This data not only includes the drug and dosage but the pharmacists are also required to record the prescribing doctor, the patient, and the dispenser. Some states also use a unique serial number that is captured in an effort to stop the duplication of prescriptions. This data is then entered into an electronic database which can then identify people who are abusing or at risk to start abusing these monitored prescriptions. These programs not only evaluate the dosage and times the drugs were dispensed, but they also can compare the chemical makeup of the prescriptions and categorize them with other similar prescriptions (Paulozzi, Kilbourne, & Desai, 2011). Therefore, they not only track the abuse of one drug but can identify a person who is receiving similar pain medications and is at risk for developing a dependence or even having an overdose.
Vivitrol is the Key to Recovery Vivitrol is the name of the once monthly, extended-release injectable form of the drug Naltrexone that is administered to people suffering from opiate and alcohol addiction following complete detoxification. Naltrexone is known as an opiate receptor antagonist, which means it essentially blocks the effects of opiates and heroin (Syed and Keating 851). The recommended dose is 380mg intramuscularly every four weeks following 7-10 days of detoxification. This detoxification is determined by a negative urine drug screen prior to administration (Syed and Keating 858).

Elie Wiesel goes through 2 years of inhumane treatment, but always looks forward, because he has his father. When the Holocaust starts to come to an end, his father dies from Dysentery, leaving Elie lifeless. Although, through all that hardship, he recovers and that family bond can preserve sanity, and never to give up on life. When Elie endured all of this, usually people lose their sanity, but not Elie, for he had his father through most of it. This quote shows that without his father, the only family he had left, he was just an empty shell.
I had a BMI of 37 going into my freshman year of college and my physician warned me numerous times to change my lifestyle. I dismissed their warnings with youthful ignorance. However, there I was laboring away on that treadmill, with only one response to those thoughts begging me to quit, “This pain is nothing compared to how you felt that day.” My dad was never out of shape, but he also wasn’t as healthy as his physician asked him to be.
A Bordentown family physician’s license was temporarily suspended for prescribing up to 720 opioid pain pills a month without any physical exams or documentation of a legitimate need for the drugs, according to the Division of Consumer Affairs.

Recognizing, acknowledging, and understanding medication safety is important when administering medications.
