More than 43 million people in the United States are over the age of 65. They 're scared to admit when they have a drug addiction problem. However, drug rehab for older adults is no less important than it is for young folks today. Seniors face different needs than young adults when entering drug rehab. This is why they 're uncomfortable, don 't take part nearly as much, and don 't have as good of outcomes when sharing recovery with younger adults.
This causes excessive stress and anger to the caregivers because of each of them needs freedom for themselves. Other than that, various types of sickness will come easily when someone gets older. The percentage of elder abuse rise higher when the caregiver is in charge of the elderly who is mental or physical illness (American Psychological Association, no date). It is because when the elderly cannot get to manage themselves on their own, they might create a lot of problem such as simply pee on the floor, simply shout in the public and etc. Just because of the elders cannot manage to control their behaviour well, the caregiver might get annoyed and mad.
Drugs such as alcohol have an effect on all users, regardless of their age; however, alcohol has an especially harmful effect on teens since their bodies are still developing. Studies have shown that alcohol has numerous negative effects on a teen’s body and mental health; for example, a study conducted by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention stated that “alcohol consumption affects the brain’s frontal lobes, which is essential for functions such as emotional regulations, planning, and organization” (“Age”). Teens already have high emotions and difficulties planning and organizing; alcohol will only enhance teens’ struggle. The Center of Disease Control and Prevention also found that alcohol consumption at a young age can potentially cause chronic problems such as memory loss, depression, suicidal thoughts, and poor decision making (“Age”). Teens have a difficult enough time making decisions and organizing their lives, but adding alcohol to the mix will only make matters worse; their bodies are still developing, and they are still learning to be adults.
First is that underage drinking could lead to someone else’s death because some teenagers nowadays are most likely to put themselves into danger. On the survey we conducted 70% said that they tend to experience side effects from drinking. Some of these side effects may include nausea or vomiting and headache, that causes them to lose their discipline in terms of interacting with people, and also it affects the way they think. An example would be making the decision opposite of what should be done right without even having any idea of what they are doing, acting as if they are
Drug abuse also affects education in a bad way because learners are taught about how drugs affect their bodies, families and society around them. Even though learners receive this education about drugs they choose to turn a blind eye on this because they still go ahead and do drugs and once they become addicted to these drugs they end up dropping out of school. Education is negatively affected by drug abuse because the percentage of learners who abuse drugs increases as time goes by which means the percentage of school drop outs will also increase as time goes by meaning that education about drugs is pointless to the
My issue is if cosmetic surgery is becoming a mental health issue or if it’s becoming an addiction to many. I will mainly discuss how it’s becoming such a big issue to this society and how it’s affecting many people. A lot of people mostly teenagers are being affected because they see that many people are going on with the procedure. Many people are having the thought that it is only to make them prettier or to boost their self-esteem. However many also argue that since many people are undergoing cosmetic surgery it’s easier for people to just undergo a surgery and wake up with what you wanted.
The effects of this disease are really serious. Many people get used to drink alcohol , and they can easily abuse; that is the problem. Alcoholism is the abuse of alcohol by people who are unable to control their drinking behavior over an extended period of time. Alcoholics are not simply people who drink alcohol; instead, their entire lives revolve around it. At first, everyone who starts drinking alcoholic beverages, thinks that its something normal, and that it's okay to do it, but what they really don't know yet, is that this particular habit has a way of turning itself into one of the worst addictions in the world.
Peer pressure is stronger than many realize, and has led to fatal overdoses, unwanted pregnancies, car accidents, violent crime and dangerous accidents. Peer pressure is very prevalent in the teenage years, and drug use is one of its most frequent results. If a teenager witnesses his friends either selling or taking drugs, they may want to participate in that behavior as well, because they perceive it as "cool" and don 't want to be labelled an
Everyone makes decisions and choices they regret, and some of these choices have a negative impact on people and their futures. Dropping out of high school because one is stressed, smoking and drinking because it is viewed as cool and a way to fit in, or even going to that next step with your significant other as a teen, are examples of choices facing teenagers in the united states. All of these things can lead to negative outcomes for one’s future. Alcohol leads to abuse, alcoholism, and a lot of medical issues. Sex can cause pregnancy and pregnancy may lead to abortion, which also causes other serious medical issues and even death.
Many famous people are addicted to drugs, they are public figures, their behavior is widely attention, if they are taking drugs, this can cause a lot of adverse effects. Some people think education and imprisonment does not reduce the use of drugs, so they suggest the legalization of drugs. I don't agree with this view. Now there are many new drugs, the medicinal properties of these drugs may be lower than the previous drug, but still great harm to human body. More teenagers try drugs, for the development of society and human health, so drugs must be banned.
Along with severe side effects such as increase in suicidal thoughts these medications leave a great toll on these children’s physical health. 35% of foster kid’s BMI increases tremendously upon entering care and being medicated. So how are these minors being prescribed medication for disorders they are too young to be diagnosed with? And why is the government spending billions on paying for these hospitalizations and medications? Instead of investing in these children for tomorrow and their future the only thing they get today is a number in a
Pharmaceutical drug overdoses were recorded as one of the leading causes of death in the United States, killing more Americans than firearms or motor vehicle accidents (Prescription Drug Abuse Statistics, 2013). Many patients are being prescribed these medications after surgery or after suffering an injury that may not require surgery and through overuse, causing these patients to become addicted. Although many feel that doctors are still overprescribing narcotics, this epidemic of prescription drug abuse has been brought to the forefront of national consciousness causing many prevention strategies of abuse to be put in place, strategies that were not presented in the past. The hope for these strategies is to curb the amount of unnecessary prescriptions being prescribed. Some of these strategies include educating and training physicians and doctors in the diagnosis and treatment of addictive diseases, specifically the abuse and misuse of controlled prescription drugs, as well as the implementation of the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP), which
Reality of Anti-Depressant Use It may startle you to know that of every mental disorder in the United States of America, anxiety disorders are the most common (“Anxiety”). “Anxiety is often a health response to uncertainty and danger, but constant worry and nervousness can be a sign of another trouble, internal rather than external” (“Generalized Anxiety Disorder: Toxic Worry” 1). There are many adolescents who struggle with mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression and take anti-depressants to help them cope, but the safety of such drugs on developing bodies is debatable. Anxiety is a horrible fear of something you could never put into words or describe (“Anxiety”). For many people with anxiety, the fear of not knowing when and where
Introduction This paper will discuss the ensuing difficulties regarding teenage non-medical prescription drug use and the possible alternatives to reduce abuse in the youth population. Discussion There is an imperative need for parents to understand the physical and emotional problems their teens may be facing and get them the help they need to adequately and appropriately address the varying issues. Furthermore, most adults think of teen drug use as an outward expression of adolescent rebellion; a means to party and experiment. Moreover, parents are not aware that prescription drugs have become the latest and greatest way to do just that. “Many people ages 11 to 18 routinely take pills such as Vicodin, Percocet, Xanax, Klonopin, Adderal,
