Drug Rehab Centers in Glendale, Arizona

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Glendale is a city that is located in the central portion of the state of Arizona. It is located close to Phoenix, the largest city in Arizona, and this makes it susceptible to a lot of issues that come along with major cities, including drug addiction. In 2019, there were 20.8 deaths for every 100,000 people in the state of Arizona, according to a report published by America's Health Rankings. This rate was likely much higher in areas like Glendale due to its size and location. Because of this, drug rehabilitation programs in Glendale are needed to help save lives. Every person who dies from drugs is a life that could have been saved with the right help at the right time.

One of the leading causes of drug deaths everywhere is opioids. Opioids are drugs which when abused can cause death quite easily. This is because they are so potent and cause addiction so rapidly. Since drugs affect multiple systems at once, the body makes major changes to adjust to their continual presence. Now, the person must take a larger dose in order to achieve pain relief or get high. This can quickly lead to a situation where the person is consuming enough of the drug to be toxic, causing overdose death. Before this occurs, addicts should seek out help from the various substance abuse treatment programs in Glendale.

Thankfully, there are many ways to help save a person who is addicted to opioids. Narcan is a medication that rapidly reverses the effects of opioids and can save the life of someone who is overdosing. It has become widely available because it is so safe and is available as a nasal spray or injection. Anyone who overdoses and survives should get into drug treatment in Glendale immediately. It is not uncommon for that person to overdose again the next time they use drugs. For those who find withdrawal symptoms to be too big of a barrier to start treatment, medical detox exists to help make the process as comfortable as possible. A person can then begin treatment and not have to struggle with being uncomfortable. With all of these options for help, there is no reason why a person cannot conquer their addiction.
