Laredo, TX (PRWEB) December 04, 2013
A Laredo treatment center is announcing that new adult and adolescent programs aimed at tackling substance abuse issues are now available for people living in Laredo, Zapata, Nuevo Laredo and surrounding cities through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.
These programs expand upon the center’s already established substance abuse structure, offering additional hours of individual counseling and support.
According to a national report, slightly more than half (52.1 percent) of Americans aged 12 or older reported being current drinkers of alcohol in the 2012 survey, which was similar to the rate in 2011 (51.8 percent). This translates to an estimated 135.5 million current drinkers in 2012. Nearly one quarter (23.0 percent) of persons aged 12 or older in 2012 were binge alcohol users in the 30 days prior to the survey. This translates to about 59.7 million people. The rate in 2012 was similar to the rate in 2011 (22.6 percent). In 2012, heavy drinking was reported by 6.5 percent of the population aged 12 or older, or 17.0 million people. This percentage was similar to the rate of heavy drinking in 2011 (6.2 percent).
The program offers a collective style of treatment options for clients. Ultimately, its bottom line is to help all clients leave the addiction treatment center with a structure in place for life outside of it. People come into these types of centers looking either for a new life or relief from their pain, and counselors and therapists on staff are ready to help.
Entering the Laredo 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.
An initial step is detoxification from all mind-altering substances. This is followed by counseling and therapeutic help and support. Learning to navigate through everyday life without drugs and alcohol is akin to giving someone traveling through different states and/or nations a map and directions. Adults and adolescents will understand that this is a process, one that is not over in a matter of days. The substance abuse treatment center helps people rebuild their lives from the inside out.
