Albion, MI – Narconon Freedom Center, an alcohol and drug rehab facility that also provides community drug prevention education, actively supports Governor Snyder’s efforts to take back Michigan cities overwhelmed by unemployment, drugs and crime.

Since the fortunes of Detroit and the auto industry began to turn in the late 1970s, the media has carried stories of the deterioration of Michigan communities. Towns and cities began to empty as the unemployed moved to other cities to find work.

On March 7, 2012, Governor Rick Snyder announced his intention to take back Michigan cities from the desolation that has spread through many communities, listing Detroit, Flint, Pontiac and Saginaw as top priorities.

Alcohol and drug addiction have followed the increase in unemployment and crime. Narconon Freedom Center in Albion, Michigan, is dedicated to the elimination of addiction and daily works to play an important role in supporting Governor Snyder’s program.

The National Survey on Drug Use and Health reports that nearly 800,000 of Michigan’s nine million residents are addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Figures on treatment admissions from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration show that in 2009, 64,428 Michigan citizens successfully found addiction treatment. This number constitutes only about eight percent of those who needed treatment.

A disproportionately large number of these people were under 21 years of age: Four out of ten being treated for marijuana addiction. Five and a half percent of those treated for crack cocaine addiction. Nearly eight percent of those treated for heroin addiction.

These details further illustrate Michigan’s need for effective drug rehab, among many other social changes, if it is to achieve a faster recovery.

“We are saddened that only about 8% of the 800,000 Michigan residents addicted to drugs or alcohol have found successful addiction treatment and fully support Governor Snyder’s efforts to reinvent Michigan.  As part of our support, we are at this very moment renovating part of our facility to accommodate more admissions.  Additionally, we offering free community drug prevention education that is proven to help teens understand the truth about drugs and to make up their own minds not to use,” says Brian Kuehne, Executive Director of Narconon Freedom Center.
