Drug Treatment Facilities in Appomattox County, Virginia

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Substance abuse is an issue that has been affecting Appomattox County and its county seat, the city of Appomattox, for several years now. It has caused an important amount of damage within their community, and it is still present to this day. The focus will be on alcohol abuse, as this is what has caused the most harm. Firstly, there is alcohol-impaired driving which caused 4 fatalities between 2014-2018, and this number is 36% of the driving deaths that occurred in that same period, according to County Health Rankings. This can easily be avoided or prevented simply; if a person is going somewhere and know you will be drinking, they should plan ahead how you will be getting home. This can include calling a taxi or having a designated driver that will not be drinking. On the other end, if someone is hosting a party at their house and the guests are drinking, it is partly their responsibility to ensure that they have a safe way to get home. In addition to this previous statistic, 17% of the county's adult population reported heavy or binge drinking in 2017. Treatment is and always will be the best way for someone to overcome their addiction, no matter the drug. But some people may not know where to start from or where to look. For them, an assessment would be a great place to begin, as it will help guide them through the process. It consists of many questions about the person's addiction, including what drug they are abusing, for how long, etc., and these factors will be able to determine what type of treatment would be best. Regardless of the program one is referred to, the important point is that if they are fully committed, they can definitely recover from their addiction.
