The film starring Nicholas Cage, Leaving Las Vegas, about a chronic alcoholic who makes a decision to drink himself to death is a lasting impression about Las Vegas, Nevada and the futility of alcohol treatment. I’m not leaving Las Vegas, in fact I am going to Las Vegas! Going to Las Vegas to assist an individual with a private home detox, he has made a serious decision to change their life.
Las Vegas is a land of dreams, opportunities, and temptations. More so than many communities in the United States. Temptations, including drugs and alcohol, often become the mainstream rather than the occasional use or occasional binge. Vigilance takes on new meaning when an alcoholic or drug dependent person exposes themselves to the elements of this city.
