    Abuse of prescription drugs is on the rise across Texas

    Houston remains at the dark heart of the Lone Star State’s growing prescription drug abuse problem — accounting for a quarter of complaints about doctors’ suspect prescriptions and one-sixth of the state’s 1,900 annual accidental fatal overdoses, according to a review by the Houston Chronicle. But an examination of death data and interviews from around the state show the pill-popping problem is growing exponentially across Texas.Deaths by accidental overdoses – including preventable deaths involving prescription drugs – more than doubled from 2000 to 2008, according to the latest statewide death certificates.If you or someone you know has a drug abuse problem, we can help.

    Alcohol Facts and Statistics

    Alcoholism and alcohol abuse are among the most common, devastating, and costly problems in the United States. In fact, recent studies have shown that approximately 53 percent of adults in the United States have reported that one or more of their close relatives has a drinking problem. Those most vulnerable to problem drinking are young adults between the ages of 18 and 29, while those least susceptible are 65 years of age or older. These young adults are particularly susceptible to binge drinking (five or more drinks in two hours for men, four or more drinks in two hours for women). In fact, binge drinking accounts for more than half of the alcohol industry’s $155 billion market, and more than 75% of the beer industry’s market. In 2002, U.S. alcoholism statistics showed that 2.6 million binge drinkers were between the ages of 12 and 17.Sadly, alcoholism and alcohol abuse can lead to dangerous health problems and, in some cases, death. U.S. alcohol statistics, for example, reveal that approximately 50,000 cases of alcohol overdose are reported each year. Moreover, in 2009, an estimated 30.2 million people 12 or older reported driving under the influence of alcohol at least once in the past year. In addition, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 14,406 alcoholic liver disease deaths and 23,199 alcohol-induced deaths (excluding accidents and homicides) in 2007.If you or someone you know has an alcohol abuse problem, we can help.

    Half of Depressed Americans Get No Treatment

    About half of Americans with major depression do not receive treatment for the condition, and in many cases the therapies are not consistent with the standard of care, according to a new study.

    The study also showed that ethnicity and race were important factors in determining who received treatment, with Mexican Americans and African Americans the least likely to have depression care.

    While many people can feel sad from time to time, a depressive disorder occurs when these feelings start to interfere with everyday life, preventing someone from functioning normally, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The condition can be debilitating, hindering a person’s ability to work, sleep and eat. A combination of factors likely contributes to the disorder, including imbalances in brain chemicals, genetics, and stressful situations, the NIH says.
