Compare Columbia Recovery Centers
Columbia is located in Tennessee. Tennessee was ranked first among all 50 states for prescription drug use in 2007 to 2008. Prescription drugs accounted for more than 2,000 treatment admissions in 2010, more than any other drug. This is despite Tennessee enacting a controlled substances monitoring program. At 16.8 per 100,000 people, the rate of drug-related deaths exceeds the national average. The number of anti-drug campaigns and community programs in the state is limited, meaning more needs to be done to educate the population about drug abuse.
What You Might Experience at Treatment Facilities
You might experience fear, anger, denial, excitement, positivity and many other emotions when entering a treatment facility. You are away from your family and familiar surroundings, so it can be very scary; however, you will not go through it alone. The entire staff at the treatment facility is there to support you and help you recover from your addiction. It won’t be an easy experience. You will have bad days and perhaps times where you want to give up and quit but you need to stay strong.
Ask questions about your treatment plan if you feel uncomfortable.
