Treating Addiction: Drug Addict Rehab Part 2

Updated on June 30, 2010

The determination of the likelihood of the patients with addictive problems in utilizing recreational narcotic drugs or consuming excess quantities of alcohol, intentionally looking for assistance from an acknowledged Drug Addiction Rehab therapy service is problematic to accurately determine, regardless of the amount of research data accumulated to date. The major clinical and medical studies examining such seeking of assistance do not agree with each other. However, if we implement a broad enough description of the situation, it seems that in most major developed nations the majority of patients with addictive problems in utilizing recreational narcotic drugs or consuming excess quantities of alcohol do not generally seek assistance from either specialized services or generally publically available ones. Of those patients who do actively look for Drug Addiction Rehab assistance in coping with their own personal alcohol problems, 70% report seeking that assistance from Alcoholics Anonymous or any of the other similar groups. This predominance of Alcoholics Anonymous within this sphere may be due to addiction agencies not being well identified or acknowledged within the overall public community whereas more patients in any given location have basic knowledge of the activities of Alcoholics Anonymous.

A research study which accumulated its information from Massachusetts demonstrated that from a group of those individuals reporting various difficulties at the time of the research study, those individuals who had looked for Drug Addiction Rehab assistance had a tendency to indulge in greater alcohol consumption as well as being more senior, have lower education achievements, and have considerably more powerful religious affiliations. Interestingly there were few variations relative to gender, income, race, social status, and the various other population characteristics. Those individuals who sought assistance were not as likely to be separated or divorced outright and far less likely to be employed, as well as being disabled or retired. The study concluded that the determination to seek therapeutic Drug Addiction Rehab intervention was linked to spiraling personal and social negative situations rather than the characteristics pertaining to the amount of alcohol consumed or the demographic positioning of the patients. Within the overall population, seeking assistance; getting involved with Alcoholics Anonymous; and attending alcoholism therapy formats were more typical among men, and especially men between the ages of 19 and 50.

Some research has shown that those patients seeking Drug Addiction Rehab therapy from alcoholism therapy services vs. those in the general population have a very different demographic and sociographic profile. The patients involved in various programs offered by the therapy agencies are generally in the 35 to 60 age group, are mostly unemployed and not living in a stable familial domestic setting. Contrasting with that group, the individuals in the overall population undergoing alcohol abuse are generally in the 19 to 26 age group, and are gainfully employed and residing in family homes.

Drug Addiction Rehab is a critical community service which is made available to all residents, irrespective of their race, gender, age, income level, social status or criminal background. Drug Addiction Rehab centers provide an important therapeutic program which has assisted countless thousands of addicts back to a productive life as an integral part of their families, their workplaces, their communities and their nations.
