Austin, TX (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Burning Tree Programs sees spike in young adults aged 18-24 entering treatment. This bucks the trend that Burning Tree is specifically for older adults, and at the same time lends credence to the fact that drug and alcohol abuse is starting at a younger age. To meet this trend, Burning Tree Programs have hired Aftercare Specialists to lend career guidance, money budgeting, and relationship support system.
Stephanie Bongiovi, rock star Jon Bon Jovi's daughter, was arrested in New York State on Wednesday on drug possession charges following a suspected heroin overdose, local police said.
According to Reuters, Bongiovi, 19, was found unresponsive in a dormitory room at Hamilton College in Clinton, New York from an alleged overdose and taken to a local medical facility, according to the Town of Kirkland Police Department.
Heroin and marijuana were found in the dorm room during a search, police said.
Bongiovi was later booked on misdemeanor charges of possession of a controlled substance (heroin), marijuana possession and criminal use of drug paraphernalia. She has since been released, police said.
Representatives of the singer declined to comment.
Bongiovi is the oldest of four children of rocker Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea Hurley. Bon Jovi himself has admitted to past drug abuse, but says that it didn’t last too long and he has stopped. "I did the drug thing very young and wised up very young too, because I was into drugs a little too much," he told People in 2007. "I've never been a drug guy. I've always felt I didn't have the mental stability to handle drugs."
Burning Tree Programs is equipped to handle individuals over the age of 18 that have shown an inability to stay sober. These individuals, known as “chronic relapsers,” have gone through treatment centers, experienced support fellowships, and continually find themselves drunk and high with no hope. “Burning Tree is committed to providing hope to the hopeless and help to the helpless,” says Marketing Director Michael Smith. “We provide team-building exercises, yoga sessions, and life skills specifically tailored to the young adult community while in treatment. Once clients leave inpatient treatment, Burning Tree has Aftercare Specialists to guide clients through life after they leave treatment. This provides a total care treatment process for young adults, as well as all our clients, to better equip them for life in recovery.”
Burning Tree maintains two treatment centers in Texas, near Austin and Dallas, providing long-term residential treatment for substance abuse patients from the contiguous U.S. The centers provide a dual diagnosis to determine potential co-occurring mental health disorders and substance abuse.
