To the Editor,

I would like to know why no one writes about all the programs 
available for those people who have drug related problems, as well as 
other places that offer help.

If there are no organizations or support programs other than detox, 
there should be.

Addiction is growing rapid in Canada.

As stressful as life gets, we all need to deal with it and move on to 
the next issue.

That's where addiction hurts these people, because they can't cope 
with everyday issues and need to be taught coping skills so they can 
move forward instead of staying stagnant or moving backwards.

I would like to see a good rehabilitation program set up, with a 
screening process so the people who really want to get clean can get 
the help they need.
