The Need for Drug Rehabilitation Centers in Minnesota

Drug abuse affects everyone

Minnesota, though low on the list of states with a major drug and alcohol problem, is still feeling the effects of substance abuse stronger than ever before. According to an article by WalletHub on drug use by state, Minnesota ranked very last on the list of states with the biggest drug problem. However, there’s still room for improvement. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reported that in 2017, “there were 422 overdose deaths¬¬¬ involving opioids in Minnesota. The greatest rise occurred among deaths involving synthetic opioids other than methadone (predominantly fentanyl), with a nearly six-fold increase from 31 cases in 2011 to 184 cases in 2017.” While this number is small compared to many other states, for every death that occurs because of drugs, there are thousands of nonfatal cases of people suffering and needing help.
Binge drinking is also increasing, affecting numerous Minnesotans and their families. The Minnesota Department of Health reported that:

Binge drinking is more common than you think

  • “Minnesota had one of the highest binge drinking rates in the nation in 2016, with 21.3% of adults reporting binge drinking.
  • The percent of adults who said they binge drank in the past month has not changed much since 2011, with more men (26.5%) saying they binge drink than women (16.2%).
  • Women and men ages 18 to 44 years (23.6% and 35.5% respectively) were more likely to say they binge drink than those older than 44 years (10.3% of women and 18.6% of men).”

As you can see, you’re not alone in the struggle against drug and alcohol addiction. Drug treatment centers in Minnesota are sparse, but they are available. An article from the StarTribune states that while the opioid epidemic rages, much of Minnesota is a treatment desert. Meaning that there is not as much access to state-of-the-art treatment centers in Minnesota as there should be.

Traveling Outside of Rehab in Minnesota

Traveling to Florida for rehab can boost recovery

When you already have to travel to another county to receive treatment, consider taking it one step further, and traveling to another state altogether. Minnesota inpatient drug rehab facilities may have the care you need, but it’s a good idea to keep your options open and consider out-of-state facilities like United Recovery Project in Hollywood, Florida, as well. Many of our clients that have traveled to enroll in the programs we offer at United Recovery Project have said that traveling helped reduce distractions and eliminate familiar triggers that surrounded them in their hometown. Give yourself the best chance at completing your program and achieving a full recovery by opening your mind to the benefits of traveling outside of Minnesota for rehab.
