Recovery from substance dependency requires a great deal of effort, participation and understanding on the part of the individual, their family, and their community. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has dedicated resources to assist local communities with the prevalence of substance dependency. The national agency conducted a survey on substance abuse and mental disorder across the country. The study was done to create awareness of the high incidence of substance abuse and the increase of mental disorders which is now at epidemic proportions.
In 2012, SAMHSA conducted a general population study to analyze substance use. It is estimated that 8.5% of people ages 12 and older reported illicit substance abuse. The study also found that nearly 2% of the individuals surveyed have not yet received any form of treatment to begin their individual recovery process.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of National Recovery Month and with the urgent need to control the current substance dependency epidemic, New Vision™ medical stabilization service wants to increase awareness, educate the community, and help people in need to start the path towards lifelong recovery.
