Statistics on Substance Abuse in Quincy, MA

One of the biggest problems in Quincy is that it has the second highest number of deaths due to overdose among major cities in the state of Massachusetts. The US Census Bureau and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health have reported on this. The rate currently stands at 34.6 people for every 100,000. Only Lynn has a higher rate, standing at 40.75 for every 100,000. It is higher therefore, than those for Springfield, Lowell, and Brockton

The problem in Quincy is so serious, in fact, that few towns anywhere in the South Shore are seeing higher rates. And it seems that, no matter what officials do, there continues to be a growth in these rates. This is despite the city-wide implementation of the Narcan overdose revival program.

Fortunately, if you require help for a substance abuse problem, there are numerous detox and rehab facilities in Quincy, MA that you can choose from. They include:

  • Phoenix House Intensive Treatment Services
  • Northeast Addictions Treatment Center

Getting Help for a Drug or Alcohol Addiction in Quincy, MA

Most people who get help for an addiction do so because someone else has arranged an intervention. This may have been a friend, member of the family, colleague, medical professional, or even the court. Why, when, and how someone asks for help, however, is irrelevant, so long as they get the help that they need.

Recovery must begin with a period of detox. This is a chance of the body to get rid of any remainders of toxins and chemicals, leaving it clean. However, after detox, the mind isn't clean yet. In fact, cravings continue to exist, which is why it is so important that people are appropriately supported throughout their journey.

After detox, rehab commences. This can be done either on an inpatient/residential basis, or through outpatient services. Residential care is generally recommended, particularly in cases of quite severe dependencies or addictions, because it leaves people protected around the clock, enabling them to focus 100% on their recovery. That said, outpatient services are usually a lot more convenient because you can simply return home at the end of the day, and a lot more affordable as well.

Try not to let cost be a primary factor, however. Your insurance may cover more than you expected. There are also grants and other types of payment options available. You cannot put a price on your health and happiness.

Do make sure that your rehab facility also puts a proper aftercare program in place once you have completed rehab. This means that, once you return to the "real world", you will be properly supported. This will also help you to avoid relapse, although relapse is seen as part of the overall recovery process.
