The city of Lubbock is in the state of Texas and is the county seat for Lubbock County. Substance abuse has been affecting this area of the state for many years now, and it has caused an enormous amount of damage in the community. Because of this, there is a great need for drug rehab services in Lubbock. For us to truly understand the drug scene, we will be looking at statistics from the city's county. For instance, there is excessive drinking which was reported by 19% of adults in Lubbock County in 2017, according to County Health Rankings. Additionally, alcohol-impaired driving caused a lot of deaths in the past few years. Between 2014 and 2018, 68 lives were lost because of those who decided to get behind the wheel even though they’d had too much to drink. This number accounts for 36% of the 191 driving deaths for this same period. Finally, there is drug poisoning which has too caused a lot of fatalities, with a drug overdose death rate of 133 deaths per 100,000 population for 2016-2018. Substance abuse is a very serious issue that should not be taken lightly since as we can see, it has the potential of wreaking havoc wherever it is present. Overcoming alcohol and/or drug addiction is not easy, and proper treatment is the best way to do so. One of the substance abuse treatment programs in Lubbock that someone can attend is inpatient treatment. This is a more comprehensive program since it requires that those attending live at the facility during the whole treatment. This is more intensive, but it can actually be beneficial for some individuals, as it allows for them to only focus on their recovery, without having any distractions from the outside world.
