Drug & Alcohol Detoxification Facilities in Missouri

There are few states that embody the word “diverse” like Missouri does. The state offers a lot of everything: large cities, quaint towns, picturesque natural scenery, impressive buildings, people from all walks of life, and a thriving, melting-pot culture. However, despite having to much to offer, the state of Missouri is notorious for having an extremely low cost of living, making it an increasingly popular place for young adults who have just left the next, young families, or anyone who’s looking for a place to start anew. For these and other reasons, Missouri has become an ideal place for addiction recovery, with hundreds of addiction treatment and detox centers located throughout the state.

Missouri Addiction & Detox Statistics

  • Alcohol remains the most problematic mind-altering substance in the state of Missouri. According to surveys conducted in 2009, approximately 36 percent of Missouri residents over the age of 12 engage in binge-drinking behavior two or more times per week.
  • Across the entire U.S., opioids like heroin and prescription pain medication have reached such widespread recreational use that the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) refers to as an “epidemic”. The opioid addiction problem is prominent in Missouri, too, particularly among teens and young adults. In 2012, it was found that over 24 percent of admissions to programs for opioid addiction were individuals under the age of 24.
  • Opioid drugs and alcohol are substances that one might expect to be problematic in Missouri due to their widespread use throughout the rest of the U.S. However, Missouri also has a major problem with crystal methamphetamine. In fact, out of all the drug-related deaths that occur in Missouri, about 63 percent of them are directly due to the use of crystal meth.
  • State-funded studies have determined that the annual cost of illicit drug abuse on the whole of Missouri is at least $7 billion. Much of this cost is related to the burden of substance abuse on society, particularly when it comes to criminal justice, law enforcement, and education.
  • There are roughly 6.06 million people living in Missouri today. Of those individuals, roughly 10 percent either have substance abuse problems or are abusing chemical substances and, therefore, are at risk of developing substance abuse problems. As well, three in five Missouri residents with a substance abuse problem are male.

Getting Sober in Missouri

The population of Missouri might be diverse, but Missouri residents still have that Middle-America sensibility that makes them extremely welcoming, accepting, and gracious to all who visit the state. Anyone who decides to get sober in Missouri will find it extremely easy to sustain his or her recovery long-term, especially while being within reach of many other exciting places in the U.S.

Missouri Addiction & Substance Abuse Organizations

  • The Missouri Prescription Drug Monitoring Program NOW Coalition is a self-described “bipartisan” group consisting of individuals, groups, associations, and agencies that work together to advocate for legislation that will implement a statewide prescription drug monitoring program in Missouri, which is the only state that has not yet implemented a prescription drug monitoring program.
  • The Missouri Addiction Counselors Association, or MACA, is a nonprofit organization consisting of addiction counselors from all over the state to provide educational opportunities, training, and other types of support to improve the quality and effectiveness of addiction care in Missouri.
  • The Missouri Network for Opiate Reform and Recovery — called the ‘Mo Network’ for short — is an advocacy group that helps addicts get the treatment and services they need to overcome their addictions. As well, the group strives to improve community awareness about the ever-present dangers of opioid drugs.
  • The Missouri Recovery Network (MRN) consists of people in recovery, their families and friends, members and representatives of communities, and other allies who advocate for better treatment and more access to treatment for those in need. This group is particularly interested in increasing community awareness of addiction and the recovery process.
  • The Missouri Association of Addiction Professionals — also known as MAAP — is an organization that consists of addiction professionals and educators from throughout the state of Missouri. This group is concerned about making the most up-to-date training and treatment techniques available to all treatment providers to ensure quality of care.

Missouri Government Takes Action Against Opioid Addiction

Like the rest of the U.S., Missouri has been experiencing a major opioid addiction epidemic in recent years. However, a joint effort between Congress and the Missouri government will establish an inter-agency opioid task force within the state, ensuring that there are no pain management centers who are in violation of laws that pertain to the prescribing of controlled substances. This new legislation — which has been enacted elsewhere under the name CARA (Comprehensive Addiction Recovery Act) — will also bring a lot of additional funding to the state to use in improving access and quality of addiction treatment throughout Missouri.
