You can no longer look at your neighbors, best friends, or even teachers at your child's school and assume that they could never succumb to the temptation of drug and alcohol abuse. Now that prescription pills are readily prescribed for a variety of injuries and illnesses, some of the most unlikely people are suffering the side effects of addiction. Minneapolis has many prestigious suburbs and upscale neighborhoods, and residents of those communities are now the face of addiction in our city.
The Star Tribune analyzed close to 1,400 drug-related arrests that occurred in North Minneapolis in 2014 and found that close to 60 percent of those arrests were served on people residing outside of the northern region. Many were from more affluent areas like Prior Lake and Eagan.
If we could ask friends and family members of those arrested, many would say that they never suspected their loved ones were abusing drugs. Others would say that they knew of the abuse but it took them by surprise. Many of your loved ones may say that your addiction is out of character as well, and you know that it has changed your life substantially.
When you're ready to make another change, this time for the better, we're here to support you from detox and rehab to a successful life of sobriety.
Drugs of Choice for Minneapolis Addicts
While the use of cocaine has dropped in Minneapolis and the Twin Cities region, authorities are reporting an increase in the use of meth, ecstasy, heroin and opiates. Arrests for charges related to these drugs are increasing, and that means all drug abusers in our city are at great risk of picking up criminal charges and spending time in jail. The good news is that you have the option to enter rehab and turn your life around before that happens. Why not start fighting for freedom and personal transformation today?
Knowing When to Travel for Treatment
If you or a loved one is searching for a drug and alcohol rehab center in Minneapolis, one of the key decisions you will need to make is where you want to go to rehab geographically. In other words, do you want to stay in your hometown or travel for treatment?
Many of the treatment programs that can be found in other cities offer amenities that you may not find in your home area. For example, some hotel-like features that are more high-end are often in bigger facilities in rural areas. With a holistic approach to recovery, these facilities have yoga classes, specialty meal options, comfortable living arrangements and more. They cater to those who value and are able to pay for such amenities. For those who are looking for more affordable options, outpatient rehabs or those located within city limits may make more sense.
