Substance abuse is a huge issue across the United States. And Washington is no exception to that.
When you look at the national statistics for drug and alcohol abuse, Washington state is just above the national average of 14.6 deaths related to drug use. In 2013, a total of 46,471 people in the United States died of drug-related causes.
While it may seem daunting and impossible to fix this problem on a national level, you can start right here at home in Prosser.
And the first step to lowering these statistics and stopping this epidemic is by providing resources and help to those suffering from addiction. Within the last year, more than 90% of people who are dependent upon alcohol or drugs in Washington at any given time have not received treatment. By treating those people in Prosser, we can start the long road to beating the substance abuse epidemic in the United States.
So, what drug and alcohol abuse resources and treatment facilities are near Prosser?
Detox and rehab treatment facilities offer spaces for patients to get healthy and focus solely on recovering from their addiction. Detox is the process which rids the body of the addictive substance, which helps fight physical addiction.
Rehab treatment facilities pick up where detox leaves off. In rehab, patients learn how to cope with the mental struggles of addiction through therapy and addiction education. Patients can retrain their brain to live once again without the addictive substance, which helps prevent relapse.
Recovery meetings like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are free tools open to the public that happen at least once a week. Recovering addicts gather together with a leader who walks them through a 12-step program to help combat addiction and retrain their brains to live without drugs or alcohol. These meetings also provide a strong community of other recovering addicts that can connect with one another and hold each other accountable.
