drug-free program may have gone too far

Implementing drug-free policies can be tricky. As the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals recently made clear, inquiries into the drug-free status of employees can cross the line of permissible conduct.Steven Williams worked for FedEx from 1989 until 2014. In 2008, he began taking OxyContin for chronic neck pain that had been caused by an automobile accident. Around 2010, Williams was prescribed Suboxone as a substitute for OxyContin. In September 2011, he sought multiple medical treatments related to side effects from Suboxone withdrawal. On Sept. 26, 2011, FedEx granted Williams a medical leave of absence.A few days later, Williams contacted FedEx's short-term-disability benefits provider, Aetna Life Insurance, to request benefits. Williams told the Aetna representative that he was suffer

dutch foster care abuse victims paid nearly €5m in damages

Photo: Depositphotos.comOver 500 people who were the victims of sexual or physical abuse as children while under the care of youth social workers have been awarded damages under a government compensation scheme, broadcaster NOS said on Saturday.In total, just under 900 people applied for compensation and some €4.8m has been paid out to 537 people, NOS said.The door was opened to compensation claims after a government commission said the government was aware of the abuse in foster homes and orphanages from 1945 but that nothing was done.‘You can hardly imagine how long that sexual abuse went on and how serious it was,’ Jan van Dijk, who heads the commission awarding the payouts said. Victims can be awarded up to €100,000 depending on the severity of the abuse.EvidenceIn 183 cases the commis

President-elect Donald Trump meets with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie at the clubhouse of Trump National Golf Club Nov. 20, 2016 in Bedminster, N.J.  DON EMMERT—AFP/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — After being unceremoniously dropped from President Donald Trump's transition team, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is dipping his toes into the administration as he takes the lead of a White House commission to combat drug addiction.Christie was at the White House Tuesday, meeting with members of the administration in preparation for the commission rollout. On Wednesday morning, he and President Trump will host an opioid and drug abuse listening session at the White House to formally kick off the effort.It's a familiar setting for the governor, who has made fighting heroin and prescription drug ab

committee to investigate sexual abuse of children at sports clubs

Photo: Depositphotos.comFormer minister Klaas de Vries (73) is going to lead an investigation into sexual abuse of children within Dutch sports clubs on behalf of sports federation NOC*NSF, sources have told the Volkskrant.The association has chosen De Vries because he has no connections with the world of sport and will not be hindered by any conflict of interest issues, the paper said.The first thing the committee is going to do is formulate its goals. ‘That is a vital part of the investigation. They will want to know how many people suffered sexual abuse and the type of cases involved,’ sports law professor Marjan Olfers told the paper.According to Olfers, who did her own research into sport related sexual abuse, the abuse in clubs is similar to the abuse which took place within the Cath

could otc medicines be the answer to alcoholism?

Researchers have long wondered if medications could treat alcohol abuse. Ihsan Salloum, M.D., chief of the Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, hopes to answer that question in part with a new clinical trial with E. Sherwood Brown, M.D., Ph.D., at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. The study is determining if two over-the-counter (OTC) medications can diminish alcohol abuse in diagnosed bipolar patients. The $2.5 million, five-year trial is currently in year two and funded by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) of the NIH. The study will gauge the effectiveness of citicoline and pregnenolone, over-the-counter medications used for improved brain function and mood control, as a treatment for alcohol abuse i

giving up cigarettes linked with recovery from illicit substance use disorders

March 7, 2017 - Smokers in recovery from illicit drug use disorders are at greater risk of relapsing three years later compared with those who do not smoke cigarettes. Results of the study by researchers at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health and the City University of New York appear online in The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry.Most adults who have illicit drug use disorders also smoke cigarettes. Yet while treatments for substance use disorders traditionally include and require concurrent treatment for addiction to all substances -- including treatment for and required abstinence from alcohol and any other illicit substance use -- treatment for nicotine dependence has not routinely been part of treatment for illicit substance use problems. "The thinking in clinical sett

New report on protecting refugee children from sexual abuseA new report focusing on the protection of children affected by the refugee crisis from sexual exploitation and abuse was presented today. Non-comprehensive data collection, inadequate reception conditions, problems with age verification and with identification of victims are among the key challenges identified.While there is no aggregated data available on the total number of children affected by refugee crisis in Europe, the European Network of Ombudspersons for Children (ENOC) assesses that in 2015 at least 337,000 children were registered as asylum seekers, 88,300 of which were unaccompanied. The states surveyed have much more difficulties to provide data or estimates on the number of children who did not seek asylum.As for the

presstv-‘uk institutions fail to resolve youth sex abuse’

A new report by British media about sexual assault by university staff against students highlights that UK institutions, including the church, schools and the news media have failed to address the sexual abuse of young vulnerable people, says an analyst in London.“We’re a having a problem which is very similar to the problem we faced with the Catholic Church, but many young people did not report this abuse until much later in life,” Javier Farje told Press TV on Tuesday.“This kind of sexual abuse against students tends to have long-term implications because we have seen in the case of the Catholic Church, how many of these young students who were abused when they were at school, still suffer the traumas of these kinds of attacks 40 years later,” Farje said.“Most universities in the UK are

usa gymnastics president resigns over sex abuse scandal

Steve Penny has resigned as president of USA Gymnastics following intensified pressure on the organization for its handling of sex abuse cases.The resignation came a week after the United States Olympic Committee's board sent a recommendation to USA Gymnastics chairman Paul Parilla requesting Penny step down.The organization said Penny informed them of the decision in a conference call.Penny joined USA Gymnastics in 1999 and oversaw one of the greatest runs in Olympic history. The success made USA Gymnastics a magnet for big-time corporate sponsors who wanted to be aligned with its healthy, winning image.That image took a serious hit in recent months following an in-depth investigation by the Indianapolis Star that portrayed USA Gymnastics as slow to act when it came to addressing allegati

Police should be allowed to consider "alternatives" to prison sentences for "low risk" offenders, according to the chief constable overseeing historical child sexual abuse investigations.Simon Bailey told The Times the system is dealing with "an unprecedented volume" of allegations regarding ongoing and historic abuse and has reached "saturation point".Police receive an average of 112 calls per day regarding child sex abuse and investigate 70,000 cases per year, an 80 per cent rise from three years ago.According to the National Association for People Abused in Childhood, there are at least 11 million adult survivors of child sexual abuse in the UK, while the NSPCC reports that more than 47,000 sexual offences against children were recorded in the UK last year."How can the police service be

presstv-sexual abuse at the catholic church

These are some of the headlines we are tracking for you in this episode of On the News Line:Priests sexual escapadesThe Roman Catholic Church, over the past few decades, has been rocked by revelations of widespread sexual abuse of children and women by priests. The latest of such reports surfaced last week in Italy where a priest was suspended from his parish over claims he used internet sites to recruit potential sex partners. Another priest is also facing defrocking as well as judicial proceedings over allegations he had dozens of sex partners. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg for sex scandals that have tarnished the Catholic Church’s reputation worldwide. Last month, an Australian commission on child abuse made shocking revelations after launching a 4 year probe. It found that 7 p

child abuse reporting system leads to parents being wrongly accused

Doctors are obliged to log all suspected cases of child abuse.A requirement for doctors to log all suspected child abuse cases has led to a significant rise in parents being wrongly accused.Since 2011 family doctors have been obliged to fill in a questionnaire if they see possible signs of abuse while examining children. Research found that in 92% of cases where the survey was employed the suspicion proved to be unfounded. For accident and emergency cases the figure was 97%.Researcher Maartje Schouten studied 5,000 assessments made in doctors’ surgeries in the Utrecht area. In 1% of cases a child was later reported as having been abused even though the survey detected no sign of wrongdoing.Schouten said the structure of the form should be changed and doctors needed to approach the subject
