An important new report states that there is a lack of available treatment for heroin and prescription drug abuse. Fortunately, there are a few certified drug treatment centers such as South Florida's Harbor Village where abusers can seek the professional assistance they need for recovery.

Miami, FL (PRWEB) August 16, 2013

In an article by Medical News Today (8/9) titled, "A call for more opioid dependence treatment," a new report calls for more available treatment for illegal and prescription drugs. Issued by Simon Fraser University researcher Bohdan Nosyk, the report states that an increase in treatment for both heroin and opioids would lower the number of overdose deaths.

"Prescription opioid abuse and overdose is on the rise throughout North America," says the SFU Health Sciences associate professor and lead author of the study that was published in Health Affairs. "Opioid overdose is now the second-leading cause of accidental death in the U.S., behind only motor-vehicle accidents. "People from all walks of life, including youths, are accessing these drugs and the consequences are deadly."

Drug abuse often starts with an "ok, I'll try it just once," moment, which then escalates to a life threatening problem. Only a certified, 24/7 medically supervised detox center such as Harbor Village is qualified to assist clients who are suffering from prescription drug issues. Anyone who is experiencing a problem with prescription drugs should check into this state-of-the-art facility.

At Harbor Village, a trained team of medical professionals helps clients achieve recovery from both alcohol and drugs addiction. Located in South Florida, each client receives private drug rehab in a luxury environment featuring upscale accommodations including a beautifully furnished suite with satellite television, over an acre of outdoor lounge area, spa, salon, massage and acupuncture services, nutritious, gourmet dining and the personalized support of a caring, attentive staff who is with each client every step of the recovery process.

According to "A call for more opioid dependence treatment," the report points out the rapid growth and dangers in using opioids, such as heroin, and prescription opioids like oxycodone, in Canada and the United States. It was also stated how there is a definite lack of available treatment in both countries.

"A drug abuse issue can take over your life and adversely impact your job, family and future. Check into a detox center such as Harbor Village and get rid of this terrible addiction as soon as you can," said Robert Niznik, Harbor Village CEO.
