Grants for Drug Rehab and Treatment

Several studies shown that more than 20 million people are getting addicted to drugs; in this number, approximately 135,000 people die due to drug addiction every year. Back then, drug and alcohol addiction can never be treated as what many believe; however, rehab centers can be a good place for the drug treatment and this proved that the belief was wrong. With careful and proper treatment, coupled with the right counselling, drug addicts can regain their life and have a better and quality ‘second’ life.
