Montana is a state known for its isolated beauty. But one thing it’s also becoming known for is its drug use.
Many drugs plague Montana communities today. The state’s drug overdose mortality rate is the 21st highest in the country, according to the research institute The Trust for America’s Health.
Obviously, having the 21st highest overdose mortality rate is bad. But what should be even more intimidating is that the Trust for America’s health also gave Montana a five out of 10 for “promising strategies to help curb prescription drug abuse.” That means Montana may face even more drug problems in the future.
Heroin & Meth Find their Way into Montana Homes
Montana police and law enforcement have started to report growing rates of heroin abuse and methamphetamine addiction across the state. However, these drugs aren’t local products. Instead, the drugs are shipped in from larger cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Meth and heroin are two of the most addictive and dangerous drugs out there. Both drugs are powerful enough to “rewire” your brain. After years of abuse, it becomes nearly impossible for addicts to understand the consequences of their actions. Getting treatment early is crucial for reversing brain damage and going on to live a healthy and drug-free life.
Medical Detox is Necessary for Hard Drug Addictions
When it comes to getting off hard drugs, you really can’t just “go cold turkey.” Detox from heroin can be extremely uncomfortable, and can cause medical complications. Meth detox can result in intense illness and psychological problems. Even alcohol can cause potentially fatal seizures if the detox isn’t handled correctly.
However, with medically supervised detox, all the symptoms of withdrawal can be safely managed. Special medications are used to stabilize your condition. Proper nutrition is also emphasized to make sure your body is getting the nutrients you may be lacking. Your status will be monitored and your vitals checked throughout the whole process. By the end of the treatment, you will be drug free and ready to start the next phase in your recovery.
