Clearbrook Treatment Centers-Prescription Drug Abuse Rehab

The abuse of prescription drugs in Pennsylvania is a growing problem. Most people take prescription drugs safely, although approximately 48 million people ages 12 and above (20% of the United States population) have used prescription drugs for non medical reasons.

There are three common categories of prescription drugs.

1. Opioids-often used to treat pain
2. Central Nervous System (CNS) Depressants-used to treat sleep disorders & anxiety.
3. Stimulants-used to treat narcolepsy and ADHD
These drugs are easily accessible considering people with legitimate needs are using them. There is a trend with adolescents appropriating the prescription drugs from their parents, other family members and friends. You can find them in almost any medicine cabinet. In addition to the increasing number of medicines being prescribed for health issues, some medications can be easily obtained from the Internet. Online pharmacies make it possible for abusers without the proper documentation to get a prescription (which is illegal).
It is also not uncommon for over-the-counter drugs to be absued. Cough suppressants, antihistamines and sleep aids are just an example of drugs easily accessible and easily abused.
The result of abusing prescription drugs and over-the-counter drugs are: confusion, sedation, coma, seizures, decreased respiration, respiratory depression, withdrawal and death.
If you or someone you know is using prescription drugs, please seek help. Clearbrook Treatment Centers is the leading drug rehab in Pennsylvania. We have been helping adults, adolescents and families reach sobriety/recovery. For more information on Clearbrook and the signs and symptoms of drug abuse, go to www.clearbrookinc.com

I had little knowledge about this irreversible sterilization. It is good to know that certain non-profitable organizations are taking care of this problem. Many more organizations which have access to good alcohol rehab centers like this should come up as the birth of unwanted babies has been a quite a big concern in the country.
