Substance Abuse Stats for the State of New Mexico  

Substance abuse stats from New Mexico may shock you. For the last 20 years, this southwestern state has had the highest drug overdose death rate in the United States.

Other noteworthy facts include that:

Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

When deciding on a rehab in New Mexico, you will be choosing between inpatient and outpatient rehab. For most, inpatient rehab is the right choice.This type of program offers 24/7 stability and care to help you through recovery.

However, many people must continue to care for their families or go to work while they’re in recovery. When a more flexible program is needed, outpatient rehab provides an option.

Remember, patients may start treatment in inpatient rehab, then transition to outpatient rehab.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

The answer to this question is different for everyone. Each rehab in New Mexico is different, and every patient has their own unique needs and situation. In fact, the most effective rehab programs are individually designed to meet your specific needs.

However, studies show that the most effective rehab programs last 90 days or more. Any shorter, and you may place your recovery at risk.

That’s why it’s important to choose the longest rehab that you can manage.

What to Expect at Rehab

Each rehab is different, so there’s not one description that fits all. But the most effective addiction programs include:

  • Prescription medications to treat the symptoms associated with withdrawal. Medications may be indicated for short- or long-term use.
  • Individual therapy to help guide you through the behavioral aspects of recovery, and group therapy to provide social support.

For the best results, choose a rehab program that’s personalized to meet your specific needs.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

How do you know if you need to go to detox? If you’re addicted to drugs, your care team will require that you go to detox. Because it’s the first — and most difficult — step, treatment centers often aren’t equipped to handle this stage of the process.

Your care provider will require detox if you:

  • Have an addiction or dependence
  • Can’t stop using drugs or alcohol on your own

Skipping detox is not an option. It puts your recovery at risk.

How Long is Detox?

Typically, detox takes from three to 21 days, or longer. But no two detoxes are exactly the same.

Patients who use drugs heavily or have used for a long time should expect detox to take longer. Certain drugs, such as stimulants, take longer to detox from, as well.

Detox length also depends on your health and your metabolic rate. Patients who are unhealthy or have a slow metabolism usually take longer to detox.
