The Libertines Front-Man to Enter Rehab
Pete Doherty, the former front-man of the English band The Libertines, has admitted that he will be entering a drug rehab facility at the end of April. Doherty has apparently been battling drug addiction for many years and he is currently using heroin and cocaine enough to need the help of professionals. For many years the rock and roll culture has been entangled with drug and alcohol abuse, and unfortunately this abuse has lead to many deaths and sad downfalls of artists. It’s encouraging to see someone from this culture step up, admit that they have a problem, and seek the treatment that can get them back to a healthy and sober lifestyle.
Drug abuse and addiction is very common in today’s society, and it’s becoming more dangerous than ever with the emergence and abuse of designer drugs, synthetic drugs, and prescription drugs. Many people ask themselves if drug rehab actually works… and the answer is YES. The latest outcome studies conducted by the National Institute of Drug Abuse are very clear. Treatment must be a minimum of three months to be effective and must include active participation in 12 Step recovery support groups.
It’s unfortunately common for people to fall into an alcohol addiction to try and cope with their problems, but substance abuse is never the right way to go, and unfortunately sometimes people learn the hard way. But in order to recover, it’s extremely important to first become conscious of your problem, or make your loved one conscious of their problem, and then find that burning motivation to change the addictive ways. It can be very difficult for a drug addict or an alcoholic and their family to accomplish these things on their own, so that’s where Seabrook House can help.
