Everyday the residents of Texas face the growing problem of drug addiction. The problem in Texas is growing so rapidly that officials can’t find a way to stop it. The Office of National Drug Control Policy reported that over 88,000 individuals sought help through DSHS (Department of State Health Services) funded treatment programs from January to December 2008. There are still thousands of people who need residential treatment in Texas, so are the DSHS funded programs what is really needed?
With so many people still addicted that have previously sought treatment, a new approach to handle addiction needs to be taken. Residential treatment is designed to give a person 24 hour care. While outpatient and seven day detoxifications help some individuals, they should not take the place of a residential treatment program.
An effective residential treatment program will teach a person the tools and skills necessary to leave the program and become a positive, contributing member of society. The residential treatment program will not substitute one drug for another and will leave the person walking out of the doors completely drug free.
