Virginia Drug Use Trends
Known for the Blue Ridge Mountains and Chesapeake Bay, the Commonwealth of Virginia is home to 8,326,289 residents (2014 census). Over the years the state's economy has diversified from agricultural to federal agencies such as the Department of Defense and CIA as well as industry; computer chips are the state's leading export since 2002. While many residents lead healthy, productive lives there are those who struggle with alcoholism and drug addiction throughout the state. The Office of Substance Abuse Services is responsible for planning, developing, directing, funding and monitoring the delivery of comprehensive drug and alcohol abuse services throughout Virginia. By evaluating the data reported to the organization they are able to generate integrated substance abuse treatment programs that support resident's recovery needs. Additionally, their efforts work towards empowering Virginia drug rehab programs to reduce and prevent the negative effects of substance abuse on the resident, their families and the state of Virginia as a whole.

The creation of the Virginia State Police Drug Diversion Unit has effectively reduced the pharmaceutical drug diversion problem throughout the state. The focus of this program is on eliminating the prescription drug problem in Virginia by exposing the diversion of legitimate prescription medications for illicit purposes. Physicians who find their prescription pad has been stolen, changes to their prescriptions have taken place and/or the illegal use of their name or DEA number to obtain false prescriptions can reach out to the Drug Diversion Unit for support. The agency will generate an alert with all the necessary information to inform pharmacies in the physician's surrounding area to the potential diversion of prescription medication.
In 2004 Virginia adopted the Drug Treatment Court Act. The purpose of this act is to reduce the incidence of drug use, drug addiction, family separation due to parental substance abuse and drug-related crimes. Since its creation the Drug Treatment Court Act has effectively enhanced Virginia resident's public safety through the development of drug treatment courts. By 2010, thirty drug treatment court programs were in existence helping Virginia residents address and overcome their alcohol and drug addiction problems. Virginia Drug Treatment Courts have successfully achieved their mission of providing " a judicially-supervised, cost effective, collaborative approach for handling court-involved individuals with substance use disorders that promotes public safety, ensures accountability, and transforms participants into productive members of the community."
Virginia Drug Rehab
With over one-hundred and eighteen drug rehab programs located throughout Virginia, residents have access to a wide variety of treatment options and methods of recovery. There are support groups, addiction counseling and outpatient treatment for residents seeking addiction rehabilitation services that do not involve living at the rehab center. These less intensive types of support provide limited guidance while the individual attends the meeting or clinic while allowing them to continue with most aspects of their daily lives. Ideal for residents who have a brief history of substance abuse or who have been through more intensive forms of treatment before, these types of programs are unable to help individuals struggling with severe addiction issues or those requiring medical detoxification for their withdrawal symptoms.
Inpatient residential drug rehab programs in Virginia provide residents with a number of benefits they won't find in outpatient treatment, addiction counseling or support groups. While each program is different and runs for varying lengths of time the general benefits of attending an inpatient residential drug rehab include:
- around the clock support and guidance during one's time residing in the drug rehab
- withdrawal and detoxification services
- addiction counseling
- drug and alcohol education
- developing skills to remain alcohol and drug-free
- relapse prevention education, and aftercare services
When theses rehabilitation services are combined residents have the highest chances of successfully overcoming their addiction and restoring their lives.
