Mental Health links

My psychology website includes a popular resource: Contacts, links and resources.

Every week, I get a number of requests for inclusion by alcohol and other drug treatment businesses. They write a genuinely useful, accurate essay about some aspect of mental health, perfectly reasonably tie it to their commercial services, and use this as a marketing exercise.

I simply cannot include them all, so for several years have been turning them away with an apology.

Instead, here is this page. Detox facilities, or anyone else with a link to a useful essay about mental health, are welcome to post a link to their essay, with a max. 200 word description.

  1. My name is Tabitha, and I create educational articles for the public.

    Many people are worried that a loved one may secretly be using drugs. That is probably why “How to Tell if Someone is Shooting Up” is our top-visited educational content. We’ve provided helpful videos to show you how to find out if a loved one is using drugs and how to get them help.

    We discuss physical signs of injections like skin popping, soot tattoos, skin infections, collapsed veins, and bruising. Also, we discuss where on the body to look for these signs of injection.

    Did you know that 11% of employees in high-level positions suffer from substance use disorder?

    Several factors can lead to addiction in executive employees including stress, burnout, and poor work-life balance. However, there are also numerous paths to recovery that allow these employees to retain their positions.

    Our latest publication explores addiction in executives, the underlying causes and behaviors, and how companies can help employees with a substance use disorder.

  3. In conversation, it may be tempting to use the words treatment and recovery interchangeably. However, while the two are very much associated, addiction treatment and addiction recovery are quite different. They are different, yet they can occur together.

    The phrase recovery is a journey is often taken out of context, but that doesn’t make it false. Although it certainly is a journey through treatment, the recovery itself is a state of constant and progressive maintenance and achievement. Still, that’s not to say that recovery is a destination. Recovery is about constant change. Facing addiction can sometimes be a lengthy process, but is designed that way to ensure the effectiveness of the program. To put it simply, treatment is a means to recovery, not the other way around.

Can be caused by nice, well-meaning parents. I’m a licensed psychotherapist and naCCT survivor, and here’s my book “No Sticks or Stones No Broken Bones”

  6. Jesse Hall says:

    Heroin deaths have dropped somewhat to be replaced with other opioids, like oxycodone. People with an addiction to opioid prescription medication may turn to heroin when prescription opioids are unavailable, and vice-versa. Heroin still accounts for a third of all opioid-related deaths.

  7. Here’s the ugly truth about anxiety and addiction.

    Almost 20% of adults diagnosed with a substance use disorder also meet the anxiety disorder criteria. That is why we wrote our guide to “Anxiety and Addiction.”

    We characterize anxiety by feelings of tension, apprehension, worry, irrational or excessive fear, and stress that produce physical symptoms like rapid heartbeat, headaches, and irritability.

    50% of those who have a mental health disorder have a substance use disorder.

  8. Hi there, I just published a 2021 guide on Veteran Substance Abuse, which I titled “A War on Home Soil. What makes this guide different is its inclusion of active service members, which many guides ignore. I discuss issues they face when deployed and when reintegrating into civilian life at home.

    2/3 of Veterans who suffered trauma report problems with drinking and drug use. Addiction to prescription painkillers is rising dramatically.

    Addiction in service members and veterans is on the rise. It’s important to address the issue with education, outreach, and services. Our small part is trying to get this helpful information out to the public.
