Dear Friends,

This week, Phoenix House was featured in two major media stories about prescription painkillers. The FDA recently announced its plan to begin a pediatric trial of the highly addictive painkiller OxyContin. Yesterday, CNN aired a segment in response to this news, including an interview with a client from our Phoenix House Brentwood Community Residence. The client, Gerard, spoke about the inception of his own OxyContin addiction at age 18 and warned about the drug's risk—especially for young people. To view the CNN segment, click here.

Today, our Chief Clinical Officer Deni Carise, Ph.D., was quoted in a CBS News article on a similar topic. Deni discussed the disturbing trend of OxyContin users who switch to heroin in search of a cheaper high. To read this piece and learn more about OxyContin use, click here.

Warm regards,
Karen Sodomick
