Traits of High-Functioning Alcoholics (https://goo.gl/Ub91Zj)

Many people think of alcoholics as drinking themselves into an incapacitated state. Others believe that if someone they love were an alcoholic, then they would know it without a doubt. For many people, both of these things are true.

For those people who are a high functioning alcoholic, their life is comprised of binge drinking and pretending to have a normal existence.

For high-functioning alcoholics, their goal is to create a persona and a lifestyle that looks normal. With periods of binge drinking hidden in the middle of everyday events, it might be hard to detect for even the closest of family and friends.

The reality is some people hide their alcoholism in plain sight in the middle of a normal life, career, and relationship.

Using Exercise to Beat Cocaine Addiction (https://goo.gl/wSoxhR)

There are many different types of addiction recovery therapy. While different types of treatments work for different types of drugs or patients, the way that you keep your sobriety in place depends on what you like to do.

Many people use exercise to manage excess energy and time after addiction.

Staying sober can be easier if you have something to focus on and occupy your mind. From running to yoga, the exercise that is right for you is up to you. You don't have to have a certain routine or kind of exercise. Your goal is only to spend your time doing something that is healthy for your body and designed to boost your overall wellbeing.

Sobriety is the daily fight to stay clear of substance abuse and the habits that lead to addiction.

Late Life Addiction: Lisa Marie Presley (https://goo.gl/CSzUHj)

Many people think of drug addiction as something that happens during the high school or college years of a person's life. The reality is that substance abuse can be a problem at any stage of life. The ability to cope with daily struggles and to overcome the pain of loss can lead to a problem with drugs or alcohol.

Age is not a contributing factor for a substance abuse problem or developing an issue with addiction to drugs.

The critical thing to remember is that addiction is not a permanent situation at any age. Recovery is an option that can teach sober habits and ways to deal with pain that does not include drugs or alcohol.

No matter what life throws at you, recovery is always the best choice because you are able to bounce back from the setbacks. Learn more about the real struggles of Lisa Marie Presley that started her down the path to substance abuse later in life at https://goo.gl/CSzUHj.

Pet Owners: FDA Warns Vets about Opioids (https://goo.gl/ReB9DJ)

It might seem odd that veterinarians would be warned by the FDA to protect medications from pet owners. There is a reason to believe that some people with opioid addiction might abuse their pets medication.

An addiction to opioid medications can lead to unbelievable resources for obtaining the drug of choice.

The FDA is instructing and imposing limits on veterinarians who give painkillers to animals as apart of chronic pain management. With the recognition that substance abuse and addiction might lead pet owners to sell or consume medications intended for cats and dogs, the FDA is extra careful of the dispensing and issuing of these prescriptions.

Because vets are licensed to dispense drugs like hydrocodone or morphine which are potent opioids, the FDA is making sure to cover all bases and resources for these drugs in an effort to control the epidemic.

Prescription for Addiction and Substance Abuse (https://goo.gl/2Tdk9J)

When the doctor prescribes some medication, most people go directly to the pharmacy to have it filled. With trust in our doctors and medical practitioners, it's hard to believe that a prescribed medication might lead to an addiction. The truth is that many opioid prescriptions leave patients with an uncontrollable substance abuse problem.

It would be hard to go through the day without hearing the news of a celebrity who has overdosed or died due to drugs. Everyone knows that there is an opioid epidemic running through the United States. Many people blame doctors and pharmaceutical companies for the readily available drugs that lead to these addictions.

In truth, many states have put laws in place to monitor and control the prescription drugs given to patients.

Pregnancy: Babies Born with Opioid Addiction (https://goo.gl/SezzQb)

We often talk about the toll that addiction takes on those who have substance abuse problems. We talk about the damage the drugs and alcohol can do to families. It is often part of our discussion that relationships and friendships are the first to fall victim to an addiction.

Although these are all heart-breaking, babies born with opioid addiction is often the saddest thing about the growing drug epidemic.

It is easy to forget that pregnant women make up a large part of the addiction community. Over the past 15 years, studies show that the number of babies born with an opioid addiction has quadrupled. Doctors, emergency rooms, and hospitals are all feeling the fallout of trying to cope with these newest and youngest members of the addiction group.

Find out more about what the medical profession is doing to aid babies born with an opioid addiction and how pregnant women can get help before birth at https://goo.gl/SezzQb.
