Waismann Method Supports National Take-Back Initiative
Date:9/20/2010

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Waismann Method of Opiate Detoxification today announced its support of the first-ever National Take-Back Initiative, organized by the U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration in an effort to encourage the public to surrender expired, unwanted or unused pharmaceutical controlled medications for safe disposal. On the heels of recent reports that prescription drug abuse and overdoses throughout the country are continuing to rise, the Waismann Method urges Americans to recognize the potential dangers as well as addictive characteristics of prescription painkillers and participate in this important initiative.

Recent studies released by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reveal a significant rise in the number of prescription pain medication cases throughout the U.S., including an increase in treatment admissions involving the non-medical use of prescription pain relievers from 2.2 percent in 1998 to 9.8 percent in 2008. A report released by SAMHSA yesterday also indicates that the numbers continue to rise. The National Take-Back Initiative addresses this growing crisis by bringing greater awareness and creating educational opportunities surrounding the potential dangers of opiates.

Dr. Michael Lowenstein, co-director of the Waismann Method and board certified expert in addiction medicine, pain medicine and anesthesiology says, "With prescription pain medications more widely available now than a decade ago, it's no surprise that there is also an uptick in the number of addiction and overdose cases in U.S. hospitals. The National Take-Back Initiative, which aligns with Waismann Method's overall mission of encouraging proper medication use and living opiate-free, is a step in the right direction."
