Non 12-Step Detox and Rehabilitation Programs for Drug and Alcohol Abuse in Mississippi

Drug treatment resources throughout Mississippi do not encompass a lot of options, but there are some non-12-step facilities available for addicts, as well as the necessary support for their families. Medical detox centers do operate within non-twelve-step drug rehab centers, and this type of detox is specifically available for addicts struggling with difficult forms of addiction. Such drugs as opiates cause severe physical dependencies, and addicts will require a controlled withdrawal period to help them transition into an outpatient or residential drug rehab center.

Marcel Gemme has been helping people struggling with addiction for over 19 years. He first started as an intake counselor for a drug rehabilitation center in 2000. During his 5 years as an intake counselor, he helped many addicts get the treatment they needed. He also dealt with the families and friends of those people; he saw first-hand how much strain addiction puts on a family and how it can tear relationships apart. With drug and alcohol problems constantly on the rise in the United States and Canada, he decided to use the Internet as a way to educate and help many more people in both those countries. This was 15 years ago. Since then, Marcel has built two of the largest websites in the U.S. and Canada which reach and help millions of people each year. He is an author and a leader in the field of drug and alcohol addiction. His main focus is threefold: education, prevention and rehabilitation. To this day, he still strives to be at the forefront of technology in order to help more and more people. He is a Licensed Drug and Alcohol Treatment Specialist graduate with Honours of Stratford Career Institute.
