Alberta Drug Rehab
The annual estimated cost of substance abuse to Alberta, including drug rehab centers, is about $4.4 billion. This translates to more than $1,400 per person per year.
There were more than 18,000 adults seeking drug rehab through the Alberta Alcohol and Drug abuse Commission for drugs other than alcohol, yet only about ten percent actually received some kind of residential drug rehabilitation program.

According to the Canadian Addiction Survey, approximately 80% of people in Alberta over the age of 15 are considered to be current drinkers, and 17% of past-year drinkers are classified as high-risk drinkers, which would result in the necessity of a good alcohol and drug rehab center.
More than 15.4% of Albertans reported using marijuana in the past year, but the number skyrocketed for young adults aged 18-19, as nearly have of them tried it in the past year. An additional 3.5% reported using an illicit drug other than marijuana. The overall percentage of people in Alberta using crack or other forms of cocaine has increased significantly in the last twenty years, while the use of other drugs such as heroin, LSD and methamphetamine has remained in the same range. However, all of North America has seen a substantial rise in the number of young adults abusing prescription drugs.
While these statistics aren’t surprising, they do outline the need for drug rehab programs that can help people overcome addiction. Contact the Drug Rehab Help Line today for immediate assistance.
Drug Rehab Centers
There are many different kinds of drug rehabs or drug treatment centers and drug rehab programs.
We will provide you with as much drug rehab information and drug addiction treatment information as possible including specific information about each type of drug rehab, and how to get into inpatient drug rehab centers that will work for all kinds of drug and alcohol addiction.
A good drug rehab typically will last for a minimum of 3 months or more. These give the person a much higher rate of success; there is no ‘quick fix’ for alcohol and drug addiction…
Completely drug-free rehabilitation is the only way to help someone overcome their drug addiction and get back their life and happiness. Substituting one form of addiction for another is not drug rehab and does not help the individual–it only makes money for the legal drug dealers and in fact adds to the existing problem.
Addiction can be overcome and we can help!
