Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
According to a Healthday article reported on 8/28 Mental and Substance Disorders Major Cause of Nonfatal Illnesses, that globally, more people are suffering from substance abuse and mental disorders than any other nonfatal health issue. This research was conducted by the Global Burden of Disease Study, which involved researchers from the United States and Australia.
Twenty mental and substance abuse disorders were analyzed to determine the frequency of nonfatal illness caused by these disorders. It was found that mental and substance abuse related health issues were responsible for nearly 23 percent of all nonfatal diseases around the world.
Harbor Village, located in sunny South Florida, is equipped to help clients dependent on addictive drugs receive private drug treatment in an upscale, 24/7 medically supervised, state-of-the art environment. Alcohol abuse clients: the staff will monitor your entire day, including waking up, meals, activities, rest time, and sleep. The alcohol abuse program usually provides more favorable results because it requires the client to leave their responsibilities behind and obtain the care they need in a controlled environment.
Every client staying at Harbor Village is greeted by luxury accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of scenic outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining, private limo pickup and transportation to anywhere in Florida and a personalized program designed for each client's specific problem.
As reported in Mental and Substance Disorders Major Cause of Nonfatal Illnesses, the study's authors found that marijuana is the most commonly used illegal drug. However, only 13 million people worldwide are addicted to using marijuana. Meanwhile, 17.2 million were addicted to amphetamines and 15.5 million were addicted to opioids.
The study's co-leader, Louisa Degenhardt, of the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, pointed out in the news release that the study "results clearly show that illicit drug use is an important contributor to the global disease burden, and we now have the first global picture of this cause of health loss."
“Treatment is the best course of action for anyone suffering from drug abuse. Those suffering from any drug-related issue should seek immediate help at a qualified detox center, said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
