Yang Institute Announces Blog Series Addressing the Opioid Crisis


Philadephia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/23/2018 -- Yang Institute of Integrative Medicine, provider of drug-free treatments for conditions like chronic pain or postpartum depression in Bryn Mawr, PA, announced the publication of their blog series on the opioid epidemic.

With their blog series, Yang Institute seeks to educate people about the epidemic and treatments that can help combat it. The series will explore the use of non-drug therapies as safe, effective alternatives to opioids in the treatment of chronic pain. It will also detail their applications in the treatment of opioid addiction and report on relevant developments in the news.

Since the late 1990s, the use of both prescription and non-prescription opioid drugs has risen dramatically in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, opioid misuse was a factor in the death of over 42,000 Americans in 2016 - five times the number of opioid overdose deaths in 1999.

This crisis has prompted both private and government insurance providers to search for safer treatments for chronic pain than opioid medications. Thanks to the growing body of research into integrative medicine, these institutions have increasingly recognized the effectiveness of therapies like acupuncture and transcranial magnetic stimulation, both of which are offered by Yang Institute. As the fight against opioid addiction continues, these non-drug therapies for pain, depression, and addiction will only become more important.

In his book, Facing East, the founder of Yang Institute, Dr. Jingduan Yang, writes, "I believe the only way to solve America's health-care crisis and to transform our sickness-care system into a true health-care system is by encouraging more people to adopt an integrative medicine approach" (220).

The blog series, which will continue to be published in the upcoming months, can be found on Yang Institute's website, http://www.yanginstitute.com.

Combining ancient, proven therapies with innovative Western treatments is core to Yang Institute's approach to medicine. To schedule a non-drug, alternative treatment for anxiety in Bryn Mawr, PA or the surrounding areas, contact them today.
