While some kids learn a little about the dangers of alcohol or drug use in health class, the coverage is typically woefully inadequate.

In its latest blog post, 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 looking at 11 drug addiction facts that children aren’t taught in school – but definitely should be.
“While some kids learn a little about the dangers of alcohol or drug use in health class, the coverage is typically woefully inadequate,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s Per Wickstrom.
According to Best Drug Rehabilitation, the 11 addiction facts they don’t teach in school are:
1. All addicts aren’t homeless and unemployed.
2. Addiction may be caused by childhood trauma.
3. Heroin is not just injected.
4. Addiction affects more than just the addict.
5. Resisting peer pressure is only one preventative step.
6. An addict might have more than one addiction.
7. Cocaine isn’t an aphrodisiac.
8. In the late 1960s, addicts were treated as criminals.
9. Successful recovery takes more than a desire to quit.
10. Getting sober/clean requires more than abstinence.
11. Addicts can never consider themselves “cured”.
Added Per Wickstrom: “As a society, we literally cannot afford to provide essential drug and alcohol abuse information after a problem arises. We have to be proactive and equip kids with the information and resources they need to make smart choices. It’s my hope that this latest blog post helps push us in that direction.”
