El Paso, TX (PRWEB) November 28, 2013
An El Paso alcohol rehab center has launched a new program geared to helping ethnic groups better understand how alcoholism affects their lives in a negative way through Alcohol Addiction Treatment Centers.
In a 2012 study from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, among persons aged 12 or older, whites and persons reporting two or more races in 2012 were more likely than other racial/ethnic groups to report current use of alcohol (57.4 and 51.9 percent, respectively). The rates were 43.2 percent for blacks, 41.8 percent for Hispanics, 41.7 percent for American Indians or Alaska Natives, and 36.9 percent for Asians
Alcoholism touches an individual’s life deeply, throwing him or her off course for a long time. What the new ethnic-based alcohol rehab program can do is take the stigma of alcohol addiction among ethnic groups, turn it around, and send people back out to live productive, healthy lives.
Physical detoxification process is usually a first step in the alcohol rehabilitation process. At this point, the client enters counseling and therapy. For ethnic groups, this is a great opportunity to show others that recovery from alcohol addiction is entirely possible and truly worth it.
