Between 2001-2005, 2,678 Michigan residents lost their lives due to an addiction to alcohol indicating an urgent need for alcohol education and effective alcohol rehabilitation.
One hundred and thirteen Michigan youth under the age of 19, four hundred and forty-two young adults aged 20-34, seven hundred and twenty-nine adults aged 35-49, six hundred and sixty-four adults aged 50-64 and seven hundred and four people aged 65 and over make up the statistic of those whose life was lost to an addiction to alcohol between the years 2001-2005. If the adults had been given effective alcohol education in their youth this statistic could have been dramatically decreased. This is where Narconon Arrowhead is a leader. 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 for those already caught in the devastating downward spiral of either alcohol or drug addiction.
Detroit’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. As shown by the previous statistics regarding deaths due to alcohol addiction, the majority of those affected were those aged above 19. This shows a dire need for alcohol education for our youth to prevent them succumbing to the temptations of alcohol which will prevent them from achieving their goals and dreams once adults.
There are many things parents can do to prevent their children from drinking. One example is to 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. Another 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 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.
Having Detroit’s youth educated on the dangers and consequences of alcohol will allow them to achieve their goals and dreams. Narconon Arrowhead wants to make sure that Detroit’s youth have every opportunity to prosper as they become young adults working in the community. This is why Narconon Arrowhead has our drug educational specialist travel to Detroit and speak with the youth in Detroit and surrounding schools about the dangers and realities of alcohol abuse. The best defense against any addiction is knowledge.
