West virginia Drug Rehab

west virginia Drug Rehab

West Virginia, being such a remote and rural state, means most drug problems involve the abuse and clandestine manufacture of methamphetamine and marijuana. Pharmaceutical drug abuse is common as well. Cocaine and crack cocaine tend to be widely available in most West Virginia cities. The demand for and the availability of heroin is limited, and opiate abusers tend to use prescription or over-the-counter based medications such as oxycontin or percocet. Marijuana poses the most common drug threat in the state. West Virginia consistently ranks in the top ten states for search seizure and destruction of marijuana. With drugs like oxycontin and other prescription medications making up a large percentage of the addiction in West Virginia, it makes sense that there are a high number of addiction treatment programs with detox facilities or that use buprenorphine / suboxone in their treatment. Greater than a third of all programs in West Virginia have services specifically geared towards treating physical dependency. There are also outpatient programs and counselling offices available to people throughout the state. If you need more information on any one of the almost seventy treatment programs in this state, please contact us toll free and speak with one of our counsellors.
