Methanol & Other Impurities

Methanol is formed when fermenting beverages high in pectins – eg grapes and berries. Starting with a grain or sugar based wort, in a clean fermentor with a yeast culture from a well aereated source will result in small/none formed.
Carl from Hambletonbard (makers of Alcotec yeasts) details.

    Methanol, you will typically get around 2 or 3 parts per million (or milligrams per litre if you prefer) of methanol produced during fermentation of a standard 6kg type Alcotec – this is extremely low even compared to commercial products. We don’t have a great deal of data on methanol because whenever we have tested for it we have got extremely low results.

Mike explains about the pectin.

    The methanol comes from the pectin, which mainly composed of methyl esters of galactose. When pectin breaks down, by enzymes introduced by microorganisms, or deliberately introduced, the methyl esters combine with water to produce methanol, so the aim should be to leave the pectin well alone if you can.

    I think Jack would agree that what he means is that fermenting at a high temperature, or adding pectin enzyme, or trying for an abv higher than 12% all increase the risk of methanol being produced, so his advice about low temperature fermentation, adding no exra enzymes, and a target lower than 12%abv is all good stuff.


You are already being exposed to methanol from other sources. Some fruit juices are naturally high in methanol – for example apple juice can have 0.2-0.3% methanol, or if derived from pulp by enzymatic degradation, the levels can be 2 to 3 times higher.

The lethal dose of methanol is at least 100 ml that is equal to about 80000 mg or you need 27000 liters of mash at least to get that amount.

also from the webpage: “Dietary surveys have shown that an extreme consumer of orange juice drinks slightly over 2 litres/day. The estimated maximum intake of methanol based on this consumption would be 455 mg for a 60 kg adult which is below the maximum advisory intake of 600 mg per day for a 60 kg adult, recommended by the Department of Health.”

So if we stay under 600 mg per day we are safe, that’s the same as 200 liters of mash per day or about 70 liters of 40% alcohol per day if you weight is 60 kg.

total amount of methanol in mash expressed in ml is about 0.1 ml = nothing.


Jack comments.

    The Long Ashton Research Station did some studies that showed that ciders and apple juices clarified with pectic enzymes are higher in methanol due to the demethylation of juice pectins. The methanol content varied from 10 to 400 ppm in the test samples. I don’t know which fruits are highest/lowest in pectin content, but apples are commonly considered the highest.

    This is why all the old books on cider making refer to a condition called “apple palsey” – it’s the massively painfull hangover from the high methanol content. In order to prevent this (I’m sure distilling the pectin turns it into methanol) distillers must fully clarify any fruit wine before cooking it. Rather than use clarifiers, put the wine into 2 or 4 liter plastic jugs (only filled half full) and freeze them solid, then thaw them out, this will result in perfectly clear (and chill- stabilized) wine ready for distilling. After the thawing is complete or maybe as much as a week after, the wine will be crystal clear.

Stephen Alexander reports that commercial spirits contain small levels of methanol. ‘Food Chemistry’ by Belitz more methanol is produced in fruit fermentation than in grains. Brewers do not remove the methanol in beer and wine because methanol is not especially toxic at low concentrations. You are looking at between 0.4%-1% methanol in wines and brandies and smaller amounts in beers. Distillers remove almost all the methanol in most cases. Ever notice how vodka produces clean hangovers and wines (particularly reds) give you very nasty hangovers? Methanol. That, and dehydration!

Methanol is an especially nasty type of alcohol because the body tries to break it down the same way it metabolizes, or breaks down, ethanol, the type of alcohol in beer, wine and other drinks. Metabolizing ethanol produces chemicals less toxic to the body than alcohol. Unfortunately, if the same chemical action is performed on methanol the result is formic acid, lactic acid and formaldehyde.

Formaldehyde attacks nerve cells, especially the optic nerve and can damage the liver and kidneys. Formic acid and lactic acid also attack the kidneys and liver. Most people who have drunk methanol die of severe and sudden kidney and liver failure.

Chronic methanol drinking will cause optical damage. The stories of moonshine causing blindness comes from U.S. prohibition times where some bootleggers used to cut moonshine with methylated spirits to increase profit.

Gregory writes:

    It isn’t the yeast that controls methanol, it’s what you’re fermenting. I believe yeast has very limited metabolic pathways around methanol. Quoting from http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/jul2000/965090996.Bc.r.html –

    “Basically it can be produced biologically in 2 ways; through the oxidation of methane by methane monooxygenase, or by the reduction of formaldehyde, by methanol dehydrogenase (and this reaction normally works in the reverse direction).

    It’s true that some methanol can be produced during fermentation, but this is not derived from the ethanol or by carbohydrate oxidation. It is produced in small amounts, either by non-enzymatic reactions or through the reduction of formaldehyde.”

    Methane isn’t present in our washes, so the culprit is formaldehyde. I believe the pectins in fruit are methylated and can break down in the wash into formaldehyde. But so long as your wash has only pure fermentable carbohydrates, you can expect essentially zero methanol. There’s a bit more in this discussion of methanol here: http://yarchive.net/med/methanol_poisoning.html

    Ethyl acetate, OTOH, is produced spontaneously whenever acetate is present with ethanol. There are several possible sources of acetate during fermentation. In general, acetate is formed by oxidation of ethanol. (In fact, acetate is the ‘end-product’ of our own metabolism of ethanol). In fermentation, oxidation of ethanol into acetate can happen as a result of desperate yeast metabolizing its own ethanol, or by contamination with other yeasts or bacteria.

Adolescent Teen Drug Rehabs

In the mind of a young person, the risk of using drugs has many dimensions. Not only do teens consider physical risk, but also emotional (acting inappropriately, or getting depressed), social/relational, and aspirational. Physical risks include addiction, while social risks include disappointing friends or family, and loosing friends. Aspirational risks include loosing a job, or getting in trouble with the law.
All of these perceived risks -physical, emotional, social, and aspirational – are different with each drug, and contributing factors include things like anti-drug campaigns and parental involvement, including discussions about the risks of drug use.

Click a State Find Adolescent Teen Drug Rehabs:

Teens show remarkable resilience to the troubles of addiction, and when given professional and appropriate assistance, respond with great changes in behaviors and attitudes. Growing up is hard, teens are vulnerable, and sometimes they need a little help. Once an addiction presents there is little point in willing it away, and substance abuse problems very rarely get better on their own. Teens respond far better to treatment when they get it early, and waiting for too long before taking action only entrenches addiction, and increases the difficulties of treatment. Teen substance abusers can get better; they want to lead a great life and hunger to fill all the promise of their potential. Don’t let an early addiction derail their lives, get them help, and get them better. they’ll thank you for it.

A Quality of Life approach for clients and their families.

Where your experience will exceed your expectations

Any St. Louis rehabilitation center can provide treatment; MIA provides the difference. There are many drug rehab centers in Missouri, but very few of these rehab centers compare to Midwest Institute for Addiction’s facilities and programs. This differentiation goes beyond our comprehensive, individualized, and evidence based treatment model and focuses on the quality of services that we offer. There is a lack of separation in the minds of professional service providers when considering the difference between a product offered and the service that coincides with that product. The MIA difference is the ability to distinguish our product and service and offer quality services that coincide with our quality treatment. Clients entering our rehab facilities experience the responsiveness, adaptability, accessibility, and compassion that separate our rehab in St. Louis from other rehabilitation centers and provide an environment nurturing recovery and wellness. Client and family satisfaction is important to our addiction treatment team, because each client is at the epicenter of what we do. MIA’s framework and culture are second to none.

Clients are provided medical, psychiatric, and behavioral services that include visits with our medical doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, individual therapists, family and couple therapists, group therapists, dietitian, health and wellness experts, mindfulness and meditation experts, and more. In conjunction with these services, clients undergo continual medical monitoring with toxicology and blood work, psychological assessments, medication management including Suboxone and Vivitrol®, and additional ancillary services. Our clients receive unlimited services, unlike many programs, while they are attending our alcohol and drug rehab St Louis centers and are entitled to a lifetime of relapse prevention once they complete our program.

A Quality of Life Approach

Unlike other drug rehab centers in Missouri our rehab in St. Louis offers a complete continuum of care (inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment) that goes beyond alcohol and drug use alone. The MIA approach focuses on “quality of life”, by addressing various elements of our clients circumstances including physical health, psychiatric health, family health, social health, financial health, legal issues, occupational issues, and of course alcohol and drug use. Outcomes and assessments of MIA clients are based on these elements; we can identify the severity and change to identify areas of need for each individual which shapes that client’s treatment.

What This Means to You

So what does this mean for you and your family? Our rehab center provides evidence-based treatment delivered by some of the most experienced providers in the St. Louis area. We deliver quality services at times that are convenient to you because we understand you have other obligations; this translates into weekdays and weekends, as well as times when other rehab facilities are closed. MIA is always accessible by phone and in-person to ensure the highest level of support possible. We take your care seriously always advocating for our clients and their families. Our array of unlimited services means a treatment process rich in quality rather than a minimal approach. Contact our team today to see the MIA difference for yourself.

What Are the Benefits of Water on Liver Detoxification?

by CHRISTINE GARVIN Last Updated: Oct 09, 2015

Christine Garvin is a certified nutrition educator and holds a Master of Arts in holistic health education. She is co-editor of Brave New Traveler and founder/editor of Living Holistically. with a sense of humor. When she is not out traveling the world, she is busy writing, doing yoga and performing hip-hop and bhangra.

Overview

Water makes up a large part of the body, and is essential for your survival. It makes sense, then, that drinking a lot of water is important during liver detoxification. Water flushes the liver tissues, aiding in removing toxins, and also assists the kidneys during a liver detox, so the liver can focus on its own cleansing. Adding lemon to water also helps in the detoxification process, stimulating bile to remove toxins.

Consult your doctor before beginning any detoxification program.

Flushes Liver Tissues

One of the main benefits of water for the liver is that it flushes out the tissues of the liver. Although research has shown that herbs, such as milk thistle, can improve liver function, it is water that flushes toxins out of the liver to be removed via the skin and bowels, the Mayo Clinic reports. Linda Page, author of Healthy Healings Detoxification: Programs to Cleanse, Purify and Renew, recommends drinking eight glasses of water a day to fully clear toxins from the body. Consult your doctor before using any herbal remedy to self-treat any condition.

Assists Kidneys During Liver Detox

Another benefit of drinking water for the liver is that it allows kidneys to filter properly. The kidneys and liver are intimately connected, and, Ann Louise Gittleman writes in her book Living Beauty Detox Program, adequate water assists the kidneys in filtering waste products so that the liver can focus on metabolizing its own waste. Gittleman recommends drinking more than eight glasses of water to help the kidneys take care of their functions.

Lemon in Water Increases Detoxification

Adding lemon to water first thing in the morning may help with liver detoxification. Besides containing vitamin C and other antioxidants, Dr. Liliana Stadler Mitrea writes in Natural Medicine Mosaic, lemon juice in water stimulates gall bladder contractions. These contractions allow bile from the liver, which accumulated toxins overnight, to flow to the duodenum, in the small intestine, and from there out of the body.

ALCOHOL ADDICTION and How it Works

Alcohol Addiction

It is often difficult to determine the difference between “Social Drinking” and “Alcohol Addiction .” Some indications that you might need alcohol abuse rehab include the time of day that drinking begins, the frequency of drinks and the amount consumed. These and other factors about the way you use alcohol can all be warning signs. When you start looking for alcoholism signs in others or even yourself, it is important to be brutally honest about the behaviors. At Valiant Recovery, we offer assistance with a number of substance abuse issues, including drug and alcohol help. Our individualized care plans mean that we personalize our alcohol rehab program for each of our clients, making sure to keep it balanced with experiential therapies. We are not your typical alcohol abuse treatment center as we strive for more than just the elimination of alcohol but rather balancing the outside life so the addiction can be corrected, not just the symptom which results in alcoholism signs .

If you need help, please call us 1.877.618.6464

How Alcohol Addiction Works

Alcohol Addiction does not happen overnight, for most people it happens over years of subtly increasing use of alcohol. Often, it happens so slowly that you have no idea you are becoming addicted. It is important to watch for the alcoholism signs early on in your own life and in the lives of those you care about. Alcohol is absorbed by the blood and enters the brain, attaching itself to the receptors in the brain and slowing down the central nervous system. Extended alcohol abuse damages these receptors, making it difficult for the mind and body to function normally and properly. Greater receptor damage leads to a greater dependency on alcohol. Unfortunately, the body is meanwhile developing a tolerance to drinking. Now, the person has to consume more to obtain the same effect. This leads to stronger drinks or combining drugs with alcohol. The practice of combining drugs (prescription or recreational) with alcohol is very dangerous. It can result in overdosing or death.

The most destructive and devastating part of Alcohol Addiction is the physical dependency on alcohol. The process of withdrawal is of primary concern in alcohol treatment programs. Withdrawal for someone who is alcohol dependent can be accompanied by seizures and even death. Medically supervised detoxification is the recommended approach to dependency and withdrawing. This can only be done at a qualified alcohol abuse treatment center. There are medications that can be used to help reduce the effects and symptoms that a person may experience. After the ‘detox’ process the alcohol dependent individual should be enrolled in an alcohol rehab program, like the one here at Valiant Recovery. It is crucial to keep an eye on the alcoholism signs in order to notice if there has been any regression in their treatment plan.

There are a vast number of issues and aspects to the Alcohol abuse treatment process.

Alcoholics Anonymous (‘AA’) is an example of a well-known program which comes to mind for most people. A key aspect of such alcohol rehab programs is the “12 step program” originally introduced by AA. At Valiant Recovery we also incorporate the “12 step program,” along with other effective methods.

Unlike most alcohol rehabilitation centers, we take a personalized approach to all of our treatments. We design a customized plan of care around each individual. Every person has their different and individual needs for a successful treatment process. We are committed to providing for each of these needs and addictions. At Valiant Recovery we emphasize one-on-one counseling in our alcohol addiction recovery program to deal with personal issues and allow for diagnosis of any concurrent disorders. We are trained to recognize any and all alcoholism signs. If any additional disorders are discovered they are incorporated into the individual program for that person.

At Valiant Recovery our clients care and recovery is our priority. We know that when you can sense genuine concern from caregivers, your treatment time will be more positive and productive.

At Valiant Recovery our alcohol rehab programs consist of a balance of different therapy models. These include experiential therapy which is the use of daily activities such as nature walks, skiing, golfing or horseback riding. These activities are enjoyable and provide positive and healthy experiences of a life worth living. There is more to the process at our alcohol abuse treatment center than just talking or the absence of alcohol.

Valiant Recovery understands that it takes a serious commitment and several months before the addiction to alcohol is completely gone. We will provide continuing care and relapse prevention plans to help our clients live a free and sober life. Our post-care alcohol abuse rehab counselors will help you find post treatment support in your home town.

There are many signs which may indicate that you or a loved one needs alcohol abuse treatment. Many individuals with an alcohol problem use the excuse of social drinking, but if you are drinking alone or drinking on a daily basis then it may be time to seek help. Watch for varying degrees of alcoholism signs in yourself and your loved ones. It may not be clear in the beginning but that is the best time for your loved one or yourself to go to an alcohol abuse treatment center to achieve the most positive results.

Our staff at Valiant Recovery want you to understand that you do not have to be alone in this ordeal and we are here to help you or a loved one you care for get the treatment that is needed. Our wish is to help our clients recover from their addictions and damaging behaviors with the understanding that recovery was a crucial step to living a much happier life.

A Center for Addiction Recovery, CFAR, is an accredited rehab center, providing the most up-to-date Medical Detox, Intensive Outpatient and Residential Addiction Treatment Programs since 2002. Our addiction treatment programs provide treatment for male and female clients who are struggling with alcohol, drugs, prescription drugs and process addictions such as compulsive gambling and eating disorders.

CFAR embraces traditional and holistic approaches in the treatment of addiction which includes the non-12 Step SMART RECOVERY, and the 12 Step Recovery Program. All addiction treatment programs at A Center for Addiction Recovery focus on treating the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of our clients’ recovery, helping them to identify and address the root causes that may have triggered their addictive behaviors. There are many instances that a past trauma has played a major role in someone’s addiction which in turns affects his or her treatment and recovery. In such cases we utilize the most promising trauma treatment approach, Rapid Resolution Therapy (RRT), which is exclusively delivered at A Center for Addiction Recovery by the founder and the developer of this therapy, Dr. Jon Connelly.

During RRT clients do not become overwhelmed or feel helpless by re-living the traumatic event. Neither do they go through hypnosis. They are able to clear their trauma while awake and present. Once the mind is clear from the trauma, clients have a far greater chance of achieving a successful recovery. With one-half to two-thirds of people with addictions suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and about the same proportion of people with PTSD having developed an addiction, CFAR finds it absolutely essential to treat both conditions effectively at the same time to provide clients with the best chance for a successful recovery.

All of our addiction treatment therapies are delivered by our experienced, caring and non-judgmental addiction specialists which consist of physicians, psychiatrists, nursing professionals, licensed social workers and mental health counselors. All treatment services are provided in our 12 acre facility without any need to transport clients to different locations for different therapies. This allows our clients to comfortably transition from detox to residential treatment under the supervision of the staff that has got to know them and follows their treatment closely through various stages of recovery.

Relieving Stress During Addiction Treatment

As part of CFAR’s innovative approach in the treatment of addiction, we combine medical detox with biofeedback sessions. This powerful treatment approach is delivered at our Serenity Lounge, where a combination of music, choreographed imagery, vibrations and bi-neural beats are utilized to induce a natural meditative state. By utilizing biofeedback therapy, clients practice deep-breathing and engage in positive emotional thoughts. The “Serenity” biofeedback sessions are proven to be a very successful tool in aiding the process of mental and emotional healing in individuals who are starting their recovery. Biofeedback is one of the many holistic therapies that A Center for Addiction Recovery offers to promote relaxation and stress release. These therapies include but are not limited to: Yoga, Meditation, Massage Therapy, Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Personal Training and sports activities such as Basketball and Volleyball.

What really happens to your body when you stop drinking alcohol, what

What really happens to your body when you stop drinking alcohol?

There are plenty of reasons to quit drinking alcohol. Perhaps you can’t party as hard as you once did, and the hangovers are getting worse. Maybe you’ve developed a beer belly. Possibly, there’s a deeper issue at play and you don’t want your drinking to get out of hand before it’s a problem—unless it already is and you just don’t realize it. Whatever your circumstances are, you’re here, and you’re ready to kick the sauce. Let’s breakdown what happens to your body once you quit drinking.

The first 48 hours after you stop drinking may be the biggest detox hurdle. Depending how much you were drinking, this may feel like a hangover or it may be more than that. Withdrawal symptoms can include sweating, a rise in blood pressure, shakiness or tremors, and insomnia as well as the usual hangover symptoms like headache and nausea.

You probably saw that one coming. If you’ve been drinking alcohol regularly, your body is going to take note when it’s gone. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, cravings are to be expected when your drinking behavior changes. The equilibrium your body created to adjust to alcohol in your system will no longer exist. That first day you go without a drink, especially if you’ve been drinking every day, is likely going to be filled with cravings for alcohol. For some, cravings can last weeks, months, or years depending on the amount and regularity of alcohol use prior to quitting.

If you are a heavy drinker, you may not be out of the woods after 48 hours. Between 48-72 hours is generally when the onset of ‘delirium tremens’ occurs for some. Delirium tremens is sudden confusion that may be paired with hallucinations, shaking, irregular heart rate, and an increase in body temperature so high that it can sometimes lead to seizures. If you are a heavy drinker, it is important to detox from alcohol under the supervision of a medical professional as the withdrawal from quitting cold turkey can lead to death.

While hangover and withdrawal symptoms can be uncomfortable, and at times dangerous, the good news is that after peaking at around 72 hours after the last drink, the last of these symptoms will generally start to subside. At this stage your body begins to create a new equilibrium that does not include alcohol and its effects.

While your body will have adjusted after a week of not drinking, there may be psychological effects of detox that last longer. Some people report feelings of anger and aggression, general anxiety and depression, nightmares and difficulty sleeping, and even decreased libido. This is in part because alcohol use affects neurotransmitters that are implicated in mood, such as serotonin. There may also be underlying issues for which alcohol has been used to self-medicate. Often the experiences and emotions that were being ignored during alcohol use rise to the surface after you stop drinking. During this time it can be helpful to seek out counseling, either individual or in a group, to handle these emotions and experiences.

It may take a week or two, but after you quit drinking you’ll ultimately sleep better. According to research, drinking increases brain wave patterns that usually happen when you’re awake. In normal deep sleep, the brain activity is in delta waves. Consuming alcohol causes brain activity during sleep to happen in alpha waves. Alpha waves are generally only seen in brain activity when we’re awake, but resting. We all know that resting on the couch isn’t the same thing as getting a good night’s sleep, so it’s no wonder that people who drink regularly often feel tired and fatigued during the day.

You may be thinking, “But I always fall asleep faster when I drink!” That may be true, but it’s only for a little while. A review of several studies found that even if alcohol helps you fall asleep more quickly and deeply at first, the quality of your sleep suffers overall, leaving you feeling tired the next day. So while you may have a hard time falling asleep at first when you stop drinking, you’ll be more refreshed the next day.

You’ll lose weight

If you stop drinking and change nothing else about your diet or level of activity, you’re likely to lose weight. It’s partially the simple concept of calorie counting—alcohol, especially beer, contains a lot of calories. A single IPA may have as many as 200 calories; and a margarita could have roughly 300. If you suddenly drop hundreds of calories a day, the pounds will drop off over time. Plus, you’ll overeat less. Research shows a link between alcohol consumption and heightened senses. Being intoxicated sends the hypothalamus in the brain into high gear, which makes the body more sensitive to food smells. That, combined with alcohol’s famous ability to remove inhibitions, leads to extra eating.

Your skin will look better

Alcohol is a diuretic, meaning it causes water to exit the body. Not so much “cause” as “force.” In short, it’s severely dehydrating. It decreases the production of a hormone that helps the body absorb and hold water. This is why water is needed during a hangover. Over time, less water in the body leads to noticeable effects, such as parched and dry-looking skin, rosy red cheeks, dandruff, and eczema. After kicking the sauce, you should see a vast improvement in the quality of your skin.

Blood sugar levels return to normal

When the body is processing alcohol, it stops efficiently maintaining proper blood sugar levels. Not only does it get in the way of your body accessing glucose stores but it decreases the effectiveness of insulin, the hormone that regulates blood glucose levels. That leads to wildly out of control blood sugar levels, which over time can lead to type II diabetes. Blood sugar levels often normalize when alcohol is no longer a factor—in studies, they’ve been shown to drop by as much as 16 percent.

Your chances of developing several forms of cancer decrease

The National Cancer Institute has linked heavy drinking with an increased risk of several cancers, among them: mouth, liver, breast, colon, and rectal cancer. Without alcohol in the body, that’s one less carcinogen to worry about.

Liver fat will decrease

In a small study conducted by New Scientist and the Institute for Liver and Digestive Health at University College London Medical School, abstaining from alcohol for a month led to an average of 15 percent decrease in liver fat (with some individuals seeing a 20 percent decrease). This is important because fat accumulation in the liver can lead to liver damage and eventually liver disease.

Your immune system will work better

Excessive drinking has been linked to many immune-related health effects. These include higher susceptibility to pneumonia and other respiratory disorders, greater likelihood of sepsis and certain cancers, a higher instance of postoperative complications, and poor wound healing, among many others.

Research suggests this is because alcohol overexerts the immune system. In fact, some studies have found that a single episode of binge alcohol intoxication leads to exertion on the immune system and inflammation. The good news is that it can be reversed. After you stop drinking, your immune system’s response will be strengthened over time.

You have a better chance of conceiving

If you’re trying to have kids, your chances will be better once you stop drinking because alcohol reduces fertility. In one study, healthy women who drank 10 or more drinks a week decreased their odds of conceiving to 34%. While you may be thinking that you’ll be fine because you don’t drink that much, even moderate drinking affects fertility. In the same study, women who drank between one and five drinks per week (less than one drink per day) decreased their odds of conception to 61%.

Brain damage could be reversed

Extended alcohol use and abuse can negatively impact your brain. According to research, alcohol’s most significant impact is on the areas of the brain critical to learning and impulse control. While some of these changes may be permanent, especially for those who abuse alcohol for an extended period of time, there is some hope.

According to the National Institutes of Health, abstaining from alcohol over several months to a year may lead to a partial correction of some structural brain changes that were caused by alcohol and may also reverse negative effects on problem-solving, memory, and attention.

It may be hard

If you are a moderate drinker, you may be able to quit on your own without too much trouble. If you’re a regular or heavy drinker, however, you may find it much more difficult. Both internal and external triggers may lead you to want to start drinking again. No matter your current level of drinking, there are many resources available if you want to stop, including a state by state resource guide. Whether you utilize an online support group, attend meetings, or seek individual counseling, quitting drinking is possible for everyone.

How Much Does Rehab Cost

How Much Does Rehab Cost?

As you’ve probably guessed, the answer is complicated. Rehab costs are determined by location, types of programs offered, amenities and more. But don’t be lulled into paying too much for drug rehab because you think you need to have 5 star hotel quality accommodations.Just because the treatment center is on the beach in Malibu – doesn’t mean you’re getting the best care. You need to pay for the best treatment, not the best view. Just like you would want to pick the best doctors to treat your cancer, you need to apply the same to drug rehab.In addition, many rehabs use the 30 day treatment model that often comes with lower success rates. Lower success rates mean patients relapse and have a need to return to treatment – which now raises the overall cost significantly. Monthly rehab costs can range from 15k a month to 45k depending on the location, types of treatments are offered, and more. If we drop the monthly cost to 10k, assume that the patient will experience relapse after participating in a 30 day program and need to repeat treatment at least 5x, the total cost is $50,000.

The good news is, recovery treatment for drug and alcohol addiction doesn’t have to be that costly and there are treatments that have a higher success rate, which means relapse may not happen.

When You Call Be Prepared To Give Information On:

  • Location and personal information
  • Addiction history
  • Mental health issues
  • Insurance coverage (if covered)

This confidential information is critical for our treatment specialists to design a payment plan and treatment program that will fit your needs.

Kinds Of Addiction Treatment Plans

Studies have shown that merely attending a 30 day rehab program is not enough to treat addiction for the long term. It’s important that you understand what types of addiction treatment programs are out there so that you can be sure you’re going to the right one. It is imperative that you attend a program that utilizes all four levels of treatment. While you may not need to be admitted into the more intensive parts of treatment, a center that offers a comprehensive program is one that shows a commitment to your health and well-being and a dedication to your positive outcome.

Levels Of Treatment Include:

  • Medical Detoxification
    Medical Detox is the first step in the recovery process during which the body is cleansed of the toxins leftover by drug abuse. The product of a successful medical detox is that the person, in a more comfortable way, no longer has any medical risks caused by no longer taking the drug or drinking alcohol. This patient is ready to move on to residential treatment.
  • Residential / Inpatient Treatment
    Individuals on the path to recovery must be given the appropriate time, space, and tools needed to focus on themselves and their health. Inpatient care is a highly effective form of addiction treatment because it offers clients a safe, structured, and sober environment, away from everyday distractions and temptations.
  • Outpatient Treatment
    Outpatient care is an extension of an already successful inpatient treatment program. Patients return to their own environments after drug or alcohol treatment, and must voluntarily abstain from drug or alcohol use, which requires a greater amount of diligence and means a higher chance of relapse. Clients are provided with a strong support network of non-using peers and sponsors that provide a new, positive element of social change in an addict’s life and facilitates long-term recovery.
  • Transitional / Sober Living
    After rehab care is an important part of why a patient stays off drugs and alcohol. Transitional living offers patients the chance to practice new life skills in a sober environment. They are monitored by staff and still have random drug testing. Clients also gain privileges back like cell phones, cars and are also required to have a job. This experience is vital to a patient who can experience stress, practices his/her new way of life and can be successful without returning to drugs and alcohol.

When Evaluating Treatment Providers, Look Out For:

  • Unwillingness to work with your financial situation
    Beware of the admissions center who is unwilling to work with your financial situation. A good call center will always be able to point you in the right direction for treatment, no matter what your financial situation is.
  • Reasonable pricing, not just free services
    Free services can mean treatment isn’t a priority. There should be a reasonable cost for an important decision like going to rehab. Don’t just go for a free service because it’s free. Go to the right program for you.
  • Work in exchange for room and board
    It’s important to work. But you need to work on yourself most importantly during treatment. Be careful about programs that require you to work for the organization in exchange for room and board.
  • Certified leadership and counselors
    Be sure that counselors are certified. There are centers who pass off their former patients as counselors. Find out who the leaders are at the organization. What kind of certifications or training do they have in addiction or teaching life skills?

Just Remember… 117 People Die Each Day From Drug Addiction.

You owe it to yourself or your loved one to make the call. Paying for a sound rehab treatment program is not complicated nor does it have to break the bank.

The positive results from attending a good rehab program will be worth the effort in the long run. An individual struggling with addiction cannot begin the recovery process without first obtaining the help they need to overcome addiction.

Alcohol and Drug Counseling Overview

Alcohol and Drug Counseling

The Alcohol and Drug Counseling Program (ADC) prepares graduates for temporary or full licensure with the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health as Alcohol and Drug Counselors.

The program is designed for students who want to learn more about chemical dependency issues and/or whom desire a career as an addiction counselor. Students gain valuable classroom knowledge in 12 core areas of addiction counseling theory, practice, and skill development. Through the required practicum placements in a licensed chemical dependency facility students gain valuable and necessary practical experience under the supervision of a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

The program does not license a student as an alcohol and drug counselor. It does provide the minimum college coursework and practicum opportunities needed to apply for licensure in the State of Minnesota. Upon successful completion of the Alcohol and Drug Counseling Program at RCTC, students are eligible to sit for the IC RC national exam and can apply for at least a temporary licensure with the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health. Graduates whom hold a bachelor s degree or higher are eligible to apply for full permanent licensure.

The curriculum provides students with 19 credits of specific alcohol and drug counseling coursework in at least 12 core competency areas including: foundational theory, screening, intake, orientation, assessment, treatment planning, counseling skills, case management, crisis intervention, client education, referral, record keeping, consultation, ethics, multicultural aspects, pharmacology, and co-occurring disorders. An 880-hour practicum is the pinnacle of the academic experience.

RCTC offers an Associate in Science Degree in Alcohol and Drug Counseling. The degree includes the professional core of addiction coursework as well as the necessary general education credits. RCTC also offers a Certificate in Alcohol and Drug Counseling. The certificate option is designed for students whom have an Associate degree or higher and focuses on the professional core of addiction coursework.

Students can enroll on a part-time or full-time basis and may begin either fall or spring semester. Currently all but two of the Human Service (HS) Alcohol and Drug Counseling (ADC) core classes are open to any enrolled RCTC students. The two HS ADC core classes that are not open to all RCTC students are the clinical practicums. Students interested in accessing the clinical practicums must complete a PRACTICUM application form and meet all of the requirements outlined in the form.

Graduates of the program may apply for temporary or permanent licensure as Alcohol and Drug Counselors through the MN Board of Behavioral Health. Graduates may also work directly in the addictions field as chemical dependency technicians, case managers, or residential managers.

Rochester Community and Technical College is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission.
The RCTC Alcohol and Drug Counseling AS Degree articulates with the Winona State University

The U.S. Department of Education s (USDE) gainful employment regulations require disclosure of certain program information for programs that lead to certificates or diplomas and are financial aid eligible.

Groups and structured activities involve skills training, team building, preparing meals, and recreational therapy. These pursuits enhance daily living skills, build self-mastery and esteem, and provide a sense of autonomy and membership in a community.

Teens and young adults can be referred to the program from home or any level of care, including inpatient, partial hospital, and outpatient. We offer a full range of services, including assessment and consultation, group therapy, skills training, education, medication evaluation and management, and family therapy. As part of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. the program offers access to care and services throughout McLean Hospital.

At McLean SouthEast we also offer day program services, the McLean SouthEast Adolescent Partial Hospital Program, for teens who require intensive, structured treatment but are able to manage living at home.

    Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS); Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)

    Home / Pregnancy Complications / Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS); Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)

    Drinking alcohol during pregnancy can result in a number of physical, neurological and mental conditions that range in severity. These fall under the term “Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD), the most known of which are Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) and Fetal Alcohol Effects (FAE). Fetal Alcohol Effects can also be separated into two different categories: Alcohol-Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder (ARND) and Alcohol-Related Birth Defects (ARBD).

    What is Fetal Alcohol Syndrome?

    Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is one of the most common causes of mental retardation and is the only one that is 100% preventable. The effects are irreversible and last a lifetime.

    The effects of FAS include mental retardation, malformations of the skeletal system and major organ systems (specifically the heart and brain), inhibited growth, central nervous system complications, poor motor skills, mortality, and difficulty with learning, memory, social interaction, attention span, problem solving, speech and/or hearing.

    There are also facial features that are characteristic of babies with FAS. These include small eyes, short or upturned nose, flat cheeks, and thin lips. These features fade as the child grows up, but the child still has to cope with numerous other difficulties.

    What are Fetal Alcohol Effects?

    The two categories for Fetal Alcohol Effects are Alcohol-Related Neurodevelopmental Disorder (ARND) and Alcohol-Related Birth Defects (ARBD):

    ARND describes the mental and behavioral impairments such as learning disabilities, poor school performance, poor impulse control, and problems with memory, attention and/or judgment.

    ARBD describes the malformations of the skeletal system and major organ systems such as the heart, kidneys, bones, and/or auditory system.

    How is Fetal Alcohol Syndrome different from Fetal Alcohol Effects?

    Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is a result of high doses of alcohol consumption during pregnancy such as binge drinking and/or drinking on a regular basis. Fetal Alcohol Effects are a result of moderate drinking throughout pregnancy. The results of both FAS and FAE are irreversible and lifelong.

    Is any amount of alcohol safe to drink?

    There is no amount of alcohol that is safe to consume during pregnancy, but the more alcohol that is consumed, the greater the risk to your developing baby.

    How can I prevent FAS and FAE?

    Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Effects are 100% preventable for a woman who completely abstains from alcohol during pregnancy. Therefore, if you are aware that you are pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or think you could be pregnant, you should not consume any amount of alcohol.

    For more information on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, contact the National Organization on Fetal Alcohol Syndrome at 1-800-66-NOFAS (666-6327) or contact The SAMHSA FASD Center for Excellence at 1-866-786-7327

    Governor Herbert signs controversial bill making Utah s DUI level the lowest in the nation

    SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Governor Gary Herbert has signed a bill lowering Utah’s DUI level from .08 to .05, making it the lowest in the nation.

    The governor signed the bill late Thursday, hours after announcing to reporters his intention to make it law.

    “My responsibility is to evaluate and decide whether in fact going to .05 is in fact good policy. That’s my charge, is it good policy? And I’m here to announce that after thorough analysis that I believe it is good policy and that this new policy will in fact save lives,” he said at his monthly news conference on KUED.

    However, Gov. Herbert said he would call a special session to address “unintended consequences” of the law, which could also include delaying it’s implementation beyond 2019. Some lawmakers (including House Speaker Greg Hughes) have said they would prefer to wait until other states move to .05 so Utah is not alone.

    The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Norm Thurston, R-Provo, told FOX 13 he was thrilled by the governor’s decision.

    “We’re first in a lot of things and one thing we can be first in is prioritizing highway safety,” he said.

    The decision to make the change to Utah’s drunk driving law came after a lot of lobbying against the bill. In numbers provided to FOX 13 under a request to the governor’s office, 3,818 phone calls, emails and letters had been received as of Thursday morning asking for HB155 to be vetoed (including about 1,000 form emails), while 444 called or wrote in favor of the bill.

    Gov. Herbert said he did not believe the policy would hurt tourism as hospitality leaders have claimed, noting that much of the world has adopted a .05 Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) level.

    “If we look at the world, we’re not weird,” he said, adding that Utah could sell the DUI bill as making our state safer than others.

    Restaurant and hospitality groups — including the Utah Restaurant Association and the Salt Lake Area Restaurant Association — met with the governor to urge him to veto the bill. They insisted they did not condone drinking and driving, but feared it would harm their business by scaring people into staying home, fearful that one drink could land them in jail for DUI.

    “Any downturn in our sales from people who decide to go to a different state, don’t want to come to Utah or don’t want to go out to eat negatively impacts our sales which affects taxes in Utah, which affects the ski industry, the tourism industry, the hospitality industry and the restaurant industry,” said Doug Hofeling, the Chief Operating Officer of Wasatch Beers, which owns Squatter’s, a popular local brewery.

    Ski Utah CEO Nathan Rafferty told FOX 13 on Thursday that he did not believe HB155 would help lure tourists.

    “People have a lot of options when they go on vacation somewhere. It doesn’t give us a competitive advantage, that’s for sure,” he said. “We appreciate the governor’s thoughtfulness on how he approached this difficult issue. We are going to work with the governor’s office and Utah Office of Tourism to make Utah not only a safe place to visit as a tourist but a desirable location.”

    The American Beverage Institute took out full-page ads in USA Today and Salt Lake City’s daily newspapers opposing the bill and indicating Utah would lose tourism to Colorado.

    Supporters of the bill pushed it as a matter of public safety, by insisting no one should ever drink and drive.

    “Lowering the blood alcohol content limit reduces the number of deaths and injuries from alcohol-related crashes, and it will not result in negative consequences for tourism,” said Boyd Matheson, the president of the conservative think tank Sutherland Institute, which backed the bill.

    “Opponents of HB 155 are attempting to make this law about Utah’s public image – about limiting the choices of citizens and visitors to the state. HB 155 will have no impact on what or how much individuals drink – it is focused on protecting lives by ensuring those who choose to drink also choose not to drive impaired. We applaud Gov. Herbert’s decision to sign this bill into law.”

    If a special session is called, FOX 13 is told lawmakers could water down HB155 to delay when it becomes effective and its overall impact if someone is ever arrested with a .05 BAC. There could be a reduction in penalty to avoid someone losing their job or having a significant impact to car insurance. Other states have had a tiered system for DUI and the level of BAC someone is convicted of having.

    Rep. Thurston said he was open to making some changes.

    “Again, everything’s on the table,” he said. “Nothing’s ever off the table with the legislature.”

    Finding San Francisco Rehabilitation Programs There are a number of factors that could influence your success in a San Francisco rehab program. One of the most important factors could be your willingness to make changes.

If you’re truly ready to recover, there are many San Francisco addiction treatment programs that can help you. Benefits of Enrolling Into a Recovery Program

    It’s easy to find studies and statistics that demonstrate the benefits of rehabilitation programs for addiction. If you’ve been reading about addiction and how rehabilitation works, it’s likely that you’ve seen several of these studies in the past. If the facts haven’t yet swayed you, perhaps the story from an addict in recovery might help. Norma says, “I had been dealing with addiction for about 20 years before I checked into rehab. I started in an inpatient program, and then moved to a sober living community in San Francisco for a few months. My life before rehab was nothing like it is now. I was living on the streets, spending all my money on drugs and hiding from the cops. Now, I have my own apartment and a decent job. I am healthy, happy and legal. Rehab did that for me.”

    There are several different types of San Francisco treatment centers that could help with your addiction. These are just a few of the options available:

    • Residential programs. where you’ll live in the facility and focus exclusively on getting well
    • Outpatient recovery program programs. where you’ll sleep at home but attend addiction programming courses during the day
    • Addiction counseling programs. in which you’ll meet with a therapist on a weekly basis
    • Sober living communities. in which you live with a group of other recovering addicts and you agree to attend your counseling sessions as scheduled

Many programs accept people from all across the country, and when the intensive portion of these programs is complete, people can access aftercare hope closer to home, with the help of their counselors. This might also be a great way for you to get the help you’ll need to beat your addiction.

    Video shows public defender asking trooper not to arrest him on DUI charge

    An Orange County assistant public defender who police said had a blood alcohol level two-and-a-half times the legal limit asked the trooper who pulled him over not to arrest him, according to video of the Jan. 28 arrest.

    “I’m one of the good ones. I am a good person,” said Derreck Quarles, 37, who was arrested on his birthday. He has been a member of the Florida Bar since September.

    Quarles faces a charge of driving under the influence of alcohol after registering at .213 and .211 on a breath test, according to police reports. The legal limit in Florida is 0.08.

    He was released on a $500 bond from the John E. Polk Correctional Facility in Seminole County, and his arraignment is set for Feb. 24.

    Quarles will continue to handle his regular caseload, said Robert Wesley, public defender for the Ninth Judicial Circuit.

    “As defense lawyers we believe in the presumption of innocence, letting the legal system run the full course and that people make errors,” Wesley said in an email. “My entire career I have sided with the notion that people can improve themselves, overcome bad choices and stupid acts and still have a seat at my table.”

    Quarles repeatedly asked Trooper Deborah Hawkins to take him home, saying he wanted to help people and that he would not drive drunk in the future.

    Hawkins declined, explaining that he was under arrest and that she was taking him to jail.

    “I know it’s hard to see this now, but you can use this,” Hawkins said. “You know you can. You’ll be able to teach people.”

    Shopping Addiction Help Treatment

    Shopping addiction, also called compulsive shopping and omniomania, is one of the most socially “acceptable” behavioural addictions in the world. Shopping is a normal part of life but it becomes a problem when people start feeling compelled to buy things they don’t need or even want, and find themselves getting a thrill or “rush” from the experience of shopping, both online and in stores.

    Some “shopaholics” may make an effort to stop but find themselves unable to stop spending money, which often leads to many financial difficulties. This in turn causes shame, guilt and anger, which makes the problem worse as shopping becomes a coping mechanism, and often causes relationships to break down.

    Symptoms of Shopping Addiction

    Do you know someone who is worrying you by exhibiting possible signs of having a shopping addiction? Try asking yourself the following questions.

    • Do they hide evidence of purchases like receipts, bags or even the items themselves, perhaps even throwing newly bought things away?
    • Are they preoccupied with shopping and tend to do it a lot at the expense of relationships and other commitments?
    • Do they stay out a lot of the time in shopping centres or spend a lot of time on their computer using online shopping sites?
    • Do they seem to be having problems with money but dismiss these or get angry if questioned about it?

    Do you know someone who is suffering from a shopping addiction? Call us now for free help and advice on how simple and easy it can be to get free of a shopping addiction and live a happier, healthier life.

    Live Free From Addiction

    Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers

    Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers

    Alcohol Abuse Treatment Centers

    Alcohol abuse is one of the most difficult addictions to admit having. Since alcohol is legal and socially acceptable it is very easy not to think that you have a problem. An alcoholic does not have to be staggering or have blackouts to be considered an alcoholic. There are many people with alcohol addiction that most people do not know about; these people are considered High Functioning  alcoholics. Alcohol abuse takes on many forms, from drinking in excess that they blackout or that they just need to have a drink to feel normal.

    Alcohol abuse is responsible for more deaths than crack, heroin addiction, and cocaine abuse combined. Alcohol detoxification is also one of the only detoxes that a person can die from because of seizures (this is why we HIGHLY suggest the right treatment center and not home remedies). Alcoholics are also harder to convince that they need to go to an alcohol addiction treatment center because most of them hold jobs and appear to be better off than hardcore drug users. It is important to understand how alcoholics think.

    Understanding Alcoholism

    An interesting thing to understand about alcoholism is that it is a choice that is made. If you read the book Alcoholics Anonymous  it is never mentioned in the entire book that you have a disease or a drinking problem. It tells you that you have a thinking problem and suffer from a sickness, illness, or malady. Alcoholism is not the problem the problem is the alcoholic. The alcohol abuse is just a symptom of what is really going on. To greatly increase the success of an alcoholic s chance of recovery they must go to a long term inpatient alcohol rehab.

    Some people will use medication to help with their addiction but there is little or no success. Drugs such as Antabuse are used to keep people from drinking or it will make them sick. This in no way fixes the problem and is a worthless attempt at a solution, since the addict will eventually just stop taking the drugs and relapse. In order for an alcoholic to recover from alcohol addiction they must change their behaviors and understand why they abuse alcohol (face their demons). As stated above alcohol is not the problem with alcoholics, the person is the problem, alcohol is just the solution.

    The Facts

    According to the National Council on Alcohol and Drug Dependence, NCADD. alcohol is the number one abused substance in the United States. It is the number one abused drug in the United States because it is very easy to obtain and in mass quantities. Not only do 1 in ever 12 adults suffer from alcohol dependency, but millions of Americans partake in binge drinking behaviors (5 or more drinks on an occasion). This behavior is very common amongst college aged adults. According to the National Institute of Health, NIH. 37.9 percent of college students partake in binge drinking and 12.2% of college students partake in heavy drinking (5 or more drinks on an occasion on 5 or more occasions per month). Alcoholism is a. epidemic that is seen across the nation. Here are some more facts about alcohol abuse:

    • In 2014, alcohol usage contributed to 88,000 deaths
    • 7 million children (more than 10 percent) live with at least one parent who has an alcohol dependency or alcohol abuse problem
    • Alcoholism ranks 3rd on the list of cause of death in the United States
    • Globally, alcohol has caused 3.3 million deaths in 2012
    • In a recent study, the presence of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorders (FASD) is anywhere from 20%-50% per 1,000 births

    Why use Sober Solutions?
    At Sober Solutions, we excel at finding the right treatment center for the person. Not every rehab center is a right fit. It is very important to make sure that the environment is just right to ensure a longer lasting sobriety, if a person does not feel comfortable they will either check out or just go through the motions and will relapse once they get out.

    Rather than you calling multiple rehab centers and giving information over and over again, you will call our counselors and then they will do the searching for you. You are in a hard situation let us help take some of the stress and get you or your loved one the help that is needed. It is a free service, so why not call?

    Long term addiction treatment vs short term

    When searching for an alcohol rehab it is important to consider long-term addiction treatment center. Very rarely can an alcoholic become sober by attending a short term addiction treatment center or an outpatient program. Unfortunately most professionals recommend outpatient facilities for alcoholics thinking it will work especially if the alcoholic has convinced them that they drink far less than they are willing to admit. This is why most people fail at their alcohol abuse recovery, they downplay the severity of the alcohol abuse. It is always a better outcome when alcoholics enter a treatment program that is at least 90 days, followed up with a strong aftercare program. Anybody can stay sober in the treatment center; it takes a lot of help to stay sober in the real world.

    People suffering from alcohol addiction face a greater challenge when leaving an alcohol rehab center because they face more triggers. Unlike drug abusers that have to revert back to illegal activities in the event of relapse, alcoholics can just enter a bar or stop at a liquor store and purchase their drug of choice legally. Relapse prevention is probably one of the most important parts of the alcoholic s battle plan after leaving the treatment center. One of the most effective approaches for relapse prevention is the cognitive rehab approach which is explained in this site. We also have more information about other types of Addiction Treatment Centers. If you feel you or someone you know suffers from alcoholism and needs an alcohol addiction treatment center call, we can help.

    Alcohol and Kidney Stones

    Kidney Stones are a Common Problem

    Kidney stones have plagued humans since the dawn of time. Archeologists have even found evidence of kidney stones in a mummy that is 7,000 years old. In most cases, these stones will pass out of the body without causing too many problems. Occasionally, they will lead to discomfort and potentially serious complications. Drinking alcohol is not believed to directly cause kidney stones, but it may make the situation worse. Moderate consumption of alcohol may reduce the risk of kidney stone formation.

    Importance of the Kidneys

    The kidneys can be found at the back of the abdomen. They are usually four inches in length and can be found on either side of the spine. These kidney-bean shaped organs have the important function of removing waste products from the blood. If this waste is not removed, the individual will become ill and eventually die. The kidneys also serve the vital function of removing excess water from the body in the form of urine.

    Kidney Stones Explained

    A kidney stone refers to a solid material that can form in this organ. It is a stone-like lump. It is also sometimes referred to as a renal calculus or nephrolithiasis. These stones can appear in one or both kidneys. The material for the stones comes from the waste that this organ is tasked with removing from the body. This waste can begin to accumulate as crystals that can eventually turn into stones.

    These are the four major types of kidney stones:

    * A uric acid stone develops when urine is too acidic. This can happen if people eat too much meat.
    * Calcium stones are the most common. People need to have calcium in their diet, but too much leads to accumulation in the kidneys and the formation of stones.
    * Cystine stones are made up from a chemical that is used by muscle and nerves. Some individuals seem to have inherited a predisposition to forming this rare type of stone.
    * A struvite stone can occur after people have had an infection. This type of stone is made up of ammonia and magnesium.

    Causes of Kidney Stones

    There are several factors that increase the risk for solid accumulations in the kidney. These are some of the most common:

    * A high-protein, low-fiber diet
    * Genetic predisposition to forming kidney stones
    * An overactive parathyroid gland, which increases the risk of developing calcium stones
    * Being a man aged between the age of 30 to 40
    * Suffering from a disease or conditions affecting the small intestine
    * A history of developing kidney stones
    * Leading a sedentary lifestyle
    * Contracting a kidney infection
    * Suffering from certain kinds of cancer
    * Undergoing chemotherapy
    * Suffering from gout. which affects the body’s ability to effectively break down chemicals
    * Having only one kidney
    * Frequently taking antacids and aspirin seem

    Symptoms of Kidney Stones

    These are some of the symptoms that people experience when they have kidney stones:

    * There can be blood in the urine caused by the stone scratching tissue as it passes out of the body.
    * The urine can also look a bit cloudy or have an unpleasant smell.
    * The person may experience pain or discomfort when passing a kidney stone. If people have extreme pain at their back or sides, they may need to seek medical attention.
    * The individual may experience fever and chills.
    * There may be a burning sensation when urinating
    * The person may experience nausea and vomiting.
    * There may be a need to urinate more frequently.
    * Feelings restless may set in.

    Renal Colic

    Renal colic occurs when a kidney stone begins to block the renal tract. The symptoms of this can include:

    * Painful urination
    * The need to urinate frequently
    * Nausea and vomiting

    Sometimes renal colic can lead to a kidney infection. The individual may then develop a high fever and generally appear unwell.

    Alcohol and Kidneys Stones

    Excessive alcohol intake does not directly cause kidney stones, but it can certainly exacerbate the problem. The reason for this is that alcohol acts as a diuretic. This means that it causes people to pass so much urine that they can become dehydrated. Alcohol also interferes with the body’s ability to excrete uric acid. Conversely, some studies suggest that moderate intake of beer and wine can offer some protection against stone formation. It is not recommended that people should consume alcohol in the hope of preventing these stones. This is particular important if people have ever had any problems with alcohol in the past .

    Treatment of Kidney Stones

    In most instances, people will not require medical assistance for their kidneys stone. People can pass a small stone without even noticing any symptoms. In fact, most stones pass out of the body without any help. It is only when these stones are difficult to pass that the individual will usually seek help from a doctor. These are some of the available treatments for kidney stones:

    * Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) is an effective treatment for large kidney stones. It involves using shock waves that pass through the body and break up the stone.
    * Ureterorenoscopy may be required if a stone becomes trapped in the urinary tract. It involves passing a thin instrument called an ureteroscope through the urinary tract and using this to remove the stone.
    * Sometimes it will be necessary to perform surgery. A cut will be made in the back of the individual so that the surgeon can pass an instrument through to the kidney and remove the stone. This type of treatment may be used for particular large stones or when dealing with an individual who is particularly obese.

    How to Avoid Kidney Stones

    These are some of the things that people can do to avoid kidney stones :

    * Drink plenty of water, as this will help flush away the material that makes up the stone.
    * Drink alcohol only in moderation
    * Some kidneys stones occur as a result of poor diet. This indicates a need to change eating habits in order to prevent a reoccurrence. The exact dietary changes needed will depend on the type of stone. With this in mind, it is advisable to save a stone a stone that has been passed and show it to a physician. This will make it easier to determine the cause of the stone.

    What is Alcohol Abuse?

    Just as with any drug, people ask, “what is alcohol abuse?” It can be difficult to tell the difference between social drinking, moderate drinking and alcohol abuse, but the alcohol abuse definition comes down to one key point: is drinking causing problems in the person’s life?

    When people start drinking, alcohol abuse is generally the furthest thing from their minds. Drinking is started recreationally, with friends and is associated with having a good time. This positive view of alcohol can be why it is so easy to slip into alcohol abuse. Often the thoughts of alcohol being a “good time” drug stop people from seeing the signs and symptoms of alcohol abuse.

    What is Alcohol Abuse? – Alcohol Abuse Definition

    The alcohol abuse definition is similar to alcoholism in that in both cases alcohol is causing harm to the drinker’s life and those around them. The difference is that those who abuse alcohol, but are not yet alcoholics, typically can put some limitations on their drinking and they have not yet become physically addicted to alcohol. The key to the alcohol abuse definition is not in the amount of alcohol consumed but on how it affects an individual. (See effects of alcohol )

    What is Alcohol Abuse? – Signs of Alcohol Abuse

    Because the alcohol abuse definition is general, the signs are unique for each person. Some of the signs will be similar to alcoholism but often to a lesser degree. Alcohol abuse is though, by definition, problem drinking. Signs that fit within the alcohol abuse definition include: iii

    • Repeatedly neglecting responsibilities due to drinking or hangover affects
    • Using alcohol in ways that are dangerous, for example, drinking and driving
    • Having repeated legal or financial trouble as a result of drinking
    • Continuing to drink in spite of its negative effects on relationships, work or other priorities
    • Drinking as a way to relax or de-stress
    • Drinking as a way to feel good, or simply not feel bad

    What is Alcohol Abuse? – Effects of Alcohol Abuse

    Long-term alcohol abuse can affect everything in a person’s life from their family, job and finances as well as almost every organ in the body. The most important part in understanding the alcohol abuse definition is determining whether it applies in your life so help for alcohol abuse can be sought as soon as possible.

    It is important to understand that while not everyone who abuses alcohol goes on to become an alcoholic, alcohol abuse is one of the biggest risk factors to becoming an alcoholic.

    What Is Cirrhosis? How Could I Get It? #cirrhosis #of #the #liver,


    #

    What Is Cirrhosis?

    Cirrhosis develops when scar tissue replaces normal, healthy tissue in your liver. It happens after the healthy cells are damaged over a long period of time, usually many years.

    The scar tissue makes the liver lumpy and hard, and after a while, the organ will start to fail. The scar tissue makes it tough for blood to get through a large vein (the portal vein) that goes into the liver .

    When blood backs up into the portal vein, it can get into your spleen and cause trouble in that organ, too.

    There’s no cure for cirrhosis except a liver transplant. but you and your doctor can slow cirrhosis down by treating whatever is causing it.

    What Causes Cirrhosis?

    This disease always develops as a result of other liver conditions or diseases you already have. They include:

    Alcohol-related liver disease. Drinking too much alcohol for years on end raises your risk of cirrhosis. It causes fat and inflammation in the liver. The amount of alcohol it takes to hurt the liver is different for everyone. But in general, women shouldn’t have more than one drink a day. Men shouldn’t have more than two.

    Viral hepatitis . Hepatitis is inflammation of the liver. It can be caused by heavy alcohol use, some medications and certain medical conditions. Most often, a virus causes it. Hepatitis C is the most common hepatitis in the United States, followed by hepatitis B. You can get either of these by coming into contact with infected blood. This might happen if you:

    • Stick yourself with a needle by accident
    • Share needles to inject drugs
    • Had a blood transfusion in the past (before the mid-1980s for Hep B, before 1992 for Hep C)
    • Have sex with someone who has it

    Hepatitis D can also cause cirrhosis. But you can only get this type of hepatitis if you already have hepatitis B.

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease . Fat can build up in your liver even if you don’t drink alcohol. The following things can cause extra fat in your liver:

    Continued

    Autoimmune hepatitis. In some people, the body’s defenses (immune system ) go haywire and attack the liver. Doctors think this is probably genetic, meaning it runs in families. Autoimmune hepatitis is more common in women than men.

    Bile duct disease or damage. Bile ducts are small tubes that carry bile (a fluid that helps with digestion) from your liver to your small intestine. If the ducts get blocked because of disease or injury, the bile backs up into the liver and can cause cirrhosis.

    Gallstones and cystic fibrosis are two conditions that can lead to bile duct damage.

    Medications. Some drugs can cause cirrhosis if they’re taken for a very long time.

    Stages of Cirrhosis

    There are two main stages — compensated and decompensated. In compensated cirrhosis, you won’t have any symptoms. There are still enough healthy liver cells to meet your body’s needs. They compensate, or make up for, the damaged cells and scarred tissue.

    If you don’t get treatment for the cause of your cirrhosis, it’ll get worse and over time, the healthy liver cells won’t be able to keep up. Nor will your liver be able to get rid of toxic substances in your body like ammonia. Decompensated cirrhosis causes symptoms. It can lead to problems like these:

    • You bleed from large blood vessels in your esophagus (bleeding varices).
    • Fluid builds up in your belly (ascites. pronounced “ah-SIGH-tees”).
    • Toxins build up in your blood that can cause confusion (encephalopathy).
    • Your eyes and skin are yellow (jaundice ).
    • You get gallstones.
    • You bruise and bleed easily.

    Here are some ways to lower your chances for having these problems :

    • Stick to your treatments.
    • Don’t drink alcohol or use street drugs.
    • Don’t smoke.
    • Keep a healthy weight .
    • Eat a low-fat diet.

    Poisoning Overview

    Patient Comments Read 3 Comments Share Your Story

    If you or someone you know has swallowed or breathed in a poison, and you or they have serious signs or symptoms (nausea, vomiting, pain, trouble breathing, seizure, confusion, or abnormal skin color), you must either call an ambulance for transport to a hospital emergency department or call a poison control center for guidance. The National Poison Control Center phone number in the U.S. is 1-800-222-1222.

    If the person has no symptoms but has taken a potentially dangerous poison, you should also call a poison control center or go to the nearest emergency department for an evaluation.

    Poison is anything that kills or injures through its chemical actions. Most poisons are swallowed (ingested). The word poison comes from the Latin word – potare – meaning to drink. But poisons can also enter the body in other ways:

    • By breathing
    • Through the skin
    • By IV injection
    • From exposure to radiation
    • Venom from a snake bite or insect bite

    • Drinking water contaminated by agricultural or industrial chemicals
    • Food that has not been properly prepared or handled

    Drugs

    • Beta blockers: Beta blockers are a class of drugs used to treat heart conditions (for example, angina. abnormal heart rhythms ) and other conditions, (for example, high blood pressure. migraine headache prevention, social phobia. and certain types of tremors ). In excess, they can cause difficulty breathing, coma. and heart failure .
    • Warfarin (Coumadin): Coumadin is a blood thinner used to prevent blood clots. It is the active ingredient in many rat poisons and may cause heavy bleeding and death if too much is taken.
    • Vitamins: Vitamins. especially A and D, if taken in large amounts can cause liver problems and death.

    Health Education – Tobacco Use Prevention

    Health Educators promote healthy lifestyles and educate people, young and old, so that they can make informed decisions about their health.

    Health educators present programs and promote healthy behaviors in schools, workplaces, health fairs, and other settings. Our health educators are active on, or lead, a variety of committees and coalitions that are working to improve the health of Licking County residents.

    Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation Program

    Tobacco use is the single most preventable cause of disease, disability, and death in the United States. Each year, an estimated 443,000 people die prematurely from smoking or exposure to secondhand smoke, and another 8.6 million live with a serious illness caused by smoking. Despite these risks, approximately 46.6 million U.S. adults smoke cigarettes. Smokeless tobacco, cigars, and pipes also have deadly consequences, including lung, larynx, esophageal, and oral cancers.

    The Licking County Health Department (LCHD) Tobacco Use Prevention and Cessation program aims to decrease tobacco use in Licking County by encouraging tobacco-free environments and promoting cessation efforts. LCHD representatives either lead, or participate in a variety of community coalitions working toward reducing the impact of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs in Licking County.

    These include the Tobacco Use Reduction Network, the Licking County Wellness Coalition and Our Futures in Licking County. Tobacco use prevention is also included in LCHD’s Partners in Wellness school health curriculum.

    Smoke-Free Homes and Multi-Unit Housing

    Secondhand smoke is the smoke that comes from the burning end of a cigarette, cigar or pipe. Secondhand smoke can make you and your children sick.

    Secondhand Smoke is Dangerous. Everyone knows that smoking is bad for smokers, but did you know:
    • Breathing in someone else’s cigarette, pipe or cigar smoke can make you and your children sick.
    • Children who live in homes where people smoke may get sick more often with coughs, wheezing, ear infections, bronchitis or pneumonia.
    • Children with asthma may have asthma attacks that are more severe or occur more often.
    • Opening windows or using fans or air conditioners will not stop secondhand smoke exposure.
    • The U.S. Surgeon General says that secondhand smoke can cause Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, also known as SIDS.
    • Secondhand smoke also can cause lung cancer and heart disease.

    Drug Treatment Centers Dayton (937) 404-3035

    At Drug Treatment Centers Dayton. our mission is to rescue people from drug and alcohol addiction. The complexities of this disease mandate specific care protocols that are important to successfully treat drug addiction. Our drug treatment centers adhere to these protocols that are aligned with entities such as Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and the Department of Children and Families Substance Abuse and Mental Health Program recommendations for best practices and treatment for substance abuse disorders. Dayton Drug Treatment Centers help people to overcome addiction, no matter what the drug of choice is. We can help you.

    Common Drugs of Abuse

    Chemical substances that people may use to experience altered states of being are defined as drugs of abuse. The list compiled by the National Institute on these drugs includes the following:

    1. Alcohol
    2. Cocaine
    3. Heroin
    4. Marijuana
    5. MDMA (Ecstasy/Molly)
    6. Methamphetamine
    7. Opiates prescribed by a medical doctor
    8. Steroids (Anabolic)
    9. Various synthetic materials manufactured and used as a drug such as synthetic marijuana or bath salts.

    Treatment programs

    To be truly effective, treatment programs for drug and alcohol dependency must be comprehensive enough to address the various nuances of addiction. However, putting aside all the complexities, the ultimate goal is to help individuals stop drug abuse and enable them to live a normal life. To this end, Drug Treatment Centers Dayton take a very individualized approach to treatment.

    The assessment tools utilized by our facility includes psychological and biomedical evaluations designed to provide a complete profile that includes social and medical history, current physical health, emotional makeup, past traumatic experiences, mental illness, genetics and their living and working environments. The foregoing information helps to determine the type of treatment that will be administered. This customized program undergoes continuous evaluation as treatment progresses.

    Medical Detox

    Taking the first step towards your recovery means getting rid of drugs from your physical body. The detoxification process provided by our experienced treatment team is a critical component of any drug rehab program. The purpose of medical oversight while detoxing is to alleviate the risks inherent in the cessation of drug use, as well as to alleviate any severe discomfort that may cause a relapse .

    In some cases, the symptoms are severe enough to cause a heart attack, pulmonary complications, seizures or depression so severe it evokes the desire to commit suicide. The following is an example of deadly withdrawal symptoms of three different substances of abuse.

    • Alcohol withdrawals cause a serious condition called Delirium Tremens (DTs). These are a series of symptoms with extremely high fatality rates.
    • Dilaudid Withdrawal is associated with intense pain, vomiting, seizures and cardiac arrest.
    • Crystal Meth withdrawals cause severe depression, paranoia and the potential for suicide.

    Treatment Programs

    Our drug treatment facility provides inpatient residential rehab, outpatient programs and partial hospitalization services. Residential Rehab involves living at the rehab treatment center for an average of 30 to 90 days. This is an intense treatment program in which our board certified team of addiction professionals works with clients to learn new coping skills, relapse mechanisms, as well as to plan an aftercare program with the sole purpose of achieving and maintaining term sobriety.

    Drug Treatment Centers Dayton offer specialized services and tools that can help you to overcome addiction. Call Drug Treatment Centers Dayton today at (937) 404-3035 .

    Signs of Spleen Problems

    by DOUG HEWITT Last Updated: Aug 16, 2013

    Doug Hewitt has been writing for over 20 years and has a Master of Arts from University of North Carolina-Greensboro. He authored the book “The Practical Guide to Weekend Parenting,” which includes health and fitness hints for parents. He and his wife, Robin, are coauthors of the “Free College Resource Book.”

    Signs of Spleen Problems Photo Credit Jupiterimages/Polka Dot/Getty Images

    The spleen is an organ approximately the size of a fist and is located on the left side of the body, above the stomach and below the rib cage. There are two different types of tissue in the spleen that support biological functions. The white pulp tissue supports the immune system by producing lymphocytes. These lymphocytes produce antibodies that fight infection. The red pulp tissue filters out unwanted materials like viruses and bacteria from blood. The red pulp also destroys red blood cells that are damaged, abnormal or too old to function correctly. It’s important to know the signs of problems with the spleen so that medical attention can be sought when appropriate. For example, a swollen spleen is more easily ruptured that a normal spleen, and a ruptured spleen can lead to life-threatening internal bleeding.

    Signs of Swollen Spleen

    According to the Mayo Clinic, it’s possible that an enlarged spleen will produce no signs or symptoms, but some signs can include pain in the upper left abdomen area. This pain can spread to the left shoulder. Even without eating, a person with an enlarged spleen can feel full because the spleen is pressing against the stomach. Frequent infections and bleeding easily are two signs of an enlarged spleen due to a degradation of the spleen functions. Other signs of an enlarged spleen are anemia and fatigue.

    Signs of Ruptured Spleen

    The positioning of the spleen in the body makes it susceptible to damage. For example, fistfights and automobile accidents can result in ruptured spleens. Abdominal pain is a sign of a ruptured or injured spleen. Tenderness in the abdominal area is another sign. Other signs of a ruptured spleen include confusion, fainting, blurred vision and feeling lightheaded, which are signs of low blood pressure. Low blood pressure can occur because a spleen is bleeding.

    Signs of Pooling

    For people with sickle cell anemia, sickle cells can pool in the spleen. A sign of this is pain in the abdomen. Pooling of sickle cells can also result in a sharp drop in hemoglobin, a condition that is life threatening. According to The Georgia Comprehensive Sickle Cell Center, the spleen can become so large as to fill the abdominal cavity. Signs of pooling include sudden weakness, pallor on the lips and other mucous membranes, shortness of breath and a rapid heart rate. This condition should receive immediate medical attention.

I tried tons of programs, but failed with all of them. Rehab Centers in Philadelphia gave me hope once more, helped me understand my drug addiction, and taught me the right way to identify and avoid my triggers. I would almost definitely still be living on the streets, alone, and suffering without the assistance of Rehab Centers in Philadelphia.

    Rehab Centers in Philadelphia ’s Services

    One of the best strategies for convincing an addict to enter a rehab facility is an intervention. The absolute best type of intervention is an extremely organized, well-planned event in which the addict’s family members express their worries, anxieties, or frustrations about the addict’s habits in hopes that the addict will agree to enter treatment. Interventions Philadelphia recommends using a qualified professional, such as a substance dependency therapist or an interventionist, to help plan and conduct the intervention. Interventions that are organized with the aid of a certified, professional interventionist have a ninety per cent success rate. An intervention is not the same thing as rehabilitation, and agreeing to enter treatment after an intervention is a very important aspect of recovery.

    Along with interventions, detox is a procedure that should not be confused with treatment, so it’s necessary to understand that detox will not ‘cure’ an addict of their problems with substance abuse. As a first step towards recovery, detox, or detoxification, helps the addict safely and swiftly withdraw from the substance(s) they re dependent on, occasionally with the aid of medication. Social detoxification is a procedure that can be completed in a residential or outpatient facility, and involves instructing and readying an addict for treatment. Medically supervised detoxification (often called medically supervised withdrawal) is a type of detox that takes place in a hospital or inpatient facility where the addict’s withdrawal is supervised by a nurse or medical doctor. Detox Philadelphia provides either sort of detox depending on the requirements of the client.

    A rehabilitation program that satisfies all of the client’s requirements (physical, psychological, social, medical, vocational, and emotional) are the most ideal. Treatment Programs Philadelphia takes these kinds of factors under consideration, and to make the most effective treatment plan imaginable, custom-makes treatment for every client. Treatment’s primary objectives are to help addicts realize the roots of their drug addiction, what their relapse triggers are, and methods to avoid the cravings drugs and alcohol after they re-join society.

    Alcoholism Treatment Programs

    Alcohol addiction treatment is a challenging task. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. over half of all Americans over the age of 13 have used alcohol at some point in their lives. With a statistic like this, it is not surprising that many individuals are suffering from alcohol abuse. Successful treatment programs vary depending on the individual and most often require a combination of treatment methods.

    How to Know If You Are Addicted

    Alcohol becomes an addiction when you no longer get joy from normal, everyday activities. If you constantly wonder if you are addicted to alcohol, then there is a good chance that you are. Other signs that you may be addicted to alcohol are drinking even in the morning or putting yourself or others in danger, such as drinking while pregnant or while driving.

    Types of Treatment Available

    Detox from Addiction

    Detoxification, also known as detox, is the process of reducing and eliminating drug or alcohol use and removing the addictive substance from the body. Detox from addiction can be done in an inpatient or outpatient setting, although it tends to be more effective when done in a residential treatment center. Detox alone is not enough to cure an addiction, and treatment with behavioral therapy and counseling is necessary for a true recovery from addiction.

    The most important step in the treatment of alcohol addiction is complete abstinence. Once you completely remove the stimuli, it will be easier to fight. You must also acknowledge the fact that you need help.

    One of the most common methods used in alcoholism treatment programs is medication. Anti-anxiety medication can help control the symptoms of anxiety and depression that go along with detox. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, there are three drugs that have been approved for the treatment of alcohol addiction. These drugs are disulfiram, naltrexone, and acamprosate. Naltroxone and acamprosate help control the withdrawal symptoms and cravings of alcohol addiction. When disulfram is taken while still drinking, it can cause severe reactions, such as nausea and vomiting. The reaction is often so bad that it is enough to deter one from drinking.

    Medications are given along with group therapy. Talking to others who know exactly what you are going through can often be enough to keep you from relapsing. You can help encourage one another along the process and share each other s success. It is important that you attend all group meetings necessary for your treatment.

    Proper exercise and nutrition will help you get healthy and feel better. Once you begin to feel good about yourself, it will help you resist the need to use alcohol as a crutch. This allows you to replace alcohol addiction with positive hobbies and activities.

    An alcoholic treatment center can provide inpatient help. This allows you to check into a treatment center and completely focus on rehabilitation. You remove yourself from negative situations, and you are allowed to undergo detox in a safe environment.

    Withdrawal Symptoms

    Detoxification from alcohol will result in a wide variety of withdrawal symptoms. Some of the symptoms can be severe, but if you are prepared for what will happen, you can have a plan of action to get you through it. Some symptoms of withdrawal include, but are not limited to:

    • Headache
    • Vomiting
    • Nausea
    • Sweating
    • Increased heart rate
    • Upset stomach
    • Anxiety
    • Depression
    • Trembling
    • Insomnia
    • Hallucinations
    • Confusion
    • Agitation

    What You Should Know about Treatment

    The length of time that it takes to recover from alcohol addiction can vary, depending on the person and the severity of the problem. Most inpatient treatments can take approximately two months to complete, while outpatient programs generally take longer. The road to recovery is generally a long one that requires consistent work and support from family and friends. No single treatment will work for everyone. You may need to try different treatment options or a combination of treatments. The important thing is to keep trying-keep all of your scheduled appointments and avoid situations that will cause you to relapse. It is often necessary to continue going to meetings even after you have beaten the addiction. This will help ensure you will not fall back into old patterns.

    Priorities in a Treatment Center

    In 2016, Recovery Brands conducted a survey asking patients leaving a recovery clinic what center attributes they viewed as vital aspects to look for in a treatment program. The most important priority was the center s financial policies, for example, financial support, payment options, and insurance accepted. They also prioritized the clinic s offerings (food, room quality, extra activities, etc.) significantly more after completing treatment. Those considering treatment may want to consider a facility s monetary policies as well as the facility s offerings to aid in their facility choice.
