The number of people needing substance abuse treatment is increasing throughout the United States due to the growing amount of individuals addicted to prescription drugs, abusing synthetic designer drugs, or abusing heroin and other street drugs. Alcohol is the most abused substance among young and older people today besides the use of marijuana and due to excessive drinking and chronic use the need for treatment is in high demand.
There are also thousands of people struggling with life because their gambling is out of control and their lives are falling apart because they're unable to stop. Many pathological gamblers also have a drinking problem and they're unable to control either addiction and are in desperate need of help. Although many compulsive gamblers are unable to see their behavior as addiction, their lives and often their loved ones lives are deeply affected by their out of control gambling. When a person stops gambling if they're addicted, there are symptoms of withdrawal experienced such as irritability, anxiety, agitation and depression so they often will continue to gamble unless they receive help.
