Addictions can range from alcohol, tobacco and prescription drugs to club drugs and street drugs. Prescription drugs have become a popular alternative to the more difficult to obtain street drugs. The reason? Many people believe that prescription medications are safer to use because they are FDA approved and usually prescribed by a doctor.

In the United States, death by prescription drug overdose has surpassed deaths resulting from car accidents – that’s one person every 19 minutes, 50 people a day, or 27,000 a year. Most of those deaths involve mixing a painkiller with at least one other drug, such as the Xanax or Alprazolam, cocaine, heroin or alcohol.

You can never take sobriety for granted. We or the rehab centers may never have all the answers regarding the treatment of addiction. It is clearly a life long struggle for those involved. Do you know someone that is at risk? You may save a life!
