  • Drug Overdose Facts
  • In 2008, there were around 190,000 emergency rooms visits by persons under age 21 for injuries and other conditions concerning alcohol.
  • Amphetamines were the primary factor for 5% of the 1.6 million treatment admissions to publicly funded substance abuse treatment facilities in 1999, an increase from approximately 2 percent in 1993.
  • Detoxing with proper support and medical attention at a drug rehab can help ease withdrawal symptoms, an important factor in the initiation of treatment and to help prevent relapse.
  • When cocaine is smoked or used intravenously, it greatly increases the risk of a potentially fatal overdose due to respiratory or coronary complications.
  • In the workplace, Americans with less than a high school education are much more likely than other education attainment groups to report heavy alcohol use (14.7%, compared with 7.1% for high school graduates, 7.3 for some college education, and 5.8% for college graduates).

Outpatient Treatment

Drug or alcohol treatment services which are provided on an outpatient basis are available to addicted individuals who have circumstances which prevent them from being able to take part in an inpatient treatment program. An outpatient drug and alcohol treatment center offers many of the same services as an inpatient program, but allows for flexibility as opposed to an inpatient drug treatment center where the person is required to remain at the rehabilitation center until treatment has been fully completed. Outpatient drug or alcohol rehab is also available for those who have completed residential or inpatient treatment but require a thorough aftercare program which will provide additional support and therapy to help them avoid relapse.

Specialized in Hearing Impaired Clients

People can become addicted to drugs or alcohol no matter their handicap, disability or personal physical challenge. This sometimes makes individuals particularly more vulnerable to becoming involved in substance abuse, because of the various challenges that this can bring about in the person's life. This is true for those people in the deaf and hearing impaired community as well, and treatment for substance abuse and addiction is sometimes needed. Deaf or hearing impaired persons will require ASL or other assistance as part of their treatment needs, and there are drug and alcohol treatment centers available which provide these services. Professional treatment counselors who know ASL and can provide other necessary assistance to deaf or hearing impaired substance abusers.
