Gatehouse Academy Reminds Others - Addiction Doesn't Take a Break for the Holidays

WICKENBURG, AZ--(Marketwire - December 29, 2009) - Gatehouse Academy, the leader in the industry of long term addiction treatment for Young Adults, would like to take the opportunity to remind everyone that the disease of Alcoholism and Addiction doesn't go on vacation during the Holidays. They know all too well from their own personal experiences, as families typically come together, this is the best time of year to intervene and help loved ones that are wrestling with this affliction.

In a statement from Michael Baldassare, Director of Marketing, "My parents intervened just before the Christmas season, despite my plea to hold off until post New Years. The truth of the matter was they were scared to death I wouldn't make it that long."

It is for this very reason that Gatehouse Academy doesn't take a break for the Holiday's either. "We have round the clock admissions lines open for any parent or young person struggling to stay sober this Christmas and New Years," announces Todd Welch, Director of Admissions. "Call us, we are here for you."

This article is not meant in any way to put a damper on a holiday season meant to be filled with joy, cheer, and gratitude. It is to bring light to the idea that there is hope this holiday for those families and individuals tortured by this disease. If you or a loved one is suffering right now, don't wait until after the holiday to deal with the issue. There isn't a better day than TODAY to reach out for help.

"On a happier note, we would like to wish everyone a safe Happy & Healthy Holiday season, filled with Hope & Gratitude!"
