More Info About Rehabs in Nevada
Lawmakers in Nevada are changing their approach to prevention, treatment, and recovery in an effort to save lives. New policies like the Controlled Substance Abuse Prevention Act seek to curb opioid abuse, by training medical professionals and changing prescribing protocols. Pharmacies like CVS and Walgreens are increasing access to the overdose-reversing drug naloxone. The state is also part of a national pilot program, turning vacant USDA properties in rural areas into transitional housing for people in recovery.
These innovative approaches are creating an atmosphere of genuine care and concern and eliminating some of the harmful stigmas surrounding addiction. All of this means greater access to care for those most in need. There are a variety of rehabs in Nevada, and treatment can help you or your loved one break free from the cycle of substance abuse. Call us today and we can connect you with a quality facility: 1-866-317-7050.
- More than 200,000 Nevadans are abusing or dependent upon drugs and/or alcohol each year.
- Only 5% of the people in need of treatment for alcohol use receive it, while over 14% of those in need of drug treatment receive treatment services.
- In 2015, more than 1 in every people admitted to treatment in Nevada reported alcohol as their primary substance of abuse.
- Amphetamines were close behind alcohol as a common substance of abuse that year, followed by heroin, and then marijuana.

With over 75 substance abuse treatment facilities to choose from in Nevada, it’s important to do your research. Every individual is different, with a unique set of underlying factors that contribute to substance abuse. For this reason, a good treatment plan is specially designed for each person.
Nevada’s rehabs offer a wide variety of special groups to meet a diverse set of needs. There are programs tailored to people with co-occurring mental disorders, often called dual diagnosis rehabs, which provide mental health services alongside substance abuse treatment. Some programs are tailored to criminal justice and DUI clients, programs for survivors of abuse and domestic violence, as well as gender-specific programs.
Explore your options. Consider what kinds of programs, as well as which treatment setting, might be most beneficial to you or your loved one. There is a large majority of outpatient treatment facilities in Nevada, which offer scheduled, daytime treatment services. Outpatient is a more flexible environment, that still allows clients to maintain their work and family lives, and it’s often a more affordable option.
Many people also attend outpatient treatment to help them strengthen their recovery after a stay in an inpatient treatment facility. At an inpatient rehab, clients are residents of the facility and stay there for an extended period of time. Many people are hesitant about inpatient because it requires a separation from their home environment, but this is often an important step in the recovery process.
Residential treatment is often linked to better treatment outcomes. In some cases, this is because of a greater length of time dedicated to treatment activities and access to more intensive care. In other cases, residential treatment allows clients to experience living sober in a safe, controlled environment, so they’re better prepared for life after discharge.
One crucial factor that often discourages people from seeking treatment is the cost. As you find rehabs in Nevada that interest you, call to ask about their payment options. Some accept certain private health insurance plans, many accept Medicaid, and over half will provide treatment at no charge for clients who cannot pay. If you have any questions about rehabs or your payment options, call us and we can help: 1-866-317-7050.
