Starting out as a summer cottage built high upon "Breezy Knoll" in York Village in 1906, York Hospital has since grown to become one of the most respected, caring and sophisticated facilities in the Seacoast area. Early incorporators purchased the land atop "Breezy Knoll" where the hospital still stands today, for $15,000. In a converted cottage style home, York Hospital opened its doors on July 22, 1906. It was a 10-room hospital and among the first patient's treated, there were diagnoses of Typhoid Fever, Epilepsy, Rheumatism and Delirium; with surgical cases including appendectomies, fracture care, carcinoma, endometriosis and hysterectomy. The first President of the Board was Seabury W. Allen, elected in 1904. - See more at: http://www.yorkhospital.com/about-york-hospital/#sthash.1gnwxexI.dpuf

Friday, September 14, 2007 Addiction begins with pain, sometimes physical, other times mental or emotional.

Almost all use or abuse of alcohol or drugs is related to escapism- a need to deaden feelings of hurt, sorrow, loss or pain.

An addict may become an addict by first having a physical injury of some sort. The doctor prescribes pain medication, and before long the addict is hooked. Aside from the pain-killing effects of the drug on the physical body, the addict also recieves an emotional/mental relief, which contributes to the addiction.

A person who uses illegal, or street drugs, most often is searching for an escape. Many psychiatrists and therapists now refer to illegal drug use, or alcohol abuse as "self-medicating".
