Results from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) found that “In 2010, an estimated 22.6 million Americans aged 12 or older were current illicit drug users.” The NSDUH obtains information on nine categories of illicit drug use: marijuana, cocaine, heroin, hallucinogens, inhalants, and prescription pain killers, tranquilizers, stimulants, and sedatives. There exists a sea of addicts in this ocean of drug abuse. 28 day “quick fix” treatment centers and 12 step programs have not proven to be the mapped road out that an addict needs, withnessed in their success rates. 28 day and 12 step programs have anywhere from a 5%-20% success rate. Clearly not enough to rehabilitate the approximate 23 million Americans abusing drugs.

Once an addict begins the deadly game of drug abuse, the chance for recovery is a narrow opening in a very dark world. A person may take drugs or alcohol either to avoid pain and discomfort, or get rid of unwanted feelings. The addict compulsively tries to achieve the same good feelings the drug once gave them by taking more and more and, as their physical condition worsens, they use larger amounts of the drug to handle the growing level of misery. How can an addict grab onto a chance to live life again?
