Substance Abuse Stats in Sacramento, CA

Wondering how sunny Sacramento compares in terms of substance abuse stats? The area is known for having higher rates of drug abuse than California overall. 6% of Californians met the criteria for substance abuse disorder in 2018.

From a 2018 report, substance abuse stats in Sacramento include:

  • Sacramento had the seventh-highest rate of emergency room visits for alcohol and drug-related diagnoses
  • The area also had the seventh-highest rate of beds filled in residential treatment

Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

Not sure whether outpatient or inpatient is the right choice? Don’t worry, ask your care team. They can help you choose the drug rehab in Sacramento that’s right for you.

Outpatient drug rehab gives you the opportunity to work and take care of your family while you recover. This can help alleviate a lot of the stress associated with recovery.

Inpatient drug rehab is the best choice if you can manage it. It offers you an intensive environment where you can focus on getting better with no distractions.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

Not sure how long you should plan to be in rehab?

No two Rehabs in Sacramento are exactly alike. Still, many treatment centers offer a variety of rehab lengths from 30 to 90 days and beyond. Opioid treatment can last a year or longer!

It’s best to commit to the longest treatment stay you can. Research shows that 90 days is the shortest rehab length that works. When you leave rehab early, you’re putting yourself at risk for relapse.

What to Expect at Rehab

You should expect your rehab experience to keep you busy! If you’re doing residential rehab, you’re likely to spend your whole day moving from one activity to the next.

There’s a reason for that. These activities are focused on getting you in the right mindset for recovery. 

They include: 

  • 1:1 support
  • Animal therapy
  • Creative therapy
  • Support groups
  • Talk therapy

Your care team will help you choose the treatments and therapies that are right for you.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

You should go to detox if you’re addicted or dependent on drugs. You’re dependent on drugs if you have withdrawal symptoms when you stop using them.

Signs you’re experiencing withdrawal include:

  • Cravings
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Mood changes
  • Muscle pain
  • Nausea

Skipping detox and going straight to rehab is a bad idea. It puts you at risk for relapse. Most treatment centers aren’t cut out to handle detox. Your care team will tell you if you need to go to detox.

How Long is Detox?

The length of detox is different for everyone. It depends on your health and metabolism, as well as your drug use history.

Many detox facilities offer detox programs that last anywhere from three days to 21 days or more.

Deciding the right length of detox is complicated. You should leave it up to your care provider. They’ll take a detailed history and help you find a detox program that sets you up for success.
