The simple and plain truth, is that women deal with emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental factors and stimuli in a much different way than men do. This being said, any serious issues affecting a woman's emotional, physical, spiritual, and mental health, must be dealt with in a manner much different than for a man with similar issues. Nowhere is this more obvious, than with the treatment of mental and behavioral conditions in women, when drug use and/or addiction is involved.
Many reports and studies that have been released in recent years, point to several key differences between an woman with an addiction, and a man with an addiction. For instance, recent studies have shown that women are much more likely to become physically dependent alcohol in 18 - 34 age range; however, women in this age range are also more likely to have an easier time in 12 step recovery programs, and are more likely to kick the addiction, than men in the same age group. Adversely, when men and women reach the age of 34, the numbers reverse themselves. Men in this latter age group tend to reach full-blown alcoholism more quickly than women; however alcoholics above 34 that are men, have an easier time kicking alcohol than women in this demographic. When it comes to certain types of drug addiction, the numbers waiver again, back and forth.
The factors that affect these back-and-forth swings in addiction trends, are still not understood fully. More research and studies must be undertaken before we can fully understand the effects of addiction on the brain, and how those effects should be properly treated.
What behavioral health professionals and drug rehab specialists do understand, is that there is a necessity for drug treatment programs that are specifically designed for a man fighting addiction, or for a woman fighting addiction. By having gender-specific recovery efforts in-place, drug treatment programs are more likely to be successful, and the recovering addict is much more likly to have a successful long term addiction recovery.

When you have put yourself on a diet plan, you begin to notice just how many food items out there are either bad for you, should be eaten sparingly, or should be avoided at all costs. This can leave the dieter feeling even more starved for real food that tastes good and is good for you.
Thankfully, the demand for tasty low carb snacks and healthy sweets is high enough to bring about several great options to satisfy your craving, without suffering the disappointment of cheating on your diet plan.
Linda's Diet Delites, is one of my favorite brands to reach for whenever I am dieting, but need a quick bite of something comforting.

Of all of the wonderfully entertaining and informative articles that one of my favorite website's runs on a daily basis, there was a recent article that caught my eye, and had me engaged from the get-go. The article was on Alzheimer's Disease and effective ways to prevent its onset. The topic of Alzheimer's is a very important one for me, as Alzheimer's -- and dementia -- runs heavily in my family. I have always been worried about this, but try not to think of it too often, as there is not very much that can be done to a person afflicted with Alzheimer's once it has set in.
This article, however, gave the reader something positive to focus on: prevention. Highlighting some of the many ways one can prevent Alzheimer's, through diet and mental exercise, was refreshing and informative. Instead of focusing on the fear and detriment of the disease, I now had several options that I could integrate into my daily routine that would lower my risk for Alzheimer's.
While diet does play a role in Alzheimer's prevention, exercise of the mind seems to be one of the best utilities in prevention. Playing games, solving puzzles and regularly putting your brain to the test are all great ways to strengthen the mind and keep it sharp throughout age. With this advice, I am ready to go to the store, buy a few Sudoku and crossword puzzles, and read another article from Healthy Women.
