Finding a Solution for Massachusetts

The massive numbers of overdoses is an issue which desperately needs some sort of intervention to begin to reduce these rates.  The solution for this epidemic resides in Massachusetts rehab facilities and addicts receiving addiction treatment.  The staggering numbers of overdoses shows that there are slews of individuals who are not receiving the help they need.  The reasons for this disparity between the amount of people needing help and those actually receiving it could be due to multiple factors, which could include no resources, not knowing where to look for help, or even simply not wanting it.  While many look at illicit drug use simply as an issue of legality, getting these individuals into drug rehab centers would produce a much better result than jail many times and should be a critical point of concentration.  

The dire situation in Massachusetts has reached such an extent that according to an article in The New York Times, a church in Cambridge had to close their bathrooms to the public due to addicts overdosing in them.  A great first step could begin with law enforcement professionals.  Officers in certain cities and districts all across the country have begun to carry naloxone, a drug that can save someone’s life during an overdose.  While this is being done in some cities in Massachusetts, it may need to become a statewide standard.  This way, any officer in Massachusetts encountering a person overdosing from opiates can potentially save their life on the spot.  Once they are stabilized, they can be moved directly into a rehab center in Massachusetts to receive the further treatment needed for their addiction.  

Getting treatment for an addiction is something that should never be deferred, being that addiction is progressive and can end up fatal when left alone. While there are various different types of treatment and treatment facilities all across the country, not all of them are going to be the same.  Some types of programs are going to be better than others.  Since every individual struggling with an addiction has their own particular underlying issues that need to be addressed, it is important that they receive treatment that is tailored to them.  The cookie cutter approach that many facilities use tends to be much less successful in sustaining long term recovery.  When choosing a Massachusetts rehab center, it is important to consider this factor.
