There are many individuals struggling with drug and alcohol abuse and Missouri, and without help many individuals in the state will experience consequences and even lose their life to substance abuse. Alcohol abuse and binge drinking is the biggest substance abuse problems in the state, but illicit drugs are also a major concern. One of the reasons substance abuse is such a serious threat to residents is because the rate of deaths involving drugs in Missouri has been higher than the national average for the last several years. It is also directly linked to criminal activity of course, and it is estimated that around 85% of parolees in the state are substance dependent. This comes as no surprise, because many of the criminal activity, of course, is perpetuated in an effort to get high.
It is very evident that providing Missouri residents with effective treatment options is crucial, and thankfully there are options for anyone needing help with any type of substance abuse problem no matter how severe. If a resident has private health insurance, they can choose from a number of different drug rehab programs in Missouri which have the highest success rates. These are inpatient programs and residential facilities which provide either short term treatment (30 days or less) or long term programs which provide several months of treatment. 30-day programs in Missouri may send clients home prematurely, before they have had enough time to acclimate physically and psychologically to a new drug free life, so they may be prone to relapse. The benefit of long-term treatment is that clients not only have the time to physically readjust and overcome cravings, but also do what it takes to readjust mentally and develop coping skills that will help them remain drug free for a lifetime. Speak with a treatment counselor at a long-term inpatient or residential drug rehab facility in Missouri to learn about all of the benefits of such treatment.
