Webinar Held for Addiction Professionals to Learn More about Chronic Pain & Substance Abuse

The Vendome Group, publisher of Addiction Professional magazine, has announced an online seminar, a.k.a.  a webinar, to help addiction therapy professionals learn the latest techniques and information surrounding addiction in relation to chronic pain. Many people who suffer from chronic pain will become addicted to drugs, mostly pain pills. Vicodin addiction is quite common amongst those who are dealing with pain on a daily basis.

Those who are interested in attending the webinar can visit Vendome’s webpage and register in advance. The webinar is set to air on March 30th, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. EST. It will discuss how physical pain can trigger the desire to use drugs. The point of the webinar is to help people who suffer from both chronic pain and drug addiction to work through both problems without sacrificing the pain relief. Special care needs to be taken with someone who has real pain complicated by addiction.

Addiction to Vicodin is a very real problem in the United States. It’s fairly easy to obtain and incredibly easy to get addicted to. Vicodin, known generically as hydrocodone, is being sold on the black market at incredibly high prices. A drug bust just recently in Santa Fe, New Mexico showed that just one bottle of the generic pain reliever was going for $150.00. With insurance and a doctor’s prescription, it’s less than $10 a bottle. Vicodin addiction can be an expensive habit with damaging results to your organs. If you have chronic pain and suffer from Vicodin addiction, consider rehabilitation that focuses on not only helping you achieve sobriety, but healing you completely. That’s what Vista Taos Renewal Center is all about. With complimentary therapies like massage and acupuncture, the pain of detox is lessened, but those who suffer from chronic pain can also feel relief. Vicodin addiction is not the answer to your chronic pain, treatment is.
