A report recently released by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) revealed an 8 percent increase in opiate rehab admissions over the past decade. Alcohol and marijuana also saw an increase in rehab admissions – alcohol, at 42 percent, with the second being opiates, including prescription pain killers, at 21 percent.“We are interested solely in getting people into recovery, not just into rehab,” begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center. “This report doesn’t address how many individuals entered rehab a second or third time due to relapse; unfortunately, relapse is very commonplace. Mountainside is proud that individuals leaving its program have above-average, long-term sobriety success rates. Our program utilizes a holistic approach to treating individuals as opposed to simply treating the addiction. Our drug rehab is truly individualized for each person and that is one of the reasons our clients have such great success with staying sober.”
