Painkiller Abuse a Leading Cause of Death in Ohio
Date:9/3/2013

(PRWEB) September 03, 2013

According to The Intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register article on 8/28, Curbing Abuse of Painkillers, that in Ohio, prescription drug abuse is rising at a very high rate and is a leading cause of death in the state, passing the rate of deaths on the highways. Abuse of powerful painkillers such as oxycodone and hydrocodone are the main reasons for the alarming statistics including a death rate of four people a day between 2006 and 2008, according to the Ohio State Medical Association.

Whether someone suffering from a drug dependency, it is highly important to seek the professional counseling and assistance found at a qualified detox center such as Harbor Village. A 24/7 medically supervised facility, Harbor Village allows each client to receive private drug treatment in a luxury, state-of-the art environment. Located in South Florida, clients are welcomed with upscale accommodations including a suite with satellite television, 30,000 square feet of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, Internet and NetFlix access, nutritious, gourmet dining and a results proven plan for recovery.

As posted in the article, Curbing Abuse of Painkillers, even though a new law was enacted in 2011 to slow down drug abuse, misuse of potent prescription drugs has only increased.

Abuse of prescription drugs has much in common with addiction to illegal substances such as cocaine and heroin. It can destroy families, ruin lives - and as we are seeing in Ohio, cause a high death rate.

“Drug abuse can create many health issues and cause you to lose everything. We ask that anyone who suffers from this dependency to contact a detox center such as Harbor Village to start the recovery process,” said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
