It Wasn’t Easy for Lovato to Quit Lovato confessed to E Online, stating she couldn’t go more than 30 minutes to an hour withou...
During the holidays, we watch Christmas commercials on TV, see Christmas lights and decorations hung up on houses, and overhear our coworkers, friends, and family excitedly talk about their holiday plans. What we don’t often hear about (but is just as important) is how disparaging the holidays can be for those recovering from drug and alcohol addictions. The Dark Side of Addiction Durin...
Brightly colored lights. Bundled-up carolers. Huddling around the fireplace with friends and family members. Tearing off that red-and-green wrapping paper to reveal the perfect gift.

Most people want an easy solution to a complicated problem, be it money trouble...

Unfortunately, many of these individuals use alcohol and drugs to help combat their mental illness, while failing to take safe and helpful medications that may actually prevent and resolve the underlying causes of the mental illness itself. Individuals who suff...
