I was watching the cable this morning and one of the shows that was on was 101 most shocking moments in Hollywood. One of the 101 was that John Belushi died of a drug overdose in his hotel room. He had been partying with some other stars like Robin Williams and others and asked the girl he was with to give him an ingestion of drugs that ended his life. He was so young and talented and it seemed that people around him should have seen that he needed help. If only he had gotten help. We would still be blessed with his comedic talent today.

The good thing is that there are facilities around to provide help for others that John so desperately needed. Drug Rehabilitation facilities like 4rehabilitation have the goal of long term permanent withdrawal from the drugs. They can tailor the program to meet the needs of the client by looking at the severity of the addiction as well as the compatibility of the person to the program to achieve success. As a resource they can answer any questions you may have in order to make the right decision regarding the program your love one may need.

They even have a host of information to help you understand what may be needed or happening to your drug addicted love one. Fro example, did you know that detox was the first step in kicking the habit? With some drugs there is always the fear of relapse as it will be a life long struggle. This is something that can happen quickly after release from a program if there is not aftercare. I really did not think about aftercare and that needed support system.

IF you or a family member is in trouble, seek assistance. 4rehabilitation even offers a free assessment. Finding a program can be a very overwhelming experience but they have the resources and a caring professional staff to assist in helping you make the right decision. Call them tollfree at 877-84-SOBER (877-847-6237). Don't wait or it may be too late.


You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
