The second book in the People Empowering People of AZ series, Arizona Poison, addresses the new threats of prescription drug abuse. In Arizona, prescriptions for medications that are often abused include painkillers like morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, and codeine, sedatives such as midazolam, hydrocodone, and alcohol misuse, including intoxication from alcohol and methamphetamines. For this reason, Arizona Poison takes on new issues in the fight against prescription drug abuse, including educating people about the dangers of prescription drugs and heroin use, educating medical professionals about prescribing medications with these harmful ingredients, and enacting new legislation. The author, Beverly Griswold, has also contributed to and wrote for a number of other magazines and publications, specializing in health and medicine, as well as working as an outreach coordinator for the Drug Treatment Center of Arizona.
In her newest book, People Envigorating People in Tempe Arizona, Griswold looks at the unique circumstances of addicts who have overcome their addiction to alcohol and drugs. She looks at the unique challenges of teaching addicted people to lead a life free of substance abuse. She examines the social implications of the problems of alcohol and drug dependency and teaches readers how to cope with these problems as well as deal with their families. This publication addresses many of the issues that arise when someone is trying to find alcohol and drug rehabilitation in Arizona. It is not only the risk involved with relapsing into drug addiction, but also the dangers to one’s family.
Following the success of its first book, People Envigorating People in Tempe Arizona, the makers of People Empowering People of AZ Incorporated, decided to expand the reach of its outpatient treatment programs. The Arizona Recovery Solutions Program now provides treatment for substance abuse on an outpatient basis. An Arizona recovery program must offer both inpatient and outpatient treatment options, and this innovative approach makes it easier for recovering addicts to remain clean and sober, while avoiding relapse. Arizona residents can search the internet to find more information on substance abuse treatment programs.
