New Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog Explores Link Between Holiday Stress and Alcohol & Drug Abuse

The Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog post also highlights some common holiday-related triggers that recovering and former addicts should be aware of and, if possible, steer clear of as well. These include:

Experiencing the adverse symptoms of Seasonal Affect Disorder as the days grow shorter and colder
Feeling isolated and alone, which can lead to sadness and depression

Added Per Wickstrom: “People who are currently struggling with alcohol or drug abuse or addiction, or who have a history of such struggles, need to be extremely cautious and extra aware during and after the holiday season. This isn’t easy, but it can be done if they have the willpower to say no, the self-discipline to stay in control of their alcohol consumption, and the wisdom to connect with friends and peer groups who support their sober lifestyle – rather than steer them away from it.”

Fort Lauderdale Drug and Alcohol Rehab Provides Safe Haven to New Jersey Addicts to Escape the Holiday Stress and Cold Weather


Fort Lauderdale, Florida (PRWEB) December 16, 2014

The State of New Jersey has been battling a prescription drug problem, and now faces a serious heroin problem. Abuse of Oxycontin and other prescription painkillers are highly addictive and were once readily available. When authorities enacted laws making the prescription pain killers much harder to acquire, many addicts began using heroin because the street drug is easier to get and allowed those addicted to painkillers to achieve a stronger high for less money. Dealers made it easy by delivering heroin to the suburbs where the prescription epidemic was ballooning. New Jersey Detective Sgt. Richard Gonzalez called the opiate addiction in the state “an epidemic”. The addiction problem is only getting worse, as numbers of admitted heroin addicts between the ages of 18 and 25 rose by more than 12% from 2010 to 2011. Heroin is a very dangerous drug and rehab is almost always necessary for this type of addiction. Deaths from heroin and prescription drugs in Ocean City, New Jersey alone doubled in 2013.

Cornerstone Recovery Center in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida recognizes the need to offer New Jersey residents a place to receive alcohol and drug treatment in a warm, sunny and nurturing atmosphere. Since heroin addiction has become such a problem in New Jersey, Cornerstone is committed to offering a refuge to New Jersey heroin addicts seeking treatment. The year round warm weather in South Florida adds to the appeal for northerners looking to enter a rehab for treatment. Stepping outside of the environment has been known to increase the recovery rate when patients are not tempted by familiar locations and familiar faces that contributed to their addiction in the first place.

Cornerstone operates a newly renovated housing facility located on the Intracoastal Waterway, just steps from the beach. It is a completely remodeled live-in location with transportation provided between the residence and the drug treatment center. Cornerstone Recovery Center director of admissions, Ryan Johnston, explains, “We invite New Jersey residents seeking addiction treatment to come out of the snow and into Florida’s warm sunshine. When recovery patients can focus on themselves and their treatment, it leads to a successful road back to health. Our goal is to keep your costs to a minimum with little or no out-of-pocket expenses.” Now that health insurance provides equal coverage for addiction treatment and physical illnesses, clients have the peace of mind of receiving the proper treatment without worrying about the cost of rehab.

New Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog Explores Link Between Holiday Stress and Alcohol & Drug Abuse


(PRWEB) December 17, 2014

As the holidays draw near, Best Drug Rehabilitation, which offers treatment programs and believes that having family close by during a stay in rehab can make a big difference in whether or not the process is successful, is asking a critically important question that will be relevant to millions of people over the coming days and weeks: does holiday stress amplify alcohol and drug abuse?

“While many people look forward to the holidays and can’t wait to settle in with family and friends, give and unwrap presents, and eat and drink to their heart’s content and perhaps a bit more than that, for other people the holidays are a much darker time; even dreadful,” commented Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO Per Wickstrom. “Unfortunately, some of these people feel that the only way they can cope is by turning to drugs and alcohol — which temporarily and artificially makes them feel better or in control, but without question a slippery slope that always ends very badly for both the individual and his or her loved ones.”

The Best Drug Rehabilitation Blog post also highlights some common holiday-related triggers that recovering and former addicts should be aware of and, if possible, steer clear of as well. These include:


Attending holiday parties that offer ample amounts of alcohol
Spending more time with specific family members with whom they have unresolved emotional issues
Feeling peer pressure from friends and others who keep telling them to “loosen up and have a good time” by drinking or (less commonly but still prevalent) using drugs
Experiencing the adverse symptoms of Seasonal Affect Disorder as the days grow shorter and colder
Feeling isolated and alone, which can lead to sadness and depression

Added Per Wickstrom: “People who are currently struggling with alcohol or drug abuse or addiction, or who have a history of such struggles, need to be extremely cautious and extra aware during and after the holiday season. This isn’t easy, but it can be done if they have the willpower to say no, the self-discipline to stay in control of their alcohol consumption, and the wisdom to connect with friends and peer groups who support their sober lifestyle – rather than steer them away from it.”
