Various types of drugs are used among our youth but some are more commonly abused than others. Every year a Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey is done among almost fifty thousand students in the eighth, ninth and twelfth grades. Results from the 2012 survey among high school students in the 12th grade show prescription medications and marijuana to be the most prevalently used.
Results below are of "past-year" commonly used drugs among twelfth graders from the 2012 MTF study. Marijuana was the most abused drug according to results with 36.4 percent of the 12th grade students reporting use of the drug within the past year. Many young people as well as adults don't feel marijuana is addictive but it is and the younger a person starts using the drug the greater their risk of addiction...
Rohypnol is one of the trade names for Flunitrazepam and is classed as a benzodiazepine. Rohypnol is not approved for use in the US but is readily available "on the street" and in Texas and Miami has become a major concern for addiction treatment professionals. Rohypnol has been in the news as a so called the "date rape" drug due to its effects of depressing the central nervous system and when mixed with alcohol it has an amnesiac effect on the memory centers of the brain. The effects of Rohypnol addiction include depression or paradoxical excitation.
Withdrawal symptoms from Rohypnol can include tremors, hallucinations and seizures; indeed seizures can occur a week or more after the person stops taking Rohypnol. As with any benzodiazepine addiction Rohypnol Addiction requires medical monitoring during the withdrawal period and also requires recovery treatment by trained addiction professionals.
This is the most one sided piece of B.S I've read in a long time. For a start your first heading: "How is kratom ABUSED?" The more appropriate heading "How and Why is kratom USED?" Just reading that lets me know where you're coming from. All drugs are bad, blah, blah, bllah. Maybe you should try some and have a rethink about the misinformation/propaganda your promoting on this 'addiction site' meant to inform the public. You sir (author) are; judging by this article doing no good for the...
The stages of change are a circular process. Ideally people will remain in the maintenance stage forever but without a new challenge; IE. school a new career, life can get pretty routine and depression can occur, and if that happens it can threaten the quality of sobriety, and lead to relapse drifting behavior. Once a lapse occurs, the person MUST have someone that they can talk to honestly, if shame or guilt forces a person to be silent about a lapse, then the chance of a full blown relapse...
Hi I'm from Australia just read your message glad subutex is helping you. I'm nearly 60 and can't see myself changing much .. I'm on mmt doing ok except for really bad constipation [no any cures] I fooled around when I was about 20 then stopped after 6 yrs. and then I had accident hurt my neck 8 years ago tried the old remedies but they seemed really different you would think because we are close to SE Asia it would be ok no way so I ended up on mmt never thought that would happen eases my...
I've been on methadone for almost 7 years. I have health problems and was taking several meds over the years to help with my pain. I kept hearing you should try methadone, it's not addicting like other opiates. I was told it just makes you feel "normal" but w/o being in pain. I started at a clinic and right away I didn't like how it made me feel. I'd talk weekly with my counselor and attended weekly group meetings. When I kept telling my counselor that it made me feel weird and I was just kind...
When you say that websites "claim" that Kratom helps with addiction, depression, pain, and fatigue, it does. Read testimonials all over the internet. It helps much more than it hurts. As for teens taking Kratom, how many have statistically died from the substance? None that I've ever read. Like marijuana, Kratom is a euphoria-producing substance and also helps remedy many ailments. Just because something produces euphoria, why should it be made illegal? Does the world have something against...
The thing for me is I know all of this, and yet I still allow my emotions to dictate my actions!!! I am a sucker for my so called family and they bring me down that much further!!! I have a lot of wasted talent, I miss my woman, no one trusts me, and I am not the only one with these feelings. Yet I am alone in these struggles because it is me that I'm struggling with!!!

I am not trying to burst your bubble, but just trying to save you time and money. I am a registered nurse and an addict. I did some research and there is no state, in the United States that allows a person to have a nursing license with a felony. It does not matter what the felony is for, it is a federal and state mandate that individuals that apply for nursing licensure not have ANY felonies. They will work with you, in 5 states, if you have a misdemeanor. It would be best to try either to...
No one should use ecstasy because of the severe after effects.
Hi everyone....I just wanted to let you all know that my best friend has been on the Methadone Program for 13 years at 190 mil per day. She is 5 feet tall and weighs 100 pounds. Last Saturday she was drinking Vodka (while on her methadone), Sunday she had three seizures and the hospital sent her home. Twenty minutes later she had a major seizure that she never came out of. My friend, Sara, is now lying in a hospital bed. She is completely brain dead and she will die anytime. Please,...
I've taken Valium approx. once a week for quite some time. It's black market Valium from India. Am I likely to suffer withdrawal off 10mg per week in 1 dose? I start to feel a bit crazy on the two week mark. How long is this feeling likely to last? I would really appreciate some advice as I have to work and the reason I go back to it is to get through a busy period but if I know how to taper off this dose I might see the light at the end on the tunnel.
