Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Treatment Center In VA Warns Of Unregulated Prescription Opioids From Dentists

July 18, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Richmond, Virginia based FCCR Radford was recently featured in local news, where a few of their key staff were interviewed on the unregulated prescription of opioids and other heavy painkillers to teens, following emergency dental treatments. The center warns that some doctors are over-prescribing heavy painkillers, which is why they advise families to request alternative medications to help fight opioid addiction.

“Several dental treatments can be very painful, but someone who is getting their wisdom teeth removed does not need a 30-day prescription of opioids. We don’t want people to be in pain, but there are also a lot of alternative medications that are safer yet offer the same level of effectiveness,” says Nani Moskal, an adolescent substance abuse expert at FCCR Radford. Moskal states that it is important for families to ask their dentist whether there are other ways to address the treatment other than prescribing highly addictive opioids.

This is in line with the alarming statistics that were recently published in the journal, Pediatrics, which states that 15% of teens received opioid prescription during emergency room visits, and nearly 60% of those who had emergency visits to the dentist also walked out with an opioid prescription. The psychiatrist further explains that addiction can be a hereditary illness, so it is crucial for parents and guardians to be more conscious in monitoring teens who might be susceptible to addiction.

As noted on their website, FCCR Radford is a Richmond outpatient treatment center that offers a wide variety of services, including adolescent and adult intensive outpatient and inpatient treatments, medication-assisted treatment services, and continuing care for adults and adolescents suffering from drug addiction. “If you or someone you know is abusing drugs, alcohol, or pharmaceuticals, our proven, evidence-based treatment methods make a lasting recovery possible. We offer inpatient and outpatient programs, medically assisted detox, and other individualized treatment plans to help transform lives and help families return to their normal lives,” affirms Moskal.

Furthermore, FCCR Radford’s core treatment services include Clinical Evaluation, Education Classes on Substance Use Disorders, Individualized Treatment Plans, and so on. The center also states that their treatment methods focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Medication Management, Relapse Prevention, Stages of Change Life Skills, Meditation Groups, and Motivational Interviewing (MI). They are also a part of the Pinnacle Treatment Centers Network, a recognized leader in providing comprehensive substance use services.

All of FCCR Radford’s locations in Indiana, Kentucky, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia are CARF accredited, and include credentialed physicians, nurses, clinicians, and administrative and support staff. Furthermore, FCCR Radford is one of the leading rehabilitation centers in the greater Virginia area, based on a number of positive reviews and recommendations received online. In fact, they have an average 4.5/5.0 rating on the Google review platform.

“By offering a variety of treatments, we can find the right treatment for each of our patients. We don’t try to force them into a box, but help them find what is right for them. Our full continuum of quality care includes detoxification for residential and outpatient clients as well as transitional living programs where we provide a holistic approach to treat the individual’s physical, emotional, spiritual, and psychological well-being,” says Moskal.

FCCR Radford’s patients also receive a comprehensive medical assessment from their team of licensed and experienced physicians, nurse practitioners, and licensed nurses who will create a personalized treatment plan that is designed to help the patient heal and return to a happier and healthier life. In addition to this, the center offers patient-focused care that supports the flexibility they need to transition through every stage of recovery, where patients are exposed to an encouraging environment which will help them repair the relationships they care about the most.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Jan 21, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jan 21, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Jan 21, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

Jan 21, 2020

NEW YORK — ABC News faced questions Tuesday about its reluctance to air a sensitive story of alleged sexual misconduct after a leaked video emerged of reporter Amy Robach complaining about how her bosses handled an interview with a Jeffrey Epstein accuser.

Robach made her remarks late in August while sitting in a Times Square studio with a microphone but not on the air. ABC said Tuesday that the...
