The ultimate goal of all Alcohol Rehab or Drug Rehabilitation Centers should be to enable the individual from Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania to achieve lasting abstinence. Much research has indicated that in order for drug and alcohol addiction treatment to be effective, it must teach the individual how to change to their compulsive behaviors in order to remove the addiction and to be able to avoid a possible relapse.

Drug detox is the first step in the Mount Pleasant, PA. rehabilitation treatment process toward recovery from a drug and alcohol addiction.

It is very common to see individuals from Mount Pleasant, PA. in drug detox that has combined different drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, or pain pills with alcohol.

Before an addict is finally willing to surrender to the Alcohol Rehabilitation or Drug Treatment Facility process, they may have already made repeated promises to their loved ones in Mount Pleasant who have been experiencing the negative effects from the individual's drug or alcohol abuse; because of the way that these substances chemically alter the person's brain, these empty promises cannot be fulfilled.

Did You Know? ...
Interesting Facts and Statistics:

Nearly one percent of Americans, or 2.1 million people, are currently using cocaine.

THC, the main active ingredient in marijuana, acts upon specific sites in the brain called cannabinoid receptors, triggering a series of cellular reactions that ultimately lead to the ?high? users experience when they smoke marijuana.

The Drug Abuse Warning Network* lists opiates (heroin/morphine) among the four most frequently mentioned drugs reported in drug-related death cases in 2002.

Infants born to women who use opiates often have withdrawal symptoms which may last several weeks or months. Many of these babies die.

In 2006, the prevalence of current use of a tobacco product among persons aged 12 or older was 16.0 percent for Asians, 24.4 percent for Hispanics, 29.1 percent for blacks, 31.4 percent for whites, 34.2 percent for persons who reported two or more races, and 42.3 percent for American Indians or Alaska Natives. There were no statistically significant changes in past month tobacco use between 2005 and 2006 for any of these racial/ethnic groups.

Psychotherapeutics include the nonmedical use of any prescription-type pain relievers, tranquilizers, stimulants, or sedatives. Over-the-counter substances are not included. In 2008, there were 2.5 million persons aged 12 or older who used psychotherapeutics nonmedically for the first time within the past year, which averages out to around 7,000 initiates per day. This annual estimate of the initiates of psychotherapeutics was significantly lower than the 2004 estimate (2.8 million). In 2008, the numbers of new users of specific classes of psychotherapeutics were 2.2 million for pain relievers, 1.1 million for tranquilizers, 599,000 for stimulants, and 181,000 for sedatives. There was a significant decrease in the number of past year initiates of stimulants from 2006 (845,000) to 2008 (599,000), but there were no significant changes in the estimates for the remaining psychotherapeutics between these years.
