Millions of Americans, young and old, suffer from addiction in one form or another. Addiction affects more people in our country than diabetes, heart conditions or cancer. As more individuals are succumbing to the disease of drug and alcohol addiction, the treatment of such addictions has become an expansive and lucrative industry.
Although drug and alcohol treatment facilities are designed to care for those struggling with addiction as they work towards gaining control over their addiction and reintegrating into society, many do not adequately provide care and some may even become enablers for addiction.
Rehab Abuse Legal Help
Individuals with substance abuse issues and their family and friends often turn to rehab centers as a last resort, desperate to find a safe environment where the substance abuser will be attended to by experts in addiction, recovery, and mental disorders associated with substance abuse and addiction. These types of treatment centers often promise to treat both addiction and mental disorders, but the record often shows consistently they fail to deliver on their promises.
Instead of getting the help they are in desperate need of, patients and loved ones often find that the programs are disorganized, are not staffed by enough people qualified to provide the needed care, lacking in expert care, missing safeguards designed to prevent relapse. Some patients may even be subjected to forms of abuse.
The failings of treatment centers and rehab abuse can have tragic consequences. Some patients relapse and may suffer deadly overdoses. Other victims of rehab abuse may reach the point of taking their own lives.
