Drug Rehab Referral Celebrates Over 1000 Placements Into Drug Rehab

A Successful Drug Rehab Program Can Help End Addiction, and This Is the Month to Do It

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - September 11, 2007) - It's September once again and we're celebrating National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month: Eighteen years of educating the public on addiction and celebrating the efforts of those who have successfully overcome their alcohol and drug problems. With the World Wide Web and computers now so widely available, more and more people can be reached so they can get help, even in the smallest communities. This month is a time to celebrate the successes, and to get anyone you care about connected with an alcohol or drug rehab program and other resources that can help them get clean and sober.

Online resources include the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) toolkit. It contains step-by-step instructions for holding events and activities pertaining to Recovery month so others can be educated on how they can participate in overcoming substance abuse. This kit lists groups and individuals to contact for partnering in the activity, including healthcare providers, government officials and other influential individuals. It also outlines how to plan and publicize your events and activities through Public Service Announcements and other free advertising. You can also get Information to distribute at the events to help you get out the message about alcohol and drug addiction. And you can monitor the success of your events and return the information to SAMHSA so others can follow in your footsteps.

On a more personal note, for those who have a loved one with an alcohol or drug addiction problem, Drug Rehab Referral is also celebrating a very important achievement this month: the group has now helped 1000 people with alcohol and drug addiction problems find a successful drug rehab program that's right for them.

Drug Rehab Referral is dedicated to ensuring that those who need help with alcohol or drug addiction problems get hooked up with a drug rehab program that suits the needs of each individual who calls them for help. To date, a thousand people have been helped on the road to recovery, and a thousand lives have been changed.

The 2007 theme for September's celebration is Join the Voices of Recovery - Saving Lives, Saving Dollars. The goal is to increase awareness of the cost of addiction, both human and financial, and to get the public to understand that investing in treatment is investing in a life. If individuals step up to take responsibility for alcohol and drug addiction in their communities, more and more people can get the message about available treatment and the hope of life after addiction.
