• Some states have been suffering worse than others when it comes to substance abuse and addiction but there is no doubt in anyone's mind that all of the states of the United States of America to some degree or another are experiencing rapid increases in substance abuse and addiction in general. Multiple different factors have contributed to this but the main three are thought to be an increased acceptance amongst the American people of general, recreational substance abuse, increased trafficking of narcotics into the nation from South America, (where the real problem rests for Yucca Valley), and increased prescription drug abuse.
• For over a decade now interest in drugs and alcohol has been steadily growing and increasing amongst the American people. Now, the United States has one of the worst addiction problems per capita in the entire country. This problem and this increase have been extreme to say the least. If something is not done soon about it then the issue will only get much, much worse. This is why it is more important now than ever for those addicted to go to rehabilitation centers and programs.
• The two saving graces that occur in a rehab program start with detoxification. Detox refers to the first step of rehabilitation in which an individual’s chemical dependence to drugs and alcohol is effectively addressed. This is a major and key aspect to curing someone from drug and alcohol addiction, because one cannot really hope to effectively take on these issues without first freeing the person from the physical aspects of drug and alcohol addiction. Once freed from physical cravings and withdrawal symptoms, the person can then move on to the much more involved aspect of addiction recovery.
• The next step is rehabilitation. This is also accomplished at an inpatient center, and it involves taking the individual and literally freeing him or her from the mental, personal, psychological, and spiritual aspects of addiction. This part takes quite a bit longer than detox does, as mental addiction accounts for far more of the problem than physical dependence does.Once one has experienced both aspects of a recovery and treatment program, one will be free from drug and alcohol addiction. This is the key and the most important thing for Yucca Valley to do right now to address its drug and alcohol problem. If this is done and if this is done soon, then the crisis will truly be averted once and for all.
