Drug Treatment Facilities in Halifax County, Virginia

Last updated: 21 December 2021


Halifax County has been impacted greatly by the abuse of drugs and alcohol in these last years, and this includes its county seat, the city of Halifax. Substance abuse is a problem that has plagued our nation, and in the county, it has caused a great deal of damage, which the following statistics will prove. Firstly, there is drug poisoning that led to many fatalities, with a drug overdose mortality rate of 12 deaths per 100,000 population, according to County Health Rankings. More specifically, alcohol abuse also caused casualties, with 3 alcohol-impaired driving deaths, which accounts for 16% of all driving-related deaths. Some of these may have been caused or contributed to by excessive drinking, as it does impair a person's judgment and their ability to make good decisions. In Halifax County, 16% of the adult population reported either binge or heavy drinking in 2017. Treatment is always the most appropriate solution for someone to overcome an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. Inpatient or residential treatment is the common option as it is an intensive program, but some may not be able to afford it. It requires that the person lives at the facility, and if they have a family to take care of or don't want to leave their job, they won't be able to commit to that. But thankfully, there is an outpatient treatment that allows for someone to get the help they need without having to put their life on pause entirely. They can live at home and come to the facility regularly for group meetings and visits with substance abuse specialists. Anyone struggling with addiction deserves to be given the chance to make a full recovery.
