A Gilbert treatment center is announcing a new program geared toward eliminating prescription drug abuse within an individual is now available through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

According to a report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, nonmedical use of psychotherapeutics includes nonmedical use of any prescription-type pain relievers, tranquilizers, stimulants, or sedatives. Over-the-counter substances are not included. In 2012, there were approximately 2.4 million persons aged 12 or older who used psychotherapeutics nonmedically for the first time within the past year, which averages to about 6,700 initiates per day. The number of new nonmedical users of psychotherapeutics in 2012 was similar to estimates for 2002, 2003, and 2005 through 2011 (ranging from 2.3 million to 2.6 million), but was lower than the 2004 estimate (2.8 million).

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.

Entering the Gilbert 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.

Once people leave the treatment center, outpatient care and support is strongly suggested by counselors. Transitioning back into the “real world” takes time, too, and outpatient treatment allows clients an opportunity to share their victories and struggles with like-minded people.
