Transformations Treatment Center: Saving Lives from the Tragedy of Drug Overdose

With the recent rise in the number of drug overdose deaths, Southwest Florida alone has experienced a 30 percent increase over the past year; residents of the state are dealing with some sobering substance abuse problems.

    DELRAY BEACH, FL, July 10, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Particularly in the state of Florida, overdose-related drug deaths were directly attributed to the prescription opiate, OxyContin. Last year alone, more than 150 individuals were killed following misuse, abuse and overdose of the drug, other overdose deaths were attributed to Xanax and methadone. Transformations Treatment Center is a facility located in Del Ray Beach, Florida, and we provide people with a solution in life other than continuous suffering from an addiction problem: our programs save lives.

Generally, it is illegal and illicit substances like heroin or cocaine which are the preferred drugs of choice for many addicts, but recent trends show a shift in users switching to the abuse of prescription medications. Deaths from prescription drug overdoses in Southwestern Florida are higher than in any other area of the state, with a large number of overdose victims being in their 20s. Our treatment program has a vast array of experience covering a multitude of different addictions and it is our goal to help people become educated about the dangers of drugs and to give them the foundation needed to understand why getting rehabilitation is so important.

Transformations Treatment Center is aware of the growing trend in over-the-counter and prescription drug abuse and as a result, we have adopted a proactive and aggressive approach to how we handle addiction. To change the life of someone engaging in substance abuse, we incorporate a well-trained staff, compassionate care, medical attention, personalized counseling and therapy sessions and various other services, in order to help a person find out the reasons why they became addicted.

The goal of Transformations Treatment Center is to educate, enlighten and improve the quality of lives our clients will have. We know it is not only important to provide personalized attention to clients while in our care, but to also follow up after rehab, to ensure sobriety is maintained after the individual leaves treatment as well. Our staff uses an innovative combination of ongoing counseling and relapse prevention education, and if someone needs extra care, we offer continuing aftercare options and services for a certain period of time, free of charge to a client in need.

In combination with the efforts of local and state officials and law enforcement agencies, Transformations Treatment Center utilizes many different approaches to treating addiction and as a result, we save lives. If you have any questions or would like further information about our services, please contact us directly.
