Prescription painkiller and heroin abuse could be costing the state of Indiana as much as $4 billion annually, with more Hoosiers dying every year from opioid overdoses than car accidents. Landmark Recovery of Carmel, Indiana was founded in order to provide those struggling with addiction access to high quality, affordable treatment for substance use disorders.

2018 Overdose Death Rate (per 100,000) From Drug Poisoning From Any Opioid
State of Addiction: Indiana
Drug addiction could be one of the worst public health crises in the state of Indiana. In the last decade, the state has continually ranked among the highest in the nation for overdose rates, methamphetamine lab incidents, and the rate of children in foster care.
According to federal and state data:
1 in 20 people in Indiana have abused an opioid painkiller in the past year.
The number of fatal overdoses has increased by over 800% since 1999.
Indiana experienced a record high of drug overdose deaths in 2017, up 22.5% from 2016.
“Every minute of every day, in some form or another, people are dying.”
Doug Carter, Indiana State Police Superintendent, 2018 (source)
Top Addictions People Go To Rehab For in 2018
Adequate access to evidence-based treatment is crucial for individuals suffering from substance use disorders. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in combination with counseling has been shown to be effective in treating opioid use disorders, reducing mortality, relapse, and costs compared to drug-free treatment or no treatment. Unfortunately, Indiana has ranked as one of the worst states in terms of MAT supply vs. demand.
Inpatient treatment at Landmark Recovery of Carmel, Indiana comprises full time residency of 35-45 days with the goal of stabilizing and improving the life functionality of our patients. Our program is centered around teaching patients the skills to maintain sobriety, with therapy sessions designed to explore the underlying triggers of substance abuse. Support groups are also designed to help recovering addicts share their story in a safe, private environment.
1/3 of People Who are Treated for Alcohol Problems Have No Further Symptoms 1 Year Later
Alcohol is the most frequently abused substance in the state of Indiana. According to a 2017 report from the Indiana State Epidemiology and Outcomes Workgroup, more than half of the state population aged 12 and older has consumed alcohol in the past month, and 25% of Hoosiers engaged in binge drinking in the same time period. Roughly 5% of the state also suffers from alcohol use disorder, a rate that is roughly 2% higher than the national average.
Alcohol abuse and dependence can hamper brain development, negatively impact body chemistry, and contribute significantly to early mortality. According to studies from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, roughly one-third of people who are treated for alcohol problems have no further symptoms 1 year later, and even more report substantially reducing their drinking and fewer alcohol-related problems. At Landmark Recovery, patients have the chance to take back control of their lives and heal from the damage wrought by alcohol abuse.
When it comes to opioids and other drugs that commonly cause fatal overdoses, the bleak picture of Indiana’s drug problem becomes clearer. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), Indiana consistently ranks above the national average for prescription painkiller abuse, usually by 1% or more, which is a much larger chunk of people than you might think. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention even reported that Indiana experienced a record high of drug overdose deaths in 2017. Specifically, there were 1,852 drug deaths in Indiana that year, an 18% increase from 2016’s numbers
Drug rehab at Landmark Recovery offers patients the opportunity to detox safely and effectively. Our inpatient and outpatient treatment models comprise ongoing group and individual therapy sessions utilizing evidence-based modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and internationally renowned sobriety programs such as 12 Steps, SMART Recovery, and Seeking Safety.
“The more we have people come together that trust each other, they’re willing to work together, leverage each other’s resources to tackle a problem that’s affecting so many people, the better results we’re gonna have.”
– Jim McClelland, Executive Director Indiana Drug Treatment Prevention and Enforcement, 2018 (source)
Healthy Indiana Plan
Part of Indiana’s plan to address the opioid epidemic is the Healthy Indiana Plan. This initiative starts with creating more sensible legislation that better targets areas in need and making a firm commitment to seek new and innovative treatment options. Governor Eric Holcomb is working to secure $60 to $65 million in additional funding for residential treatment and recovery options, with at least five new treatment facilities already being opened. The 21st Century Cures Act also provided Indiana with $10.9 million in additional funds for increasing residential treatment in high-risk areas of the state.

Narcan Administration PSA
Indiana state law says that Narcan can be sold to anyone, over the counter, without the need for a prescription. In the city of Lebanon, Indiana, some of the high school’s staff is currently undergoing Narcan training. Whitestown Fire Department (WFD) has even posted an instructional video on how to properly administer Narcan in a situation of opioid overdose.
