Doctors discuss cyber wellness, alcohol addictions, reproductive care at annual meeting – Local – The Guardian
Rice once again grips every reader’s mind by presenting another thrilling mystery novel. “Sex and Drug Addiction And The Insanity of It All” introduces readers to four individuals and their addictions , and let readers see how each of them combats the dark shadow that seems to feed on their addictions. In his latest novel, Rice tells a story that highlights the addictive behaviors and the associated consequences which eventually lead to the physical and emotional destruction, of possibly some of the most exciting and dynamic characters he has ever created in his mystery writing career. Within the pages of this new tale, readers will see how dark and ominous addicts can become when they can never overcome their addiction even inside treatment centers. Jimmy Lee was the person whose military career ended after a tragic accident and later on became addicted to prescription pain medication. Then there’s Barbara, she was a woman whose sexual needs could not be satisfied by her husband, and she finds ways to fulfill her sometimes incestuous needs. There is also Neil, the male woman- chaser who doesn’t know which way to turn and found doubt in what he believed was the truth. And finally there is Toni, the character that you must read about in this novel to truly understand the intense insanity that controlled his or maybe her every behavior. All of these exciting characters are eventually consumed by the dark shadow of their own personal and quite often deadly addictions. Deeply-rooted on the current plague in humanity, this mystery novel presents the realities of the psychological consequences associated with addiction, and the components of therapy treatment directed toward the volatile drug and sexual abuses that definitely alters life of the people it enslaves and damages the personality of those patients afflicted with the disease of ‘Addiction.’

159th annual meeting was held at Stanley Bridge Country Inn on Saturday to discuss three resolutions including cyber wellness, alcohol addictions and reproductive care. Dr. David Bannon, president of the society, said the emergence of the Internet and the Internet culture creates certain problems society hasnt had to deal with before and cyber bullying is one of them. That is a very challenging issue that needs attention, Bannon said. Chris Simpson, president of the Canadian Medical Association, said the traditional way people used to be bullied, in the schoolyard with words and at times physical violence, has given way to the digital environment of cyber bullying. Its a bit more insidious because you cant necessarily see that it is happening. Simpson said its their intent to develop a pilot project to view and deal with it differently. As part of the resolution, the medical society has partnered with Parry Aftab, an expert in the area of cyber wellness. The second resolution discussed was alcohol addictions on P.E.I. which Simpson said is a disease that crosses all social spectrums. The key is to develop programs that can help people recognize and treat these addictions in a non-judgmental way instead of casting people to the outside to recover from a difficult problem. The third resolution discussed was reproductive care and Dr. Jerry OHanley, co-chair of the health care and promotion committee of the medical society, said he feels the program was much more dynamic in days gone by.

The costly addictions of Iron Man, Sherlock, and more – CNET
Or a crime-solving genius. Or a damsel-in-distress-rescuing strongman. So sometimes, like live humans, fictional characters feel they need a little help to face life’s challenges. And sometimes that help can come in the form of substances that cause serious harm. A bit of white powder here. A glug glug of beer there. In short, in fiction, there are often addictions. A graphic released Tuesday by substance abuse recovery site Withdrawal.net rounds up 31 popular characters from movies and television and digs into their particular habits — and how much they cost. It’s fiction, but “the reality of substance abuse is brought to life every day” by these characters, the site argues, and so — at least sometimes — are the consequences. Some of these characters grapple with substances that can cause grave problems in real life. Other “substances,” like spinach, could be considered a healthy habit.

Then there’s Popeye, whose downing of cans of spinach with wild, one-eyed abandon (and what about that pipe, eh?) would cost him about $50 a month.
