Effective drug rehab

We’ve always known that alcoholism isn’t an individual problem; it’s a family problem.

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 04, 2012

The far reaching effects of alcoholism in families may not be apparent to everyone, but to those involved the costs are high.

Few studies have been conducted in regards to the overall impact of alcoholism, aside from isolated, specific factors that is, until recently. This recent study focused on a variety of different aspects, such as economic impact as well as time spent by family members caring for an alcoholic.

The study revealed that expenses directly related to alcoholism dropped over 15% after successful alcohol rehab. Additionally, family members reported a 75% drop in time spent caring for an alcoholic relative, after successful alcoholism treatment.

“We’ve always known that alcoholism isn’t an individual problem; it’s a family problem,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center. “This study reinforces that fact and, more importantly, it’s not just the financial burden that is reduced with effective alcohol rehab, it’s the emotional burden.
