Leading Cause of Death For Young People In Ohio

September 2012--What Is The Leading Cause Of Death For Young People In The State Of Ohio?

For many years the leading causes of death for young people in Ohio have been suicide and car accidents..........not any more. Number one cause of death for young people in Ohio is "accidental" drug overdose. Almost always an opiate.

Remember, not all drug addicts are the "bad kids". There are many instances of "All American" type boys and girls having serious drug issues. Do some research and you will find that a lot of young adults, who are now deceased due to overdose, were sports stars, hard workers and all around great kids. The "good kids" that wouldn't do those types of things. Many of them were introduced to opiate based painkillers (Vicodin, Oxycontin, Percocet, Dilaudid, Morphine) after a sports injury.

Also, do not delude yourselves into thinking that "my kid would never do that". Maybe they wouldn't, maybe they would. Just avoid the the ostrich mentality. Don't bury your head in the sand and ignore what is going on. 

If you suspect your child is in the early "experimental" stages of "flirting" with drug and alcohol use....or if you know they are already an addict...address it. Ignoring it will not make it go away, it may only lead to you attending a funeral.

Is Marijuana A Gateway Drug?

September 2012---Is Marijuana A Gateway Drug?

This question has been asked and debated for many, many years. After years of being a cop and dealing with drug cases, I have had many people ask me this question.

Here is my answer:

Not all people who smoke marijuana will go on to do "hard" drugs, but virtually all people who do hard drugs started with marijuana. Decide for yourself.

Can You Cold Turkey Anti Depressants?

September 2012---What Happens When You Cold Turkey Anti-Depressants?

I cannot attest to all of them, but I can tell you a story about Paxil. Many of these medications work on similar principles, so there is the chance this could happen with many of these types of medications.

A few years ago a friend of mine was going through some real hard times. The doc put him on Paxil to help raise his moods and treat the depression. After a few more months he was feeling better and quit the Paxil cold turkey. He immediately starting having a number of issues, the most prevalent of one being called "the zaps". This is a feeling of randomly being shocked at various points in the body.

This can be so bad that it greatly interferes with your ability to function. He went back to the doctor who said it had nothing to do with Paxil "withdrawal" and wanted to screen him for MS. He disagreed with the doc and did some research. He found out this is common when you cold turkey a Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI). There are many SSRI's...more commonly called antidepressants. My buddy decided to very slowly, over the course of 4-6 months wean himself off of the Paxil. He took lower and lower doses on a routine schedule by cutting pills in half, quarters and eventually using liquid Paxil. This worked wonderfully and he had no issues. So....if you are trying to get of an SSRI, which there are many kinds off, you may have to very slowly wean yourself off to do it. Doctors may tell you these cold turkey symptoms are not legit. Many people with real experience say different.

Are Doctors Always Accurate With The Advice They May Give You Concerning The Use Of Pain Pills And Opiates?

September 2012---Are Doctors Always Accurate With The Advice They May Give You Concerning The Use Of Pain Pills And Opiates?

Some doctors will tell you that if you are using an opiate/pain pill in a legit way for legit pain control.....you cannot become addicted. THIS IS NOT ALWAYS TRUE. I have seen many legit people use opiates/pain pills to treat legit pain and become hopelessly addicted.

Many good, hard working, law abiding people with serious injuries have been placed on pain medications.....and found themselves unable to stop taking the pills once they are "cured" of their medical ailment.

I am not saying to not use pain pills when they are necessary. I have had a couple of very serious, potentially life threatening medical conditions where I used "high test" opiates in large amounts. I am simply saying to be careful with these drugs. For some people, addiction creeps up on them faster than they would ever believe. They think just because the doctor authorizes the drugs, they are safe and cannot become addicted.

I believe that doctors who give this advice, believe it and truly have the best interest of their patients in mind. Some of them just don't work with the "addict side" of things like the police do.They don't deal with all the "spin off" crime generated by opiate addcition.

How To Stop Death From Opiate Overdose

September 2012---How To Stop Death From Opiate Overdose

Opiates come in many forms such as heroin, morphine, vicodin, percocet, dilaudid, fentanyl etc etc.....but why are so many people overdosing and dying on opiates compared to other drugs? Because it's easy to die on opiates. Meaning, opiates suppress the part of the brain that "reminds" you to breath. A person gets so calm and so relaxed they don't realize they are no longer breathing. They simply drift into death. Usually the only way to save them is a dose of Narcan (Naloxone) before they are totally gone.

If you suspect your friend is overdosing on opiates (unresponsive....gasping for breath....sporadic labored breathing....lips turning blue....spittle or foam coming from mouth) call rescue immediately.

If the OD is caught in time, it can be reversed by using Narcan (Naloxone). This drug is carried on nearly all rescue squads and available in nearly all hospitals. It is truly a miracle drug and has prevented death approximately 10 times in Delphos alone in recent times. Epi-Pen is to a bee sting like Narcan is to opiate overdose. If you suspect someone has overdosed on opiates, call for a squad right away. If the overdose if far enough along, this drug is the only one that will prevent their death, if administered in time.

Also remember, heroin and pain pills are nearly interchangeable from an addicts perspective. Think of it this way----A guy is a Jack Daniels alcoholic. That's his drink and nothing else. One day, he is out of Jack. All that's available is Vodka. It may not be his drink of choice, but it will certainly get the job done. Heroin and pain pills are very similar in their relationship. It's a little more complicated than that, but that pretty much sums it up.
