The help center is educating people across the country about the dangers of prescription drug abuse as well as treatment options for those who are struggling, reports

Huntington Beach, CA – November 1, 2018 /MarketersMedia/

It is estimated that prescription drug abuse increased by 76 percent between 1998 and 2005. With these troubling statistics in mind, Prevail Intervention, one of the country’s premier informational resources for mental health and substance abuse support, is weighing in on the issue. Through the publication of an in-depth educational article, the help hotline is exploring some of the causes and dangers of the current prescription drug abuse crisis as well as sharing information about potential treatment options for struggling addicts.

“There is no doubt that America is in full-on crisis mode when it comes to opioid addition and prescription drug abuse,” said Erika Bell of Prevail Intervention. “However, with so much conflicting information out there, many people fail to understand how we got here and, more importantly, what we can do to dig ourselves out of this hole. It’s vital that we recognize and address the role of the healthcare system and pharmaceutical marketing and incentivizing in creating this problem. For those looking for clear answers, this new educational article provides just that.”

Entitled “Prescription Drug Abuse – Who’s To Blame,” Prevail Intervention’s newest in-depth article covers the most pressing issues on the topic, including how pharmaceutical companies have promoted drug abuse, the growing statistics of opioid and prescription drug abuse, the dangers of short-term prescription drug use, and the efficacy of available treatment options. The article also points readers to important resources that will help them better understand the science behind opioid addiction and how it affects the human body and brain.

Bell went on to say, “Opioid addition is uniquely difficult to tackle because of the way it affects the brain. However, long-term recovery is possible with science-backed, medically-assisted treatment methods. Our team speaks with hundreds of families and loved ones every day, and we understand how hard it can be to find help. Rather than dismissing addicts as immoral and devoid of ethics, we want to bring understanding to a confusing subject and lead people toward real solutions.”
