Seattle, WA (PRWEB) February 01, 2014
A Seattle treatment center is announcing that it is opening doors for adults and adolescents dealing with alcohol and drug addiction through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.
Statistics from a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services report reveal that "in 2012, there were 156,000 persons aged 12 or older who had used heroin for the first time within the past 12 months. This estimated number in 2012 was similar to the numbers in 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2007 to 2011 (ranging from 106,000 to 187,000), but was higher than the numbers in 2003 and 2006 (92,000 and 90,000, respectively). The 2012 average age at first use among recent heroin initiates aged 12 to 49 was 23.0 years, which was similar to the 2011 estimate (22.1 years)."
Among the drugs that the Seattle Treatment Center can help adults and adolescents become free of include Darvon, Demerol, Darvocet, Dilaudid, Fentanyl, and Klonopin. Alcohol addiction also is addressed, too, as many people will use alcohol as a co-addictive drug. The goal is to help all clients leave with a structure in place for life. People come into these types of centers looking for a new life, and counselors on staff are ready to help.
Entering the Seattle Treatment Center gives clients a new chance to become responsible members of society. They come to find themselves and discover new levels of self-esteem.
Detoxification helps cleanse the body of mind-altering substances. This is overseen by a well-trained medical staff, making sure clients are supported through these initial days free from their drug of choice.
Counseling helps get through life without drugs and alcohol. Adults and adolescents will understand that this is a process, one that is not over in a matter of days. Once people leave the Seattle 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.
