Don’t Become Another Overdose Statistic
None of us are guaranteed tomorrow. However, when you or a loved one is battling a severe drug addiction, unfortunately there is a much higher risk of accidental death due to overdose. In fact, more than 64,000 Americans died from a drug overdose in 2016 according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
Overdose is now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50 and the trend is on the rise. The 2016 statistic jumped from the already high number of overdose deaths in 2015 which was 52,404. This is approximately a 20 percent increase!
Each one of these numbers was an actual person. Someone with family and loved ones that were left behind with nothing more than a memory. These people had hopes, dreams, plans for the future – all shattered by the harsh reality of drug addiction. Their fate does not have to be your fate. Allow our drug addiction treatment center be the turning point in your life.
Stop Your Drug Abuse Now Before it Leads to Addiction
Contrary to common misconceptions, drug abuse and addiction are not the same. Drug abuse is the use of prescription and illicit drugs persistently despite the negative effects in one’s life. However, during drug abuse, the user has not developed a physical dependency on the substance.
Drug addiction develops as a result of persistent drug abuse which leads to the physical and mental dependence on the substance. When the person becomes addicted to the drug, the brain’s chemistry has been altered and drug addiction therapy is almost always needed to recover.
If you are a loved one is abusing drugs, but not yet addicted physically, now is the time to quit. If left untreated, the habit will only grow stronger and be harder to break down the road – if your life is not cut short before that point.
