Given the fact that drug & alcohol addictions, as well as mental health and co-occurring disorders, are such debilitating factors within modern day society, especially in light on the recent opioid epidemic nationwide, Recovery House 54 feels it to be very necessary to present an entire page highlighting the most recent news & articles industry-wide. We have essentially created what are called “RSS Feeds” and designed them to pull the most recent articles from two well regarded news outlets within the realms of substance abuse and mental health, those being: NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse) and Science Daily.
Please note that the articles and information shown below are generally going to be unbiased and factual, although there may be exceptions from time to time. An example of this may be, for instance, a press release issued by a drug rehab center that for whatever reason was picked up and published by one of the news outlets below. As such, Recovery House 54 does not officially endorse nor has any opinion on the information displayed. However, from our experience over the years, both NIDA and Science Daily have historically shown themselves to be trustworthy and unbiased sources.

This study examined the association between work performance and lifestyle habits among Japanese employees. The results revealed that insufficient sleep was the predominant factor affecting work performance in men and women, followed by lack of regular exercise and eating late-evening meals. Furthermore, the study indicated that men were more likely to exhibit lifestyle habits that impacted work performance than women.

New research shows promise in treating addiction cravings by combining eye movements and guided instructions to process memories. Researchers transformed dysfunctional memories stored in the brain through processing and integration. EMDR was as effective as cognitive behavioral therapy for cravings with the combination of both resulting in more reduction in craving than cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) alone. Both groups (experimental group and control group using only CBT) had clinically significant reductions in cravings, repetitive negative thoughts, and irrational cognitions, with the experimental group showing greater decreases overall.

Results from a new clinical trial suggest that a group of brain regions known as the 'salience network' is activated after a drug is taken intravenously, but not when that same drug is taken orally. When drugs enter the brain quickly, such as through injection or smoking, they are more addictive than when they enter the brain more slowly, such as when they are taken orally. However, the brain circuits underlying these differences are not well understood. This study offers new information that helps explain what may be causing this difference.
