In 2017, the President declared a national emergency due to the widespread addiction to Opioids. Alabama was no exception. The state has been fighting an uphill battle with prescription drugs and a steady stream of cartel contributions. In Jefferson County alone, over 140 overdose deaths were reported in 2014. This number has gone up steadily each year, proving an even greater need for available resources. Many people who are suffering from an addiction may want help, but don’t understand the options that are open to them.
Inpatient TreatmentInpatient facilities offer short-term housing for the duration of the rehab program. This is often the next step after an intervention by family pleading with them to get help. An inpatient facility treats severe addictions by removing the person from the environment where they bought and used illegal substances. It also surrounds them with a safe place to go through detox—which can include painful withdrawal symptoms. Those suffering from addiction will often transition to a halfway house or to an outpatient program after completing inpatient treatment. Finding all of this in one area can be challenging in Alabama
Outpatient TreatmentOutpatient treatment programs can offer a more flexible schedule for those who have a reasonable chance of succeeding without inpatient supervision. Outpatient centers utilize a combination of medication, personal, group, and behavioral therapies to aggressively achieve and maintain sobriety. Many counties in Alabama live below the poverty level, and outpatient treatment allows people to continue going to work while seeking sobriety. For people who suffer from addictions or co-occurring mental health disorders, outpatient treatment may not be the best option.
Asking for HelpThe first step towards sobriety is realizing that you have a problem. The next step is asking for help. Finding resources is as simple as an online search or a phone call to your family physician. Alabama has a number of excellent inpatient and outpatient treatment programs that can give you the tools to start fighting. People suffering from addiction face a long road to recovery. Fortunately, there’s hope: life after addiction exists, and more effective treatment facilities are making it possible.
