Substance Abuse Stats in Beckley, WV

Beckley is known for being the cheapest place to live in America—but that low living cost comes at a high price. 

In 2019, Raleigh County officials declared 2019 the area’s first Overdose Awareness Day. 

Most overdoses in Raleigh County are the result of opioids. Alcohol is a big problem in the community, too. 

A 2016 report found that

  • 7.5% of local adults binge drink
  • 33% have used alcohol in the past month 
  • 4.5% needed treatment for alcohol and didn’t get it

Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

It’s most common to start with inpatient rehab. That’s because inpatient rehab gives you access to a completely treatment-focused environment. 

This extra focus makes it easier to learn the coping strategies that you’ll need in recovery. If you can manage it, you should choose inpatient. 

Outpatient rehab is a good choice for people who need some extra flexibility. If you need to attend work or school while going to rehab, outpatient makes it easy for that to happen. 

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

It’s common for rehab to last 90 days or more. In fact, 3 months is the shortest recommended length of rehab. 

That’s because substance abuse disorder is a chronic illness. You won’t learn to manage it overnight. The longer you can spend in rehab, the better your recovery will be. 

If you’re recovering from opioid use, then 12 months is the shortest stay you should consider. Opioid use causes change in your brain’s pathways and it takes time to rewire them. 

What to Expect at Rehab

No two rehab stays are the same, but the best treatment centers use evidence-based treatments.

An evidence-based treatment has been scientifically proven to bring results. Some examples of evidence-based treatments include: 

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Medication-assisted treatment

In addition to treatment, you’ll have access to therapeutic activities such as art and yoga. These provide a healthy emotional outlet while you recover. 

Daily appointments, group therapy, and regular drug tests may be part of your rehab experience. 

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

You’ll need to go to detox if you have a substance abuse disorder (SUD). Talk to your care team if you think you may need detox. 

The signs that you have an SUD and need detox include: 

  • Wanting to stop using drugs, but failing
  • Hurting your relationships to use drugs
  • Neglecting work or school to use drugs
  • Getting into financial trouble over drugs

Most of all, you should go to detox if you have a history of relapse. Detox gets you through the hardest parts of withdrawal.

How Long is Detox?

It’s typical for detox to last 3 to 7 days. However, in some cases it can last 10, 14, or even 21 days. 

The length of detox is dependent on: 

  • The drug that you’re stopping
  • Whether you’re stopping multiple drugs
  • Your relapse history
  • Your health history, including prescriptions you take

Detox is different for each person. Still, your care team can make an accurate guess based on your history.
