Meridian Alcohol and Drug Rehab Listings
In 2012, 90 percent of all overdose deaths in Mississippi were related to prescription medications. Law enforcement is combatting this problem through the use of drug drop-off programs. A permanent drop box was installed in July 2013 in the Meridian, MS, branch of the Mississippi Highway Patrol. Medications that are collected are then safely destroyed by law enforcement. These drop box programs are one way to make people aware of the problem of prescription drug abuse and encourage them to clean out their medicine cabinets.
Stages of Recovery
Recovering from substance abuse is a process that can take months or even years. During this process, an individual will experience victories as well as failures. The important thing for the individual and their loved ones to remember is that success comes in stages. The four main stages of recovery from substance abuse are listed below:
- Treatment initiation: Being enrolled in treatment for a substance abuse problem, either voluntarily or involuntarily
- Early abstinence: Being deprived of your substance of choice and learning skills to deal first with withdrawal and, in later stages, ongoing cravings
- Maintaining abstinence: After making some progress, working to maintain sobriety and avoid relapse
- Advanced recovery: Using all you’ve learned in the earlier stages of treatment to build an enjoyable life without drugs or alcohol
