I heard some startling statistics today and I wonder if they are true? I've heard only 5% of people who go to drug rehab stay sober for over a year. Is this true? It's almost beyond belief that so small a number would be successful.

I can't find any statistics on that but I sure hope not! I know watching that show Intervention it seems like most of them who go to rehab end up back on whatever they were doing. Addiction is a very powerful thing and if the support is not there and the person doesn't want help then I don't see it working.

It often takes repetitive attempts to overcome drug addiction.  I was actually watching Dr. Phil today and he talked about that.  He went back to talk about his most successful case on TV, a young man named Brandon.  It took him 3 drug rehab attempts and time in jail before he finally got it and is on year 5 sober and free.

Rhyannon, I watch intervention too, and I'd say it's a mix of success stories and relapse cases. Even though a lot of people relapse, I think it's important to at least try to get them help. I'd rather that 5% succeed than none at all. Loretta is right too, it takes some longer than others to finally get it right.

I found this page and it says that 90% of 10,000 patients were able to abstain and remain sober for a year when they included AA or NA in there treatment plans.

Don't go by any fake statistics related to rehab process, Since we have operating long into this work, where maximum no. patients are leading a sober life by overcoming their addiction problem. If you know any person who has given up addiction through rehab, ask him his experience & life after addiction, i can challenge you it will be more positive then negative one.

In the event that you are harmed at work, in a mischance, or
at home, this would be a decent time to call your nearby dire forethought
focus.

On the off chance that you are experiencing a sore throat,
get yourself to a pressing consideration focus where you won't need to waste a
whole day holding up to be dealt with.

your boyfriend will need to undergo another round of drug rehab
treatment, and address those issues, that are related to his relapse and
possible triggers.
