Substance Abuse Stats in Clarksburg, WV

Drug abuse is dropping across much of West Virginia. But in Clarksburg, substance abuse is trending upward

The problem is especially bad with prescription opioids. The local prescribing rate is higher than the national average. 

A 2016 report found that

  • Harrison County doctors prescribed opioids 1,194 times per 1,000 patients… more than enough for everyone in the county to have their own script!
  • The rate of drug overdose death was 38.0 per 100,000 
  • The rate of opioid overdose death was 26.3 per 100,000 

Choosing Between an Outpatient and Inpatient Rehab

When you’re looking for rehab options in West Virginia, your first task is to choose between outpatient and inpatient. 

Both types of rehab are useful in different situations. For instance, outpatient rehab is a great option if you need to keep going to school or work. Not everyone can put their life on pause to attend rehab, but that’s not a reason to skip treatment. 

Inpatient rehab is the gold standard for drug abuse treatment. It offers you a 24/7 intensive experience so you can recover faster. 

How Long Can Treatment at a Rehab Last?

It’s common for rehab to last 3 months or longer. In fact, the National Institute on Drug Abuse says that 90 days is the shortest period of rehab that works. 

That’s because substance abuse disorder is a chronic disease. It affects your body and behavior in ways that aren’t easy to reverse. Recovery takes time, plain and simple. 

Remember, 90 days is only a guideline. You should go to rehab for the longest time period possible. 

What to Expect at Rehab

Not sure what happens at rehab? That’s because it’s different for everyone. The best treatment centers build a new treatment plan for each client. You have unique needs as a client!

Your rehab experience may include: 

  • Daily check-ins
  • Activities
  • Individual or group therapy
  • Medication
  • Motivational interviewing

A combination of evidence-based treatments and therapeutic activities help you recover in comfort. 

If you’re attending outpatient treatment, then you should expect regular drug tests. This may not be part of your experience during inpatient. 

When Would You Need to Go to Detox?

You’ll need to go to detox if you have an addiction to any drug. The signs of addiction include: 

  • Cravings when you can’t get the drug of choice
  • Inability to stop using drugs
  • Bailing on relationships and responsibilities for drugs
  • Getting into legal or money trouble over drugs

Additionally, there are some drugs that are harder to quit than others. If your substance use disorder involves alcohol, opioids, or benzos, then you should go to detox. 

How Long is Detox?

The length of detox depends on: 

  • The drug in question
  • Your drug use history, including whether you use multiple substances
  • Your health history, including kidney or liver disease and prescriptions you take

If you have a history of relapse, your care team may take that into account as well. When you’re more prone to relapse, you may need a longer detox. 

It’s common for detox to last 3 to 5 days, but in some cases it can last up to 2 or 3 weeks.
