Prescription Drugs Detox and Treatment New Brunswick
Prescription-drug addiction is a major problem in New Brunswick. The number of crimes every day that has been linked to some sort of drug addiction is just over seventy-five percent of all crimes. This province alone totals forty-four percent of all prescription-drug purchases in all of Atlantic Canada. Thousands of people everyday are obtaining illegal prescription drugs. The most common way to get these prescriptions is by forging a prescription. Obtaining prescription drugs intravenously is also on the rise as rapid as the pill form is.
There are some drug rehab treatments in New Brunswick available to everyone who lives in this province. However, spaces are limited for the options that are free. Choosing the right kind of prescription drugs detox and treatment is also a major decision. Not all treatments work for every type of addiction, or for every type of person. When looking at rehabilitation facilities ask a few questions to a professional about what type they would recommend. Some people need to be in an inpatient, especially if the addiction is severe and the withdrawal needs to be medically supervised.
The wait time to get into one of these free programs is currently about a year. The police of the city of Saint John, New Brunswick is currently working hard at speeding up that process; the police say a year wait is simply unacceptable.
There are toll-free numbers you can call, and ask your questions to professionals before any decision has to be made. If you feel better about it, there are email options available instead. There is no need to wait another minute to seek help. Putting a loved one, who is addicted to prescription drugs into rehabilitation, is very likely saving their life. The leading cause of drug death accidental overdoses is that of prescription drugs.
