Harbor Village Florida comments on Massachusetts General Hospital taking steps to spot drug addicts.

(PRWEB) July 03, 2014

As reported by South Coast Today in the article MGH To Screen All Patients For Substance Abuse (6/30), the Massachusetts General Hospital has began to ask all patients routine questions about their drug and alcohol use as a way to intervene in possible addiction cases. The questionnaire, which asks patients general questions about their level of alcohol use and their yearly drug use, will be used to prompt an addiction team to hold a bedside intervention, in which doctors can determine if a patient has a substance abuse problem. In the past, Massachusetts General Hospital has only asked emergency room patients about their drug and alcohol use. Hospital officials believe that this new strategy can help save money and improve the quality of treatment amongst patients. Some doctors acknowledged the hidden health issues that can stem from substance abuse, such as heart disease and high blood pressure.

It is true that both alcohol and illegal drugs can cause many negative effects on your health. Alcohol is known to cause liver damage, high blood pressure, cardiovascular problems, and early aging. Other illegal drugs can cause brain damage, cardiovascular damage, and nerve damage. They can also dangerously alter body temperature, motor skills, and judgment. Prescription drugs, even though prescribed by a doctor, can also cause illicit effects when not taken as per the directions. Anybody who is currently struggling with a substance abuse doctor can consult with a drug rehab center to start taking care of their health.
