With a population of 175,381, the city is home to an increasing number of people who have a substance abuse disorder. One of the reasons for this is the proximity of the city to both Las Vegas (12.8 miles) and Paradise (10 miles), where drug and alcohol abuse is rampant.

Henderson Detox and Rehab Treatment

 

Those who live in the Henderson area have access to a number of detox and rehab facilities where they can seek treatment for their addiction. In fact, there are so many that people are provided with further information on how to choose a rehab option that is right for their needs. This information has proved to be essential, because recovery can only be successful if it is provided in the right environment, by the right people.

 

The available options in Henderson include:

 

  • Medically supervised detox, whereby people can rid their bodies of the last remainders of the chemicals they were addicted to. It is very important that this is medically supervised, because in some substances, such as alcohol, the side effects can be lethal.
  • Medically assisted therapy, which is a form of therapy whereby the user is in essence weaned back to sobriety by using various forms of medication, including methadone.
  • Intensive outpatient rehab treatment, where people attend a center several times per week in order to receive therapy and counseling.
  • Inpatient rehab treatment, whereby people check in to a facility and remain there for the duration of their treatment. Thirty days is generally the minimum, but it is recommended that those with severe addiction, or those who have already experienced a relapse, stay for longer - preferably 90 days.
  • Aftercare facilities, whereby those who have gone through detox and rehab can continue to receive support. This support includes ongoing therapy and counseling, sober living facilities, 12 step groups, and peer support networks.

 

Henderson authorities are also putting early intervention systems in place. There are worrying levels of young people in the area who use tobacco, and who move on to cannabis before they reach 18. Additionally, most find that alcohol is very easy to access. Both are gateway drugs to more dangerous substances, and Henderson aims to provide young people with strong and healthy alternatives to substance abuse.
