Surprising Facts About Addiction

Some individuals struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction hesitate to reach out to alcohol treatment centers because they are ashamed of their addiction or fearful of what the future may hold. If you have an addiction, you should know that you’re certainly not alone. When you watch this video, you’ll see some alarming statistics compiled by Tranquility Woods, a premier in-patient drug rehab near Maryland providing comprehensive treatment with a personal approach.

For example, did you know that 10 percent of adults in the U.S. required drug treatment for substance abuse in the past year? Yet, only one in 10 people went to a specialty inpatient drug rehab. These statistics paint a grim picture of the use of alcohol and illicit drugs among various age groups, and you may be surprised to learn that if you’re an older adult with an addiction, there are plenty of others in the same position. Among individuals aged 50 or older, 4.8 million used an illicit drug in the past year. Despite these alarming statistics, it’s important to realize that help is available and overcoming addiction is an option with cognitive behavioral therapy, acupuncture, spiritual therapy, and a number of other complementary treatment modalities.
