Drug abuse and addiction affects thousands of families in Utah on a daily basis. The Cache Valley Daily reported that prescription drug addiction claimed 344 lives in the state in 2014. This is more than any other drugs combined. If you live in Lawrence or the surrounding area, and you or a family member is addicted to prescription medication, we want to get you immediate help. We will find you the right inpatient treatment center suited to your individual needs. This disease can be arrested. Seeking treatment is the first step in your journey of recovery.
There are many benefits in getting clean at a treatment center. First, you are medically detoxed. Physical withdrawal symptoms are negated with medication. When the detox is finished, you are educated on the disease model of addiction. Genetic predisposition and environmental factors led to your drug abuse. It is not your fault you became addicted, but it is your responsibility to recover. Individual therapy allows you to open up to an experienced counselor. This is the most effective way to begin sobriety.
Heroin use is also rising in the state. The Utah Department of Health reports that 446 Utahns died as a result of heroin abuse between 2008 and 2012. These numbers are startling. The disease of addiction is chronic, progressive, and ultimately fatal if untreated. There is a saying in the recovery community: “jails, institutions, and death.” There is no need to fall victim to this illness. Allow us to help you achieve long-term sobriety. We guarantee you will not be disappointed with the results.
If you want to get clean and don’t know how, we have the answer for you. Let us get you into treatment. Today, you can make a decision that will transform your life. Recovery is a gift that is freely given. All you have to do is reach out your hand.
Should You Travel for Treatment?
For many of those addicted to drugs or alcohol, your first course of action will be in deciding geographically where you want to attend treatment. While those who are interested in outpatient care will be best served by attending a treatment center in their hometown, those who are concerned about privacy or who need to make special arrangements for their care may be interested in going to surrounding cities and traveling for treatment.
For example, you may prefer a faith-based approach to recovery that matches your religious choices. In other situations, your choice of drug and alcohol rehab center may be solely based on how holistic the center’s approach to recovery is. In either of these cases, travel may be necessary in order to fulfill your personal requirements for treatment. We can help you make the decision on whether or not travel for treatment will be the right choice for you or your loved one.
