I’ve seen miracles on almost a daily basis.

The road to recovery and sobriety is never an easy one. Working closely with individuals in recovery from drugs, alcohol, and prescription medications I’ve seen miracles on almost a daily basis.

Some get lost on pain medications, fearing that withdrawaling from the medications would create a situation in which they are unable to work. Whatever the issue may be at hand I have seen individuals successfully detox off of medications and drugs with spectacular results. Both the mental and physical aspects need to be addressed. Someone may have all their physical needs taken care of yet lack the mental stimulation to keep them from craving drugs. I’ve been involved with and worked for companies that work and that don’t work. If the answer is no then the physical side effects may be too great to bear. Some treatment centers will not personally handle this issue but will refer an individual to a treatment center that does so that they may then begin their treatment process.

Coming off the medication is one issue, finding and handling the issues in life that had one turn to the medications in the beginning is another.

Do your research and find a program that handles both the successful treatment of coming off medications as well as a program that focuses on helping the client address life issues to move forward in life. A program that helps out with life skills but not with helping the client safely come off medications may not be helpful or vice versa. Location is key to a good experience.

Individuals may find themselves on several different medications simply to counteract the side effects of the first medication. It’s attempting to cover up one problem by covering up another problem. For instance if someone is (Read more ...)

The connection of HIV/AIDS with humanitarian crises is creating troubling new problems for all over the world. By the end of 2006, about more or less 39.5 million people worldwide were livings with HIV/AIDS, 90% of them in poor and developing countries. During 2006 alone, a total of 4.3 million adults and children were found to be newly infected with HIV, and in the same year, 2.9 million people died from HIV/AIDS – 85% of them Africans. In two decades, AIDS has killed almost 30 million people and orphaned over 14 million children.

Social conflict, violence, political situation, Gender discrimination, poverty, women trafficking, early marriage, domestic and sexual violence, exploitation of sex workers, nutrition status, transmission of other STDs, intravenous/ injection drug abuse are among the socio-cultural factors, traditional social values linked to the spread of HIV/AIDS. Behaviors of injecting drug users (IDUs) in Bangladesh place them at very high risk for HIV infection. Currently 8.9% of people registered with HIV/AIDS infected the virus through injecting drug use in the central area.

In 1987, Pakistan was reported first HIV/AIDS case in Lahore. During the late 1980s and 1990s, it became evident that an increasing number, mostly men, were becoming infected with HIV while living or traveling abroad.

In Pakistan, the intravenous drug users (IDU) are the most potential carriers of HIV/AIDS among the vulnerable groups in the country, high HIV infection levels among groups of IDUs could cross over into other populations, including male and female sex workers. In Larkana, 8% of injecting drug users were HIV-infected in 2005, as were at least 6% in Faisalabad, Lahore, Sargodha and Sialkot, where a majority of injecting drug users were either married or sexually active. In Karachi, 26% of injecting drug users participating in a 2005 study were found to be HIV-infected. The majority of infected drug users had one risk factor in common: they used non-sterile injecting equipment. Even the most basic elements of effective harm reduction are lacking. Only one half of the injecting drug users taking part in a study in Karachi and Rawalpindi, for example, knew that HIV could be transmitted through using unclean needles—and as many of them said they had used non-sterile injecting equipment in the previous month.

Rainbow Nari O Shishu Kallyan Foundation’s reveal extremely high levels of infections among adolescent girls, which are higher than those for boys. This is mainly because of the fact that at young age, boys have sex with girls of (Read more ...)
