Recently, director and lead patient advocate at My Life Recovery Centers, Chloe O’Reilly sat down with Radio Rehab host Dayna Keyes and chief medical officer at Sierra Tucson, Dr. Michael Genovese to discus the naltrexone implant and how it is saving lives.
Alcohol and drug abuse is an international epidemic blazing out of control. Many individuals and families have been so traumatized by its effects. Often it begins innocently and then addiction gets its grip and begins to injure and destroy lives and those around them. Approximately 53% of adults in the United States have reported that one or more of their close relatives has a drinking problem. But, what are the solutions? Why is the epidemic occurring? Why is the relapse rate so high? What are we missing? Continue reading →

New understanding of how alcohol affects the brain is prompting addiction experts to make a push for using medications to help people quit or cut down on excessive drinking.
For years, treatment has meant 28 days of rehab or a 12-step program. Success meant total abstinence. Only 1 in 10 of the 17 million Americans with a drinking problem ever tried.
Fewer Americans died from prescription painkiller overdoses in 2012 than the year before, the first such decline in more than a decade, according to fresh data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
At the same time, deaths from heroin nearly doubled from 2010 to 2012.
HEROIN was a scourge of America’s cities in the 1960s and 70s. But then it seemed to go out of fashion. By the 1990s it was less widely used than crack cocaine. In Europe its use has continued to decline, with the number of addicts falling by about one-third in the past decade. In America, by contrast, it is resurgent. Last year nearly 700,000 Americans took the drug, twice as many as a decade ago. It is now more popular than crack, by some measures. What explains heroin’s return?
Two medications could help tens of thousands of alcoholics quit drinking, yet the drugs are rarely prescribed to patients, researchers reported…
“It’s been a slow transition getting these medications onto the medical agenda,” she said. “But patients need to know that addiction is a biological condition of the brain and that we have treatments to improve it.”
Gabrielle Glaser with Atlantic has put together a great piece breaking down the faith-based 12-step program which dominates treatment in the United States and how researchers have debunked central tenets of AA doctrine and found dozens of other treatments more effective.
