More Info About Rehabs in Michigan
The state is taking action in response to the current opioid crisis. Clean syringes are now available for intravenous drug users to prevent the spread of infectious diseases, and there are naloxone training and distribution programs across the state. Michigan’s Bureau of Substance Abuse and Addiction Services established an Evidence-Based Workgroup, compiling credible research and evidence about what prevention and treatment methods bring about positive change.
Efforts like these are changing addiction treatment in Michigan for the better. As evidence-based practices are incorporated, rehabs across the state are more capable of helping those in need. If you’re looking for a quality treatment facility in Michigan, whether it’s for you or for a loved one, call us and we can help you through the process: 1-866-317-7050.
- Every year, more than 700,000 people in Michigan are dependent upon or abusing alcohol and/or illicit drugs.
- Only around 8% of people in need of alcohol abuse treatment in Michigan receive it, but more than 18% of those struggling with drug abuse receive treatment services.
- In 2015, alcohol and heroin were the two most common primary substances of abuse among people admitted to treatment in Michigan.
- About 20% of those 2015 treatment admissions were between the ages of 26 and 30, and this age group was the most likely to abuse heroin or prescription opioids.
- Treatment admissions over the age of 40 were the most likely to primarily abuse alcohol.
For a person of any age or with any substance of abuse, a quality treatment program will create a plan of care to meet your individual needs. This plan of care is not a simple one-time “treatment” for substance abuse like taking a medication, but it is a system of learning that opens the door to a life in recovery. In the search for a treatment center, consider facilities with services that align with your needs or the needs of your loved one.
Michigan is home to almost 500 different substance abuse facilities, and each has a unique approach to treatment and atmosphere. Some rehabs conduct therapy groups tailored to different age groups, genders, sexual orientations, or physical conditions like pregnancy or infectious diseases. Many will offer trauma-related counseling, or special groups for survivors of violence and abuse.
Because people dealing with substance abuse issues so often have a co-occurring mental health disorder, almost half of Michigan’s rehabs are dual diagnosis facilities. These facilities recognize that mental illness can play a significant role in substance abuse behaviors, and treat the two conditions alongside one another. Clients with severe anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or any number of mental conditions can learn to manage their mental health while also breaking free from substance abuse.
Many dual diagnosis facilities are inpatient rehabs, where clients are residents of the facility. There are also non-dual-diagnosis options for inpatient rehab, which offer clients the safety and security of being separated from their normal daily lives for anywhere from 30 to 90 days. Inpatient treatment is often considered an important step in building long-term recovery, because there’s a high level of involvement and many hours dedicated to treatment activities.
There are also outpatient treatment facilities, which often serve as a follow-up to inpatient during the transition back into daily life. However, outpatient is also a viable option for people who can’t pay for inpatient treatment, or who are unable to leave their home-life responsibilities. Outpatient facilities generally schedule times that clients attend their groups and individual therapy sessions, but clients do not stay at the facility overnight.
If you’re looking for transitional housing options after treatment, be sure to look for sober homes that are certified by the Michigan Association of Recovery Residences (MARR). Houses cleared by MARR are upheld to a code of ethics, which ensures that residents are in a safe, sober environment. If you need assistance at any point in your search for treatment or aftercare options, don’t hesitate to call us: 1-866-317-7050.
- Michigan’s Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has a Behavioral Health and Developmental Services Administration, which manages prevention and treatment services for people with substance use disorders in the state. Their Office of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (OROSC) helps to connect people in need with the appropriate treatment services.
- Because of the prevalence of substance use disorders alongside mental health disorders, MDHHS has established Integrated Treatment for Co-occurring Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders. This treatment approach seeks to improve the system of care for people with co-occurring disorders and help people manage and recover from both mental illness and substance disorders.
- MDHHS also has a Bureau of Disease Control, Prevention, and Epidemiology, which collects and analyzes data on substance abuse in the state. The Bureau uses current trends to inform and improve Michigan’s prevention and treatment programs.
- The Empowerment Zone Coalition (EZC) is a non-profit based in Detroit, raising awareness about substance use and mental health disorders throughout the city. The group is involved in public policy advocacy and community programs, designed to create healthier lives for Detroit residents.
- The Jackson County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition is a group of community members united in substance abuse prevention efforts. The group collects data on substance abuse, creates policy related to prevention strategies, and implements programs to raise awareness in local communities.
