America – 160 Overdose Deaths From Legal and Illegal Drugs Every Day

Rockers In Recovery® – Media

Dr.-Kenneth-Blum

Kenneth Blum, Ph.D., DHL

Today I have some really exciting news to share with you bringing new hope to the entire Rockers In Recovery Network of friends and associates. For years people of all walks of life have struggled with a unwanted romance with an excessive drive for drugs and sex leading them down a pathway to eventual uncontrollable and sometimes fatal outcome that scientist now call Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS). Many of us know the feeling of loosing the power over our destiny when it comes to moderating our desire to get high. In today’s new world we are living in a scary time involving not only every day stresses of life but the terror of being gun downed even in a relaxing setting.

In America alone there are 110 overdose deaths from legal and illegal drugs every day. The heroin death toll has quadrupled in the decade that ended in 2013, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. By all accounts, it has only grown worse since. The national drug-death total, larger than that from auto accidents, is disproportionately concentrated in the Rust Belt, the Great Lakes region and the Northeast.

Lets take a look at Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS);

The human brain produces a number of “feel good” chemicals–from Serotonin and Dopamine, to Norepinephrine, GABA and Endorphins–all of which work together to produce feelings of well-being.

When levels of these “feel good” chemicals are low or blocked from the brain’s receptors; pain, discomfort and agitation will result. This “Reward Deficiency” is associated with mood instability, anxiety, hypersensitivity and depression.

Individuals who have a family history of alcoholism, other addictions or attention deficit disorder may have been born with an inability to produce or utilize “feel good” chemicals in the same way as people who do not have this genetic variant. Specifically, the Dopamine genes, have been linked to these disorders. People who have these defective genes lack a sufficient number of Dopamine receptors in their brains to produce the “neurochemical brain reward cascade,” creating Reward Deficiency Syndrome (RDS). In non-genetic RDS people exposure to prolonged periods of pain, stress and/or other drugs can also lead to a corruption of the “brain cascade function.” It is often quite difficult to determine, however, which came first–the Chicken or the Egg – the genetic defect or the environment which turns on these genes (Epigenetics). In either case, those suffering from RDS are unable to produce a feeling of well-being and consequently often self-medicate with substances or high risk adrenalin activities that help raise the levels of “feel good” chemicals in their system–if only temporarily.

It helps them feel good and function better with less angst, agitation and emotional pain. These substances often include alcohol, nicotine, stimulants, illicit drugs, junk foods, sugars, carbs or thrill-seeking behaviors such as bungee or base jumping, gambling, sex or the Internet porn/games results in a prolonged absence of Dopamine with depressive and hopelessness conditions will appear.

Unfortunately, if a person is trying to treat this condition with self-medicating with the chemicals and/or activities listed above it will only provide short term temporary relief while unknowingly developing the possibility of long-term consequences

So what if there was a safe side effect free way in which we could actually find relief from daily stress and even combat the ongoing inborn error that sets us up to excessively use and abuse drugs. Yes my friends I struggle with these constant demos just like many of you-trying to stay clean and sober. Just to put this perspective I have been told that 100 million of us living in America alone have gene variations that makes us prone and vulnerable to high addiction risk.
