Teens And Adolescent Drug Abuse, Statistics And Rehabilitation

Teens like statistics alot. Well, not the subject (especially me) but the numbers just would do the trick if you want to be convinced of somethingo, dont they?

Do you know that there were an estimated 908,000 new inhalant users in 2004, up from 332,000 in 1999. The rate of first use among youths age 12-17 rose significantly from 1999 to 2005, from 8.4 to 18.8 per 1,000 potential new users, and remained level after that. For young adults age 18-25, there was an increase in the rate of first use between 1999 and 20066 (from 4.7 to 11.7 per 1,000 potential new users) and a leveling off in 20077 (9.2 per 1,000 potential new users). With this numbers, its not very hard to imagine that one of our immediate friends if not, a number of our acquaintances are into drug addiction or drug abuse. Even I can name a few of my friends who used to be addicted to some prescription drug medicines but already went to drug rehab.

With this sad but true numbers, we can safely say that teens of this generation is most prone to drug addiction. Now there are alot of ways to alleviate these problems, and one very commonly used drug treatment is drug rehab. I found a free and non-profit site over the internet for individuals who wants to come back and function usefully in society by way of drug rehabilitation. When you visit the site, you will be taken to a bottom page wherein you have to fill in a form if you want yourself or a loved one be rehabilitated for good. After filling the form up, an expert counselor will guide you through the process. The best part about it is that its all for free. I dont know who funds it but its sure does feels good that there concerned individuals there that still thinks the youth today is tomorrow's hope.
