Canadian, OK (PRWEB) November 27, 2007
Narconon Arrowhead has announced that they are making headway in Texas with the establishment of their new field office. According to national surveys, there are over 22 millions Americans addicted to drugs or alcohol. Law enforcement agencies have made it no secret that many of these addicted substances make their way into the United States from other countries. Whether these drugs are smuggled on ships and through port cities, in bags over razor wire fences, in vehicles driven through underground tunnels crossing the border, or even via submarines, drug dealers are operating off the law of supply and demand and are finding creative ways to get their goods to the consumer.
One of the states having the most difficult time with drug activity is Texas. "The immense drug trafficking activity that passes through Texas from Mexico, Columbia and the Dominican Republic exposes all Texans to the dangerous criminality of its operators," stated Gary Smith, CEO of Narconon Arrowhead, one of the country's leading drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. "As well, high drug traffic means high drug availability of methamphetamine, heroin, cocaine, marijuana or club drugs to its residents. The proximity of Mexican pharmacies that sell often-abused prescription drugs over the counter increases the threat. Texans have an urgent need for drug treatment that ends the use of and desire for these dangerous substances."
With the high yielding profits of illegal drugs and thousands of miles of borders that have proved almost impossible to control, some organizations are taking matters into their own hands. On October 4, 2007, Narconon Arrowhead announced the opening of its first field office, Narconon Arrowhead Texas Field Office, to help Texas citizens become further educated on addiction and drug activity to help curtail these ongoing issues in Texas.
Elizabeth Yarie, spokesperson for the Narconon Arrowhead Texas Field Office, stated, "In our first month, we have seen Texas residents who are very appreciative of our services. Many Texans have already recognized the absolute need for drug prevention, education, and rehabilitation. We have received an overwhelming response and we have already assisted 62 people find treatment in their time of need in addition to the other public outreach that we have been doing."
Yarie went on to comment, "Texans are not the type of folks to just sit back when their loved ones and neighbors are in trouble. We know that people die from drug and alcohol addiction everyday. It is refreshing to see that people are taking the initiative to help those who are in need get help right away."
