Hamilton County Opiate Abuse Statistics
Hamilton County has been affected by the opiate epidemic, which has shown itself in cases of addiction as well as overdoses and deaths. Numbers are rising in Hamilton County, just as in the rest of the country, according to the latest reports. There were 31 percent more drug overdose deaths in Hamilton County in 2017 than in 2016. Of the 529 people in 2017 who died from an overdose, 373 of them were opiate-related deaths. In Hamilton County, there were 30,000 drug-seizure cases in the county last year, which is 2.5 times higher than any other crime lab in the state. A large percentage of the drug cases in the state involved heroin and fentanyl. (Cincinnati.com)
Dangers of Opiate Abuse
The drugs most abused in Hamilton County last year were opiates, such as morphine, Fentanyl, and heroin. Street opiates today are often made in facilities around the world, and users can never be sure what ingredients are in the drugs they are abusing or the strength of the drug. These factors combine to make street opiates unpredictable and dangerous, contributing to a large number of overdose deaths.
Opiates are addictive substances, and even painkillers that are prescribed by a doctor can be abused and lead to dependence and addiction. The best way to prevent prescription painkiller addiction is to take these medications exactly as directed, and have ongoing conversations with one’s doctor about the risk of addiction and using the lowest dose necessary. Other drugs, like heroin and synthetic street opiates, are produced simply for recreational use and should be completely avoided. However, many people get hooked on prescription painkillers because they think they are harmless, and over time they switch to harder, cheaper, or easier to obtain drugs like heroin.
Miamitown Outpatient Drug Rehab
Residents of Ohio who are in need of treatment for drug addiction will find resources available right here. Northland Treatment Center provides outpatient treatment in a convenient location for those addicted to opiates and other drugs, as well as alcohol addiction. Our drug rehab specializes in Suboxone Intensive Outpatient (SIOP) treatment, an effective form of medication-assisted rehab. With the help of medications like Suboxone, those in recovery for opiate addiction experience a much easier detox and recovery, with less pain and anxiety.
Individualized Drug Rehab
Not every rehab facility offers Suboxone assisted treatment, and not every facility offers individualized care. At Northland, we understand that each person is different, and what works for one might not work for the next. For this reason, our doctors and staff conduct full assessments on clients as they enter our program so that we can establish a plan that will work for them.
For those who are a good fit for our medication-assisted recovery, Northland offers a more intensive SIOP (Suboxone Intensive Outpatient Program) which uses medications like Suboxone to manage detox and treat opiate addiction. The SIOP phase lasts one to two weeks after detox and then you will transition to our IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) which is three times a week for 12 weeks. We have morning and evening options available. After IOP you will attend 52 weeks of aftercare which is a once per week group. If you present to us with a substance use issue other than opiates you will be placed directly into the IOP level of care. Our staff is knowledgeable about insurance coverage and we accept private insurance on an out of network basis. We also have self-pay options when necessary.
Northland is the resource for residents in Miamitown and surrounding areas who need help for a drug or alcohol addiction. If you or a loved one is struggling with opiate or other drug abuse, we can create a treatment program that will work for you. Contact us to learn more.
