GETTING SOMEONE TO REHAB
It is estimated that about 18 million people misuse prescription drugs in the U.S. each year. About 5,480 people abuse such medications for the first time every day . Not all of those who misuse prescription drugs “just once” will become addicted to them. But many of them will.
Americans make choices every day, choosing what to wear to work, what kind of lunch to get, and what kind of route to drive home when the day is done. Making choices is a natural, daily part of our lives, just as natural as the air that we breath is.
We understand the difficulty of this task and why families often struggle with getting a loved one to rehab. But it can be done and is done daily by families across the country.
