New Orleans Treatment Center Announces Program to Fight Off Rising Tide of Drug, Alcohol Abuse
Date:11/18/2013

New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) November 18, 2013

A New Orleans treatment center is announcing a new program that will help stop increased usage of drugs and alcohol in New Orleans through the help of Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

According to a 2012 report from the Greater New Orleans Drug Demand Reduction Coalition, heroin, cocaine and prescription drugs are the predominant illicit drug threats to New Orleans. Also, 30 percent of New Orleans 10th-graders drink and 12 percent have engaged in binge drinking within a two-week period, according to the report. Of these students, 75 percent of them received alcohol from acquaintances or family members over the age of 21.

Through awareness via these statistics, more people are in need of drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

A first step toward stopping drug use is drug detoxification. It is used to reduce or relieve withdrawal symptoms while helping the addicted individual adjust to living without drug use. The program offers a collective style of treatment options for clients.

This is followed by counseling and therapeutic help and support. Learning to navigate through everyday life without drugs and alcohol is akin to giving someone traveling through different states and/or nations a map and directions. Adults and adolescents will understand that this is a process, one that is not over in a matter of days. The substance abuse treatment center helps people rebuild their lives from the inside out.
