Most Popular Drug in U.S. by Decade

Drugs are a popular topic in today’s media. From the war on drugs, the widespread legalization of marijuana, or the opioid crisis, it’s hard to miss a conversation that revolves around drugs.  This isn’t news, though. Drugs have been around for a long time. In fact, drug use has been ingrained in societies for thousands of years. Here at Rehabs.com, it’s important for us to look at historic trends to see how drug use has affected people since drug use began. But, since that kind of historical data doesn’t exist, we decided to scale down our research and look at a smaller timeline – the past few decades. We went through the National Survey on Drug Use and Health from 1979 through 2017* from SAMHSA and compiled the data to figure out what the most popular drug is by decade. Take a l...

Breaking Down Drug & Alcohol Mentions in TV Shows

It’s no secret that drug and alcohol-related content is some of the most engaging out there. People can’t get enough of content like AMC’s Breaking Bad, Showtime’s Weeds, and USA’s Queen of the South; so much so that they consistently tune in to their favorites, even if the underlying message is questionable. That’s why it’s no surprise that drugs and alcohol have made their way into – and even become central themes – of some of the most popular shows of all time. It’s as simple as this: supply and demand.  Honestly, we get it. Drug and alcohol-related tv shows are interesting and engaging if not always entirely accurate. But when our favorite shows fail to highlight the realistic repercussions of drug and alcohol use, that’s when they fall into dangerous territory.  While we all ...

The Correlation Between High School Dropout Rates and Drug Use

High school can be difficult for a number of reasons. It can be academically challenging, highly stressful as college preparation ramps up, and often includes a lot of social pressure to act or do as the “in crowd” does. All in all, there is a lot on high school students’ shoulders during this period. Unfortunately, this can lead to dropouts. Students will leave high school without finishing for a number of reasons, and many of these overlap with the reasons teens experiment with drugs. Feeling like they don’t belong, feeling immense stress, feeling depressed — each of these can push a student over the edge. With this in mind, we decided to look further into how high school dropout rates correlate with drug use across the U.S. Read on to learn more about our study — we start with ...

The next cybersecurity headache: Employees know the rules but just don’t care

Employees are still ignoring cybersecurity best practice despite being more aware of the risks. Cybersecurity has shot to the top of many IT leaders' priorities over the past few months as remote working became the de facto way of doing business. Yet despite more awareness of the security risks of working from home, employees are still showing a lax attitude when putting it into practice, according to new findings. Security firm Trend Micro surveyed more than 13,000 remote workers across 27 countries for its latest Head in the Clouds survey, which sought to understand individuals' attitudes towards risk in terms of cybersecurity.

Zoom: We’ve delivered on all of our security and privacy promises, apart from one

CEO Eric Yuan said the company had been working to improve safety, privacy and security, but has pushed back the date for its transparency report. The meteoric rise of videoconferencing platform Zoom during the global lockdowns was accompanied by criticism of its cybersecurity standards. As more remote workers turned to Zoom for business meetings, virtual get-togethers and other forms of socially distanced communication, it soon became apparent that security –thanks to headaches such as a wave of ' Zoom-bombing ' – was an area that needed more work. As a result, Zoom CEO Eric Yuan launched a 90-day programme that pledged to addre...

You Decide What To Do

“I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.” – Stephen Covey, author of self-improvement books and seminars (1932-2012)Looking at the future, if your vision is clouded by uncertainty or worry, there’s something you can do to change that. Take action. A little appreciated but very valuable truth is that you’re not destined to be molded by what happens to you or even what circumstances you’re born into. You are, however, very much a product of the choices you make and the actions you take. Quite simply and beautifully, you decide what to do.Then, of course, you need to do it. Nothing will change in your future – indeed, even today – if you fail to act. Making the tough choices is sometimes difficult, but not impossible. The way you get there is to map out a plan,...

Insight – First Sign Of Waking Up

“The first sign of waking up is the insight that we are not doomed to retrace our steps forever.” – Mingyur RinpocheUpon getting up in the morning, what’s the first thought that pops into your head? Is it the mountain of things on your to-do list? Is it disappointment that you can’t sneak in a few more winks? Do you eagerly anticipate some activity you plan to do today? Sometimes it may seem like we can’t make any headway, that there’s too much on our plate, and we’re probably going to fail anyway. Sometimes, however, just the opposite is true and we can’t wait to get started on what we want to do.Here’s a slightly different way to look at waking up: Consider that our first clue that we’re waking up to life and its possibilities is the insight that we can make significant changes – we’re n...

Live The Questions To Find The Answers

“If you live the questions, life will move you to the answers.” – Deepak Chopra, Indian-American physician, a holistic health/New Age guru, and alternative medicine practitioner (born 1947)These are wise words from a person that millions find inspirational and insightful. The fact that everyone sometimes finds it difficult to figure out the answers to seemingly impossible or complex questions doesn’t negate the fact that there are ways to go about finding the right path – if we choose to do so. The secret seems to be to embrace the questions and live them, not do everything we can to avoid them, as if in so doing they’ll somehow go away. They won’t. It’s only by living in the present and doing our best to address the questions that we’ll have any hope of finding the answers.The quest isn’t...

Believe You Are Valuable And Worthwhile

“You are always a valuable, worthwhile human being – not because anybody says so, not because you’re successful, not because you make a lot of money – but because you decide to believe it and for no other reason.” – Wayne Dyer, American self-help author and motivational speaker (1940-2015)Beaten, downtrodden, feeling like a failure and finding no hope in the future – these are the harsh realities that we sometimes face. No one, however, is more critical than we are of ourselves. Herein lies the truth: We can reverse such negative feelings – if we choose to do so.Just because others say we’re no good, can’t do anything right, are worthless and without value doesn’t make it so. By the same token, what others say about our successes, whether to our face or to someone else, while it’s comforti...
