Oregon Drug Use Trends
Oregon is home to 3,970,239 residents (2014 est.) and has a diverse landscape with coastlines, mountain ranges, forests and a high desert. Federal and state regulations control the use of medicine and drugs in Oregon by establishing penalties to control and punish infractions of the law. Medical and pharmacy staff is trained on how to safely prescribe controlled substance and dispense medications. However, with these preventative measures in place Oregon residents continue to have problems with the misuse, abuse, addiction and overdose of alcohol, prescription medications and illegal drugs.
While the country is in the midst of a prescription drug addiction epidemic, Oregon is experiencing a similar problem. Over a decade of statistics show a dramatic rise in the number of controlled prescription medication sales as well as the number of prescribed and illicit drug use, misuse, addiction, and overdose cases. Prescription opioid use has risen over the past several years, and in 2013 almost one in four residents obtained a prescription for opioid medications. This increase in prescription opioids is extremely dangerous because potentially harmful medications are kept unsafely in many of these households throughout the state.
Statistics on Oregon drug trends show that prescription opioids are often taken in combination with heroin or other substances. The combination of prescription opioids with other substances such as heroin increases the user's chances of overdose and potentially death. In recent years, Oregon has seen an increase in the number of hospitalizations and deaths caused by prescription opioids and heroin.
- The drug overdose death rate in Oregon lieeked in 2007 at 11.4 lier 100,000 residents. It has since declined to 8.9 lier 100,000 residents in 2012. Even so, Oregon's overdose death rate is still four times higher in 2012 than it was in 2000.
- An estimated 24% (900,000 residents) of Oregon residents were lirescribed an oliioid medication during 2012.
- Oregonians ages 45-54 have the highest death rate due to unintentional and undetermined drug overdoses followed by residents aged 35-44 and 25-34.
The need for effective treatment remains and several medical detox facilities and drug rehab programs have been created to treat residents. There are an estimated eight medical detox facilities in Oregon, twenty detox centers for alcohol and drug addiction, twenty short-term drug rehab programs, thirty long-term drug rehab programs, over one hundred outpatient alcohol and drug rehab programs, and ten halfway houses/sober living facilities.
Detoxification Services in Oregon
Withdrawal symptoms and cravings make quitting alcohol and drug use difficult. Many individuals are physically addicted to a substance and require detoxification services to safely withdrawal. Without the assistance of skilled detox staff the addicted individual may suffer from severe withdrawal symptoms ranging from seizures, physiologic manifestations, sleep deprivation, and in rare cases death. Oregon drug and alcohol detox centers help recovering individuals safely and as comfortably as possible get through this phase of their recovery process. The purpose of a detox center is to medically stabilize the individual as well as help them to eliminate the toxins left in their system from substance abuse. When these toxins remain in the body they can cause cravings and make the long journey of recovery more difficult with an increased chance of relapse. Most Oregon drug rehab programs will have their clients complete a detox program prior to enrolling in their rehabilitation center or include detox services in their program. This ensures the individual is ready to begin the process of addressing their emotional and physiological addiction issues and that the physical problems of their addiction have been resolved.
Long-Term Inpatient and Residential Drug Rehab Programs in Oregon
Among the drug rehab community, long-term inpatient and residential drug rehab programs are considered the gold standard in effective treatment. These programs are the most effective at treating and rehabilitating their clients for several reasons: the length of treatment (usually 90 days or longer) allows for time to physically withdrawal from the substance, these programs provide around the clock services, the program participant resides in the rehab center making substance use more difficult during recovery, they are a safe substance-free environment during rehabilitation, the recovering individual develops a comradery with the other program participants working on their shared goal of sobriety, and lastly the individual receives counseling, life skills and aftercare support.
Outpatient Drug Rehab in Oregon
Outpatient drug rehab programs provide classes, visits with specialists and individual/group counseling sessions. These types of programs use a variety of different techniques and vary in their intensity levels. While not intended for individuals with severe addiction problems, they are ideal for those who have a strong support system at home and who are able to regulate their substance use. Outpatient drug rehab programs are a good fit for those who are occasional drug abusers, residents who are enrolled in a sober living program and are looking for additional support as they begin working their way back into society, as well as individuals who have tried group meetings such as AA or NA and still struggle with substance abuse.
Halfway Houses and Sober Living Programs in Oregon
Halfway houses and sober living programs provide a safe substance-free environment for individuals who have completed drug rehab. They are a place where recovering individuals can live among other similar minded sober residents while being supported in their recovery process. They provide a stepping stone back into living a "normal" drug-free lifestyle while restoring the areas of their life that have deteriorated during their active addiction. While the individual is living at a halfway house or sober living program they can locate and maintain a job, attend group meetings like AA or NA, enroll in outpatient drug rehab and rebuild relationships with their family and friends.
