When Just a Little Is Too Much: The Risks of Alcohol-Exposed Pregnancy
One of my challenges in working with patients suffering from addictive illnesses is to help increase their motivation to stick with a long-term recovery plan. This is a significant challenge for many reasons, especially because the disease of addiction affects the brain's ability to value long term recovery. The one exception to this difficulty, in many cases, is when a female patient gets pregnant. I have witnessed women who struggled for years with an addictive illness discover they are pregnant and, when the pregnancy is wanted, are able to make incredible strides in their recovery. They are often able to maintain sobri...

The Opioid Epidemic: How Did We Get Here?
Welp, we've done it, folks. It's finally come to this. There have been so many deaths from opioid overdose, so many addicts created, so many pills diverted, that the CDC is getting involved. Opioid pain medications, commonly prescribed to treat acute and chronic sources of pain, are a significant cause of morbidity (harm) and mortality (death) in America. In 2014, the CDC reported a total of 47,055 drug overdose deaths in the United States, 61% of which were attributable to opioids. So how exactly did we get here? Like most things in medicine, there is not one simple answer. But it's not that hard to trace things back a f...

Absolute must-read: LA Times on the myth of OxyContin’s 12-hour analgesic effect
Quick: how long does a dose of Oxycontin provide pain relief? Most clinicians would probably say 12 hours, since the drug was extensively marketed as a twice-daily opioid analgesic and the manufacturer — Purdue Pharma — cited this originally unique convenience factor as justifying its high cost, which could exceed $630 a bottle. In an explosive and masterfully written investigative piece by Harriet Ryan, Lisa Girion and Scott Glover,  the Los Angeles Times reported this week that in most patients the duration of the analgesic effect for OxyContin does not last nearly as long as claimed, and that this discrepancy may b...

Arianna: This Is A 'Key Moment' For Breaking Our Addiction To Our Devices
This week, HuffPost editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington sat down with journalist David Gregory to talk about the importance of sleep, looking inward, and occasionally disconnecting from our devices. "We need to reestablish dominion over our devices, because at the moment, most of us are truly addicted," Huffington said."Our world has become too outward-driven and that cycle of going inward to refuel has been really short-circuited. "So that’s what we need to recapture. And without it everything is suffering – our health, our relationships, our leadership. It’s really a very key moment for us to be having t...

Sugar: In Sickness And In Health, Until Death Do Us Part
Photo via Pixabay Being a health-conscious food lover, it's hard to believe what my eating habits were growing up. As a child, I used to drink a soda for breakfast every day, followed by three more before 7 PM. Yes, I know; you're judging me. And I'm not proud of what I ate. In fact, I'm pretty embarrassed to admit it, but the truth is, I didn't know any better. Nowadays, we all acknowledge that soda is laced with sugar, and we have seen its damages: tooth decay, weight gain, and hyperactivity in children, among other things. But you may be eating foods that are just as bad as soda. And even worse, you may be feeding it ...

The No. 1 Thing That Is Ruining Your Diet
Have you ever been on a diet or program, diligently watching what you eat, counting your calories and/or carbs and turning away any desserts, drinks, and/or "unhealthy" items offered to you? Chances are you have. And even bigger chances are, you did great with it. You lost weight, drop a few sizes and stuck with it for as long as you could. Then you splurged, had one cookie or piece of cake, and found yourself spiraling off of your diet and straight into all of the unhealthy items you had been deprived of. You may find yourself gaining even more weight than you had lost, going up a few sizes and even bingeing on more fo...
