Drug Treatment Facilities in Goochland County, Virginia

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Goochland County's county seat is the city of Goochland, and they have definitely suffered from the consequences that are associated with substance abuse. The presence of this issue within a community should be taken seriously, as the damage it can cause may be quite devastating. The following statistics will focus on alcohol abuse, as this is what is most present and concerning at the moment. For instance, nearly one-fifth of the adults in the county reported excessive drinking, 18% to be exact. This can be very dangerous, as binge drinking even once can lead to terrible effects on a person, both physically and psychologically. Drinking excessively can affect how a person acts as well by impairing their judgment and coordination and can increase their chances of injuring themselves or other people. In fact, between 2014 and 2018, alcohol-impaired driving caused 11 deaths in Goochland County, which accounts for 39% of all driving deaths for this period, according to County Health Rankings. When someone is looking for the proper treatment that will suit their needs, they are several factors that may be considered as barriers, including language. For example, if a person's first language is Spanish, they may feel reluctant to attend a program with English-speaking staff only, as they might feel they will be misunderstood, etc. Thankfully, treatment programs for Spanish-speaking individuals do exist, as everyone deserves to get help for their addiction problems, no matter what language they speak. Being as comfortable as possible when working on your recovery and sobriety is very important, and such programs give these people that chance.
