PRLog - Sep. 22, 2011 - Spring Hill, FL - Narconon Suncoast Rehab Center client census confirms what the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) and other state agencies are finding – drugs, specifically prescription drugs, has shot up the list of causes of death and now, for the first time since 1979, surpasses traffic accidents. Daily they fight to prevent drug caused deaths, especially those caused by prescription drugs, through their drug-free drug and alcohol rehab program.

Prescription drug abuse is an epidemic which doesn’t discriminate by sex, age, education level, profession, background, etc.  Anyone can fall prey to the dangers of prescription drug use and overdose.

The majority of the clients at the Narconon Suncoast drug rehab center (http://www.suncoastrehabcenter.com) , approximately 90%, are there for prescription drug abuse.  “In my long career of rehabilitating addicts, I have never seen an epidemic like today’s prescription drug abuse. What we need is not more drugs but successful education and rehabilitation that get to the bottom of why the person sought out drugs to begin with,” says Suncoast Case Manager, Richard Taylor.  “Prescribing another pill will not help anyone and will only make the problem worse.”

There was a time when America declared a War on Drugs to prevent illicit drugs from penetrating its boarders and negatively affecting the culture.  Today, the biggest threat is right inside American homes, towns, counties and states in the form of pharmaceutical companies, pain clinics, home medicine cabinets, etc.  

As little as a decade ago, police were raiding crack houses but today, Florida pain clinics outnumber McDonald’s restaurants and Florida doctors prescribe 10 times more oxycodone pills than every other state in the country combined.

By the end of 2009, the number of deaths involving prescription drugs had risen to 4 times the number involving illicit drugs and the annual number of drug related deaths had gone up 61%.  Prescription drug overdose deaths were implicated in 76.1% of all drug related deaths, illicit drugs accounting for 33.9%.

The Suncoast Drug Rehab program is winning the battle, person by person, with their program that has an outstanding success rate of 76% of graduates achieving permanent recovery from addiction. Their graduates are followed up with 2 years after treatment and are still drug-free. The answer to this high rate of success lies with their experienced staff who administer this non-traditional treatment model that not only detoxifies the addicts body from drug toxins and thereby eliminates cravings, they also train their students on specific life skills & cognitive therapy that address the reasons they sought drugs out to begin with. The results are individuals who recover themselves, escape death and are able to live drug-free productive lives. For more information visit http://www.suncoastrehabcenter.com/.
