CRC Health Group is extremely proud to work with State authorities that provide support for people with substance abuse treatment needs. West Virginia has been a strong supporter of substance abuse treatment services. Without treatment, chronic drug and alcohol abuse becomes a disaster for families, employers, law enforcement and the community. We commend the efforts of HHS and Sheila Kelly, Assistant Commissioner of the Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities, for the clinically sound and comprehensive set of regulations that now govern the operation of methadone treatment clinics.
CRC Health Group provides nationwide treatment services for science-based substance abuse and behavioral health disorders. We also own and operate a number of opiate treatment clinics in West Virginia. We are very proud to be the largest drug and alcohol treatment provider in the nation. CRC is dedicated to providing the absolute highest quality care to our patients. We focus on achieving the lowest possible relapse rates. We focus on outcome-based evidence of treatment effectiveness for opiate addiction.
I am concerned that the recent rash of negative publicity and political commentary on methadone treatment might lead to unwise changes to treatment regulations that are not consistent with science. Changes that are not consistent with evidenced-based clinical protocols will adversely affect treatment outcomes and therefore negatively impact West Virginia communities and families.
I have fought for greater public awareness of the benefits of science-based drug treatment from the time that I served as Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (1996-2001) to the present. This issue is so crucial that I wanted to express my concern directly.
Science-based methadone maintenance treatment helps those addicted to opiates sustain their recovery. The result is less crime, fewer emergency room admissions, more citizens working, and less suffering for families and the community. More individuals contribute in taxes instead of costing in health or imprisonment. We are proud of our CRC support of West Virginia's drug and alcohol treatment system. Our clinics make a huge difference in the battle against heroin and OxyContin addiction.
Heroin has always been a problematic drug in the United States, but recent reports show a tripling over the last five years in abuse of "the new heroin," opiate painkillers such as OxyContin, Vicodin, Dilaudid, Codeine, Morphine and Fentanyl. Teens are the latest to come into this trend - and perhaps the saddest to see in prison. Some 4.5 million youths, or 19 percent of U.S. teenagers, reported taking prescription painkillers, according to the Partnership for a Drug Free America last year.

Alcohol is Everywhere

Alcohol is Everywhere

Colm Clarke

Friday, September 14, 2007 We have all achieved many things in our life. Whether your a child or enjoying your golden years, I've no doubt you have achieved alot over your life. Alcohol is everywhere. There are more and more off-licences, pubs, restaurants, hotels and supermarkets selling one of the most devastating "drug" ever known to man than ever before. Binge drinking is on the increase across globe. In particular, binge drinking amoung teenagers in Ireland and Great Britain has reached a crisis level and as a result it is having a very negative effect on the education system and public order. If you begin to drink too much or use it as a cruch to reduce fear or anxiety in awkward situations it will greatly increase your chances of developing alcoholism. The chances of developing alcoholism is greatly increased if you drink alot over a period of time, on most nights (or days) a week, drinking the next day to cure a hang over, drinking to relieve depression or anxiety or panic attacks and mixing alcohol with tranquilizers or "street drugs".

You find that when you decide to go for 2 or 3 drinks that you end up drinking more, being unable to stop, having blackouts regularly, getting into all sorts of trouble. One minute you maybe out drinking and quite intoxicated and the next thing you notice is that you wake up in a police cell, or in a hedge by the road, or casualty, or by the sea shore etc etc and you have no idea in the world how you ended up there. This is a very sure indication that you are drinking far too much. You may have experienced one or more black-outs over the course of your drinking. It is the body's way of telling you that something is wrong. It's probably the most important warning sign that you will get. It is crazy and frightening to hear youngsters condoning it, "I was out of it last night, don't remember a thing, it was great crack!". If you think that drinking yourself into oblivion or not remembering anything is great fun you would want to seriously start confronting your drinking problem.

If you suffer from depression or are lonely, grieving, being bullied, experiencing suicidal thoughts or if there are sexual issues, drinking alcohol will only make all these things worse. Okay, you might think that you are happy for a few hours but it is a well known fact that alcohol is a depressant and it will only make matters worse. It is so important to know that. Initially, alcohol will make you more talkative, relaxed and maybe a bit hyper and energetic. Alcohol removes inhibitions, like when you go out to a club you feel all tensed up first and after a few drinks you dont care what anyone thinks, after a good few more you end up making a complete idiot of yourself and maybe ending up fightening or doing something that you will regret. No one wants that. Your worth more than that! Never give alcohol a chance to abuse you because that is exactly what it wi...
