Massimo


Mi chiamo Massimo
e sono entrato al Narconon "Il Falco" nel 2010 a 37 anni, senza più nessuna speranza, con diverse esperienze comunitarie alle spalle.

Non avevo mai sentito parlare del programma Narconon ed ho iniziato questa avventura con scarso entusiasmo. Ho trovato delle persone stupende che mi hanno aiutato durante tutto il mio percorso, hanno saputo farmi capire quanto fosse importante e bello vivere. Grazie a loro e grazie anche alla mia volontà ritrovata ora ho una nuova vita e sono entusiasta di viverla.

When you think of drug and alcohol abuse, the image you get is usually the teenager trying a drug for the first time due to peer pressure, or someone in their 20's going to nightclubs and indulging in excessive alcohol or various party drugs.

The elderly are rarely included in this picture of drug and alcohol abuse. However, recent studies show that the amount of elderly substance abusers is increasing and in some cases in a very large way.

The Increase Of Alcohol Abuse

A substantial proportion of the elderly are drinking at a higher level than is recommended. This is a problem that is increasing but is not being given the proper attention by many healthcare providers. A study of 12,413 Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 or older found that nine percent consumed more alcohol than recommended in health guidelines.

Already, more than one-third of the people over the age of 65 in North America drink alcohol and 10% of them abuse alcohol.

Of 86 percent of elderly patients who end up getting treatment for a history of binge drinking, 76 percent began drinking heavily in mid or late life, according to a Canadian study. Women are even more likely to start heavy drinking later in life.

Drinking at an older age can also have additional negative effects:

· Make existing medical conditions worse.
· Increase the risk of falling
· Reduce the ability to function.
· Negatively interact with medication.

The elderly are much less tolerant to alcohol in general and become intoxicated easier than someone of a younger age having the equivalent amount of alcohol.

Is It Just Alcohol Or Does Substance Abuse Go Farther
Although alcohol remains the main reason that the elderly decide to seek treatment, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) study shows that the number of older Americans seeking out treatment for the use of illicit drugs has increased dramatically.

The SAMHSA study of treatment admissions between 1992 and 2008 found that:
Heroin abuse more than doubled -- from 7.2 percent to 16.0 percent. Cocaine abuse quadrupled -- from 2.9 percent to 11.4 percent. Prescription drug abuse rose from 0.7 percent to 3.5 percent. Marijuana abuse increased from 0.6 percent to 2.9 percent.

While during this same time, admissions for primarily alcoholism dropped from 84.6% to only 59.9% in the over-50 group.

The percentage of older adults seeking treatment for multiple substance abuse disorders nearly tripled from 13.7% to 39.7%, the report said.

These statistics show an even more surprising trend that the main cause for the increase in substance abuse among the elderly is coming from illicit drug abuse and not from alcohol only.

One of the theories being set forth is that as more Baby Boomers move into the over 50 category, the average age of Americans that are seeking drug and alcohol abuse treatment is increasing.

SAMHSA officials said the aging of drug users is a "troubling" issue in terms of healthcare and will need to be addressed as more Baby Boomers begin to reach old age.
