Chula Vista, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
A Chula Vista treatment center is launching a new program toward lowering the risks of substance abuse issues for adolescents through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.
The center is using data from a report issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to help craft this program. According to the report, in 2012, 65.7 percent of youths aged 12 to 17 perceived great risk in smoking one or more packs of cigarettes per day, 63.9 percent perceived great risk in having four or five drinks of an alcoholic beverage nearly every day, and 39.7 percent perceived great risk in having five or more drinks once or twice a week. For marijuana, 43.6 percent of youths perceived great risk in smoking marijuana once or twice a week, and 26.5 percent perceived great risk in smoking marijuana once a month. The percentages of youth who perceived great risk in using other drugs once or twice a week were 80.0 percent for heroin, 78.9 percent for cocaine, and 70.6 percent for LSD.
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.
The program offers a collective style of treatment options for clients. Ultimately, its bottom line is to help all clients leave the addiction treatment center with a structure in place for life outside of it. People come into these types of centers looking either for a new life or relief from their pain, and counselors and therapists on staff are ready to help.
Entering the Chula Vista rehab center gives clients a new chance to be responsible members of society once again. They come to find themselves, discover new levels of self-esteem, and a spirituality that works.
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.
