Addiction Statistics in the U.S.

The National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics (NCDAS) is a helpful resource highlighting drug abuse data in the United States. NCDAS shared that a key finding of their research is that half of Americans 12 and older have used illicit drugs at least once in their lives. Additionally, the NCDAS reported that 20.4% of Americans are living with an alcohol use disorder, and 25.4% of individuals who use illicit drugs are living with an addiction.

National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSUDH) reported that 19.7 million Americans 23 and older were living with a substance use disorder in 2017. The NSUDH shared that approximately 8.5 million Americans in the same age group were living with another mental health concern in addition to their substance use disorder in 2017.

how to treat

How to Treat Substance Abuse Disorders?

Treatment options for individuals who are struggling with drugs and alcohol will vary from person to person. Factors that are taken into consideration include the severity of the person’s symptoms, the number of symptoms, physical health concerns, mental health concerns, and what substances are being abused.
There are two main categories of addiction treatment; inpatient and outpatient care. Inpatient treatment options include detoxification and inpatient rehab programs. Inpatient treatment programs include a full day of structured treatment while you reside in the treatment center. The length of inpatient rehab programs can vary from 4 to 12 weeks, depending on your needs.

A variety of outpatient treatment options can be used during different stages of your recovery journey. Individuals who struggle with a severe substance use disorder may find themselves in a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), which will have a full day of treatment, similar to inpatient rehab. The key difference is that you would reside in your home or another sober environment. Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPS) are a short-term treatment option that can include 9 to 12 hours of group therapy each week. Routine outpatient treatment tends to be more personalized and can include group or individual therapy. 

Both inpatient and outpatient treatment options can use group therapy, individual therapy, dual-diagnosis treatment, and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to support individuals working on their recovery. If you or a loved one have been struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction, you should consider addiction treatment in Los Angeles, CA. For individuals living in the surrounding area, ARTS IOP can provide you with outpatient treatment services that can be worked into your daily routine. To learn more about how our programs can be tailored to your needs, call to speak with an ARTS IOP representative now.
