Prescription and over-the-counter drug abuse and addiction have become a major problem of concern in America. Prescription drugs are the second most commonly abused drug, behind marijuana and ahead of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and other drugs. The National Institute of Health estimates that close to twenty percent of people in the USA have used prescription drugs for non-medical reasons. Steroid abuse is also on the rise. Steroids are prescription drugs that are legally prescribed to treat a variety of medical conditions that cause the loss of lean muscle mass, such as cancer and AIDS.
Prescription drug abuse appears to be on the rise in this country. Increasing numbers of prescriptions written for certain drugs, such as ADHD medications and opioids, afford greater opportunity for the legal use of potent drugs. A certain portion of those will be diverted for abuse purposes. In the current environment it seems almost normal to pop pills. All of the advertising for pills may play a role in our willingness to try them. Roughly 6.3 million Americans report that they're currently using prescription drugs for nonmedical reasons, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Whether or not they are abused, when taken over a period of time, prescription drugs and their metabolites build up in cells and body tissues. Over time, they reach a level of concentration that adversely effects cell, tissue and control system function in a profound manner. This often manifests in difficult-to-diagnose and difficult-to-treat systemic health disorders involving the nervous system, the immune system and endocrine system. Unfortunately, most unsuspecting people visit their medical doctor for treatment, only to be given more health threatening drugs as a treatment modality.
Anesthetics can impose long term adverse health effects. The mechanism of action of anesthetics is poorly understood. What we do know is they have a myriad of actions that affect the central nervous system at multiple levels including the cerebral cortex, thalamus, reticular activating system and spinal cord. Essentially, anesthetics create a drug induced coma. As with all drugs and synthetic chemicals, they have the potential to store and accumulate in nerve tissue and cause altered function including , but not limited to: delirium, memory loss, fatigue, depression, decreased cognitive function, brain fog, decreased sensory awareness and a decrease in one's overall sense of well being.
The Drug and Surgery Recovery Program at Clearsprings Health Center helps reverse the negative long term health affects of drugs and surgery. This is accomplished by systematically removing the stored residue of drugs and anesthetics from the body and repairing damaged tissue. On completion of the Drug and Surgery Recovery Program at Clearsprings, clients consistently report increased energy, improved reflexes, increased strength and stamina, improved memory, improved cognitive abilities, a feeling of brightness and a greatly improved sense of overall well being.
