Check into Detox for the holidays. It might save your life.
We have gotten to know tens of thousands of individuals and families over the past 16 years, as we provided substance abuse treatment options in our 7 medical detox centers. Every year, without exception, interest spikes in the fall. This is true in New Jersey, Georgia, and Florida.
Each fall, some families fall into crisis, as some individuals lose control over their lives. Money runs out, consequences overwhelm us, some bosses and spouses get fed up and finally pull the plug, leaving addicts with little choice but clean up, or get out. By Thanksgiving and into Hanukkah and Christmas, demand for detox services has reached a peak.
Detox is the first step of substance abuse treatment. As many people have learned, the best place to get help formulating an appropriate treatment plan is inside a Sunrise Detox center.
This Year, things are A Bit Different : People are Dying
This year we have another, more sinister motivator nipping at the heels of those struggling with substance abuse: sudden accidental death by overdose. The number of sudden deaths has skyrocketed in just the past 12 months, in all of the states we monitor.
The immediate risks associated with uncontrollable drug use, (especially opioids, heroin, and cocaine), has never been higher. As we have highlighted previously, even a minute amount of a deadly substances like carfentanil, mixed into heroin or cocaine, will kill you. And these deadly chemicals are known to have been mixed into street drugs across America right now. They are indiscriminately killing people, unexpectedly.
Tips for Staying Sober, and Tips for Surviving the Holidays
The Internet is full of articles promising “Tips for Staying Sober during the Holidays”.
If the holidays are challenging for those who have managed to stay sober in recovery, imagine how much those same stressors push those who are still using, to use more?
Imagine how many opioid addicts are pushed to do a little more, a little more often, or to try something new that may be deadly? How many who are close to using a needle, finally do it? How many will continue to use during this holiday, and die from sudden overdose?
Rather than publish yet another "N ways to Stay Sober this Holiday Season", we would like to highlight the one tip for surviving that few mention : check yourself into a detox center. It could save your life.
