Drug addiction is one of the many growing social problems that's common to most countries. It's undeniably causing a great problem to the community especially if it's already accelerated to violence and is already causing an increase in crime rate. In the Philippines, most parents are concerned about their teens especially if they are living in an environment where so many factors influence their child's growth and development. parents need to be extra cautious and mindful about their children's behavior. Personally, as a mother I would always be on a look out to my teens circle of friends as this is where drug addiction usually emanates from. It's a good thing that science and medicine has been working hand in hand to find solutions and cure for drug addiction. I've heard about this rapid opiate detox. This could make parents feel hopeful that there is always a hope for a changed life for their children.
However, there is a growing concern about the safety of the procedure so there is a need to ensure the professionalism of the medical practitioner attending to the patient. Rapid detox only treats the physical condition of the patient, there is still a need for a long term counseling by the experts to ensure the total recovery of the patient. Parents who are thinking of having their children undergo this kind of treatment should do a proper research to determine it's effectiveness. After all, we owe our children the best care and proper attention during this critical period.
