Known as the Silver State, Nevada is home to the Mojave Desert, Sierra Nevada Mountains, Lake Tahoe, and the glitzy Las Vegas strip lined with world class entertainment, fine dining, and 24-hour casinos. Unfortunately, Nevada is also home to a rapidly growing problem of drug abuse and addiction.
The most commonly abused substance in Nevada is alcohol. Half of all Nevadans over the age of 12 currently drink alcohol and nearly a quarter have recently engaged in binge drinking. The prevalent abuse of alcohol is a major concern for Nevada. More than 1,000 alcohol-related deaths were recorded in 2017, 1 including 87 fatalities from car crashes caused by alcohol-impaired driving. 2 Repeated alcohol abuse can easily lead to alcoholism, a debilitating disease of alcohol addiction that currently affects 139,000 Nevadans. 3 About 1 in 18 Nevada residents currently meet the criteria for alcohol use disorder (the medical diagnosis given for alcohol addiction), including a staggering 1 in 10 young adults aged 18-25 years.
The state of Nevada has been especially hard-hit during the current opioid crisis. In the past year, 1 in 22 Nevadans misused prescription opioid medications and around 1 in 300 reported the use of heroin. 3 There were 372 unintentional overdose deaths related to opioids in 2018, including 235 deaths involving prescription opioids. 4 Approximately 18,000 Nevadans currently suffer from addiction to prescription opioids. 3
Rates of marijuana use in Nevada have increased in recent years due to the state’s legalization of recreational marijuana. Around 1 in 7 Nevadans currently use marijuana and 1 in 5 have used marijuana in the past year. 3 Many are concerned about increased use among young Nevadans, as nearly 1 in 5 Nevada high school students currently use marijuana and more than 1 in 3 have tried the drug at least once. 1
In the past year, 1 in 44 Nevadans used cocaine and 1 in 78 reported the use of methamphetamine. 3 The resurgence in methamphetamine use is very troubling, as Nevada’s death rate from methamphetamines leads the nation and will soon eclipse the state’s prescription opioid death rate. 4 A number of other illicit drugs are used by the residents of Nevada. Recently, the percentage of Nevadans reporting current use of illegal drugs like LSD, MDMA (commonly known as ecstasy or molly), and ketamine has slightly increased to 1.5% of the adult population. 1 According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 1 in 25 Nevadans currently suffers from addiction to an illicit drug. 3
It is estimated that 1 in 12 Nevada residents meet the criteria for some form of substance use disorder.
Unfortunately, at least 200,000 Nevadans struggling with addiction do not receive the help from a drug rehab program or residential treatment center that they desperately need. If you are in search of help with drug addiction, please do not get discouraged. Effective drug rehab in Las Vegas is available.
Landmark Recovery’s residential treatment center in Las Vegas has many treatment options available to support your recovery from drug addiction. Your health is our primary concern and our personalized treatment programs will help you safely withdraw from drug dependency and provide you with the tools needed to prevent relapse and maintain long-term sobriety. Depending on your drug of abuse and severity of addiction, our evidence-based rehab programs can be provided through inpatient services in a residential treatment center, partial hospitalization programs, or intensive outpatient services.
Detox is a critical first step in any effective drug rehab program, that involves withdrawing from substance use until all traces of drugs are completely flushed out from your body. As this process can present serious health impacts, it is recommended to never attempt detox on your own. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas’s residential treatment center offers a medically supervised detox program that will get you through withdrawal safely and comfortably. Our trained clinical specialists will provide around-the-clock care and support and closely monitor you for any signs of potentially life-threatening medical complications. While you detox from some drugs, like opioids and alcohol, we may administer certain medications that can help reduce cravings and alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with withdrawal. 6
After you complete detoxing and are stabilized, you will be ready to begin the therapy phase of our Las Vegas drug rehab services. Our holistic treatment programs typically include a variety of science-backed therapies such as behavioral therapy, individual and group counseling, family therapy, support group meetings, health and wellness education, mindfulness and meditation-based therapies, and medication-assisted therapy. The cornerstone of rehab for drug addiction is behavioral therapy, which will help identify underlying causes of addiction and teach the coping strategies and changes in behavior that are needed to control cravings and prevent relapse. 7
