Landmark Recovery of Indianapolis is here to help you on your path to sobriety by taking you through the steps and stages of successful drug recovery.
Drug Abuse and Addiction in Indiana
Substance abuse continues to be a major public health concern that is having a devastating impact across the state of Indiana. There were nearly 2,000 drug overdose deaths in Indiana in 2017, and more Indiana residents now die from drug overdose than in car crashes. 1 In addition to a staggering number of overdose fatalities, Indiana has also endured shattered communities, new clusters of infectious disease, increased numbers of children needing foster care, and serious threats to the state’s economic vitality. The direct and indirect costs related to the unprecedented prevalence of drug abuse and addiction have cost Indiana around $4.3 billion annually, or nearly $11 million a day. 2
Recent results from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) show that alcohol is the most commonly abused drug in Indiana. More than half of all Indiana residents (aged 12 and older) currently drink alcohol and nearly a quarter of all Hoosiers have recently engaged in binge drinking, a dangerous pattern of alcohol abuse defined as the consumption of five or more drinks on the same occasion. 3 Marijuana is the most used illegal drug in the state, with more than 1 in 10 Indiana residents reporting current use of the drug. Other survey findings show that 1 in 22 residents misuse prescription opioid painkillers, 1 in 47 use cocaine, 1 in 116 use methamphetamines, and 1 in 200 use heroin.
It is reported that 1 in 12 Indiana residents, almost a half million people, currently suffer from some form of addiction. 1 This includes about 1 in 20 Hoosiers suffering from alcoholism, 1 in 33 addicted to an illicit drug, and nearly 1 in 100 with an addiction to prescription opioid drugs. 3
In 2019, there were 27,452 admissions to Indiana drug recovery centers. 4 Unfortunately, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration estimates that more than 9 out of 10 Hoosiers who are in need of drug recovery treatment do not receive any form of treatment for their addiction. 3
Drug Recovery Center in Indianapolis
Are you in the Indianapolis area trying to overcome drug addiction? If you can acknowledge a personal struggle with substance dependence, then you have already taken the first step toward recovery. Your next step should be to find a drug recovery program that can help you safely discontinue drug use and maintain long-term sobriety.
Landmark Recovery of Indianapolis can provide you with the help and support that are needed to succeed in recovery from drug addiction. Our treatment programs are personalized for each client and will be tailored to meet your specific needs and situation. Depending on your drug of abuse and severity of addiction, our evidence-based drug recovery programs can be provided in a residential, partial hospitalization, or outpatient setting.
Detoxification is an essential step in recovery that involves safely withdrawing from drug use until all traces of drugs are completely flushed out of your body. We offer a medically supervised detox program to help you get through the withdrawal process successfully. Our trained clinical specialists provide around-the-clock monitoring while keeping you safe and comfortable throughout the entire detox process. When detoxing from some drugs (such as opioids and alcohol) you may be prescribed certain medications to help reduce cravings and alleviate the pain and discomfort of withdrawal. 5 These medications will typically be tapered down until you are no longer physically dependent on the drug.
Once you have completed detox and are stabilized, you will be ready to enter the therapy phase of drug recovery. Our drug recovery programs typically include a variety of science-backed therapies such as behavioral therapy, individual and group counseling, family therapy, health and wellness education, and medication-assisted therapy. Behavioral therapy is often the cornerstone of drug recovery in Indianapolis and will help identify underlying causes of addiction and teach skills and behaviors needed to control cravings and prevent relapse. 6
Your treatment will not end when you leave our Indiana drug recovery center. Landmark Recovery of Indianapolis will continue to guide you through drug recovery with a fully integrated support network and variety of aftercare services. Before you are discharged from our drug recovery program, we will provide you with a comprehensive discharge plan that includes lifestyle guides, coping mechanisms, and referrals to private therapists, psychiatrists, sober living houses, and local support group meetings to help you succeed following your drug recovery. You will also be assigned a personal recovery coach who will help you transition into a self-directed recovery plan. All alumni also have access to our dedicated family therapists as well as alumni programming that includes monthly symposiums and regularly scheduled SMART Recovery and AA meetings.
