Teen Drug Addiction

Many parents need to wake up to the fact that teen drug addiction may be as close as their own home. No one wants to believe that their kid is doing drugs. But the reality is that a large percentage of teens try some type of drug at least once. That is why it is so important to keep the lines of communication open with teenagers, something that is difficult to do when their hormones are raging and they are so confused about their lives.

Yale study will be first to look at effects of war on women [New Haven Register, Conn.]

Nov. 9--In the first study of its kind, Women's Health Research at Yale will examine whether women soldiers have more trouble adjusting to post-war life than men. Rani Desai, associate professor of psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine, is the principal investigator. She also is in charge of evaluating post-traumatic stress disorder treatment programs in the Veterans Affairs Department nationwide. "The point is really to look at whether men and women differ in their post-deployment experiences," Desai said. This is the opportune time for such a study because Iraq and Afghanistan are the first wars in which significant numbers of women have seen combat. Of 2 million Americans who have fought in the two wars, about 220,000 have been women, according to a press release.
