The County has joined in a national program sponsored by the Obama Administration to rid the nation of excess and unused prescription drugs. These drugs are a source of illegal drug use when they fall into the hands of unintended users. The collection drives have gathered thousands of pounds of unused drugs and reduced the chance that they will contribute to drug abuse and addiction.
The stories of addictions often involve innocent victims. Powerful prescription drugs have unintended side effects, and drug dependence is among the leading causes of addiction to prescription medications. The stories are all too familiar. A woman diagnosed with an anxiety disorder gets a powerful medicine to control her condition. After a period of usage, she becomes addicted to the drug and begins to find ways to get the pills without medical reasons. The situation can gradually take over a life.

Your Treatment Program Should Be Personal and Private
While you are making your decision on a rehabilitation facility consider those facilities that may be top-notch in other cities as well as those in your area. Many patients choose to travel to treatment centers that are outside of their home areas because it takes them away from the place where they became addicted. Every addict is different, but sometimes getting out of town and into a new location can give you a new perspective and a fresh start during recovery. In addition, peer pressure and negative influences will not be a problem if you are away from your home area.
With that being said, if you are opting for an outpatient treatment program, you may be better served by choosing a facility that is close to home. This option is often chosen by those who have families they need to take care of, jobs and careers they need to retain, or classes they need to attend. We know that each individual case is different, and we are willing to work with you to find the best treatment center for your recovery.
