  • Increased risk of Parkinson’s disease in methamphetamine users, CAMH study finds
    dependence on an illicit drug It is important for the public to know that our findings do not apply to patients who take amphetamines for medical purposes such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ADHD since these patients use much lower doses of amphetamines than those taken by patients in our study said Dr Stephen Kish a CAMH scientist and co author To put the study findings into numbers if 10 000 people with methamphetamine dependence were followed over 10 years 21 would develop Parkinson s compared with 12 people out of 10 000 from the general population It is also possible that our findings may underestimate the risk because in California methamphetamine users may have had less access to health care insurance and consequently to medical care said Dr allaghan The current project is significant because it is one of the few studies examining the long term association between methamphetamine use and the development of a major brain disorder Given that methamphetamine and other amphetamine stimulants are the second most widely used illicit drugs in the world the current study will help us anticipate the full long term medical consequences of such problematic drug use said The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health CAMH is Canada s largest mental health and addiction teaching hospital as well as one of the world s leading research centres in the area of addiction and mental health CAMH combines clinical care research education policy development and health promotion to help transform the lives of people affected by mental health and addiction issues CAMH is fully affiliated with the University of Toronto and is a Pan American Health Organization World Health Organization Collaborating Centre Share this Email Print Facebook LinkedIn Google Twitter More Tumblr Pocket Reddit Pinterest StumbleUpon Filed Under ATOD in the media Leave a Reply Cancel reply DANA Conference Click For Details Find Us On Linked In Find more ATOD information Bing search for Drug and Alcohol Google addiction search Google News drug and alcohol New Zealand Health News Recent Posts DANA NCPIC Special Event free trianing Walk on the Wild Side with WOWs 8 Clinical Services Manager Sydney Medically Supervised Injecting Centre MSIC DANA Scholarships applications open Understanding Drugs and Addiction Kings College London Recent Comments Robin Murray on A Message from the President of DANA Margo Hickman on The Results are Out Twitter and the DANA Speak Up Conference DANAConf2014 Becoming a Credentialled Drug and Alcohol Nurse e GPS on Credentialling An update folllowing the 2012 DANA Conference Melbourne 13th 15th June 2012 on People danaexec on New Zealand Addiction Nurses Seminar Series ATOD Links Addiction Treatment Forum Online USA Alcohol and Other Drugs Council of Australia ADCA Alcohol Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test ASSIST Alcoholics Anonymous Australia Alcoholics Anonymous NZ Australian Drug Foundation Australian Drug Information Network Australian National Council on Drugs Australian Network for Promotion Prevention and Early Intervention for Mental Health Bing drug and alcohol search Community Alcohol and Drugs Services Auckland Crystal Meth Anonymous DANA on

  • New Zealand smokers are feeling the heat
    introducing health warnings on its drinks But the move has attracted the critricism of Professor Doug Sellman of the National Addiction Centre who suggested the warnings were deliberately bland and added that even accurate health warnings were unlikely to have an impact without meaningful government action Lion Nathan plainly wants to be seen as a good corporate citizen though the plan could be seen as it is being seen in Australia as an attempt at self regulation to head off official intervention Small labels won t deal with a big problem It s an axiom that our politicians must follow not lead public opinion But our world leading smokefree legislation driven by Helen Clark ignored that As a result and in barely a generation smokers have stopped lighting up where they please including in bars restaurants and workplaces where they were vastly outumbered by non smokers and are now looking at being banished from the streets The same sort of social shift needs to take place in our drinking Alcohol abuse is costing us between 1 5 billion and 2 4 billion a year depending on what harms are factored into the equation We need to begin taking ownership of the drinking culture as the country s problem rather than bleating about how a few are spoiling it for everyone All of us need to repudiate drunken behaviour just as we abjure hateful racist insult If being drunk became socially unacceptable rather than the boys having fun we would have no need of health labels on bottles Share this Email Print Facebook LinkedIn Google Twitter More Tumblr Pocket Reddit Pinterest StumbleUpon Filed Under ATOD in the media Leave a Reply Cancel reply DANA Conference Click For Details Find Us On Linked In Find more ATOD information Bing search for Drug and Alcohol Google addiction search Google News drug and alcohol New Zealand Health News Recent Posts DANA NCPIC Special Event free trianing Walk on the Wild Side with WOWs 8 Clinical Services Manager Sydney Medically Supervised Injecting Centre MSIC DANA Scholarships applications open Understanding Drugs and Addiction Kings College London Recent Comments Robin Murray on A Message from the President of DANA Margo Hickman on The Results are Out Twitter and the DANA Speak Up Conference DANAConf2014 Becoming a Credentialled Drug and Alcohol Nurse e GPS on Credentialling An update folllowing the 2012 DANA Conference Melbourne 13th 15th June 2012 on People danaexec on New Zealand Addiction Nurses Seminar Series ATOD Links Addiction Treatment Forum Online USA Alcohol and Other Drugs Council of Australia ADCA Alcohol Smoking and Substance Involvement Screening Test ASSIST Alcoholics Anonymous Australia Alcoholics Anonymous NZ Australian Drug Foundation Australian Drug Information Network Australian National Council on Drugs Australian Network for Promotion Prevention and Early Intervention for Mental Health Bing drug and alcohol search Community Alcohol and Drugs Services Auckland Crystal Meth Anonymous DANA on Facebook Drink Tank Drug and Alcohol Services Council of South Australia Drug calculations Drug Help New Zealand Drug treatment Drugfields FARE Fetal
