Substance Abuse Stats in Cleveland, OH

Cocaine is the fastest-rising substance in Cleveland, taking up 2 spots in the city’s top 5.

The most-abused drugs in Cleveland are:

  • Alcohol
  • Crack cocaine
  • Powdered cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Prescription opioids

Heroin and other opioids may be at the bottom of the list. Still, you can’t underestimate them!

A focus group said that heroin dealers go to 12 Step meetings in Cleveland to try to recruit new customers. That shocking fact shows that the opioid epidemic is far from over in Cleveland!

Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient and outpatient rehab are both effective treatment options. The right one for you depends on factors such as your: 

  • Stability
  • Support system
  • History of relapse
  • Substance abuse history

Many people do best with inpatient rehab. This treatment option includes 24/7 care and access to professionals.

If you’re worried that life may get in the way of rehab, then outpatient rehab could be an option for you. This kind of rehab lets you live at home. You can go to work and attend treatment on your own time.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

The length of rehab treatment depends on your history. It can be different for everyone. Still, 3 months is the shortest time you should go to rehab.

Going to rehab for less than 90 days puts you at risk for relapse. Substance abuse disorder is a lifelong disease. It takes time and commitment to learn to control it.

The exact length of your treatment depends on:

  • Your drug abuse history
  • Your relapse history
  • Your medical history, including prescriptions you take
  • Your mental health history

What to Expect at Rehab

At rehab, you should expect a personalized experience. Your rehab plan will be different from the next client’s.

Some effective rehab treatments include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy: This kind of therapy is called CBT. It helps you learn how your thoughts affect your addiction.
  • Medication-assisted treatment: MAT can be a great tool in fighting some types of substance use disorders.
  • Support groups: Whether you choose 12 Step, Narcotics Anonymous, or another group, social support is a powerful tool.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

You should go to detox if you’re dependent on any drug. If you’re dependent, then you’ll have withdrawal when you stop using drugs.

The withdrawal symptoms can include:

  • Agitation
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Cravings
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting and diarrhea

These are only a few of the many symptoms. Others can include sweating, fever, muscle pain, and even seizures.

A detox center can help you manage these symptoms. You’re at risk of relapse when you try to detox alone.

How Long is Detox?

Detox can be as short as 3 days or as long as 21 days! It varies depending on factors such as:

  • The drugs you’re stopping
  • Your drug use history
  • Your prescription drug use history
  • Your health, metabolism, and lifestyle

Your detox team will help you understand how long your detox should last. It’s important for detox to last long enough. Ending detox too early increases your risk of relapse.
