Prescription Drugs Detox and Treatment for St. Catharines, Ontario
Prescription-drug abuse, like many other illicit substances seems to be increasing its hold on the communities of Canada. Drugs of all sorts seem to be on the rise everywhere. As if this weren’t bad enough no matter how many treatment centers a community has and how successful, that just doesn’t seem to be enough spaces to go around. However, there may be a glimmer of hope and this lies in the city of St Catharine’s.
Prescription-drug addiction is on the rise in all the provinces. It is pervasive and insidious in the fact that it knows and respects no boundaries. The drug addiction plays no favourites with any particular walk of life or social class. Oddly enough this is one of the few drug problems that in a number of ways affects the senior population. Seniors on average are prescribed a number of medications by doctors. These multiple prescriptions over the course of time can in some instances develop into an addiction at times quite unintentionally but an addiction all the same. Another problem faced by seniors is again linked to their multiple prescriptions. Those people of the criminal element realize the veritable treasure trove of prescription drugs that the seniors are, making the senior population a primary target for both assault and theft in search of these drugs.
It is vital to have prescription drugs detox and treatment available for anyone addicted to the drugs.
The difference in the drug treatment program in St. Catharines is an organization called Turning Point. This organization approached treatment for drug addiction in a somewhat different way. This treatment involves the use of daily sauna treatments. These treatments coupled vitamins and even acupuncture make up a totally drug free treatment program. The daily sauna treatment evidently sweats the toxins out of the soft tissue. In many drug addiction cases the substance that was abused remains in the soft tissue of the body making it difficult to truly dispel the cravings. The sauna removes all traces of the drug from your system making it almost impossible for your body to crave something it doesn’t remember.
