Help for Teen Prescription Drug Addiction
When "drug addiction" brings to mind substances such as cocaine and marijuana, it's no wonder less attention is given to the dangers of legal drugs. The non - medical use of prescription medicine is increasing especially among teenagers and has become a major public health issue with deaths related to prescription drug overdose and addiction being reported on a daily basis. With the abuse of these drugs increasing over the past t decade, so has the need for rehab centers and treatment programs.
When a teen who had been battling an addiction to alcohol and prescription drugs for 4 years, decided he really wanted to get help he faced a two-month wait to enter an addiction treatment program in his hometown. His parents called other facilities, but because they were all out of state and they did not want to stay away from their child, they made the decision to wait. Sadly, 18 days later, their son died of an overdose.
Unfortunately, loving your child has to take on a new meaning when addiction is involved, as for most parents/guardians there is no time to spare. Location of treatment should not be an issue. Although there are very few adolescent addiction treatment centers across the US, you must find the help you need even if it is somewhere across the country. BOTTOM LINE IS, DON'T WAIT. DON'T MAKE THE LOCATION TO BE AN ISSUE. A parent will suffer no greater pain than losing a child, which might be one outcome when the child is abusing drugs.
