In almost every state we can find one very common problem, the problem of drug and alcohol abuse. If you were going to survey the whole state Louisiana, you would find that their major problem is also drug and alcohol abuse. This is definitely a problem because drug addiction causes behavioral problems which often lead to violence and crime or at times this is also responsible for suicides.
This is the same with alcohol abuse problems. When the person is influenced by the intoxication of alcohol, he or she can go out of control and can become very talkative or perhaps even violent in some cases. This is the same old problem we have had for many years. We do not seem to understand why it is that it cannot be stopped.
The government and other private sectors are working hard to build facilities and other rehab programs in Louisiana to help drug addicts and alcoholics, but the problem is, we are just helping them not stopping them. The question is still hanging in our minds, are we going to be contented with helping them and rehabilitating drug addicts and alcoholics year after year after year?
Or why not find a way to totally eliminate the force of drugs that destroys the lives of our young ones in the society. The shocking truth here in Louisiana is that young people can just buy over the counter medications and abuse them by partaking in large amounts. Another additional menace to society is the manufacturing and distribution of drugs from Mexico and other countries.
They continually enter the ports of many states in the US bringing their goods with them. If the government has found the way to annihilate terrorism then we can be pretty sure there is a way to eliminate illegal drugs. Let us not wait for another twin tower to fall, because maybe by this time we can no longer rise up. When drugs and alcohol destroy the lives or our children one by one, a piece of our future is also destroyed.
What will be left of our future if the country does not act now? If you want to help call 800-303-4372. Ask questions, and be part if this endeavor, and find a rehab program in Louisiana if needed. The world is in need of help, and we need all the help we can get to stop the drug menace and the alcoholism.
If you have any questions relating to this, or feel that you or a loved one is in need of assistance, please don’t hesitate to call. We have trained counselors who are available to speak with you anytime you call and answer any concerns you have.
The saying still holds much truth: “an ounce of prevention is better that a pound of cure”. Parents also play a very important role in their children’s lives. That is why parents should teach their children very well and be a good example to them, so that they may grow up doing the right things and enjoying a much better life.
