Albion, MI (PRWEB) December 29, 2013
Narconon Freedom Center is campaigning to raise awareness of the holiday dangers for those struggling with addiction. As the season’s dangers for addicts escalate to their peak on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, the center is urging enrollment in a drug rehab program immediately. Families are encouraged to help their loved ones arrive at a facility.
"Holiday stress starts increasing at Halloween and continues to accumulate through New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Suicides and overdoses increase. We believe getting those struggling with addiction into a rehab program can save their life while also giving families peace of mind," said John Walser, Narconon Freedom Center’s Senior Intake Counselor.
Types of the holiday stress that can trigger increased alcohol and drug consumption include financial stress, must-attend parties and raves, extended gloomy weather, heightened difficult emotions, depression, missing family who can’t be home or other family conflicts.
Dr. Greg Allen, LMFT, (redondobeach.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/holidays-increase-drug-and-alcohol-use_cbce9ef0) reports that car accidents, drug overdoses, suicides, violence and domestic disputes increase dramatically over the holidays. A lot of those incidents are directly related to alcohol and drug abuse. Almost 50% of the holiday suicides are directly attributable to drugs and alcohol abuse. 33% of holiday suicides test positive for alcohol and another 16% test positive for drugs.
