NARCONON TROIS-RIVIERES, Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, Canada: When people go to a Narconon rehab center or any other rehabilitation center, it usually means they have hit a point in their lives where things can’t get much worse. Unfortunately, there are many who still avoid getting help even when their world has turned upside down. If only they would realize that going to a rehab center can save their lives, in more ways than one.
There were 11,773 drunken driving deaths in 2008. In Canada 33.8% of motor vehicle deaths were associated with alcohol use. All of these could have been prevented if a rehabilitation center would have been utilized. Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of death around the world.
Deaths caused by cirrhosis of the liver and other ailments due to alcoholism increase every year. Pancreatitis is also a contributing factor in many alcohol related deaths. Repression of the respiratory system is a major cause of death for drug addicts, especially those who use drugs such as Oxycontin and Oxycodone. These deaths also can be prevented by seeking help from a rehabilitation center.
In the United States alone, prescription drugs cause most of the more than 26,000 fatal overdoses each year. Add that to the number of illicit drug users overdose statistics and you up to nearly 60,000 a year. Those are 60,000 people that could have lived had they gone to a drug rehabilitation center.
Pregnancies of drug and alcohol users many times end in spontaneous abortions or serious, life threatening illnesses to the fetus or newly born child. Innocent lives have been taken as a result of drugs and alcohol.
Rehabilitation centers not only prevent actual lives from being taken, but they also can affect the quality of lives people live. A person does not have to die to have the essence of their lives taken away. Drug and alcohol addiction causes people to lose their jobs, families, friends, and much more. In a sense, there are many people still living who have no lives due to addiction. Rehabilitation centers can help them to get their lives back. They can help addicts learn to resist the temptations and use techniques to live life without drugs and/or alcohol.
Rehabilitation centers such as those in the Narconon network help to save lives not only in the literal sense, but by saving the quality of lives too. The time to get help is now. It could save your life and it could save the lives of many others. Rehabilitation can improve your quality of life and the number of years you may have left on this earth.
