What are the benefits of inpatient drug rehab? For a person who is addicted to drugs or alcohol, deciding to kick their habits and return to a normal life is one of the best decisions they could ever make. When you consider the number of harmful side effects, including the increased risk of death (or causing death to others while under the influence), we can see how important it is to sober up.
Nearly 90 people die each day in the United States from heroin overdoses alone. Drug and alcohol abuse has become an epidemic. The one lie abusers continuously tell themselves is: I can quit anytime I want. The truth is - addiction takes such a firm hold over their lives that they would die without the drug. To outsiders looking in, we know the drug is killing them.
