A Portland alcohol and drug rehab center is announcing that an updated program to help adults and adolescents end their drug addiction is now available through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.

Data from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows that "the number of new non-medical users of pain relievers in 2012 (1.9 million) was similar to the estimates in 2007, 2010, and 2011, but was lower than the numbers in 2002 through 2006 and in 2008 and 2009 (ranging from 2.2 million to 2.5 million). In 2012, the numbers of initiates were 1.4 million for tranquilizers, 676,000 for stimulants, and 166,000 for sedatives."

Drug addiction remains a serious problem in the Portland area, and this is why Alcohol & Drug Rehab Portland is placing even more emphasis on it through this updated program. This program expands group therapy, individual therapy, group activities, and its exercise regimen. These updated services include additional time with clients, along with more support and encouragement for going through rehabilitation.

Alcohol and drug rehab makes sure people get the help they need in order to change their lives. Addiction can affect anyone, and it does not matter what age, race, or economic background they come from at all.

Detoxification helps rid the physical body of drugs' chemical substances. This process usually takes a few days and is supervised by Alcohol & Drug Rehab Portland's medical staff.

After detox, adults and adolescents enter into the counseling and therapeutic phase of recovery. The alcohol and drug rehab reviews a person’s individual history, looking back at family life, environment and peers. Once a baseline is established based upon where someone may have started their substance abuse through the present day, then steps are taken to help the client understand where he or she got too involved in alcohol and drugs.
