Education is necessary for individuals struggling with addiction to understand how the addiction is severely affecting their lives.
Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) January 13, 2012
According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 23.5 million people aged 12 or older are in need of treatment for drug abuse or alcoholism. Only 2.6 million of those people actually receive treatment.
Playing an active role in addiction education, The Recovery Place is providing information to silence the myths about alcohol and drug addiction and drug rehab that often deter people from seeking treatment. For more than 10 years, The Recovery Place has been helping individuals and families recover from addiction with an emphasis on education throughout the treatment process.
“Education is necessary for individuals struggling with addiction to understand how the addiction is severely affecting their lives,” stated Jonathan Sobelman, MS, MBA, LMHC, Executive Director at The Recovery Place. “This information is also incredibly helpful for families of addicts to understand the addiction and how to get their loved ones the help they need.”
Some of the most common myths include, “all drug rehab programs are the same” and that there is a “cure” for addiction. By setting these addiction and drug rehab myths straight, The Recovery Place looks to reduce the socio-economic impact of drugs and alcohol and encourage those struggling with addiction to get help.
Utilizing its online presence and multiple social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, The Recovery Place is taking steps forward in what promises to be an ongoing addiction education campaign.
