Pat Moore Foundation | Medical Detox & Treatment Gift

“Federal traffic statistics offer sobering reminder of the need for medical detox and addiction treatment over the holidays.”

Costa Mesa, CA — December 16, 2010 — Pat Moore Foundation, the nationally recognized medical detox and rehabilitation treatment facility located in Costa Mesa, California, is offering thirty days of addiction treatment for as low as eight thousand dollars though the month of December.

“The holidays are a stressful time for most people with substance abuse issues,” says Phil Allen, CEO of Pat Moore Foundation. “Expectations are set, mostly within ourselves, and sometimes we come up short. The expectations are at a level that cannot be reached. It doesn’t matter if you’re still actively using or have a number of sober years behind you, the holidays can be tough. It’s easy to succumb to triggers, relapse and give in to our addiction. That’s one of the reasons we are offering this gift of a lower cost medical detox and addiction treatment.”

On average, there are thirty-six deaths that occur per day on America’s roads as a result of an alcohol or other drug impaired drivers. This number increases to 45 per day during Christmas time and nearly 55 per day over the New Year’s holiday. Additional reports from SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, concluded that 13.2 percent of persons aged 16 or older, which is 30.6 million people, drove under the influence of alcohol and 4.3 percent (10.1 million people) drove under the influence of illicit drugs.

Researchers discovered that Americans are more often likely to die on Christmas Day, the day after Christmas, and on New Year’s Day than any other day of the year. Fifty-three million death certificates were studied and there were significant increases of cardiac and non-cardiac deaths during these holidays.

Just this past Thanksgiving, the California Highway Patrol reported an increase in the number of drunk driving arrests. The numbers show that statewide there were just over 1,400 DUI arrests between Wednesday evening and Sunday morning. It can be expected that heavy saturation patrols will be in full force over the upcoming weeks.

For more than twenty-five years, Pat Moore Foundation has been empowering men and women who struggle with substance abuse and addiction. If you would like more information regarding their “Gift to You,” and addiction treatment during this holiday season, call Katy Alexander at 888.426.6086.
