Navajo County is located in the northern portion of the state of Arizona. With a population of over 100,000 people as of the 2010 United States census, Navajo County is one of the ten largest counties in the state. But it also has one of the top ten largest drug problems in the state, with 64 drug overdose deaths occurring between 2015 and 2017 according to a report published by County Health Rankings and Roadmaps. This clearly shows the severity of the consequences but doesn't quite reveal the scope of the problem. No one knows how many more people are abusing substances but haven't died from drug overdose yet. One thing we do know is that drug and alcohol rehabilitation services could have potentially saved these people's lives and could definitely save the lives of many people that currently need help.

When people first search for treatment services in Navajo county, they will need to know what type of services they will need. Depending on what substances they've been taking, how long they've been taking them for, how much they take, as well as any physical or mental health conditions and medications they may take will determine what kind of help will be most effective for them. Some people may have medical issues that prevent them from doing any type of treatment that involves physical activity, which could change a lot when searching for a program. Additionally, some drugs may not be safe to come off of without medical supervision and specialized medications to prevent seizures or make the process tolerable. People abusing these drugs may be candidates for what's known as medical detoxification, a process where they are safely taken off drugs that cause severe physical dependence. But many people do not need medical detox and it can be very expensive.

There are two main forms of treatment for the person who is already detoxed or doesn't need medical detox services. Inpatient treatment is the most common form of rehabilitation in America and is considered the gold standard in substance abuse healthcare. Inpatient treatment is what most people think of when imagining drug and alcohol rehabilitation. These facilities house multiple patients for around four weeks on average, keeping them in a drug-free, supportive environment constantly while receiving treatment. At the end of the process, most patients either return home or transition into what's known as an outpatient treatment.

Outpatient treatment is where a person continues to live at home but goes to the facility multiple times per week for treatment sessions. This type of treatment is less intensive than inpatient and less restrictive. Because of this, it may not be a good option for someone with severe addiction or who has not been to treatment before. But for those who just completed inpatient treatment, it can be a way of getting continuing support while transitioning back to the responsibilities of life. For others, outpatient treatment may be their only option due to work or school, or some other situation that prevents them from being gone for weeks. In this case, any treatment is better than none, but one should try everything they can to prioritize their future over commitments that may seem more important right now. After all, a job a degree is useless if the person is another overdose death statistic.
