The bottom-line message that individuals need to hear – and particularly young people, who may be misled by self-interested associates who want nothing more than to turn them into dependent addicts – is that alcohol and prescription drugs don’t mix.

Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is warning about the dangers of drinking and using prescription drugs in its latest blog post.
“The bottom-line message that individuals need to hear – and particularly young people, who may be misled by self-interested associates who want nothing more than to turn them into dependent addicts – is that alcohol and prescription drugs don’t mix; in fact, they can be a lethal combination,” commented Per Wickstrom, Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO. “Furthermore, reports from the National Institute on Drug Abuse and other credible organizations confirm that there is a clear correlation between alcohol abuse and prescription drug abuse; in fact, people who abuse the former are nearly twenty times more likely to abuse the latter.”
In addition to warning about the dangers of mixing alcohol with prescription opioids (such as Vicodin) and amphetamines, Best Drug Rehabilitation’s blog post also highlights that the damage that individuals inflict on their liver, heart and other organs and body systems can be years in the making, and be difficult or even impossible to cure down the road.
“Some younger people in particular can feel invulnerable, and as someone who has personally battled with addiction in my youth, I can certainly relate,” added Per Wickstrom. “However, I want them to know that they can be heading down a slippery slope that can be extremely difficult to climb back from. They owe it to themselves, as well as those who love and care for them, to avoid heading down that path.”
