Washington Drug Rehab Centers

The abuse of opiates can have an extremely wide range of disastrous effects upon the individual.  While it may tend to do the most concentrated damage to the user, its effects can raise hell for others, such as a child in utero.  When a child is in their mother’s womb, they are experiencing and taking in all of the substances that the mother is consuming, such as opiates.  When this happens to a child, their bodies can develop a dependency as well, which can cause them to go through withdrawal symptoms after birth.

A child going through withdrawal symptoms when born is a condition that is called Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.  The amount of occurrences of this has been increasing rapidly in Washington.  In fact, according to a graph of data from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shown in an ABC10 article, the amount of babies born with neonatal abstinence syndrome has had steady gains over the years and reached about 7.5 thousand in 2013.  This has lead Washington rehab centers to try to get pregnant mothers treatment as soon as possible to avoid this. 

An Epidemic of Huge Proportions

While children being born addicted to opiates is already one of the worst conditions that could arise, the situation is obviously not in the best state for adult addicts either.  Washington’s problem with opiates has become a gigantic epidemic.  It has reached such an extent that an article from the Seattle Times states, “In Washington state and across the nation, overdoses have surpassed traffic crashes as the No. 1 cause of accidental death. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls it an epidemic, noting that overdoses killed more Americans in 2014 than in any other year on record.”  This has officials in Washington scrambling in an attempt to find any solution to help curb the statistics. 

The article further states that there is a proposal for a safe injection site being created in Seattle.  A safe injection site is where individuals using these types of opiates or other drugs intravenously can go to be able to safely inject them while under the supervision of medical staff.  While this is a pure hearted attempt to keep individuals who are using the drugs more safe, the reality is that it is in a way enabling them.  It may help to ease the amount of overdoses within the city or state being that a vigilant eye can be kept upon these people while they are using, but a more concerted effort needs to be made to get these struggling addicts into Washington drug rehab centers. 

Finding the proper treatment center can sometimes be a difficult proposition.  Since every individual needs their particular underlying issues behind their addiction addressed, a one size fits all mentality falls short when treating addiction.  This type of mentality is the downfall of many treatment centers and their success.  There are Washington rehab centers that will customize a program that is specific to the person so that it does address their individual needs, and these tend to have much higher success rates.
