Pain and addiction

  • National Survey on Drug Use and Health revealed that more than 19 million US citizens, age 12 and older, had some sort of addiction problem in 2017. During the same year, 4% of American adolescents suffered from the same disease.
    Besides the fact that addiction is treatable, especially if the treatment is right, people with substance use disorder can try different treatments, if their situation allows it. Some individuals will receive long-term residential treatment with enough time to survive the withdrawal and learn important strategies for future steps. Others will have better results with less restrictive outpatient rehabilitation programs, especially in the case of mild addiction.
