Mississippi, like many other locations in the United States, has been hit hard by substance abuse and the opioid epidemic.
- 13 people of every 100,000 in Lee County died from overdose in 2016.1
- In 2016 in Mississippi, at least 211 people died from substance overdose, the highest number in the history of the state.2
For people living in active addiction, the risks are high, even more so than they were several years ago, with the introduction of unusually potent opioids such as fentanyl and carfentanil in street and counterfeit prescription drugs. Knowing these risks, there is no better time than now to get help for addiction. Luckily, there is a multitude of options for treatment, and you can begin sorting through them in our easy-to-use directory.
There are numerous programs offering varying therapy types, features, and amenities, such as:
- Safe medical detoxification within the facility.
- Care for expecting mothers.
- Alternative therapies, such as yoga, meditation, music therapy, art therapy, or equine therapy.
- Family visitation.
- Trips offsite, for example, to recovery meetings.
- Activities geared toward young adults.
- Games and fitness equipment/classes.
- Wellness and life skills classes.
Spend a bit of time thinking about what features are most important to you before reaching out to potential facilities. Also, consider whether you can realistically put all of your focus into your treatment if you stay near home. Sometimes, going away to another city and removing yourself from your environmental triggers is crucial to putting all of your focus on your recovery. It can also help to choose a program where the locale is beautiful and inspiring. Some programs are situated in serene locations such as in the woods or near the beach and include activities that connect you to nature, which many people find rejuvenating. If you want to speak to someone confidentially today about how to find the right program for yourself or someone you love, give us a call—we are available 24/7 and ready to help you take your first step on a healthier path.
