Pennsylvania has seen an increase in drug-related deaths over the last several years with 2017 racking up a total of 5,388 drug-related deaths, reported by the Centers for Disease Control.  And while many understand the risks of overdose, it somehow does not deter enough people to not abuse drugs and that is how strong of a hold these drugs have over individuals. Overdose is not the only risk when abusing drugs. Long-term health complications are a part of the addiction for users, especially the drug users who chronically abuse drugs or alcohol. Organ failure, brain damage, flashbacks, and more are all part of the price to pay when abusing drugs. It is important to end your addiction before it is too late or you have developed a major health complication, threatening the quality of your life. Substance abuse treatment in Philadelphia is recommended to those attempting to get off of drugs or alcohol. It offers addicts care at different levels including detox, outpatient, and residential.
