New studies coming out of Italy are showing that more Italians are using cocaine than ever before. The study says that Italian males between the ages of 24 and 35 have increased their cocaine usage over the past three years by 62 percent. Health experts agree that a cocaine rehab treatment center can help aid in the addiction to cocaine.
Another alarming statistic showed that girls between the ages of 14 and 24 have doubled the amount of cocaine they have been using. Many believe that the increase in cocaine usage is due to the prices decreasing all over the country. Experts say that the prices have been dropping for some time now.
Many Italians do not consider many of the softer drugs to be dangerous anymore, such as marijuana. While the prices of the drugs fall, the prices of the treatment centers rise. The report says that treatment centers for such drugs as cocaine take up 10.5 billion euros out of the health care system’s and welfare budget.
