Aurora, CO (PRWEB) December 04, 2013
An Aurora treatment center is announcing that an updated, new consultation program is available for people living in Aurora and surrounding cities through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.
This new program comes out of statistical data reported by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In 2012, an estimated 56.5 percent of males aged 12 or older were current drinkers, which was higher than the rate for females (47.9 percent). However, among youths aged 12 to 17, the percentage of males who were current drinkers (12.6 percent) was similar to the rate for females (13.2 percent). Also in the report, among young adults aged 18 to 25, an estimated 62.9 percent of males and 57.5 percent of females were current drinkers in 2012. In this age group, 45.8 percent of males and 33.2 percent of females reported binge drinking in 2012 (Figure 3.2). The rate of binge drinking among males aged 18 to 25 was lower in 2012 than in the years from 2002 to 2010. Among females in this age group, however, the rate in 2012 was similar to the rates in the years from 2002 to 2011.
Cocaine, heroin, Oxycontin and benzodiazepines are just a few of the drugs that the treatment center helps people put in their past. Alcoholism, a disease that destroys individuals as well as families, is addressed through the substance abuse treatment center’s programs.
An initial step is detoxification from all mind-altering substances. This is overseen by a well-trained medical staff, making sure clients are supported, guided and nurtured through these initial hours and days free from their drug of choice. This is followed by counseling and therapeutic help and support.
Once people leave the treatment center, outpatient care and support is strongly suggested by counselors. Transitioning back into the “real world” takes time, too, and outpatient treatment allows clients an opportunity to share their victories and struggles with like-minded people. When it’s all put together, from detoxification to outpatient care, the substance abuse treatment center gives people a second chance.
