Prescription Drugs Detox And Treatment In Manitoba

Prescription-drug addiction in Manitoba often does not get the attention it needs. Cocaine is reaching epidemic proportions with its ease of availability on the streets, leaving crime fighters busy putting out fires. It is, however, a problem that is on the rise.

It can be quite hard for anyone living in Manitoba to find a rehab or detox facility. Looking online even is hard to bring up locations of any drug rehab facility in all of Manitoba. There are only reported to be about fifty facilities in the entire province. However, they are ready to help with their phone numbers available to anyone; some are twenty-four-hour-a-day numbers. Getting help in Manitoba starts by contacting one of these facilities either by phone or by an email. They do promise that your name and number will be held in confidence, so you, as a concerned loved one, can make a phone call to ask for help.

Anyone is at risk for prescription-drug addiction; however, women are more likely to be prescribed addictive sedatives then men are. Women are also twice as likely to become addicted to these medications over time. Senior citizen women are at the highest risk for addiction, regardless of their race or income level.

Although to a family member watching a loved one with an addiction, it seems so simple, it is not that easy for them. They cannot simply just stop their brain over time, has become used to the chemicals in the drug, and now the addict's brain will trick the person into thinking they need these drugs to function.

It is best to go through withdrawal under medical supervision.
