People in San Diego that are seeking immediate help for their drug addiction now have a new place to reach out. Call (888) 444-9148 for a free consultation with Medical Drug Detox Center.

A San Diego drug detox center is announcing that a new program aimed at deterring use and abuse of marijuana and prescription drugs is now available in San Diego through Medical Drug Detox Center.

A report from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services indicates that of the estimated 2.9 million persons aged 12 or older in 2012 who used illicit drugs for the first time within the past 12 months, a majority reported that their first drug was marijuana (65.6 percent) (Figure 5.1). More than 1 in 4 initiated with nonmedical use of psychotherapeutics (26.0 percent, including 17.0 percent with pain relievers, 4.1 percent with tranquilizers, 3.6 percent with stimulants, and 1.3 percent with sedatives). A notable proportion reported inhalants (6.3 percent) as their first illicit drug, and a small proportion used hallucinogens (2.0 percent). All of the above 2012 percentages of first illicit drug use were similar to the corresponding percentages in 2011.

People residing in San Diego might be trying very hard to overcome addictions to Darvon, heroin and prescription drugs. They could see drug detox as a safer way to live once they get through the early stages of detoxification.

San Diego was originally centered in the Old Town district, but by the late 1860s the center of focus had relocated to the bayfront in the belief that this new location would increase trade. As the "New Town" – present-day Downtown – waterfront location quickly developed, it eclipsed Old Town as the center of San Diego. The development of skyscrapers more than 300 feet in San Diego is attributed to the construction of the El Cortez Apartment Hotel in 1927, the tallest building in the city from 1927 to 1963. As time went on, multiple buildings claimed the title of San Diego's tallest skyscraper, including the Union Bank of California Building and Symphony Towers. Currently, the tallest building in San Diego is One America Plaza, standing 500 feet tall, which was completed in 1991.

With its breathtaking Pacific Ocean viewpoints all around San Diego, it appears to be a wonderful setting for individuals seeking drug and alcohol detox support. Treatment facilities like Casa Palmera, Stepping Stone, and the AToN Center are among many in San Diego that offer a different way to live ... one without drugs and alcohol.

Marijuana, opiates, oxycontin and benzodiazepine addiction can turn well-functioning individuals into non-functioning ones over a period of time. Seeking help when recovering from alcoholism is not a sign of weakness.

Drug addicts and alcoholics deep into their addiction will go to any lengths for their substance. They medicate themselves so that life's issues become secondary and unimportant.
