Dallas, TX (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
A Dallas drug rehab center is launching a new program that focuses on helping adolescents and adults eliminate cocaine addiction and abuse in their lives through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.
These services are available not only in Dallas but surrounding areas and cities, including Richmond Hills, Highland Park, Irving, Arlington, Farmers Branch, and Duncanville.
According to statistical data released from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in 2012, most (76.2 percent) of the 0.6 million recent cocaine initiates were 18 or older when they first used. The average age at first use among recent initiates aged 12 to 49 was 20.0 years. The average age estimates have remained fairly stable since 2002.
The city is the largest economic center of the 12-county region. Dallas–Fort Worth–Arlington metropolitan area had a population of 6,645,678 in 2012. The metroplex economy is the sixth largest in the United States, with a 2010 gross metropolitan product of $374 billion. Its 2010 Real GDP amounted to $325 billion.
Detoxification is used to reduce or relieve withdrawal symptoms while helping the addicted individual adjust to living without drug use; drug detoxification is not meant to treat addiction but rather an early step in long-term treatment.
Drug detoxification varies depending on the location of treatment, but most detox centers provide treatment to avoid the symptoms of physical withdrawal to alcohol & other drugs. Most also incorporate counseling and therapy during detox to help with the consequences of withdrawal.
Drug rehabilitation allows adults and adolescents a chance to get clean from their drug of choice, whether it is cocaine, heroin, marijuana, or prescription drugs. A part of this process is detoxification, cleansing out the physical body filled with mind-altering substances. Drug detox’s main goal is to rid the body of chemical toxins.
Once this process takes place, then counseling and therapeutic methods are used for support.
