The Best Ways to Research Addiction Treatment Facilities

This above theory found itself in a brighter spotlight following Columbia University’s five-year study conducted for its National Center of Addiction and Substance Abuse Program.

The study, Addiction Medicine: Closing the Gap Between Science and Practice revealed vital information for both patients and their families.

While the study acknowledged that an array of “evidence-based” practices such as screening models, intervention tactics, and addiction management tools were available to professionals, for some reason, they weren’t fully utilized.

A written portion of the synopsis summary also revealed, “The report exposes the fact that most medical professionals who should be providing treatment are not sufficiently trained to diagnose or treat addiction, and most of those providing addiction treatment are not medical professionals and are not equipped with the knowledge, skills or credentials necessary to provide the full range of evidence-based services, including pharmaceutical and psychosocial therapies and other medical care.”

Considered a “landmark research study,” the core of this informational piece proved more than ever how important it is for people to do their due diligence when it comes to finding the appropriate drug and alcohol treatment program.
Finding a facility which employs medical professionals who understand the disease of addiction is imperative in their multimodal practices. Another important piece is finding a facility whose team is seasoned in this field as well a finding people who provide genuine care to help a patient and their loved ones get through the recovery journey.

A critical aspect in recovery is for the patient to undergo a therapeutic model. This type of pathway clearly uncovers the issues which are causing the addiction or the behavior for the addiction. Once the issue(s) is resolved than the addiction recovery can truly begin.

A dual diagnosis treatment program also offers a high ratio of success stories.
Other key aspects to consider in a potential treatment center are:

• Visiting with the treatment center and speaking with their case management team members
• Checking on the treatment center’s credentials, affiliations and its campus surroundings
• Verifying the top hierarchy of their team should consist of master and doctorate level personnel
• The treatment model is consistent with a patient’s values – some 12-step or spiritual based philosophies may not blend well with a patient’s own belief system so compatibility is very important
• While group therapy may be fine for some, studies are showing that one-on-one sessions with a licensed therapist promotes healing
• For in-house rehabilitation, gender separate living quarters may prove to be more successful

As mentioned before, a dual therapy approach to drug or alcohol addiction will help a patient with any underlying issues such as depression or other social challenges. A successful addiction program will address not only the addiction itself, but what is manifesting or spurring the addiction.

A few of these dual areas may include:
• Psychological
• Social
• Medical

When interviewing these rehabilitation centers, ask for their success rates in terms of their treatment models.

Addiction recovery is a journey and finding the right treatment approach and facility is the starting point.

Hair Loss in Women – Causes and Remedies

Incessant hair fall and hair thinning can result to a hair loss nightmare particularly to women. Not only will it be a great potential to damage her self – esteem but it can also be a cause for stress. Hair loss or hair thinning is usually a condition that is associated with men. However, it is becoming prevalent especially with pattern baldness in women.

The causes among women are plenty but among the major factors that can result to baldness are female hormones. Hormonal changes that naturally happen to women can lead to premature hair fall. The women’s body is designed to undergo several hormonal changes during her lifetime. Also, disproportionate levels of estrogen can be a big part of the changes in hormone which can also result in this problem.

Another major cause of hair loss in women is severe stress. When a woman is experiencing severe stress or traumatic experience, chemicals are being released by the body which can lead to hair fall. Although this might be a temporary condition, hair growth may only resume when the stressful period is over which may take some time. Hair fall among women can also be hereditary. This condition is known to be androgenetic alopecia which is the second most prevalent cause of hair loss among women. A woman’s diet can also play a big part of hair loss problem they encounter. More often than not, women with imbalanced diet especially those who are consuming lesser amount of iron and protein are more prone to hair loss than those who observe a healthy lifestyle.

Nose Surgery Before and After

Nose surgery helps improve the appearance of the nose and the overall facial contour. This article discusses aspects to consider before and after nose reshaping surgery.

Considering a nose job or rhinoplasty? If yes, then you need to take into consideration what you can expect before as well as after the nose surgery. Two approaches are used in the procedure. Open rhinoplasty is the first approach. In this approach, the incision is made in the fleshy part between the nostrils. Usually this technique is used for more extensive surgery because it allows more space for the surgeon to perform the surgery. This is used for conditions such as correction of nose defects, correction of complicated nose deformity and trauma. Closed rhinoplasty is the second technique. As per the name, no incisions are generated on the nose. Many surgeons recommend closed rhinoplasty as no scars are left behind and it is not at all painful.

Before the Nose Surgery

While opting for the procedure of rhinoplasty, you must make sure that the instructions provided by the surgeon are followed. However, you must address these matters a few weeks before the operation is scheduled. If you are a smoker, the surgeon would ask to quit the habit well in advance. This is because smoking has negative effects and the process of healing will be compromised to a great extent. Even consumption of alcohol, a week prior to the procedure should be stopped owing to the same reasons. Furthermore, one must also ask the surgeons about the medications that are being taken. This is because the risk of bleeding will be increased due to some drugs. However, medications should not be stopped without consulting the doctor. All medical supplies should be bought well in advance. Someone must be arranged to drive you home from the hospital.

What to Do If Your Foot or Ankle Hurts

There are over a hundred different muscles and tendons in your feet. There are almost 60 different bones and joints in your feet. It’s not surprising that in such a complex system, things can sometime go wrong. So, what can you do if your ankle or foot starts to hurt?

Identify the Source of Pain

According to the National Institutes of Health, not treating a pain in your foot could lead to long term disability and permanent damage. That’s why it’s essential that you quickly identify what’s causing the pain.

Is it a strained or twisted ankle? Was it a sudden impact? Make sure you look at your shoes as potential culprits. According to the Mayo Clinic, ill fitting shoes are the #1 cause of foot pain. If the pain is dull and comes on gradually over days, it may be because of your shoes.

Protect the Injured Area

The first step to treating any foot pain is to protect the injured area. This helps prevent the foot from getting injured again. Do this by applying a brace or splinter to the injured area to hold the foot in place. If the injury is small, like a stubbed toe, you can just use tape to hold the injured area still.

Once you’ve protected the injured area, stop moving it. Keep it as still as possible throughout the recovery. If possible, walk with one left, with crutches or with the help of railings. If you absolutely must put weight on the injured foot, try to put the weight as far away from the injured area possible.

Apply Ice, 4 to 5 Times a Day

Ice causes blood vessels to constrict. This in turn reduces swelling. Reduced swelling can help reduce the pain, as well as speed up the healing process. The earlier you can start applying ice, the faster the injury will heal. The first few hours after the injury are the most important.

Apply ice to the injured area for 20 to 30 minutes, 4 or 5 times a day. In between sessions, apply light pressure to the injured area. A wraparound bandage is an effective tool to apply continual light pressure.

Keep the Foot Raised

Keep your foot raised when you’re sitting. Try to keep the foot above heart level. This reduces the blood flow to the foot, which also helps reduce the pain.

Following these steps will help ease the recovery for most types of ankle pain. If the pain persists, or if it’s more serious than the conditions discussed here, see a doctor right away.

Reason Number 2 Why People Stay In Pain

This is round two of our top three reasons why people don’t heal for the long term. Our last one was all about getting us to take personal responsibility and what we have to do consistently and daily, so we bring it to our heart, saying “This is for me, not for anybody else – this is something that I need to do.” We already got that one down. If you didn’t watch that one, go watch it. It’s last week or a week before, but it’s definitely on my website, so go check it out.

Number two on the whole list is our Mentality – what we think in our head, and the way that our culture is designed now. It’s all based off of “quick fixes” or we go to somebody to “fix” us, rather than thinking “it’s my responsibility to get myself better – I might need their help – but it’s not their job to ‘fix’ me” because you are not broken, folks. Not broken at all. You have to start recognizing that ”That’s in my head.” I need someone to “fix” me? That’s not how the body works. The body naturally defends itself against anything coming in from the outside, so, anything that’s coming in, your body will naturally defend against – everything. That’s just point blank. We have to realize, even with therapists that are trying to help us, even with medicines, drugs – your body’s naturally going to have this defense mechanism because it’s not organic. It’s not within itself to say, “Oh, hey, everybody come in.” It’s a natural, highly defensive mechanism. Having this “quick fix” mentality or “fix me” mentality doesn’t work for the long term. If you go into a PT saying “I’m in pain and it hurts,” I get it. It hurts, it sucks, you can’t function, you can’t do anything. But if you think, “I need to go to this person and he’s going to do this, this and this and I’m going to feel better and it’s gone,” you are fooling yourself. Fooling yourself!

Google Glass Technology App For Face Departure of Apparatus

Already someone got a ticket in their car for wearing Google Glass while driving, which is interesting considering the research behind HUD or Heads Up Displays and how they help a pilot or driver stay attune to what’s going on rather than having to keep looking down at gauges and such. Yes, it gets much more serious at higher speeds, looking down or glancing even for a second means you’ve already traveled a hundred yards – and a lot can happen in such a short time. Let’s talk.

How about some more challenges to this technology, for instance what about target affixation, where the user gets too involved in what they are looking at objects (targets) on the screen and forgets to maneuver or in the case of Google Glass divides their attention too much – same issue with text messaging. Worse, what if their Google Glass starts to move on their head or starts to fall off? Hmm, I was thinking about this the other day.

You see, not long ago, I was reading a research paper “On the Stability of Robotic Systems Worn by Humans” by H. Kazerooni, J. Douglas Meidt of the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University of Minnesota. Most of this research project was about early “haptics” and extension robotic technology for humans – very similar to much of our current technology in prosthetics – although this paper appeared to be written circa 1990.

Home Treatment Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is an illness where the thyroid gland is not able to produce the required amount of thyroid hormone.

A major problem is a deficiency of iodine which contributes to the malfunction of the thyroid gland.

The latest estimate taken in 2012 showed that there were over 200 million people throughout the world who have this condition.

The split between men and women is approximately 90% women and 10% men.

The thyroid gland is in the shape of a butterfly and is found at the front of the neck.

The thyroid gland produces a hormone that controls the energy usage in the body.

One can say that it manages your metabolism.

It is important that one should ensure they do not have a diet that is low in iodine as this can possibly cause damage to the gland.

High Cholesterol And Statin Drugs

Have you been diagnosed with high cholesterol? What is cholesterol anyway and what are statin drugs? Cholesterol is a soft white waxy substance that is found in every cell in your body. At least it should be. Cholesterol is used to produce hormones, cell membranes, bile acids, vitamin D and so much more. 75% of your cholesterol is made by your liver, the other 25% comes from the foods, or so called foods that we eat.

Statin drugs are the life saving, doctor recommended, universal panacea for the fear induced high cholesterol myth. It is a myth you know? High cholesterol is a universal scare tactic.

Somewhere around 25% of the cholesterol in your body is found in your brain. Bet you didn’t know that. According to the experts, there is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. I know you have heard of HDL (high density lipoprotein) and LDL (low density lipoproteins). You may even have heard of MDL and VLDL too, (medium density and very low density lipoproteins).
