Statistics show that getting sober is easy, staying sober is the hard part, and the first year of recovery is the most difficult, according to Dr. Jay B. Stockman.
"It may take a number of attempts before success is achieved. Nobody chooses to become a drug addict or alcoholic, this disease cannot be wished away, it has to be treated," he said.
Stockman has created a web site to provide free information to assist those who are looking for help with drug and alcohol rehabilitation and treatment. The site features an article on the subject, authored by Stockman.
The web site is located at http://NewDrug-Rehab-Center.com.
Drug rehabilitation is the process of medical or psychotherapeutic treatment for substance abuse. The goal of any drug rehabilitation program is to provide comprehensive drug treatment and alcohol rehabilitation services, and introduce individuals to a new lifestyle free of chemicals, according to Stockman.
"Successful treatment of substance abusers depends upon the severity and nature of the addiction, as well as motivation. Some treatment programs use medicines that neutralize the effects of the drug. Acupuncture has also been successful in treating the cravings that accompany drug withdrawal.
"Comprehensive substance abuse counseling and education is another component for a successful plan. Evaluating the efficacy of any treatment plan is difficult because of the chronic nature of drug abuse, and the fact that the disease is usually complicated by personal, social, and health factors," explained Stockman.
His web site not only provides information, it also offers resources for treatment programs and research. There is no cost associated with the use of the web site. It also includes a section of the site containing valuable articles on various aspects of drug and alcohol use and treatment.
"Addicted individuals abuse drugs without regard to the consequences of health, relationships, money, work and so on. It is a consuming disease that not only effects the individual directly, but others indirectly. If left untreated, this disease can lead to the social death, as well as the actual death of the inflicted individual.
"Proper management must be instituted immediately to return the individual to a life that is more manageable, and drug free. A program of drug rehabilitation best achieves this goal," described Stockman.
