Rehabs in Houston Deal with the Opioid Crisis



Drug Rehab Centers in Houston Deal with the Opioid Addiction Crisis

Drug rehab centers across the country are struggling to deal with the opioid crisis, but rehabs in Houston—for the most part—are prepared.

At Into Action Recovery Centers, we took note of the increase in admissions for opioid dependence and addiction. We have medically trained staff who are more than qualified to handle all addictions, including opioid addiction. Read this comment from one of our reviewers:

“After many years of struggling with alcohol and drug abuse, I found IARC via a google search. It was one of the best decisions I had made in a very long time! I had been to other centers before, but something was very different about IARC. It seemed as though everyone was finding a solution to their problem. The awesome staff had shared the same issues I had and it was a great experience and inspiration to watch how they live today. They were able to share with me, and show me how to do what they did to get and be better. I owe a lot to IARC and their staff for helping me build the foundation that is still my recovery after 55 months of sobriety.”

“I live a drastically different life today. The thing to keep in mind is, sobriety is for people who want to be sober and if you want it, this is the place to go. I would recommend IARC to anyone seeking a solution to their problem. Great facility, great staff, great new way to live. Thanks IARC! I will be forever grateful!”

Back to the Issue of Rehabs in Houston

In early June, the Houston Police Department reported that they had seized some illegal drugs, and in the batch was an unidentified amount of fentanyl. It wasn’t the first time “gray death” was seized in Houston, and I feel fairly certain it won’t be the last. It’s not that Houston is any worse than other cities; in fact, most rehabs in Houston are prepared for it. It’s simply that there is an opioid crisis going on worldwide—an opioid epidemic.

And I firmly believe—based on earlier reports, such as A Geographical Look at the Opioid Crisis,—that fentanyl’s arrival in Houston was inevitable, as it is in most cities. That’s the bad news.

The good news is that there are rehabs in Houston equipped and prepared to deal with the problems. Into Action Recovery Centers is one of them.

Any kind of addiction is a problem. Opioid addiction is a recent phenomenon that has become a nationwide and worldwide epidemic. More than 60,000 people died from drug overdoses in the United States in 2016, as reported in the Opioid Dependence blog, and more than 187,000 people died worldwide. While you can see that the US is bearing more than its share of the burden, opioid addiction is by no means an isolated problem. Even if you take away the United States statistics, that leaves more than 120,000 deaths.

Searching for drug rehab in Houston

If you find yourself in need of a rehab in Houston, Into Action Recovery Centers is prepared to help with your problem. We have not only dealt with the issues, but many of our staff have been through it, so they understand the problems you or your loved one are faced with.

Out of all the rehabs in Houston, Into Action Recovery is one of the few that can make that claim. We have medically trained staff available twenty-four hours a day, and we have staff that has experienced the pain and trials of addiction. In other words, we have the skills and understanding that you or your loved one needs.

Rehabs in Houston Are Prepared for the Worst

The National Institute on Drug Abuse and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) have proclaimed the current situation an unprecedented crisis—an epidemic of never-before experience proportions. At Into Action Recovery Centers we have seen a fifty percent increase in opioid addiction admissions.

As cited in the earlier blog, the opioid crisis is a worldwide problem, but no matter where you live—Houston or elsewhere—know that there are Houston rehabs ready to help you and Into Action Recovery Centers is one of them. In fact, according to Three Best Rated Into Action Recovery is one of the top three Houston rehabs. And we intend to keep it that way.

And don’t let questions of insurance postpone your help. We are in-network with most major insurance plans. If you don’t live in Houston, we’ll make arrangements to meet you at the airport and pick you up at the airport. In addition, we have a pro-active individualized program for those who do not have insurance coverage.
