Inpatient Vs. Outpatient Rehabilitation in Arkansas

One of the primary decisions when you or your loved one chooses between drug abuse rehabs in AR is deciding between Residental and Outpatient Rehab. Many people quickly choose outpatient rehab thinking it will be more convenient and cost less. While this is sometimes accurate, statistics prove those choosing residential treatment in 48-day, 60-day or 90-day programs are less likely to relapse long-term. Wherever you decide to get rehabilitation, the first step is making a choice!

One of the biggest problems for residents of Arkansas in terms of drug and alcohol abuse is painkiller abuse.

Drugs like OxyContin, Percocet, hydrocodone and others have been destroying lives - and taking them - for years. The Arkansas Substance Abuse and Mental Health Issues At-A-Glance published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) reports that the rates of past year non-medical use of painkillers in Arkansas among those over the age of 12, between the ages of 12 and 17, and between the ages of 18 and 25 are among of the highest in the country. Additionally, the use of illicit drugs other than marijuana among those in the 12-to-17 age group is also one of the highest in the nation. Alcohol Is a Common Substance of Abuse Rates of alcohol abuse and dependence across all age groups in Arkansas has routinely been at or below the national average in recent years, but the rate of illicit drug use is through the roof compared to other states.

Ranked in order of popularity, the following drugs were most often cited as the substance of choice among those seeking treatment in Arkansas:

  • Alcohol
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Opiates (other than heroin)

From 1992 through 2003, methamphetamine was the least common drug of choice among Arkansas drug rehab patients, but in 2004, numbers of meth users seeking treatment skyrocketed. By 2005, it had increased by about 20 percent in two years.

Multiple Substances of Abuse

One of the most prominent and worrisome trends to hit Arkansas in recent years is the increase in patients who require treatment for more than one drug of addiction. Not only has alcohol been mentioned less and less, when it is mentioned, it usually alongside other drugs, notably marijuana, opiate painkillers and methamphetamine. Additionally, the number of patients seeking help for three or more substances of abuse has increased from none in 1992 to 26 percent of all admissions in 2006.

More Outpatient recovery program Programs Than Inpatient Programs

In Arkansas, more than 70 percent of drug rehab patients choose an outpatient treatment program. There are a number of reasons for that, including:

  • Outpatient recovery program treatment programs are less expensive to run so there are more of them and more available spots for patients.
  • Outpatient recovery program programs are less expensive for patients as well, so many opt for the lowest cost rather than the most intensive treatment.
  • The waiting list is shorter for outpatient treatment programs than for inpatient drug rehab programs.
  • Outpatient recovery program treatment options allow for a "life as usual" approach. That is to say, there is a minimal impact on the patient's ability to continue going to work, attending school, being with family and friends, etc.

Treatment in Arkansas

In Arkansas, the number of people who are living with an active addiction and in need of treatment are high - and a large percentage of them are not getting the addiction treatment they need. The rate of unmet treatment need has been higher than the national average in recent years - for adolescents, it has been consistently above the US average.

Staying close by your home city is not always the best choice, as you are closer to the suroundings and circumstances that caused the drug and alcohol abuse in the first place. Particularly if you're considering exclusive or private options, there may be additional advantages in treating a long-term rehab stay like a vacation and going outside Arkansas. Many of the great treatment programs have services and bearings that make them feel like high-end resorts so rehabilitation can be refreshing as well as therapeutic.
