“Why?”  Anyone who’s ever personally experienced addiction has asked that question. Why am I doing this to myself? Why can’t I stop that person from harming themselves? Why is this happening?  It’s a tough question to answer. If you’re strictly talking about the chemical aspect (and that label applies to alcohol, too), the question is a bit more straightforward. People develop addiction in part because of the way […]

Here’s a situation that may be familiar:  Say an office worker is feeling especially stressed one day. Their co-worker shares a quarter bar of a Xanax pill with them as a gesture.  Or how about this: a traveler decides to borrow a Klonopin from their spouse/friend/parent before a long flight so they can sleep better.  Both of these situations qualify as drug abuse. Prescription tranquilizers […]

Equality still has a long way to go.  Take paychecks. Although it’s narrowed somewhat since the 1980s, the gender pay gap is still with us: Pew Research’s May 2021 report found women only earned 84% of what men made. For anyone who values gender equity, it’s frustrating news made even more so by the events of 2020.  However, there is one area in which the gender gap has narrowed considerably: alcohol use.  […]

After July 1st, Virginia the 16th state to legalize recreational marijuana. The Old Dominion joins a steady procession of states who in recent years have rapidly changed their laws governing marijuana’s sale and use, with some states considering full decriminalization of all drugs.  With increased legality comes popularity: according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), marijuana is second to alcohol as the most used psychotropic drug in the U.S.  […]

When we call addiction a “family disease,” what are we really talking about?  Some researchers think there’s a genetic component to drug & alcohol addiction. NIDA, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, cites studies of siblings, twins and even adoptees showing nearly half of the risk of developing a substance use disorder depends on an individual’s genetic makeup.  Of course, […]

It’s truly a chicken-or-the-egg question:  Do people abuse alcohol and other substances because they’re depressed, or do the effects of substance abuse make people depressed?  It’s been known for years a link between mental health and substance use exists. The National Bureau of Economic Research estimates people with an existing mental illness tend to be active consumers of substances, consuming 38% of alcohol and 44% […]

Things are getting back to normal again, and it’s about time.  Great. Awesome. So why do you feel so tense?  It might be because you’re faced with the prospect of going back to work. We don’t mean returning to whatever home office you’ve been using since the 2020 lockdowns. We mean the office. The commute, parking, the whole bit.  […]

Had any major life changes lately? Maybe in the past year or so?  It’s a cliché to say COVID-19 changed everything … but it kind of did. Everything from where we work to how we interact with others got massively upended. While things are slowly getting back to normal, it’s a safe bet some situations are going to continue to be different going forward.  […]

Sober living is super important in recovery.  But what if it isn’t possible right now?  Housing can be both expensive and hard to find. For some, a roommate might be a necessity to make rent payments. And sometimes, this means living with someone who doesn’t live a sober lifestyle.  Many Americans are regular alcohol users. The National Institute […]

Drug and alcohol recovery is hard work.  No major life change is easy; this is especially true for recovery. Successful recovery often means finding new friends, avoiding old hangouts, and getting through often challenging drug & alcohol recovery programs.  Given all that effort, it’s not surprising the thought of relapse looms large in the minds of […]
