Drug Treatment Facilities in Caroline County, Virginia

Caroline County has been greatly affected by the abuse of drugs and alcohol, and this type of problem always brings consequences. The damage it has caused within the community is only further proof of the presence of such an issue. To help better understand this, we will be going over some recent statistics. First, excessive drinking is a practice that can cause devastating health problems, and in 2017, it was reported by 17% of the county’s adult population. Staying on this subject, there is also alcohol-impaired driving which caused 10 deaths between 2014-2018, accounting for nearly a quarter of all driving deaths, precisely 23%, according to County Health Rankings. Additionally, we have drug poisoning that has too led to many fatalities recently, with a drug overdose mortality rate of 29 deaths per 100,000 population for 2016-2018. Now, of course, treatment is always recommended when someone wishes to overcome their substance abuse problem, but there are many barriers that can present themselves in this process, including a language barrier. When someone is looking for treatment, they may feel reluctant in attending a program because they are not certain that they will be understood. However, there is always a solution, as everyone deserves to get the help they need. For example, there are treatment programs with Spanish-speaking personnel, which can be extremely helpful. These programs will allow for the person to feel completely safe in knowing that whatever question they have or troubles they run into, they will be fully and completely understood. This safety can be quite beneficial in a person’s recovery process and may help give them their best chance at a full recovery.
