Where Can I Find Drug Treatment Programs?

Question by cassie s: Where can I find drug treatment programs?
I have a friend who is addicted to drugs. And I would like to help him clean his act. We’ve been friends since college but after getting fired from his work, he turned to drugs. I’ve been telling him to stop but he keeps telling me that he will eventually. I would like to help him seek professional help before he gets worse. I am scared that he would get AIDS out of sharing needles with his ‘drug friends’. Can anyone tell me where I can get him drug treatment programs?

There are a lot of rehab facilities now offering drug treatment programs and I am sure you can find one for your friend. You’re right about the possibility of him getting infected with HIV because of sharing needles. And it will change his life for good. The issue on AIDS has long been a major concern globally for the past 25 years. In fact, a lot of campaigns have been made to inform people about it – how one can get it, what happens after one gets infected and how to prevent it. Sharing needles is a part of the whole drug addiction issue. But aside from the other longterm effects of drug addiction, getting AIDS can be the most complicated one because of its effect on an individual.

The HIV or Human Immunodeficiency Virus causes AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) wherein the virus multiplies in the white blood cells leading to a weakened immune system. And the catch is that people who have HIV don’t feel anything for years only until a complication happens. With HIV attacking the immune system, the person becomes more vulnerable to all sorts of diseases.

Sadly, there is still no cure to AIDS. But there are drug treatment programs that can help your friend stop his addiction. There are many rehab centers you can find in the Internet and I am sure there is one that has effective drug treatment programs. I just hope that he can overcome this before he gets infected with the virus.
