Substance Abuse Stats in Youngstown, OH

“I can throw a rock out this window and hit someone [who has heroin] in this town.”

That’s what an anonymous participant had to say about heroin in Youngstown, Ohio. Availability in the area is a 10 out of 10, making heroin the most common street drug.

There were no less than 7 heroin busts in a 3-month period in Youngstown. Heroin in the area is often cut with baby formula, vitamin B-12, or fentanyl. Any of these can be lethal when injected.

Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

Different kinds of rehab are good for different situations. For instance, outpatient rehab might be the right choice if you:

  • Need to care for your children
  • Can’t stop working
  • Have a good support system and stable home life

However, inpatient rehab is the right choice for many more people. That’s because inpatient rehab gives you tools and skills for coping without drugs. You’ll have an easier time keeping these skills if you learn them in an intensive environment.

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

Rehab should last at least 3 months in most cases. If you’re recovering from opioid abuse, then rehab should last 12 months.

Why is drug abuse treatment so long? Addiction is a lifelong disorder that requires long-term care. The more time you take for rehab, the better your outcome can be.

These numbers are only minimums. If you can stay in treatment for longer than 3 months, then, by all means, do so!

What to Expect at Rehab

At rehab, your care team will help you create a care plan. That care plan may include:

  • Medication-assisted treatment: The use of medication can help lessen cravings for alcohol or opioids.
  • Symptom management: At rehab, your health, safety, and comfort is the priority.
  • Therapy: Dialectical behavior (DBT) and cognitive-behavioral (CBT) are two types of therapy used to treat drug abuse.

It’s common for rehab to include daily check-ins and regular drug tests. These help keep you accountable in treatment.

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

Your care team will tell you if you need to go to detox. It’s very important to attend detox if needed. This can be the difference between relapsing or not.

You’ll need detox if you:

  • Have an addiction
  • Have a physical dependence

Detox helps you get through the difficult parts of withdrawal. Withdrawal happens when you stop using drugs without addressing dependence first.

The signs can include:

  • Agitation
  • Congestion
  • Fever
  • Mood changes
  • Sweating

Very strong cravings are the biggest symptom of withdrawal.

How Long is Detox?

Detox usually lasts 3 to 14 days. In some rare cases, it can last 21 days or longer. That’s mostly in the case of benzodiazepines. It’s more common for detox to last a week or less.

However, it can be hard to tell how long your detox will last. There’s a big range in what’s considered normal based on:

  • The drug you’re stopping
  • Your health and metabolism
  • Your drug use history

It’s most common for treatment centers to offer 5 to 7-day detox.
