Massachusetts is a state rich in both history and tradition. The state is home to high quality educational institutions like M.I.T. and Harvard while also maintaining economic diversity. Unfortunately, far too many Massachusetts residents have recently been affected by the increased availability of extremely addictive substances such as Oxycontin and heroin.
In 2013, Massachusetts scored pretty well when it came to a statistical review of drug-related deaths across the nation. They ranked #32 with 11 fatalities for every 100,000 residents. While they also did well (9 out of 10) for prevention efforts, there is a more serious issue brewing under the surface. Based on a report released by the Bureau of Substance Abuse Service, there was a substantial increase in the overall percentage of heroin-related rehab admissions over total admissions.
In 2012, the percentage was 43.4%, which is slightly above the norm. In 2013 and 2014, the percentage reached all-time highs at 48.7% and 53.1% respectively. Without access to a reputable Massachusetts MA opiate addiction treatment center or other alternative, this issue could soon reach epidemic levels.
Due to the convenience factor, many Massachusetts addicts elect to stay close to home and receive treatment at a Massachusetts MA opiate addiction treatment center. While that certainly seems to make sense, there may be a far better option worth considering. In North Florida, many rehab facilities rank among the best in the nation. The chance to receive treatment from a professional facility like Beaches Recovery has certain distinct advantages. First, the quality of treatment is first-class. Second, we offer successful treatment alternatives like intensive outpatient (IOP) and partial hospitalization (PHP) plans, and finally, out-of-state patients can get treated in a warm and comfortable environment away from the temptations at home.
While many experts would acknowledge the advantages of going out-of-state for treatment, getting any kind of rehab treatment should be the first concern. Without a stint in rehab, addicts have very little chance of ever successfully recovering from their addictions. Opiate users are a particularly high risk group due to the addictive nature and effects of these drugs. By receiving treatment in a professional rehab facility like Beaches Recovery, they can exponentially increase the likelihood of a complete recovery.
No matter how advanced your addiction has become, it’s never too late to get help. By taking the necessary step of admitting you’re an addict and need help, you make it possible for a reputable rehab center like Beaches Recovery to help set you firmly on the path of recovery.
