FDA Drug Info Rounds, December 2010: Drug Shortages
It is FDA's policy to help prevent or alleviate shortages, primarily of medically necessary drug products, since these can have significant public health consequences. A drug shortage may involve either an actual or a potential shortage of a drug product. A product is considered to be medically necessary, or a medical necessity, if it is used to treat or prevent a serious disease or medical condition, and there is no other available source of that product or alternative drug or therapy that is judged by medical staff to be an adequate substitute. The FDA website provides information on shortages and limited distribution of medically necessary drugs. It includes information about the specific drug, the reason for the shortage and the manufacturers anticipated date of availability. FDA also posts press releases and other notices of recalls from the firms involved as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties. The article "FDA's Role in Responding to Drug Shortages" published in the American Journal of Health Systems Pharmacists (2002 Aug 1;59(15):1423-5), provides additional information. The ASHP guideline describes the contributing factors to drug product shortages and recommends a general process for inventory management in preparation for and working through shortage situations. ASHP Guideline on Managing Drug Shortages. Sign up for an E-mail notification Pharmacists may sign up to receive updates of drug products added to the Current Drug Shortages, and Resolved Drug Shortages lists on the FDA website.

FDA Drug Info Rounds, July 2010: Long-Acting Beta-Agonists (LABAs)
Long-Acting Beta-Agonists (LABAs), a class of medications used for the treatment of asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), now have new recommendations in their drug label intended to promote their safe use in the treatment of asthma. The agency required manufacturers to revise their drug labels because of an increased risk of severe exacerbation of asthma symptoms, leading to hospitalizations, in pediatric and adult patients, as well as death in some patients using LABAs for the treatment of asthma. FDA believes that when LABAs are used according to the recommendations outlined above and in the approved drug labels, the benefits of LABAs in improving asthma symptoms outweigh their risks of increasing severe asthma exacerbations and deaths from asthma.

FDA Drug Info Rounds, August 2010: Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs)
The FDA is revising the prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) labels for proton pump inhibitors to include new safety information about a possible increased risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, and spine with the use of these medications. The new safety information is based on FDA's review of several epidemiological studies. Some studies found that those at greatest risk for these fractures received high doses of proton pump inhibitors or used them for one year or more. The majority of the studies evaluated individuals 50 years of age or older and the increased risk of fracture primarily was observed in this age group. As a precaution, the "Drug Facts" label on the OTC proton pump inhibitors (indicated for 14 days of continuous use) also is being revised to include information about this risk.

Drug Maker Accused of False Advertising
A county in the U.S. state of California is suing GlaxoSmithKline, the maker of Avandia, a controversial diabetes drug. The lawsuit was spurred by a report on the drug released by the U.S. Senate last week (March 22). That report accused the drug company of withholding information about side effects of serious heart problems, including death. At issue now is whether Avandia should be taken off the market.

FDA Drug Info Rounds, May 2010: Single-ingredient Oral Colchicine
Although unapproved colchicine has been used for many years, FDA approved the first single-ingredient oral colchicine product, Colcrys, in July 2009 for the treatment of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) and acute gout flares; in October 2009 Colcrys was approved for prophylaxis of gout flares (chronic gout). The approved prescribing information for Colcrys includes a new drug interaction warning, updated dosing recommendations and a medication guide. Pharmacists are reminded to dispense only FDA approved products.

FDA Drug Info Rounds, September 2010: Evamist
Evamist (estradiol), an estrogen hormone, is used in women to reduce hot flashes during menopause. It is sprayed on the skin on the inside of the forearm between the elbow and the wrist. Evamist was approved by FDA in July 2007. Since then through June 2010, FDA has received 8 postmarketing cases of unintended exposure of children to Evamist. The reported adverse effects were consistent with premature puberty in females, including development of breast buds and breast mass. For males, reported adverse effects were consistent with gynecomastia. The signs and symptoms appeared several weeks to months after the adult patient initiated therapy with Evamist. Some cases reported symptom resolution after the Evamist user discontinued the drug or used preventive measures to avoid unintentional exposure of children to the drug. FDA is currently reviewing these reported adverse events and is working with the company to identify any factors that may contribute to unintended exposure. FDA and the company are also evaluating ways to minimize the risk.

WARNING Drug gang has secret nuclear information
See 0:45 - The Ministry adds that secret information from the Los Alamos Nuclear Weapons Laboratory ended up at the hands of a drug gang in 2006. The Russian Foreign Ministry's website says the United States has been in breach of several arms-related treaties, including the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty, also known as START ONE, and a pact on conventional weapons. The Ministry also accuses the US of violating the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. In particular, Russia says, the US has failed to provide assurances that some nuclear missile launchers and bombers converted to carry conventional weapons can't be retrofitted. In Washington, the State Department is dismissing the charges. Russia also accuses the US of preventing international supervision of its compliance with the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention. The Ministry adds that secret information from the Los Alamos Nuclear Weapons Laboratory ended up at the hands of a drug gang in 2006. Russia and the United States signed a new START treaty on April 8th, replacing the START ONE agreement that expired in December. http://english.cntv.cn/program/newsupdate/20100808/100653.shtml Fidel Castro israel zionist mossad explosion remote controlled al qaeda 9/11 september 11th twin towers false flag illegal massive cover up war of terror cia bush fema camps brown blair iraq torture bin laden cybersecurity hacking nwo endgame conspiracy theories truth WTC World Trade Center US inside job cover-up obama nanothermite nuclear bomb evidence pentagon

Drug Watchdog Sidelined
VICTORIA - Medical health experts call the Therapeutics Initiative a counter-balance to one of the most lucrative industries in the world. But the independent drug watchdog is being sidelined by the Province. The program was established in 1994 at UBC. It provides physicians and pharmacists with evidence-based information on prescription drug therapy. The program is being phased out this summer and a new drug review model is being put in place. Health Minister Kevin Falcon says a 2007 pharmaceutical task force made up of academics, clinical professionals and pharmaceutical industry leaders said there should be a new drug review model to improve clinical advice and increase transparency. The opposition says the Therapeutics Initiative is credited with protecting lives and saving the health system money.

GSK Avandia - Effects of taking diabetes drug
Welcome! This information has been taken from Mike Adams website. GlaxoSmithKline, maker of the diabetes drug Avandia, knew the drug was linked to tens of thousands of heart attacks but went out of its way to hide this information from the public, says a 334-page report just released by the Senate Finance Committee. This report also accuses the FDA of betraying the public trust, explaining that FDA bureaucrats intentionally dismissed safety concerns found by the agency's own scientists. The report says that Big Pharma's drugs "put public safety at risk because the FDA has been too cozy with drug makers and has been regularly outmaneuvered by companies that have a financial interest in downplaying or under-exploring potential safety risks." Sales of Avandia were $3.2 billion (yes, billion) in 2006. According to a statistical analysis in the report, if all the diabetics currently taking Avandia were put on a "safer" drug, it would avert 500 heart attacks and 300 cases of heart failure every month in the United States alone. Presently, hundreds of thousands of Americans are still taking this drug, and hundreds will continue to die each month as a result, according to the report estimates. This report, championed by U.S. Senators Grassley and Baucus, is the result of investigators pouring through more than 250,000 pages of documentation gathered from GlaxoSmithKline and the FDA. The document reveals some rather startling facts about the dangers of Avandia, including evidence from the FDA's own scientists who concluded that Avandia was associated with 83,000 heart attacks. I have found that playing God with out bodies using foreign drugs will not improve our quality and quantity of life on this gorgeous planet. My Q: What environmental challenge has caused your body to create type II diabetes? What distinction could you make right NOW to change your direction and improve your health? Mike Adams continues Are you kidding me? A drug company hid data that its high-profit drug was linked to increased risk of heart attacks? A drug company intimidated physicians and got away with hoodwinking the public while raking in billions of dollars in sales for a drug that the FDA's own scientists said should be pulled from the market? Sounds like business as usual at the FDA, the "sweep it under the rug" division of the pharmaceutical industry. Once again, Dr David Graham turns out to be the sharpest guy in the room while having the courage to tell the truth even when surrounded by an agency full of morons and criminals. The drug industry must hate this guy. But they can't get rid of him because he's one of the very few scientists in the FDA who is actually committed to protecting the public. Gee, what a concept, huh? The FDA as a whole abandoned that idea so long ago that virtually nobody there even remembers what it means. Protect the public? What do you mean? As in, lose profits by banning dangerous drugs that just happen to be making big money? That's unthinkable at the FDA as we know it today. The agency exists to promote pharmaceuticals, not to limit their sales just because a hundred thousand people happen to drop dead each year from taking FDA-approved drugs. When it comes to safety vs. profits, the FDA chooses profits for Big Pharma time and time again. Do the math on this: If Avandia is linked to 83,000 heart attacks, and if roughly 50% of those are fatal (that's just an estimate), then Avandia could conceivably be the cause of 40,000 deaths. The terrorist attacks of 9/11 killed roughly 3,000 Americans, and yet just one drug that has been mysteriously kept on the market by the FDA appears to have killed more than ten times as many Americans as the terrorists. So what does that make the FDA? More dangerous than the terrorists, of course! Over to you and find humour in your daily thoughts today. Sending love

FDA Basics: John Jenkins, MD on the Development, Testing, and Monitoring of New Drugs?
John Jenkins is Director of the Office of New Drugs at the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. "Its very important for people to understand," says Jenkins, "that we dont know everything about new drugs at the time we approve them. [I]f we waited until we knew everything you could possibly know, then the wait would be too long, and patients would be denied access to important new treatments." Today, Jenkins notes, the FDA has "several initiatives underway where were trying to leverage the information we know and the expertise we have in house and work with partners outside the agency to improve health outcomes. That he adds is why those of us who work here, work here, because we want to have an impact on patients and public health."

Past to Present: CIA Drug Smuggling
Various sources allege the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been involved in several drug trafficking operations. The CIA is accused of working with groups which it knew were involved in drug trafficking, so that these groups would provide them with useful intelligence and material support. In order to provide covert funds for the Kuomintang (KMT) forces loyal to Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek, who were fighting the Chinese communists under Mao, the CIA helped the KMT smuggle opium from China and Burma to Bangkok, Thailand by providing airplanes owned by one of their front businesses, Air America. The Central Intelligence Agency was involved in smuggling opium produced in Western Vietnam and Eastern Cambodia to heroin producers in the United States. Agents of the U.S. Government used drug production and trafficking operations to fund covert military activities in Vietnam. Large amounts of this heroin were sold to U.S. soldiers in Vietnam. The CIA worked in concert with the Corsican crime families, and Laotian drug lords, who assisted the CIA in their fight against communists. One of the CIA's primary contacts was Hmong leader Vang Pao, who was attempting to gain complete control of the local opium trade, and was using the income from this to fight against Laotian and Vietnamese communist forces. Released on April 13, 1989, the Kerry Committee report concluded that members of the U.S. State Department "who provided support for the Contras were involved in drug trafficking...and elements of the Contras themselves knowingly received financial and material assistance from drug traffickers." In 1996 Gary Webb wrote a series of articles published in the San Jose Mercury News, which investigated Nicaraguans linked to the CIA-backed Contras who had smuggled cocaine into the U.S. which was then distributed as crack cocaine into Los Angeles and funneled profits to the Contras. The CIA was aware of the cocaine transactions and the large shipments of drugs into the U.S. by the Contra personnel and directly aided drug dealers to raise money for the Contras. In 1996 CIA Director John M. Deutch went to Los Angeles to attempt to refute the allegations raised by the Gary Webb articles, and was famously confronted by former LAPD officer Michael Ruppert, who testified that he had witnessed it occurring. The CIA - in spite of objections from the Drug Enforcement Administration, allowed at least one ton of nearly pure cocaine to be shipped into Miami International Airport. The CIA claimed to have done this as a way of gathering information about Colombian drug cartels. But the cocaine ended up being sold on the street. In November 1996 a Miami jury indicted former Venezuelan anti-narcotics chief and longtime CIA asset, General Ramon Guillen Davila, who was smuggling many tons of cocaine into the United States from a Venezuelan warehouse owned by the CIA. In his trial defense, Guillen claimed that all of his drug smuggling operations were approved by the CIA. In the mid 1980s, the CIA created a unit in Haiti, whose purported purpose was anti-drug activity, but was in reality "used as an instrument of political terror", and was heavily involved in drug trafficking. The members of the unit were known to torture Aristide supporters, and threatened to kill the local head of the DEA. According to one U.S. official, the unit was trafficking drugs and never produced any useful drug intelligence. In 1989, the United States invaded Panama as part of Operation Just Cause, which involved 25,000 American troops. Gen. Manuel Noriega, head of government of Panama, had been giving military assistance to Contra groups in Nicaragua at the request of the U.S. which, in exchange, allowed him to continue his drug trafficking activities, which they had known about since the 1960s. When the DEA tried to indict Noriega in 1971, the CIA prevented them from doing so. The CIA, which was then directed by future president George Bush, provided Noriega with hundreds of thousands of dollars per year as payment for his work in Latin America. However, when CIA pilot Eugene Hasenfus was shot down over Nicaragua by the Sandinistas, documents aboard the plane revealed many of the CIA's activities in Latin America, and the CIA's connections with Noriega became a public relations "liability" for the U.S. government, which finally allowed the DEA to indict him for drug trafficking, after decades of allowing his drug operations to proceed unchecked. In the 1990s, the CIA and DEA were involved in a drug smuggling operation with Lebanese and Syrian drug traffickers, which used Pan Am aircraft to smuggle opium out of Frankfurt, Germany.

LANGFORD -- West Shore RCMP Corporal Scott Hilderley says he's no chemist, but easily managed to whip up a batch of GHBB - commonly called the 'date rape drug' Friday morning at the detachment in about 10 minutes. "Unfortunately you don't have to be technically gifted to make these drugs" he says. The makeshift drug lab is part of a seminar Hilderley's hosting for Capital Region officers to remind them, and you, GHB is out there and being used to sexually assault young girls. "A very small percentage of the incidents that take place do get reported primarily because the victim is very hazy and suffers amnesia, doesn't have a clear recollection of what happened" Hilderley warns. It is also very difficult to prove a GHB aided assault and police hope to prevent the attacks from happening in the first place by arming parents and school officials with knowledge. "Parents seem to have a naive mindset about their son or daughters' ability to put these together but we did it here in a matter of 5 or 10 minutes" Hilderley adds. And a new study backs up that claim. The Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse says 70% of parents don't think their 12-17 year olds have tried drugs. But 1/3 of 15-17 year olds and nearly half of 18-19 year olds admit to using marijuana. Tashia was 14 when she became a garbage head, or someone who will take any drug they can get their hands on. "I did just about anything - my main drugs were heroin, crack, speed, ketamine, oxycontin, weed" she says. Her mom says she didn't see the signs Tashia was losing control until it was almost too late. "I thought I was a very realistic parent. I thought I was informed based on my own teen activities" says Sanne Schmidtberg. Experts suggest watching your child's cell phone and computer use, and West Shore RCMP remind young people to keep an eye on their friends and their drinks.

Clomid Defined
http://fertilitypartnership.com/infertility-glossary Clomid is probably the single most used fertility drug by OBGYNs across the United States. It's a very useful drug--it is overused--but has some good clinical applications. What is Clomid? Clomid is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) that is in the class of drugs that includes drugs such as tamoxifen which is used in breast cancer. Well, what it does do, it's a drug that looks like estrogen but doesn't function like estrogen. All cells have receptors and that way they can respond to hormonal signals. So there are cells in your pituitary gland which is a gland is up behind your nose. It is responsible for stimulating your ovaries. It secretes another hormone called FSH or follicle stimulating hormone. Now the pituitary starts to secret follicle stimulating hormone and your ovaries start to respond with eggs, and estrogen starts to climb and then the pituitary sees that response. The estrogen binds to receptors on the pituitary and then there's what we call down regulation. And the levels of FSH start to drop. What Clomid does is it binds to the receptor. It sort of is like taking a key that's the same manufacturer as the key to your house but not the right key, so it fits into the lock but it doesn't turn. And so what ends up happening is your pituitary gland is blinded to the response of the ovaries so the pituitary gland continues to secrete FSH. So when you use Clomid you can trick your pituitary gland into making more FSH. Now the more advanced fertility drugs or just FSH that we inject into you, so this is an expensive way of giving you more FSH and stimulating your ovaries to make more eggs. Many years ago one of my mentors said to me that Clomid is a dirty drug. I remember thinking "Why?" Years later, after a lot of experience I realized he was right. Clomid is a difficult drug to use correctly because they're estrogen receptors all over your body and when you block the response to estrogen all over your body, then you end up with negative side effects. Most important from fertility standpoint is the lining of your uterus, your endometrium, when you use Clomid the lining of your uterus doesn't respond to the estrogen and ends up being too thin. So that when you do ovulate and you do make an embryo it doesn't have a safe place to land. So the use of Clomid requires careful surveillance and observation in order to be used correctly. Also Clomid is not a useful drug and a woman who's ovulating. Now, how does one know you've she's ovulated--and it's a trick question really because I'm sure your mind is thinking about what will, "you get the urine dipstick, your temperature chart, my doctor tells me with his ultrasound machine." But the truth is is only one way to know for sure that you've ovulated is that you get pregnant. But if a woman has regular periods and feels occasionally the twinges of ovulation and there are other factors: maybe progesterone levels later in the pregnancy and the temperature and dip urine and all that information is there and we presume that the woman is ovulating. Guess what? Clomid actually lowers the pregnancy rate. A well designed study published years ago said you have to be careful with the use of Clomid. However in the right patient population--that is people who are not ovulating--it can save them a lot of time and a lot of money and be extremely successful.

MEPS Background & Security Screening  !! MUST SEE !!
http://www.IGuardCalifornia.com MEPS Background & Security Screening Every applicant who goes through MEPS is given an FBI-level background check. This check looks for past criminal offenses, misdemeanor and above (this does not include parking tickets and minor traffic violations). MEPS staff will also ask applicants a series of questions about their backgrounds, for example, if they have used illegal drugs. It is crucial that applicants answer honestly. Admitting a past offense does not necessarily mean an applicant will be automatically disqualified, but dishonesty does. In some cases, lying at MEPS is a criminal offense. Applicants are also fingerprinted for their records at MEPS. Additional processing may be required of applicants whose future military job calls for higher security clearance. Security is of utmost importance at MEPS. A lot of personal information is being submitted, and great care is taken to respect applicants' privacy and protect their identities. Biometric screening has been implemented at all MEPS to increase efficiency and safety. This equipment scans for points of recognition on each applicant's face to guarantee an accurate ID. **For information about joining the military contact Army National Guard recruiter Staff Sergeant Brito at 562.900.0575 or visit http://www.iguardcalifornia.com **For more information about MEPS and the ASVAB visit http://www.asvab2enlist.wordpress.com For information about surviving Army Basic Training visit: http://www.howtosurvivebasictraining.blogspot.com

The Danger of Counterfeit Drugs (Second of Two Parts)
This is the VOA Special English Development Report, from http://voaspecialenglish.com We talked last week about counterfeit medicines and how the problem is especially bad in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The World Health Organization says up to thirty percent of the medicine sold in many developing countries is not real. It also estimates that up to fifty percent of the medicine sold on the Internet is counterfeit. That can put people at risk even in wealthy countries that represent only a small part of the counterfeit drug market. Today we look at what is being done to fight counterfeit drugs. Several companies are developing ways to make counterfeits easier to identify. And there are existing methods, like a machine that can quickly identify chemicals in pills to confirm if the pills are real. Other ideas include things like special tracking codes for drug packages. People could send a text message with the code and get a message back confirming that what they bought is listed in a database. Some drug makers and other companies put three-dimensional images called holograms on their products as a security device. Other anti-counterfeit efforts include the use of radio frequency identification tags. Many companies use these electronic tags to follow products through the supply chain from the manufacturer. The American Food and Drug Administration says RFID tags act like an electronic safety net to make it easier to catch counterfeits. Last July, the Food and Drug Administration advised manufacturers to add what are called physical chemical identifiers to their medicines. These are special chemicals, colorings or tastes that counterfeiters could not easily copy. Bryan Liang is with the Partnership for Safe Medicines, an organization in the United States. He says the Internet is not only a place where people can get tricked into buying counterfeit drugs. It is also a place where counterfeiters can find all the materials they need to make them. He says the most important members of the "counterfeit detection team" are the patients themselves. He says raids on counterfeiters are often the result of information from people who bought fake medicines. Bryan Liang says people who know their drugs and the effects of their drugs are the best security against fakes. And that's the VOA Special English Development Report. You can find last week's report on counterfeit drugs at voaspecialenglish.com. (Adapted from a radio program broadcast 01Mar2010)

Operation Unification: Police target illicit drug trade National Action Campaign
The NSW Police Force and interstate law enforcement agencies will today launch Operation Unification, in a continued effort to crack down on illicit drugs. The community is encouraged to get involved in the initiative and call Crime Stoppers over the next two weeks -- ends Friday 19 November -- to report information about the manufacture and distribution of illicit drugs, particularly amphetamines. Drug Squad Commander, Detective Superintendent Nick Bingham, said, "The number of illicit clandestine drug laboratories identified by police has risen by more than 20 per cent this year alone. "NSW Police have so far identified and dismantled 83 clandestine drug laboratories this year. "Illicit drug manufacture poses a substantial risk not only to those directly involved in the production, but also to bystanders and residents. "The chemicals used in illicit drug manufacture are toxic and can be hazardous if used in confined areas. "These clandestine labs not only produce dangerous drugs but create toxic and explosive environments that can put the community at risk," Det Supt Bingham said. The Chemical Operations Unit, attached to the NSW State Crime Command's Drug Squad, conducts regular pro-active operations to identify and dismantle clandestine drug laboratories. Most recently, the Drug Squad identified and responded to a clan lab at Kemps Creek on 14 October 2010, in which a 23-year-old man died after sustaining fatal injuries when the lab exploded and burst into flames. A 31-year-old man was also critically injured. This is the second clan lab-related fatality to have occurred in NSW. In 2003, a man died as a result of injuries sustained when a clan lab exploded at premises in St Marys. Police have also responded to several fires and explosions at clan labs in which people have received severe and life-threatening injuries as a result of these incidents. Det Supt Bingham, said drug labs in NSW have been located in a variety of locations including residential homes, rural properties, and industrial complexes. "Tackling illicit drug labs is everyone's business," Det Supt Bingham said. "Information from the public is vital in assisting police to identify and dismantle these labs." The NSW Police Force is committed to tackling the manufacture of illicit drugs and continues to work closely with law-enforcement agencies across the country, as well as the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service, to target the importation of precursor chemicals and scientific equipment. The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service are participating in the National Day of Action as part of an ongoing collaborative approach to disrupt, deter and prosecute persons involved in the importation and manufacture of illicit drugs. In support of new legislation, that has been introduced to combat the importation of illegal pill presses, Customs and Border Protection officers will be working closely with NSW Police Officers to detect and seize illegally imported pill presses. Operation Unification is aimed at raising community awareness about the dangers of illicit drugs as well as to encourage members of the public to get involved in the national amphetamine action campaign, and report any information to Crime Stoppers. The Chief Executive Officer of Crime Stoppers, Peter Price OAM, said the Operation Unification campaign was launched simultaneously today in every Australian capital city. WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: • Unusual/chemical odours coming from a premises • Premises with windows blacked out and fortification • Chemical drums, glassware, or related items at premises • Frequency of visitors attending a premises at unusual times • Visitors attending premises carrying large containers or unusual items. Anyone who has any information about clan labs in their area, or who is aware of any suspicious behaviour, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or email www.crimestoppers.com.au.

How to Get Over a Drug Addiction
Watch more Addiction & Substance Abuse videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/408883-How-to-Get-Over-a-Drug-Addiction Face yourself and your addiction. There's hope, but it rests on how serious you are about being healthy. Warning Once you've admitted you have a problem, seek immediate and ongoing professional medical attention. Step 1: Get emergency care Enter a clinic or emergency detox facility to receive immediate and consistent inpatient care to stop your drug abuse and avoid committing slow suicide. Step 2: Undergo detoxification Undergo detox under a doctor's supervision to withdraw safely. Through stepped-down doses of other substances with less severe side effects, you can get clean without relapsing. Step 3: Ask for help from others Ask for help from friends or family members who have suffered addictions. Use their experiences and advice rather than trusting your own judgment, which is liable to be skewed and unreliable. Tip Don't buy into the myth that this has to be done alone or that you are weak if you need help. This is the kind of thinking that enables drug abuse in the first place. Step 4: Attend outpatient therapy Attend outpatient therapy sessions to prevent relapse. Build a new and healthier network of friends and recovering people who can relate to you and who will support you. Step 5: Start counseling Start individual or family counseling with a drug rehabilitation specialist to get help developing coping skills and alternative behaviors. Work on communicating better with loved ones. Tip Accept that some family members or friends may have their own problems or addictions and are not ready or able to help. Step 6: Make recovery your first priority Conquer your problem first. Make recovery a priority. An unhealthy and self-destructive person cannot love anyone else before they learn to love themselves. Step 7: Request information on groups Request information from a doctor regarding a 12 step support group meeting in your area. Join the group, and attend sessions every day to face and conquer your chronic disorder. Did You Know? Illicit drug use in the United States among people in their 50s increased almost 75% from 2002 to 2008.
