The Indiana Opioid Epidemic
When we think Indiana, we think blue collar America. We think Hoosiers, Larry Bird, and High School hoops. Work ethic and love of family runs deep in this state. Unfortunately, these values haven’t allowed Indiana to escape the wrath of the nationwide opioid epidemic. Drug and alcohol addiction and overdose keep rising and claiming thousands of lives.

A unique community-based detox and residential style extended care program that’s truly customized to the needs and unique circumstances of each individual.

The Statistics of Addiction in Indiana
According to Indiana University research, a staggering 1 in 12 residents are struggling with Substance Use Disorder (SUD). That’s a half a million people! But addiction infrastructure in the state simply cannot keep up. A recent study showed that there are just 20 qualified addiction professionals per 1000. It’s simply not enough. There are too many underserved regions, especially in the rural areas. When more people are dying in Indiana from drug overdose than from car accidents, it is obvious there is a major problem on our hands.
Primary Substances of Abuse in Indiana
A glance at the graph below shows what substances are driving addiction treatment admissions in Indiana. Although alcohol has the highest rate of SUD it is clear that those suffering from alcoholism are not getting treatment at the rates needed. One of the reasons for this the strong rate of denial associated with alcohol use disorder. Meth has long been a big concern in Indiana and shows here prominently.
The Indiana addiction frontlines
Thankfully, its not all bad news. The increasing toll has not gone unnoticed and many good people are on the frontlines waging war against the Indiana drug scourge. Treatment facilities staffed by compassionate professionals and people who value the preciousness of every human life, are available across the state. Yes, we need more of them. But the ones established are doing amazing work. The entire continuum of care is available, including detox services, inpatient and outpatient rehab programs, and aftercare support.
