Ohio State Info

Drug addiction is a serious problem for many Ohio residents. Illicit street drugs as well as prescription pain killers including methadone have high rates of abuse which cause serious consequences in the state. Because of such high rates of substance abuse in Ohio, drug induced deaths in the state are far higher than the national average with nearly 1700 residents losing their lives in 2008 alone. Most of these deaths were due to unintentional drug poisoning, i.e. drug overdose, many of which were caused by prescription medications such as opioids like Vicodin, Percocet and OxyContin. The problem of non-medical use of prescription narcotics is one which spans all age groups in Ohio, with this category of drug being the most preferred among high school seniors. Because the problem of substance abuse is so prevalent and broad, drug rehab programs in Ohio are ready to accept individuals immediately into treatment who need help.

Because there are different types of drug rehab programs available in Ohio, it is important to understand the differences so that a program is chosen which suits one's needs. Outpatient and short term drug rehab programs don't provide an intensive or extensive amount of treatment in the case that someone is trying to overcome a long term problem or serious addiction issue. Most who are under the false impression that short term and outpatient drug rehabs are sufficient treatment options relapse and become even worse off or wind up back in drug rehab. If they enter the right drug rehab from the get go, this won't happen. Choosing the correct drug rehab program if one truly wants to become rehabilitated is based off of a decision which takes into account the length of time needed in treatment and treatment setting. Taking these things into consideration and doing one's research will bring one to the conclusion that inpatient and residential drug rehab programs in Ohio are one's best bet at providing a superior treatment environment and length of stay which will ensure the best results are achieved in drug rehab. After all, individuals who really want to remain abstinent once treatment is complete should completely immerse themselves in drug rehab with no distractions and for as long as needed to achieve successful results.

The length of time individuals are required to remain in treatment can vary greatly from program to program in Ohio. As mentioned before there are short term 30-day drug rehab programs in the state which help the individual get through detox and withdrawal and provide a brief course of therapy and counseling to address other addiction issues. Time has shown that this is often not enough time for treatment counselors to address the issues which could make them relapse when they leave treatment. The longer an individual is given the opportunity to reveal and address issues in their lives which could cause them problems or trigger drug abuse the better off they will be when they re-enter the real world when drug rehab is complete. Their chance of relapsing and getting back into trouble are drastically reduced when put in a proper treatment setting and one which requires a stay of at least 90 days or more. Long term inpatient or residential drug rehab programs are therefore the best option, whose reputations are backed up by successful results. Once treatment is complete, it is even sometimes a good idea for individuals to have an aftercare plan where treatment professionals can provide additional support and monitor their progress outside of treatment.

If someone who is addicted to drugs in Ohio, it can seem as though there is nothing that can be done to help them as family members and friends have to sit back watch them decay and destroy their lives. There are ways of helping convince someone go to drug rehab when all else has failed. One effective route is to hold a drug intervention, which is a meeting with the addicted individual and all those who care about them to help persuade them to choose rehab and life over drugs and addiction. Intervention participants can work with treatment counselors and a professional interventionist who can help guide everyone through the process run the intervention itself to ensure that it is a success. During the intervention itself, participants express to the addicted individual how addiction is so destructive and who it must end to save their life and relationships. Once someone sees all of the truth, love and concern they will usually accept the help and go to drug rehab.

The minute the individual arrives to drug rehab in Ohio they will begin the intensive recovery process which begins with detox. The vast majority of their time spend in treatment will be spent addressing the psychological and emotional ties to addiction, but they will first need to overcome any physical obstacles associated with drug withdrawal and be in a sober frame of mind, i.e. not high on drugs. Within a matter of days an individual can successfully get through detox with the help of treatment counselors and medical professionals as needed. Once the individual is no longer under the influence of drugs or experiencing intense withdrawal symptoms, they can then begin their introspective journey to discover the real reasons they became addicted to drugs and apply tools to resolve these issues and become truly rehabilitated. With a treatment curriculums designed by professional treatment counselors specifically to suit the needs of each individual in drug rehab, individuals can take the time needed to ensure anything which could weigh them down or trigger a relapse is resolved, so that they never wind up in the same situation.

Get all of your questions answered and do whatever is needed to immediately get yourself or someone who know started in drug rehab before it is too late.
