The holiday time from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day is a critical time for those struggling with drug abuse and is particularly challenging as the pressure to use increases and culminates on New Year's Eve.
How critical is this? The National Center for Victims of Crime reports that the time between Christmas and New Year's, about 40 percent of all traffic fatalities occur in crashes where at least one of the drivers has a Blood Alcohol Count (BAC) level of .08 or more. During the remainder of December, the figure is only 28 percent.
"For those abusing alcohol or drugs, we fear that the very next time they use, it will be fatal. Statistically more overdoses and fatalities occur at this time of year due to the social acceptance and peer pressure to over-indulge and really "party harder". This is why we are appealing to parents of an addicted child, spouse or loved one to immediately admit them into an alcohol or drug rehabilitation program. Programs like the Narconon Program that have a proven success rate that is 4 times higher than the international average, are the ones that address the social dependence factors that have addicts binge, and also the emotional issues that trigger their excessive use during the holidays ," says Rodgers.
"Getting them admitted to a long-term drug rehabilitation program now will not only have them be safe over New Year's Eve, it gives them a chance to start saving their own life and ending their addictive behaviors for good. Getting someone to start rehab now is one of the most effective ways to help lower the statistics on DUI's, automobile fatalities and suicides during this most emotionally volatile season of the year," says Rodgers.
The Narconon drug rehabilitation program is unique in that it is an entirely drug-free treatment model. For nearly 50 years, the Narconon drug rehabilitation program has been getting people stably off drugs without the use of replacement medications. It uses specifically designed nutritional support to aid in withdraw and detoxification, combined with a sauna detox program and a proven, comprehensive life skills program to handle both physical and mental aspects of addiction. It is classified as a social education model of rehabilitation, where addicts become "students" of the Narconon life skills curriculum, overcome their addictions and learn to live productive drug- free lives.
