Addiction is a complex but treatable disease. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas can help you overcome drug and alcohol addiction using medical detox and evidence-based treatment plans.
Alcohol is by far the most widely abused drug among Nevada residents. Nearly half of all Nevadans aged 12 older identify as current drinkers, and 23% report past-month binge drinking, the abusive pattern of alcohol consumption defined as drinking five or more drinks on the same occasion. 1 The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that 139,000 Nevadans aged 12 or older (5.5% of all individuals in this age group) is afflicted with alcohol use disorder, a debilitating disease of alcohol addiction more commonly known as alcoholism.
Marijuana use in Nevada has more than tripled since 2011. Approximately 17.4% of Nevadans reported current marijuana use in 2019, compared to only 5.7% in 2011. 2 This surge in the rate of marijuana use is likely related to Nevada’s legalization of recreational marijuana use in 2017.
Like the rest of the country, Nevada has been devastated by the current opioid epidemic. Around 5% of Nevada residents misused prescription opioids in the past year, 1 and nearly 1% used prescription painkillers to get high in last 30 days. 2 It is estimated that 0.7% of Nevadans aged 12 or older suffer from addiction to a prescription opioid medication. 1
According to the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, nearly 2% of Nevada residents report the recent use of an illegal drug. 1 This includes 2.3% of Nevadans who reported the use of cocaine, 1.3% who used methamphetamines, and 0.34% who used heroin. 2 Recent findings from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health indicate that 4% of Nevadans are currently addicted to an illicit drug.
The effects of substance abuse and addiction have devastated the residents of Nevada. Findings from autopsy reports, toxicology tests, and analysis of hospital records indicate that drug and alcohol abuse was directly responsible for 1,682 overdose deaths, 64,502 emergency department visits, and 52,632 inpatient hospital admissions in Nevada during 2018. 3 SAMHSA estimates 218,000 Nevadans are currently in need of substance abuse treatment, 1 although admissions data indicate that only 11,101 individuals were admitted to Nevada substance abuse rehab centers in 2019. 4 These statistics demonstrate a hugely unmet need for treatment in the Silver State, as only 1 out of every 20 Nevadans in need of substance abuse treatment are actually treated at Nevada rehab centers.
Recovering from an addiction is not easy, especially when you are on your own. Fortunately, there are treatment options available to help guide you through the recovery process. To give yourself the best chance of overcoming addiction, please consider substance abuse rehab from a professional treatment center.
Landmark Recovery’s substance abuse rehab center in Las Vegas provides expert care and evidence-based treatments that will help you overcome addiction and prepare you for long-term recovery. Depending on the substance of abuse and the nature of your addiction, we can provide rehab treatment through a combination of residential, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient programs.
No single treatment is appropriate for everyone. That is why you will undergo a thorough medical exam and psychological evaluation immediately upon admission to our facility. This allows our medical team to develop a personalized treatment plan that ensures the care and support you receive meets your specific rehab needs. Because effective treatment must address the multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse, your customized treatment program will also attend to any associated health concerns, such as a co-occurring mental health disorder.
The first step in addiction recovery, which must be completed prior to the start of any therapy, is always detox. During this critical process all traces of drugs and alcohol are flushed from your system, helping to prepare your body and mind for rehab. Detox can be extremely painful, and potentially life-threatening, due to withdrawal symptoms experienced as the brain adjusts to functioning without the presence of drugs or alcohol. 5
If you are a heavy or chronic user or have developed a drug or alcohol dependency, it is strongly recommended that you detox under medical supervision at a professional rehab center. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas offers a medical detox program that can carefully manage your withdrawal as you go through detox. Clinical specialists will keep you safe and comfortable throughout the entire process, providing 24/7 supportive care and prescribing medications that help reduce cravings and alleviate symptoms of withdrawal. 5
Once you successfully complete detoxing, you will be ready to enter the therapeutic stage of substance abuse rehab. Landmark Recovery of Las Vegas takes a holistic approach to addiction treatment, helping you achieve long-term recovery by healing your body, mind, and spirit. Key components of our personalized substance abuse rehab programs include:
Behavioral therapies are the cornerstone to Landmark Recovery’s substance abuse rehab treatment programs. A number of different science-backed behavioral health therapies, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and contingency management interventions, will be used to identify the root causes of your addiction and help you develop the healthy thought patterns and coping skills needed to maintain sobriety and prevent relapse. 6
