Residents of Wyoming who suffer from addiction to drugs or alcohol can get clean and sober under the warm, inviting Florida sun. With health insurance, medical detox treatment can be more affordable than you might think.
As one of the most beautiful and majestic states, you might not expect that Wyoming has a drug abuse problem. However, as of 2013, the nonprofit substance abuse research group The Trust for America’s Health ranks Wyoming as having the 15th highest overdose mortality rate in the country. Everything from prescription pills to meth claims lives and harms communities. But treatment for addiction is more effective and accessible than ever before.
Heroin Finds its Way into Small Wyoming Towns
A fact that might astonish many in Wyoming who don’t use drugs is that heroin has become a major trend in the state. In the past, Wyoming and other states with large spaces but small populations didn’t have to worry much about hard drugs infiltrating tight-knit family communities. Today, however, drug trafficking networks are complex and extensive, and even the smallest towns in Wyoming have discovered the easy availability of drugs.
Many people who get addicted to heroin start with painkillers like Vicodin or OxyContin they received from a doctor or even a family member. And yet, from these modest introductions can come intense addiction and pain. Heroin addiction can result in many medical problems, including:
- Collapsed veins
- Infections of the heart
- Neurological problems
- Hepatitis, HIV, and other transmittable infections
Treatment for heroin and prescription drug addiction has progressed greatly in recent years. Today, detoxing from opiates is much easier and more comfortable than it was in previous years. A good detox experience can lead to more confidence in recovery and a better chance of long-term abstinence from drugs.
Alcohol & Cocaine: Classic Party Drugs Result in Deadly Addiction
Alcohol and cocaine are other drugs that hook Wyoming residents each year. Many use alcohol and cocaine together: the alcohol helps them relax and loosen inhibitions, while the cocaine gives energy and extends the party with a euphoric high. Like any other drugs, these effects fade surprisingly quickly.
Research shows that cocaine actually “teaches” the brain to crave it by providing a reward whenever cocaine is used. More than almost any other drug, cocaine damages the brain’s ability to understand consequences and control actions. For this reason, the desire to party and have a good time often ends with trouble, be it legal trouble, relationship trouble, or financial trouble.
