Drugs and Alcohol Taking more American Lives

New studies have shown that the problem of addiction to drugs and alcohol in the United States is growing worse -- much worse. 1 in 4 deaths in the United States are linked to drugs and/or alcohol. A staggering figure, this only means that 25% of people in the United States die from drugs and alcohol, this does not even illustrate exactly how many people in the US have a chemical dependency.

Now more than ever it is important to watch for the warning signs of addiction, and to get your loved ones help in treating their addictions as soon as possible.

Above It All Treatment is a rehab center in California that knows all to well the dangers of addiction. But there is hope for those afflicted with addiction. 12 step addiction recovery programs have shown great successes in treating those that are addicted to alcohol, cocaine, heroin. prescription drugs, and other chemicals. The success rates are much higher with programs that use the 12 steps for various reasons; mainly, the steps guide patients along the path of healing, and continue to be beneficial even after treatment has been completed.
