They may be among the more than 140,000 people in Texas who will have faced drug charges in 2011
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) October 16, 2011
Burning Tree a long term treatment center announces they are the real last stop on the block for some drug addicts and alcoholics. Citing by year’s end, alcohol abuse will have killed more than 10,000 people in California while another 2,000 die due to illicit drug use. Roughly half that many will die in New York from the same causes, while alcohol abuse and illicit drug use will end the lives of approximately 6,500 people and 1,300 people, respectively. Substance abusers who live to see January 1 may themselves become a statistic in 2012.
Minimizing the threat of a premature death is not the only objective of finding a treatment program in America. Living a healthy, productive life is also an incentive, yet many people struggle daily to break free of addictions that compromise one’s health and lead to criminal charges. They may be among the more than 140,000 people in Texas who will have faced drug charges in 2011.
One challenge is facing addictions and the subsequent behavior and lifestyle is finding more-than-adequate treatment. In many locales across the U.S., access to effective drug and alcohol treatment programs is limited or non-existent. They may also find numerous resources with short term solutions that are insufficient for handling the profound nature of their addiction.
The search for solutions has led many people to look beyond state borders to find a treatment program for themselves or a loved one. For many of them, the search has ended with Burning Tree, a long term rehabilitation facility with two locations in Texas. Addiction Specialists at Burning Tree have treated people from all 50 states, designing a custom program for each individual. The residential setting allows each recovering person to learn new skills in an environment that is distinctly different than the one they lived in prior to their arrival, giving them distance between the life they want to leave behind and the one they wish to create.
A dual diagnosis followed by treatment for co-occurring disorders, if appropriate, may provide an increased chance for long-term recovery by addressing both influences of an existing addiction. Where other treatments failed to simultaneously address an addiction and a mental health issue, Burning Tree can offer treatment and strategies for both disorders that complement, not contradict, one another. One disorder is not given preference over the other in terms of the order in which they are addressed, another important aspect in the comprehensive approach.
A relapse prevention plan becomes a key element of the recovery begun at Burning Tree. Developing a list of resources and making necessary adjustments to one’s choices and lifestyle can be tremendously beneficial in creating a stable environment while preparing an individual for how to respond in the event of a high risk situation that could lead to a relapse. Since recovery is far more challenging handled alone, the resources for support may include a 12 Step program, sponsors, group therapy and family support.
