Youth in MS
The data for 2005 National Substance abuse Index (NSAI) shows that the youth of Mississippi is in serious danger of substance abuse. According to the index, among 2321 alcohol abused in 2005 6.4% are within the age group of 12 to 30. Many of them are high school students who are affected most by the addiction of all kinds. 10.3% of the substance abused patients belong to this age group and this has increased in the recent years. Without proper measure this can increase even more and a whole generation would be at risk. No matter what kind of addiction it is, treatment is important and that is possible through the rehab centers that specialize in addiction treatment.
The governing authority of the Mississippi is concerned about the problem and they feel that more emphasis should be given on treatment. At least, the family and friend of the addicts should come forward and help them locate the rehab center closest to their home.
