Alabama has been making strides toward decreasing the overall dangerous consumption of illicit drugs and alcohol in the state, but there is still progress to be made.

Every year, surveys are taken to better understand the needs of residents in relation to drug and alcohol abuse and treatment. According to these studies, published in Alabama Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), between 7 and 8 percent of Alabama's population is dependent on an illicit substance at any given time. Though this is lower than the national average, there are still thousands of Alabamans who are suffering with a chronic addiction and in desperate need of help through medical treatment and psychotherapeutic intervention. Popular Substances of Abuse in Alabama One of the first questions asked of patients entering drug addiction treatment is: "What is your drug of choice?" This answer alone can dictate the style and type of treatment that is necessary for long-term abstinence and healing. In Alabama, the trends have remained steady over the past 10+ years.

In order of popularity, the top drugs of abuse in the state are:

  • Alcohol
  • Cocaine
  • Marijuana
  • Opiates (not heroin)
  • Methamphetamine

One thing that has changed over the past decade is the number of people in search of help for dependence on drugs only - not drugs and alcohol. Drug-only admissions have climbed from 17 percent of admissions in 1993 to 48 percent of admissions in 2006.

The Need for Addiction Treatment in Alabama

The goal is that everyone in Alabama who needs treatment for a chronic drug dependence will get the help they need. Unfortunately, every year, thousands of Alabamans continue to live with an active addiction and do not seek treatment.

In recent years, between 5.5 and 6 percent of those who need treatment in the state do not enroll in rehab.

For every day this is allowed to continue, untimely death due to overdose or accident is a hovering threat.

Addiction Treatment Options in Alabama

The treatment options for those struggling with addiction in Alabama are relatively slim compared to other parts of the country. There is little funding available to supply adequate resources to government-funded facilities and more than half depend heavily on this financial support to stay up and running. The number of inpatient program options is low, and it's even harder to find substance-specific treatment help that utilizes the latest cutting-edge research.

For many Alabamans, the best bet is to opt for private drug addiction treatment programs that are out of state.

These private centers offer a wide range of treatment options, a variety of therapies, and different program types that fit every family's needs. There is little to no waiting list and the standard of care is always head and shoulders above government-funded facilities.

Is Out-of-State Drug Rehab the Right Choice for Your Family?

There are a number of benefits for enrolling in a drug addiction treatment program that is out of state, including:

  • Increased privacy of care
  • Buffer from stresses at home
  • High-end treatment
  • Increased therapeutic options
  • Intensified focus on recovery

Remaining close to your home city is not always advantageous, as you are closer to the people and circumstances that caused the alcohol use in the first place. Particularly if you're considering executive or exclusive options, there may be extra benefits in treating a long-term rehab stay like a vacation and going outside Alabama. Many of the great treatment clinics have assistance and locations that make them feel like four-star resorts so rehabilitation can be renewing as well as therapeutic.
