In 2017, over 64,000 Americans died due to opiate abuse.
Substance Use Disorders (SUD) are primary, chronic, progressive, incurable and potentially, fatal illnesses that demand chronic disease medical management for any possibility of long-term recovery.
At RSCT we are very concerned by the current addiction epidemic and rising death rate in patients who are abusing prescription medications and illegal substances. The rates of addiction to alcohol, prescription drugs and illicit substances are alarming. The most successful treatment addresses all of the Client’s challenges by engaging the Client, their family, critical stakeholders and their community relationships.
