know what it feels like, and it can take on forms that have a little or nothing to do with drugs or alcohol. People can be pressured into partaking in certain activities or behaving in a certain manner. No matter what the case, peer pressure is a difficult situation that encourages people to do things that they would not normally do.

Peer pressure is another term that describes the influence that one's friends, coworkers, and schoolmates can have on their behavior. There is a negative connotation surrounding the word peer pressure, and for good reason. While it is possible to experience positive peer pressure, the ramifications of negative peer pressure are often more obvious. For this reason, the term generally describes a type of peer pressure that encourages people to make unhealthy decisions.

This situation is a common occurrence. Whether it is indirect or direct peer pressure, it plays upon the individual's desire to be accepted by a larger group. This desire often trumps one's rational mind, and they may be willing to make decisions that serve the group rather than their own interest.

Have you ever noticed that just about every movie or television show you watch shows someone drinking alcohol at some point?
