An El Paso drug detox center is announcing a new treatment program aimed at people abusing marijuana and painkillers through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

A 2012 study done by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services indicates that the illicit drug categories with the largest number of past year first-time users were marijuana use (2.4 million) and nonmedical use of pain relievers (1.9 million). These estimates were similar to the numbers in 2011. However, the number of marijuana first-time users increased between 2007 (2.1 million) and 2012 (2.4 million).

These numbers indicate a continued problem with illicit drug use among adults and adolescents, which is something that will be addressed through the new treatment program. The program will involve in-depth counseling, detoxification, and allowing an individual to see what makes him or her lean toward using drugs.

Physical detoxification usually is the initial step in the new treatment program. Withdrawal symptoms can seemingly cripple a person physically and emotionally. If a person chooses to detox without supervision, then that person loses control of his or her mental and physical faculties.

Some withdrawal symptoms may include nausea, muscle aches, cold sweats, increasing heart rate, increased blood pressure, irritability, and anxiety. These symptoms can even become life-threatening ones – suicidal ideation, delirium tremens (DTs), stroke, heart attack or even death – to an individual. That’s why 24-hour supervision under a detox center’s guiding watch makes more sense.

Men, women and adolescents might find themselves caught in a web of addiction. For instance, drugs like cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana could be a problem. Drug Addiction Treatment Centers can lead a person into a promised land of healing, hope and recovery.
