Interesting Facts and Statistics:
In 2005, past month use of any illegal drug, cigarettes, and alcohol was lower among teens aged 12 to 17 who reported that their parents always or sometimes engaged in monitoring behaviors than among teens whose parents "seldom" or "never" engaged in such behaviors. For example, the rate of past month use of any illegal drug was 8.1 percent for teens whose parents always or sometimes helped with homework compared with 17.4 percent among teens who indicated that their parents seldom or never helped. Rates for current cigarette smoking were 9.3 and 17.7 percent for the two groups of teens, respectively, and rates of past month alcohol use were 14.5 versus 27.2 percent.
The number of Methadone overdoses has greatly increased in the United States within the past several years. During 2005, almost 4,000 people died from an overdose of the potent opiate.
There are many different types of Methadone drug recovery programs. It is extremely important to find the right treatment program, so that the individual will have a better success rate of not relapsing.
Among women aged 15 to 44, combined data for 2005 and 2006 indicated that the rate of past month cigarette use was lower among those who were pregnant (16.5 percent) than it was among those who were not pregnant (29.5 percent).
Ecstasy can also be dangerous to overall health and, on rare occasions, lethal.
Opiates act in several areas of the brain that are involved in interpreting pain messages and in subjective responses to pain. The opiates don't block the pain messages themselves. Rather, they change the subjective experience of the pain. A person using opiates for pain may say that they still feel the pain but that it doesn't bother them anymore.
