Lake Worth, FL (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Recently, Millennium Treatment Group, a drug addiction and alcohol detox treatment facility, has seen an increase in the abuse of prescription drugs. Millennium is currently working to reduce this rate and help those who suffer from prescription drug use.
According to a recent report from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the misuse and abuse of prescription medications in the U.S. remains high, but few people are aware of just how big the problem truly is. In 2012, the number-one cause of death in 17 U.S. states was prescription drug abuse. This figure is even higher than the number of fatalities cause by motor vehicle accidents. The NIDA also states that 52 million people in the U.S. over the age of 12 have used prescription drugs non-medically in their lifetime.
There’s no doubt that prescription drug abuse is a huge problem in this country. However, what’s even more shocking is where the problem is stemming from. The number-one place prescription drugs are obtained from is friends or relatives.
Unlike illegal substances, such as marijuana and cocaine, addicts have a much easier access to prescription drugs. Family members who have prescription drugs for a medical condition need to be aware of their supply and take steps to ensure it will not fall into the wrong hands.
If a loved one is abusing prescription drugs, there are actions that can be taken. Millennium Treatment Group works with a variety of patients with addictions to prescription drugs, illegal substances and alcohol. At their facility, patients will find a safe place where they can get on the path to recovery and learn to live a healthier life.
