Eight people were arrested for driving while drunk in Stillwater, OK and surrounding cities in a single Memorial Day weekend. Few people realize that holiday weekends like Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, and other days where drinking is not the focus but often a big part of celebratory events lead to more DUI arrests than New Year’s Eve or St. Patrick’s Day.
But for those who struggle with alcohol abuse and binge drinking, DUI is an almost constant threat. If your Stillwater loved one has been arrested for driving under the influence or if you are concerned that they will end up behind bars as a result of choices made while intoxicated, contact us at the phone number listed above to help them begin treatment as soon as possible.
The Consequences of Untreated Drug and Alcohol Abuse
It’s not just arrest and death that are threats to those who are chronic abusers of drugs and alcohol – though those are both daily and ever-present threats. The consequences of continuing to abuse illicit substances can stack up on a day-to-day basis and undermine the addicted person’s ability to function and enjoy a balanced and contented life. These consequences can include any or all of the following:
- Failed marriage or significant romantic partnership
- Loss of custody of children
- Financial ruin, including bankruptcy and foreclosure
- Job loss and inability to find and/or maintain new employment
Avoid the Consequences of Addiction: Choose Treatment
Though it may not be possible to reverse all the negative results of continued drug abuse, it is possible to avoid worsening the current situation when you choose to turn things around. Treatment is the first step down that road. Call now to begin.
