Are Our Senior Citizens Hooked on Drugs?

Do you know what the fastest-growing U.S. population is? Here’s a hint: This population is expected to double in the next 20 years. If your answer was adults older than 65 years old, you were correct. What age group do you think uses more psychoactive medications than any other group?

It’s the Holidays – Are Your Boundaries with Your Alcoholic/Addict Wrapped up Tight?

Here we are again. No sooner have we unwrapped our last miniature Snickers from our Halloween candy stash, when we are bombarded with all things Christmas. Sometimes I think it would be nice if the holidays came around like the Olympics, every two or four years. Or if we could skip them altogether and just hang a sign on our front door saying “Gone fishing…please come back after January 3”.
