Alcohol and Drugs has becomea major problem within the Jackson area among adults and adolescents. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime(UNODC) reports that around 5 for every penny of the total populace utilized anillegal medication in 2010 and 27 million individuals, or 0.6 for each penny ofthe universes grown-up populace, can be delegated issue tranquilize clients. Itis assessed that liquor manhandle brings about 2.5 million passing’s for everyyear and that heroin, cocaine and different medications oversee 0.
1 to 0.2million passing’s for every year. Druguse has been a concern for years among adolescences. There are many adolescents and adultsstruggling with depression and anxiety which is leading them to substanceabuse. A lot of these people need asupport system, especially from their family. Mississippi needs more facilities that can make them feel like they arewanted rather than the staff is only here because its there job.
My main concern with helping people withaddictions is to get their family involved. This most definitely can be an overwhelming situation for them. There are many things you can do to help suchas educating yourself about drugs addiction, offer your support, encouragethem, and support the recovery process. Things not to do is constantly preachto them about the mistakes they made in the past, making excuses, arguing withthem, or feeling guilty or responsible for their behavior. FirstMississippi will need to come up with a program that will not only assist themwith their addiction but also make sure they maintain. Mississippi has a 30 day, 60 day, or 90 dayprogram that can assist them while trying battle their addictions and aftertheir done with either of those time periods they are on their own which canlead to becoming back addicted to drugs and alcohol.
The goal would be to help them get rid of theiraddiction as well as stay clean for the remainder of their lives. This program will take the community comingtogether as one and being able to be there for one another in order for it towork.
