Alcohol Rehab Chicago

Each year in Illinois, hundreds of people die needlessly as the result of driving after drinking. Hundreds more are seriously injured or permanently disabled, and millions of dollars of property damage occur indicating an urgent need for alcohol education and effective alcohol rehabilitation.
Zero tolerance is a state law that went into effect on January 1, 1995 for drivers under the age of 21 in the state of Illinois. The law provides for suspension of the driving privileges of any person under the age of 21 who drives after consuming alcohol. Like the name zero tolerance suggests, any trace of alcohol in a young person's system can result in a suspended drivers license. Even with this law in effect each year there are about 3,000 zero tolerance violations recorded. With 3,000 violations a year despite the enforcement of this law shows a vital need for alcohol education and alcohol rehabilitation for those already caught in the grip of alcohol addiction. This is where Narconon Arrowhead steps in as  leader in these areas. Not only does Narconon Arrowhead educate our youth about the dangers of alcohol but also provides rehabilitation services for alcohol and drug addiction with a 70% success rate.

Chicago's youth need to be aware that alcohol lowers a person's inhibitions and ability to make correct judgments along with the fact that motor skills in an individual decrease once one has consumed alcohol. If a child is taught about the dangers of alcohol and drugs at an early age this can prevent them from traveling down the road of alcohol OR drug addiction. It is a proven fact that the younger a child begins drinking alcohol they increase the probability they will have to battle an addiction later in life. This begins a pattern which if not handled will ruin not only their adult life but also those who love and care for them. The best defense against any addiction is knowledge.

There are many things parents can do to prevent their children from drinking. One example is to drill questions with your son or daughter that they are likely to be asked concerning alcohol or drugs until they are able to answer without hesitation and with confidence. Give your children an answer for a way out when offered a drink, i.e. I am trying out for the baseball/volleyball team and need to stay in shape. Establish a strong communication line with your children. Be the person they can come to with a problem rather than reacting and help them figure out a solution to that problem. You want to be open and honest when speaking with your children about alcohol addiction and communicate with them on a level which they can understand. Listen instead of judging. This is of the utmost importance because younger individuals who try alcohol are more likely to experiment with drugs.
