"There is a misconception that these are problems of the down and out," says David Hooper of alcoholrehabcenters.org. "But the truth is, these issues affect everybody and don't descriminate based on income, race, religion, or anything else."
The statistics are not encouraging. According to the 2001 National Household Survey on Drug Abuse (NHSDA), a project of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the number of persons with substance dependence or abuse increased from 14.5 million (6.5% of the population) in 2000 to 16.6 million (7.3%) in 2001.
The Holistic approach to medicine and treatment holds that human beings have a body, a mind and a spirit. These elements of the human being are intertwined and exist in a delicate balance that determines positive or negative physical/mental health. The holistic method respects this balance and approaches treatment with the understanding that in order to achieve positive results this equilibrium must be restored.
"We want to show people, especially because of the very stressful holiday season that we're currently in, that there are options for those who are having problems," Hooper says.
