SAN FRANCISCO, CA (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Medical Drug Detox Center is announcing that immediate, free drug and alcohol detoxification consultations are now available in San Francisco, Calif.
People living in San Francisco may think that using a lot of drugs like barbiturates, Darvon, heroin and prescription drugs is a good way to live. Yet there might be an alternative through drug detox.
Detoxing from drugs and alcohol alone is tough. Support is available for those seeking a simpler way of life.
In San Francisco, places like The Sage Project and Walden House are available should individuals be looking for a solid drug detox.
The only consolidated city-county in California, San Francisco encompasses a land area of about 46.9 square miles on the northern end of the San Francisco Peninsula, giving it a density of about 17,620 people per square mile. It is the most densely settled large city (population greater than 200,000) in the state of California and the second-most densely populated major city in the United States after New York City. San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California after Los Angeles, San Diego and San Jose, and the 14th most populous city in the United States — with a Census-estimated 2012 population of 825,863. The city is also the financial and cultural hub of the larger San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland metropolitan area, with a population of 8.4 million.
San Francisco (Spanish for "Saint Francis") was founded on June 29, 1776, when colonists from Spain established a fort at the Golden Gate and a mission named for St. Francis of Assisi a few miles away. The California Gold Rush of 1849 brought rapid growth, making it the largest city on the West Coast at the time. Due to the growth of its population, San Francisco became a consolidated city-county in 1856. After three-quarters of the city was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire, San Francisco was quickly rebuilt, hosting the Panama-Pacific International Exposition nine years later. During World War II, San Francisco was the port of embarkation for service members shipping out to the Pacific Theater.
Marijuana, opiates, oxycontin and benzodiazepine addiction can turn San Franciscans that are functioning and living life to the fullest into ones found in the streets and gutters. Also, if a person needs help from recovering from alcoholism, then it is available too.
Drug addicts, especially ones using Suboxone, and alcoholics deep into their addiction will go to any lengths for their substance.
Prescription drugs, when taken under medical supervision, help the detox process. Some include Librium, Valium, and Naltrexone. Getting help to detox from drugs and alcohol is available.
