If you’re suffering from drug or alcohol addiction, or know someone who is, you understand all too well how devastating it can be.
However, with treatment you can find the recovery that may currently seem so elusive. Facility reviews and ratings of WV rehab programs can offer you the help you need to make the life-changing decision about whether to get help and where to access that help.
West Virginia has high rates of drug-related overdoses. Between 2014 and 2015, there was a 16.9% increase in overdose deaths (primarily from opioids).1 Overdoses increased again, by 13%, from 2015 to 2016.5 Opioids, such as prescription pain relievers and heroin, are especially problematic in West Virginia. In 2015 alone, West Virginia had one of the highest overdose rates in the country (41.5 per 100,000 residents).1
While treatment options do exist, research shows that only small percentages of West Virginia residents struggling with addiction or mental health disorders receive the help they need.
How much you’re asked to pay for a rehab program will depend on where you choose to attend treatment, how long you plan to stay, and the amenities that you determine are must-haves during that time.
While the cost may seem high, it can help to understand that most treatment facilities accept more than one type of payment (e.g., cash, insurance, or Medicaid). Also, 77% of West Virginia treatment facilities offer treatment at no charge for clients who cannot otherwise pay, and 47.6% offer sliding-scale services.3
The National Survey of Substance Abuse Treatment Services (N-SSATS) indicates that there are 103 treatment facilities in West Virginia. In a single-day count in 2015, there were 9,964 West Virginia residents enrolled in a substance abuse facility.3
The treatment centers in West Virginia offer various types of care, ranging from hospital inpatient and detoxification to regular outpatient treatment. The N-SSATS report shows that 100% of these facilities offer counseling and 98% offer transitional services, such as discharge and aftercare planning.3
Some of the specifically tailored programs in West Virginia include treatment for clients with co-occurring disorders, DUI/DWI clients, criminal justice clients, adolescents, seniors and older adults, and active-duty military members.3
There is no obligation to enter treatment and you can opt out at any time.
