But, it should be remembered that kicking off your addiction is not impossible. There are various treatment centers, rehabs and also the residential treatment centers working hard towards helping the addicted get rid of their drug habit and returning to his normal life.  

The residential treatment centers or “RTC” as its known, are said to be the last hope for an individual where he can get rid of this addiction.
