Marne, Michigan (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
Serenity Point Recovery, a holistic treatment center for substance abuse located in Marne, MI, has released an educational video and a PDF Infographic, with a corresponding blog entry on the treatment center’s website, highlighting some of the statistics about heroin addiction. The purpose of these materials is to further educate the general public on the dangers of heroin, who is at risk of heroin addiction, and what can be done to fight the problems of substance abuse in modern society.
“The biggest tool that we have in the battle against substance abuse is education,” commented Serenity Point Recovery founder Per Wickstrom. “While the primary role that we fill in this fight is the effective treatment of those struggling with addiction, we understand that there is much more to the bigger picture. If we truly desire to beat addiction in today’s world, we must focus on educating people, particularly our teens and young adults, on the facts about the deadly lifestyle of drug abuse. It is our hope that these educational tools will help to show how destructive addiction to heroin can be, and to possibly save some lives.”
The motion graphic video shows many different statistics on heroin use in America today, with data coming from many reliable sources, such as the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), among several others.
