Riverside, CA (PRWEB) November 21, 2013
A Riverside drug rehab center is announcing an expansion of its adult drug program to help stop the advancement of drug abuse. This program is available through Drug Addiction Treatment Centers.
According to a report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, among adults aged 50 to 64, the rate of current illicit drug use has increased during the past decade. For adults aged 50 to 54, the rate increased from 3.4 percent in 2002 to 7.2 percent in 2012. Among those aged 55 to 59, the rate of current illicit drug use increased from 1.9 percent in 2002 to 6.6 percent in 2012. Among those aged 60 to 64, the rate increased from 1.1 percent in 2003 to 3.6 percent in 2012.
These patterns and trends partially reflect the aging into these age groups of members of the baby boom cohort, whose rates of illicit drug use have been higher than those of older cohorts. The baby boom cohort refers to persons born in the United States after World War II between 1946 and 1964.
In the center's expanded program, adults develop an understanding of learning new life skills without serious dependency upon drugs.
Detoxification from drugs is the first step in the rehab center's process. Withdrawal symptoms can seemingly cripple a person physically and emotionally. If a person chooses to detox without supervision, then that person loses control of his or her mental and physical faculties. Some withdrawal symptoms may include nausea, muscle aches, cold sweats, increasing heart rate, increased blood pressure, irritability, and anxiety. This process’ duration differs between individuals, but it’s important to stay safe and comfortable through the whole detox process. Age, gender, type of substance that was used, how long a person has used it and a medical history are taken into consideration when planning out the detox process.
Once an adult has gone through drug detox, their physical bodies are ready for the next phase. Cravings for their substance of choice will remain, yet there is hope.
Men and women might find themselves caught in a web of addiction. For instance, drugs like cocaine, ecstasy and marijuana could be a problem. Drug Addiction Treatment Centers can lead a person into a promised land of healing, hope and recovery.
