Arizona Sober Living Homes
There are around 3,000 drug-related deaths in the state of Arizona every year. Two-thirds of these occur in the populous Maricopa County, where cities like Phoenix provide a significant contribution to this insidious epidemic, but it’s not an issue reserved for the state’s population centers. It’s an issue that has spread into every corner and niche of the Copper State, and it’s only getting worse.
We have several sober living homes in Arizona that were established to aid the state’s growing number of addicts and help them get their lives back on track.
You can find our Carla Vista Sober Living Homes in Arizona in the following cities:
Opioid Addiction in Arizona
Between 2013 and 2017, deaths involving opioids increased by over 75% in the state of Arizona, and this alarming statistic has continued to climb ever since. Arizona’s rates are slightly under the national average, which sounds positive, but it begins to sound decidedly less positive when you consider that the national average is higher than it has ever been and higher than any other country in the developed world.
Every year, around 14 Arizonians will die for every 100,000 of the population, accounting for close to 1,000 deaths in total. And that only includes those who die as a direct result of opioid use. It doesn’t include the people who suffer serious, long-term health complications; it doesn’t include those who continue to live, even though their careers and social lives crumble around them. It also doesn’t include the parents, grandparents, children, nephews, nieces, uncles, aunties and friends of addicts, all of whom suffer as a result of a loved one’s addiction.
Heroin use accounts for a significant number of opioid deaths in the state of Arizona, but these are still eclipsed by prescription opioids, which kill over 400 people a year. There are over 60 prescriptions for every 100,000 people, which is higher than the national average, and higher than it has ever been.
Our Arizona sober living facilities are equipped to deal with all kinds of opioid addictions; our specialists are experienced in providing the level of care required to help recovering addicts get back on their feet. They understand the stages of withdrawal, whether it results from heroin, methadone or synthetic opioids, and they know how to guide addicts through these stages.
If you need help with prescription opioid abuse, contact one of our specialists today and arrange a place in our Arizona sober living facility.
Alcohol Rehab in Arizona
Arizona residents are some of the biggest drinkers in the United States, and the state has consistently ranked amongst the top 5 for alcohol consumption. Over 51% Arizonians drink on at least a monthly basis, and a large percentage of those drink what would be considered an unhealthy amount.
The state’s open relationship with alcohol has led to a huge number of alcohol-related deaths, with a 2015 report by the CDC listing Arizona as the 4th highest for alcohol poisoning in individuals above the age of 15.
One of the few saving graces is that the rate of underage drinking has stalled over the years and is showing no signs of increasing, but every other stat related to alcohol in Arizona seems to be negative.
That’s why our sober living facilities in Arizona are so committed to eradicating this issue and to helping those in need. Alcoholism is not only relevant, it’s also incredibly dangerous, with life-threatening withdrawals and one of the worst detoxes of any substance. Our specialists understand these issues and are trained to deal with them, ensuring alcoholics in Arizona get the care they need.
Meth and Other Drugs
Arizona may not have the highest opioid deaths and it may not be the worst for alcoholism, but a recent report by the CDC suggested that it has the second-highest overdose deaths when all substances are taken into consideration. As many as 20 out of 100,000 are dying from drug use, and in addition to a sharp rise in the number of deaths between 2013 and 2016, there was also another big jump from 2017 to 2019.
A lot of these additional deaths result from methamphetamine, which is one of Arizona’s biggest issues right now, accounting for more hospital and rehab admissions than heroin. Cocaine use is dropping, but meth, opioids, and marijuana are either increasing or remaining stable.
We have sober living facilities for both male and female addicts. These cater for people of all ages and at all stages of recovery. We do not discriminate based on age, health or addiction, and you can receive help whether you’re struggling with a short-term marijuana addiction or long-term alcoholism.
Our facilities are safe havens, providing recovering addicts with a safe and comfortable place to nurse themselves back to sobriety. They are low-stress, drug-free facilities complete with everything you could need to get back on your feet, including regular therapy sessions and a network of individuals in a similar position.
