Actor Says Stay At Detox Center Helped With Painkiller Addiction

Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 20, 2013

As reported in an article by HealthDay News (9/10) titled Reality TV Star Discusses Addiction Recovery, actor Michael Sorrentino is one of 22 million American who has had an issue with prescription drugs. According to the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), about 22 million Americans are abusing prescription painkiller drugs. These prescriptions were initially prescribed for them or someone else. Sorrentino says that he was injured after the program Dancing with the Stars, was prescribed painkillers and became addicted. The actor received professional assistance at a substance abuse clinic in Utah, enrolling in a detox program.

Prescription drug abuse usually starts with one doctor authorized prescription and can escalate to a life threatening problem. Only a certified, 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village is qualified to assist clients who are suffering from prescription drug issues.

At Harbor Village, a trained team of medical professionals helps clients achieve recovery from both drug and alcohol addiction. Located in South Florida, each client experiences private drug treatment in a luxury, state-of-the-art environment. Featuring upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, Harbor Village also offers over an acre of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining, limo pickup and transportation to anywhere in Florida, and the personalized support of a caring, attentive staff who is with each client every step of the recovery process.

According to Reality TV Star Discusses Addiction Recovery, Jeffrey Parsons, an addiction expert and psychology professor at Hunter College in New York City explains the rapidly rising abuse of prescription drugs. "I think the number of people who are now addicted to prescription drugs, particularly painkillers, is significantly greater than cocaine. Because access is easier, because it's legally obtained and because many are under the impression that since it's prescribed it's safer and not going to cause the same damage as a hard drug would."

“Prescription drug abuse can strike anyone from any age or background. If you're suffering from a prescription drug dependency, check into a detox center such as Harbor Village as soon as you can,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
