Information on Drug Rehab

New Brunswick Private Drug Rehab Centers

Private treatments for drug or alcohol addiction have certain advantages that one should be aware of when he or she starts looking for rehab centers. Private treatments often have no waiting lists (or a very short compared to government-funded rehabs). It also offers a very one-on-one approach as there are not as many addicts being treated. Unfortunately, New Brunswick doesn’t have any private treatments. But if a person really wants to attend a private rehab as it is what suits him or her best, we can help you find a private treatment outside of New Brunswick. There are also advantages to going away for treatment since it takes the person out of the environment he was using or drinking for the duration of the treatment. This way he can go back to it when he is ready to live in it without taking drugs or alcohol.

New Brunswick Information and Situation

The province of New Brunswick makes up for 44% of all the transactions made for prescription opiates in all of Atlantic Canada. There are thousands of people in the province getting prescription opiates illegally. One of the most common is finding ways to forge scripts and acquire more pain pills at local pharmacies. This is why we need more drug rehab centers in New Brunswick to treat them.

There was a story published in June of 2009 of a woman, a single mother, with no history of drug abuse and no criminal record that was charged with attempting to forge a prescription for Percocet. The woman apparently received a script for ten Percocet from her doctor but tried to change the script to indicate it was for 90 pills. The pharmacist had noticed the prescription form had been tampered with and called the doctor to verify if the amount was correct. The woman was placed on twelve months of probation and fined 100 dollars. This is not an uncommon occurrence in New Brunswick. The addicted users, when they cannot find ways to fraud doctors and pharmacists will resort to buying these pills off of the street.

Those addicts need to get some help in a drug rehab center so that they can successfully overcome their drug addiction. There are different types of drug rehab treatments, and some offer specialized help to get people off prescription drugs.

Overview of Drug Use in New Brunswick

The province of New Brunswick has an approximate population of 750,000. It is part of the Maritimes. The predominant drug problem in New Brunswick is associated with opiate-based drugs as the area borders the state of Maine in the United States. The whole New England area is affected by the abuse and sales of opiates.

Fast Facts

One hundred and three people died in the year 2003 from vehicle crashes in New Brunswick. Ninety-six of these deaths were determined to be alcohol-related. It was further determined that 40 deaths or 41.7% were directly attributed to the misuse of alcohol.

In addition, there were 170 people seriously injured in single-vehicle crashes this year. Eighty-two or 48% were alcohol-related. There were 277 seriously injured people in multi-vehicle collisions in New Brunswick. Of these, 29 or 10.5% were directly related to alcohol.

Depending on the amount of information available, and how the person died, according to the study, is the difference between alcohol being present and being a contributing factor. Motor vehicle fatalities were considered to be alcohol involved if there was at least one drinking driver or pedestrian in the fatal crash.

Using the province of Ontario as an example: it costs at least $200 order to see an emergency doctor before any tests are run or anything is documented on paper. Consequently, in the case of the above statistics, the approximate cost to the medical system for just the serious alcohol-related injuries would be $22,200 at the very minimum. How many medical supplies could be purchased with these funds?
