Louisiana Drug Rehab Centers

The effects of drug addiction can be seen all across the nation, and it affects people of all demographics.  One of the fastest spreading epidemics that has crossed our nation over the past decade is addiction to opioids.  More and more people everyday are becoming hooked on opiate painkillers.  These types of drugs are prescribed much more frequently and for longer periods than ever before.  There are many different statistics that have borne out how many people are using these medications.  It can really be seen in Louisiana, where the amount of opioid prescriptions outnumber the number of residents, according to an article from 4WWL.  The article states, “The state has the sixth highest prescription-per-capita rate at 1.03 pain-killer prescriptions written per Louisiana resident in 2015.”

The increasing amount of prescriptions brings increased amounts of addiction.  While many people will use their medications as directed, others may find themselves quickly addicted after being prescribed them for pain.  Another sad truth is that many of these people will move on to using heroin simply due to it’s lower cost and wider availability.

Drug Exposed Children Born in Louisiana

An unfortunate reality is that many pregnant women are struggling with addiction in Louisiana as well.  NOLA reports that according to the Department of Child and Family Services, the amount of infants born exposed to drugs or alcohol has tripled since 2008, and is in part due to increased heroin and painkiller use from pregnant women.  NOLA states, “In 2008, the department reported 569 valid allegations of babies born with detectable amounts of drugs or alcohol in their systems. By 2015, the number of valid cases had climbed to 1,512.”  Addicted pregnant women are often shunned and shamed by society, and are treated like scum of the earth often times.  But these women need help just as much as any other addict.  Yes, they have another life in their care, but this is the exact reason that they need to be helped as soon as possible, rather than reproved.  These women are struggling, and need to be gotten into Louisiana drug rehab centers for them to be able to recover for themselves and their child.  

When You Need a Helping Hand to Overcome Addiction

Struggling with an addiction can be like fighting a war within yourself.  There are many people that want to get off of drugs or alcohol, but have trouble overcoming their addiction.  This can be very despairing, but sometimes a person just needs to reach out for help.  While there are many who have gotten clean on their own, this does not work for everyone.  A comprehensive Louisiana rehab center can be the key to getting clean for many people.  Some may feel ashamed that they have to attend rehab for their addiction, but going into treatment is actually an extremely courageous thing to do.  There are many Louisiana drug rehab centers out there that can help you or your loved one to achieve long term sobriety.
