Interesting Facts and Statistics:
Inpatient drug rehab treatment provides a structured program that often involves both individual counseling and treatment groups. The goal of an inpatient drug rehab treatment program is to help the person to be sober and to prepare the individual for a life back in the community. Family members often attend special programs in conjunction with the treatment center in order to help them with the changes that the whole family will go through and to educate them about their loved one?s addiction problems.
Among adults aged 50 to 59, the rate of current illegal drug use increased between 2002 and 2005 . For those aged 50 to 54, the rate increased from 3.4 to 5.2 percent, but this increase was not statistically significant. Among those aged 55 to 59, the rate increased significantly from 1.9 to 3.4 percent. This may reflect the aging into these age groups of the baby boom cohort, which has a relatively higher rate of lifetime illegal drug use than older cohorts have.
Amphetamine products often contain substances that do not easily dissolve in water. When users inject amphetamines, these particles can pass into the body and block small blood vessels or weaken the blood vessel walls. Kidney damage, lung problems, strokes, or other tissue injury may result.
The rates of past month use of illegal drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol (including binge alcohol) were lower among teens aged 12 to 17 who agreed with these statements about religious beliefs than among those who disagreed. For example, in 2008, past month illegal drug use was reported by 6.8 percent of those who agreed that religious beliefs are a very important part of life compared with 16.2 percent of those who disagreed with that statement.
Approximately one in eight teens aged 12 to 17 (11.7 percent) reported in 2005 that they had participated in drug, tobacco, or alcohol prevention programs outside of school in the past year. The prevalence of past month alcohol use was lower among teens who reported participating in these programs, 14.0 percent, than among teens who did not, 16.9 percent. However, for past month use of marijuana, there was no statistically significant difference between those who participated (5.8 percent used marijuana) and those who did not (6.9 percent used marijuana). Similarly, there was no difference between the two groups in current cigarette use (10.4 percent among participants and 10.8 percent among nonparticipants).
The chemical structure and mechanism of Ketamine are very similar to those of PCP, and its effects are similar, but this dissociative drug is much less potent than PCP and the effects of this drug are of a much shorter duration.
