  5. Drug Addiction and Drug Treatment: You Are Not Alone


drug addiction and drug addiction treatmentOne of the most common emotions expressed by our clients and their loved ones is the feeling of isolation and loneliness. These people come to The Hills drug rehabilitation center believing that their situation is not only unique, it is desperate.

The truth is that drug addiction and alcoholism are serious problems in the U.S. and elsewhere. This is both good news and bad news to those affected by an addiction. On the one hand, it may provide some relief that others are experiencing the same problems. On the other hand, society pays a very high price for these addictions.

The statistics are startling. In a typical year, over 2 million emergency room visits are reported that relate to the misuse or abuse of drugs. Put another way, it is over 5,000 visits per day or approximately 200 per hour. Note that this does not include alcohol-related incidents.

There is no trend toward a particular type of drug that causes these visits, but recent statistics have shown a spike in the use of heroin. Some visits are the result of multiple drug uses such as mixing heroin and meth or alcohol and a prescription or illegal drug. Surprisingly, the single largest category of drug-related visits to the ER involves prescription drugs alone, that is, there is no concurrent use of alcohol or another drug.

These are the reported statistics in just one area. Consider now the millions of cases that are not reported to any government agency or treatment facility. What cannot be reported are the emotional scars caused by an addiction to drugs or alcohol. Though the addiction effect is devastating, there is no accurate way to report the toll on the personal lives of the addicts or their loved ones, including:

  • Job loss and the subsequent inability to get rehired
  • Possible criminal record
  • Divorce
  • Children who often suffer silently through the process
  • Financial ruin
  • Personal and family shame

In other word, they got through it. You can, too.
