Drug and alcohol addiction and substance abuse, in general, is a grueling mess in the nation today. Many feel the effects of it whether they are themselves addicted or whether they know someone who is. Studies show that roughly twenty-three million Americans are addicted, equating to about one out of every three American families having an extended family member who is addicted, and one out of eight families who have an immediate family member who is hooked. No matter how you look at it, this is a true problem and, if nothing is done about it, it is here to stay. Rally for Recovery is a local event which raises awareness about drug and alcohol abuse.
A few drug addiction rehabilitation centers have taken to working on not only rehabilitating their clients but also on promoting drug and alcohol addiction awareness to prevent addiction from spreading effectively. To raise awareness and to get the message out, Best Drug Rehabilitation staff and clients recently attended the “Rally for Recovery,” a local event for raising awareness of the truth about drug and alcohol abuse.
There are two ways to fight addiction in any given area, and both must be worked at for there to be any success. The first is of course rehabilitation, and this is the job of actual rehabilitation centers to take people who are actively addicted to and abusing drugs and alcohol and put them through detox and rehab both to clean them up and recover them for life. The other method is that of prevention. Prevention is the category of removing addiction that involves anything that works to get people to stay away from drugs and alcohol before they even start. Prevention also includes actions taken but law enforcement to get drugs out of an area, bust trafficking rings, or stop drunk drivers.
Prevention is usually the job of federal, state, county, and city governments. Rehabilitation is the role of individual rehab centers. This year though, Best Drug Rehabilitation is making an effort at preventing substance abuse from even happening in the State of Michigan. Best Drug Rehabilitation wants to see a sober Michigan, and they have committed themselves to activities and events like the Rally for Recovery to get their message across to as many people as possible.
Prevention and Awareness Stops Addiction
Individuals who are addicted who make it go right to go to rehab and to get clean will find a happier, healthier, and more confident way of life, and a sense of confidence and optimism for a brighter future for themselves and their loved ones too. But wouldn’t it be better if they didn’t have to go to rehab in the first place? Sure beating addiction makes a person stronger, but wouldn’t it be better if no one had to experience addiction at all? That is the ultimate goal at Best Drug Rehabilitation. The Rally for Recovery is only one of many major events that Best Drug Rehabilitation engages in, and we are dedicated to the cause of not just helping people find the best program, but of stopping addiction from ever occurring in its community and all across Michigan for that matter.
Now it is hoped that more rehab centers rise and accept the gauntlet that Best Drug Rehabilitation has thrown down. A genuinely effective rehab center is a rehab center that not only recovers people but that also involves itself in the community. Now more than ever that service is desperately needed.
