Lighthouse Treatment Center Launches Vaping Awareness Campaign

October 21, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Anaheim, California – The Lighthouse Treatment Center, a drug and alcohol recovery facility in Anaheim, California, has launched an awareness campaign that aims to spread critical information about vaping and the risks associated with this habit.

The campaign “Vaping Epidemic: Know the Risks” will make use of the Lighthouse website, blog pages, and social media channels that are accessible to the public. A downloadable vaping fact sheet that will provide an easy-to-digest overview about vaping will also be available.

Peter Davidson, President of the Lighthouse, shared that this campaign is a response to the rise in vaping among treatment residents, the recovery community, and local community members.

“The recent outbreak of vaping-related illnesses across the United States has raised serious concerns on the safety of vaping. As a treatment provider committed to the wellbeing of our local community, the Lighthouse is doing its part by offering online resources that can educate people on the potential risks of vaping,” said Davidson.

The popularity of vaping has increased with more than 3.6 million Americans reportedly hooked on the habit. According to Dr. Preet Joneja, PsyD, clinical director of the Lighthouse, opposing views exist in the literature about the innocuousness and aftereffects of vaping.

“Prior to launching this campaign, we at the Lighthouse took a closer look at the surrounding literature about vaping, views of local community users, and the controversy over its health risks. On one side of the argument, practitioners and policy makers insist that the use of e-cigarettes utilizes the harm minimization strategy of addiction to reduce harmful effects of conventional cigarettes. The other side pledges that, even though there are lower levels of carcinogens than conventional cigarettes, vaping exposes users to other toxins that lead to cardiovascular risks and lung disease,” said Dr. Joneja.

Dr. Joneja added, however, that a majority of vape users are still not well informed about the potential dangers of vaping. “This campaign aims to provide our community with helpful resources on vaping health risks. For people who would like to quit vaping, we are also offering information on evidenced-based prevention and cessation treatment options and treatment of addictive lifestyle behaviors.”

On streets of Tehran, relief for now at no wider conflict

Jul 2, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian newspapers proclaimed the country's attack on U.S. forces in Iraq to be "a dark night for Americans," and Washington's "first admission of failure in history." On the bustling streets of Tehran, however, there was relief Thursday that neither side appeared primed for war. “War is not something like the ‘Call of Duty’ game," said Dara Shojaei, a 23-year-old architecture student. “It's not a game you can play to win. There's no winner.” But with the relief came some mixed feelings about how far Iran should go to avenge the killing of Revolutionary Guard Gen. Qassem Soleiman,...

Stocks rise as China confirms trade deal signing next week

Jul 2, 2020

NEW YORK — U.S stocks climbed in morning trading on Thursday as investors cheered confirmation from China that its top trade official will head to Washington next week to sign a preliminary trade deal. The “Phase 1” accord is the opening step on a possible path toward a broader agreement between the nations. President Donald Trump has said he will travel to Beijing after the initial signing to start the second stage of talks. Every major index is on track for a record as Wall Street distances itself from a bout of anxiety over the last week because of tensions...

Innovative fashion designers lead the way on sustainability

Jul 2, 2020

LONDON — Innovative fashion designers are turning to such things as horseradish and nettles to make sustainable clothing and accessories to the delight of a growing number of buyers. While more consumers are paying closer attention to how the production of goods impacts the environment, old habits die hard. A buy-and-toss mentality persists despite a boost from celebrities helping to drive the upcycle and vintage movements. Actress Maggie Q, who created an activewear line from recycled fabrics, is among activists who see plenty of room for improvement. She says she feels "sick about fast fashion.'' "You hear people say, 'Well,...

Space Force will start small but let Trump claim a big win

Jul 2, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is celebrating the launch of Space Force, the first new military service in more than 70 years. In signing the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act that includes Space Force, Trump on Friday can claim a victory for one of his top national security priorities just two days after being impeached by the House. It is part of a $1.4 trillion government spending package — including the Pentagon's budget — that provides a steady stream of financing for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border fence and reverses unpopular and unworkable automatic spending cuts to defense and domestic programs. Space...

House passes $1.4T government spending bill amid impeachment

Jul 2, 2020

WASHINGTON — The Democratic-controlled House voted Tuesday to pass a $1.4 trillion government spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border fence while giving Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. The hard-fought legislation also funds a record Pentagon budget and is serving as a must-pass legislative locomotive to tow an unusually large haul of unrelated provisions into law, including an expensive repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health plans, help for retired coal miners, and an increase from 18 to 21 in the nationwide legal age to buy tobacco products. The two-bill package,...
