Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

Co-Occurring Populations (Substance Use Disorder and Mental Health)

I attended a recent training on the clinical supervision of clinicians working with Co-Occurring Populations.  The training was well done, but wanted to share a few things about the effects of drugs on people.
Mouse Party is a program developed by the University of Utah to look at the physical effects of drugs on the brain.  Drugs can be so addictive because the effect the inner workings of the brain.  It is interesting to see the explanations of how the drug effects the brain which is where the pleasure is sensed and the addiction happens.
