- Every year, nearly 250,000 people in Oregon are dependent upon or abusing substances. That’s around 15% of the state’s population—more than 1 in every 10 people.
- Between 8% to 10% of those people in need of substance abuse treatment receive treatment services.
- In 2014, over one-third (37%) of the people in Oregon’s treatment facilities primarily abused alcohol, often along with a secondary drug.
- Amphetamines were the substance of choice for 20.9% of people that year, while 19.1% primarily abused heroin.
- Those who primarily abused alcohol were a wide range of different ages, but the majority of all amphetamine and heroin abusers were between the ages of 21 and 36.
Whether you are struggling with substance abuse or watching a loved one struggle, it can be painful. Unlike many other conditions, addiction is chronic. Treatment does not “fix” substance abuse behaviors, but it can open the door to ongoing recovery. Every person’s experience of substance abuse is unique—their substance(s) of choice, the severity of their abuse or dependence, and the underlying factors that contribute to their substance abuse behaviors—and each treatment approach should be individualized. There are over 200 rehabs in Oregon, and the “right” rehab is the one that can best meet your or your loved one’s needs.
Some people prefer to attend a gender-specific treatment facility, and you can also find both adolescent programs and senior programs. Many rehabs in Oregon offer specialized services, like trauma-related counseling, support for pregnant or postpartum women, aid with DUIs and legal offenses, as well as groups for people with infectious diseases like HIV or Hepatitis C. Special services like these can be crucial to an individual’s healing process, but you’ll first have to decide between an inpatient or outpatient treatment setting.
At an inpatient rehab (also known as a residential rehab), you or your loved one will have round-the-clock care. Inpatient not only offers intensive involvement in treatment activities, but it also provides a safe opportunity for clients to learn how to live a healthier life—without substances. Relapse is common early in recovery, and a stay in an inpatient rehab is a form of protection during that vulnerable time. Research also shows that greater time and energy invested during treatment is typically linked with sustained sobriety.
Yet, inpatient can be an unrealistic option for some people, depending on their job, family responsibilities, or finances. If this is the case for you or a loved one, you may want to consider outpatient treatment. This kind of facility has scheduled counseling and therapy hours each day, but clients have the flexibility to maintain their daily responsibilities. Some recovering people thrive with this greater level of independence. But, this flexibility can be risky for others early in recovery, and many people choose to attend outpatient treatment after an inpatient stay.
Whether you choose inpatient or outpatient treatment, the most important factor is the amount of time dedicated to treatment activities. Based on treatment outcomes collected by Oregon’s Client Processing Monitoring System (CPMS), an average of 70% of people in the state’s outpatient facilities reported no substance abuse at the end of their treatment program. Most of those people stayed in treatment for 90 days or more.
As you look into Oregon’s rehabs, consider what kind of setting and which services might best help you or your loved one. Treatment can be a challenging process, but it is also meant to be a healing process. If you have questions along the way about locations, qualifications, or insurance benefits, call us anytime: 1-866-317-7050.
