Addiction in Prescott, AZ: What are the Contributing Factors?

There are many reasons people turn to addiction. The following shows a recent story about increases in alcohol usage due to the national pandemic.

An article in the Prescott eNews reported that more people were turning to alcohol because of boredom, especially during the Coronavirus pandemic. This article reported that 1 in 5 people said that since the lockdown started, their alcohol tolerance has increased. And half of drinkers started making cocktails at home during the lockdown. Nationwide, this has been known by the name “Quarantinis” and has increased the sale of strong spirits by 34.1%.

34% of Arizonans say they have been bored and this has prompted experimentation with stronger liquors. This is added to stress, both mentally and economically.

These hard liquors have more alcohol by volume, which makes a person get drunk faster. Considering tolerance has increased for 17% of the people surveyed, there is a high possibility of alcohol dependence and even addiction.

Drug and Alcohol Programs Available in Prescott, Arizona

There are many options for treatment for a person who struggles with drug or alcohol addiction. It is important to understand what each treatment offers in order for someone to be able to make an informed decision about what kind of program they choose.

Prescott, Arizona - Types of Detox

Many times, detox is a crucial first step to recovery. Detox is the process of removing the harmful toxins that drugs or alcohol causes from the body. The biggest goal is to safely manage the withdrawal symptoms that come from stopping a substance. To determine the type of detox, these questions need to be answered:

  • What is the person addicted to?
  • How long have they been addicted to that substance?
  • What is their history with substance abuse? Have they ever gone through withdrawal?
  • Are they currently using more than one substance?
  • How much of the substance do they use each time they use?

Recovery is possible without detox, but many times, the withdrawal symptoms are very overwhelming for people to handle on their own and they can oftentimes relapse without the support of a committed detox program.

However, some substances do require detox because withdrawal could lead to potentially deadly medical consequences for the individual. These substances include:

  • Alcohol
  • Benzodiazepines, such as  Xanax, Ativan and Valium
  • Barbiturates, such as Amytal and Butisol

Detox is highly recommended for those addicted to:

  • Opiates such as heroin or fentanyl
  • Stimulants such as methamphetamine, Cocaine and Adderall
  • Prescribed opioids such as oxycodone and hydrocodone

After detox, the rehab program begins. For many people, they will choose an inpatient rehab. This offers the highest level of care available. The patients will check in to a facility to live there and receive intensive programs during their program. There is an expert staff to implement these programs. They will live with other people who are going through similar situations. They will receive medical and emotional support during the process and will be taught how to live without the drug. They will attend various therapy sessions while there, too.

Outpatient treatment is a type of program that is focused on therapy but does not require a person to check-in to a treatment facility. This is typically for those who have already gone through rehab and can be used as a bridge from inpatient rehab back into “normal” living, without the drug. It takes a strong commitment as the person would need to attend their therapy sessions throughout the week. They should also have a strong support system at home. Outpatient rehab is not recommended for people who are new to rehab, are addicted to multiple substances, or who have untreated co-occurring disorders.

Intensive outpatient programs, or IOPs, are one kind of outpatient program. They provide the same kind of intensive care and counseling as an inpatient program without the person having to stay at the facility. There are benefits to this for the person in the program, some of those being:

  • They can still go to work or school
  • They have a support system at home
  • They have access to discreet treatment
  • Outpatient treatment is more affordable
  • Less life disruptions

The person in this program would attend a varied number of meetings throughout the week, depending on their need.

Partial hospitalization programs, or PHPs, are programs offered in hospitals where people attend meetings during the day time, usually no more than 20 hours a week. This is done in the hospital setting so there can be medical staff on hand for clinical needs, such as withdrawals. These can be used as a transition down from inpatient rehab or for treatment when a person relapses.

When a person is finished with their program but is not quite ready to transition back to their previous living situation, they might move into a sober living home. This is a residential facility where a person will live with other residents who are also in recovery. They are allowed to come and go and are encouraged to work or go to school but do have strict rules they must follow. Some of those rules are:

  • They have to pay rent and may need to pay for their own food and utilities.
  • They may be subject to periodic drug testing.
  • They must remain sober at all times, even when they are not at home.
  • Certain mouthwashes or cooking aides may not be allowed because of alcohol content.
  • They must do chores around the house.
  • They have a curfew every night.
  • They must have gone through some kind of addiction treatment.

While some rules can be different for each sober living home, these are ones that are generally found wherever a person will go.

12-Step Programs and SMART Recovery

Both Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous are available to help people get the support they need during recovery. These 12-Step programs have been very influential in so many addicts’ lives. SMART Recovery is an alternative that people may want to consider if they want a non-12-Step option.

There are several AA meetings that take place in Prescott each week.
