Paperback: $17.97
Ships in 3-5 business days
The question is not whether alcohol and other drug use is a problem in rural and frontier areas. Prevalence data provide ample evidence that the problem exists. In 1990, a report on rural drug abuse... More > by the General Accounting Office stated that total substance abuse rates are about as high in rural and frontier States as in nonrural States. What differentiates between rural and nonrural areas is that the prevalence rates for particular drugs may vary. For example, the rate of cocaine use appears to be lower in rural areas than in cities, whereas prevalence rates for other drugs, such as inhalants, may be higher. Alcohol is the most widely abused substance in rural areas. However, more than 4 of every 10 rural high school seniors have tried marijuana; 1 in 11 rural high school seniors reports having tried cocaine. Among students in rural areas, the lifetime, annual, and 30-day prevalence rates for stimulants, inhalants, sedatives, and tranquilizers are comparable to those of seniors in nonrural areas...< Less

The abuse of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) is undeniably linked with economic and personal adversities for both individuals and society. It is estimated that the annual national cost of substance... More > abuse is more than $144 billion. This includes related health and mental health care, social welfare, victim's losses, unemployment and lost productivity, and criminal justice system costs.

Siting Drug and Alcohol Treatment Programs: Legal Challenges to the NIMBY Syndrome By U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Paperback: $20.94
Ships in 3-5 business days
This manual examines the legal remedies available to alcohol and drug treatment providers who wish to challenge discriminatory zoning and siting decisions that result from the NIMBY syndrome. The... More > NIMBY Syndrome is not new and does not arise solely in opposition to alcohol and substance abuse treatment programs. Community resistance is often mobilized to prevent the opening or expansion of many types of health and social services facilities, including homeless shelters, group homes for the mentally ill, halfway houses for ex-offenders and health-related facilities for persons with AIDS. The opening of an alcohol and drug treatment program, regardless of modality, is often met by community resistance. Neighborhood opposition has delayed or prevented the siting of many treatment programs, and even disrupted the relocation of existing programs. Unfortunately, even if a program ultimately prevails, the fight can be costly, not only in terms of resources, but in its effects on the clients as well.< Less

The regulations that protect the identities of persons in alcohol or drug abuse treatment have their genesis in two statutes of the early 1970's: the Comprehensive Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism... More > Prevention, Treatment and Rehabilitation Act of 1970 and the Drug Abuse Prevention, Treatment and Rehabilitation Act of 1972. These statutes were implemented by regulations issued by the then Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) in 1975. Revised in 1987 by one of HEW's successors, the Department of Health and Human Services, the regulations are set out at title 42, part 2, of the Code of Federal Regulations. Recently, Congress reaffirmed and reorganized the original confidentiality statutes by merging them into one act, the Public Health Service Act, now title 42, section 290dd–3, of the United States Code. The merger had no effect on the confidentiality regulations. Throughout this document, references to the confidentiality law or regulations will mean the regulations at title 42, part 2...< Less

The Sinclair Secret to Curing Alcoholism: An Interview With Dr. David Sinclair On His Breakthrough Alcohol Treatment Method By Michael Senoff
eBook (ePub): $2.99

David Sinclair PhD stumbled onto his innovative research as a student in the late 1960s. He noticed that detoxed lab rats jumped at the chance to guzzle alcohol even though they’d been clean... More > and sober for weeks. That research showed there was a definite “craving” for the drug that didn’t just go away with the standard treatment of rehabilitation and abstinence. Turns out, those cravings are caused because drinking alcohol releases endorphins in the brain. So the cure could be simple -- develop a way to block those endorphins and people would reduce their alcohol intake on their own, without consciously trying. That process is now a reality, known as the Sinclair Method. David says that people who take Naltrexone will usually end up drinking less than two drinks per day, and may decide to quit altogether. But they have control over their addiction and are able to make the choice themselves. And with an amazing 75% success rate, this could be the best choice for many people worldwide.< Less
