  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • A drug overdose can often result from using multiple drugs with counter indications simultaneously, as in the case of using heroin while drinking alcohol.
  • The most common substances that are reported in drug overdose deaths are heroin, cocaine, prescription drugs and alcohol.
  • Heroin is the preferred drug among opiate addicts mostly because it is several times more potent than morphine and reaches the brain very quickly, producing an euphoric rush when injected intravenously.
  • Prescription opiate abuse, particularly in relation to drugs such as OxyContin, is responsible for a large percentage of the increase in the rates of drug overdoses throughout the United States today.
  • A man in Pennsylvania who was high on Bath Salts entered a monastery and stabbed a priest.

Specialized in Hiv/Aids Patients

It is not unusual for persons with HIV/AIDS to end up in a drug treatment program receiving help for severe addiction problems. Sometimes individuals who abuse drugs and alcohol are predisposed to such diseases because of certain circumstances which afflict the drug culture such as sharing dirty syringes to inject drugs or participating in risky sexual behavior because of lowered sexual inhibitions caused by drug use. Persons with HIV/AIDS should have effective rehabilitation just like any otherwise healthy addicted person. Drug and alcohol rehab centers that accept and cater to persons with HIV/AIDS provide specialized care to address any health issues that may come up in the course of treatment. This way, any physical barriers to recovery are alleviated so that they can overcome their addiction and maintain a drug-free lifestyle.
