Is it dangerous to crack your back if you've had a spinal fusion?

There is always the possibility of a breakdown in the integrity of the adjacent spinal segments, and such techniques would cause more stress at these areas of future risk. ...Read more

Need help for a dual diagnosed person. My husband is bipolar and is addicted to alcohol and crack cocaine. He has medicare and federal blue cross and blue shield. He is danger to himself and family. I baker acted him numerous times but his psychiatrist ge

In: In the state of florida, the marchman act addresses getting help for individuals with serious problems with substance abuse, who are not open to treatment. This law can help families through the courts to get loved ones into court ordered and court monitored "intervention assessment stabilization, or detoxification, and long-term treatment". A family member can petition the court.
Under the baker act, which is specific for psychiatric conditions, even if he has known psychiatric diagnoses, his doctor can only detain him against his will for a brief period unless there is court intervention and he is deemed to be at imminent risk to self or others.
I suggest you obtain legal advice. Additionally, do not remain in the home iwith your spouse if you are afraid that you or your son are in danger. You can ask the police who intervened for local contact information regarding domestic violence advocacy. If is important that a safety plan be developed. "knights of kindness" lists a number of florida resources that may be beneficial. ...Read more
