Addiction impacts the lives of millions of men, women, children, families and loved ones. Not only do addictions impact the user or the individual who suffers from the addiction but they also have a negative impact on the friends and family members, the co-workers and employers and the society that the individual lives within as a whole. The economic impact of addiction has led to millions of arrests, increased taxes to cover the cost of incarceration, decreases in productivity at places of work and a wide range of other complications that affect both the addict and society as a whole.
Rehab International provides detailed guides on various types of addiction including those related to substance abuse problems such as drug or alcohol addiction as well as various other addictions such as sex addiction, internet addiction and food addictions. A common thought is that people only suffer from substance abuse as an addiction—this is not true. Millions of people suffer from other addictions that cause adverse consequences in their lives such as sexual addictions or food addictions. Rehab International looks to provide details on these addictions as well in hopes of helping people to better understand the addictions that people suffer from and also what they can do to help.
Each guide provides details about the addiction itself, how it develops, what to watch out for or possible signs and symptoms of the addiction and when to seek help. If you can’t find the answers you’re looking for, Rehab International also provides a 24 hour, toll free hotline that features counselors and rehab specialists who can answer questions, provide free referrals and offers guidance.
