Across the nation, prescription drug abuse has outpaced all other drugs combined. A sharp rise in overdose deaths from them has raised serious concerns for government officials. The state of Indiana is fighting prescription drug abuse through a new website. Launched in August 2013, the site serves to educate people in towns like Noblesville, IN, on the dangers stemming from the abuse of narcotic painkillers, stimulants and other types of prescription drugs.
Drug Treatment: What Are My Options?
The treatment of substance abuse problems is not a one-size-fits-all type of treatment. Each person has their own needs, personality and belief system. For this reason, not every model of care will be effective for every substance abuser. The good news is that there are various treatment models available:
- Residential treatment. This involves living at a treatment facility or hospital for one month or longer. During the stay, individuals receive daily care, counseling and supervision.
- Outpatient programs. The individual commits a substantial amount of time each week to treatment. This is usually several hours per day for at least three days each week.
- Counseling. This is usually used alongside other treatments. It’s also used as a form of aftercare support once an individual has finished a residential or outpatient program.
- Sober living. The individual lives with others who are in recovery. It is often used as an aftercare option especially if the individual does not have a stable home environment.
