ScaleMatrix, a San Diego based front-runner in the evolving Cloud and Colocation market, announced today that it has recently been issued Service Organization Controls reports after successfully demonstrating adherence to both the SSAE 16 SOC 1 Type 2 and AT 101 SOC 2 reporting schemes, as published by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).

Now commonplace, the SSAE16 controls report is the replacement for the retired SAS 70 predecessor.

ScaleMatrix can now share the successful results of these audited controls, including all five trust areas, with clients requiring support for Title 21 Part 11, 45 CFR parts 160-164, HIPAA, SOX, or like solutions.

Creed Bratton
Event on 2013-04-06 20:00:00
Creed Bratton is an American actor and musician, a former member of The Grass Roots with hits like “Let’s Live for Today” and “Midnight Confessions”. Nowadays, he is best known for playing a fictional version of himself on the American adaptation of the hit television show “The Office” on NBC.

Creed's show is a musical journey. He'll play a selection of songs from his beginnings in folk with the "Young Californians,” complete with his comic tales of hitch hiking through Europe and Africa in the 60's, a candid account of his insane time with the "Grass Roots" and the often touching yet still funny stories of his down and out days before he made it on "The Office.” All the while, he will be playing songs from his six solo albums, with perhaps even a GrassRoot tune thrown in. You'll laugh you'll cry and wet your seat. Creed Bratton is an enigma to himself……even though he'll deny it. He expects to be sued by all "The Office" cast members after this tour.

Novus Medical Detox Case Study Proves Methadone Detox a Success

New Port Richey, FL (PRWEB) December 17, 2012

Methadone accounted for a mere 2% of prescriptions in 2009, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data that spans 10 years and 13 states, but was responsible for 30% of prescription-painkiller deaths (1). With statistics that alarming, it is hard to believe that there are proven ways to prevent this from happeningbut there are. Novus Medical Detox specializes in high-dose methadone cases and has a 90% patient completion rate. The following case study depicts those cases wherein Novus is able to help get people back to their normal lives. The facts and people are real, although names have been changed to protect patient confidentiality.

For Joe, a New Jersey resident, life started out normal. What started as a road to success quickly turned to a struggle. Joe started off smoking marijuana as a Junior in High School and from there, went through the gateway to harder and more addictive drugs. Experimenting with LSD, ecstasy and speed, Joe then resorted to heroin by the end of his senior year. To try to stop the cravings, he started taking Xanax, but that turned out to be another addiction. After that, he traded one habit for anothermethadone. By the age of 22, having been on drugs for over four years, he knew his days were numbered.

When Joes family brought him to Novus Medical Detox to get his life back, he was put on a tailor-made medical program that fit his needs, drug history and physical condition. Unlike other one protocol fits all programs, Novus pays particular attention to strengthening each patients body through a proprietary IV-vitamin mix that is personalized to each individual in order to make the detox process as painless as possible. The vitamin cocktail is an advanced medical finding that allows Novus to handle the toughest of methadone cases.

Novus helps patients take that first step toward reclaiming their lives from drugs, and provides the nurturing, supportive environment they need in order to do so. Joe was no exception.

When I first decided to come to Novus, I was scared and unsure of the outcome of sobriety, and of being vulnerable to abuse again. Since my stay at Novus, I am away from the liquid handcuffs and have gained hope in sobriety, in myself, and the chance to have a true life of real friends, a good job, and happiness.

Although scared by previous losses with detox facilities, Joe successfully detoxed from methadone and Xanax in 14 days.

While cold turkey withdrawals have a success rate of less than 5%, Novus detox programs have a high success rate due to their medical team being trained on how to keep patients from getting sick during the withdrawal process, leading to many completing detox in less than two weeks.

At Novus:

Each patient is treated individually using state-of-the-art medical protocols in combination with natural supplements, nutritious meals and extensive use of nutrient-enriched IV treatments.

Patients have 24/7 access to nursing care and withdrawal specialist assistance.

Patients are given instructions on how to continue with vitamins and helped to select an after-care program.
