Oakland Drug Detox Center Announces New Program Aimed at Stopping Initial Drug Abuse
Date:12/18/2013

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) December 18, 2013

An Oakland drug detox center is launching a new program geared toward interrupting people's tendencies toward abusing drugs after an initial try through Medical Drug Detox Center.

According to statistics released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, among persons aged 12 to 49 in 2012, the average age at first use was 16.6 years for PCP, 16.9 years for inhalants, 17.9 years for marijuana, 19.0 years for LSD, 20.0 years for cocaine, 20.3 years for Ecstasy, 22.1 years for stimulants, 22.3 years for pain relievers, 23.0 years for heroin, 23.6 years for tranquilizers, and 26.2 years for sedatives.

Heavy use of drugs like barbiturates, Darvon, Demerol, heroin and prescription drugs are not a healthy way to live. Drug detox offers a better alternative lifestyle.

"Oakland is a major West Coast port city and the busiest port for San Francisco Bay and all of Northern California," according to a Wikipedia entry. "It is the third largest city in the San Francisco Bay Area, the eighth-largest city in the state, and the 47th-largest city in the U.S. with a population at the 2010 census of 390,724. Incorporated in 1852, Oakland is the county seat of Alameda County. It serves as a major transportation hub and trade center for the entire region and is also the principal city of the Bay Area Region known as the East Bay."

Marijuana, opiates, Oxycontin and benzodiazepine addiction turns functioning individuals into non-functioning ones over time. Seeking help when recovering from alcoholism is not a sign of weakness.

Locations like Friendship House and LifeRing Secular Recovery are among many substance abuse treatment and drug detox locations in Oakland waiting to help people.

Drug addicts, especially ones using Suboxone, and alcoholics deep in their addiction will go to any lengths for their substance.

Prescription drugs, when taken under medical supervision, help the detox process. Some include Ativan, Librium, Methadone, Valium, and Naltrexone. Getting help to detox from drugs and alcohol is available in Oakland right now.
