  • Methadone Abuse in Children - Cliffside Malibu Blog
    s death is tragic especially when that death was completely preventable This was the first detailed examination of the dangers to children of medications normally used in drug treatments The charity said Although methadone is effective in treating drug addiction child ingestions happen with depressing regularity and national lessons are not being learned from serious case reviews We are seeing a rare but real use of methadone as a pacifier for small children It is possible that in some cases parents or caregivers who have addiction problems mistakenly give a crying or perhaps an over active child methadone or something similar They may even use it several times before a noticeable problem occurs or in a stressful situation inadvertently give a lethal dose to a child In about a fifth of cases studied parents were deliberately administering methadone to young children apparently in misguided attempts to soothe or pacify them In other instances the parents may irresponsibly leave their medication where inquisitive children can see or find it creating the possibility of accidental poisoning Sadly these preventable accidents happen Physicians should assess all patients and the possibility of exposure to children when prescribing any medications with the potential to be abused or misused by small children in the household or given to small children to keep them quiet Medical professionals should explicitly tell parents not to give methadone to their children in any circumstance Though this study was conducted in the UK similar problems are found in the US It is never ok to dose children with cough syrup Benadryl liquor or other medications to keep them quiet Keep all medications out of reach of children and in child resistant containers http www theguardian com uk news 2014 apr 29 parents methadone pacify children deaths adfam Search for Categories Categories

  • What We Have Learned about LSD - Cliffside Malibu
    been cases of permanent hallucinations reported along with a percentage of bad trips experienced Researchers still do not know exactly how hallucinogens work in the brain primarily because research into the effects and medicinal uses of drugs like LSD were halted decades ago with the passage of Controlled Substances Act of 1970 which classified hallucinogens like LSD as Schedule 1 drugs that have no medical value As nations around the world followed this trend of making hallucinogens illegal research essentially halted However between the 1950s and 1970s thousands of people were treated for alcoholism depression and anxiety by medical researchers administering LSD Then in 2007 the first study since the 1970s was approved in Switzerland Sponsored by the non profit Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies MAPS the double blind placebo controlled pilot study in 12 subjects with advanced stage illness found statistically significant reductions in anxiety following two LSD assisted psychotherapy sessions The results of the first study of the therapeutic use of LSD in humans in over 40 years were published online in March in the peer reviewed Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease This study is historic and marks a rebirth of investigation into LSD assisted psychotherapy says Rick Doblin Ph D MAPS Executive Director The positive results and evidence of safety clearly show why additional larger studies are needed Perhaps the time has come to re examine LSD and other hallucinogenic drugs for psychotherapeutic uses If these drugs can offer evidence based help for some people who suffer from specific mental illnesses then more research needs to confirm and validate results as soon as possible to offer more options for treatments in the future http www maps org research lsd Gasser 2014 JMND 4March14 pdf http www maps org media view press release lsd study breaks 40
