Iowa Caucuses Bring Drugs to Center Stage
The Iowa Caucuses have a focus on illegal drug and prescription pill addiction. Speaking in Ames, and addressing all of Iowa in advance of the Iowa Caucuses, Hillary Clinton proposed $10 billion in additional resources to fight drug and alcohol abuse. She cited statistics showing that only about one in ten persons who needed treatment was getting treatment. Clinton spoke about the abuse of prescription painkillers as a portal to opioid addictions.
Drug Deaths Rise in US
Drug deaths in the US now exceed traffic deaths. Due to rising overdose incidents involving heroin and methamphetamine, drug casualties have risen to epidemic levels across the US and in Iowa. In 2013 there were approximately 32,000 traffic deaths and about 43,000 deaths from drugs. As an early caucus state, Iowa has been a center piece for drug abuse politics from the contenders for the 2016 nominations. For example, Hillary Clinton used an address in Mason City to signal an effort to confront the issue and try to get rid of the stigma on the status of recovering addicts.

Your Rehab Experience Can Be Strictly Confidential
Along with the many struggles that those attending rehab must deal with, being wary of confidentiality is one that many addicts dwell on. It can be embarrassing to deal openly with an addiction, and it is your prerogative to be private about attending a treatment facility. As a solution, if you choose to travel to a treatment center for rehab, there is often less of a need to worry on this matter. For a period of time, you will be able to distance yourself from your place of employment or school and the often prying eyes of those you know.
