They say that everything is “bigger in Texas”, and that’s as true when it comes to addiction treatment and detoxification as it is for Texans’ ten-gallon hats. In addition to the Alamo, Tex-Mex food, music and film festivals, and that charming Southern drawl, Texas is becoming known for offering many top-notch detox facilities, many of which take advantage of the state’s hundreds of miles of Gulf coastline. At a Texas detox center, relaxation and serenity will quickly become second nature.
Texas Addiction & Detox Statistics
- Although Texas has been affected by the heroin epidemic like virtually all other states, alcohol remains the state’s biggest problem, seen in all demographics. For instance, it’s estimated at at least one in four adolescents in grades 7 through 12 have abused alcohol over the past month.
- Speaking of youths, Texas appears to suffer from a youth subculture in which alcohol abuse is common and perhaps even expected. According to surveys, approximately 12 percent of adolescents in grades 7 to 12 admit that the only way they consume alcohol is by binge drinking.
- Heroin has become a major issue nationwide, but it’s particularly problematic in Texas due to the state’s proximity to Mexico. In particular, Mexican cartels have been smuggling the drug into Texas before distributing it across the country. Being so close to the source, much of the heroin found throughout Texas is an extremely potent form of heroin known as Mexican black tar, which many consider to be one of the most potent forms of heroin that exists.
- Heroin in Texas has been found to be both stronger than most heroin found elsewhere and less expensive; this has resulted in heroin addicts experiencing prolonged periods of active addiction with the average being 12 years between the onset of addiction the sobriety.
- Over an eight-year period, accidental drug overdoses increased by an astounding 150 percent, which has attributed to the state’s recent focus on improving the quality and availability of addiction treatment.
Getting Sober in Texas
One of the great things about Texas is that, despite having its fair share of big cities, the majority of Texans are extremely accepting, down-to-earth people. Combined with an ever-growing recovery community, Texas is a truly great place to rehabilitate from an alcohol or drug problem. The atmosphere is laid-back, the people are friendly, the scenery is unforgettable; it’s the perfect backdrop as you get acclimated to recovery.
Texas Addiction & Substance Abuse Organizations
- The Texas Association of Addiction Professionals, or TAAP, is an organization that seeks to promote the advancement and knowledge of professionals in the addiction treatment field by allowing them to network with other professionals throughout the state.
- The Association of Substance Abuse Programs — also called ASAP for short — is a Texas-based group of coordinated leaders and community members who want to ensure that everyone in need has access to quality addiction treatment. As well, ASAP represents more than 60 substance abuse-related groups and organizations.
- While many organizations seem to consist of professionals, the Association of Persons Affected by Addiction — known as APAA — is a peer-led and peer-driven community comprised of recovered addicts as well as individuals who have addicted loved ones. The group’s mission is to educate communities throughout Texas and to provide support to those in need.
- The Hays Caldwell Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse is a private, Texas-based not-for-profit formed in 1984 and consists of both community members and addiction treatment professionals. Although the group does many things, its primary purposes include community outreach and addiction prevention through education.
- The LifeSteps Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition is a youth-oriented group that wants to increase awareness about the many dangers of underage drinking and drug use, educating youths about current and emerging drug trends. LifeSteps has ongoing partnerships with school districts, health care providers, lawmakers, and parents to help the group spread their message.
Major Addiction Treatment Expansion in the Lone Star State
Following in the footsteps of nearby Florida, Texas is quickly becoming a popular recovery destination. Federal and state representatives seem to have noticed this and have begun development on a number of state-of-the-art alcohol and drug rehabs throughout the state. For instance, with funding from the federal government, a $37-million, 80-bed treatment center is being build in Mansfield, located in Northern Texas. There’s even been additional funding provided to research new treatment methods such as the $1.4 million that’s been allocated for a new type of treatment for heroin and painkiller addiction.
