Substance Abuse Stats in Cincinnati, OH

Wondering what the drug abuse scene is like in Cincinnati? Heroin and crack cocaine are as common as ever in this Ohio city.

The top drugs abused in Cincinnati include:

  • Crack cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Cannabis
  • Methamphetamine
  • Powdered cocaine
  • Prescription stimulants

Prescription opioids have been less used in Cincinnati lately. That’s likely because of crackdowns on prescriptions.

Fake drugs and cutting agents remain a threat in Cincinnati. A focus group reports that most street Xanax is fake. Most heroin is cut with caffeine, allergy medicine, or even deadly fentanyl.

Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

Which kind of rehab is right for your case? Inpatient and outpatient each have their own benefits, including:

  • Inpatient rehab offers 24/7 care and stability for people who need it. That includes people with complicated substance abuse histories.
  • Outpatient rehab lets you go to treatment while you’re working and living at home.

If you need to work while going to treatment, then outpatient rehab could be a good option for you. However, inpatient rehab is the best choice for most clients.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

Rehab should last at least 90 days. When rehab lasts less than 3 months, your risk of relapse increases.

That doesn’t mean you should limit your stay to 90 days! The longer you attend rehab, the better your outcome could be.

Addiction is a chronic disease that requires lifelong treatment. Some clients attend outpatient for years!

Others benefit from a single inpatient stay. Still others do best with multiple inpatient stays. The right answer depends on your needs.

What to Expect at Rehab

Your rehab experience will be unique. The best treatment centers build your treatment plan to your needs. It may include:

  • Activity-based therapy, such as horse therapy or trauma-sensitive yoga
  • Family therapy, which helps you and your support system work together through your addiction
  • Talk therapy, which can help you work through hard situations without using drugs

If you have a dual diagnosis such as depression, then your rehab treatment will address that problem, too.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

You’ll need to go to detox if you have an addiction. If you’re dependent on a substance, then you’ll have withdrawal when you stop using it.

Withdrawal symptoms can be severe. They include:

  • Agitation
  • Insomnia
  • Mood changes
  • Muscle cramps
  • Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Seizures
  • Sweating

The symptoms can vary depending on the drug you’re stopping and how long you’ve used it. Going to detox can help keep these symptoms under control.

How Long is Detox?

The length of detox ranges from 3 to 21 days. That’s a big range, but no two detoxes are alike!

The factors affecting your detox include:

  • Your drug use history
  • Your health, including any history of liver disease
  • Your history of relapse, if any

The biggest factor is the type of drug you’re stopping. For instance, alcohol detox can be over in 3 to 7 days, but stimulant detox can take weeks sometimes.
