OxyContin Maker Explored Expansion Into “Attractive” Anti-Addiction Market | The Fix: “It is an attractive market,” the team working on the project wrote. “Large unmet need for vulnerable, underserved and stigmatized patient population suffering from substance abuse, dependence and addiction.”
Long Term Effects of Overdoses on the Brain | The Fix: Despite what we know about how overdoses can kill, there is scant literature regarding chronic health outcomes for people who have survived multiple overdoses.
Stumbling Blocks in Long-Term Recovery | The Fix: I am a psychotherapist and person in long-term recovery from substance use disorder. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) which is the preferred method to treat trauma. I work with people from all backgrounds with a variety of complaints and presenting problems. One of my favorite populations to work with are people in recovery from any-kind of addiction. These people in recovery might be abstinent from substances and attend 12-step meetings; they might be on a maintenance medication like Suboxone or Methadone; they may want to moderate their drinking.
