Crime and Drugs

It is not news to anyone that drug addiction goes hand in hand with crime.  Not necessarily for the reasons that one may think. In most cases, it is not the drug abuser or the addict that is generally responsible for an increase in crime, it is the fact in which many drug dealers have to stay outside of the law to be profitable at their business.

Rehabilitation Centers and Crime

Understanding that there is a direct correlation between drug use and crime, one would think that the ability to rehabilitate an addict should reduce crime.  By this rational, having a rehabilitation center located close by should be a positive for crime statistics.  Fighting the addiction problem directly can be the best solution.

The Link Between Drugs and Crime

The Many Benefits of Drug Rehabilitation Programs 

drugs and crime statsThere are many benefits of drug rehab programs and plan centers. In fact, these venues can help you deal and overcome all your addictions. Rehabilitation center services also feature inpatient rehab, which allows you to receive professional guidance, counseling and medication services.

You also get to participate in individual and group therapy sessions – with leading doctors that are committed to helping you combat addiction. Whether dealing with drugs or alcohol, there is no shame in looking or asking for help. In fact, you are taking a brave step towards bettering yourself and your health for years to come.

 

Outpatient Rehab Center Services

Whether dealing with alcohol addiction or substance abuse, outpatient rehab centers are committed to helping you get your life. Outpatient services do not require patients to stay in treatment centers for days or weeks. Instead, they are free to participate in counseling programs, along with individual and group therapy sessions.

Patients get to learn about the origins of their addictions, along with how to control their emotions and temptations. From outpatient to inpatient, drug rehab centers feature compassionate and caring physicians and staff. They are simply committed to helping you cope and overcome your addiction. They will never judge you and are part of a team that understands all types of additions and physical – mental – physiological symptoms and issues.

 

The Right Rehab Center for You

From drugs and alcohol to anxiety and depression, finding the right rehab center does not have to be hard. Many rehab facilities focus on one specific aspect of addition.  With the rise of opioid addiction, we have seen many rehabilitation centers focus on fighting opioid addiction.  Some have a focus on alcohol, benzodiazepines or cocaine and some even focus on doctors who have found themselves addicted.

Help From Loved Ones

Loved ones can be a great asset in getting help with addiction.  Its not always easy, but you can reach out to family members and friends for help. They are your support and will always love you no matter what.

With this in mind, you can speak to them about helping you find the best treatment center. These centers not only help you medically and mentally – but also change your life forever. In fact, guidance counselors and doctors can truly show you the path to inner happiness – and especially – a drug-free and healthier lifestyle. They also show you how to avoid triggers that can cause relapses back into addiction. This is done with:

 

  • Educating and informing you on the best ways to avoid alcohol, drugs, tobacco or other harmful substances.
  • Teaching you how to love yourself, while reconnecting with your body, mind, spirit and soul.
  • Embracing your beliefs, ethics and morals – never judging you – and helping you become a strong-minded and independent person that will no longer need “crutches” to combat daily trials and tribulations of life.
  • Helping you improve your health with proper eating habits, rest, activities, and staying positive even in the most negative situations!

IMPORTANCE OF REHABILITATION PROGRAM

AND HOW TO GO ABOUT IT

Social lifestyle, development, and interactions are important aspects of human life and therefore call for excellence and aptness in dealing with the issues that might affect the success of your livelihood. Seeking drug and alcohol rehabilitation is one sure way of ensuring social and personal success in your life for those with the problem of substance dependency. Rehab is a program that seeks to restore or heal those with drug or alcohol dependence into their former self before they became an addict or started using these substances. The program is often done in a rehabilitation center which is a facility with professionals who will help the patient overcome drug and alcohol dependency by taking them through the process of psychotherapeutic or medical treatment.  There are two types of facilities – inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab.

Drug Treatment

Drug rehab involves seeking treatment for drug substances dependency; such substances include marijuana, heroin, cocaine or other illicit drugs. At the rehabilitation center, the professionals will guide and treat all the underlying causes of addiction. In most instances, the budget and location will not matter, but the success of the program is what is most important.

Detox

Detox involves abstaining from using toxic substances and is the first step as well as the most important process in the rehabilitation program and can take up to two weeks or fourteen days. Drug detox is very helpful in preventing the patient from harmful drug effects such as unexpected cessation of drug use and is helpful in enabling the patient to completely abstain from drugs. During the detoxification process, the patients might experience withdrawal problems such as insomnia, sweating, anxiety, excessive yawning, muscle aches, runny nose, agitation, anxiety and among others.

Outpatient rehab involves visiting the rehabilitation center without necessarily having to sleep or board in the rehab facility. Outpatient detox caters the patient with the less severe problem of addiction, those with tight job or home commitment or in some instances those with budget or finance issues. Inpatient detox is for those people with severe cases of drug addiction problem and requires constant attention by the rehabilitation professionals. Opioid Detox is the third type of detox which mostly affects those who are addicted to heroin or prescribed painkillers.

It is vital to understand that drug abuse not only affects the patient but also his/her family as well. There are some common issues that are prevalent among the drug users during the detoxification process. These issues include violence, the drug users can hurt others or even themselves, such patients require restraint or sedation since they can also harm the staff members. Other effect includes psychosis which is becoming paranoid and the patient suffering from psychosis is unpredictable and can have erratic behavior.  Other sources of psychosis which may involve restraint include when patients have addictions from some of the newer street drugs such as Flakka.

Alcohol Rehabilitation

alcohol rehabAlcohol addiction is another social problem that greatly affects people, and like the drugs, they do not only affect the addicted person but his/her family members. During the rehabilitation program or detox, withdrawing from alcohol causes the following problems that include shivering, nausea or vomiting, hallucination, anxiety, insomnia, sweating among other effects. During the rehabilitation program, patients are provided with the certain form of medication for a limited period to help him/her ease discomfort.

It is important to seek rehabilitation or advice your friend or family to undergo treatment in any drug rehab program so as to prevent him/her from prolonged harmful effects that can result to more health complication or even death. After detox, the patient will start the actual treatment which will eventually help him to understand the actual causes of his/her addiction problem which can be underlying personal issues which can be resolved. The patients will also get personalized treatment specific to their problems through psychological assessments or physical diagnosis and get the treatment they require. Rehabilitation for drug or alcohol can help a patient break the cycle of dependence and provide room for living a straight and healthy life by enabling a patient to focus on staying away from distractions and interference.

Rehabilitation helps the people with an addiction problem to adjust their approach to life and substance abuse and make the correct choice as well as demonstrating a commitment to better life.

Join me for a night of sharing one of the most Horrific Murder/Suicide Cases in the New Orleans post Katrina Aftermath of Crime, Passion and Intrigue.

Made Famous during a time of deep loss and tragedy with in Orleans Parish, a sickening tale of a Romance gone wrong, found one man jumping to his death, and his girlfriend found as a victim of one of the worst kinds of murder that another human being can do to another.

Two young lovers survive the 100 Year Storm ( Katrina) in Louisiana becoming famous around the world as media darlings as the face’s of true love conquering all and survival.

But, as time went on and Stability was returned to the City, the reality of their new found fame, their drug induced habits, and the horror that followed them to826 N. Rampart Street, above the New Orleans Voodoo Spiritual Temple..

The story I am going to share is going to rock you to your cores and make you question things from a very Paranormal Aspect.

Watch as this night unfolds into what is sure to be one of my most interesting shows to date.

I will be using the tools that I have to see if we can get validation from the other side as to the other worldly involvement. Ghost Boxes will be used, Ovilus 5, Panasonic DR60 Voice Recorder, and more.

Will the spirits tell us what we wish to know? Can they use the data base of the Ovilus to give relevant and intelligent responses? Can they speak through the ghost box/spirit box? Can they say things devout of any radio by using the famed DR60 for EVP’s?

How deep do curses go? How can spirits come to possess not just this man but many others before him? Can this be stopped or is this area of New Orleans destined to yield evil again?

Join me Saturday night and lets find out together!
